How Did You Hear About HubPages?
What prompted me to write this article was the question how did you hear about HubPages. It seems like a simple enough question and I was just wandering what others might have to say about it. I know I found it through a random series of events that eventually landed me here. It all began with a simple Google search of "how to make money online". I was honestly just messing around; I didn't actually expect to find any real answer to my question. It was some time ago and I'm not sure exactly how I eventually weeded through all of the results to actually land here on HubPages, but I know I found it; seemingly through a chance encounter that could have turned out a thousand different ways. However it came to be, I wound up here and decided to sing up and create an account.
Not another Money Making Scam
I thought it would be like so many other so called money making scams that wouldn't lead to anything more than an Email box full of spam with empty promises that would never be fulfilled. With that frame of mind I really didn't even give it a chance at first, not to mention that I was really too busy to devote any real time to it. So my account sat there doing nothing for over a year, and I had all but forgotten about even creating it. The days passed by like a fighter jet passing over head just about to break the sound barrier, and my account was at a complete stand still. How could it do any thing else, I hadn’t even read my first article, let alone publishing anything. I hadn’t asked any question or answered any, I had not yet participated in any forums, and quite frankly no one knew I was even here. So my account sat there doing exactly what I was doing with it; nothing. I hadn’t even given it a second thought, and it was quite obvious that without my participation it was never going to bring me any income or satisfaction what so ever. I’m not saying that there aren’t lots of scams out there, but nothing comes without a little work and dedication. If you want to make money online it takes a lot more than just creating the account and forgetting about it. You don’t get a job and just start collecting paychecks because you were hired, you have to work. The paychecks don’t just keep coming in because you worked a few days either, you have to keep on working.
Making Money with HubPages
Making money online with HubPages is a bit different than a job. It takes some real time and dedication and the paychecks don’t just start rolling in; it takes some time. The beauty is; once you get a nice following and have articles that lots of people are reading you can sit back and relax a little. You can’t just forget about it all together, but you can take a day off here and there and not worry so much about it. I might point out that I am not speaking from experience, because I haven’t really started making any measurable amounts of money. I’m stating that nothing is free and easy, at least not in my experience. Honestly I’m about a million miles from where I was originally headed with this Hub, but I figured I’d throw out some ideas and information about making money online since that was a part of the title. There are hundreds of Hubs floating around written by much more knowledgeable people on this subject than myself; if you feel the need you might check some of them out.
Back to My Original Point
My original point was that I had found HubPages and with no Great Expectations (not to be confused with the Charles Dickens novel) and had all but forgotten about it. One day in the distant future I was doing some research, while attempting to promote one of my websites, I stumbled upon an article here on the Hub with some great information about SEO techniques. After reading it I decided to create an account, only to realize that I already had one registered with my email. I was a bit surprised as I had completely forgotten about creating it. I had to go through the password retrieval process and eventually logged in and at last discovered the joy that is HubPages. I have since enjoyed reading many articles and learned much about various subjects and the people who so generously shared their knowledge. I have asked and answered questions, and even participated in a few of the forums. I have also written a few articles of my own, while they haven’t been hugely successful; they have been read and hopefully enjoyed by quite a few individuals. Which by the way leads me to my final point or rather question; how did you hear about HubPages? Please leave a comment and let the rest of us know what brought you here. The overall reason I decided to write this Hub was to ask that very question. I am just curious and being an average red blooded American I assume that many others might like to know as well. I was always taught that you shouldn’t assume because it makes an (ASS of U n ME) but in this case I have decided to take the chance.
