Yay! Final HP payout yesterday and now I will delete my final article and say goodbye and thanks for all the fish!
Goodbye Casey - What fish? No one ever gave me any fish. You have not been receiving fish on the religious forums, or have you?
Hi Solaras it is a Douglas Adams reference (the same guy who wrote Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy). Despite Casimiro`s lack of success here, I guess those of us who write about dogs and cats are allowed to stay here, and maybe even fans of the dolphin (hard rockers and Simpsons fans too, Fat Freddys Cat--wouldnt want to forget about you).
Never read it My brother and brother-in-law might get that reference. Still no fish for me....
I wouldn't say lack of success. After all, I did make a couple hundred bucks here. But, it is a MUCH more profitable use of my time to do copywriting instead.
Several hundred bucks! That is great for one week.
You did mean one week, didn´t you?
Sounds like the sane thing to do IMO. You should advertise your services to HP as they are in need of a better copywriter for the blurbs on the front page. This one struck me as particularly awkward:
People from all over the world contribute to HubPages by sharing words and pictures. Get to know us a bit by reading what everyday people have to say about Sports and Recreation, and Football (Soccer). The breadth of content on HubPages is wide, but each article is specific in its own special way!
That is just ghastly! First of all, I have no interest in any form of team sport.
More importantly, "everyday people": what a demeaning way to describe the writers here! This immediately implies Hubpages is NOT the place to look for reliable information and a pleasing literary style, but rather that it provides rubbish cobbled together to please the lowest common denominator in society.
Yes, that is a very unreadable blurb.
There was one main factor that opened my eyes about HP. As a copywriter, I do a LOT of online research on a wide variety of topics. In my searches, I would say an HP article might come up once in a thousand listings if that. The articles are nearly invisible.
"Invisible" - The absence of presence, emmm....
I guess that could also relate to those hundreds of excellent, 'common-folk' writers who once blessed the SERPS, the world and the now shallow halls of HP, before certain members of the management team found great piles of gold could be gained by demonstrating their own writing prowess.
Afterall, how hard could it be satisfying the lowly masses by merely stringing words together with a dash of 'Common' Sense, Adsence, 5 Parts of Non Sense, 2 Parts lack of understanding of the minds, humor, styles or cultural differences of non US members, a whole S...load of Redirected Links, a hopefully 'invisible' presence of smoke, mirrors, some highly questionable blackhat seo tactics and the protracted denials yet inevitable exposure of same?
"Now that's REAL TALENT... and a whole different class of arrogance, far beyond that which could ever be collectively and genuinely harnessed from my now Invisible peers and other such common-folk as I..." replied the Echo

Friends, it's been an interesting two months since I migrated here from Squidoo, but I've decided HubPages isn't the place for me, or my content. Starting tomorrow, I'll begin the process of moving my hubs to my own web sites. (Including today's Hub of the Day, which is my second this month.)For...

I just read the newsletter and learned that Simone will be leaving us soon. It is a shock and I'd love to start begging but I admire the decision and wish her the very best with her own online endeavors.For me Simone has been one of the rocks of Hubpages and I know I for one will miss her kind...

As mentioned in a couple of forum threads recently, Hub Groups (the "More in this Series" module on Hubs) is officially being retired. Groups were created to help Hubbers connect Hubs belonging to a series (e.g., a Hub with multiple parts), making it easy for readers to access the other...

http://randygodwin.hubpages.com/hub/Goo … ges-ForumsRandy was outspoken of the 'malicious' practices of HubPages and it's staff. Now, in this hub where he explains what abuse he suffered, a hubber called Drax, so-called poet, came and called him - 'who rattled your cage... fuck off', ' it is...

I was curious if any hub members have experienced these “ghosts” on HP. These are individuals who register with HP, but do not enter any information in their profile or publish any hubs. They register to follow only one hubber's activity (yours), but do not post any comments to your...
