Those First Hub Nerves

Updated on January 13, 2011

This is just a short poem i sent in a few days after joining Hubpages. I had read through all the do's and don'ts about hubbing and things about affiliations and topics and giving and getting help and all other sorts of things, and i thought i 'd be as well sending something in than reading all the stuff about it. I just thought it won't be perfect but i can only learn from any mistakes and improve as i go on.

THOSE FIRST HUB NERVES

I thought i would have a go at writing

So i tried it on Hub Pages

I thought i would get it done right away

But it really took me ages

 

Whether it was the affiliates

Or was it thinking about my profile

I took longer than expected

It really was such a long while

 

I took my time getting around the site

There is such a lot to it

But the best way to learn i thought

Was just to go and do it.

 

So i wrote this little poem

To be part of this club

That's me gone and done it

Sent in my first Hub.

      Yeah, diving in is the best way to do it. There's so much to read around Hubpages; it's easy to get lost for hours. Glad you took the plunge, mate. Look forward to checking out more of your poems.

      what a lovely sweet poem, welcome to hub pages. I think we're almost the same age in hubville. I see you're scottish, love the scottish accent especially if it sounds like the original bond, Sean Connery. Thank you for reading my hubs and I enjoyed reading yours too.

      Good stuff Michael. I was nervous when I wrote my first few as well, but people like you make it easy to acclimate to the community.
