    Hi!

    There's lots of great ways you can use hubpages - the key to getting started would be to figure out a topic you'd like to write on and just get started.

    That may be hard to figure out for you at first, but perhaps using a short story or two from your arsenal and getting it published is the way to go.

    Lot's of people simply enjoy the community and writing aspect of Hubpages, while others depend on it for a regular income!

    Welcome and don't worry, there's lots of good resources to start you hubbin smile
