I joined Hub Pages some time ago, but was never active. I had been working with Squidoo. I was quite surprised to have found out so abruptly that behind the scenes Squidoo was being sold. But that's business.
I have just put up my first Hub, and have been pleasantly surprised at the tools I can use. I actually like the setup here at Hub Pages better!
I wished I had put up a Hub sooner.
My name is Tom Foster, and I am from the Fort Myers area of Florida, on the Gulf Coast. Married to Bonnie, and enjoying ourselves in the Land of Sunshine.
I write about Health, Family and Living among a host of other topics.
I look forward to meeting folks here and please feel free to read my Hubs, and befriend me. It is my pleasure to be among such wonderful people.
Good to see you here, Tom, and good to hear you like the setup. Welcome, and keep those hubs coming.
Another Floridian.....WHOpeeeee! and welcome!!!
Always happy to welcome another Floridian aboard! There are quite a few of us here, actually.
I wish you the best on your new journey.
I've always loved the tools we have available to us here at HP. Glad you're here and I wish you much success.
I'm looking forward to some great things happening here in HubPages, and I welcome you aboard.
Hi Tom! welcome to HubPages. I'll be reading your Health material especially!
Florida also although when I began we were living in the Caribbean, hence my name Cari_Kay
After a brief panic about my pages, I'm feeling pretty content myself. There is a lot to like here. I do miss a few things but we adapt and we move on. I am most relieved that when people click our Squidoo links, they will be redirected here. I've had a lot of people link to my pages on forums and would hate for them to end up at a 'dead end'.
I really do think this will work well. I'm excited
Thanks for the note. Yes, it looks good here and I am excited about the future possibilities. I think when it came to Squidoo, and Hub Pages, it was either or with me. I had started with Squidoo and so I stuck with them.
But I am very delighted to be here and have found people very friendly and receptive.
Love your "trade" analogy. That's exactly how it feels, though I guess we could have opted for free agency as an option. Another Florida writer here... St. Petersburg.
A warm welcome to you, Tom!
Hubpages is a great place to write online. The best.
I look forward to your success down there in Florida- even though I am originally from Boston and have been living in the UK for many, many years!
I'm an ex-Squidoo person too and like you, I've been delighted with Hubpages. I'm a Floridian too (the name gives it away!) - I'm in Fort Lauderdale.
It seems that there are so many people here from Florida - we should have a party
I'm another former Squidooer. Wasn't a part of Hubpages before, but am looking forward to giving it a go. Can use some followers!
BTW, I'm a Floridian too. I live in Tampa now, but am a Miami native.
I like your getting traded idea, but appear to be the first person who is not from Florida here! Welcome from a Nova Scotian Squid!
Hi Tom, another Floridian here and former Squid getting acclimated to Hubbing.
Don't feel like being traded or sold. Hub pages is a community of writers not goods. It happens in business. We have become a big platform with your arrival. You are welcome here. Good luck.
Sanjay I think he's thinking in the professional athlete sense of being traded. Welcome aboard tfoster47.
Hi all! I joined both Squidoo and HubPages a couple of years ago and decided to put all my efforts into Squidoo. I enjoyed my time there and met some great folks. I'm hoping for a similar experience here.
Hi Tom, welcome to Hub Pages. I look forward to reading your hubs. I'm sure you will find this place very welcoming.

If you search Squidoo, you get a block that tells you Squidoo is Now Hub Pages. Talk about misleading.

Welcome Previous Squidoo and New HubPage Writers,I am rather new to HubPages myself, but I wanted to extend a warm greeting to HubPages. My question to all of you is: how do you like it so far? I myself was never a Squidoo writer so I am asking earnestly. Is there something's that we have that...

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too good. I deleted it and will now easily place it elsewhere and earn with it.No...
