Hubpages Q&A answer

This hub is an answer to the question asked by Rajan Jolly, on 2-18-2012

Why I love writing for Hubpages?

  • Hubpages gets the job done for us writers when it comes to drawing a good crowd, but you must be determined to succeed in a big way here, you must also work hard at communicating effectively with your fellow hubbers or guests with insightful commenting, positive feedback, and especially if you're thinking about trying to earn a respectable affiliate passive income.
  • There's a strong human presence on hubpages to help its writers as well, they're known as the Hubpages staff, they help us all in our efforts with hub moderation, tracking of the top performers, rewarding members for achievements worthy of praise, plus contest judging, and this makes Hubpages the #1 network for online writers worldwide.

The Benefits of Being a Hubpages Writer

Achieving the connections of close to 700 fans, and gaining massive exposure to the worldwide web, for the written works I'm responsible for publishing, are just a few benefits of being a Hub writer to say the least.

Sharing and meeting many people I never ever met in my life is truly priceless today, and thanks to hubpages I have interacted with so many people in such a short period of time, & thanks to this cool site I may now have the potential to succeed digitally today.

This is why this writers network is by far the best one ever in my honest opinion, because its fair to us writers in show casing our works, providing many methods for sharing our useful info, and giving us the means to earn a passive income that makes sense, and isn't filled with gimmicks, and strings attached.

Live Hubtivity action its Fantastic

Great Hubpages books

Area's of Hubpages I enjoy most especially the Q&A Area

Using the the Q&A was one of the coolest features I found at first, besides the reading of many peoples hubs, and commenting.

I also located the forum area, but I figured since many users have no clue who I am, I decided to first get into hub writing before using any forums. I did this mostly because I felt I didn't have enough working knowledge of the hubpages system back than, to even think of what to write about at the time 6 months ago.

Even till this day, I haven't truly learned how to grasp hold of that cool forum feature, but in any event it should become worth the time to get into it all. Some day I'll learn to do the same in the forum area's as well, and without fear of violating any rules or regulations of the forum area, which I've heard is easily done judging by the high volume of many hubbers commenting about it all..

Feedback & Commenting

I especially like when people communicate with me, in the form of commenting, and I decided to return the favor on their hubs as well, its an awesome gesture to do so, and it helps us get to know one another as hubages writers, as well as become friends.


Community involvement on hubpages is paramount

Fan Following

I pretty much decide to follow certain folks I've met digitally, after noticing their activeness in the hubpages community as a whole, and not before, because I truly want to know more about whom I am dealing with digitally, I also done this to make my truest presence felt by all those whom I chose to communicate with on this digital platform here.

More Hidden Benefits

Last but not least there's an unseen benefit that I surely want to experience from the use of hubpages and being a dedicated member, is to attend this cool hubpages event in New York City, known as Hubcamp. This would be a chance of a lifetime to meet-up with many online writers such as myself, and get a more human level interaction, and I simply love the human type of networking thing on the ground as well, so I'm looking forward to attending the most current one in my area. (Powered by the Meet-Up Network)

Learning newer forms of communications today will help you to make real connections with people behind these computer screen

The art of being real will help you to break out from all the rest of the crowds, try using Google+ to communicate with folks on hubpages (G+ hangout's)

Hubpages accolades work wonders

Hubpages Accolades

If you check peoples accolades you can instantly see who's who on hubpages, and this helps for new hubpage authors to discover the most important users as well, as helps to motivate one another as we find our ways through the hubpages system.

When I first joined hubpages I was amazed to see all the activity that had already gone on here, and the ever so present accolades that let me know in much more detail, as to the current standings of each persons hubpages account profile I came in contact with in terms of their hubtivity, or overall activities here.

This was definitely a motivator for me to try, and gain such levels of notoriety, and exposure within the hubpages system via studying the true purpose of our accolades. So I studied all I could from the Hubpages Learning Center), as well as by reading many useful, and helpful hubs written by fellow hubbers here on every level imaginable.

One of the many things it takes to communicate effectively here at hubpages, surely involves being a kind, and giving individual in terms of proving great feedback, which makes for some pretty awesome sharing. So the truest benefits to us writers is all the effective communications to others worldwide.

Hubpages also helps us all reach out to the entire global online community of users seeking our useful content, and so our words become much more powerful when properly rendered with high quality, and care.

      I love the Q&A contest idea, but I need to keep publishing hubs as usual, and this isn't my best hub neither so I will play along until such a time comes to join the contest.

      I just love creating hubs to answer the questions there, so this won't be my only opportunity to do so, I'll have plenty of chances. Thanks for the insightful question, and for sharing with me @ Johnrr631992.
