Hubpages isn't for me.

    Sad to say, after three hours of being an excited hubpager, I've come to the realization that this isn't for me. I was looking for more of a writing corner than a magazine spread. Hubpages seems a bit difficult to manage via iPhone. I want something easy to update on the go and where I can write more of a diary scenario.  It was fun while it lasted. Please let me know if you have any recommendations for "blog spots."

      Hi Mari,

      Hubpages is definitely not a blog, and hubs that are considered purely personal are removed.

      I have no idea whether it works from an iphone, but tumblr would certainly be suitable for short daily updates. Alternatively, a blog on Blogger, which incidentally, you can easily monetise with Adsense and Amazon if you wish.

        Thanks. I will definitely look into blogger. Much help. Much appreciated.

    I have no issues running Hubpages on my phone. I simply save my hubs to a memo, e-mail them to myself and then submit them on the PC from my e-mail and i've never had a problem. Been doing that for over a year now. I'd recommend giving it another try. Perhaps engaging soem readers, writing hubs outside of your comfort zone to get some outside attention. All worth a try before simply shutting the doors on what could be a budding career. Good luck!

      I only do this on my computer.  However, people here are nice and by reading hubs I have learned scientific things and read poems.  Also learned about cooking and other thing.  It is a good place to learn about things you want to learn about.  Hope you stay  smile

        Does anyone use hubpages simply to read articles and not publish any? That might be something I can do... smile

          There's nothing to stop you reading as many hubs as you like and participating in the forums! smile

          You also are not bound to any specific timetable for writing. Thus, if after a few days, weeks, months or even years, you suddenly get the urge to produce a hub or two, you will be able to do so with no obstacles apart from getting to learn how a hub is set up.

    You could try Live Journal. It's purely a diary.

      Never heard of it but will definitely consider it. Thanks.

      Just curious...     Is Live Journal something that's mostly populated by kids, or is there a big mix of people on there?

        I was on it some years with lots of other people who are involved in Bookcrossing. Most of us are very definitely not kids. However, I left when I went through a tough time in my personal life. I did not want to go on endlessly about what was going on at home. That was when I moved to writing articles instead, which together with my translation work, helped to keep my mind off the bad stuff.

        There is a big mix of people,  I only write hubs that are in my mind at the time.  Not for money.  And most of the people here do give me good advice on the rules here.  I am still a bit new and need help.  So, staying is good  because people do help you.

        There is a mix. I have several friends of my age and older. To me, the median age seems more like 30s than teens. As least the people I follow are.

    Since you write from your iphone, try tumblr.  I think they're good for spontaneous, on-the-go type of things.  It's easy to load photos, video, etc.

    HubPages are not best viewed on iPhone; it is best used in computers however. By the way, HubPages is not a blog-like website where you are not to rant whatever way you like. Writers here write about articles that might edify, embolden, disseminate useful, lawful information, etc. You can Google for blogging platforms suitable for iPhone like Tumblr. I wish you best luck in writing!
