On this, my 100th hub, I would like to reflect on my time at HubPages.

Eight months ago, I was looking for a way to earn some “easy” money online. I have started a free tutoring business and needed some extra cash to keep it running. Somehow I landed on HubPages – and although I haven’t made very much money at this point, I am forever grateful that I stumbled across this site.

My first hub was Doing the Best I Can to Be a Great Teacher- How You Can Do It Too. It received lots of praise and I discovered how kind and wonderful my fellow hubbers are. Through writing my previous 99 hubs, I have discovered that not everyone agrees with what I have to say, but everyone always has a kind word or a bit of advice to give me. I don’t think that I have ever had a person be intentionally mean to me about my work. As I said before, not everyone likes everything I do but even the criticism is done in a positive way in an attempt to help me become a better writer.

Throughout my eight short months here on HubPages I have been lucky enough to read the works of many other wonderful writers. These writers have influenced me to become a better writer. I love the works of Frank Atanacio, fpherj48, lord de cross, epigramman, Sunshine625, AudreyHowitt, imatellmuva, AEvans, American View, ChaplinSpeaks, Cogerson, feenix, Froggy213, homesteadbound, kenneth avery, molometer, RealHousewife, randomcreative, The Frog Prince, ThePracticalMommy, Victoria Lynn, and many more. I honestly can’t pick a favorite among all of these greats. Each of them has touched me in a different way.

I love writing for HubPages. It allows me to share stories about my wonderful job, be creative, and stretch myself as a writer. It has brought me wonderful friends that I would love to meet outside of HubPages. It has done so much more for me than just the few dollars I have earned. It has brought me a unique experience that I could never have found outside these pages.

I am so glad that I stumbled across this site eight months ago!
