i would simply never write at all. i remember before i joined hubpages, i used to write film reviews for fun, but i was going to stop doing that, as i was starting to see it as a waste of time. then when i saw hubpages, i thought it was an interesting way to make money. however, i did gain a lot more than that though from hubpages, as i met a lot of good people here. many of which hardly ever log on anymore, but still good people nonetheless.
however, to answer your question, i'd probably just watch tv or waste my time playing games during my free time.
I started a blog about a month before I discovered Hubpages. It would probably be dead right now, I probably wouldn't have just handed in my resignation and I'd probably not be preparing to write my book right now either.
I would have been unable to pick myself up from the threats of sadness as a widowed retired teacher living alone at home away from my only family, my 2 daughters working in a distant place. HP opens for me a world of opportunities to become human- living with and loving others in my little room.
I probably would have still continued to write for this academic writing site (which I quit last December) and probably focusing more on eLance. And I would probably still be looking for a place like HP where I can write what I want when I want .
I've no idea where I would be. I was looking for a job online and fell on this after spending hours filling out forms for advertising companies - which should have been easy except with me being in Spain they kept sending the dmn things in Spanish! So it took me twice as long as I had to actually read the questions and translate them in my head first. I'm not sure how I stumbled across HP. I don't even know if there is someone above me claiming earning rights. But when I saw this site, I knew I'd found a home
hmm, I wouldn't be writing a hub about why I love HP!
I have no idea, I may be like the other hubber who mentioned having an awesome farm! I neglected mine to the end that it is probably dead to the point of no return. In fact, I think I deleted Farmville.
or maybe I would be working harder on my first children's book, of which I'm also working on in between life's pause.
I came across HP while I was looking for information for a website business I was trying to get off the ground. I wish I had found HP first I wouldn't be $10,000 in debt and not have any money to finish what is needed for the business. I have yet to publish but find a lot of interesting reading here. I don't have a profile here yet so probably better get working on one.
There is no helpful community like you'll find here at HP. The people here are so helpful, it's awesome. You learn something new EVERY day. And as you put it to practice, you see positive results, always.
If you are where people can teach you and show you the ropes, that's where you'll progress faster and probably get successful.
I have to say its hard to image that I wouldn't have found it another day if I had not found it the day I did, or had not signed up first visit I probably would have after finding several articles hosted here. i guess if I literally had not found HP it would have been because I was not looking for ways to earn money online (I started with blogging for money and when I realised I had no clue what I was doing I found HP! I guess I would be at a day job or watching telly, such a full and rich tapestry to the life of that alternate me!
My boyfriend says "What good are Hubpages? I never heard of Hubpages before. If I were looking on the Internet, I'd never run across Hubpages. Who's ever going to see your blogs. You're wasting your time.? If I were looking for your blog I'd never find...
https://rvbodyrepairsanjose.wordpress.com has stolen two of my articles. He generally writes about auto repairs, but somehow decided that two of my RV articles would look good on his site. If you write about auto repairs, you may want to check to see if he has taken one of yours.In my...
First of all, I want to say that I am not considering leaving Hubpages. However, I am seriously considering starting my own website/blog, in addition to keeping my HubPage account. So, here's my understanding on how to go about starting my own site, bear in mind I don't know a lot about it: Buy and...
First, apologies to Tori since it will SEEM like I'm picking on her HotD - I'm not. These featured hubs need to be touched by an editor if Hubpages is ever going to be taken seriously as a 'real' writing site.1. The Title is Wordy2. Restain should be re-stain3. FIRST sentence, misspelled word:...
