Hub Pages is my Writing Home

Updated on April 13, 2014

HubPages is where it all began

I am so happy to be back on HubPages writing again. Certain situations in life caused me to pause my writing on Hubpages but I am so happy to be back. I feel like this is my writing home because this is where it all began for me four years ago. I can't believe how fast the years have flown by. So much has happened in my life since I joined hubpages and I can honestly say it's great to be back.

HubPages found by Accident

Four years ago I was looking online for a site to start a sewing blog. HubPages came up on the search engines and it seemed like a positive and encouraging community. So I joined and wrote my first hub. Before I knew it so many people commented on my hub. I thought wow, this really is a great place. This is a wonderful place for freelancers to start writing, they'll learn so much here, I know I have.

HubPages has an Amazing Community

HubPages has an amazing community of talented writers. The writers here are very positive, encouraging, helpful and full of life experiences we all can learn from. I love meeting and reading stories of people from all over the world. When I read their hubs, I feel like I'm right there with them. I don't get to travel as much as I would like to, reading hubs from so many wonderful people in various countries makes me feel like a world traveler. I am grateful to have the privilege of being a member of this wonder community of writers.

HubPages is a great place to improve your writing skills

If you have a desire to improve your writing skills, this is the place to be. Every time you write a new hub, you are improving your writing skills. One of the things I like about HubPages is that we have the freedom to choose our own topics to write about and we get to monetize our articles. We also have the ability to write when we want and how much to write. I can honestly not say enough good things about HubPages. I'm sure writers who've been here for years notice that ever new hub they write shows an improvement in their writing skills. So. if you're just starting here and don't feel like your writing skills are where you want them to be, don't worry, they'll improve over time.

HubPages is a great place to earn residual income

When I joined Hubpages, I applied for a google and amazon account and was approved for them in a short amount of time. It took a while to make those first few cents to come and when I did I was ecstatic. When I came back to HubPages, I was happy to see that my hubs were still making a little money even though I haven't been here for a while, what a blessing. I consider every cent I make here a blessing and don't take it for granted. I have a goal to substantially increase the amount of hubs I write this year and to improve the ones I've written over the past four years. If I had written one hub a day over the past four year, I would have over 1000 hubs, earning a good residual income. I don't know if I'll start writing one hub a day but I do know that I'll start slow with a goal of writing at least one hub a week for two weeks. Then I'll increase it by one more hub a week and so forth until I'm writing at least three to four hubs a week.

You'll Start Writing Faster on HubPages

The more you write, the faster and better your writing sills will get. If you know the basics of typing, you'll find that your typing speed will get faster as the words flow freely from your mind. I find the more I write, the longer my articles get. When I first started writing four years ago, I felt like a 500 word article was so long. Now I can write a 1000 word article faster than I ever thought I could. I've learned how to relax my mind and to allow my natural thoughts to guide my writing. Don't think about word count when your writing because that will block your thoughts. Only think about the subject your writing about and before you know it you'll have more words than you thought you would ever have.

Discover Your Niche

We all have our own special niche, whether it be sewing, soap making, carpentry or medicine. Write many hubs about your niche. If you have several niches write several hubs about each niche. This is a way to get more page views on HubPages especially if you link hubs of the same niche to each other. I have several hubs on various niches which I haven't finished yet. This year I have a goal to finish them all.

Hubpages helps you to discover your writing style

Every writer has their own unique style of writing. Our writing reflect our personality and demeanor. Never try to copy another person's style of writing, be yourself, honest and true. This way your writing will sound natural and will be enjoyable for others to read. Writing on HubPages helps you to find your style. The more you write, the better you will get at expressing yourself in your writing. I say thank you HubPages for helping me to develop my writing talent. I'm still learning and I still have a long way to go but I can honestly say I'm enjoying the writing ride and will keep writing. I've learned to love this art and the personal satisfaction it brought to my life. It will do the same for you too. Happy Writing to All!.

      I also found HP via a google search close to 4 years ago and what an amazing journey it's been! I don't have time to write as much as I used to, but I always pop in to say hello and support the fabulous friends I've made here :)

      Thank you very much RTalloni for your comments. There are many other writing sites out there but I feel HubPages is the best for earning residual income. And it's great to see your hubs earning a little money even when you're not writing. Happy writing to you too.

      My sister was the first to tell me about HP. It's been an interesting journey and I'm glad to have learned so much along the way. Though I still have questions about how some things work with writing online, I continue to enjoy improving my writing skills. I generally think of the HP experience as being one for people who like to learn and who like to write, but experiencing the community in a respectful manner is crucial to making the most of the opportunities. It is nice that when life calls we can take a break and come back to HP as needed. Happy writing in the coming weeks! :)

      Well I feel the same like you. Since I joined HubPages some two years back, it has become an integral part of my life. I have learnt a lot here and made many friends here. The community is very supportive. I discovered HP via Linkedin.

      Very nice hub, perhaps conveying the feelings of many hubbers.

      Thanks!
