I found the reason so many people are coming in here writing short "blogs"- hubs!
Found in google search for "Free blogs".

i find sometimes it can be an easy way to get the creative juices going. Every writing teacher will tell you that you should write to get the writing juices going, even if you're just going to write over and over "I don't know what to write, I don't know what to write, I don't know what to write..." Perhaps some people don't feel it's worth to write just for themselves and want to post it. For some, like myself, writing is a journey, and Hubpages so far has been the record book of the evolution of my writing, that is, the one that every one gets to see. Perhaps blogging is part of sharing the journey for some as well.
There is also that blogging can add a personal touch to an informational article. For example, I had a series on the go which technically could have counted as a blog, but was about the journey I was preparing for. In the blog I wrote informational things about the place I was going to, what we could expect, and documented uncalculated obstacles. Sort of like writing traveling literature - it's entertaining because there is a person living it and behind it, but the reader learns tips and facts along the way.
I have never been able to write a continuous blog. The closest I've come was when I was 12-15, way back in the day before blogs, I wrote on OpenDiary.com. I had over 1,000 entries. Most of it was middle school dribble, but it was still an ongoing what-would-now-be-classified-blog.
It's not my thing, but I can understand it.
The point is that Hubs are not meant to be personal blogs.

I am always surprised that guest blogging is never discussed on HubPages. We all know it's important to have backlinks pointing to our Hubs and websites. We also know that Google is working hard to detect and devalue links which are artificially created - things like directory...

Ok, I'm not sure if the title makes much sense. But, anyway...I'm curious if you guys post links to hubs that you found interesting on your blogs?I know that I do, but do you?Maybe if hubbers were aware that other hubbers do post links to hubs (other than their own) on their blogs, it may inspire...

What sites exist that are free to use, that allow writers to create any content (like HP), where you can make money?

I know, we should write for both and I do, but the majority of my traffic comes from social media and lately I've stopped honestly caring about trying to figure out what Google wants. My highest ranking hubs for example do exceptionally well on Pinterest, FB etc. and get little to no Google...

I have at least 5 referral trackers for those who wish to sign up.I have a total of 25 sign ups. This is good. However, those who have signed up are not blogging, or there is no traffic. Are these people ghosts?What is the sense of having these trackers, and someone signs up and doesn't participate...

Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but felt compelled to answer it anyway.It's not just answers. More than half of the...
