    So... what do I know. Nothing. I lead a sheltered life and don't get out on the internet much.

    But what I've seen, I'm not real happy with.

    Now I stumble on this Hubpages platform. I think it's pretty great here so far, and I can't wait to do some stuff as soon as i figure out what that stuff is!

    I do hope that I do not get addicted though. Like Minesweeper. I was REALLY addicted to that for awhile.

    See you around,

    Hi Lora,

    Welcome. I haven't been here very long but the site can be addictive. I've met some truly talented writers and learned so much from them. See you around the forums!

    I will for sure look around and see what you know, maplethorpej (weird name, btw)

    Kyriana, in the little bit of snooping I've done, it does look like a lot of great content - Varied and interesting.

    I will need to learn the robes, I'm sure.

    if you got addicted to minesweeper then there is no chance you will not get addicted to HubPages - it is great for compulsives because there's enuf variety to give you the illusion you are actually getting something done.  Spend about 4 hours a day, minimum, in the forums and write a hub and then go back to the forums and then by 3 am you should be slumped over the keyboard ready to go to bed, only somebody posts a picture of a smoking Tasmanian chicken doing the rumba and then you'll have to go read all their hubs to see why they did that!  By 7 AM its time to start another day and you never went to sleep!  That addictive!  - but you'll get over the initial immersion addiction and then just get overly verbose and go looking all the time for funny pics to post to entertain all your buddies.

    like me.

    yeah - it's neato!  lol

      Then I am in trouble.

      I need to take a shower and do the dishes. I also NEED to watch at least one episode of King of the Hill.

      I guess so long as I get off of here by 4 I should be okay.

    Did you watch,"The Brady Bunch" too?

      "Did" is the key word in that sentence. And for that I am ashamed. However, the football to Marcia's nose does kind of justify watching. Don't you agree?
