i just joined today and i was hoping to be able to post creative and fun posts. it seems like hubpages is geared towards "how to" and informative blogs. am i getting the right impression?
No, we have product reviews, stories, anything you can develop almost. Just make sure its high quality and it's basically acceptable. Just don't post anything you didn't create. Also don't copy other hubs-its bad. But yes, everything is allowed. From tips, to lists, to poems, to stories, to guides and how to's. Make sure your content doesn't break Hubpages Rules and Happy Hubbing.
Welcome to Hubpages BTW!!!
Hope this helps,
Note: Hubpages isn't a blogging site, you make articles we like to call "Hubs"
And thanks from me, thranax (even though I didn't ask the question). I've just joined and have made one hub, but I need to do a lot more delving to see what I can really do with this.
I've found HubPages a wonderful place to be creative. Welcome!
I've written everything from things about my garden to the impeachment of Bush..lol...
I don't think of it as a blogging kind of site; though some do. I think HubPages offers an attractive way to promote your material, regardless of what "type" it may be considered.
Good luck to you and welcome!!!
You can write just about anything you want. But HP is not a blogging site. It's a place to share information, but you can truly share info on tons of subjects. If you like the subject, you can make it interesting. I mean look at DJ he has tons of fun, informative, and interesting hubs about music and movies.
You can write an opinion hub, of course try to base it on "some" facts, but it's really up to you. But in generaly, HP really isn't a blogging website.

What sites exist that are free to use, that allow writers to create any content (like HP), where you can make money?

Write a Hub that is outside your comfort zone in 2015. (If you normally write informative articles, try a short story or poem. If you're a creative writer, consider a tutorial or explanation Hub.)This above sentence was...

I constantly see people who threaten to leave HP because they don't like the limitations here. Unless you are a professional writer who does this for a living, I think you should be careful about doing this and...
