I am glad I found Hubpages as I am addictive by nature. Writing never came natural to me but as I am trying to quit smoking I need something else to do with my hands. When I look back at my first writings (during my first phase of quitting cigarettes) I notice that they are dry, long and seriously serious to the point of almost boring. I say almost because after all I did write them I don’t want to say they are totally boring. Thank to Hubpages not only did I find an outlet but I was able to see myself as others had seen me during my first week and by the third week I have learned to lighten up a tad. Since I was not aware of my actions then I can look back and honestly say Boy do I feel sorry for my coworkers and thank god that they like me and understand what I am trying to do. However I work for TSA as an airport screener and I do not know if the passengers thought.
Thanks Hubpages for giving me a new addiction.
Hi Michael, Glad you found HubPages, and best of luck quitting smoking.
Goodbye to your old addiction and good luck with the new one!

Is everyone disappointed about HubPages new system/standards?I've been noticing some people express disappointment with the way HP is running business lately. Some people have lost Features, and others are having difficulty getting featured. I haven't had this problem at all yet. I'm not trying to...

During my time at Hub Pages, I have encountered plenty of wonderful, ingenious writers who create original, unique content which is fun and interesting to read. However, I have also encountered plenty of users who create boring, uninteresting Hubs simply with the purpose of MAKING MONEY. Everything...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these might be. Many of my hubs were previously published in my local newspaper, the...

Why have my views per day gone from 100 to almost nothing? I have published 49 hubs, 36 of which are featured, 12 which are not featured due to engagement and one because of poor quality. Does anyone else have a similar issue?
