    I was accepted as a featured writer at Xomba for the Money & Investing category.  My first piece is currently on the front page about Money and the American Dream.

    I just wanted to thank everyone here at HubPages for their encouragement and inspiration.  If it wasn't for the kindness and camaraderie of those on these forums, I likely would have given up writing on the internet.

    Thanks again to those of you who have helped me out over these last several months.

    Great news - congrats! Seems as if writing on the internet has worked out very well for you. smile You'll have to tell us more about Xomba (pros, cons) when you get a chance. I've heard of it but never really looked into it much.

    Big congrats! Which article is yours?

    I'll be interested as well to hear how you do there. It's a 50/50 AdSense split instead of HP's 60/40. And Xomba does get less traffic than HP. Here are the current Quantcast stats (top bar is HP):

      Mine is the one with the astronaut picture next to it.  Title is Money and the American Dream.

      Thanks to everyone for the kind words.  I will be posting info about Xomba periodically on my blog and will likely write a Hub after another month or two to detail my experience.
