Let's hear your story on how you got in contact with hubge.
I was googling out something, can't remember what, and I got link to one of the hubs. Since I'm on a break I have time to waste and so I do it occasionally here, mostly on forums and not on hubs. After a few days it seems to me that there is quite a few people obsessed with their ratings and stats...
June 2007 at SquidU (Squidoo's forum). It, uh, took me a little while to sign up though.
Found it by accident when surfing the net. Decided to join to learn and share information.
It was a dark and stormy night. I was in the laboratory, working on my latest experiment, when I ran out of petri dishes, so I Googled and well the rest is history
I was just looking for a place to share my thoughts because I think things are such a ,mess. So I wanted to start a blog and ran Into Hubpages and have been here ever since
DonnaCSmith, a hubber living in NC who knows everything about horses, told me about it. I 'met' her on another writer's site and she helped me get started. She has published two historical novels for young people and three books on horses and mules. Look her up on HubPages.
I was on Yuwie and I met Sir Dent there and he mentioned to me about Hub Pages and how I could make money here. So I joined. I finally after 15 months got my first paycheck, but I like it weather I make money or not.
I really cant remember how I found it. I know my first attempt was a failure because I was one of those guys who insisted on writing spammy hubs with all kinds of links to the latest greatest work at home experience. Needles to say my first attempt was short lived.
My second attempt has been a much more rewarding experience. I am still a marketer but I do things differently now.
Cheers to HubPages
A friend of mine who hubs here has been bugging me to join for a while.
I kept putting it off until I was looking for a place to write about my love for wrestling. Well it turns out this is a great place to do that.
The rest is history
I found it while surfing. I'd been searching for way to make money online and eventually given up and started a blog with blogger.com and not long after that, I found hubpages but I can't remember where or how or what reference to it I read.
That was only 2 months ago <~short term memory loss!
I found it by chance.
all the things that happen in my life are by chance. And that's the way I like it to be .
My daughter who found HP by chance. And she is not a hubber.
I actually discovered Hubpages when I was searching for duplicate content stolen off some of my own websites. i reported teh user who stole my content (Who was subsequently banned) but as i researched this interest I grew interested.
The first time around I wrote a couple of Hubs, just for backlinks, until I came back to it earlier this year, and now I am earning around $1500 a month from it
I kmow nothing about hubpages before and I got no idea what hubpages are but I do join a few affiliate site with no positive results,I turn to writings to earn from adsence and start learning to blog ,that is the start I found hubpages interesting and start producing more hubs.
a advert for one of those make money online things, then I found my own way here!
I was following Marisa Wright at another site and she mentioned this one and I checked it out. I signed up but was busy with a few other things and didn't really get going here until Sept. '09. Thanks Marisa!
I was actually asked for my Hubpages profile by a guy who wanted to hire me as a freelance writer. I had one on ezine, but that got me thinking about the new site. I signed up for it right away, although I did not publish my first hub till almost three months later.
I can honestly thank my former flatmate and friend, as well as fellow hubber Bard of Ely
( http://hubpages.com/profile/Bard+of+Ely ) as he told me about this site, and I am eternally grateful to him for this as he had only just found it himself when he sent the email to me.
My friend who I already consider a brother Sir Rony also a Hubber before.
I found hubpages while looking for webhosting alternatives. I was looking for a host that would be the least expensive to set up a website with. I figure since hubpages is is free, plus offers a chance to get some needed income. I decided to join.
My main goal is to see how I am received. So far, it has been a good experience.
I found it while reading one of my favorite blogs (and no this is not me.)
I was taking an Internet marketing course that included regular teleconference sessions. As part of that, we students were introduced to YouTube, TubeMogul, MySpace, Facebook, Digg, Squidoo, HubPages, and a whole bunch of other sites. (Fifteen to twenty in all, if memory serves.)
Those teaching the program decided to have a "best writing" contest. You could submit just one online article, and it could be published on either HubPages or Squidoo. I entered one of my early Hubs--don't ask me which one now--and rubbed my hands with glee as I prepared to bask in the adulation of the judges.
To no one's surprise but my own, my entry made it to the top 100 or so...but was cut shortly thereafter. I was outraged! Could these fools not see they were in the presence of a superior author? Why, those they picked were mere junk compared to my exuisite literary sculpture!
Or something like that.
In the end, I never did quite complete the course. I'd been writing online full time for seven months, but the money ran out, and going back to work, hardcore 70 hour night shift work weeks driving big rigs and wrestling heavy hoses and tire chains in western Colorado's mountainous snow country was not exactly conducive to Hubbing much.
Oops. Done wrote another Hub and called it a Comment...again!
I found it by chance twice, but I did not sign up the first time. However, after the second time, I decided to join and the rest was history.
I first heard about HubPages when it was still in beta testing, mentioned by someone over at Squidoo. This was in the summer of 2006.
I wrote to the admin email and asked if I could have an invite to try the site and Paul Edmondson sent me one.
also squidoo, like this a lot better not being biased or anything, actually no comparison, that's just me
I had started a blog (pretty bad one too) and wanted to get traffic so went looking for how to get traffic to my blog. Found a hub about this site being a good way so signed up and wrote my first article. By the time I finished it I had been fanned (a serial fanner but I didn't know about them at the time). Was so excited to have a fan I wrote a second article, by the time I finished it I had 3 fans and several comments. I had had my blog for several months with no indication that any one had read it, here I had results in a matter of an hour or 2, so I was hooked! I don't remember who I signed up under but as I am seeing a trickle of income they must be seeing some too! To that person, who ever they are, thanks for the hub that got me here!
One of my friend told me about hubpages.Now i m using and sharing my thoughts and articles here.Hubpages is a great site to share things and getting good traffic from it.
No one introduced me to HubPages. I simply stumbled across it, found it to be a perfect platform, that works in correlation with my message.
Google search for something completely unrelated and it led me to one of pgrundy's hubs. So I ended up reading several and then signed up. I waited a few days before I gathered the courage to write something.
I was doing a jobfinder thing...and it came up under the part-time stuff...bizarre but I figured, what the hell?

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some...
