Are how-to articles more popular on this site than say...creative writing or poetry?
The reason I ask is, I was considering starting a how-to on watercolors which is a passion of mine, but would love to have some comments on my creative and poetry writing as well.
Thanks for your help
Go for it. Those looking for information seem to appreciate anything written in a how to format. Something like 'How To Start Watercoloring' or 'How To Get Started With Watercolors' would be great. Even more so if you already have the knowledge - so much more enjoyable to write

To answer your question, yes, how-tos will get more traffic (and earn more money) than poetry or fiction.
I hadn't really considered making money here, I was looking more for critique. Thanks for your help, I will look into it.
How To's generally get more traffic, and are more easy to convert in to sales, than creative works and poetry. However,being more profitable, and being able to make a profit, are two different things entirely, you will defaintely want to do a little bit of research on sales and SEO if you decide you want to make some cash!

Has anyone heard anything about the future of poetry and fiction in terms of niches? I am a bit concerned that all us poets will get lost in the shuffle somewhere

Ok, maybe it's just me, but how articulate do you have to be to post pictures of half naked woman into a Hub, and call it creative writing?

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall,...

Whether you think that HubPages is- or is not- an appropriate venue for creative writing, it may be beneficial to designate a specific area for it, complete with all of the subheadings found within the non-fiction...
