After publishing a 5th hub yesterday, I had some anticipation waiting to see if my hub would be featured or unpublished. I checked that hub's status several times last night. with a feeling of excitement in the air. (maybe you felt it too)
Anyway, I "reached my goal" to get out of HubPages Boot Camp, with 5 featured hubs this morning! So! It is a small milestone, but I feel happy. - Cheers!
I did the same earlier this week with the second account I opened here as Dreamworker. I was not even aware that this was an issue because I have been on HP so long that I never paid attention! Starting a new account is a very strange thing for me as I cannot seem to reach others on my feed...this limits my exposure on that account. Also, commenting on forums can be tricky because you can only comment on a forum as one person, which means you have to pick and choose and then try to remember which forums you used. Gonna take time!
Yes, but the problem is that if you do that, nobody ever gets to know who you are in the other persona. What I decided to do was use one name in the regular forums and another in the topics forums, that way I can't get mixed up. I didn't even know there was another type of forum until yesterday!
Elsie, I would imagine it is harder to care for two different accounts, especially with 162 hubs in this account of yours. Anyway, I reached my goal a month earlier then I had planned. And, will have to set another HubPages goal to achieve. - Thank you!
No, it's a huge milestone, colorfulone. Congratulations to you! HP didn't have boot camp when I started, luckily I escaped. But the funny thing is that with each Penguin, Panda, Google update, or HP change, I occasionally feel like I'm in bootcamp, lol . Enjoy your time at HP, write a bunch of hubs and have fun with it. Don't let the bumps take away your drive as a writer.
Hi Colorfulone - I just joined last night and am working on my first hub. When I logged on just now to do a little work before a dr appt, this post was the first thing I saw. Congratulations to you! I hope to be on my way soon!
Congrats Colorfulone and good luck to everyone working their way out of bootcamp!
As a relatively new squid, I still remember how exciting it was to have 1, 3, 5, 10, etc. articles published.
I didn't get to make it out of that version of bootcamp, RocketSquids. I was only about 3 or 4 lenses away from the required 25 when Squidoo went bust. Pooh! (I must be starting to feel like I'm a Hubber -- in this paragraph I originally wrote "hubs" then realized I had to edit it to "lenses."
I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements I am still here. Hopefully, I'll fall in love with you like before.I have been...
Hello everyone! I have now managed to write 5 articles. From what I have found out, I should therefore be out of boot camp. However, I do not see anything that would confirm it for me, no message, nothing on the profile that would suggest that I have completed it. Is there some additional step I...
The email today morning by HubPages, which made me smile!Thank you HubPages, Thank you Dear Friends and Fellow Writers, for all your support and encouragement over the years. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.My Best Wishes to everyone. Happy Writing.
Hello, everybody. I have already met with some familiar faces (well, avatars) from other publishing platforms and some new ones as well. As I understand, every new writer is on sort of probation until five published hubs. It looks, I made it:)Thank you for your support. I am still a bit confused...
