Do you have a unique or hidden talent? How did you discover it?
I never thought I could sing. The trouble wasn't just a lack of confidence but rather that it never even occurred to me that I could sing, having always imagined that singing was something that just happened naturally and you either had it or you didn't. read more
I must say i am tallented art in drawing, i've discovered not by myself but with the of my parents and friends who told me i had a great eye for drawings. Since then i've been exploring my talent by trying to get my unique style, but i must confess it hasn't been easy due to fulltime work, which it cost me a lot of my time, leaving me to some few hours for week to deliver to my art.
For several years I never realized that I had the ability to write well. Being a resident of a non-English speaking country, I used to think that I could never consider myself on par with native English speakers.
I am very grateful to a close friend of mine who asked for my help in writing content for his friend's website. I agreed to give it a try and did the work with a lot of interest and involvement.
Interestingly the person I did this work for was a native English speaker and I couldn't contain my joy when he appreciated my work and paid me well. Now he is a regular client of mine. That was my first writing assignment and with it began my work-from-home job as a freelance writer.
I do regret not realizing this earlier because, if I had, I wouldn't have struggled hard to retain my day job for several years, the principal reason being that I hated it. I am very passionate about writing and want to continue doing this for as long as possible.
I got pretty good at bboying (breakdancing). It was more of a learned talent than a hidden one, but all of my friends and family members, except for me, were really into dancing. And so they would constantly pressure me to start dancing also, but I didn't find any of the dances that they were doing as something that I wanted to do. Around that same time I saw a Red bull program call bc one that featured breakdancers on it. Ever since, I have been practicing and going to jams to find other breakdancers. I've been doing it for 4 years now.

I have a hub that was not featured due to problems with quality. How do we know what the quality issue is? I read the rating chart and didn't seem to find anything wrong with the hub in question.

I'm very curious to know what the natives think about this.I have been studying English for a long time, and I'll probably be a lifetime learner of the language as I am not a native speaker. On the other hand, I often...

Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?
