    Hello  all, I just wanted to write a comment about the enormous amount of value I've seen people putting on their personal websites lately.  There are blogs, newsletters, e-courses, offers for consulting, and of course links to books and personal shops.  I even say one website that looked similar to a hubpages niche sites.  As you know, trends are always moving forward...we know that from Blockbuster for example.  This site is great an has enormous value but I encourage you all to keep being innovative on person sites. I have been active on forums and blogs since 2004 and since then, many of the people I used to interact with have online business.  Just wanted to through that out there to you hubbers, I just see things growing and moving on a fast pace online.

      I think they are using a second account - which is not actually allowed, OP. I have done it once or twice as my two user-names are almost exactly the same.

      Here's what the forum rules say:

      "Be honest about your identity. While we don't prohibit having more than one HubPages account, we ask that you stick to a single persona in the Forums. The deceptive use of multiple accounts, especially in a single thread, is prohibited. The use of secondary accounts to circumvent a Forum ban is also prohibited."

        It is not illegal to use a second account here...I asked prior to starting one myself.  However, I do not post  on the forums under my second account name and was advised to please not do so.  Once in awhile I slip up, but very rarely and always with honest intent.  Depends on how willing you are to follow the rules.

          I think the point with this user is that they had an old account but they are starting afresh with a new one, and it looks as though they prefer to use the new name when posting on the forums.   Which is just fine so long as they don't use the other one.

          The reason for the concern about two accounts on the forums is that there was one person who used to create threads just to have a debate with himself (using his two accounts).  They were often hilarious but also controversial and usually turned nasty eventually.

            Yes, no one ever came to my old account and I'm basically not important as far as my history on hubpages is concerned.  Thanks for explaining the concern about the two accounts, wow...i can't believe someone  actually did that lol.

    I hope you've got your tin hat on.  I'm getting bashed over the head for telling Hubbers not to put all their eggs in one basket and that, IF (and ONLY if) they have a specialist subject, they should be starting their own blog for it. 

    To me that's only sensible:   you only have to look at the long list of internet sites that have closed down over the years since I joined HubPages.  Writing sites, like all businesses, are born, evolve and eventually die. If we're lucky, HubPages will keep going for many years to come - if we're unlucky, it might close down tomorrow.  That's realism, not pessimism.

      Wow, I had no idea this would be controversial.  I just noticed that this trend where people marketing their skills online have become even more  savvy.  I too believe that people should build up their own websites on the side, but I was really just focused on the trends I've seen when I wrote this post.  I was excited and wanted to share.   Thank you for what you shared, I agree totally.
