    I recently wrote a memoir about myself and a friends first trip to Times Square as a pair of truants. Because it does not have a "how to" or "about" theme I do not think the HubPages is the proper venue for it. Or is it? If not, can someone suggest another site? I feel it is one of the best little things I have produced so far. I also write observational humor and fiction and do not know where to take that either. Thanks for your help!
    I see I typed my most common mistake in the title and I can't correct it. Sorry!

      Thanks I will then. It is called "Fish Cakes and Spaghetti" and I think people will enjoy it as it is a true story. Out in a few minutes! It will be hard to drive traffic to unless the readers make it viral. It will be linked to my new blog also. Sorry I was just warned not to link my blog. Too many rules!! If I have a blog I want people to go there for their entertainment Yes there are ads on it but why is that a big deal? Forgive me for my rant. I was just a little surprised at the pop up! It is called My Frogpatch and it is on Blogger if you are interested.

        You have been misinformed - you CAN place a link to your blog in your Hub.  What you can't do is link to it more than once in the same Hub.  Just one link is absolutely fine, I do it all the time. 

        It's true that all kinds of writing is welcome on HubPages.  You may have noticed we have quite a few poets here, for instance.  Unfortunately fiction and personal memoirs tend not to make any money, but then they tend not to make money anywhere else either.

    When categorizing I believe you go to books/writing and the subtopic is in there, it is the proper place to publish. smile
