Hi all, my name is Melissa and I am just a few days old here. I've been spending a lot of time browsing the site- lots to learn, but great information. My passion has always been in writing, but I'll be honest, I get discouraged quickly. I hear the key is to just write quality stuff and stick with it. I'm hopeful things will work out good for me and HubPages. I look forward to getting to know you all better. Thanks for listening!
Hello, Melissa. Welcome to HubPages. If I can ever be of help, just yell.
Kenneth Avery/ Hamilton, AL.
We've all been there Melissa, as a newbie to HubPages. Welcome Aboard! Many Hubbers have written useful Hubs about what they learned about how to write good hubs and get views, so search for Hubs like those to avoid making mistakes and to save yourself time learning. I wrote one called, "Using a Hub Milestone to Make Hubs More Searchable and Accessible" that explains what I know about making Hubs that rank better in search engines and other tricks for getting more views.
There is also a place in the forums section of HubPages that allows you to submit a Hub for critique by fellow Hubbers. That can be quite helpful. One thing HubPages has plenty of is help for new Hubbers.
Welcome to HubPages, Melissa!
Wish you great times ahead. You would love it here since it is a very supportive community. Everyday you learn something new from some hubs or hubbers.
Welcome to HP, Melissa! Our Community is the best around. If they can't help you stay motivated, nobody can. Don't hesitate to ask questions or request help here in the Forums whenever you need it.
Welcome to HP. I hope that you stay here is a very happy one.
Hello Melissa welcome to hubpages it takes a while but you'll soon get into a writing groove, the community is great and the site wonderful cant think of a better place to spread your wings.
It does take persistence. My passion is in sports medicine which is definitely a niche market. It took a while for me to start seeing traffic but now I'm consistently seeing 50-60 views per week (for me that's booming ). I try not to let low traffic discourage me and write about my passions.
Remember to read the guide for new hubbers. Write about evergreen topics and try not to post too many new hubs too close together.
@JMac778: where can you review your views stats?
Good luck Melissa! Just write a few and see what happens. It only costs you some time to find out if it's your thing.
Welcome Melissa, glad to have you aboard. Write about things that interest you and which you know about. Do not be afraid to ask questions and other Hubber friends will be glad to answer them for you.
We have a Learning Center and FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which will usually give you immediate answers. http://hubpages.com/faq/ At the top you can click on 'Learning Center'. Good Luck
Welcome!! I, too, enjoy writing but get discouraged. I haven't been here long either, but want to succeed. Best of luck to in you in all that you do!!
We both share the same passion, but I will admit I am a novice at writing. Good luck with you writing and look foward to reading your hubs!
Welcome! I am new too. I am planning to write about what I know because I think that will be the best way to do this. Good luck to you too
Hey, welcome to the Hubpages I hope you will get noticed here.
Welcome to Hub Pages Melissa. Just follow your passion and write whatever makes you happy. This is a great community and perfect place to practice and improve your writing.
Hello, I'm new here as well, hope you have as much fun as I am having.
I'm new here as well. But this journey seems full of promise. I have so much to give, sometimes I just know where to begin. Here's to many happy writings and gathered blessings.
Welcome to Hubpages. So very nice to meet you. We have a very supportive community of writers here, so jump on in and start your first hub. I've been here 4 years and am still learning and love it.
I wish you all the best and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. The learning Center is a great resource for writing hubs.

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I had for writing and publishing here.What about you?

I just joined this website today. My question is regarding the quality of the things I have posted, seeing as one thing I wrote seems to have been taken away... I am open to suggestions so I can get better at what I do, especially seeing as writing is something I would like to someday do full time....

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site and only stumbled upon it while I was trawling around, looking for some way of making a few pennies doing something I love - which is writing. The trouble is, I'm a bit of a dummy when it comes to computer stuff, and although I've managed to set myself up and even...

Hello all! Surfing the net I have stumbled upon this interesting place! It looks like a lot of fun and a good opportunity to make money - even if it is just a little extra spending money! I'm a broke college student so every little bit helps. I have heard of people paying all their bills being a...

do a lot of you write all the time? What first inspired you to write? What do you like to write about? I love to write fiction and am getting back into writing poetry. It's fun to read everyone's hubs. Everyone is so diverse. It's great.
