Does anyone have any experience with FanStory? I am curious about it.

    Has anyone tried this writing site or know anything positive or negative about it? I just read their terms and it seems as if the writer keeps their copyright to material submitted, but the site has the right to edit and distribute as they like.

    It requires a paid membership which can be offset by contests offered monthly or by doing reviews. The good news is that they seem to like stories or chapters of a story and even poetry. I see they have a HubPages profile and yet only one hub which seems to be an advert for their site.

    I'm curious. I'd like to know more about them before joining.
    Thank you.

    Here's a comparison between FanStory (which users have to pay for) and HubPages (which is free), as compared on Quantcast for the dates of Oct 3 - Nov 3, 2013:

    FS unique visits = 1,588
    HP unique visits = 28,249,782

    FS pageviews = 34,391
    HP pageviews = 51,544,504

    Why pay to post your content on a site that has almost no traffic and readership?  (Also note that FanStory is about six years older than HubPages too)

      A very convincing argument in favour of Hubpages!

        This is true, Rik. HubPages rocks. smile

      Hello Ms. Relache
      Those rankings certainly tell a tale as to their effectiveness. Thank you very much. I will not be exploring them further. It seemed like a good opportunity for a brief moment. Their ad came up when I was on Facebook this morning.
      Thanks so much for saving me the time, money and effort there.
