I enjoyed being on Squidoo and was sad when it closed, but my lenses all ended up moving over to Hubpages. When I was on Squidoo, I was completely free to write about anything I felt like writing about, and one of the things I did was to document my writing process. This is a sort of "throwback" to those days:
Anyone else have fond memories of Squidoo?
Yes. I cut my teeth at Squidoo for publishing on the internet. 10 years later, I have no issues with publishing websites or trying different writing sites.
I only started with Squidoo maybe 3 years ago (along with Infobarrel and Hubpages at the same time; that's why I now have two HP user names). I definitely found Squidoo much easier to use and a great deal more intuitive than either of the other platforms (easiest by far until Bubblews came along).
I'm curious about InfoBarrel. They've been promising a site overhaul, but it never seems to happen. Are you still writing there? How's it going? Do you recommend it?
I am in the same boat. It took a while to adapt to HP but I am perfectly fine with it now. I missed Squidoo for the charity donation aspect. You really can't make a living writing here or on Squidoo. Just do it for fun.
When HP bought Squidoo content I deleted all my lenses because I knew it was going to be more trouble that it was worth to make them fit HP's requirements. My squid earnings had been steadily declining anyway.
Curated Amazon product lists were fun to make, but over the years Amazon has starting including lots of curated lists on-site. People shop online to save time, and if they know the ins and outs of the Amazon website they'll do all the research there to save time rather than visiting various content farms and blogs.
I have missed Squidoo and when all of my lenses were transferred over to HP I'll have to admit I was completely lost. Just recently the past few weeks in fact I started to venture here and see if I could pick up writing again.

Just recently came back on Hubpages and wondered now that I am out of a job and looking to post on a daily basis (hopefully 3-4 posts per day) if there are other sites similar to this one where there is a potential to get paid by posting? Don't want to throw all my eggs in one basket so if you guys...

Hupgaes allows us to write hubs and received revenues thru affiliates. Is there any other site that offer the same?

Here's an announcement (dated Aug 11) from Harlow-McGaw, the owners of Daily Two Cents, Writedge, and other sites:"It saddens us to say we will be shutting down all our sites at the end of the month. We just can no longer afford to keep them going at a loss since we have so few active writers...

I will be completing 50 hubs here shortly. Hubapges is the only platform that I've written on. My question is, should I go to other writing sites and publish there, or should I continue writing more hubs here exclusively to earn more money. more hubs=more income?If I should write elsewhere, what...

I know that there has been plenty of discussion (and Hubs, by Darkside, Jimmythejock, Hovalis, and others) comparing HubPages to Squidoo, a similar Web service.We recently signed up with Quantcast, a service that tracks and makes publicly available, sites' traffic figures. Although we've only...
