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 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.
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.

An interesting take on the demise of Squidoo. Some spot on, some misses the mark, lots left unsaid - but then it is an external perspective<link snipped>So what bits would you underline - and which bits were missed out or glossed over?Or would you rather comment after the final payout has...

I was sitting pretty at a 95 for a while. I really liked that number. Suddenly it jumped to 97.Call me crazy but I like that it went higher - kind of - sort of - but you see... Now I want to KEEP it.I'm kind of possessive that way. I see a bunch of people with 100 hubber...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...

What do you think? Cagsil was one of the first people who welcomed me to hubpages. He's been on the forums it seems forever, constantly assisiting newbies and people in general with technical difficulties, and has been ....a war force in the r&b forums: just stating his beliefs or none there...

I'm very timid when it comes to change if the change is not one of my own choosing, even if it is good change. Moving to HubPages was an upsetting experience for me, mainly because I felt the place we moved from would find a way to mess it up or that HP would treat us like illegal aliens.Only...
