Well Hubpages.com IS my choice for the number one place to write. There's no comparison, really. Oh don't get me wrong here - I write on other sites. I like those sites quite a lot too, but I like this site the best, and here is why:
I've got it down here. I know just how to arrange everything on a page I'm creating...EXACTLY how I want it to be. I think I've got all the rules figured out....finally, and I guess I'm out of the loop of moderator discontent - if such a group truly ever existed outside of my feeling slighted imagination.
With Hubpages....I truly LOVE the HP Ad program. It's not for everyone - but it seems to work well for me. I make payout here every month with it. I'm pretty certain that I'd not make as much if I were just running adsense ads...but I'd have to experiment with that to know for sure, and I might just do that sooner or later.
Guess what? Nobody but Hubpages.com gives you THAT KIND of option.
Ebay??? It's here. It's not on Info Barrel, it's not on blogger, and so far as I know - it's nowhere else either ...outside of having your own website, and in that instance, I just don't know. Don't care, ain't ready to mess with that kind of thing.
This site is optimized for you to sell amazon stuff, whether you know that or not. Amazon is a tough sale, but it's pretty rewarding, exciting, and some folks flat out clean up with it...Info Barrel, another site where I write....their amazon thing....it's like they don't even want you to sell amazon - the amazon stuff is...over to the side where you can't see it, and you can't arrange it how you want to so far as products are concerned anyway.
This site is the best site. I think I joined Whizzley or the whiz or whatever...but I'm not messing with it just yet. I've got goals here...and they are income goals, and traffic goals.
I'd write regardless...but making money with it, or the potential to do so - is what causes me to do the best that I can, and this is the best site to do it on.
Another thing: This place has a true COMMUNITY to it...you get to talk to/meet a ton of cool folks, and no matter who you are, you'll find loads of folks that are similar enough to you to become friends of yours, and friends can not be bought.
