    I am Ben Blackwell.  I have always wanted to be a writer, and I have decided to start now.  I enjoy writing non-fiction articles on philosophy, science, art, etc.  I figured I would introduce myself in the forums, as I would in any other forum (though I didn't see an official section for that).  I have read tutorials and other hubs, but if anyone wants to share a quick tip, I'm all ears.

    Hopefully, I will do well here.

      Welcome, Ben! I'm new here, too. I actually "joined" over a year ago, but right after I joined I got busy with work and life, and I've had HubPages sitting on the burner until just several days ago. I decided to finally try to live my dream of being a freelance writer, so here I am. I'm a complete novice myself, so can't give you any tips. If you hear of any that work well, let me know!

    Welcome to hubpages Ben! I feel as if I'm still new here as well. I'm work on that though! I recently wrote a hub that gives a few tips on things you might want to look into while writing on hubpages. I wish you all the best!

    Welcome, Ben. I wish you well here. It's a great place to learn as you write. I have learned so much and grown as an online writer. My tip to you is be aware that traditional writing and online writing are two completely different things. It has taken me a while to understand that truth. You may already know more than I did when I joined last summer. There are things that didn't start to gel for me until recently. Take you time, have fun with it, be flexible and patient.

      Yes, I have done a bit of research on that.  Thanks for the tips.

    Welcome, Ben. HubPages is a good website to start your writing career. I look forward to reading some of you hubs.
    There are a few things you should keep in mind. You need to keep your account up to date and publish regularly. Get involved with the community. And write what you love or people will notice and not care.
    Good luck! And hope to hear from you soon.

    Welcome to Hubpages. Do some research with the Google Keyword tool before you write. In the beginning I wrote about things that later I found no one searched. Be sure to check the competition. If it is tough, find new keywords to use or find another subject.
