My Comeback Hub

Updated on December 18, 2010

Where Has The Time Gone

I have no clue where the time has gone. Actually I do. I also know it has been a while since my last published hub. I also know the time for writing is back again.

Im really not sure why I havent been writing. I think it has been a series of things all tied up together that has prevented me from doing what I love.

Good or bad doesnt matter to me.  I love writing and will never quit.  I know there are thousands and perhaps millions and millions of better writers then myself but I also know my passion is just as high as many of the greatest writers.

I am almost a 2 year Hubber and that excites me and tells me its time to move forward. Once again the time to write has come forward.

At Time Life Can Suck

As many of my hubbing friends know the last couple years of my life have been absolutely horrible.

So much has happened in my life. I watched my father die and then be brought back to life to have to finally face reality and bury my father a few months later.

Our dog died, many relatives lost their lives and so much more.

I dont want to dwell too much because that part of my life is in the past and now it is time to move on, move forward and be aggressive in doing so.

Our Condo

Her New Truck

Things Do Get Better

Of course I will always miss my father as he was my best friend. However I do know now that I needed to stop dwelling and move forward. Dad wouldnt be too happy with me if he saw how I was acting so Dad I love you, always have and always will.

May 6, 2010 was the day I promised myself I would quit smoking.  That day cam and now over six months later I am still a non smoker and feel great about it.  When I quit I was a 2 pack a day smoker who had been smoking for almost 30 years.  Yes I miss it everyday but never will I miss it enough to ever start again.

My wife and I sold our home and moved into a new condo.  For some this may not seem like much but for us we have never been happier.  We love condo living and not having all the responsibilities of owning a home is allowing us more time for each other.

I was able to buy my wife a brand new truck and I am able to entirely pay for it using internet earnings.  That is a great feeling.  A brand new truck and I am not required to take a single penny out of our household income.

Many other great things have started to happen and it seems like things are finally turning around for us.  There are many other things I could talk about but I am quite aware that the world doesnt want to be bored to death by every single detail of my life.

Where To Now

The way I see it is it is time to get back to basics. Its time to start over and see where that gets me.

I am a prime example of recurring income. The entire time I was away from working I still make more than enough online to pay for a brand new truck.

I have taken a long hard look and now I will be doing a whole lot of revamping in my internet business. I have only a few niches I want to focus on. I want to have fun with writing my Hubs again and I will.

I will be entirely revamping my profile page here on this great site. I am so excited I finally wrote this hub and I think its time to stop boring everyone and get back to having fun.

      Honest anj there are no real secret and anyone here can feel absolutely free to ask. For the most part I am not even trying to sell anyone here anything unless they see something interesting in my hubs.

      Like I said there are no real secrets, nothing huge to buy and many times nothing to buy. A lot is just good old fashioned hard work.

      My biggest secret is writing a lot, whether it be hubs or articles, I write, write and write.

      It is so wonderful to hear from you again, Dale, I for one will never be bored to hear from you or others about their happenings. Big or small. That is what is so nice about HP that we also can write about our personal things and people respond to it kindly.

      Have a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year. I am glad you decided to come back having always written interesting and informative hubs.

      Hi Dale! Very sorry for your loss. Its sheer coincidence that I just finished reading AEvan's hub where she mentions the loss of her mother and her beloved dog. Recovering from such a loss is really an uphill task. Most of us know that. So...welcome back.

      Regarding your internet income, I'm more than tempted to ask you about your online business. Would you care to share some tips or is there any specific hub that you've written on this one. In that case please share the link here so that we can learn some tips from you. Thanks for sharing.

      Those words are so kind Connie. As much as I want to say I will just narrow it down to Thank You

      Wow, Dale. Congratulations on the success of your internet earnings. I, too, have had a bad run this past 1 1/2 years, which took away my desire to write for a while, even though, like you, writing is my life. I hate the term "comeback" in relation to any talented people. Some people are stars, who, no matter how long they are away, are still stars. I think you are one of those, so no comeback for you, just a continuation after a brief respite.

      Dale - After you turn a corner, sometimes you can look back and see that it was really just a curve in the road.

      It feels so good to be back. The positive comments from everyone is a great way for me tyo get started again. At the moment I am just putting my niches into place and then once again the hubs will get written.

      Yep -- get the nose to the grindstone and crank out more of your great articles; it's time. Those times of 'dwelling' are sometimes called pregnant pauses in our lives, and they are as necessary as any other time to get us over life's changes and traumas. We should respect them, but also know when time is up. Congratulations. Lynda

      Congratulations on your return and also your giving up smoking, Dale. I'm so sorry for your losses, but as you realize, life is a series of "moving on." Delighted you are back and happy holidays to you and your wife. :)

      Welcome back, Dale! WTG on the earnings front - new truck and all that - and am so sorry to learn a little bit of your troubles. Onwards and upwards, that is the only way to go.

      Thanks everyone. I know this may sound very stupid but pushing that publish button finally after so many months developed a feeling I cant even explain.

      Very interesting. I love that you can move on with your life. I heard someone once say that if we dwell on horrible things that happened in our past, those horrible things will define our life and we will never be able to truly live again. I applaud your wonderful attitude.
