Spreading hublove for Sharyn's Slant

Updated on August 21, 2014

She loves relationship writing


A Woman who truly Cares

SharynSlant is a person who writes with true integrity, because she has gone the extra distance to appeal to her readers senses. I felt this way when I read many of her hubs in the past, and surely her most recent hub titled “Love Addiction loving yourself enough to stop the pain”, I give her hub a 9.5 out of 10 rating, for its authentic wholesome value, realism and true originality. Her hub was very intense, and a real life breath taker to read from beginning to end, because it was drawn from her true life experiences of love from youth throughout her adulthood.

Her writing is always consistent, and she knows how to take words and bring a great deal of feelings to the page, which almost makes the reader feel as if they we’re there with her experiencing it all, and especially in her relationship hubs.

Her poetry in that hub was also captivating, and I also recently read a cool hub and poem of hers titled “Dumb Decisions”, this particular poem is filled with passionate emotions, and has a touch of real life experienced decision making, in the midst of its poetically expressed wordings. I simply enjoy her style of writing, and how she takes the reader down her very own memory lane at times.

Below is the awesome relationship hub she wrote about Love Addiction.

LOVE ADDICTION Loving Yourself Enough To Stop The Pain


Spreading the HubLove & Appreciation for community efforts she's made

This goes to show the true strength of the hubpages community, but also tells a great deal about this woman who calls herself on hubpages Sharyn's Slant.

She not only knows how to write extremely detailed, heartwarming, and genuine hubs, she is also a community advocate for our safety and defense, and communicate efforts to make hubpages yet a better place to be.

I thank her for being such a good friend, as well as an awesome person, “Thanks Sharon for being a true woman who cares about the hubpages community”. She truly deserves to be honored in this hub dedication I decided to write for her, adding to my Hublove collection which is now 1 quarter of the way complete.

Sharyn's Slant plays a huge role in this hubpages community

Sharon is her first name actually, and once you get to know her if you haven't already, you feel a sort of comforting feeling, because she has a way of making you feel welcomed with her kind spirited ways of making effective communications. She is a new friend of mine, and I won’t ever forget when we met socially on Facebook, when both of us was in the middle of an online war of sorts, during the time hubpages was experiencing copyright issues, with that infringing website BigEzine (Thanks to Google, the site was taken down). That day she decided to put trust in me, to become an admin of her Facebook group (Elite Writers Network), and that stood out to me to be very honorable of her.

This was about 3 weeks back or so, but I will never forget the friendship trust & bond we both experienced on that very day. We all we’re in need of answers back then, and we all seemed to unite digitally. This was mainly due to many of us hubbers, had been virtually ripped off digitally by some online thieves, and so it truly meant a lot to me, that Sharon actually trusted in me, to help her police that group she had added me too, and it was my pleasure to stand by her, and serve as a added form of a watchful eye or deterrent, and especially if anything else was to occur at that particular time on FB itself.

      I'm just glad I met her on Facebook as well, because communications on there is more like real life, compared to here in the comment areas. Thanks for reading my hub, and for sharing with me too.

      Thank you so much EVERYONE for your heartfelt comments. It is extremely touching to me and actually giving me motivation to write, whooo hooo! Thank you again Mike for your friendship and this opportunity to be in a little "spotlight." I'm not used to it, so I'm blushing a bit :)

      Yes @Movie Master, she is the best, you are also special and judging by your activity recently in visiting and reading so many of my hubs, I might just have to find more on you to write about in the future some time, as I've already done thus far.

      Sharon is real and anyone who is a good person, a real authentic soul will inspire me to think of them, possibly even write a thing or two about them, because we all count in some sort of strange way.

      This is what I truly feel deep down inside. Once again thanks for giving my hubs a chance, and the time of day to be read, oh and also for voting it up.

      @fpherj48, we never met persay, but I can tell by your writing here, and truly insightful comment here, that your also someone worth investing time into.

      Thanks for showing your interest in my hub writing, and for pointing out some unseen factors of my personal efforts as well that you've noticed. Well, I just figured why not try to create a great deal of hubs that can help others get noticed, besides myself just wanting to gain recognition by writing hubs about rigid subjects with keywords & high pricey titles all the time.

      This wasn't an easy task at all, because it actually requires the active knowledge of each person you actually have chosen to write about.

      I guess the more history you have with someone on hubpages who is actually deserving such a hub dedication write up, the more potent such a hub shall become when its all said and done, thus it takes a true investment of time & in more than just reading some words on the screen as well as writing them.

      This takes insightful commenting, the careful acknowledgements of backwards and forwards communications, and social interaction even outside of hubpages, while being at & locating one another on places like FB, G+, Pinterest, and many other social communicators we have at our disposal today.

      There's definitely more ways then one to make efforts for one another here on hubpages, and this hubpages writers network has attained yet a higher level of excellence with such a highly active communicative, and well established community on the web.

      Thnaks @thelyricwriter for your kind words here as well, I'm glad you enjoyed the video too.

      I agree the hubpages community is awesome, and it goes along with my true personality so its no a problem to do such things for folks who deserve to get recognition for their personal, and hubpages community efforts.

      Hi everyone, Thanks for the awesome comments and for sharing with me in Sharon's Hublove dedication.

      @homesteadbound, Yes indeed, she sure deserved such a hub dedication, and I'm happy to have had the pleasure to meet Sharon on here, and on Facebook as well.

      @tammyswallow, I'm glad you liked this hub I wrote for Sharon, yes she is a kind woman indeed.

      @Happyboomernurse, its nice to get such awesome feedback from you, and so many others who can appreciate the works of their peers.

      Sharon is truly a special person & unique writer who writes from the heart, and I had to do this for her, because she trusted in me which made us connect in a differing way for sure digitally.

      @justateacher, I'm glad you feel that way, her hubs are well worth the time invested to read, I hope you can find many of interest to you. Enjoy!

      Mike....This is a simply wonderful, caring gesture...and btw, says a good many positive things about your own character. I admire individuals who are thoughtful and sincere enough to give credit where credit is due.

      Sharyn, whom I sometimes refer to as, "Oh great Slanted one," has been one fellow-hubber I read as often as possible. She knows how I feel about her and that I genuinely appreciate and enjoy her incredible writing talents.

      I have followed Miss Sharyn almost since I first joined this fabulous community.....when she was balancing herself, headed for the top rung of a ladder!

      Seems like that pose was an accurate description of where she has gone, doesn't it??

      Thank you for this tribute to one of our BEST. I echo your sentiments. You're quite a guy yourself, Mike.

      Up and 4 of 5.........Peace!

      I totally agree that Sharyn is a fabulous, generous woman and excellent writer who puts her heart into everything she publishes on HubPages.

      I also love this tribute that you made for her, especially the video. It's apparent that you spent a lot of time putting this together.

      Voted up across the board except for funny.

      Oh My she made it to her hub dedication, awesome stuff!

      Hi @Sharon, you not only deserved this dedication, I think it was long over due, and I just hope others can learn to appreciate your kindness, and get to discover who you truly are behind the computer screen.

      You've been nothing but a cool person to us all, and what a great friend I've just made. I will surely be continuing to follow and read all of your hubs I can get to as well as share with you as much as possible.

      Shall the Hublove spread like a cure here on hubpages, its something I been thinking of doing for folks for quite some time now. Its is my pleasure to have you grace the presence of my hublove collection. Speak to you soon on FB and elsewhere.

      Cheers to Sharon for being a wonderful person, superb hub writer & caring community member!!!

      Wow Mike, what a nice surprise. Thank you so much. You are a great example of sharing the Hub Love. I am impressed with your effort to actually make a video too, that was extremely sweet.

      I appreciate everything that you have said and written here. One thing that truly touches me is your comment "she knows how to take words and bring a great deal of feelings to the page, which almost makes the reader feel as if they we’re there with her experiencing it all." That really means a lot to me. It is very important to me to continually engage the reader.

      I am humbled by and very much appreciate your kind words. Again, thank you so much!

      Hello Kelleyward, I just had to create this hub for Sharon, she goes a bit further then many other folks here, and shows her human quality in so many ways.

      Her writing isn't the only way her love extends to us all, and so this hub fits perfectly, having her to dedicate this hub too was a true pleasure for me.

      Thanks for being the very first to respond, and for sharing with me tonight, as well as so many other occasions.
