          Well everything I write is genius, so you can never go wrong with mine. big_smile After that, however, then it's just a matter of your taste. Poke around through the different "topics" under the Explore tab at the top of the screen. Surely you'll see stuff of interest.

            Will have to read your stuff, being genius and all - surely you don't have any competition in the genius division

              Oh no, I stand alone. Not even on the shoulders of giants. Those other geniuses, Plato, Socrates, that guy who got ripped off by Edison... those guys got nothing on me. Why, if there were a scale upon which genius could be weighed, I'd be the guy the fitness experts were trying to get to sign up for a gym membership.

      Welcome!
      I know what you mean. But just keep writing. If you write and you read other hubs, you'll gradually pick up tips. I'd also highly recommend reading the learning center content, and HubPages announcements. The most  frequent forum posts seem to be about religion and social issues. I learned (and continue to learn) the most from the "need help", "tutorials and community"  and "technology" forums.

    Welcome. You have a great score of 74 even though you only joined 3 days ago. Be careful reading shadesbreath hubs. I may be wrong but I believe this could be a grey area. There is something shades of grey about that name and that wicked looking stick on his avatar - well say no more.

    Best of luck and for stimulating and lighthearted fun visit the religious forums. Sorry I meant the hubbers hangout.

      I see that wicked looking stick, scary - but did you see those enormous brains on his avatar- maybe grey area is good

    Welcome to the site! Please let us all know how we can help answer questions.  If you haven't checked out the Learning Center, it's a great resource.  The FAQs are helpful, too.  They're available in the drop-down menu when you click on your name. 

    You can also search for hubs about writing on the site - many Hubbers have written tips on how to succeed, how to increase Google rankings, increasing traffic and other helpful topics.  I agreem though, it is a bit overwhelming at first!

    Best of luck, and Happy Hubbing!
