Hey guys! I wanted to say I'm super excited to announce I've published my second novel in under a year. It's available now for download in the Amazon store as an e-book and will also be available in paperback version in the next 3 to 5 days. <snipped>It's called Familiar Spirits, Book 1 of...
Just wondering if it's only me or if there's an error...my earnings have been showing at 0.00 for the past 5 days. Is this being worked on? I know it's incorrect.
So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...
On my newest hub, I notice there are no Next/Last hubs being shown at the bottom of my newest hubs. These are the hubs that are in the same "group" as the published hub. I'm not sure why they're missing? The group is definitely assigned to the hub...weird. Anyone else noticed this?
Please tell me what comes to your mind when you hear the word "witch" or "witchcraft". I would like your honest thoughts and opinions. Are you scared of witches? Do you believe "witches" are not real or are they real? Are they misunderstood or are they indeed devil...
Do you all ever get soooo many negative comments on a single hub that you just get tired of dealing with it? If it was all positive comments that wouldn't bother me, heck I even like a good debate from time to time...but to have hundreds of comments from random people trying to shame my writing or...
Last year our tax documents were through Paypal, is that the same this year or has that process changed again? I need to know ASAP so I can get my taxes done...this is the last thing I'm waiting on. Any help? If it's through HP, how do I get a copy? I haven't received one via email or mail yet...
So are we getting tax info. through Paypal or through Hubpages this year? I don't see my info. in Paypal and Hubpages has a button showing "receive 1099 electronically"...so I'm awfully confused. Did the process change again?
Does anyone else feel that going through and deleting hubs that don't get any views is a positive way to generate more traffic to other hubs? I just feel like my score will be brought down via Google/ Panda whatever if I leave up hubs that don't get ANY traffic. I usually wait until they have...
I recently found that someone had stolen one of my hubs and literally copy and pasted it into his own space on bubblews.com. He didn't even have enough sense or time to take my name and copyright symbols off of the article itself before posting it under his account!!!!! Here's his plagiarized...
Okay, so here's the deal. My other computer where I had my videos stored has crashed and has gone bye-bye. The videos that I've uploaded to Hubpages are only here now. How can I get them back as a file on my computer? I can't seem to figure out an easy way of doing this. Any suggestions?
I am filling out my 1099 Misc Form to submit with my taxes but cannot turn it in because I do not have Hubpages Federal Tax ID #. Does anyone have it on their form from last year? Or does someone know how I can get the number so that I can submit my taxes? Thanks!
So how about these nurses who have gotten fired because they refused the mandatory flu shots? The hospital that these nurses worked at for years in Indiana began requiring flu shots this year, and eight or nine of them refused...and they were all fired. Understandable that the hospital wants to...
Since there is no way to block a particular hubber, how can I get them to stop trying to leave rude comments on my hubs? I have one person in particular who comes back at least once a week to harass one hub of mine, which I keep deleting...but he keeps insisting on leaving the same rude comment...
Why does it seem that many obstetrics nurses are unkind to students?It just seems to be a common thread on the obstetrics floor at my clinicals hospital that the nurses are non-too-thrilled to have students around. Some of them are down-right rude, even though we try to always be polite and...
The word "ghetto"If I used the word "ghetto" to describe an institution's inability to do something, is that word offensive to African Americans? It wasn't used to degrade a person but used as a term to describe the cheapness of a company. What do you think?
Every time I click on Hot, Best, Or Latest tabs on a profile or in a topic, nothing happens. I've tried in two different browsers - firefox and chrome...same problem on two different computers as well.
Has anyone who is a witch been to Salem? Did you find that it's as special as they like to have everyone think it is...meaning, did you find it had meaning to you as a witch or was it pretty much an old town with a history that modern-day pagans like to fluff up? Love to hear your opinions!
What is your favorite herb to use in an herbal remedy and why?
Do you do shadow work? Have you ever done shadow work? What do you think shadow work is all about?
I am unable to publish my hub because it says that the video is still processing; however, it's said that for the past 2 hours now...this seems a little long for a 3 and a half minute video to be processed...am I right?
I've tried to upload a video twice now. It is in the proper format and is within the size limit, but everytime it's done thinking, it throws a pop-up with a java script error ending in json/n. I'm assuming this is a website problem?
I published a video hub about an hour ago and it's still not showing on my profile page...which is unusual. Is there something going on with the video hubs? I've never seen it take quite this long to show up on my profile.
How long does it normally take for a video to be processed for a video hub? Just curious!
How do I report plagiarism to Hubpages? Some other content farm author on this site below literally copied & pasted my entire hub! I already contacted the website and told them to take my article down and I directly contacted the author to ask her to take it down...but what if they don't? What...
Many people for centuries have believed in faeries, fairies, or what some call the "wee folk". Have you had any experiences with fairies or have you possibly seen fairies? I've heard stories of little girls seeing fairies dancing in fields or in their very bedrooms...do you have any...
Welcome to Hubpages. Let me know if you have any questions!
Have you ever felt unhappy in your marriage and try to gulp down those feelings? Maybe you try to convince yourself that you are truly happy? What if your significant other says that he/she loves you but doesn't necessarily demonstrate it?
I had someone recently try to discourage me from going into nursing school...I know there's pros and cons to every job, including being an RN...but why do you think she would feel so strongly against it? Are you a nurse and possibly hate it?
Just recently my three and a half year old daughter (who by the way is absolutely beautiful and usually very sweet) has been lashing out when she is corrected or asked to do something. She spits, hits me (without me even touching her!), screams bloody murder and will rip her room apart (throwing...
If you believe in reincarnation as I do, you might believe in what many people call "soul-mates". I'm not sure I believe in soul-mates the way that these people do, though. I don't think soul-mates are people that we should be spending every one of our lives with...if we did, then we...
Last night, I was sitting in my bathtub and the sink faucet literally turned on full blast by itself. I tried to logically talk myself out of the idea that it was paranormal, but I know that it couldn't have been anyone in the house. I didn't turn on the sink, and my husband had left the bathroom...
How do you all incorporate Yule into the mainly commercialized and Christian holiday of Christmas? Most of us probably have families that celebrate Christmas, not Yule...so how do you celebrate in your own special way? Obviously a Christmas Tree has Pagan roots and so does holly boughs and...
Is anywhere here into pantheism? Can you explain a little bit about it or possibly point me into a good resource for research. I'm curious to learn more than the basics.
You know, the more I study religion in its different forms, and the deeper I get into my spirituality, the more I realize that every religion is doing the same things...and they're worshiping and following the same being. That being is the one power...the power that's in all of us, the power that's...
I have. It happened actually very randomly and unexpectedly. I was away at a work convention (believe it or not) and was in a relaxed state of mind, and the lighting was a bit low as we were inside a convention hall with no windows in particular. I began seeing these waves of transparent light...
Do you believe in the Summerland or something similar such as Tir Na Nog or Heaven, etc.? Do you also believe in reincarnation or a recycling of energy? What do you, as a Pagan, believe in as far as life after death? For me, I am a believer in the Summerland (I also refer to it as Tir Na Nog from...
At this point in my spiritual path, I don't relate to one particular Wiccan Tradition but consider myself eclectic solitary, as many others do. I incorporate a bit of Irish, Native American, and even Egyptian Traditions into one that I call my own. How about you?
Samhain is fast approaching and is a time of change and death to the old self. To me, Samhain represents new beginnings. We can't have new beginnings without endings to old ways. It is a representation of death, but not just death of the physical. I do also honor my ancestors on Samhain and past...
Welcome to Hubpages. Do you need any help getting started?
What is your novel "Searching for Amelia" all about? Welcome to Hubpages.
Have you ever had an experience with a UFO or possibly believe that you were abducted by aliens? Do you believe in aliens?
If you've chosen a pantheon or tradition, which god is your patron god and which goddess is your matron goddess? I tend to switch back and forth, but my matron goddess tends to always stay the Celtic Rhiannon goddess and my patron god switches back and forth between Lugh and Pan. How about you...
So amidst all of the misconstrued and prejudiced movies on witchcraft today, The Mists of Avalon was a TV movie that aired back in the late 90s (I believe) based on a book written by Marion Zimmer Bradley. Have you seen it and what do you think about the way it portrays the old religion and the...
What is your most spiritual experience with the Divine? Whether you believe in the gods or a god and a goddess or god...what was your most spiritual moment when you knew that you heard the voice of god or goddess or you felt them speak to you or around you?
Has anyone seen or had an experience with a being that you thought to be a faery or fairy? I have and I was wondering if anyone else has. Please share your experience here...no jokes or poking fun please.
What does the god and the goddess do for you and your life? What type of connection do you have with the two of them, separately? Or together? Do they make you a better person, etc.
How many totems or animal spirit guides can one person have or is supposed to have? I feel as though I have five...if that's possible. The wolf, the deer, the horse, the dragonfly, and the owl. Possible?
Why is it that there's an ad for a Russian Mail-order bride on one of my hubs about a natural supplement? That seems a bit off-topic, don't ya think? Weird!
I'm going to be making a big welcoming fall dinner, with herbed chicken, green beans, acorn squash and apple cider. Probably lighting a ton of candles and being thankful for the harvest and what the god and goddess have given to us. What are you all doing in celebration of Mabon?
I believe in Jesus, God, and a Goddess. I don't condemn anyone for what they believe, as long as it harms no one else. I am open-minded to others opinions and believe that everyone is on their own spiritual paths, all different and yet all alike. I believe that when I die, I will be reincarnated...
I've had it once before when I was about 20 years old, sleep paralysis that is. If you don't know what it is, it can be described by feelings of being paralyzed or suffocated in your sleep. Although scientists say that you're not actually sleeping, your mind has woken up but your body feels...
I received notification that I was getting another accolade for 100 forum posts, but I haven't seen it post to my profile and it's been at least 24 hours. Any ideas how long it takes to post?
What do you all believe as far as creation/evolution, a little bit of both? As a Wiccan we believe in a creation of sorts, that ties into evolution in certain aspects (at least I do)...what do you all believe...and I'm asking the Pagans here.
Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other people have different lives and different experiences, and let them believe how they...
Have you ever died in your dreams? You know how people say that "if you die in your dream then you'll die in real life"? Well, I don't believe this as I've proven it wrong twice. I've died twice in my dreams, and each time my soul leaves my body in the dream and shoots off into space...I...
I have heard many people say that God is the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, all in one. When I've asked them, so is God a male? They usually reply, well no...but we refer to him as the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost. That to me seems as though he is male, so what gender is God to...
So, if the people on earth were Pagan before Christ ever got here, where did they go? Heaven or Hell? What if they never heard the name of Jesus or knew about the Jewish faith, is that fair to send them all to Hell?
Why does everyone think that the Bible was written and put together by God? Don't people realize that there are many holy books and manuscripts that have been excluded from the Bible? St. Thomas Aquinas wrote one and it was omitted from the Bible by a group of people a few hundred years after Jesus...
Do you find it hard to tell people that you are Pagan? Is it even harder to explain that you are Wiccan or a Witch? I've found that on the internet, it's easy for me to be "out of the broom closet" so to speak; however, in personal life...it seems as though everyone around me is either...
My husband doesn't particularly like the fact that I've recently told him that I am Wiccan through and through. I've sort of hid it from him for awhile, well, not necessarily hid it from him but never came right out and said "I'm Wiccan". He supports me in that he thinks I should believe...
Last night of swimming lessons for my three year old, they decide to have playtime , tons of kids and five or six instructors/lifeguards on duty. They're in the shallow end with slides and whatnot but the shallow end gets deeper towards one end...maybe almost four feet. My daughter was in the...
Why is my hubscore going down? I'm 89 now, when at one point I was up to 96.
I've made at least $20 through the Hubpages ad program, successfully associated a paypal account with it, and successfully submitted tax information for it. Why is it that I have no earnings in my Paypal account? My balance is $0.00 as of today...so do I not get paid on my earnings through...
Hi! I'd love to meet fellow Pagans and Witches on Hubpages. Share with me your beliefs and pantheon, if any. Your favorite holiday/Sabbat? Any other encouraging thoughts or words of love to share? I am an eclectic solitary witch, looking to meet and commune with other open-minded and loving Pagans...
Hi, LucyHannah...what do you plan on writing about, love?
I decided to do some google searching of my own hub topics to see where my hubs were ranking in google SEO and found out that about five of my hubs were posted to some website's facebook page with no direct link back to my hubs. The website is called ggberry.com and is some sort of travel blog...
Lately I feel as if I'm doing everything I can to increase my number of followers. I follow others, I comment nicely on their hubs, I post fan mail and try to connect with people who have similar interests...and yet, I'm losing followers instead of gaining them. Any ideas?
When do you think women started wearing lingerie? In Medieval Times? Ancient Times? Maybe more recently in the Edwardian or Victorian periods?
Is there such a thing as being an Agnostic Pagan...or a Pagan-Agnostic? Meaning, can I be agnostic but feel very connected to nature and still find the old beliefs quite intriguing and spiritual?
Hi, I am having issues for the first time with uploading pictures to my hub. It is only with one particular hub, when I go to browse my computer's libraries, my pictures that I have saved are not showing up anywhere. Therefore, I can't upload them. I've gone back and re-sized the pictures and...
I had a friend/reader recently ask me how she could get my hubs on kindle...I didn't think there was a way...does anyone know of an easy way for her to access my hubs on kindle or would I have to save them in a PDF form and upload them to her kindle? Thanks!
