Are you a huge fan of hubpages? Do you find you just can't stop writing hubs? Well if so, I want you to tell me, what would make you stop hubbing? It can be as outrageous or funny as you like. I'll start.
I'll stop hubbing when I am ahead of Hal Lacino in my number of hubs.
I'll stop hubbing when I can't find a computer or notebook or iphone or any internet device anywhere!
Well, I'd like to say, "..when heck freezes over," but I think the truth is when the enjoyment of writing Hubs is outweighed by the degree of "fed-up-ness" I reach with the junk that goes on with Internet BS-artists, scammers, sleeze-balls, and thieves. (I'm not far from it, either. )
I guess the condition would be named, "FUWJIBSSBAT Syndrome"; and, as with Hubs, themselves, some days are worse than others. I'm actually not having a bad day today; for now, I live to Hub another day.
When any one of the following four things happen:
1. I die
2. Hubpages dies
3. I win the lottery jackpot
4. My AdSense account ceases to exist
Ryankett-don't you think that winning a lottery would inspire an endless stream of hubs? I think I'd love that part!
If you want the one word answer then:
If you want a longer explanation, then:
I would be straight onto a round the world cruise, followed by some serious property investment. Managing my portfolio of investment properties from my various holiday homes would take up most of my time.
Then again, maybe just a few to gloat I wouldn't monetise anymore though, no more sales pages, no more google keyword tool... just a hole load of hubs about places I have seen, and properties that I own. In other words, I will probably use it to show off a little
I will stop hubbing when...
1. I earn so much money. I am too busy spending it.
2. When i cease to get lovely comments after my work.
3.When hubpages dies then i die.
A true-to-the-core Hubber will build a stockpile of unpublished Hubs with instructions, upon his death, that someone keep those Hubs a-comin'. Then, (you know where there's now "top hubbers," "best hubbers,", etc. etc. on here?) HubPages could have a whole new thing: "Dead Hubbers". It might be the first such thing on any writing site.... (but let's not talk about dying and dead right now. Let's talk about earning instead... )
very good idea, how is your earnins going Lisa
Yeah, most artists and writer's work increases in value after they die, it seems.
Well nothing could make me stop hubbing, but maybe a break...
I stopped hubbing when I got fed up of HP censorship and of the stupid forum posts.
Sounds like you just suck at life and gave up before you had even started.
Didn't know HP was Life ! Ha ha !
Why are you so mad at me?
Maybe you feel stupid posting but can't help yourself ?
I don't like it when people put this fantastic website down without first attempting to self-educate themselves. Your bad not mine.
It doesn't take a genius does it? Google AdSense has very stringent terms of service. Hubpages the business has to adhere to those terms of service. They naturally mirror the terms of service in their own policies, in order to protect their largest revenue stream.
You are not publishing because you are unhappy with compliance. If you are not willing to carefully choose your topics in order to adhere to the very simple terms of service, then that is your loss. Nobody really needs to hear your gripes.
It is not Hubpages that you are refusing to write for, it is in fact any website that chooses AdSense to monetise their pages. In other words, you are eliminating yourself from a $23bn market, not Hubpages.
I wonder how many of the 23 B, have you seen !
Instead of telling me to educate myself, why don't you spend a couple of minutes asking yourself what are you really doing here?. If you're for the poor amount of money you're gonna make...you're making my point! Ha !
PS: and of course I'm unhappy with compliance. I'm not a modern slave, mate !
How much money do I make?
How much money did I make on Saturday despite not logging into this place once? You tell me?
Thank you for making MY point.
The only point I see here is the one I'm going to write just now. You don't make sense. Who's the loser here? You, spending all this time answering my posts and writing for a couple of bucks, or me, with an amazing life and a lot of time to spare in wonderful things?
I don't know how much you won on Saturday, just as you don't know how my life is.
You sound like a schoolboy. I wonder how old you are.
And stop insulting. That I suck and I'm a loser is over the top. Should I report you ?
Whether to report me or not is your own decision Jules, your a big boy now and you can make your own decisions. Just as I am a big boy now and can face the consequences of my own actions. It is noted that you disagree with the policies of this site, and wish not to conform. I also note your hypocrisy, seeing as you now wish to report me for not (allegedly) conforming to the policies of this site. A conformist when it suits you? You will criticise the 14 person Hubpages team for not letting you get your own way, but then expect them to cover your back? Get writing then sunshine, moderators to pay for.
My life is pretty amazing right now too. A full time job, $1000 a month in residual income from Hubpages which grows at around 20% per month, an apartment that I own outright, a new pug puppy, a first class honours degree, and a fiance. I have no desire to argue with anybody about whether my life is better than theirs, all I know is that I wouldn't swap mine for the world.
But you appear to have seriously detracted from my original point, which is that you were being unfairly critical about Hubpages as a community with no appreciation of their own restrictions as a business. I hope that I have made that point.
The fact that you seem to make unfortunate assumptions about the earnings potential of Hubpages bears little relevance to that point, neither are your assumptions correct. I earn approximately $4000 a month less than the highest earner that I know of, and approximately $1000 per month more than those who run off and sulk after a few hubs because they cannot get their own way (you). I am 25 by the way, just in case you want to resort to ageism. I may report you for that though, subject to your permission.
"Whether to report me or not is your own decision Jules, your a big boy now and you can make your own decisions. Just as I am a big boy now and can face the consequences of my own actions.""
lol. Don't you know the meaning of the word' sarcasm'?
So me being a hypocrite....
And you're still insulting. Your lack of class is amazing ! Don't you know how to answer highly ?
MMMMM.....Not ! Ha ha ! Bye Chico !
You have a hubpage with 15 words in it Jules.
This is a writing site, and you managed 15 words. No wonder the site didn't take too kindly to you.
I understand now that this site was just not for you. Apologies for my suggestion that you failed at Hubpages, and enjoy your time posting photos from Google Images on Flixya.
Flixya will love you, I am sure, and they never seem too bothered by the AdSense TOS. Which suits you fine, since your highly monetised hubpages were never intended to make any money of course
Ha ha ha ! Now I know who flagged my hub! Can't care less. I only published it for fun. Now I deleted it. No big deal ! But your pettiness is incredible ! Cheers, mate !
Flagged your hub? I only just looked at your hub. In fact, I have never flagged a hub in my entire time on Hubpages. But I am not a single bit suprised that somebody has flagged one of your hubs, seeing as most of us wish for Hubpages to retain a certain degree of quality. In fact I didn't even know who you were prior to reading this thread. You are obviously a deeply confused individual, seeing as the hub which I refer to is still published http://hubpages.com/hub/cryselephantine
Go ahead, count the words, 15. I am not going to flag it, I couldn't care less. I am just pointing out that if you treat Hubpages like Photobucket then the likelyhood is that hard working hubbers will take offence.
In the time that we have spent on this hubpage I have published 4 hubs, the same amount that you have managed in 4 months, do you really think that I flounce around checking out all of those hubs looking for things to flag?
Give me a break 'mate'.
Oh well, your loss! - it does take some conscious selectivity here at HP to stay sane - or, give up and join the madness! I'm taking the latter route.
i shall stop stop hubbing when when the end comes of me the hubpage or the earth...
I'll stop hubbing when I finally get that phat book deal and have to spend more time writing, re-writing, editing, and everything one must do to keep ones editor, agent, and publisher happy. Wish me luck!
First of all, i love hubpages. But I'll stop when someone pays me more to write elsewhere. Pretty simple.
Which will be never, as the earning potential of hubpages is effectively uncapped?
Unless some crazy ripoff site offers 90% of impressions just to attract all the writers and then dies in a matter of months?
Wired magazine says our stuff is dead. They say the future is all interactive content.
So fine. We'll be the not quite dead writers and nobody will read us and Google won't bother to give us any ads.
Some wag made a Tweet that said something like
"The Internet is surprised to hear that Wired is still alive" :-)
I already know sites which offer 80%, but they don't get anywhere near the amount of Google love as Hubpages.
That is effectively what Hubpages has to offer, some seriously skilled SEO professionals at the top. This whole site is set up perfectly to attract and retain revenue producing traffic, which is why I love it so much.
It is well worth the 40%. I believe that this current Hubpages team are very quick to responde to external and internal change, and for that reason I have the confidence to believe that it will maintain its authority.
My only great concern is that they get bought out by the wrong people who make one or two key mistakes. I have seen that happen before, the biggest corps will even buy a site to kill it. I would hope that Mr Deeds and Mr Edmondson care far too much about this site to see it fall into the wrong hands.
I didn't make that up either, I do genuinely have that concern.
You wouldn't think it Pcunix, 127 hubpages in 2 months could safely be considered prolific...
"I'll stop hubbin' when they pry the keyboards out from my cold dead fingers...Ha!"
I think I will stop when the discourse on the forum threads turns away from a friendly sharing of ideas and good humor, to nasty and bitter feuds between right and left wingers, atheists and believers, and Obama supporters and his detractors.
(as if that would EVER happen)
TEOTEAWKI the end of the earth as we know it - there may be no more electricity, internet or hubpages - wahhhhhhhh!
I'll stop hubbing when I am no longer enjoying it, so that looks like a decade or so. Then I'll be 70, and my ole arthritis in my fingers may not let me type. By then we will probably just have to use our voice though!So I think I'll be around for a while.
This is SO much more an invigorating place to spend time than (ugh) facebook. (Which, by the way I quit after a few months.)People here are not forever airing their dirty laundry and posting the most REEEEE-DEEEEK-A-"LOUSE" status posts...soul train..........mess.
When BlondePoet stops being so entertaining in these forums!
