I've been writing and publishing here on HubPages for about 4 months now. I know my profile says I've been a member much longer than that, but the truth is I didn't publish my first Hub until just over four months ago. I signed up at a time when I was extremely busy and really didn't have time to sleep let alone write and publish articles. My account just sat dormant for well over a year before I ever read my first article let alone publishing anything. Honestly I still have very little time to devote to writing and all the other great things there are to do here at the Hub, but I have found some time here and there, and it has been a very rewarding experience; I'm so glad I made the time. The point of this project was to say thanks to all of my followers, but after thinking about it I simply want to say thank you to all the wonderful people here at HubPages. Not only my followers, but all those who make this such a great place to spend those few hours I have for whatever it is I want to do. You know; the people who write so eloquently it makes me green with envy and those who take those wonderful vibrant pictures that make my photographs look like a three year old’s crayon scribbles. Not that there isn’t something wonderful and vibrant about the scribbles of a three year old. Some of my favorite pictures are on my fridge and were created by my kids at about that age. The point is that there is so much talent and kindness here it has given me a new perspective of the world, which I previously thought was much darker and conceited than it obviously is. Of course, I don't want to leave out all the thoughtful questions and answers, and the interesting forum topics and debates. It is just refreshing to sign in and discover how the minds of others work and tap into the knowledge that so many people are willing to share with the rest of us.
Of course, there is a special place in my heart for the kind people who have taken the time to read my writing and follow me so they can read even more of my ramblings. I might not have been near as active as I have, if it weren't for some of my most faithful followers. They have encouraged me with their thoughtful comments and ideas, and the fact that they keep reading what I write inspires me to keep on writing. I admit that I was a bit skeptical of publishing any of my writing at first. I suppose it was fear of rejection, or maybe just receiving no recognition at all. There is likely nothing more discouraging for a writer than not having any readers. I can deal with readers not agreeing with me, and even not liking what or how I write, but to simply be ignored would probably deter me from publishing anything new at all. I did decide to share some of my writing, and people have been reading and responding; as long as that is the case I’ll keep on writing. I also want to point out that my followers are also great writers, who have taken that chance of putting their thoughts out there for all of us to enjoy. I can’t mention all of them, but I’m am going to point out some of those who have been the most loyal and encouraging, so you might have a chance to see some of their great writing and photography.
phdast7 is a great writer who is always encouraging and helpful, I recommend reading some of her Hubs for some well presented and educated insight into history as well as other various topics.
Civil War Bob also likes to write about history as well as other various topics, and always offers a good laugh along with some great information. He is always there with a thoughtful comment whether we agree on the topic or not.
teaches12345 likes to write about parenting and teaching among other things, and she is great to follow and to have as a follower.
rahul0324 seems to be like the busy bee; always reading and commenting on Hubs of multiple subjects. He is a tremendously talented poet and a great story teller. If you get the chance check out some of his work you won’t be disappointed.
Alastar Packer is yet another history writer who also incorporates some chilling paranormal accounts into his historical information. If you get some extra time and are up for a good ghost story read some of his writing.
I could go on all day, but only have so much time. I'm sorry for all the wonderful Hubbers who follow me that I didn't get to mention, and I want all of you to know that I appreciate you very much. Thanks again to all of my followers, those who have read any of my material, and all the talented writers who make HubPages so great. I wish nothing but the best for each of you.
