    I'm new to Hubpages (joined 2 weeks ago, 4 hubs). I'm trying to get some advice from some more experienced users. I've published a hub to help myself and other new users. Please leave any advice as a comment. I'm also hoping this will help me network with other users and find some experienced users I can follow going forward. Thanks for the help.

      The best way to network with other hubbers is to go out and interact with them.  Go read some people's hub's, leave meaningful comments on the ones that speak to you.  Participate in the community (here in the forums and in comments), and you will find people do so in return.  You have to give to get, especially in the beginning when nobody has met you yet.

      Like others have said, read all the FAQ's and the hubs that have helped others, use the forum search to dig and uncover some great discussions and write what you know and what you are interested about.

      Don't get sucked into the forums too much or you may decide to have a paddy over a discussion and close your account....

      Do more writing....

      Lots of coffee....

      Keep snacks away from your computer....

      Write again.....

      Try to fit in some sleep once a week.....

      Identify the sock puppets and stay clear.....

      Write some more....

      Go on holiday......

      Eat some frozen peas and have a dance.....

    Thank you so much for the advice. I was just going through your vampire spoof hubs and got quite a laugh. I'll make sure I take a look at some more.

    Step 1: Close your HubPages account
    Step 2: Sign Back up under my referral code
    Step 3: Write lots of Hubs that make money

    That would be a great way to make at least friend on here smile

      I'm unfamiliar with the referral program. What does referring someone get you?

    it helps to read all of the HP guidelines and FAQ, read hubs from topics that interest you. if you want you can follow certain categories and those hubs will show up on your feed.
    the Need Help forum also has some good advice.

    there are many hubs here to read. it's like having a huge library. just pick your topic and have fun.
