    Hi everyone,

    Just found myself here a few days ago. Got through the most agonizing part of Hubpages - that very 1st hub. Looking forward to hanging around, meeting new friends through my main passion in life...writing.

    Glad to be here.

      Glad to have you here. Read and commented on your first hub, keep going you're writing is good. Also read your profile, congrats on all your writing awards. One little thing, why not add a profile pic? It doesn't have to be a photo of you, maybe something your writing relates to. Welcome and see you around. smile
