You find a way, through your writing, to share of yourself with others. Every writer has a unique voice, so through the magic of your well-chosen words, speak to the world about who you are and what you're interested in. Along the way, voraciously read other Hubbers' writings; by so doing, you learn about who they are and what they're interested in. Open your horizons and opportunities by sincerely "listening" to their unique voices.
Personally, I find an image that works for me. As a kid growing up in Hawai'i in the fifties and sixties, a great way to get to know people was through music. At luaus, on the beach, or on one's front porch, it was a wonderful community-building activity to pull out one's ukulele, guitar, washboard, or homemade bass (a length of strong cord attached to the bottom of an upturned washtub with a stick to leverage the different deep notes) and connect with others via Polynesian music.
Likewise, find an image of connecting with others that works for you, and go full throttle in developing new relationships with fellow Hubbers. Besides your own writing, comment liberally about other writer's articles and poetry; continue to ask questions; provide answers for others; and utilize the various channels of social media. In short, you've just arrived at a great party. Now make a full time effort of meeting other people. Be a social butterfly with the genuine intent of connecting with others...anything short of that, and you're just a pesky gnat. The people who participate in HubPages are emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually gifted, and they'll sniff out a phony in a heartbeat.
If you remember nothing else...and I wouldn't blame you because I can be so long-winded in my comments and responses...remember this: Give generously of yourself to the world, and you will reap an abundant harvest in return--maybe not so much in terms of monetary gain but certainly in the riches of social and literary connection.
Best wishes for a very happy journey here on HubPages!
