I have just sent the message to the hub people asking for my site to be closed.
I would like to take this chance to say thank you all for your advice, and in some cases friendship, over the past nine months.
Love and peace to all.
Luke Andrew Marr.
Why Andrew Marr? why do you want to close your account and leave?
i hope you reconsider. your hubs are really good! i had never read you before until i saw you were leaving.
goodbye, or have you already gone, you will be missed for sure
andrew took a short break while he waited for some days to pass.
Anyways, I hope you have places picked out to republish your work offline or on. I know I was impressed with your Villains hub, its a shame to just take such work out of the mix.
best of luck..I never understand the "unpublish" mentality though...walking away is one thing...
There are a few reasons why I am leaving:
Firstly, I need time away for personal development. I am/was one of the youngest people on the site and need to do a lot of thinking about my life. I need to figure a few things out like what/who I want to be.
Secondly, I found people just stopped reading my work. I had a few loyal fans but even they gave up on me after a while. I didn't see the point in staying if people were fanning me just because they wanted fans in return. The poetry market is tiny and getting smaller by the second.
Thirdly, all the forums seem to be about religion now. I remember the days when hubbers had something to say rather than just shove their religion in the faces of others: either to show off about how 'pious' they were or to try and disprove God.
Fourthly, I need to grow up. I needed to realise no one really wanted to read my work.
Fifthly, I needed to become more modest. I have chosen a life style I want and 'Hubpages' takes no place in that.
In the words of J.K. Huysmans - "As his contempt for mankind grew fiercer he realised the world was made up mostly of idiots and fools." Take that how you want really. A lot of people on the hub know what they're on about and are intelligent: however, all you need is for someone to misinterpret what you say or think they know about something they don't and the experience is wrecked for everyone.
Thanks for the support; but for me, the game is up.
You know you dont have to delete your account - just dont use it. You dont have to enter the forums... why dont you psychologically delete in your head but just dont come back. Its about keeping your options open.
I guess if closing your account is a ritual you feel you need to move on, then so be it - I wish you joy, love and happiness x
Take care and live life with good intentions. x
Best of luck on your future endeavors. Know that you're not the only one who has the above sentiments and it has nothing to do with age. Many people go through a life time without having anyone read their work, see their sculpture, watch their play,or hear their music. Keep writing and get yourself a thick skin because someone will always misinterpret your work and see what you write through their experience. What can you do? Nothing but move on.
Oh yeah, I forgot this happens -
The Hubpages staff take so long to delete your page.
Ah well, it's like the lethal injection. You know you're going to go. The only question is when...
I hope you've saved your work Luke - 50 hubs = 50,000 words. Don't just chuck them - you may regret that later on....
you are only young, i am so envious, wish i was...... I remember you coming on here and having to leave because you were too young. Maybe hub pages are not for you just at the moment, but please think about coming back from time to time, you do not even need to let us know it is you. New identities are great. I disagree about poetry, i believe people will start writing more. I aploogise, i have not read many of your hubs...... oops can you forgive me
It was nice knowing you Luke. Hope you change your mind, and either way - I wish you all the luck on your jorney.
Good fortune in whatever lies ahead...and with your writings...
I'm sorry you're leaving !Anyway we'll keep in touch in FB.
Good luck !!!!
I'll send you a message later !
Luke, I just placed you in the mens feature hub coming out tomorrow very early. You too are to be celebrated more than many and I hope you'll take a peak so you can see the group of people you deservingly are honored with.
Rats. I had the biggest crush on you too. Even if I could be your mother. rats.
Just be happy whatever that means. Nothing else matters. Just be happy my friend. Fly.
Oh yeah, I'm still here...
Typical hubpages efficiency...
Anyway, I'm off to bed now. Lyrics, if you feel like sending me a link to your hub then you can still contact me via my email.
Infact, if anyone wants to stay in touch then drop me a line.
I expect I'll be deleted in the morning.
Love and peace,
Y'all come back now, ya heah! Good luck with future endeavors!
Good luck in your ventures, Luke. Should you decide to return when things are better, we'll still be here.
So sorry to read your farewell Luke. Glad I got to read your writing and became your follower. Just want to wish you good luck - in everything .
Andrew this now makes twice saying good-bye. Why did you decide to go?
Sorry to hear that man, wish you the best of luck with your future ventures.
That was a pretty well written farewell speech for someone young
(although I am probably not much older!)

I have just been told that my main source of income will end next month so I need to find a new one and fast. I think I am going to have to figure out how to make regular money here as well which I still haven't been successful at.

I think it is time for me to look for pastures new - my earnings on Webanswers and Hubpages have been decimated - my WA traffic has gone down by a whopping 90% and my traffic on Hubpages is 33% down - it seems the penguin hates me as well! I cannot sustain this loss so have to go and work where I...
