Hi, welcome to my HubPages profile. My name is Bill, and I live here in Western Massachusetts at the foot of the Berkshires. My wife and I have many interests but we especially love to travel, take lots of photos, be outdoors, and go places we've never been before. I am also an avid runner and love most outdoor activities and sports.

I must say that HubPages can be quite addicting, sort of like traveling. I love the concept and see myself doing this for the foreseeable future. I've never considered myself to be a writer, numbers and math were always my strong suites, but I'm learning more every day and I love sharing the things that I'm passionate about in life. My articles are mainly about the travels we have taken and how others can benefit from our discoveries, research, and planning. As much as I love to travel, I also really enjoy the planning and research that goes into making every trip a wonderful experience.

If you like to write and want to share your knowledge, travels, stories, photos, and passions with others consider joining the HubPages community. It cost nothing to join HubPages, and it really is a wonderful community of talented writers willing to share their expertise and knowledge.

Thanks for stopping by.

      Help, what happened to my traffic?

      5 years ago

      I went away on vacation for two weeks from Sept 1 - 16 and during my time away something drastic happened to my traffic.  I went from averaging about 150 views per day to almost nothing.  And it all happened almost overnight on Sept 12th?  Did I get myself into Google's doghouse...

      Duplicate Content

      6 years ago

      Can someone help me out with this.  I submitted a Hub yesterday morning and a few hours later it was unpublished and marked as Duplicate Content.  I've done some research on this and I don't see how this can be?  I only publish here on HubPages so I'm confused as to how my content...
