    Congratulations Bard of Ely on your hub score 100 !!! You so deserve it.

    I was looking into a how to make money online and the one I had looked at seemed to be a scam and so I was searching for a legitimate way and hubpages came up in one of the searches and once I found hubpages I knew I was home and stopped searching.

    I was lens-building at Squidoo when HubPages first launched their beta phase (summer of 2006) and emailed Paul Edmondson to get an invite so I could join.

        Seriously.  For example, there were no forums for the entire first year.

          that's amazing that it's grown so big in just a few short years.
          the quality of the writing here is what attracted my attention.
          we can learn so much from people such as yourself and I appreciate those who are so willing to help! I googled something today to find out the name of a restaurant and a hubpage article came up and gave me my answer! big_smile

    I was researching Suite101 to see if you could make money from writing for it ... and came across many positive articles about this site. This seemed to be a less restrictive writing site, so I came here instead. I wish I'd discovered this place a few years ago, though. I feel so behind.

    A great question, and I've found reading the answers here really interesting. I found it on an article I read about where you can publish your writing online (found squidoo the same way).

    I have no clue as to how I found HubPages.  What I do know is I wish I wasnt such a dam fool when I got my first account deleted 2 years ago because I was a stupid spammer.

    Oh sure back then I believed it was all Hubpages fault and then I wasted almost 2 years before I came back and started doing things properly.

    Just think if I would have hung around I could be famous, lol, ta right.

    An internet friend on another writer's site, Donna C. Smith, said she was going to try it... and I thought it sounded interesting a little over a year and a half ago. She's still here, so am I.
    I don't know how she found it.

    I first saw hubpages while building some easy backlinks on a new topic via Yahoo answers, one of the previous commenters had a link to a topic with almost the exact same title as mine.

    I followed the link and saw a completely terrible, broken english spammy crappy article, and this was my impression of hubpages.

    A few months later I was reviewing the 30dc course materials and read through the hubpages and squidoo portions.

    i was familiar with squidoo and was a fan of seth grodin for years already but was also aware of the big google slap.

    So I gave Hubpages a try..one of my first articles from my first week was featured for a couple of weeks and had a high 90's score, the traffic was great so my second first impression was excellent and i decided to work it into my network/system, and glad that i did
