I've posted some of my poetry, but I really don't know much about this site. Would love some constructive criticism. Thanks
Welcome to HubPages! There are many poets here and you can bet you will fit right in. Once you get really comfortable it becomes an addiction.
I don't really know much about poetry-- but some here, do. Welcome. Come in and look around. You might like it.
Welcome to HubPages. We have several great poets here, also wonderful community to shares the thought. I hope you will like it.
A lot of real poets were here, they packed their hubs and left. Disillusionment, perhaps?
Hubpages is a great platform to share your content and you will get a lot of readers here.
if you want to adopt the easier, modernist approach of slicing and dicing some minced prose that you sell as poetry on the label, it wouldn't hurt to throw in some poetic techniques; think assonance, consonance, rhyme, chiasmus, alliteration...
By posting this, do you mean that I do not use enough poetic techniques?
Rae, I advise you to completely ignore Sullen91. He's been pot stirring all over the forums claiming grand knowledge of writing despite having only written 7 hubs in 3 months.
If you check out some of his other posts you'll discover he has nothing good to say about anyone but himself.
Welcome to HubPages!
There are a lot of poetry writers on HubPages. I have written a piece or two(or ten).
I'm not sure why you're on HubPages, (a) to write for the sake of writing or (b) to write and earn while doing so.
Your profile page is so other writers and readers can get to know you. So, please do fill it out by talking about yourself. I am one to talk, because my profile says nothing about me, but my writing does. But, whatever you do...add something to it.
There are plenty of hubs to read, if you want to earn, but that's another story for another time.
Just to let you know, you came into the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread, which means, that you can post links to your hubs, like 2-3 or 4 like poems size.
There is no self-promotion allowed in the forums. But posting links here is allowed. I have taken the liberty to post the 3 hubs you've written, so you do not have to.
I'm off to check them out.
Thank you so much for the information!
I skimmed through it just now, but I will be back several times to reread and follow your advise. It's so late right now, I can't really concentrate on much and I am about to sleep. But this is very appreciated.
Welcome to HubPages - so glad you've connected with Cags! Nice to meet you. You will find lots of poets here - nice to meet another.
A posie for you...
Hey RedElf, thank you for the ringing endorsement. Nice to see you again and hope you are well. I've been doing well.
a very warm welcome, the more poets the merrier..... I will take a look at your work.
Wow I didn't expect such a warm welcome. I'm already beginning to like HubPages! Thank you for taking the time to read and help me out.
Cagsil, I'm here mostly because I love to write, but if I can also manage to earn, that would be great! I'm working on my profile now.
Good afternoon Rae.
Here are a couple of hubs for reading to get you started.
Frogdropping, a wonderful writer and a beautiful woman, wrote a couple of hubs about helping out new people.
Darkside, an awesome writer, wrote hubs on the basics of HubPages.
That should be enough for now. I have others, but let's get you on your way first, then worry about earnings and what needs to be done for that to happening.
Awesome. I'll start that now. Thanks
Btw, Cags, my profile pic is me. I don't know how to reply to the messages I get without commenting on a Hub, but I'll learn. Still trying to keep up haha.
I asked the question in my fan mail to you, so you could answer it in this forum thread, because I knew you were here already. You're welcome too.
You will find that this is a wonderful dating site...
but people are way to focused on writing things and making money
Haha I don't think I'll be using the dating aspect of it any time soon.
Quick question, are you actually Greek?
The reason I'm asking is because I am mostly Greek.
Don't be mad...
Check out this thread...

i think i will go back to basis and take a look at some of these hubs too thanks Cagsil
Welcome to the site! I'm a poet at heart but I write because I want money... in all honesty, you will never make money writing poetry at hubpages (or 99% probably not). But you will get some great constructive criticism.
So you can make money here, but the best way to do that is well - read some of the great hubs by people who do make money (some listed by other hubbers above!). Basically how to, informational and sales hubs make money. Creative writing rarely does (unless you're really lucky or find a topic people are googling.)
Good luck and feel free to throw any questions out at the forums!
I'm well. How are you doing?
I'm doing well.
However, I just realized it now and you might not know it, if you haven't read any of my hubs(which I do not mind if you haven't), but....
My first name is Ray, short for Raymond.
I just now started to laugh about it.
I realized that this evening as well. So I started exploring your profile a bit, and I read your bio. I found it very interesting. I've been browsing through people who've followed me trying to keep up with everyone's work. I'll end up commenting on your hubs, I'm sure.
That is really interesting - I'm named after my grandfather, Raymond.
Hey, I figured while we have this conversation still alive and going, I might take this chance to get people to visit a profile of my friend's.
When he found out that I was using HP and how much it inspired me to write even more now that I have a way to share it, he decided to make one too so that he can both keep track of my work and post some of his own.
He is a musician, so I think he will mostly post lyrics. He may do other things as well.
He hasn't posted anything yet, but he will.
Here is his profile:
What the heck is that ad doing in here?
Anyway, I love prose of all types, technical, funny, how to, etc., never can get why people like poetry. However, I did read yours and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't mind them too much. From me, that is a complement.
Welcome to HubPages, looks like you are gonna' do well!

Thanks to Amazon being 2 months behind, I'll still get a good payout in October. After labor day though my earnings dropped like a rock (as expected) This months payout will still exceed $1200.00.. So during this unseasonal down time is when I edit and write more articles.. Hope HP hangs in there....

I am new to both but just wanted to say that I am very much impressed with HubPages. I put up some stuff there first and then found out about this site. So, I put up a few things here as well. The difference is incredible. Both sites are relatively easy to negotiate and...

I just joined the site recently. I was reading how you can use adsense and other things on here. I also saw how you can have profiles and everything.My main reason for making this account is to comment on people's Hubs and leave them Fanmail for my favorite authors. A friend told me about Hubpages...

I just joined Hubpages and I have no idea how this works. I need help and I'm willing to take any constructive critism offerd me. Please don't be cruel. I'm just another writer trying to get my voice heard.
