I not only notice it, but the positive atmosphere is what keeps me here. I love HubPages. I enjoy many forms of writing and this is a great place for inspiration. I write poetry, fiction, reviews, and recipe hubs. As hopeful as I was to join and reap rewards years later, it was nothing like I had in mind, but money doesn't by friends or exposure or a platform to practice on. So I guess I'll stay as long as they let me.
