I love it. People here have been so good to me and made me feel quite welcome by enjoying my hubs. I think it's a great place to read, write and learn. I learn new things about myself and others everyday. It's all good, as learning is what life is all about.
I'd rather smile anyday than be ticked off and I think hubbing makes me happy. Does my hubbing make others happy? Well, I hope so, that's all we can do. I've accomplished a lot in my life time, and you know what....until today, no one has ever attacked it. First time for everything but yes, I'm a happy hubber. Thanks for asking!!! haha
me too, me too! I'm lovin' hubbin'. I love seeing a message in my inbox that I have a new comment, or that one of my favorite hubbers has published a new hub. My only problem seems to be I spend a lot more time reading here than writing...but that's not a new problem for me. Sort of my life story, actually!
Yeah... reading gets the best of me sometimes too. I need to finish putting up some stuff! Hubbing is very fun! It's great to see that you're being read, or at least looked at!
There are quite a bit of talented writers here! I wish there were more constructive comments on my hubs, but I'll live without them.
I love the whole system....the hubtools, forum, comments section, immediate help/response in forums and everything.
I hope hubbing includes everything as told, right?
Thanks ProCW, I'm trying. Taking deep breaths, whew. that got me. got to admit.
Hey it's good to be a happy hubber tho....it saves my day quite often....life being the kick the bootie it can be at times.

Hey we could make a tongue twister I think....Happy hubbers have happy hubbing hanging happily hearing hubbers hub. say it fast 5 times...
yeah, it's not easy and I wrote it.....easier to write than say. No glib tongue, mine.
Having a humble and hopeful hubber that's happy is better than having a haughty and hateful hubber that's a handful.
This is a great place to write, read, learn and think about more writing, reading and learning. To those of you who just awoke from a writing slumber, this is a great place to get sharp again. As much as I knew that I didn't know what the hell I was doing, the people of this community poked and prodded me forward when I needed it.
You will discover (as i just recently have) that being friends with Hubpeople is great and they are a nice bunch, but if you want to succeed in this world, you better have thick skin. If you want everyone to answer every little question you have but you didn't bother to read any of the info available to you...look out!
These are some of my many lessons here at hubpages that newcomers might benefit from hearing.
1) Don't use the forums to promote your own hubs, use them to make your hubs better.
2) Tweaked all your old hubs regularly, it can be more important than you realize!
3) Don't act like a crybaby or you will get spanked. If you do something wrong and people call you out on it, don't fight back out of insecurity...let it go, let it grow...
4) The moderator is NOT out to get you. Relax. Deep Breath. Try again.
5) If you don't fully understand what spamming is, you should find out before you end up doing it unknowingly.
6) Look before you leap. If you have a debatable thing on a future hub, ask someone BEFORE publishing it.
7) The question you are about to post in the Need Help Forum is probably already in there if you check a few pages worth of subjects.
8) If you come off like a know-it-all, there is no room for the conversation to go. If you leave certain points out of your text, that will invite a debate.
9) When I started 2 months ago, I didn't know what an URL was, much less a backlink or an Adsense account. If I can do it, you can do it....cause I'm a goofy bastard.
10) I just learned how to post videos 2 weeks ago, now I make my own...in other words it is what YOU make of it.
HAPPY HUBBING HUBBERS. I dig the whole lotta ya.
I agree with DJ Funktual. I have received more positive help from HubPages than other places like Helium. Quick feedback and comments from other Hubbers helps keep me on track for writing great stuff. Which, in the end I care more about improving my skills than any criticism I may endure. Criticism + Positive Feedback = Balanced and progressive money making skills.
What are you kidding me? No, I am not in abusive relationship at all. And you posting something like that is so very far out of line its almost amazing. I suggest you delete that, as it's libel.
And I did not "lash out". Nor could I be arsed to do so. I simply called a spade a spade. Couldn't give a toss what silliness is said otherwise, as long as it's not said under the guise of being expert advice.
My mistake. That, at least, would have explained your surly, unprovoked attacks. But since that's not the case, <snipped-- no personal attacks!!!>!
how's the weather out your way? CW good to see you....it's sure hot here in Florida rained a bunch last few days and now we're all steamed.
Hotter than usual here... or maybe that's just my arse...
Yes, and by the way, who are you so afraid of that might see that?
You aren't fooling me for a second, but yes, I'll delete it... for your safety.
Please don't cause this happy thread to be closed too. Let's be nice.
PS: My brother-in-law is a lawyer. I'm not buying your "libel" bull either. "Libel" is to insault another. Nothing I said was insaulting to you, actaully, it was quite to the contrary... in your defense. 'Me thinks thou protests too much."
In this case, libel is to put into print a false statement about someone else. The first several sentences were written as though they were facts.
You're actually still implying it was true, but since the original post is gone, I don't much care anymore.
everybody loves somebody sometime .....from Dean Martin...wasn't he a dream....
Hey CW since this is a happy forum for all happy hubbers to dwell...do you have a recipe you might do a new hub about? I'm getting hungry your chocolate chip cookies were delicious
and DJ, you're right, I tweaked my older hubs and boy the traffic picked right up. Don't know what I did, but it worked. Moved some pics down from the text...I guess the google gods liked that part. haha
nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven....I often find baking up something sweet makes everyone in the house feel good. I did that a lot as a foster parent. Now, cookies don't fix everything, but I've never known anyone to eat a cookie and be mad...while chewing a warm chocolate chip cookie? nope can't happen.
I really enjoy hubbing. I have to be honest - I started "hubbing" with business in mind, but it turned out to be such fun, that I am now hubbing mostly for fun.
I'm happy to announce I just crossed 35,000 views! Hubbing rules!
dj !!!!! you're the bomb wowowowo that's super I can't imagine that many views!!

I just started hubbing and I was wondering if those who had been here a while could let me know what kind of results they have had with the referral program? Has anyone tried running advertisements with their hubpage url anywhere? What kind of results did that get? Thanks!

Hi! Hubbing is great, plus writing and reading can be equally rewarding. Will you ever incorporate an arrow for the first page, and an arrow for the last page. With so many hubs, writers, and topics, it would be great to have a box to place a page number in, so you can be brought to a specific...

Are you a huge fan of hubpages? Do you find you just can't stop writing hubs? Well if so, I want you to tell me, what would make you stop hubbing? It can be as outrageous or funny as you like. I'll start.I'll stop hubbing when I am ahead of Hal Lacino in my number of hubs.

Hubbing is cool. Hubbing let us explore and research. Hubbing ignites creativity.However, when all such efforts go completely unnoticed and hubs gather dusts with any views and traffic, it is difficult to keep the motivation.I must be doing something wrong. Seeking help and advice from fellow...

Though the HP community stands for love and cooperation, some hubbers hurt the feelings of fellow hubbers through their harsh comments. Recently I had such a bad experience. Have you ever felt a painful experience here? Can you please share?
