I am still relatively new in the practice of writing online (I just discovered InfoBarrel 2 weeks ago, and some reading in their forum led me to hubpages).
The two hubs I have submitted to hubpages are my 2nd and 3rd publications online respectively, having published my first "Nuclear Power - a Sure, Reliable, Near Renewable Energy, but Two Edged as a Killer Sword" on InfoBarrel on 18th April, 2011.
So far, I think it has gone well. What I may not be sure is what I need and what I don't. I think I need lots of survival tips from those (like you) who have been online a while.
