    Hi everyone!

    I do hope that it is not considered in poor taste to post a formal introduction. I didn't see a specific area for this and figured that I should take a leap and say hello!

    My name is Amber, and I am just starting off my little journey here with HubPages. I won't even lie: I am a bit nervous as I am not really much for the spotlight but hey! Time to push those fears aside and get on with it right?

    The only point to this post is to meet new people within this awesome community and hopefully make a friend or two. I am excited to be here and really look forward to writing again. It's been a very long time since I picked up a pen, so to speak. Re-igniting my passion is long overdue, and as Martha Stewart would say, "it's a good thing."

    That's it really. Please feel free to say hello! I am excited to meet you all!

    Happy Hubbin' wink

      Thank you smile I am already really enjoying this place. It seems as though it is far easier to be as creative as you want without so many barriers and obligations that take away from conveying your message in a way that you want it to actually be conveyed. Being that this is my first rodeo with HubPages, care to share any good tips or tricks?

      Pleasure to meet you!

    Welcome!  I am sure you will do well. Study the HP's articles on writing for them and visit the forum often and you will do well.

    Hi Amber. Welcome to HubPages. You picked the best place to write. HubPages has succeeded with giving us the tools needed to rank well with Google. All it takes is using those tools to your best advantage. Check the learning center by clicking the help link on top and always feel free to ask questions in the forums. There are many wonderful Hubbers here who are always willing to help others and answer questions. Best of luck, I’m sure you’ll be doing fine here. Your introduction is already a sign of success.

      What a nice comment! Thank you for that smile

      Yes, I am seeing how wonderfully supportive and willing to help everyone here seems to be. It is awesome and I am really glad that I decided to nix the whole blog thing, and start in a more supportive environment.

      It's a learning curve no matter what you do at first. And honestly, just designing a blog was frustrating me big time (I am not technically inclined lol!)

      I am working on a few pieces still. I will plug away and hopefully get a few more published by the end of the week.

      It is really nice to meet you, and I appreciate that you responded big_smile

      I looooove the community! Of this there is little doubt! I must admit though, I am really not too sure as to how I feel about the censorship thing that I keep encountering sad
