You are all welcome to my hubs
Let me welcome you to my hubs
Welcome to our first hub (1), WELCOME TO MY HUBS
Dear readers, let me introduce myself and welcome you to my hubs. My name is Frank Menchise; and here I am writing my first article, in Hub Pages. So, I would like to welcome you to read my articles, which for a start will be about my life story.
I am welcoming you, since those who are going to read my articles are going to be my friends, so, I would like that they feel welcome. You see, I feel that I have already a bond with you, and that is the reason why I am welcoming you to my Hub Pages; since I would like to have many followers.
Now that I have welcomed you to read my articles; let me tell you who I am and where I come from, my full name is Francesco Menchise and I was born in Genzano di Lucania, for those that don’t know where Genzano di Lucania is, I will tell you it is in Southern Italy.
Now, that I have introduced myself, let us state what articles we are going to write in Hub Pages: in a way all articles put together are going to be the story of my life and what I have learned from it, so, even though today I am in Australia and writing these articles in English, I am going to start the story of my life from where I was born; therefore, we are going to take you on a journey to my native town of Genzano di Lucania, where I was born and spent my young life, and what I did when I was young; then we will talk about my emigrating to Australia and what I did for a living in Australia, and then the most important things that I have done in my life, so, in a way it is going to be the story of my life from beginning to the present days; I hope I can write it clear enough for my readers to understand easily. You might say why I want to write the story of my life? Well I don’t really know, but today everybody has a story to tell, so, I want to tell you my own life story.
Therefore, I hope that I can write interesting things, while I am telling you my life story; but I want to warn you, that my life story can be boring, because there are very few happy events, in my life. Anyhow, you are welcome to read and enjoy anything that you find in my hubs, and you are invited to comment on them. So, do not be shy let me hear what you would like to see written in my life story, in the hope that I can make them more interesting for you. You see, I believe that it is the duty of any man that wants to write something to do his best for the readers, apart from the fact that I believe that it is the duty of any human being to write issues for the benefit of humankind. Anyhow, in my next article called, ‘an old man life story’, I am going to write about, “The duty of any man”, so that you can see what I mean; at this point of time, you might be asking yourselves, why I am writing these articles in Hub Pages.
Welcome I am learning to write hubs

Why I am writing articles in Hub Pages
To tell you the truth, there are a few reasons why I am writing these articles today. You see, I am not sure whether wanting to write has been dormant within me and now I have become aware of this desire to write in my old age; I suppose I am just like everybody else and I would like to write my own life story; or it may be because of the many things that I have learned during my life, and for this reason, today I wonder what I could do with all those things that I have learned during my life, because I feel that my accumulated knowledge will be wasted, if I don’t use it anymore.
So, I have decided to do something about it because, not only it gives me the chance to tell my own life story, but also because we should try to remember what we have learned and pass it on to the next generation if possible, therefore, I am going to write my life experiences down for myself and my readers, as it may turn out to be useful one day. Now what I have said is one reason why I am writing in hub pages, but there are other reasons or excuse as well.
But before I explain that, let me say something else, I have to say that I am not a real writer and I am still learning how to write properly these articles in Hub Pages, so, let this learning begin and let me dream that I can write good articles for my readers, of course this being a writer, we can say that this is just a dream of mine, but let me dream, it is nice to dream something that you would like to do anyhow, and now let me explain the other reasons:
You see, I have a few friends and a cousin that are telling me all about their activities in Hub Pages, at this point of time they are writing about religions, which is an interesting subject to discuss and contribute, in the hope that you may say something useful for all humanity just like what I want to do here, of course there are all those religious beliefs and not beliefs to discuss and here is their first hubs, which I believe I have contributed, Reconciliation forum, and Religious reconciliation forum, of course these are their hubs even though I have discussed these religious issues with them many times. Anyhow I don’t want to go the same way, since they are already covering that; so, I have read a few hubs here and there, because I wanted to see how they were like and I believe that I can contribute something to this Hub Pages site, by writing my own articles about my life story, and perhaps be able to earn a few dollars if I am lucky, at least they tell you that it can be done.
I am saying this because I have in mind to write and publish several articles that will deal in general subjects; I will write about things that I have done during my life, like working in the building industry and my bricklaying trade, which some people might want to know a few things about it, not because they need to know what I have been doing during my life, but because they want to know how these building things are done, so, I will describe how these things are done, as a trade person would do it.
Anyhow, I want to tell you the story of my life, because I think that it could be interesting to know and compare my life happenings with somebody else, to see what we have done during our lives; you see, I am an old man now, and I find that the way that we are living today, is different from the ways life was when I was young, so, I feel that I want to tell the younger generation a story beginning with, when I was young. Perhaps here I must add this observation, that I am just like my older relatives who sometimes wanted to tell me their story starting with the words, when I was young.
Anyhow, I believe that today the difference in lifestyle could be interesting to know, so that, we can compare what improvement we have had in the last three quarters of the last century. Well this is just one way of seeing it, because I believe that there are many other ways to use the life story of an old man, which is indeed going to be the story of my own life, plus a few things borrowed from our previous generation. I know that these are old stories, and the younger generation live a different way today, but there might be something in my story that could interest the younger generation, you never know. Well I believe that my articles could highlight the difference, between the way that we live today and the way that we used to live in the past.
Some other general writing reasons
Now, I hope that I can interest my readers, with my life story articles and other things, therefore, at this very moment I hope that you the readers want to know a bit more about me and my life story, so, I am going to tell you this. In the beginning of this article, I said that some of my friends and one of my cousins are writing their hubs in Hub Pages, they have asked me to join them but I am not interested, as I believe that they want to use me to their advantage, so, I have decided to surprise them when they see my first Hub published here in Hub Pages. So, Hub Pages, my cousin and his friends here I come to surprise you; at least I hope it is a surprise, but I think that they have already guessed what I want to do.
Here I want also to tell you that I am also on Face book and I am contributing by writing some posts in blogger, one of these general blog is at this address; http://menfranco.blogspot.com I also follow and contribute in groups of public forum, so, I am not completely new to the internet activities of today.
Anyhow, I believe that when my friends see my first hub, they will think that I have gone crazy, just because they wanted me to help them, and now in a way I am competing with them; they will also be thinking that I am dreaming an impossible dream when they see my first article, and they will thing that I will not be able to fulfil what I am now promising you dear readers, that I am going to write some interesting hubs about my life and other things, so, I am saying to my friends that only time will tell if I am going to be able to do what I am promising to do in hub pages.
Anyhow, I believe that I will be able to do what I must do, because a man has got to do what a man has got to do? It is only a matter of making up your mind and then you try hard enough to succeed. I hope you understand me dear readers, since I believe that some of you may have been in a similar situation during your life.
Now that I have welcomed you and written my introduction about what I want to write in my Hub Pages articles; this opening hub comes to an end and all I have to do is to say to you dear readers what I will be writing in my next article; I think that it is only appropriate that I shall start telling you about the story of my life, including what I believe a man has got to do with his own life accumulated knowledge, since this may become the main theme in my Hub Pages articles, in the beginning, and then will see how we go, and decide if we must do something different, when it becomes necessary, like when we are reviewing our articles that we have written, and this is what I am going to write here under.
Reviewing our hubs
Dear readers, I want to point out that this last sub-article in this hub has been added, when I have reviewed my hubs, you see, while I was reviewing our hubs I have become aware that I have written some hubs already, so, we want you to check them out. You see, we have written about our life and our life struggles and people seem to think that it is worth reading, the hub My life my struggles, we have written a few hubs telling you about bricklaying, and anyone that is not a real bricklayer can find them helpful, DIY brickwork, this is one link, but there are several articles talking about D.I.Y. brickwork, readers are advised to look for anything about houses and building issues.
Anyhow, we are writing articles about our life and what we have learned from life, therefore, we hope that they can be helpful to our readers and that they enjoy reading them; or at least read them, so that they are in a better position to understand what is involved, when they are building or buying their apartment or house, you see, everybody wants to own their own house, because owning a house is very important, as it helps to live a less stressful life, I know that because I have gone through it myself. But, let us try to close this article here and find another excuse why I am writing my life story.
Because, I am writing the story of my life, I must say that I cannot stop wondering how most people tell the story of their lives, so, I have been checking on the internet where I found that there are several articles if we look for them on line, perhaps I have done that to encourage myself that I am doing the right thing, anyhow this is one of the links that I have found on the net.
This is just one link, but there are many more to be found. Anyhow I think that I have said enough in this first article, so, see you in our next article that we will call, an old man life story.
