Hello fellow hubbers !
Thank you so much for all your sincere answers on this page. I raised this question after a long session of browsing through hubs on various topics on hubpages. It really surprised me that this place has managed to pull so many people into it. Attracting people to create an account is one thing while retaining them for months and years is something really big. There are people who have written hundreds of hubs in here and have hundreds of followers too. This question suddenly popped up in my mind - What is so special about this place ?
I see a striking similarity is almost all of your answers.
* The main reason why people love hubpages seems to be the "Community" itself. Hubpages has managed to build a very strong community of friendly,informative people who love "Sharing" knowledge with each other.
* The second reason is obvioulsy the monetary benefit. Hubpages is far more rewarding for dedicated writers. Hats off to hubpages' Ad program (It excels Adsense)
* The next is the "platform". This place provides the best platform on the internet for publishing articles on anything. No one laughs at us for a clumsy article. We get great accolades for a good one. An amateur and a professional writes with the same level of confidence here. One need not be a great writer to start on hubpages. But, I am sure, there are more chances of becoming one easily if we continue to write more hubs. The interface is simple and neat excluding complex designs.
Overall, I am so happy to be here just like you all. So far, I haven't written much while I read a lot. Thinking I should probably invest more time into shooting more hubs in the coming days.
Thank you once again for all your answers.
