My husband opened his own hubpages account about 3 months ago (give or take). The only reason he opened it was because he would often times read my articles that I posted on Facebook. Without having an account he had to comment under a guest username. Therefore, he just opened account so he could sign in and read and comment. It wasn't until last week that he actually wrote anything. Then again, writing really isn't his thing. It is mine. So, I am just happy he tried it. He published 2 things and I wouldn't be surpised if that is all that he does!
