Violated by my own Hubpages violation
I'm seriously mortified.
As a writer I had been recommended to HUBPAGES so got started yesterday and decided to use some of my own material that has gone down well with others before. Using one of my most popular articles this year I set about getting in on to my hub hoping to share insight and perspective with others interested enough to read it.
Shock..horror I awoke today to a very polite but firm email basically letting me know I had committed a violation. Well, for me, this was awful - still in my PJs and here I was being accused of being a violator!
OMG - What had I done? Who had I done it to?
When I quickly realised I had violated myself I wasn't too phased and actually I was really delighted because what had been a simple sharing of thoughts and experience with others had become a well read document which could easily be found.
I am getting there in terms of exposure and I know that what I had written was, indeed, a worthwhile read, even if I say so myself ! I was suddenly delighted by my hubpages.com message of violation. Not that I want to be committing any more violations on my hubpages activity however it demonstrated I'm not half bad at doing what I do and, in a seriously swamped writers world, this type of feedback can be hard to get!
Confidence in your writing is one thing but its quite a different thing building your confidence when your audience often remains silent, as mine does.
To know people have read and digested my publications and maybe even slightly adjusted their own mindset or approach to success in their business or personal endeavours is enough to keep me smiling all day long! This is the name of my game.
I thank you most sincerely Hubpages.com for the violation warning. You have got my day off to a flying start!
No matter what life throws at you, turn every negative (or constructive) experience into a positive one.
I just did and it feels sooo good.
