    It's hard to imagine that I've been a writer on Hub Pages for 8 wonderful years.  I owe my growth as a writer to many of my Hub Page friends.  Loving my Hub Page life!

      I've been here 7 1/2 and am also amazed  that the time has gone so fast.  It's been quite a ride, but I'm happy I stuck it out.  It took much longer than I expected to finally find some success, but it also took me a long time to learn what I needed to know about online writing.  Along the way, I've met some truly talented and wonderful people,and for that I am ever grateful.

        I have to say "amen" to every word in your comments.  Exactly how I feel.  Hub pages has been a blessing to me in so many ways.  Thank you for your comments and for celebrating with me.

      I have been here for 8 years too but ashamed to say that my earnings is way $1.50 per month with 132 hubs

        You are better, Peachy. Mine is $0.80 per month, much lesser than you.

      That's a great milestone, shows how much stamina you have, how much breath you've got in those lungs of yours! Please keep at it, you've got some excellent hubs for those keen to learn.

      Congratulations on your staying power and your fine-tuned writing abilities as well. We started about the same time and have seen some dramatic changes on this site. It's been a bumpy ride but well worth the pain and growth. Way to go, Audrey.

        Hi Peg.  Yes, we've seen changes and I'd say these changes have been for the better.  There aren't that many of us "old-timers" left.  You've been supportive of my work for 8 years.  That's a long time.  Thanks so much, my friend.

      I agree. Hubpages has probably been one of my best online experiences. Learned a lot here, and HP has been my springboard for learning all about online writing and earning.

      Congrats on 8 years! It's always cool to see people who have been here a long time. I even get on the Way Back Machine once in awhile to see the old original users to see who was here at the beginning. It's funny when those guys were on here I was almost never online except once in a very big while to check my old email. Back then I was always working and partying.

        Hi Nate.  I enjoyed reading your comments.  What year was HP launched?

      Congratulations! I’ve been here about the same - well, 9 Years now! Time sure flys! These days I do more editing of older articles (which  are still going strong), and dealing with copyright violations, than I do writing new Hubs. Best wishes for many more good years to come here!

      1. vocalcoach profile image97
        vocalcoachposted 8 months agoin reply to this

        Well, congratulations to you for 9 years of dedication to HP!  I'm also concentrating on editing every hub.  It's exciting to see my growth during the last 8 yrs. I love hub pages.  Thanks so much.

      Wow, congratulations! I've been here for just a few months and I've thought of quitting a couple of times. It must take a lot of persistance to not give up when you're just starting out.

      1. vocalcoach profile image97
        vocalcoachposted 7 months agoin reply to this

        Thank you!  I've loved every moment of my time here.  The thing is, we learn as we go. When I review my first hubs I can see how far I've come and this is exciting.  Don't quit and don't give up. Comment on hp hubs regularly to build a following. In time, you will see positive changes.  Feel free to contact me for help.  I'm here for you. Going to check out your hubs now.

    I've also got 8 years in. I'm still pretty embarrassed by things which I used to think were good enough. Well, in another 8 years I may start to think I'm okay at this.

    I joined four years ago but then forgot about it as I was busy with other things.  I've been writing on HP for a year and 9 months.  I also love the community and the overall atmosphere. It's such a talented group - writers and staff alike!  Thanks to all for a great 21 months.  Looking forward to many more.

    Got my own 8 year notice just a couple of months ago.  There have been ups and downs, but I agree - overall it's been a great 8 years and I've certainly learned a lot here.

    I will be celebrating four years with HP in June. I didn’t publish very much for the first three years because I have a consulting job that took up a lot of my time. (I was working on a special project.) I didn’t become active on the forums either until December, 2017. Looking back, writing articles at HubPages hasn’t been easy, but it did pay off because I didn’t give up.

    At any rate, congratulations on achieving eight years on HubPages.

      Thanks for your congratulations.  I appreciate this.  It's important not to give up and I'm glad you didn't.  I'll be visiting your neck of the woods real soon.

    Happy 8th HP Birthday! I'm a bit behind you at 6 years but am too happy with my HP life and looking forward to more years here. One of the best decisions I ever made. (and I don't have a long list of "great decisions" so that's quite a compliment to HP...LOL)
    Really though, congrats!

    1. vocalcoach profile image97

      Well, 6 years is a long time and something to be proud of.  I look forward to reading your posts and thanks so very much.

    Congrats! I've been here 7 years and am just also starting to see good things happen and also to realise what a good article looks like! I think HubPages are really doing great things at the moment and long may it continue!

      I totally agree with you.  The knowledge about writing has been invaluable here on Hub Pages. It's a marvelous place for writers.  Congratulations on your seven years!

    Congratulations, Audrey. Eight years is a great achievement. I am approaching nine years here. It is great to see those milestones clock up and good writers still being here after so many years. There have been a lot of changes in that time and all worth it, I'd say, as my per monthly earnings have tripled in the last six months. I look forward to reading your articles for the next eight years.

      Thank you for your congratulations. I didn't realize you are going on nine years...wow!  Yes, lots of changes and I agree they've been good ones.  Thanks for all your support.

    Audrey!  Congratulations!   You're one of our role models here; I so admire your writing and your talent.

    The time goes far faster than I'd ever have imagined. It's already been six years for me, and I remember being so in awe of those who had been here for even 2-3 years. As with you, I've been doing a bit of editing, updating and freshening up with my hubs. They were fun to write, and even though my time to write new hubs is more limited now, I enjoy getting back into it when I make changes.

    This place feels like a family - my biggest blessing has been meeting people like you, "meeting" the staff virtually, and learning from the many experts here who have done online publishing for years.

    Here's to another eight years for you, Audrey!

      Marcy

      The time does seem to fly by here on hub pages.  I love my hub page family and this includes you, my friend.  I'm grateful to all the excellent writers and all that I've learned from their stellar hubs.

      Allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for the years of support.  You're high on my list of friends and talented writers.

      Thank you so much, Marcy.
