Expect the Unexpected: My Very First Hub
In the spring of 2012 I began my writing career with HubPages as an attempt at using my writing to help others and earning some money from my efforts. Having been trained as a Creative Writer, I wanted to upkeep my writing skills and begin building a writing platform. My desire all along has been to turn my writing into a profitable career.
It's always amazing to look back from the depths of where you've come, and be encouraged at the long and strenuous road you've walked. My very first Hub had no coherent flow, no pictures, no paragraph breaks, and wasn't broken into capsules. Yikes, at 199 words, it's no wonder it had a very low score.

Chances are the story of spending the night in a Thai prison because your hemp seed protein powder was mistaken for the other white stuff, will be your go to story for entertaining your guests at dinner parties. Don't let a little road bump ruin your trip. Your worst mishap will most likely be one of your most treasured memories.
