Do you use Blogs in addition to Hubpages?

    I joined Hubpages to learn how to earn additional income online in my spare time.  Now I am earning a little bit more each month.  I started to create Blogs in addition to using Hubpages.  How about you?  Does anyone Blog anymore?

      I'm so happy to hear people do actually blog still.  I feel it's a great way to generate a new URL to promote to the search engines.  It helps Hubbers like ourselves increase our traffic to our Hubs.  Thanks everyone.

      Thank you so much for posting a reply here at the Blog Forum.  I joined a couple of websites from your Hubs Profile and this week going to write many scoops.  Thank you for sharing.

    yes quite a few hubbers blog also, and backlink to their hubs from their blogs. i keep meaning to start up my blogs but am just too busy...but i know it's a wise thing to do.

  4. waynet profile image46
    waynetposted 6 years ago

    Yes, I've got 8 blogs I try to keep updated and 30 others I update when I can, they are quite useful to backlink to your hubpages if relevant to your topics that you write about.

    I generally like the blogging format, as they are usually easy to use and to write thoughts about projects and stuff.

    Yes - I have a blog (mentioned my profile page).

    I do a sort of daily zodiac horoscope blog, using tarot cards for each of the star signs...

    I chat a bit about what's going on in my life and link to my hubs and my other websites.

    I've been blogging for a few months, but only been on Hubpages for a couple of weeks!

      I do agree many people use Blogs for fun.  I use Blogs for commercial use.  I have Adsense, Kontera and Chitika ads all over my Blogs.  I'm happy I started this Forum about Blogs.  Many people still do use them.  Have a great day.

    Yes, I have one. Incredibly boring and no doubt refreshingly futile. Not monetized and even if I was daft enough to do so, I'm sure Google would shudder as it's bots passed over.

      mailxpressposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I use Blogger.com which have Adsense, Kontera and Chitika ads on all of my Blogs.
      Here is a tip.  In the edit section on the bottom right you will see a field to place Labels into it.  Labels are considered keywords.  Many of my blogs are listed in Google and other search engines.

    Yes I do use blogs in addition to hubpages and I find bloggers cool. Similar to hub pages you can make money online from blog, just need to have an adsense accout. Remember quality, fresh content will naturally bring visitors to your post.

      Fresh content is the key to creating new URLs/web addresses.  Good point.

    I have 3 blogs but they are about specific topics and focus, namely shipping, international transport.  Also the search engines pick them up and rank them higher sometimes than your own site.

    1. mailxpress profile image75
      mailxpressposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Yes, the search engines do pick up Blogs.  I use Blogger.com and do submit keywords to it.  In the edit section of Blogger.com you will see a field on the bottom right for you to put in Labels.  Blogger uses the word Labels for keywords.

    Yes i have a blog too.

    Blogger.com allows ads to be placed but what i find difficult is about the template. Many blogger.com template out there does not really have navigation tabs and not as professional looking template.

    Wordpress.com has nicer looking template yet they do not allow you to place ads unless you have your own domain and you link it to them.

      I've heard about Wordpress.  I should look into that.  Blogger.com in the beginning I didn't use it properly but now I know how to make a Blog look professional.  It does take time to learn like everything else.

    I have a few blogs as well. IMO it is critical to have a diversified online presence. Hubpages is great, but also having additional blogs really helps.

    1. mailxpress profile image75
      mailxpressposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Hi SCP,
      I created this topic about 4 months ago.  I check it out every now and then.
      I do agree having at least a couple of well thought out blogs which I use to connect all of my hubs, articles, posts and so on.  Once in a while I update it and over time I see the web address/URL indexed by search engines.  If a web address/URL stays on the web for a long period of time and it's updated occasionally over time it does get indexed.
      They do help.

    awirelessbusinessposted 6 years ago

    Sometimes since many places you can add your sites to for publicity only accept blogs. I do not care for the blog format where you have to scroll down forever to see the entire content. I prefer going page to page if there is lots of content. Too many blogs have been taken over by scammy, spammy marketers, so it soured me on the format I guess. There are many good ones out there and the format is easy for newbies to develop.

    1. mailxpress profile image75
      mailxpressposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I understand what you mean.  Some Blogs look so spammy.  It takes time to make a Blog look professional it also takes time to learn how to use each Blog program.

    Greetings Hub Family,

    I have several blogs, as I mention in my profile, though I find blogging can be time consuming to post regularly like you should.  One blog in particular, I'm trying to stay on top of more, because I get the majority of my Adsense revenue from it.  I also recently created another one surrounding link exchanges for writers, so I will definitely have to start monitoring that one closely.  I find blogging to be work, just like all the other writing I do online, but it is nice to have no constraints on how you do things.  However, no matter where else, and why else I write, I've discovered one thing: THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HUB!

    Well, I joined hubpages 2 days ago, and it seems fun.

    I have some blogs off course, but I am wondering if I'll be able to manage them all since I've just found out this new discovery website.

    I think that I am going to need some advice from you guys.

    Springboardposted 6 years ago

    I still have a blog, and I've still been writing on it, and actually just started using it to promote a couple of my hubs (as I read about in a hub here about using them to create a backlink).

    Still, I'm finding that HubPages is unique in that it allows a writer to go beyond what a typical blog allows one to. A hub is generally longer than a blog, and certainly I find a lot of creative writing here—which I will be doing some of here as well. I'm certainly having more fun hubbing than I ever had blogging, though that's not to say I won't do it anymore.

    We use Wordpress and Blogger for blogging.  I like both of them and in all honesty so does Google.

    Its a matter of keeping up with them, if you do continous posts you will get search engine juice which is really what we are after.

      I just learned about Flixya and I created an account.  I will definitely be uploading videos.  I wrote to Flixya to make sure that the videos I want to upload are not considered commercial.  I learned my lesson at YouTube.  People flag a lot when they feel your invading their territory.  Like having a billion people online is threatening.  Unbelievable.

      Hello chinweike,
      I'm a true believer with connecting all of your works together.  I create free blogs and websites and I always promote Hubpages and websites similar to Hubpages.  I make sure I have my personal affiliate link on all of my work.  I add to all of my work a little at a time.  Every week I look back and say I accomplished a lot.  It does not happen over night but it does happen.
      Have a great day and connect all of your hard work together.

      Yes, my main niche online is learning and teaching people how to earn revenue with all free resources.  The resources are out there.  On occasion I write about a different topic.  I find it hard to think outside of my box but every once in a while it happens.
      I look forward to your future blog.  I'm sure I will learn something from it.

    I have a couple of blogger blogs.  One of them is not specific enough to do well with AdSense, but the other has potential.  None has been monetized as of today.

    For use as a diary, they are unbeatable.  Particularly if you've got something new going on in your life (serious hobby, medical treatments, etc.) and you want to talk about your progress.  One blog I have is good for posting backlinks to my hubs.
