Hooray, I just received notification from HP that I hit my seven-year anniversary. Thanks for the congratulations, HP. They suggested that for my anniversary present I buy myself a new set of HubPages writing tools (laptop, tablet, phone, camera, notebook...)". Hum, I don't think I can improve on what I already have, an Apple iMac 27 with LED backlit retinal display and a 2-year old iPhone 6 Plus with a good built-in camera. But thanks for the suggestion. When I start making real money on HP, maybe I will. BTW, I abhor laptops. I inherited my son's and it languishes in the closet.
The least I can do is congratulate you on your seventh anniversary, may you enjoy many more.
Congrats!! I hit 7 years awhile back...seems like just yesterday when I first started writing here. Hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
Congrats, BizB! My seven year anniversary is coming up next month.
Congratulations! It’s a great achievement!
Thank you, Chitangrada. Nice hearing from you.
It is, considering I became discouraged and nearly left after six months. A few others gave me encouragement and the incentive to stay. I'm glad I did.
Congratulations, MizBejabbers! I agree laptops are the pits, but it's all I've had lately. While on vacation in Michigan, I'm using the public library computer a couple times a week.
I'm dreaming of have my own good video system to begin posting on YouTube and then using my own videos on my articles. That dream seems a long way away.
Congratulations! Whatever technology you end up using, we're glad to have you writing.
I hate laptops too. I don't use them. Perhaps it's just fear, insecurity ... you know. The same old problem that applies to everything else or perhaps I'm past it. Ha ha.
Write a Hub for this great event and enjoy yourself. Pity they don't offer us something tangible for this.
Manatita, the reason I don't like laptops is because I have visual problems. I've had lasik twice and now I have lens implants and still wear correction. In addition, I was treated last year for a condition in my left eye that my retinal specialist wouldn't define as wet AMD, yet he wouldn't say it wasn't. He eradicated the current problem, but that doesn't mean it won't return. I had a retinal hemorrhage in 1990 in the same eye.
My problem is that the screens on most laptops are no more than 17 in. and I need a large screen. Currently I'm using an Apple iMac 27 and love it. At work we used dual 21 inch monitors, but my 27 in screen still enables me to use it in a dual capacity. On a smaller screen I sometimes have to get it in my face to read the screen to research on one screen and type the document on the other. I had a 10 in. laptop for awhile, and it was almost impossible to get it close enough to my face to read print that I couldn't enlarge to 12 o4 14 pt.
I see. Look after your eyes. Mine's Glaucoma, but I guess it's just to fiddly for me with these small computers. Best wishes.
Manatita, thanks. Sorry to hear you have glaucoma. I guess I need to do a hub about my latest bout with blood in my retina and having to have needles stuck in my eye. Somebody a couple of years ago did a forum on the rhyme that had "stick a needle in my eye" in it. She got some interesting replies.
Nice job on sticking with it. Even though my profile says my account is a year old that is not the whole story as I originally made my account and abandoned it. I only recently actually wrote something and I have now been writing almost a year.

Hi HP Community,I wanted to acknowledge my 10 years at HubPages by thanking those special hubbers over the years and all of those great fellow writers I've met and learned from along the way. Without the help, support and encouragement I received, I would not have figured out, nor would I have...

It is hard to believe that 13 years have passed since I wrote my first post on this site. Many things have changed over the years, and what I appreciate most are the HP friends from all around the world that I have gotten to know. Cheers to friendships new and old!

Well, I decided to write the title but not the hub, lol. Seriously, what kind of traffic would it get anyway, . So I decided to celebrate my 2-year anniversary in a forum post by sharing tidbits I've learned along the way. Hopefully, it will help HP newcomers/Squidoo transfers on the journey to a...

Hello Hubbers,Today I have completed one year at HubPages. I can't believe that I have completed one year on this wonderful writer's platform. I would like to thank many people who have given me the motivation to write when my hubs didn't pass initial boot camp. Thank you, Paul Edmondson, for...

Ok It's been 7 years since I started and I have enjoyed it ever since. There have been times when I almost gave up and lately I've had writers block, but maybe things will improve .
