    What does it mean when Hubpages says that work that is personal in nature is not allowed on HubPages? Most of my hubs are very personal in nature about I think people like reading them.

    There's a section on it here Sweetzara: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Mode … ow-Quality

    I think the deal is Hubpages is moving away from a blogging perspective (they didn't mind it once) and moving towards one centered around providing information to end-users.

    Basically it means writing things that people who wouldn't know you from a bar of soap would find valuable. What does that mean? Basically, if it's something that only your friends and family would find interesting or funny, it doesn't belong here.

    It's fine to use personal experiences as long as it's in a way that other people can relate to and help them with their own situation.

    Where does this leave short stories and works of fiction?

      Short stories and works of fiction have a category and are considered literature.

      If you have a personal story to tell it must also be informative or creative. You could also tell your personal story as a short story or creative writing in those categories.

      As QuestionMaster said your personal experiences must be helpful to others in some way or your hub will be flagged.
