Funny Topics On HubPages: Taking A Walk Down Memory Lane
It is time for a walk down memory lane. There have always been some funny topics to floating around on HubPages, but the humorous part is many of these topics have serious intentions. However, these just happen to be topics I find amusing because often there are statements made that start to sound like a spoof of the Twilight Zone.
Occasionally there are some interesting hubs on conspiracy theories, but am I the only one who thinks these can sometimes really just cross over to being amusing entertainment? Just like the tabloid that talked about Boy George getting married in the eighties, there are many conspiracy theories that are just way out there. Some of these theories are based upon youtube videos of events that took place twenty years ago, but the people are writing about these as if it just happened today. Some other conspiracy theories just make me chuckle because honestly my life is too precious and short to worry about every single what if. Conspiracy theories are just not my cup of tea.
Complaints Regarding Indian Picture Galleries
First off I must say I always take my own pictures and I strongly believe in doing this. I love my digital camera and think my pictures bring beauty to my hubs, but this is just me. If I cannot take a picture of it I will not have a picture, it is that simple for me. However, I think the uproar against the Indian picture galleries is a little over the top these days. Many people rile against these, and some of the biggest protesters admit to never having looked at one. Interestingly, a few of the people that are adamantly opposed to Indian picture galleries also have used pictures that they have not taken themselves and/or given credit to the sources. Personally I couldn't care less, but this is like the pot calling the kettle black?
Of course, I just find it all amusing because the people who really are riled up against the Indian picture galleries really should stop and consider it is not that big of a deal. Hubpages is here for serious writers to make a decent income, and the Indian gallery hubbers often are not even making a fraction of what these writers make. However, I will continue to chuckle over this brewing controversy regarding the Indian gallery hubbers because this topic has been rehashed almost as much as my dad has talked about the last piece of Marie Calendar's pie my mom ate back in 1973! However, honestly I could care less about either side because it is all very funny right now.
I Have Only Been On Hubpages For A Minute, But I Demand To Know Why I Am Not A Millionaire!
When I discovered Hubpages in 2006 I wrote two hubs and then forgot about it for a year. By the time I had came back I had allowed my hubs to garner some good traffic, so when I applied for Google Adsense I was approved within a couple of weeks. If you are brand new to the site do not panic if your account is not approved right on the spot, and take a breath if you have not become a millionaire before the end of the month. I do okay with Google AdSense, but I am keeping my day job because I only see this as extra money. Sure I love to write and would do it full time eventually, but at the present moment I rely on my day job for stability and secure income.
I Will Tell You What To Talk About In The Forum
There will usually be a newbie or a seasoned hubber that asks a perfectly reasonable question for someone who does not frequent the forum only to be immediately shot down. What is that about? Gee still not getting into certain forums, but I am sure some newbies would never want to come back. It just seems really mean and petty to jump all over someone because they had a question. In school they said there are no wrong questions and I truly believe that. If anyone ever has a question I will try my best to answer it here if you are afraid to in the forum. Overall the forum is mundane compared to some, but there are still a few that are really quick to tell others how they always do everything the best way. It is very humorous to read because it is all a little took vitriol and self important. However, I assume some people need that to make themselves feel better. I just think it is a little petty.
