Money Glitch says “Thank You” and Morphs
Money Glitch says“Thank You” and Morphs is my 50th hub and like many Hubbers that have reached this milestone; I feel it's necessary to stop, reflect back, and say thank you. Over the last 7 months I’ve learned a lot about HubPages and its magnificent writers many of whom have decided to follow the avatar image of a“little yellow pig.” Hahaha, Go figure! And to my 300+ fans/followers/friends I say THANK YOU!
Regardless, of whether you became a fan in hopes that I would fan you back or you are a follower because you like the way I write and plan to read more; I say thank you. Friends, I think is something that develops over time, and in unique ways; however if we are supporting and interacting with each other on a weekly basis, I believe a level of friendship has been established. Because as we continue to interact and converse while here at HP a camaraderie is being developed.
From the beginning I thought I could write, however, was NOT sure of anyone would read it. Over the years I’ve always been one to share information that I felt was interesting and or could benefit an individual. Always has been one that loved to write poetry,in addition to writing deep thought provoking articles that would help one to perhaps see another person’s point of view on things. So after pondering for days on a way to combine what was to be my writing niche with an avatar name and picture, I came up with Money Glitch.
What or Who is a Money Glitch?
Within the last five years, “money glitch” was a term mostly familiar to video game players in which it is a flaw in computer games that renders millions of dollars when you follow “the rules” and complete certain deeds. In accounting such a glitch could happen if money just suddenly disappeared the way it did in ’07 during the near financial market crash. Being directly affected by this near financial crash and it still has an effect on my present lack of income; I decided to write about the financial market since I’m an accountant and to become the “little yellow pig” avatar to represent how the financial industry decreased many of our retirement accounts.
In the Beginning and What I’ve Learned
I went for a month without any followers, during that time I was writing for numerous other websites while attempting to learn as much about online writing as possible. Never will forget my first fan, Kent Merritt, who felt that my first and only hub; Making Your Way thru This Money Glitch Economy was good enough reason to follow me. At that time my attempt was focused more on getting good backlinks for my blog and other websites because like others, I had heard that HubPages along with Squidoo were good places to build backlinks. Slowly others begin to follow, but it was not until I started conversing within the forums that I met more people that truly provided support and insight on what to do here at HubPages.
In the forums is where I discovered the Hubber’s Hangout and begin writing weekly with the HubMob. It was in this arena that I met Princessa who took the time out of her busy schedule to encourage my writing style, and rmcrayne who was very new herself but she took the time to help me and others to understand some of the technical aspects of HP. Thank you for your continued support Princessa and Rose Mary.
While writing with the HubMobsters, I met two people that have become not only friends but my best supporters and they are: Prettydarkhorse has made a point of commenting on almost every hub that I’ve written; and for that Maita, I thank you my friend for all your Hub Love. MyOwnWorld offers support as well; however every time I read one of your hubs you literally move me from my home into the midst of that country and culture. So MOW, thank you my friend for being a constant source of support and inspiration.
Two others guys that have offered special support to me are: Cagsil who always wants to know “How are you doing?” and has a tendency to make every woman here at HubPages feel special. But that’s o.k. because he seems to have enough love for us all. And then there is my teacher and this may surprise a few of you; however TattoGuy has helped me to understand keywords a little better and has improved my overall hubscores. Thanks a million guys and much Hub Love to you both. In addition,I want to thank my 300th fan/follower, LondonLady, for helping me to reach that milestone on this journey.
Gosh, there are so many of you that inspire me like poetlorraine, I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s, and Shalini Kagal; that makes me laugh like blondepoet, habee, and Denno66; and makes me to feel welcome here like ethel smith, AEvans, and VioletSun. For that I say thank you, Thank You, and THANK YOU, again. Unfortunately,time will not allow me to name all of you within this hub, however, if your name is not presented; it was not because I do not appreciate your support.
I really do appreciate each and every one of you; and thank you is such small words to express just how much it really means to me. So, please forgive me this time if your name was not included; however rest assured that I really, really treasure your support and I will continue to support you back by commenting on your hubs just as much as I can. The Health contest has me somewhat behind, however, now that the contest is over, I will be back to reading and commenting on at least 10 to 15 hubs a day.
Some of the successes that I had so far here on HubPages have been:
1st Featured hub in a category - Teenage Intimate Partner Violence
1st Hub to reach a 100 hubscore - Virtual You: Protection Steps for 2010
1st Hub mentioned in HP’s weekly Newsletter and has highest number of views - Battling Belly Fat: Eat MUFAs
1st Hub to keep a 100 hubscore for days at a time - Butt Naked Ice Swimming
In addition to being nominated to the “Top 200 New Hubbers in 2009." I am very proud of these successes however, I like some others are patiently waiting to see a monetary reward for all the hard work that has been put in these articles. However, my teacher (TattoGuy) assures me that within about another year it will be worthwhile. Of course, this hub will probably be a low score, however, I think that it is more important to say thank you in my own words without being concerned about the keywords and SEO. Take for instance, I should have repeated the title, Money Gitch says “Thank You” and Morphs by now. Hahaha, it’s done!
What’s a Morph?
O.k. in finding a place to wrapped this up, if you don’t know what a morph is well, it is where one changes shape or form. Again, you will find this within the computer games that kids play. If you haven’t noticed by now you are now following a new avatar for Money Glitch. For about two months now I’ve had a desire to change avatars in search of according to the forums; a sexier picture or a face since it’s deemed to attract more traffic. I feel as the economy attempts to bounce back that it is time to let go of the "past lack of funds" and look toward the future of having prosperity again. So over the next few months you might see several avatars until I find the exact one that fits me.
For the next few weeks I’m going to give this lady with the100 dollar bill in her mouth a try. Tome she can be a Money Glitch because you really don't know whether she is asking for more money or whether this vixen is rich and giving it away. Money glitches are mysterious that way because they are not always predictable and are often hidden treasures. If you know exactly what task or feat needs to be performed you can make a lot of money or if you attempting to bet on this economy presently you still run the risk of losing your last dollar.
So my fans/followers/friends I say thank you, thank you,thank you again, as the “little yellow pig” avatar is kicked to the curb and you are introduced to the new Money Glitch avatar for the next phase of our destined journeys. As with all my hubs comments are always welcome.
