Preparing computer-related article to present as a hub?

    lonwrightposted 5 years ago

    I'm more than halfway through a "story" that I would like to present effectively here in HubPages.  I'm not sure whether to present it as it is, to break it up, or even to present it as a blog.

    The story is about my career in the computer world, starting with my first exposures to computers and programmable calculators and proceeding through a contorted trail of jobs, assignments and projects.  Since I started with no formal computer education, I learned as I went along.  I've interspersed the story with real projects that I've taken on.  These start my experiences in BASIC and assembly language and go through object-oriented programming on the Mac in Objective-C.  These examples are not intended to be computer programming instruction, but instead to give the flavor of programming concepts and languages.

    It seems to flow best as I've written it, with the personal history interspersed with the programming examples.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on where this sort of thing would fit into the HubPages world, and what I might do to present it best?  Is there a way to upload things provisionally for others to make comments before going final?

    Thanks for any help!

      Not sure just where it would go under the sub-categories listed under Technology, but I feel it would go under Technology.

      audio and video
      communications
      computers and software
      consumer electronics and personal gadgets
      internet and the web
      materials and industrial technology
      renewable and alternative energy

    From what you've written here, it sounds to me as if it might be better as the first post in a blog.

    Yes, I think I'll start a blog.  It will have to be separated into smaller posts, rather than one huge one.
