Visiting Squidoo Makes Me Happy To Be a Hubber

    I just came across an article at the competitor site Squidoo while I was researching a question.  While the writing was fine, the layout and format provided by Squidoo was not very appealing.  Very heavy on ads; even more so than HubPages.  More commercial looking at Squidoo.  Despite the ups and downs at HubPages, I am happy to be a Hubber!  I like the new templates at HubPages, which I find very helpful when creating new high-quality Hubs.

    I prefer the Squidoo interface personally.

      I have to admit, I have never tried to publish on Squidoo.  I am just sharing my observations when I came across an article published on that site.

    I totally agree. I've tried Squidoo and never could quite get used to it, always preferred HP's user-friendly interface and look.

    I've gone back and forth with Squidoo. I like the new lenslets, product reviews and recipe modules. At one point I decided that was it with Squidoo. Lately, though, it seems as if a lot of the long-time writers are testing the waters again with "lenslets."

    I decided to try one, to see what happens. Last night I made a recipe lens about the apple crisp I made for dinner. It didn't take long to write. If nothing happens, no big deal, because it wasn't a huge time investment.

    I opened and closed two account son Squidoo because I found their process to be extremely tedious.
    The learning curve is too high for me...
    HP is much easier to use.  big_smile

    Squidoo has several layout forms and specific variations.  They have some new options that are extremely clean and streamlined, available only to users who are members of their in-house quality program.
