    look, I'm doing my best, I try, but I am woeful. Why am I ignored and passed over. Here I am, plodding along, making hubs, spending time to educate, inform and be humorous, yet few appreciate it.

    Perhaps I should just pack it up? Perhaps I should resign myself that this isn't the place for me?

    Maybe I'm low and depressed. Maybe things aren't as grim as I imagine. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough. Oh woe.

    Did I tell you that my dog died recently. It was just after I lost my job, which led to me losing my house. And then my wife left me. And she took the kids. Then I lost the car. Then I walked out of a bar and got splashed by a Lincoln. So my pants were soaked. So I returned to the bar and they banned me for being improperly attired.

    So then I went to a hotel and they refused my credit card because it was invalid. So I wandered around and a tramp took pity and gave me a dollar. Which I gambled on a horse. It lost. So then I wandered around the alley and a cat gave me a half eaten fish.

    Eventually I ended up in Colorado, and I got arrested because I looked like an illegal immigrant. Then I finally got to Texas. So I sung about my sorrow, and they gave me some cowboy clothes and they loved me. I'm a Country and Western singer now.

    But hubpages don't love me. What more can I do?

      You could always re-invent yourself and become a blues sing instead.  Stevie Ray was great long before he died.  You could be too.

    I try not to care - but your plight has touched me deeply, if you send me all your credit card numbers and passwords I will transfer some of the money I am getting from a Nigerian Prince who emailed me earlier about my unknkown dead Uncles millions languishing in his bank.
