    Haven't been on HP actively for awhile now. Looking for a project to get completely dedicated to.

    I am interested in exploring a recipe niche- if I have to narrow it down more, it would be crockpot/ninja blender recipes for lunches and dinners.

    I've wrote a few recipe hubs here on HP along with a wide range of other topics. My current CPM is around $4-$5 range (not sure if I'm allowed to put the specific number). I'm not sure if I should explore this new niche on HP or go straight to WordPress and do my own thing.

    I feel like starting on HP would be easier & I would probably get paid sooner. I see they are implementing niche sites, and I'm not sure how that's doing- also, not sure what else they are doing.

    So  should I explore this niche:
    a) with few year old HP account that has a wide range of topics
    b) start a new HP account with this single topic
    c) straight to WordPress

    Skip the new account. They got rid of the subdomains, so niche subdomains do not matter anymore.

    As for HP versus WordPress, I'll be interested in seeing others opinions as well.

    There is no point in writing in a niche on HubPages because you no longer have a sub-domain.  When you write, each Hub just goes into the vast pool of other Hubs and Google doesn't recognise that you're a specialist.

    Right now HubPages is choosing the best and highest-traffic Hubs to put on the new niche sites so I don't know how long it might be before your Hubs would stand a chance of being chosen.

    If you have a good niche then yes, I would say start your own site - in the long run it has a much better chance of success.  Buy a domain name, then it's up to you whether you want to attach it to a Blogger blog or go the whole hog with hosting and Wordpress software.

      Bolding done by me. It is indeed the whole key. $10.

      Is it going to be much more difficult to get exposure/views, if I choose the WordPress route?

        No, it will be easier. Though recipes are a highly competitive area so it will be tough.

        Learning how to monetize effectively is the big challenge.

            An unfair question.
