My 30th Hub.

Writing on the Hubs

Since I retired a year and a half ago I have had the time to do something I never really thought I would be able to do, write. I tried a couple of places on the Internet. I tried a web page, that was more work than it was worth for just writing. I tried a couple of blogs, and that was a waste of time because I didn’t have the experience to get traffic. All I wanted to do is write to share my thoughts and feelings. I was never able to get anyone interested enough to share or comment.

With Hub Pages I feel that I have found a home to write. The hubbers have been kind and have let me know how they feel about my Hubs. I get comments, mostly good, but all are helpful criticism. I even welcome the ones that don’t agree with what I say. I am working on a book and the hubs are helping. I feel I have learned a lot about writing since joining the hubs.

I always had trouble expressing my feelings in writing and with the hubs I have learned how to put my feelings and thoughts on “paper”. I encouraged my sister to join and she wasn’t sure she could do it but with very little help she has published a few hubs now and she has done quite well. I would encourage anyone to give it a shot. You never know if you can do certain things unless you try.

One thing about Hub Pages, there will always be fellow hubbers that are willing to help. The whole idea of the hubs is to share. I have learned a lot from reading other hubs and I have been inspired by other Hubbers like Ghost32, Nellieanna, Jeremey, slusterbubble, Jan Fowler, OpinionDuck, American Romance, libby101a, pcoach and CoauthorU just to mention a few that have been an inspiration to me. There are many more but too many to mention all of them.

I just want to thank all of you. Without your comments and encouragement I may not have made it to this, my 30th Hub.

      Great accomplishment... when I first started I never thought that I would get to 30... that seems so long ago. I do agree with you, hubpages is the best place to write if you are looking for community.

      Good luck on your continued journey!

      Hi BG, Thank you for the comment. When I started I really didn't realize how fun and ADDICTING writing can be. I enjoy it very much. Writing is a release for many things. Again, thanks. Greg

      Hi Sunny, Thank you for the kind comment. Writing on the hubs is a good way to relax and I never thought writing could be more enjoyable. Thank you for the compliment to my dad. I can just hope I can be as strong as he is at his age, especially since he survived prostate cancer. Again, thank you. Greg

      Thanks for the encouraging Hub. I just got started and have been spending a lot more time reading than writing. Hubs like this are a great help.
