I have been writing on HubPages now for a little over a year and and a half and I thoroughly enjoy it. I enjoy writing about Society, Politics, History and Sports and whatever interests me. I am well read and have strong opinions on many subjects. I am enjoying myself. As of today I have 63 Hubs. I think I'm getting better. I'm not in it for the money. (not that i've made any) But if I make a few dollars in the process that would be ok!
