My sisters and my mom know I am a Hubber and they occasionally read my stories when I pin them on Pinterest. Otherwise no one else in my family reads my work. I don't know why I haven't really told extended family. I guess I just want to make it myself and gain a new family in Hubworld.
I am trying to keep my online life separate from my personal life to avoid drama and crazy people, like stalkers. It's not that important, but defining a line between my two worlds helps me to relieve stress.
Currently my family and friends do not know that I am a hubber. I feel this way I am able to write one hundred percent what I think and feel along with what I have been through... no one feels exposed and I don't have to censor anything.
Everyone I know knows I am a Hubber. I mean really why keep this a secret? Is it high school all over again? Being a writer and writing on Hubpages shows character and sometimes shows people your willing to try something new to make money, or something new to do as a hobby. Regardless of why you write hiding the fact your a hubber is completely ridiculous!
If you are unfortunate enough to actually be criticized for writing online then I would say take a lyric out of one of my favorite songs In Da Club - 50 Cent:
"I'mma tell you what Banks told me: "cuz go ahead, switch the style up If the (people) hate then let them hate and watch the money pile up"
Most don't know. It is just a part of myself that I don't tend to share. I love my family very much but none of them has ever really been interested in my writing or other hobbies for that matter. So this I do for me.
I am like duffsmom, I don't really share unless they happen to see my posts on FB, Pin Interest, etc. I don't know how much they would really be interested and don't know if I want them to be yet. I am still wet behind the ears.
Sure, why keep it a secret? I want everyone to know, so they click and read. I will admit that at first I was reluctant to tell the people I know, as I was unsure of the site, how successful I would be, etc. It is always harder to put yourself out there in front of people you know, especially when it comes to writing. After about a week of posting and getting really nice, positive feedback from other hubbers, I took the plunge and posted all my hubs to facebook. After about a week, I told my parents over dinner one night, so proud that I had earned a whole 75 cents!
I also found two of my co-workers on here. I had no idea they were writing on this site, so I guess some people do keep it to themselves. It all depends on your comfort level I guess.
My best friend tends to steal every idea I come up with so I refuse to mention it to him as well as my other male friends, not ashamed it's just, if I feel a need to write about them I'd hate for them to read it. My best female friend knows and encourages me daily though which is wonderful.
Yes, my friends and family do know. I enjoy having their support and ask them sometimes for feedback about my writing. Having another set of eyes to look over my work can help! Good question Glimmer Twin Fan.
I'm anonymous. My family differs significantly in their religious and political views from myself, so I want the freedom to speak my mind without worrying about offending them or having to defend my political opinions when I'd rather be visiting with my nieces and nephews. I don't hide my opinions from my family, but if they're constantly reminded about them from reading my hubs then it will forever be a subject of discussion.
I've told my immediate family, but a lot of them seem uninterested in reading anything I have written. I do post my hubs to Facebook, and every once in a while someone will say, " I agree with the author- I just realized it's you !"
None of my family or friends know that I am a hubber. It's just nothing I've really told them - and I'm new. I joined here wanting to improve my writing skills. Eventually I hope to make some extra money... But I know that is a long ways away
Most of them know I’m up to something, but I’ve not told them the details. One friend was interested and he’s been to one of my Hubs, but most aren’t really that interested – I think if I start to make money they’d be more curious!
I don't show my hubs to my friends and family. I guess maybe since I know them I don't want to be under their criticism. But I have told family and friends that I write on here, just never showed them any of my writings.
My best friends know that I am into hubbing. My family also knows. I don like to keep secret from them about what I am doing. But they hardly know exactly what I am writing because they are not into very much reading excluding my son. He sometimes know that on what topic i am writing what.
I haven't officially told anyone specifically about Hubpages. My boyfriend knows I love to write and that I spend a great deal of time on my lap top, but I doubt he would actually care to sit down and read anything that I have written. To be honest, I don't recall ever seeing him read about anything besides motorcycles or rock bands....oh well.
Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was...
Is HubPages trying to discourage its writers and get them to quit writing?Every time I publish a hub my Hubber score goes down then it goes up by 1-2 points and then down by 1-2 points. Then when I am not on here...
What do you think about the idea of having wills set aside for each and every writer here on the hubpages platform? I've had this discussion in the past with another hubber within the community and we thought that it...
At least it is an interesting statistic.OK, I've been here long enough to know there are ups and downs (and I know this is a summer weekend). It will probably shake out to a better percentage later. I'm not...
