Where can I find instructions for opening a second HubPages account?

    I'd like to have a separate niche account on HubPages to contain pieces written in the persona of a character from a novel. I went to my dashboard to open up that separate account and start it off with Cap's recipe for Deconstructed Hollandaise Sauce in Reprise and discovered that I was not aware of which tab to click after what button to push.

    I entered quite a few silly things into the search function, such as "how to open a second account on HubPages" and, after about eleven fruitless tries inserting an assortment of variables, gave up. I could just keep searching but it'd likely be similar to the hunt for the missing television remote that ended in a linen cupboard three weeks later and by way of the fridge. There's no point in that sort of thing if it can be avoided. Someone out there in the world of kindly HubPages users surely knows this off the top of his or her head.

    Anyway, what is the URL of the bit in the FAQ that describes how to open a secondary account?

    Many thanks!

    You just open another account using another email address but otherwise just how you opened your first account.  The accounts are not connected, but you can use the same AdSense ID on both.

      Thank you. A different email will be good and should help me keep the information separate.

    You can have as many accounts as you like, but each will need a different E mail address to function correctly. Like already stated the Adsense ID on all of the accounts can be the same, this allows you to maximise your earnings potential, based on the number of clicks to all of your Hubs.

    However you can use different Adsense ID's too if for example you run a Hubpages account for a church or club that you belong to. This allows them to be paid for traffic to their Hubs independently of your earnings here.

    I hope that is clear for you.

      That makes it clear. It also gives me the idea to start an account for a charity I've been working with in addition to this one.

      The money aspects really aren't important with this secondary account, but it's good to know it can be fully functional without applying for a new Adsense account or anything. I just plan to use it as a way to pump myself up to plow into writing the third novel in a trilogy. It's written from a first-person perspective and I'm using a secondary character from the earlier two books, one I need to get to know a lot better before I try to write in his voice. Since I tend to get to know people by reading what they write, I figured I'd write things from my idea of his perspective until they sounded like something Cap would say before writing 100,000 words that are intended to sound like something Cap would say.

      Thanks for your input!
