      Through a guy on the Warrior forum. A great guy too.
      He was selling a $30 eBook that was about earning on-line the free and easy way.

      At the time, i had just applied for Paypal and was waiting for approval (or is it confirmation?), and couldn't meet the last day of sale. I asked him if i could have some kind of extension till my PP becomes active.

      But guess what? he gave me the ebook for free and told me not to tell. I cant mention his name, but his book was so great, a step by step guide.

      I wrote some lenses and hubs and told him to tell me how i was doing, and he gave me further advice.

      He brought me to where i am today. I bet he is here on Hubpages, and ive searched for his name, but no luck. Probably has a different user name, and he hasn't been at the WF for a couple of years now.

      Thank you XXX. If you are here, please send me a PM

    After a erm... painful experience with Fiber One bars, I googled the deviant plastic-wrapped creations and discovered Shadesbreath's Hub on his own experiences. In complete sympathy at his sufferings I created an account (not realizing you could comment without one?) and wrote a commiserating reply. He liked it and encouraged me to join. So here I am. It's a good story. I tell it at parties.

    I followed a link on Craigslist to a controversial hub.  Made quite a few comments there, then found the forums and that was fun, too.

    Eventually signed up to write my own controversial hub and see what happened - not much.

    Two months later, saw something in the forums about making money on HP.  The rest of the sordid history can be seen in 124 hubs...

    Quite by accident.
    I was looking for interesting sites for young people, typed some assortment of words into Google, and up popped a link to Hub Pages.
    Made an account (thinking that you had to if you wanted to comment) and told the author of the website hub that I really liked her article.
    I figured that since I had an account, I might as well see what this place was all about. Glad I did. smile

    I was just digging around a year or so ago and thought it was interesting. I remembered it a few months ago and signed up. It's working out so far. Most people are helpful and patient, and you can read other people's opinions on just about anything.

    Shear luck. I was looking for a writing job, then I tried out for some local online paper. It didn't pan out and there was some talk from that place about Hubpages. So here I am.

    I had just become a stay-at-home mom, and I was looking for some work online that I could do from home. I stumbled across HP in a review of freelance sites.

    I had been interested in writing a book but was having trouble tying the chapters together in a cohesive manner.  I decided to take a course at the local junior college.  After explaining my dilemma to the instructor she asked me if I had ever considered simply writing articles.  That led to me searching online for places to write articles.  I stumbled on someone's article about writing for HubPages.  Before that 6 weeks class was over I think I had already published about 5-10 articles and made my first 14 cents.  smile  That was over 3 years ago.

    I found HubPages by surfing my internet.  I was reading an article and I saw that the author was from HubPages.  I decided to comment and I started to read more articles.  I was writing on a previous post and that relationship was not positive to say the least.  I wanted to continue to write so there was HubPages and it has been quite an amicable relationship!
