Hub Pages used to be my playground. I wrote and submitted a few articles there. My address there is: imthenana.hubpages.com. I find it relaxing and enjoyable to express myself on paper. I just haven't had the time to do it recently.
Hub pages is a great place to write and submit your articles. Also, the hub as I call it, is a very informational site. You can find wonderful recipes, household hints and about anything one would need to know about, you can find it there.
Just thought I would add this interesting tidbit for those who are not familiar with hub.
