Just joined this website. I am not sure what 'really' happens here. I am primarily a painter. Is there anything of that sort that goes around? Thanks.
Welcome to HubPages HP is a writing platform. You could use it to 'talk' about your art and the specific skills, tools, attitudes, business of the art world or, any other topic of your own interest. You then sign up for adsense and can earn a few cents when a visitor, visits a ad. You divide it 60/40 between you and HP which isn't too bad. Also, make a few dollars through Amazon, again, sign up and also with Ebay. HP does test runs with other advertisers before bringing it to us but they do work on helping us too. Promotion is your responsibility. Tweet, Pin, Facebook, etc., to generate 'traffic' to your HP site. Read the Learning Center, FAQ for further information, located at the bottom of this screen one last note, visit other Hubs to see how they're set up so you can find your own 'presentation' style that you may like.
Overall, this is a friendly place and there are many supportive people.
However, be prepared for unpleasantness if you decide to participate in the religious and political forums!
Antagonisms occasionally arise elsewhere, usually linked to specific persons. The easiest thing is to ignore a thread in which this is starting to occur.
HP for the most part, is indeed, a wonderful community but as in real life, there will always be one or a few, who rubs us the wrong way. I think it would probably be best to just chatter with the one's you're most comfortable to be around with, like ME teasing, teasing. Take a tour through the site. Click on one of the avatar's and it will take you to their site. Look around, read, enjoy. You may get inspired
It's a place to explore your skills. It's a place to find a writer inside you... It's a knowledge well where you could go deep down the well to obtain it. You could follow people to keep up with their updates and what they write..
You could ask questions, write Hubs, create forums for discussions, win accolades, interact with people, make new friends, and earn some bucks too....
Go to Hub Pages learning center for more info. - http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents
Some people do get banned from the forums for anything from a day to several months. The length of ban tends to increase with subsequent bans. Eventually, some of these people get banned from the site. However, a number of these choose to keep creating new accounts with new emails so as to keep trolling on the forums.
Click on profiles of people who interest you and look at their hubs. You'll probably get a better selection that way.
But yes, I agree, a lot of junk does get placed on here as well. If you come across hubs that do not meet the criteria specified in the Learning Centre, you can flag them for moderation. If a moderator hten agrees with your assessment, those hubs will be unpublished.
hi grandys, welcome to the great world of hubpages. Through Hubpages, you can get a good income if you can write good, useful hubs. It is an authentic site. Just go through the learning center. Thanks
Hey lifetips123! Thanks friend. This place is strange. See yourself the welcome I got. Thank God I have discovered too early the reality of this website. Otherwise I might have wasted my time and effort.
Because some people are asking me some questions.
Too bad you were waiting for someone without letting him know.
Did I hear someone talking to himself, trying to hear his echo? Too sad!
