      That is really awesome! Congratulations. I've been contacted in the past through Hubpages by two websites that wanted me to write for them. Just goes to show that you never know who is reading our hubs. Best wishes to you!

      Congratulations! Though I must admit I'm mystified by how they contacted you through Hubpages?  Whenever I have tried to contact another hubber directly through Hubpages it simply doesn't work... ever!

        Actually, I've been contacted via HP quite a few times. Maybe you have a bug?

    Congratulations - I love Hubpages for that. I have used my profile as a resume to get writing jobs, and I've been asked before to blog for people after they had read my hubs. It's surprising who reads them.

    Well done and good luck smile

    How exciting.  Is it a non-fiction book?  Can you tell us anything at all about it? 

    Are you "still up" from Tuesday night (like me), or did you get up super early Wednesday?

    1. habee profile image93
      habeeposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      I'm sorry, but I've been asked not to reveal anything about the book. I can say that it's nonfiction, however.

      I haven't gone to bed yet!

        A fellow Night Owl or a fluke (that you are up so late)?  Actually the medical community felt compelled to give us a diagnosis:  Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome.  I've been up until 3 and 4 lately, and rising about the crack of noon.

    Awesome! Congrats Habee! That sure is something to lift my low spirit now. My client told me today we have to take a break on me writing blogs for her. But we'll resume some time in the future. And I've been relying on that income for maybe 8 months already to pay for my necessities. Now I'm staring at a blank wall. I'm thinking of pursuing that Google Adsense already (after being rejected 3 times already)..but of course I knew why. Now I have to really put body, mind and soul on to my hubs to get noticed sooner..
    Thanks for sharing habee!

    I get offers to write for people.  Some are laughable, the rates offered; on average 2/3rds of those asking me to write for them become clients though, which is a good conversion rate.

    I think a lot of people assume I'm not "for hire" so don't think to ask.
