I Love HubPages
HubPages went down, for a short time today
It was a trying time, if I must say
At first I thought, it was only me
My computer, my wires, my ISP
And then I learned, after many a test
It wasn’t on my end, still I was depressed
I wanted to write, I wanted to read
I’ve never been filled, with so much greed
I needed my chance, to leave a comment
Answer a question, and then circumvent
Without HubPages, I felt so lost
How can I help, how much would it cost
I know it happens, to every great site
But why to HubPages, they do everything right
I guess this is something, I must put to rest
No site is perfect, though we have the best
Down for Maintenance
After attempting to log-in to HubPages this morning, I got an error message stating that the site was down for maintenance. I immediately got a bit nervous thinking what am I going to do if it takes some time for the site to come back up. What will I do with my day that makes me feel as if I have accomplished something? I know as a computer specialist that web servers sometimes go down. Often it is only for a few moments, other times it can take some time to get things running again. It all depends on the preparation for potential problems, and the extent of the problem. As I sat there thinking about what to do, I realized I don’t need HubPages to write, I just need it to publish my writing and for interaction with other great writers, of course. I can still write using a word processor or a pen and paper. So, I grabbed a pen and paper (heaven forbid) and began writing. The preceding poem is actually the second of two poems I wrote. The first was based on the feeling a soldier might have during battle, I may publish it at some point as well, but I really liked this one so here it is. I hope you (the reader) enjoy it, and find some sense of common ground with me the writer. If you do, I truly understand, and if you do not; well I guess you have other outlets for your creative energy. Until next time, have fun my friends; and never stop writing no matter what stands in your way.
