Hubpages Ace Hubbers My Rhyming Tribute

Updated on January 29, 2013

HP Rocks!

When it was suggested I try writing online

I thought would anyone, read words of mine?

Would I have content worthy to scribe

Where to start, to create the right vibe?


The seed was sown sometime before

I’d bared my soul right to the core,

By writing an article to help inspire,

Those with Epilepsy, was my desire.


This I did and will never forget,

Sharing on Facebook I broke a sweat!

The comments received came hard and fast,

Was it a sign, here at last?

Hubpages offers at home income

put a smile on your face with HP.

A friend who had seen it suggested HP

Give it a go and you will see

With quality writing you’re sure to be read

Share your passions and interests but keep the head!


So off I set three months ago

The learning centre I needed to know

The topics were vast and filled me with fear

Good god will I ever, get a handle here?


Embedded links, SEO’s and Hub Tools

Another new language with its own set of rules

So bit by bit I read all the stuff

Set up my account but was it enough?


Generate Money by Publishing

Opening a word doc I compiled a list

Of topics and subjects I could not resist

As I read other hubs I was blown away

By such talented writers with great things to say


The community here reaches far and wide

Where East meets West side by side

With a common goal for quality work

To receive a comment, is a much loved perk


Overwhelmed at first I cannot deny

This newbie decided everything to try

By following, commenting and answering Q’s

With reading and writing, I felt part of the crew


A Community of Writers Across The World

travel is a great topic to write about that is always popular.

Money has trickled I have to say

But from those I’ve read that’s the way

You need to be patient and persevere

Don’t expect big bucks, in the first year


I set myself goals for each week I was here

Which gave me discipline with which to adhere

Slowly but surely some targets were hit

With accolades won it felt great I admit


Sometimes I find my head in a spin

What to write or where to begin

Fellow hubbers give mega tips

So thank you all for curing my blips!


I Don't Just Write Hubs. I Also Take Them For A Spin.!!!

find a niche topic you can be the go to guru in.

On the subject of followers, I appreciate you all

Your comments and support leave me ten feet tall

I salute you, I thank you, straight from the heart

With enthusiasm to write, you have all played a part


Those that I follow, I try hard to read

Learning from your hubs is what I need

I have learnt so much from you all so far

Forging new friendships is in my radar


There are some of you out there, that it would be remiss

Should I not acknowledge or blow a wee kiss

You are all very special to this Irish lass

Excuse my language but you all “kick ass”!


Welcome To My "Kick Ass" Hubbers!

Your talent for writing knows no end

Your great southern charm, your humour and wit

I love your sassy topics, I have to admit

Source

Rajan Jolley

India’s own and many gifts to share

Great attention to detail you include with care

Your home remedy hubs I do love best

Unmissable reads along with the rest

Source

Chef-de-jour

An author who writes with incredible ease

Your words flow free a real summer breeze

From cockney slang to poems on trees

An eclectic repertoire, mucho more please!

Source

Molometer

An inspiration and from my neighbouring Isle

A great all round hubber, you bring passion and style

Informative useful, rich with content

A cheery soul I am happy to frequent



Thank You HubPages.

Hi HP. I'm Ready For My Interview!!!!!

Source

Hub Pages is wonderful, a bubblelicious place

All the staff and community I wish to embrace

For your tireless work, I say you all rock

On the door of HP, daily I knock


For the next three months I wish to expand

With quality writing, oh that would be grand

To stay true to myself and be a team player

So onwards to unveiling the next Suzie Layer!

      Hi Paula,

      It seems so long ago now that hub so thank you for checking it out! My poetry not anywhere near your talented league but I have always done some "ditties" for family on special occasions and that's about it! Dad loves them so I normally do them for his big birthdays and get them framed. Many parts to this Irish lass that's for sure, gotta keep things interesting and unexpected!! LOL

      Cheers my friend for the wonderful support and interest :-)

      Hi Joe,

      Wow, so kind of you to drop in on this one and for following, I am delighted on both fronts! I don't know about literary creations but I enjoy having a rant now and again! LOL Thank you so much for lovely comment, this hub seems along time ago now but HP has opened avenues I never thought possible and friendships I have made i know will be for life. My dad spent a week in Hawaii some years ago after travelling on a round the world trip for a few months and absolutely loved it. I have only ever touched down for refueling for an onward journey to New Zealand but one day . . . . . .I have my tour guide now!! Cheers Joe and many thanks again :-)

      Hi healthylife2, Cheers for taking the time to read! It feels so much longer than 3 months in many ways as I have spent a fair amount of time reading and getting a handle on how things work! I've never written online before so it started as a "give it a go" idea, thinking it could eventually be a career or part time career.Loving it does not really do my feelings justice, it is Awesome here!

I really do hope you check out the hubbers in my list you do not know, They all are wonderful writers and supporters here.What is nice about doing this is everyone has their favourites for different reasons and these are mine during my first 3 months and you ROCK!

      'When it was suggested I try writing online, I thought would anyone, read words of mine?'

      Well, Suzie, I think you now know the answer to your opening lines. Good writing deserves good response, and yours has been consistently good in all respects. I know you mostly from your travel writing so far in which good writing, imagery and all round style of presentation are all evident. I shall have to check out some of your other pages in due course, but now you demonstrate a talent for poetry too! (Not an easy skill as I know too well).

      Thank you so much for including me in your list with a delightful personal little poem - I know only a couple of the other writers, but the quality of their work is high, so it's an honour to be included, and I think I will now have to check out a few of the others.

      Thanks again for this, and good luck for your future with HubPages (though I'm not sure 'luck' will be required in your case).

      Alun

      Suzie, you always bring a smile to my face and tonight is no different. I'm reading this wonderful poem and suddenly there I am along with some of my favorite hubbers. I am humbled to be mentioned by you and thank you for this wonderful tribute.

      You speak the truth about Hubpages. It's a wonderful community and if you stick with it long enough the rewards will come. I've always told my kids that if you do something you love in life the rest will take care of itself. HubPages is no different. If you love doing this, and I know you do, then keep at it and rest will take care of itself. I ALWAYS look forward to your hubs so stick with it and keep them coming.

      Your Italian friend from Massachusetts.

      Ciao,

      Bill

      You are a gem! A true gem! You brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. I'm such a sucker for these hubs...there were so many years, Suzie, when I shut out emotions....now they just flood out of me at times like this.

      Thank you my dear; it was so nice to see some other pictures of you. You are a beautiful Irish lass and a lovely human being.

      your friend,
