Everyday Miracles

Becki Rizzuti

Joined 5 years ago from Indiana, USA. Last activity 18 hours ago.

Looking at my profile here on Hubpages three years later, I have to say that most of the hubs that I wrote in the beginning are now obsolete. I've improved so dramatically as a writer and have learned so much about writing online that I cannot fathom the reasons that I thought this was good writing so long ago.

Little bit by little bit I'm going through older hubs and either fixing them up or deleting them altogether. I've made so many improvements in so many areas in these three years that I am learning how to improve the way that I produce content across various platforms and am hoping to find the best way to take real advantage of the different ways that Hubpages, Squidoo, Wizzley and Zujava each work in order to produce content that helps me to earn a living.

I've set some personal goals for 2013 and plan to see them through by ensuring that I write regularly and steadily, pushing through any potential writer's block that I may encounter. 

2013 is going to be MY year! Please take a moment to follow if you're interested in the subjects that I write about!

Currently involved in the 14 in 14 challenge.
