I AM WINNING! But seriously, I started off liking hubpages because of the easy layout. But I think I'm started to get somewhat addicted to the forums...
That it can twist facts so confidently.
ATTENTION: HubPages Success Stories Graphs are GONE
I like the clean, simple appearance of articles and the ease of the editor.
It's refreshing having a minimalist design so that our pages look professional rather than cluttered by screaming colors and bold themes that don't suit every kind of content. That is what drew me to Hubpages in the first place: I wanted to post educational articles where they wouldn't look silly.
Hubpages is a simple site to write for, with a helpful community, follow the easy to read guidelines and earn with original content, that shouldn't be a problem to abide by
So many things:
the ability to write about whatever I want, and have each article featured individually.
-the community aspect - hubs can be seen by the community as soon as I publish
-the professional guidelines, urging me to do better and better
-the guidance from the FAQ, learning center, and now the apprentice program
-the guidance and support from the community - learning stuff in the forums that I might have missed otherwise, and being able to read different opinions so I can make up my own mind
-getting to know the community and becoming virtual friends
I really like Hubpages (my only gripe is the negative sock puppets that won't go away!)
1. International community - I love the foreign voices/ insight.
2. Automatic Copyright to "you" the writer - not the case on many other publishing platforms (OPP)s.
3. We can use our own photos - also not the case on OPPs.
I like that I can write anything under the sun (and the moon) without actually having to choose a niche and without being pushed to write. I love the diversity of the community. With HP, I feel that my vulnerability is safe (somehow) compared to other social media sites. I'm just more comfortable expressing my thoughts and feelings here through my writings as against other sites. Most of all, I find HP friendly, fun, educational, inspirational and motivational.
Yeah. You can write whatever you like and the theme is awesome.
Thankyou so much CrisSp for answering.
Ditto! It's really refreshing not to be confined to a niche. Sure, you can specialize in SEO or gardening, but no one is going to blanche if you want to write an article about sports suddenly like they do on other sites.
That despite the numerous sock puppets there are still so many great writers who produce fascinating hubs and continue to help Hubpages succeed even through the adversity of Google's changes. With decent, honest and open debate these writers are helping Hubpages to weather the storm and are turning it into a quality article base rather than a content farm!
Its a platform that has given me the opportunity to do what i never dreamed i could. Me, an online writer, earning some, without much sweat? Wow.
Having the opportunity to reach out to the entire world in the comfort of my home.
Having a great community that is ALWAYS there to give you a "helping hand" whenever you need one.
Giving me something new to learn every single day about the intrigues of working online.
Need i go on?

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me mixed signals. I am told to write in a niche that I am passionate about with...

For the second time my poetry challenges have been flagged for content violations. I do not know why people are offended by something i tried to create to help fellow poets on HubPages, but HubPages has made it clear that my challenges are not appreciated. I will be posting my future...

What is the best way to get traffic on hubpages? Is it by the quality of your hubs or the frequency of your communication in the community? I've seen different articles that encouraged people to get noticed by being more social, claiming that that would increase interest and traffic; and then on...

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...
