Admitting Addiction to HubPages
If we are honest with ourselves, we would admit that from time to time, we have gone through phases of adddiction to HubPages. In the beginning we were confused, like a tourist in a foreign place trying to understand the customs and the language. We stuck out like a sore thumb because we asked questions like, "What is a fanmail?", "What is Google Adsense?", or "What is the difference between an author score and a hubscore?".
As time went by, we became more accustomed to our surroundings and started to fit in. Then somewhere along the way, addiction kicked in. We started to make comments like, "Were you just listening to Keith Urban? That is like sunshine's favorite country singer!" (Your friends look at you like you have been abducted and brainwashed by Martians.) Trying to hold in the laughter you reply, "Oh yeah, sorry, that is someone I follow on HubPages". You know when you start conversing in HubPages language in the real world, that addiction has set in.
So, I have chosen to dedicate a Limerick to HubPages and I hope you enjoy!
Beginning is chaotic confusion
Capsules and fanmail what is their function
A few weeks have now passed
Answers received at last
Confusion is replaced with addiction
Addicted to this writing website,
Where you begin to read and then write
As you get on a roll
HubPages takes your soul
Nothing to do can try all your might
The example I used above regarding sunshine and her love for Keith Urban never did happen to me for real. It was just an example of how we can intertwine both HubPages and life together without even noticing it.
