Nine Reasons I Still Write for HubPages

I've had four birthdays as a hubber now, and It's been over two years since I last wrote about why HubPages is the perfect writing site for me. Since then a couple more good writing sites have sprung up that I have written for, but HubPages has not yet been usurped by any of them as my my favorite place to write. Here are ten reasons I like HubPages even better than I did last year.

  1. I can easily see how much I'm earning from my ads since I joined the HubPages ad program. As I see the dollars go up, I'm more motivated to get more hubs written so they will accumulate faster.
  2. HubPages is a site for writers who just want to write and get read and get feedback from other hubbers. There are no gimmicks -- no monsters, points, quests, and other distractions.
  3. I can write about any subject that interests me that is not illegal or immoral, but I can still write about what's fattening if I choose. I can find new ideas in the forums, questions to answer, and contests, but I never feel manipulated to write what headquarters wants written at the time.
  4. Other hubbers are kind enough to read my work and comment on it.
  5. If I have questions, there is a great learning center to help me. If I can't find an answer to my question in the resources provided on the site, I can ask a question in the questions section, or ask for help in the forums. So far I've found other hubbers very helpful.
  6. HubPages is one of the few writing sites, if not the only one, that lets us upload video directly without having to go through some other site first, such as YouTube. That means we can have our videos only on HubPages and that will be the only place to see them.
  7. HubPages has a variety of capsule types to help us make interesting hubs. If we need a map, we can include it. We can upload our own videos or embed them from other sites. We can display our photos in many different ways in the photo capsules. We can include quizzes and polls. Those writing about data can use table capsules. And those wanting to earn money can include ebay and Amazon capsules.
  8. HubPages allows us to correct or update our hubs whenever necessary.
  9. HubPages staff is always offering support in the background and thinking up new ideas to make us more successful and help us earn more.

I like this! I also wrote a hub about why I love HubPages! The community is great, which is a huge plus, but all the reasons you mention are great. Voted up, useful, interesting, and awesome. Sharing!

HubPages is a great community. I cannot imagine not visiting this site everyday. Enjoyed your hub and agree with everything you've written here. The thing I like most about HubPages is the fantastic community.

Hey WannaB, I too love Hubpages and it's a vast difference from when I just signed up. I didn't understand much of anything and I did everything wrong. I had no clue what to write and was overwhelmed by the very advanced writers on the site. My role model at the time was Patty Inglish and Chuck. I told myself I could do it and I did. I practised my writing and everything started to change for the better. My earnings went up, my traffic is great and I met a lot of friends.

Great hub, wannabwriter. I just couldn't choose a particular favourite. I'll just say all of the above.

Victoria, there is a lot to love about HubPages. It's no wonder so many people want to keep writing here.

Susan, it is hard for me to pick a favorite reason, but the community does draw me here almost every day now, if only to read and respond to what my friends have written.

Cardisa, that's great. The thing that held me back at first was my loyalty to another site that demanded most of my attention and I had goals I was trying to achieve there. When I finally did, I felt more free to write more at HubPages. I think it was only last November, though, that I jumped in with both feet. I did try to write 2-3 hubs a week or more during that November contest, and although I didn't win, it still paid off, and I did really start getting to know people better through it, as well.

JKenny, I considered adding "all of the above," but decided against it because I wanted to see if people could choose one thing that especially stood out. They all work together for me, too.

Love it. These are the same reasons I love HubPages...though I still haven't figured out the secret for making money! I am earning enough to buy a pack of gum though, and that makes it more than worth as, as chewing gum helps me think better! Thank you for sharing this post and encouraging those of us who are new that there are many reasons to keep writing and sharing! The community here is awesome.

These are great reasons, and I cannot choose one either. The money part is the biggest draw for me, but earning self confidence as a writer winds up an even bigger win!

i absolutely loved this hub. Not many people appreciate just everything that Hubpages has to offer for them. In this case, you mentioned a lot of the pros that come alone with writing for HP.

I'm glad you wrote this Hub!

EyesStraightAhead, I'm happy to know this encouraged you. Just stick with it and keep reading and commenting on what others write and you'll soon be able to go out to dinner -- or at least lunch -- with your earnings.

Millionaire Tips, I'm sure most of us have more than one reason we love HubPages. I expect more reasons accumulate the longer we are here.

Thank you Jessi. After reading your comment, I'm glad I wrote it, too. Thanks for stopping by.

I really enjoyed your hub, great reasons and ones I share with why I'm sticking with this site. After rededicating myself to writing, I've realized this is the platform to go with. Great work pointing out valid and thoughtful points for staying with hubpages. Voted up and interesting.

Olde Cashmere, thank you for stopping by to read this and leaving such a kind comment. I'm glad you have decided to stick with this site. Maybe we will both see much better earnings as time goes on.

I do love HP. The ability to instantly publish is a great gift. The people for the most part are indeed supportive and the staff incredible. I do write elsewhere for money but write for HP for money and love. Thank you for reminding me of that.

Thank so so much for providing such an excellent answer to my question that I asked.:) I too love writing for Hubpages, and I CAN totally agree with all your points that you have listed here. Hubpages IS the real deal when it comes to making money on the Internet, and Paul the CEO wants EACH Hubber to succeed in the game too. He is always providing us with MORE and MORE tools to get ahead of the pack. Thank you so much for sharing!

Hyphenbird, it's easy after a few years to take this great opportunity to publish for free, connect with an audience, and even make a few dollars over time, for granted. I'm so glad I've connected with you on HubPages.

I'd have to agree. I was just talking to a friend on Facebook about how much I love HubPages. She's already a member, but says she may come back and write some more hubs.
