    "Who do you think you are?" when you come here as a writer, to share, teach, impress, or so on?

    We put on our writers cap and come here with a purpose: perhaps to save america, or help the children, or inspire beauty, straighten other people out, show the path to spirit or wealth, and so on... and we think we are the person who has something useful to share on such subjects... who do you think you are when you are when you are in the action of writing a hub?  The person who sees through the propaganda?  The person who truly knows God?  The great parent?  The great chef or gardener? The moderator?  Who?

    Which country in America are you trying to save, perhaps?

    I think I'm a sarcastic doofus who's probably too old to care this much about crappy movies and music performed by hairy guys with anger management issues. But hey, they say "Write what you know," and it's what I know.

    I am me. When I write, regardless of if it is a hub, a reply to a hub, an answer to a question or whatever, I am me. I call upon my education, my experience as a former news reporter and researcher and when appropriate offer my comments--the comments of a nearly 62-year-old male citizen,who is unemployed after working two different jobs for a total of 36 years,  married with one child, former Baptist who became a Catholic, college graduate and married for 32 years.

    My politics are moderate. I do not belong to a political party. I check my sources and question others if the sources for their opinions are not noted.

    To answer your last question. I am a participant.

    I assume the role of an online article writer. When I first started at Hubpages, I didn't really come here for the purpose of making an income (though its been a pleasant outcome). I came to Hubpages to share the passion of my interests in life which are varied (one being writing), and to broaden the awareness of the reader on the topic that was presently inspiring me. My aim is to provide the reader with an new idea, to spark a new thought, share a different perspective, or simply entertain.

    When I write a hub, my mind focuses on my writing, researching and the audience  for whom my article is being written. After I write it and it gets the OK, I become a social media twit, networking and posting links to my new and old hubs to keep the traffic flowing.

    Well, I keep it in my name. "Tips N' Tricks" (TNT) I like to dig into games, and find some of the more interesting things to be seen in them. Sometimes it can be a simple strategy, others, it can be a convoluted reference to some other character or series (of course, references aren't usually convoluted, but It gets the point across.) Sure, I like to review games, and do some other things every now and then. I really jumped around with topics this past week. But, in the end, the biggest factor in my coming to hubpages is my desire to dig around for sparkly little video game gems.

    so, as a direct answer to your question. I think I'm a guy who likes to dig for neat things in video games (and has an awful tendency to type too fast, and make consequent spelling errors).

    A good part of the time I've been been a person (a writer) who has wanted to get away from writing what other people are paying me to write, or else just find an enjoyable (and productive) use of available time; who has written on whatever subject came to mind at the moment.  That's been the writer part of me. 

    Then, though, there's the "person part of me".  Besides wanting/needing to earn money when a divorce made finding full-time work in a bad economy even more difficult; the person part of me actually began writing online because I had been shaken to the core to discover (through that divorce) that after a lifetime of just kind of assuming I had no particular problems being understood in this life, and no particular problem in interpersonal relationships (I'd always pretty much gotten along with people and had a reputation at work for that and a number of other "interpersonal-relationship" skills); I was picked up by authorities because someone thought I was "nuts" when I left my marriage.

    I was released without even a full evaluation, and I would later get a "clean bill of mental health" from a private professional; but from there I went through what is known as "legal abuse" (when lies are presented in court and the individual has no opportunity to get the truth "established" in court).  Year after year had gone by, and I'd never "gotten back from" any adult connected with the court and/or me, personally, the reality that there was not, and never has been, anything at all wrong with me.  I've never cared what much what people think of me, but when we are treated/talked to in a way that doesn't match the truth, that's something else.

    I'd never been anyone who made it a point to explain my thinking/beliefs to anyone because I didn't think I had to.  After enough years passed I started to get uncomfortable (and frustrated) not to get back from the world any word or sign that the truth had been figured out; so I figured I'd write "whatever" online as my way of "making available to anyone interested"  that I'm not "some weird, over-sensitive, writer-type with a big imagination" and that I'm a normal, unimaginative, mother of three who is capable, strong, sensible, and pretty much only interested in sharing what I think I can about understanding other people better (and NOT imagining what they think, or what their motives are, simply because we don't understand why they do/say something).

    Also, I'm working up to writing what I REALLY want to write.
