u r a kind soul..i appreciate that...i have written a blog but it tells me it lacks content...this is my first one..it seems i need a hand being walked through..i am truly humbled here...yet i will persist..what is my alternative?...tin pan alley is dark...as that valley i guess...i digress...perhaps i need 2 renew my poetic license? just kidding..help would b kindful and appreciated...
did i lose u? says u r elusive on your website...thanks 4 attempting...i am sure my errors are increasing exponentialy...i will laugh or cry or merely sigh and wonder why my friend jack the dog gazes at me expectantly....actually he is sleeping..lulled by the tapping of these keys..
My elusiveness is due to my going from publishing under my own name to ghostwriting.
If you have enough content, you should be able to get rid of the low content warning on your hub.
You're new, John, so try to write a great hub, make it an attractive layout and a pic or two (or video) and you just may be chosen as a potential HubNugget.
back again...word count at least 75..
i am amazed at my own idiocy...
struggle...write...can't seem 2 upload...words r not lacking..they flow without surcease...i snatch them from within the air with the deftness of a wizard's care..yet i am technically inadequate it would seem...
again...i thank u 4 your kindnesses...i hope i waste not your time...we r here to learn and collect experience...i weary...i lag..i hope..i try...i sigh...
What is your word count? Maybe you need to add some more text.
Hi JG, welcome to the world of HubPages. Try to aim your word count for a minimum of 300 and end it with inviting people to join your fanclub, hubpages, make comments, etc. Hope that helps.
Dame's right, John. You should have at least 300 words to get rid of the low content warning.
You can do it! Maybe take a little break and come back to it?
it's raining here...dark and dreary...poe wrote the raven near where i write this...as a child i constantly snuck into the confines of the tower where he penned this poem...a brilliant mind much maligned...found dead on a street...a mystery unsolved...who really cares...coffee and cigarettes...bartleby the scrivener perishing in the tombs...it's sad that he gave up...he was so humble and cool...
I love Poe!
Be careful not to become as morose as he was! He had a very unhappy life and a bad end.
i thank u 4 the encouragements...perhaps a break would b 4 the best...reassess and repossess my faculties...it certainly is beautiful atop this mountain....money spent on half finished self built house with borrowed tools...will i make it?
quien sabe...i ride the winds of change...frequently stumbling...taxes...wood stove...long hard winter...stilll here...i can only try...believe u me i am a stubborn beast...if i ask 4 assistance i am in dire need..
u r good people...i am relieved...
We're always glad to help!
A little break will give you a clear head and let you start again, renewed. Enjoy.
i also love poe..
he suffered as do we all..
he documented this brilliantly....
leaving us a legacy...
an artistic display of human potential...
u recognize this 4 what it is..
sadly many great writers were unhappy and ended miserably...
yet with their passing came a blossoming...
a release from their bondage of said suffering..
and a gift for us...
which serve us well in their stead...
I think Poe's depth of writing came from his misery and I think he relished his gloom.
I've always remembered something that I read about him once. He once made a statement that he wished that someone would die and then come back and tell him what it was like.
Poe embraced his dark, shadow self and used it in his writing.
As much as I would love to replicate the essence of his writing style, I have decided that I don't want to have to live a depressed life to achieve it. It may mean that my goals of excellent horror writing may have to change.
u know how it is...i can't let it go...i need to write 2 survive...i feel penned in by the confines..i don't suffer from cramp...i just can't find the medium....i've traded my pen 4 all sorts of proxies i.e., a hammer, a saw, exercise, heroin, steering wheels, relationships etc. etc.
i've got to laugh at myself here..success is evasive...once again i lift the pen and hope it is mightier than the all conquering sword...
somehow...the writer will save the world....my estimation isn't haughty it' s humble...i can sense this as readily as anyone who as ever attempted to convey a thought...an idea
rhetoric and a sense of what's right.
controversy, conflict, duality....
apocalypse-a lifting of the veil..
cooperation-what a good thing
i her u shirley 4 shure
i think happiness is acceptance
that is what makes it difficult to acquire
Sounds like writing is your reason for being, John. Life is getting in the way of it for you? Rather than lamenting the fact, why not use it. Write about it, use it metaphorically.
There's no doubt that the written word influences nations and societies.
That is really good thinking, Shirley! Taking a writer difficulty and turning it into something constructive and writing about the problem! I bet you don't suffer from writer's block very often!
And I completely understand you, John! I feel the same way - life does get in the way of writing! I would rather write than, say for example, walk the dogs, clean my house, wash the dishes, or do laundry! I would rather write than do mostly anything, except maybe building websites or playing in my garden. Now, when that writing obsession gets in the way of perhaps, taking a bath, then we might have a problem! LOL!
I hope you guys will look at my hubs and leave comments! One of the things I am thinking is deficient here on HubPages is the scant opportunities for interactions between Hubbers! (HEY! That's another good idea for a hub article!)
u r very cool
i thought u were gone
i hope u will b rewarded 4 your kindnesses
your friends and family must benefit greatly from your acquaintance
i look forward to reading some of your content
what i have witnessed in this forum display a wisdom of caring
if u r a mother-your children must surely b fortunate to have incarnated within your kindly realm
Thank-you, John. And yes, I am a mom and a grandmom.
You keep alluding to the fact that I am gone. Never gone, sometimes just visiting elsewhere.
Speaking of which, I have a freelance deadline that I have to get back to. Time pays no attention to my preferences.
I'll be back later today, though.
Happy hubbing, John!
thanks 4 hanging with me through this rant
could i use this for content?
the rain it falls softly upon the forest where i dwell
literally and figuratively
i need to cleanse my soul and attain a clean slate
the spirit of the ghost writer awakens from an unyielding slumber
i hope u r smiling and attain some great belly laughs from this discourse
i am humble here now
do u think if i just keep adding words to my content it will b accepted?
just trying to post my first blog and feeling frustrated i guess
i don't want to fail here...
thanks shirley...i will add more words and see if this will assist me...also thanks for checking in later...if i get accepted...i have u to thank..u r cool and i appreciate it...hopefully i have given u something in return
ha -it worked!!!!!!!!!!
added words then it published
i guess i need to figure out how to utilize the site for profit now...if i can feed myself somehow this way...or through other channels also...thanks for advice yours was concise and accurate..
John - It looks like you have published. Congrats and good luck. If you have questions, the forums are an excellent place to find help.
Thanks, Magic! It's one way to write about what you know and I think writing about problems can sometimes help us to figure out the solution or at least options.
You're right, I don't get writer's block very often but I do have times when my brain just plain gets tired.
Just became your fan, by the way.

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning center to find out what they should be doing, and then asking for help to...

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

I feel dejected. How can I motivate myself to write again at Hubpages?I have 23 hubs and my last hub was over 3 weeks ago. I have over 50 drafts waiting in my account. I just can't get myself to complete even one of them... Traffic and earnings have been steadily falling... Please help me!...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.
