HubPages is a great resource for showcasing your writingand you have an opportunity to earn money for your articles through AdSense, the eBay EPN Network (if you have an existing account) and Amazon. If this sounds like you, get started here.

To become aquainted with the world of online and internet marketing, get a reailty check and read this important hub about the truth of marketing

Hubcamps are formal/informal classes about writing hubs by Hubbersand these classes are operated by Hubpages staff, so being rather popular and yet currently only available to hubbers living in the US and the UK. So in leiu of such events and Hubcamps being primarily in the US, on the 17th February 2011, Jase, along with three other Melbournites attended the inaugaral Australian Hubmeet. With Hubmeets, it provides an opportunity for fellow hubbers living near each other to get together, share ideas, exchange information and skills and also to be social. Setup by Suzanne a fellow Melbourne hubber, read about it in a hub for writers in Melbourne, and see the official response from Hubpages HQ in their blog.
