    I have been a little shy. Maybe, even a little overwhelmed by HP. I must truly say that I have had a very positive experience on HP. I have been given the opportunity to learn about blogging, SEO, and marketing from this community. At first I expected to make tons of money right away, but I now realize that it takes time. With that said, I definitely enjoy writing here. Hello to you all!

    Hi davenstan, glad to see you are enjoying HP. Like you, I learned more about SEO since joining.

    HP has to be the friendliest online community around. Do any of you have professional writing experience? I sure don't. I am receiving on the job training.

    It's good to meet you here, davenstan - I have felt welcomed here, and I've met some great people, too.  As you mentioned, there's a wealth of information on this site, and people have been very generous in sharing knowledge that helps us learn how to maximize the opportunities here. I'm thankful for the friends I've made and what I've learned.

    Although I don't have an SEO background, I do have many years' experience as a professional writer. I've written several hubs on ways to earn money as a writer and how to be a better writer. Several other Hubbers have strong backgrounds, too. Another person writing about the craft is cclitgirl, in case you want to check either of our hubs to see if there are helpful tips.

    Please let me know if I can be of any help!
