Sometimes I have to slap myself around a bit...I'm a poet, and I have some work that I am very proud of...but when it comes to sharing my work, online, or simply giving someone a poem of mine to read, I get all weird and uncomfortable about it, like I feel that at the very least they won't know how...

I recently wrote a hub about the potential dangers of the Swine Flu Virus. The hub, IMO is well balanced and lets the reader make their own decision, while providing links to many relevant sites.I am not a doctor or expert on the matter but pulled together the information from around the web, and...
