This is my 100th hub here in HP and I would like to thank everybody during my stay here. They make my stay here worthwhile and productive.
HP was recommended to me by my former colleague in one of her email to me two months ago. We worked together in a university setting in which we co-authored research papers on population related issues and sociological notes, mostly Demography in nature. It deals mainly with statistics and market research. At first I don’t know if I am capable of writing because I am used to write in a more scientific way of writing, introduction, objective, review of literature, data, analysis and findings, conclusion kind of thing. In HP, you can write your opinion, incites, tips and you can share your personal life too. If you want to earn, I learned that you should a good grasp of what the people may want to know. I learned that good writers doesn’t necessarily earn money too.
When I signed up, I was contemplating whether I will join or not. I am used to writing more than thirty pages and I might not deliver the kind of articles worth reading. I don’t know anything about Search Engine Optimization (SEOs), selling online etc. and If I want to earn I should be serious about all of these things, this I learned while reading posts in the forum. Honestly, I am not expecting to earn anything here. I checked my earnings this morning and it is nearly 20 US dollars, wow.
I just want a community and to share what I know. HP became my niche, at one time I was addicted to it, but now, I am trying to balance my activities. Whereas before life is very simple, work, listen to the news, cook, meet with friends etc., but now I am here in front of the computer typing and pouring out all what I would like to share. I couldn’t stop reading peoples articles too. HP is very rich in information and I don’t have time to read everything.
I am thankful to:
Dohn121 who is a very good writer and all his love stories touched me and made me sit down and think about being in love again. All his writings are a good piece. Thanks for the inspiration.
