This character was my Avatar. I spent about a year blogging with him. Hubpages is not the only place where I have contributed. There are others like Squidoo, blogger, wordpress and many more. It does not cost anything to set up a blog and write about things that interest you. However, it has become very difficult these days to make something successful, so you have to try your hand at almost everything. This also means that you probably have to write about topics that you are not interested in, simply to get the views. Just under a year ago I lost my main adsense account which was very old and at times I was making more than $100 /day. Since that time, I have kept blogging but am waiting and preparing for the day that something better than adsense will come along.
