    Excuse me while I go and write  another hub about how to  pour Cherios  properly , No wait ! How  to make the best Taco pie in the world ,  Oh No !  How about  how to properly use nail clippers ! Ya ?  -No....well lets see ....that's about all I got !  I've noticed something though , How unpopular writing poetry and short stories is getting  here on Hubs . In about three years I've published around eight hundred .....800 hubs and I have about fifty  or so featured ones. !  I guess its time I just realized  that I'm not a good writer according to hubs !  Any good  ideas folks ? Like maybe a real  place to attempt writing !

      Lol! My friend Ed, I hear you very well and even though I have a diploma on public relations and marketing, I'm still not that good in selling my poetry and not expecting that my writings here will pay my mortgage as well. Nevertheless, I will continue to write and freely express myself just because I'm enjoying it--with or without ADs.  And, HP is simply a good avenue to do that. Besides, I wouldn't have known you - a great poet,  if not for HP.  Smile Ed...sending you some love from the sky.

      Hubs on how to do something do much better than poetry hubs.... sad that this is true. There are a lot of talented poets with meaningful works on the site and they are underappreciated.

      Kathrynn , I know that I never expected to make any money here , I never signed up for that  anyway , but , it kinda irritates me to have hubs mark me as "substandard" anything !  I still love writing though  ....and you ! As all my friends here !

        Hi
        I too never even tried to make any money.... but it is irritating when people less creative and original judge our stuff.....but as you say,we find good friends and can read very good poems and essays...There are some really first class people and they are sometimes marked sub standard!I was shocked the first time but now I don't give a monkeys.,Even my art is original.I just like to share it,.Kathryn

      Many people that view hubs probably don't even look at ads, let alone click on them. That's why I am glad that HubPages has the Ad Program that is based on ad impressions and not clicks.

    Why do you assume the people involved are less creative and/or original than you?
    They are applying a performance standard that has to do with making money, that is all.

      They probably are very creative and clever.I just think it's nasty labeling my work sub standard  when it's been highly rated by many people.but as I said,I don't give a monkey's now!I think Hub pages keep more of the money but it's a good site,nice layout,Some very bright people here.smile

    I agree with you Ed however I'm still keeping HubPages as my home for now. However I do have two blogs which I'm building up more and more. One of them is a poetry blog so eventually I may just move over to my blogs.

      I started a blog just for posting my poetry, lyrics and fiction writing... Since it's a Google blog I can have ads on it, which I've done... so can potentially make money but doubt that will work much.

      Poetry and fiction lovers probably don't care about ads or clicking on them...

        Well,i don't.If I want to buy something I look directly at the shops that sell them.And people who read my illustrated poetry probably don't want ads on
