The Sailor celebrates 1 year on Hubpages
Wow! It's been a year and this writer, thesailor, is celebrating his 1st year anniversary on Hubpages. Where's the toast and champagne?!!!
I was mesmerized when I noticed on my profile page an accolade that I'm on my 12th month this 18th day of March, 2011. It's been a year and hubbing can never be interesting such as this!
To make you aware of my presence, let me share with you my worthy hubs that became the source of inspiration to some of my friend-sailors.
A year of hubbing
Concentrating on recounting my experiences as a sailor brought strings of challenges on how to remember the facts vividly with a goal to reach the readers by understanding the life of a globetrotting mariners.
Many will say that being a seaman is already an edge to all other professions because I can travel the world without the worry of spending money. Yes, it's free to be in the places where even rich people have not been into. From port to port, a sailor, like me has been exposed to different experiences that others would not want to be involved with.
Being a sailor is a very challenging job. Whether you're on deck, engine or catering assignment, the rigors of the sea is out there.
There are lots of stories to tell of my being a seaman, but some are still kept locked in my mind, waiting to be opened again as I continue writing on HubPages.
My original plan was to start my recounting of my seaman's tales since the start of my seafaring career. There are places to be remembered and others put to oblivion; the latter must require thorough thinking before I include it here on my HP account.
With all other things in mind, I'll continue revealing something derived from my exposure to the seafaring world. It's worthy of recounting it, so that, others may learn a thing or two about my world.
