    Hi everyone.

    I am absolutely new here and I need to be honest.  I am here to make money.  My mentor who I will not mention is a very popular Hubber and makes very good money.  He told me HubPages is a very important tool on wanting to make an income online.

    He also told me how to act in HubPages.  He warned me about spamming and so forth.  He told me about making friends, getting involved in the forums and just being a real person.  He also told me that I will make very little money from the wallets of Hubbers but then explained to my why HubPages is so important.

    I am an 18 year old trying to make a living online.  My mentor is one of the real people who has taken me by the hand to show me how he makes a living.  Don't worry I haven't quit my day job but one day I know I will.

    So, anyways I hope I can be a contributing member of HubPages and I hope my honesty is appreciated because you can bet your bottom dollar I will never deal in shady practices or try and spam the people of HubPages.

      Welcome. If you are an honest person then why would you need to publish it. For this only makes me caution your motive.

      1. jdmaffiliate profile image56
        jdmaffiliateposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Thats okay.  I'm new to this game and you should be cautious when a new marketer arrives.  I will prove my worth here.  maybe my wording is wrong but I only deal in black and white and no inbetween.

        1. goodfriendiam profile image53
          goodfriendiamposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          why do you feel the need to prove anything?

            jdmaffiliateposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Lol, it seems you are going to be a tough one and thats okay.  Simply because I am a marketer and dont want to get painted with the wrong brush.

            Geez - give him a go. He's just introducing himself to the forum, and doing a good job of it.

            Why do you feel the need to attack him?

            1. goodfriendiam profile image53
              goodfriendiamposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              I'm not attacking, I'm questioning, why he would feel the need to tell us hes honest. That only makes me be guarded to someone who advertises his on honesty.

      It's kind of funny that you Mark would comment already.  My mentor specifically mentioned your name to me.  He told me that you are a person always willing to help those who are sincere but he also told me that you can easily eat a person alive who tries to do things the non HubPages way.  lol,  thanks for the welcome.

    Welcome to HubPages.  I too am quite new and got a great response from the Hubbers.

    Pretty neat that so young you are looking at a career online.  Thats cool but remember to always remember how you get to where you are going.  Take one step at a time and dont get greedy.  I too focus on doing all the right things and for me it has been a success.

    Its great that you have found a mentor you trust.  Not everyone gets that lucky so take the experience and run with it.

    Good luck

        No, but we chant this at our meetings:

        I have been touched by the noodly appendage and blessed with a vision of the best way to say RAmen:

        Clasp your hands together, interlocking your fingers, like the Christians would to pray.

        Instead of holding your hands tightly closed, wiggle your fingers about like noodly appendages. Go ahead, do it.

        Doesn't that look like our carbohydrate-filled lord?

        Say RAmen while you do it. And share the word with all our fellow Pastafarians!


        RAmen.

        Are you trying to split the pastafarians into denominations?  What's next, heterosexual clergy?  Pasta can not be made from Rice.  Noodles yes, pasta no.  This is the eternal truth of pasta.

        1. Eric Graudins profile image60
          Eric Graudinsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          You, Sir, are nothing but a troublemaker.
          YOU are the one trying to create denominations by your deeply divisive comments about rice, which has caused severe emotional distress to RooBee.

          The FSM does not distinguish between pasta and noodles. smile
          In fact, he is very proud of his noodly appendages.

          You obviously know nothing about pastology or FSM and are starchy against us, merely trying to cause dissent. But I forgive you, as per our sacred verses:

          Our spaghetti
          Who art in the colander
          Hallowed be thy sauce
          Thy serving come
          Thy strands be wrung
          On forks as they are on spoons
          Give us this day our daily meatball
          And forgive us our starchiness
          As we forgive those who are starchy against us
          And lead us not into Kraft parmessan
          But deliver us from Gordon Ramsay
          For thine is the garlic
          And the onion and the bay leaves
          For ever and ever.
          RAmen

    I had obviously heard of Spammers, but never Trolls and Flamers.
    Pamda Man wrote a Hub on the subject, and told me to read it.
    It was rather interesting.
    He ironically says that Trolls are the good ones, however no one seems to like them Confused. Good Luck with your Online career.
