100th Hub Goal Achieved

Updated on October 20, 2016

Writing is my Pleasure

True experiences are shared from the heart.

I passed many obstacles in my writing experiences.

To get my work out to my readers has been a great challenge and in many ways.

I joined Hubpages three years ago and have had a fun time writing and commenting on the many informative hubs.

The format and styles are incredible from most writers.

  • My obstacles in writing as follows:

The first time I had my manuscript rejected was in 1997 and thereafter I had six more rejections.

Eventually, I had a breakthrough and did get my manuscript accepted I was very excited for that brief moment. I realized it was from a Vanity Publishing company, I refused to go for the offer.

I did not look back since then I moved on to continue sharing my work on line the better choice for me I that had made during my disappointments.

My writing improved gradually I am not a perfect writer but one who shares what is on my mind and in my own words.

My move to Croatia encouraged me to try different and new options. In 2008 I started writing on line with a greater mind.

I had to try many writing sites before actually finding the one that satisfies me the most that is right here with Hubpages.

We did not have speed Internet at that time in our region the dial-up-connection was available and costly so spending too much time on line was quiet restricted.

I waited for a year until everything fell into place.

I now have Speed Internet and so pleased to continue with my goals in writing.

Once I had that opportunity, I was on my way to writing and sharing my thoughts online. In the beginning I researched many sites wrote for a few and had received payment but was poorly paid and worked many hours daily to get the few dollars I earned into my Paypal account.

I enjoyed the experience. I learned more of the writing field and I had my losses but still did not give up.

I was encourage to move on I knew it would pay off as I continued to write. I just could not stop and not know how everything will turn out.

I knew by not giving up I would see a difference in my work. Writing became my work but mostly a pleasure and now a bit of both.

After moving into our new home we were left without a telephone line for almost five months. It was most frustrating not to have Internet and in my case I was devastated but that problem worked itself.

  • Write and Share:

I have an abundance of articles online and enjoy sharing my work with my faithful readers.

My best experiences came about after I found Hub pages I learned more here. I feel more worthy of my work and know with such a friendly community my work is more appreciated.

All comments I received showed me how much more I can do.

Thank you for all comments!

I share writing from personal experiences of what I read about I don't read much of on line articles or much of any on line information. It won't get me the real spirit I am looking for the writing spirit.

Lives as a writer is challenging but never think you can't do it. Make an effort and do what you know best.

You will only enjoy writing if you do not look at the daily earnings.

I found my way to writing from total enjoyment and gradually I started looking at writing as work and as an enjoyment.

I look forward to each day a few hours at the computer and thereafter my time.

I am eager to learn something new every day and avoid spending too much time browsing online.

I read and improve my knowledge on various subjects this broadens my horizons I read informative books to gain my power in knowledge.

I show my positive side to override my weakness that is my key to having a better life in writing and in my new lifestyle.

My hundredth hub is my best learning opportunity it makes me feel proud of what I have shared and learned along the way.

I learned to accept my new life and had improved on my new skills in writing. It all takes time and it had taken me a while to get here.

I achieve my goal in writing the hundredth hub because of my faithful followers drove me to this stage and just knowing how wonderful they have been to me made me want to continue writing and sharing my work on Hubpages.

A way to express ones thoughts form sadness, to happiness, when angry or depressed, write about that kind of emotion it would make you feel less stressful and more alert.

It is a relief to get anything out of your mind especially if it is a worry to you.

Honesty plays a huge part in writing remember what you write must be your work, only.

The lack of concentration can get you at a loss for a day of writing. I try to write daily and some days I have lots to do then writing falls away for a day or two. I have a social life which fulfills my days that is another part of life that makes me most happy and is very important.

Writing takes time to show you the surprises you really want don't rush it be true to yourself and to your readers. I discovered over time that every individual writes for different reasons and have their spec ail ways of expressing themselves.

  • What makes writing a great Opportunity?

Be grateful for having a friendly community.

Writers who point out your mistakes are worth listening to.

Never fail to write what you know best.

Write to inform others.

Personal experiences often have great morals.

Every article you write should be to the point.

Don't fail your reader's attention.

Learn to be kind in your words.

Present an interesting and well researched article.

Read and re-read to make sure you work is free from mistakes you can never be too sure in proofreading your work.

I have revamped my hubs and have one hub in Editor's Choice that is fine with me but I would have never got to my achieved goal without the friendly community.

It has been a great opportunity for me to write as much as I have and the best is when I read comments from my faithful supporters the give and take effect.

Sometimes my followers feel they can't keep up with me by being a prolific writer that is how I am and my mind is free to write and inform my readers.

Writing from the heart is such a great inspiration I truly admire such talent from all writers.

I have a chance to write more and and learn more.

  • Why do you write?

  • Do you think writing is one of the better ways to relieve stress?

  • Do you write for money or for pleasure?

  • Are you true to your readers?

  • Is writing for failures?

  • What makes you a true writer?

  • Are you waiting to be that True writer?

  • Who inspired you to write?

Writing on various topics can change many lives I write with an open mind and write what I enjoy.

Believe in what you do and have faith in what improves your knowledge.

My ideas shared open the ways of many readers if taken seriously.

Writing for me opens the mind of individuals to all kinds of experiences when one believes then there is hope for life.

  • What would you change about your writing?

  • How much of time do you spend writing daily?

I did not once think I would be an online writer and here I am improving as modern technology takes me and I never fail to comply with my needs.

Don't stop learning knowledge is great when you have it.

Overall my experience at Hubapges has been phenomenal thus far. I met some of the kindest people and from all part so f the world and have read many different hubs from recipes to poetry you name all categories available.

There are many talented writers and I have gained many followers through my steady platform.

      "Devika".....what a beautiful name. I really like the sound of it. Is that a name derived from South Africa? If so, does it have a special meaning? Hope you don't mind my asking. I am fascinated by people's names.....especially when they are so unique.

      Congratulations !, 100 posts in HubPages is really an amazing achievement since I know, it's not easy to write long posts like you've achieved. I have to learn from in dealing with writing blocks, while to make it harder for me that English is not my main language. Like the proverb says, practice makes perfect, I hope that will work on me too.

      I saw that this post was written three years ago, but I loved reading it. I've never written an article about reaching the 100 mark, but yours was inspiring. You will only enjoy writing if you do not look at the daily earnings.

      You were so right when you wrote: You will only enjoy writing if you do not look at the daily earnings.

      I've written and published four novels and two workbooks and I have never earned an income from it. Sometimes a few sales might earn me enough to go out for a dinner, but that is about all. I write on two of my own article blogs and I'm busy with two other novels all at the same time. I love to be creative with words as well as with images.

      Hi Nadine May, I have earned about $500 from kindle publishing and have done well on HP but lately I've been buys with my summer job and neglected writing. I know that any type of job I do most important is to enjoy it. Everything else is just a bonus. I am happy with what I do and feel appreciated when I read such good comments. Thank you very much for commenting and best of luck in your writing adventures.
