    I have no clue how to use this site.  None.  Been on the Web for years (longer than I care to admit) but how exactly, does one write for this site?  I have clicked on every thing here (Hubbers, Answers, Topics, Forums, etc.) and it's all a total mystery.  Looks totally confusing and ponderous.  What gives, please?

      One thing you will learn QUICKLY is how horribly astray these forum threads can get.. horribly astray.  You will figure out who's at fault quickly.. usually EagleKiwi.. she's the best, but omg, and Ernestshub.. he takes on a life of his own!  Follow them, and you'll get in with the best of the best.. (imho)

    Hi Catamaran.

    Welcome to Hub Pages.

    If you log in and have a look at the top of the screen, you'll see "Start New Hub".
    This is where you create the content that is published for people to read.
    Cheers, Eric G.

    You'll be right at home in now time!  Then go into 'hubbers' and follow some around, follow who's fanned them and soon you'll have lots of your own!

    Welcome and have fun!

    if this doesn't help you, look for Misha on the forums. Just dont tell him I sent ya then he will automatically think you are tech. ignorant.!!  Had the same problem for months and finally figured it out on my own, learn something new everyday.

    in the last 11 months that I have been here you were my second fan, and at that time your English was already pretty good. I have noticed your ability to express yourself in English grow enormously since that time Misha. Now that we understand you better, most people here seem to like you more. You did good work to learn the nuances of another language so quickly!
    .. and you are always helpful, even if you are annoyed with some newbies for not reading the faq before they ask a question, you still help them by pointing them in the right direction.

        Well I find it hard to imagine anything making you blush Misha, but I am confident that many others feel the same way.
        Personally I enjoy your no-bull approach to life!

    Sign in, and along the bottom of the screen you will see GUIDE. That is what helped me get started. I actually printed it out and referred to it for everything. It's a learning curve we all have to go through, but so worth it. What a wonderful community you are entering. Best wishes.
