A Newbies Forum, Welcome

    lyricsingrayposted 8 years ago

    I'm not sure when you stop becoming a newbie, but I know being one is tough.

    Meeting people is even tougher.

    This forum is for the Newbie, I myself at 4 months still feel like one but also feel a transition to a more comfortable place with some confidence.

    So here, we can announce a newbie, welcome a newbie, a newbie can introduce themselves or even comment on a new Hub of yours, or maybe someone else will.

    Networking is key and meeting other Hubbers is your support line.

    So Welcome!  Let's meet some Hubbers!

    Thanks, Kimberly  smile

      I guess I'm still a newbie.   Nice to be welcomed "officially" ha.   Good to meet you Kimberly and others.
      BTW,  I also like your hubber name lyricsingray.

        Okay, I'm not going to ask about the smell, cosette. But from you, it's got to be something out there wild and wonderful.

        Cosette I cannot believe you've only been around Hubpages for such a short while and you reached your 100 author score. That is really amazing.

        Well. I'm new and still feeling very wet behind the ears but I'm learning - the hard way as we all have to when you are new. Having a forum like this will help.

        Thanks Kimberley smile

      It is a great place and I enjoy being here, welcome and thanks for starting the thread, a nice idea. treading the forums at first can be .... interesting? especially the halls of politics and religion.

      enjoy, be yourself. 

      I found a nice hub the other day that is helpful for forums. http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubbing-101-How … line-Forum

      1. Jeffrey Neal profile image78
        Jeffrey Nealposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, that is a good one.  I like Yoshi's Hubbing 101 series, and fanned him for it.  I cannot say I'll stay away from the politics forums, but religion?  Well, let's just say I don't need anyone to affirm or denounce what I believe and it's not really up for discussion. smile  I'm really just focusing on trying to make hubs...that's time-consuming enough.

        Everyone has been really nice and helpful also.  Thanks, and thanks to Kimberly for starting this thread.

    I think that I'll always classify myself as a newbie/rookie here.  That way when I screw up I can scream out: "I'm new!  I'm new!  I didn't know!"

    Shame on the newbie that actually takes my advice about hubbing lol

      SHOCK!!!
      dohn, you are my hubbing bible! You rock!
      Couldn't go wrong following you!

      Welcome to our very mixed (up) neighborhood, anyone who feels new. Which is me.
      I've fanned so many of you that I'm NEVER going to get to write hubs again, I have so much reading to do. (And it's good!)

    I am relatively new to HubPages. I've just recently realized that there is a lot more to HP than posting my writing and getting feedback. I have not yet decided if I want to get into the SEO part of it, or just continue writing.

    I agree that the new peeps should help each other out - as Scott and Dohn and Jeffrey Neal have done for me. (And many many non-newbies, too.)

    Crazdwriter - your profile looks great. Good job updating it!

        Truthfully yes I want ppl to read mine but I want other hubbers to get read too that is why I keep telling ppl that if they see something i write on a topic that is similar to theirs then email the linka dn which hub and I'll link 'em smile I like to help
