Birthdate on HubPages: September 9, 2009

It's been an awesome, fruitful and inspiring years of writing articles, earning some accolades, widening my horizons as I exist on this exceptional online writing community along with famous writers from other countries.

This 2017, I am now on my eight year as a hubber. And I am currently serving my barriofolks as their barangay secretary. I may not be an active hubber nowadays, but I always log on to post comments to my fave and new hubbers. I hope you do it for me, too.

The power of written words is so exciting as I utilize the gifts that the Almighty God has given me.

Various interests are building up inside my mind and it show on the types of hubs that I am sharing with you.

1) Travel & Places, 2)Tropical Cooking, 3)Health-Conscious, 4) Practical Photography, 5) Music Series, 6)DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Project, 7) Tips on HubPages, 8) Politics Watch, 9)HubPages Success Stories,10)Trivialities in Life

I'm also updated with topics, like: Business, Values, Recipes, Reality Shows, Online Marketing (Google AdSense and all) among others.

As HubPages' door opens for me, several windows of opportunities brought excitement in my online world.

Check the dashboard of my Blogger account: http://www.claimingmyprize.blogspot.com/ The Lemurian's Scroll. Now, it spawned a new blog site for Random Acts of Kindness and several others, including Tropical JOE.

I want to keep myself be reminded of these words:

We're all travelers in life. Sharing our experiences, whether bad or good, is the best thing to do in this site. You'll learn something from me and I'll learn something from you in return.

I hope you and I, as responsible hubbers, can pass the torch of truth and wisdom to all HubPages readers through writing articles that will help make this world a better place to live in.

Feel free to join HubPages by simply signing up. The rest will be history in your hubbing life.

I recently joined myfreecopyright.com in order to protect my articles on this site. You can e-mail me @ my Yahoo!account: <ireno_alcala1971@yahoo.com> if you want to use my hubs for reference.
