Creating A Hubpage

Updated on February 9, 2012

My Very First Hub

Yesterday I was surfing the Internet, something I rarely do. I came across (2) pages, and by chance, both were HubPages. I realized this after the visit to the second page, and thought, "What a coincidence!". I then searched for HubPages and, well here I am.

I must say that I spent the better part of the day, setting up, reading tutorials, configuring, reading tutorials, blah, blah blah. I had a number of "aha" moments, with the most recent one just before this hub. I am delighted to be here...finally !

I considered that perhaps my first entry should regard my experience with creating a HubPage. I realize that this may not bring excitement to anyone but myself, and boy....am I excited! I am thrilled I tell ya'....whoohoooooo! This is only the beginning of what I hope to be a great venue for writing...excuse me, hubbing. I'm a Hubber!! I've never been called that before, but it's okay, I like it!

I've always enjoyed writing, but never explored an avenue to write, and share with an audience. HubPages offers a great opportunity for writing on a variety of subjects and topics. The possibilities are endless. Well...with the exception of adult content, and that IS an acceptable limitation.

Flash forward! It's now six weeks later and I've published (5) hubs! I'm ecstatic that I found HubPages, or I should say that HubPages found me! HubPages is a marvelous community to learn, grow, and meet interesting people! Before HubPages, I only had friends in the U.S., and most resided in the City and State that I call home. Now, I have friends from Canada to Germany...HOW GREAT IS THAT !

At HubPages you will find a wealth of information, talented writers, and forums with many interesting topics. Being a member of HubPages will prove to be a valuable and rewarding experience.

      Well you are definately right about not trying pulling it all together too soon! I have still been doing a ton of reading and just finally going to attempt my profile so I can post my first hub. Thanks for the encouragement, and I'm looking forward to enjoying more of your articles as well as sharing mine. Thanks for the warm welcome.

      jdome...You WILL get this all figured out but don't rely on soon. The one thing I've learned is patience, more patience, and ask questions. While here you'll become friends with some very cool people who will guide and support you along the way...and of course there's the Learning Center, and The Hubs. All tools to learn and grow from.

      I've been here for (6) weeks and just yesterday I finally figured out how to do something that I tried to do (with instructions) 1,891 times!!

      The point is as long as your here, don't try to figure it out too soon.

      AND...WELCOME TO HUBPAGES!!!!

      Your hub really caught my attention. The reading was entertaining and smooth. I am new to hubbing. I haven't even wrote my first hub yet. I am reading from A to Z to figure out how this is all done. But I am really excited to get started. Just like yourself, I also found the hubpages by accident. Your article was helpful though, and I hope I get this all figured out soon.
