I know. I know. So, yell at me. I’m a statistical anomaly: a writer who likes to promote my fellow writers and poets as much as myself. Call me weird. Really doesn’t matter. Basically, I’m “on a mission from God with a carton of cigarettes and a half tank of gas” in the car like in the old and funny movie The Blues Brothers. (OK, so I don’t smoke. Details, details…) Of great concern to me for many years is that my fellow Americans are tanking in the education department, especially in the areas of health, poetry, math and science. Don’t get me started on social skills. Another day.
The many blogs idea came from reading all kinds of goodies from my fellow writers on HubPages in particular. I wanted to share them on more than one social site or two and bookmark them into a meaningful place in their context other than a lame folder. The easy solution was to create blogs that fit the niches of my personal reading interest as well as educational for the general public.
Hopefully, other blogs like this will spring up, cataloging some damn good writing and interesting reading from fellow writers as well as the blogger’s writing. I’ve evolved my blogging into writing a short review/sales pitch, place a photo from my friends over at flickr that I also like to help promote, and give the link back to HubPages or their blog for the author. Every now and then I even blog my own work - which felt a bit weird at first but I got over it in time.
There are a lot of readers as well as writers on HubPages. I’m requesting you place some of what you run across as you read on the internet here. I’ve been sifting through a lot of blogs that is like kissing a lot of frogs before you find the prince. Your help would be greatly appreciated and English language too. (Apologies to my international friends but Americans are notoriously lacking in the department of learning second languages.)
Also, do you know of some good sites you think would be helpful too? Remember: I’m slanting these blogs for the general public to help introduce them gently into learning or re-learning about the various subjects. The idea is to excite their minds. Beginner and intermediate sites/blogs are the focus.
Here are the various areas of interest:
Spiritual (includes Western and Eastern mysticism)
Politics (not the ranters - people with more brains than visceral who give logical reasonable non-histrionic arguments for either side)
Math of all kinds
Thanks for your help everyone! And thanks, too, to those of you I’ve already used the Blog This button to link your hubs to my blogs. What a great feature!

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

Why do you write on hubpages rather than making your own blog?I have been thinking about making a blortal(blog portal). But I take back my step when I see the huge prices for getting a web host and then maintaining your own blog. Making your blog visible in the blog world, etc. etc.Why do you blog...

I started using this blogging link to send my own hubs out of the hub nest. Soon, as I was going to make comments for my friends list I ended up reading other good hubs and decided to share theirs on my blogs too. Then the blog idea started evolving to help promote more reads and...

So, quite recently some hubbers declared that they might venture out to create their independent, 100% 'all cash goes to the author's pocket' blogs using Blogger or WordPress. I just figured out, after checking some blogs on both those platforms, that they might face one little problem, it's...
