I am frustrated about the barriers to posting my blog entries here on HP and am considering quitting altogether. I do not have the problems encountered here on Google's Blogger or BlogSpot.
Here's my question, if I leave HP, can I take my postings with me, or do they own them? Will there be retribution because I asked this question, or will they let me go and continue breathing?
It is hard to breathe in this restrictive environment. I do not post anything profane or negatively motivated. I do not write just to put words on the screen. I have signed up to be rewarded monetarily and have not seen a penny.
The only reason left to stay here is receiving some exposure of my talents to earn a little money. Yet, every time I suggest that route, I am told I am promoting something. Why would anyone use this forum if they were not promoting something?
When I view other hubs, I find the same self-promotion and promotion for several other things so I am not clear the "standard" is applied evenly.
Perhaps you are under the mistaken impression that HubPages is a blogging platform? It isn't. Comparing it to Blogspot or Blogger is like comparing apples and oranges.
HubPages is a site for posting complete, stand-alone magazine-type articles.

I didn't answer your question. Sorry.
Your hubs are yours to do with what you wish.

I suppose with just a few keywords and a search friendly title. The image that pops in my head is of a store in an obscure spot that no one ever hears about. Word has to get out somehow. But can you do that without ever...
