Joining the Party

Updated on June 24, 2011

Hi Everyone

For a brief moment in cyberspace I’ll be the newest member of Hubpages.  I know this moment won’t last long because I’m joining a vibrant growing community of people of like minded people who feel they have something interesting to contribute and hope that their contributions on whatever subject will earn them some additional money.

Do I know what I’m going to write about?  Well the simple answer is I don’t know yet I’m going to follow my nose and see where it leads.

I stumbled across Hubpages by accident looking for information about blueberries and something somewhere clicked and I bookmarked the site.  At first I treated Hubpages as an interesting magazine which I could pick up and put down as I had time but it became strangely addictive and I started to realise that I had developed a relationship with the site or to put it more accurately I had developed lots of relationships with the different hubbers as I read what they had to say.  The relationships were of course one-sided to say the least and it felt as if I was at a party at a friend’s house except that I was outside looking in through the window at everyone else enjoying themselves and having deep and meaningful conversations.

So I’ve now entered the front door and have joined the party and can’t wait to get to know more of you better.

    Welcome to hubpages, I'm sure you'll have a good time here, there's the forums, writing what you're interested in and getting to know others here too, so pull up a chair and start to write and lets see what interesting stuff you can churn out, because I can tell from this very introductory hubpage, you are just brimming with stuff to talk about!

    Once again welcome to hubpages and if you need help just ask or search the forums for help too!
