Having been on hubpages for nearly two years, I've noticed a lot of people come and go and so many of those who haven't been here awhile, not realizing the gift that being able to write hub articles can be in terms of reader recognition, establishing a presence on the internet, being an online portfolio of one's talents. Here's one recent example for those of you who are artistic and also write -- I published a hub months ago about science and used some of my own artwork as a picture -- months later, NPR's staff asked permission to use my artwork -- so I'm just saying you never know who is really paying attention and reading what you write -- http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor … =125730340
That is so true, Jerilee! Congrats, and thank you for sharing.
That's awesome! Grats.
I'm still waiting for Random House to discover me and offer me a multi-book contract and several hundred thousand per year based on my vampire spoofs. So far, nothing, but I'm not giving up hope! lol.
Seriously, though, that's very cool!
that's wonderful for you! and awesome artwork!
I try to always keep that in mind when writing. I love the idea of having a great portfolio of different topics. I love the new keyword feature to see how people find our hubs. I think it's going to enable us to build a lot on our existing hubs and branch out more if we choose. I've told my friends that you can read quality articles on HP covering just about every possible topic.
It's amazing the quality of writers that are here.
your hubs are very well written Jerilee. congrats.

Who reads my hubs when they aren't published?I know some of the hits are me, but I know I haven't viewed the page 48 times in one day, so where do the hits come from before a hub is published?

Do you ever get disappointed when you publish a Hub and no one reads it right away?Sometimes I do-- not out of arrogance or self-importance; I feel like a new Hub says, "Hey! I'm here!" and I get all excited that I've published something, and no one reads it right then. :'( Tragic.

Are you a writer who reads or a writer who doesn't read?Almost every article on how to become a good writer emphasizes the necessity to read, read, read. I am not a reader per se; I can't sit down with a novel and almost never read purely for enjoyment. I get all of my information from...

HOW long can a Hub stay alive on here?
by Amber Slater 5 months ago
This may seem like a silly question, but I was wondering:I am currently working on getting a Website up and running, and the purpose will basically be to have a portfolio online. Am I able to essentially copy and past my own articles, or link them somehow (I am learning here lol!) without rocking...
