Just curious if anyone uses those sites.
I used to publish on writing.com in 1999 and, I suppose, if I had stayed, could have made something of it, but it didn't pay money in those days, and now it's grown big and I don't understand the system.
Wattpad I've noticed has also grown.
Hubpages is not a good place for fiction.
Those two sites focus on fiction.
I'm not familiar with those sites you mention, so I have not. I agree with you that HubPages is not a good place to public fiction, but flash fiction seems to do fairly well. I really enjoyed writing on HP until they started moving our articles to niche sites. Some, like LetterPile, do well, but there are some niches that mean instant death for a well-written article in which one has put much effort.
I'm trying to spread my writing to more places - so that everything is maximized.
I've now got a few books out which do earn me a small income each month. I noticed today that there has been a steady climb each month.
I also listened to a video by some guy who became a multimillionaire through selling books on Amazon. He worked out half of what I worked out, but I didn't get the other half until I listened to his video. (lurn.com).
So now I'm going to apply that on a new book to see if it works.
I'm currently battling on hubpages to get things onto niche sites. It seems I am either being ignored or my stuff is not suitable - despite my research.
I noticed that wattpad now has a section that pays for stories, but I wanted to know from those who are successful there if it's worth transferring my fictional stories there.
Thanks for responding.
I have spent a lot of time on Wattpad, so I'm familiar with the Wattpad Paid Stories Program. Whether your story is successful or not would depend on the genre and its appeal to the major population on the site- the teenagers.
If you are still unsure about it, I have written an article detailing the criteria needed to join the program.
Best of luck with your fiction!
Thank you. But it's now my third month on Medium, and I'm now earning more on Medium than on Hubpages. So I'm going to stuck with Medium.
I don't have it in me to pander to writers, and after looking at it for a while, it's definitely a matter of finding followers.
It was on Medium for a while as well, but my articles are now being curated, so it brings its own traffic.

I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories and poetry are not good, but they are not usually searchable or high market. I...
