How Writing for Hub Pages Improved my Life and Well-Being

Updated on December 11, 2016

One of my Many Journals

Source

Write on Hubpages

HubPages is a user generated content, revenue-sharing website founded in 2006. The company acquired its main competitor, Squidoo, in 2014 and moved from a single-site to a multi-site business model in 2016. The web based company is based in San Francisco, California

Writing on HubPages is Food for the Soul

I wanted to share with my new writer friends that I'm celebrating my third month on Hub Pages. It's hard to believe that so much has already changed in this little time. I have to thank my twin sister who heard it from a co-worker, then recommended it to me. She and I have been passionate about writing since we were children. Back In the day, we both had journals and filled the pages consistently for years. I put the pen down for many years and lost a part of myself. It's not that I didn't love life, but there was something missing- a big hole I couldn't seem to fill. I didn't realize the source of the void until my sister told me about Hub Pages and I started writing again. Not only can I fulfill my love of writing, it's no longer difficult. We are now in an age of computers which lets me leave that old typewriter behind. No more cramps in my hands from writing in my journal. I can let my feelings and stories flow with ease. How cool that I have all these little capsules that enhance my articles and hubs. I can upload text, photo's, videos, links, books, polls and much more. This is a dream come true for a writer like me from the dark ages.



Examples of how Writing has Improved my Life


  • Hub pages has been food for my soul in so many respects. Here is my first example: This might sound weird, but after only three weeks of writing again, I noticed the warts on my index finger vanished. Yes, that's right- ugly warts I'd had for over fifteen years are gone. I tried every treatment imaginable to get rid of them and nothing worked. I no longer have to put my finger over my index finger to hide the ugliness beneath. I knew right away this was because I was following my passion and gift that God had given me. My creativity opened me up again and things in my body were flowing.


  • Attitude has been another big change for me. I unconsciously shut down a lot after going through a lung cancer journey. I'm grateful to be seven years cancer-free this coming St. Patrick's Day. As a survivor, I was constantly thinking of the what-if's of my cancer coming back. It's easy to do when your going for cat scan's every three to six months. Every trip through the doughnut hole for a cat scan, reminds me of my mortality and how precious life is. If the cancer comes back, what will happen to my twin sister and her kids? Will she be able to financially raise her children on her own? Will she be able to move on if I lose my battle with cancer? As a survivor, you feel like you can never let your guard down because you don't want to set yourself or loved ones up for failure. I definitely pulled away from my loved ones to protect them and myself. On my last visit to my oncologist I was told that I no longer need cat scans every six months and will graduate to once a year. This miracle coupled with writing again, has changed Everything! I am extremely happy and open to life again. It also feels good knowing that Everyone in my life see's the positive changes too.


  • Last but not least is the special connection I've made with new friends and writers here. The first few weeks I felt incredibly insecure about my writing and didn't want to let my guard down. Being a little rusty made me feel I wouldn't add up to all these Hub veteran's. I was even hard on myself when I wrote comments to fellow writers. Eventually my confidence grew -much of the credit goes to the warm welcome I received from all of you. Friends and family have seen the positive change in me since reigniting my passion for writing.

    Thanks MT for sharing this hub with us. It can't be easy going through what you've been through but hats off to you for your courage and bravery and for sharing these very personal thoughts with us.

    So three months - well four months now for you at HP! I'm still comparatively very wet behind the ears in my writing but I can still connect with your sentiments in how HP has given you a renewed vigour and appetite for life. If it wasn't for stumbling upon HP I wouldn't have discovered another life passion, that of writing and especially a love for writing poetry. I'm sure we're not the only ones to acknowledge our gratitude to HP and there will surely be many more to come! I will certainly be forever grateful!

    So thanks MT for sharing a part of your life with us.

    Cheers and have a lovely day!

    I, too, have journaled since my youth. I, too, had put my "pen down" for years -- until just recently, and mostly through hub pages. I have only written a handful of hubs, but I feel as if part of me has been revived.

    This hub is a wonderful tribute of thankfulness! Voted up & beautiful.

    Bravo to the Minne Twin! I know what it is like to not be able to write. And when the moment of creative thought hits, I have to make an extra effort to remember it. (Its not only illegal to text while driving but maybe to write your ideas down on paper while driving too.) But I am so glad you have a good prognosis from your Doctor and you will be all right. Good hubbing and I will be patient to wait for your next one.

    That's one of the fascinating and fantastic things about this place we call HubPages. We're all here mainly to write obviously, but it's really about so much more than that. It's always interesting to hear the individual hubbers story about how it is they arrived here, what this thing we call HubPages means to us on a personal level, and how it allows us to see the world in a much bigger way. I personally find HubPages to be a very engaging place, and I am very much honored to have the pleasure to meet with interesting people, and to be able to engage in a dialogue I have been hard pressed to find elsewhere. Glad to hear you are cancer free by the way...

    Keep on hubbing.

    I find you so engaging as well as encouraging. 7 years and now you have found some freedom. My heart sings at the thought of you never having to go to chemo therapy, at never having to swallow an unknow substance to dull the pain, to never having to force nutrition when you feel queezy. I am dancing with glee at your freedom!

    I am humbled at your true heart as it had your sister in its sights while you faught your rival. Amazing, simply amazing. A warrior spirit has landed within your soul and I bow at its greatness.

    Warmest regards and congrats on both successes MT!

    You have written such an inspirational piece, MT! I am so happy to hear of your health status today-what an ordeal.

    HubPages has really been good for my soul as well, although I haven't had to face anything as scary as lung cancer. I did face-and went through with-total hip replacement surgery last year, and was terribly afraid of the surgery and recovery, but I survived and will have the other one 'fixed' soon.

    It is terribly frightening when dealing with the thought of our own mortality.

    You're a wonderful role model, thanks for this.

    This is an awesome testimony! I’m so glad and happy for you. Yes, HP also uplifted my spirit, cured many of my (psychological) warts and cancers… changed me in many ways. All hubs are worthy to read, all hubbers are worthy to know. I wish I had time to follow and read all. I can relate so much to this hub of yours. I hope your joy will increase daily :)))
