If I were you, I would apply off a Blogger blog. Just make one and make a few posts and try to get a small amount of views. Don't need to be a popular page, just clean and in compliance with Google's standards. I say this because I believe Google have changed their policy so that you cannot apply for an Adsense account through a page like HubPages. One last bit of advice, always conform to Google Adsense's terms and conditions etc, don't risk it, they have an extremely high success rate in catching out fraud and false clicks etc. It's never worth it.
