What are some tip/ pointers you would give new hubber that you have learned from your experience on Hubpages?
I realized that writing for google search is a different skill. It's fascinating that the computer medium requires certain things from a writer. Searchable titles, keywords, formats, it's all good.
I have just taken a great deal of time writing and publishing the first chapter of my book, its quality compared to some of my Hubs - well - I think that some of my Hubs were done without much thought - volume rather than quality - so the moral of the story would be write with quality in mind rather than quantity
Due to HP I've discovered many things, aspects about the internet and how it works, that I wouldn't have known otherwise.
The best advice I can offer to anyone is this: don't come here just to focus on making money or to write. Come here to learn.
HP has a wealth of information contained within the site. You are among some very talented people. Many of whom share their knowledge. Learn from them:
HP provides you with the tools ... it even comes with an instruction manual. Read it - and learn some more.
And welcome to HubPages
I would second this and add, read, read, read... and not only on the forums. Read all that hubpages has to offer on writing better and working the system (found under 'learning center', at the bottom of the page). Take the advice seriously, and make it work for you.
Don't be afraid to try new things. Don't get discouraged when the results you want don't come right away. I try to write from the heart, and not everything is going to have a huge impact. Some things are rarely searched for, but if they help only one or two people, then I think it is worth the time spent.
I have learned here at hubpages that I have alot to learn! lol
There are some fantastic writers here. I'm just trying to keep up.
There are so many experienced writers here on hub pages. They demonstrate what is possible and are generous in their advice. If you are adopted by some, who take an interest in your progress, it can take away the self doubt of writing on your own. Plus the forums are hilarious.

Maybe we can have a dinner party and express our experience on Hubpages and share advice?

1) Do not check your Google Adsense earnings every day or even once a week. Why? Because there won't be anything there and it could potentially be discouraging and cause you to stop writing for HubPages.2) Do your best...

I've had several people contact me through HP wanting to hire me to write for their websites. They've all been totally legit and paid me what they said they would. They stumbled upon my hubs and liked them. This is just...

may I ask why?With all the hassle just to get a piece published, from overtly strict copy right laws, now to this. I now wonder if the place is even worth the hassle.

This one might need a sticky when I'm done, as I think what I'm about to share could help many hubbers - new and old alike ...First off ... Where's all of the money? I hear this time and time again how some hubber wrote...

I am really not liking the front page of Hubpages these days. When I first click in to HP, I see a list of the five top questions and articles. It usually something about politics or beliefs. First of all, is that what...
