      BlogJournal, because I am in the process of educating myself on how to be a successful hubber this hub is very useful for me. In fact, I am printing it out and adding to all of the other articles that I am studying at this time. And I am going to take the time to read all of the other "how-to" hubs you have published.

      Hi Marcoujor

      It gives me great sense of satisfaction that my writing is proving helpful to others. You know that someday I was like a starter and didn't knew anything but then I learned but that took time but I want that everyone should learn quick and clear without the spam out there which is for grabbing clicks.
