Coming Back Under a New Name

My Love of HubPages

If you think that I abandoned HubPages, the answer is no. I’ve logged on everyday possible and still read a few hubs a day. It was always my intention to write on both sites but I found that trying to keep up with my 4 blog sites, Squidoo, and HubPages was just a little more than I could keep up with. Sadly HubPages went on the back burner for me but all the intentions were still there,

Why I Joined Squidoo

I joined Squidoo last year in July. I wanted to see how the other half lived so to speak. I started my new adventure and felt at home right away. I loved all of their incentive awards, trophies, and the people too. There were many faces over in Squid Land that were familiar and that helped when I first started writing over there

Writers from Squidoo Are Awesome

I’m am so happy to see so many people that I met on Squidoo now writing here at HubPages. I only hope that I can make them feel as welcome here as they did for me at Squidoo.

Welcome Squidoo

While at Squidoo I wrote over 94 lenses, joined and graduated from the RocketSquid program, then became a RocketSquid greeter, followed by applying and becoming a Giant Squid. In January of 2014 I became the Soups On Contributor. I have 50 trophies and am proud of each and every one of them.

I really enjoyed my short time at Squdoo. I will miss the site and the people that I may never see again. There are many very talented writers joining HubPages, and I’m so happy to see all of them that I have gotten to know over the last year here.

Welcome Squidoo to HubPages

I'm also known as Just Ask Susan here on HubPages. You can see all of my articles by clicking on the link.

      Hi Susan, I never heard of Squidoo. I'm just getting started on HubPages and still learning how everything works. I don't even get earnings yet. Still trying to figure that our. I envy you doing so many different things. Home computers and all of these blogs were not available when I was your age. I hope you also get a chance to check on HubPages. I have a niece who does everything like you do. She is The Practical Mommy on HubPages.

      Blessing to you and yours.

      Susan, the closing of Squidoo frightened me, but how wonderful that all those brilliant writers, including you, are now in Hubville. Hopefully, touch wood, HP will never follow Squidoo. I'm looking forward to read you :)

      Oh is that why my comment on your post about you surviving breast cancer did not want to save? This was my comment.

      You are truly a remarkable woman. Have you ever read Anita Moorjani her story. Please if not look it up. She is truly a remarkable survivor like you, but she came back from being declared death and today she is FREE of cancer .
