New to HubPages; wanted to say hello!

    Hi,

    I'm new to HubPages and I wanted to introduce myself and say hello. I've only been on for a little bit but I really like what I have seen and come across. I am very excited because I've been looking for something like this and I think I have found my canvas! It is such a neat community and the platform is great.

    I have a few hubs and I probably won't be able to make another one until things settle down a bit, but I plan to be an active member of the community.

    I look forward to meeting you, learning, discussing, and reading great things!

    Nalini

    Hi Nalini! I'm fairly new to Hubpages as well. I joined 8 weeks ago in hopes of earning a little bit of money, but I've since realized that I simply love participating in everything Hubpages has to offer. It's easy to get hooked! I just wanted to say welcome, and I'll be sure to check out some of your hubs! smile

      Hi uNicQue! I was thinking of starting a blog but as I tried to get one started, I found it didn't offer the flexibility or versatility I was looking for with respect to writing. I came across HubPages and it offered what I was looking for and also the possibility of earning money--which is a plus. I also like what HubPages has to offer! It's what I wanted out of Facebook but can't get/doesn't work on Facebook so I think I was hooked before I came haha. :-)

      Thank you for the welcome and I'm going to check out some of your hubs too! :-)
