Good Day qettoiwan
I absolutely gain benefits from HubPages! I fully endorse the remarks of Tulsitala Tom, whose answer I voted up. As for making money, I am equally in the dark. Just don't think about quitting your day job anytime soon.
But if you use HubPages as an opportunity to improve your writing and exchange in the free and fair exchange of ideas and information, you will find real fulfillment here. I love the feedback I get and the lively exchanges with other hubbers I occasionally find myself in, in the forums and even in the comment section of hubs.
I recently concluded a very spirited back and forth with a hubber, dawnM, who had done me the honor of 'following me.' I can't speak for her, but I am the better for it. I've always been a pretty fair writer but I've gotten a lot better since joining this web site. I'm slowly learning how to jazz up the presentation of my hubs with pictures -- and maybe I'll get a hang of that embedding video thing.
As you can probably tell from the length of my response, I find HubPages a lot of fun, and somewhat addicting!
