    When I first came here I came because of a hub that I was directed to from google. Its was creative handmade pillows. I became a hubber that afternoon. I would like to hear what your first hub that you ever read was. Try to remember. If you can not go to your activity section and scroll to the bottom. From my account. then activity. Not any other way. This will show you the first you commented on. If you want to know what you viewed first. Youl have to just remember.

        Sorry it took me so long to post. Coming off of a fresh ban on any posting, commenting, or other activity. LOL
        I will never reveal my gender. But If it helps to throw you off I have tried to post as a man before. LOL
        I admire some of the early woman writers who faked mens names so that there work would be published.

      I don't quite remember the title, but the first hub that I read was on some automotive topic.

      I don't remember the title at the moment of the first hub that I read here but it was about making money online and I was directed here through google of course.

    When I first came here, the activity section on profiles didn't exist.  And wouldn't exist for several years.  Even the forums themselves were a little over a year away from existing.

    The first Hub I ever read doesn't exist anymore.

    However, it certainly wasn't bleak here back then.  There was a complete absence of any retail options or advertising and porn was an unrestricted content option.

    I stumbled across the site two years ago looking for advice on how to rip out a carpet. Instead I found an article on how to get rid of dreaded yellow carpet glue. … r-Adhesive

    I was intrigued that a simple query would lead me here. Checking out the site further I decided to join. The 'invitation' said I could 'write what I know'.
    By the way, that Hub, (by maricarbo) is still very much alive (with comments still coming in) although the author's not been seen in years. Was last edited Oct 2 2007.

    The first hub where I left a comment was How To Get PMP Certification … tification
    The info is still valid and useful.

    Im so angry that I don't know the answer to this... the first hub I ever read that made me really go "wow" was ahorsebacks poems. They're not structured or perfect, they're just incredibly passionate and I have to limit myself as to how many I can read... same with Mark Ewbies hubs... just so funny, I must restrain or Ill begin stalking him.

    Thanks Beth! One day I might write another one.

    First hub I can remember reading was one of Shadesbreath's.  Because it wasn't sales or information - it was story fun with illustrations.  I thought "wow" - you can write entertainment too.  It gave me a freedom, a possibility.

    Of course I would have made more money with How and Why.

    The first hub I read no longer exist. I can't remember the name of the hubber nor the title. All I can remember is that the hubber had only one hub which he created about an animal. The Hub was quite long and he said that he wasn't a writer just someone who loved that particular animal.

    I hope it was one by k9keystrokes who left me one of my first comments saying I had a lot to contribute to HP.  It was such an encouragement to me.

    I can't find the documentation but I found HP while looking for a job online.  Two and a half years later, I never found that job but I did find a wonderful group of writers, many of whom I now count as friends.

    My first hub was on childhood abuse and neglect. I decided that I would get that off my chest and do stories afterwards.

    I can't remember the exact first hub I read when I got to Hub Pages the first time but I do recall it was an article by somelikeitscott and it was very funny, so I started browsing somelikeitscott's other articles. I ended up reading into the comments section then finding commentor-hubbers' articles to read. I think my first visit to HP lasted a good ninety minutes and I signed up for an account the same day...
