    To be honest, I really don't know!   It is so frustrating here sometimes. 

    I do enjoy reading the forums, and there are some great writers here.   Sometimes my hubs actually get traffic and comments too.   :-)

    Because it was the first place anyone who wasn't a friend or family had ever said to me, "You are a good writer."  How can you not get addicted to that?!

    It is so fun writing on HubPages. You get to show your work to the HubPages community and gain approval if you are successful enough. If you are true to yourself with what you're doing, you wouldn't have to worry.

    I used to be addicted to HubPages, then I gave it up cold turkey. No namby pamby 12 step program for me, I just quit. Lately though, I have had a bit of a relapse, but I find that I am less obsessive about it. I am now able to be a "social hubber."

    For me, Hubpages is the king/queen of writing sites. The long term writers here are dedicated to their craft and there is a great amount of information here from many talented writers. Theres also a good community spirit and we can all discuss and enjoy each others ideas and writing. We all suppport each other instead of being in competition. Theres also the regular income of course and its a great site to get your info out there. Its also high quality which makes a lot of difference.

    I arrived at Hubpages willy-nilly from Squidoo. Because I've always been successful at other writing sites, I plunged in to make my pages fit the Hubpage guidelines. So far fame and fortune eludes me on this site, but I can't quit trying. Too stubborn, I guess.

        I wrote for eHow, but they closed their Writer's Compensation Program. They bought out the writers' library of articles. I was pleased with my 5-figure payment for my articles.
