I was super excited to see that YouTube picked my channel (Create with Claudia) as today's (Oct. 9, 2020) "Creator on the Rise". Honestly, I can't believe that I'm on their trending page for the next 24 hours.
I started out writing here about 8 years ago on a whim. Never even considered writing online at all. I saw an ad in an online newspaper and decided to give it a try. I stuck to it and it took a while, but my numbers and support here grew and grew. About 2 years ago I got up the nerve to quit my part time job and try my hand at my own website.
Now I have my own website, I'm getting decent traffic on my YouTube channel, I'm one of the editors over at CraftGossip[dot]com, and one of my projects here was featured in Woman's World magazine.
And yeah, this might be a bit of a bragging post (sorry about that)...but the reason I wanted to write this was to point out that I never would have gotten to this point without writing for HubPages. And more importantly, that it never would have happened if I hadn't stuck with it, even when I was frustrated with traffic and income. It did not happen overnight.
I also want to thank the staff at HubPages/Maven for their hard work. I was one of the freelance photographers who took photos for them when they were sprucing up a lot of the articles here a few years back. They work hard & it takes a lot more work than you might think to keep a site like this running.

Congratulations to you! It proves that HubPages not only provides writers the tools, community support as well as a platform in which to write, but can be a springboard to further success. You have proven that point.
Feels good to have stuck with something for so long and to have actually enjoyed doing it and found even a small measure of success. Help me celebrate by tell us all how long you have been with HubPages and your greatest success during that time
Hooray! For months now I've been trying to figure out who to report the "alleged" infringement on one of my hubs where 9 links to ads have been placed. Whenever I would click the link it would take me to an advertisement that required 3 attempts to leave the page without buying the...
I joined HubPages 3 years ago but my last article was a little over an year ago, so imagine my surprise when I received mail from Paypal a few days ago about my first payment from HubPages!I really love this site and I want to continue writing, but I just can't seem to get the inspiration, and life...
