Should I Give Into HubPages?

Updated on June 17, 2012
Source

Why Should I Give In?

HubPages, this is the place to be,

Some may ask, why all the rage-

Because of this great community.


I have been here a very short time,

But what have I discovered-

Hubbers inspire me-even to rhyme.


Cuz it's hubbers who inspire me,

Are you then wondering who-

Bill and Shauna, Shining and TT.


If I failed to mention you and you,

I offer this confession.

I'm tired and don't have a clue.


Of what's going on, it's very late.

Why am I up,then you may ask-

Because HubPages, it decides my fate.


You could call me an HP addict,

I am locked up in prison!

Someone now, please solve this conflict.


Wait, pause, Please hold that thought!

Is this really such a bad thing-

Is it not HubPages we sought?


Why is it wrong to be so attached

To an incredible place-

Here is the one and only catch.


You must give it your all in all,

Write and pull your own weight.

Cuz if you don't, success will be small.


Now I am tired, and can't stay awake,

But before I say goodbye,

Must try to end, to culminate.


Why, oh why, why should I give in-

Because of the hubbers,

Guiding you again and again.






Before I Fall Asleep...

Some of you may have no idea who the hubbers are that I mentioned.. So, I thought I would clear things up, sorta clarify the issue.

TT: Here is the profile,

Bill: Here is the profile

Shuana: Here is the profile.

Shining: Here is the profile.

      I'm coming late to this hub but not to being a follower! You are always on top and homage to others seems like something you would do so naturally!

      What a great addition to the hub community you are....with your Uncle Bill and Aunt TT and Fairy Godmother BraveWarrior!! What a truly great family you've got going ;) Oh yes, and this poem was great too.

      Voted up and awesome!

      Oh my goodness! I love your poem! You are so talented. I'm glad you see the benefits of Hubpages. You get out of it what you put into it and so far, you are running ahead of the pack! It took me like six months to get over 100 followers and you have done it in two weeks. I think that is a Hubpage record! I am now a loyal follower of you and hope to see more great works from you!

      Josh, I have wrote on a variety of sites online and no other online community is like Hubpages. You are right. They are helpful and inspirational. To recognize this in a few short weeks shows you how faithful the community is. We all need inspiration. Awesome article!

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Yes, I do. Honestly, I'm not very active. I don't like the idea of the social websites - too many viruses can come thru and I just don't like the idea of being public. But, since I've joined HP and have freelanced for other sites, it's recommended in order to get yourself "out there". I only go into FB when I receive notifications. I don't post my every movement (I'm too busy on HP!), but do use it to share hubs I believe need to be read by those outside our community.

      If you'd like to send me a friend request, I'm Shauna Bowling.

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Oh, no! Those are pretty big wings to fill. I fly alot, but only in my mind. My body stays on earth and my mouth can hold conversations, but you have no idea how many times "me" is nowhere to be found! Although, I'll bet unknown spy has seen me in the clouds more times than not!

      You ready to fly, Josh?

      Great hub. Even better from a local boy. I could never write in the middle of the night. Well maybe if I was gaming with one hand writing with the other.

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Josh, I'm on a different internet access than when I was at home. ATTUverse. My volume settings don't seem to work here. Perhaps when I'm back home and connected to my ISP it will be corrected. I didn't have the problem until I left home. In fact, I didn't have many of the problems I have now, until I left home. But that's another story, of which your new found Uncle Bill is fully aware!

      Thanks for the read!

      Hey, I noticed your comment on Bill's hub concerning the volume...I have noticed his video volume is very low, did you try turning up your actual computer volume all the way, not just the video volume?

    • bravewarrior profile image

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Awwww, wow, I am speechless shining! :) That was a such an awesome comment on my hub; thank you so much my new hub friend :)

      Lol, you are partial aren't you? kidding :)

      I am glad I could make you smile today, although you said it has been rough; stay strong and do not lose heart; you can do it! :)

      I feel like I should be rating your comment like a hub, and sharing it with others, it was beautiful! :)

      Josh - You did so well young man! I told you - you have a flair and ear for poetry. The best ones are touched with emotion, no matter what that may be. This is a very good example of that.

      I am a bit partial because I am in it!!!!! Kidding

      This is great - now just imagine - the possibilities are endless. I too carry admiration for so many on here. Although Billy Buc is under the misguided impression that his doctor knows what is wrong with him.....(He's a great friend and has taken time out to give me great advice), and Toombs won't go to the doctor because she's afraid they might call the cops! (she's been a source of endless inspiration as well).

      Keep it up Josh, my friend.

      I will happily continue to read the wonderful creations that gifted (twisted) mind thinks up.

      Proud to say you are a friend.

      Regards and thanks for the smile. You shined some sunshine on an otherwise slightly tough day.

      I'm feeling pretty good being included with some of my favorite Hubbers. You have come a long way in a very short time. How do I know? Because of the respect you have gathered from some writers who are quality people. Keep on doing what you are doing and you will keep getting that which you deserve.

      Thank you buddy; if TT is your hub mom can I be your hub dad? Wait a minute! That would mean TT and I are married!!!!! What a dilemma that is! She is my hub little sister so that just will not do. LOL

      Great job, Josh, and thank you once again!
