Writing a HubPage: A Crossword Puzzle

I thought I'd try something TOTALLY different and see if you like it. This crossword puzzle is all about writing. Writing HubPages, specifically.

Here is the article containing the answers. Leave me feedback to let me know if you like it and I'll post more (or not!).

Note: You'll need to print out the grid portion on a good printer in order to read the numbers. Or, consider it a double-challenge if you can't read the numbers: try to figure out what fits where!

Good luck!

      Wow, you get bonus points X 10! I doubt I could do it from memory even. LOL

      Unfortunately, it doesn't print well on most printers anyway because HP shrank the photo size and the numbers got fuzzy, so I think it's an extra hard challenge for most folks. Of course, die-hard crossword-herders such as yourself should have no problem with this extra challenge. :-)

      Since I could not print it (my printer is on the fritz) I was doing it all from memory, both the numbers and the words, so it was challenging. I have been hooked on crosswords most of my life so I had to try it! You did a great job. If I had printed it then it probably would have been easy. :-)

      Thanks again, DDE! It was both harder and easier than I'd imagined. I recommend trying it sometime, though: it was fun to do!

      Good idea, donnah75! I'll have to do that. Then, if people don't do the crossword immediately, they'll still know where to find the answers.

      Fun idea. I don't have time to do the puzzle today, but I will keep it for later. You could post a second hub in a few days with the answers.
