    I just wanted to stop by and say hello.  All I can say is this place looks way too addicting.

    For everyone involved I will tell you I spent 6 hours reading over the TOS and other peoples hubs to try and make sure I do not screw up.

    I'm certain I will still make mistakes but hopefully the friendly people will stear me in the right direction if I do get off the straight line but will do my best to continue learning and following the rules.

    Welcome to a great place.  No need to worry about making mistakes because Hubbers are very forgiving and very quick to help you out.

    I will give you a few tips.  I noticed your profile says you are an affiliate marketer.  That is great and I hope you do great.  I too am a marketer so I give you this advice through experience.

    Dont make everything about marketing
    Stay active in the forums
    No spamming
    just follow the rules.

    I do give you kudos for taking the time to read the TOS.  This will get you along way ahead of others that are new here.

    Good luck and I look forward to seeing you around.

    There are also some very good hubs here *about* hubs. They are well worth reading if you're looking to make money here at HP - meaning, other than using HP solely as a vehicle for your affiliate marketing.

    Have you noticed the number of responses you have had to your admission of being "new"? I'm a newbie, too, but I'm finding the atmosphere is friendly and accepting. The "veterans"--the ones who have been around a while, learned a lot and are generous in passing along tips to us greenies---help set the tone for the place.

    You start out with one hub (which you have done) and little by little, you create hubs about topics that you know and like. You drop in on forums or leave comments on other hubs...and it all starts to "grow" on you. (Not exactly like a fungus, but in a good way.)

    You'll do fine; your many new friends are showing you that.
