    I have been on hubpages for less than a month and I just feel so warmly welcomed! I have been nominated with a hubnugget twice and even won! I also have met some fantastic people that were willing to talk with me through email when I voiced a real-world (versus virtual-world) problem. This meant so much to me. Recently a question I asked on HP facebook page was made a podcast! Simone even mentioned me name smile I am DEFINATELY feeling a part of the community. What is your experience with feeling a sense of community on HP?

          I am going to assume this is open to anyone. For me it was when a few of the people who had been writing on hub pages for years actually spent time reading and commenting on my work. This was done with comments and with in house emails.

          English is a third language for me and writing in it always feels backwards. I know I still make mistakes but not near as many as I did when I started. Reading what good writers write and following their example, with feedback has helped immensely.

          The feeling that what I wrote had value did more for me than anything. I have gone on to write blogs almost daily and don't believe this would have been possible without the people of hub pages.

    You reap the benefits of whether you help or ask for help. Use your fellow Hubbers for advice, because one day,you'll be the one helping others out.

    The HubPages community is awesome. No other place feels like home! You won't find a staff that offers useful information and real connections like the HP staff.  KrystalD, you are off to a fantastic start, and a very welcome Newbie for sure! I can't wait to see just how great you do in the very near future.  cool

    I am excited and the community feel makes writing a pleasure (even more so). It is motivating! I am sure will need that as developing a following and niche (which I think is exciting) takes time. Glad I get to do that amongst such encouraging people.

    KrystalD--You're exactly right about this site. People are so warm, welcoming, and helpful. It makes you want to give back to newer hubbers once you start learning stuff yourself. I've been on here about 6 months and still love it as much--or more--as I did starting out. Glad you feel that way!

    I just checked your Hubs and I have to say that you deserve love from any writing sites. Your Hubs are great and I am sure you will get more success once you become an old members here. The older your Hubs will get the better they will perform. Unfortunately my Account is under probation and all of my hubs are moderated for keeping the quality. I do face trouble with my grammar since English is not first my language. But I am glad nowadays I can publish hubs without facing much trouble.

    I wish you best of luck smile

      Thank you tnvrstar. Are you the hubber that so many kind hubbers were trying to help our with grammar? I can't imagine writing in a language that was not my first! You are brave and I encourage you to keep working on those hubs!

    Well I suppose there is an element of love. 

    I mean I never got a HubNugget so there wasn't a lot of love in that area. Neither have I had a Hub of the Day, which I may have mentioned before.

    On the plus side hardly anyone has shown actual hatred towards me. Less than twenty I'd say, which is better than in the real world that's for sure.  Lol and smiley face.

    Someone once said "your writing is great when it stops" which I took as a compliment, although I understand that in some countries it may not be.

    .....

    Oh.  Do I HAVE to be serious?

    I still can't quite believe how helpful, friendly and fun HubPages is.

    And you seem to be off to a good start!

    I felt more love in the beginning when I joined HubPages. People were so welcoming to me.  They are still giving me love, but as I don't write very often, I sometimes don't get that love that I got when I first started on here. Still, it is nice to know that people read your hubs and appreciate your efforts. smile

    I'm also new here and I share the same experience with you. People here are so friendly and helpful. Honestly, I came here at HubPages to try to make money. But now, I also look forward to making new friends. HubPages is a great community. I am definitely feeling the love.

    Hi KrystalD; it's nice that you've had such a great experience here. I joined about 2 weeks ago and I'm still getting the hang of it. I hope to meet more positive people here on HP in the future.

    You will reap what you sow here with the hubbers, crazy or not - and so I guess you're sowing goodness and love and all that.  Now if you ever want sarcasm, undiluted ridiculousness, and fun with wordplay and silliness - that would be me!  also slightly veiled references to x-rated silliness, whatever that is.  Once you run out of vroom and are idea-less (which happens to some of us) just come to the forums and goof around for awhile.  WARNING!  its addictive!

    While I don't know that I can express it as colorfully as you have, KrystalD, I have to say I've been pretty happy with HP in my few weeks here as well.  I won a couple of HubNuggets, which made me feel like my work is appreciated, and people have been very nice.  I have a lot to learn.  I don't quite have the social/followers part down yet, but that will come eventually I'd imagine.  I hope HubPages continues to be a cool place to write for a long time to come!
