For those of you who have a pretty successful blog or website (that earns decent money), when did you decide to make the switch from hubpages to going out on your own? Has it been worth it?
I'm the same. I have blogs that provide income, and I have articles on HubPages. I feel they are both valuable platforms. I also make money doing transcription online.
Just Google it - "online transcription" - there are a lot of companies hiring people online. In general, the faster you type, the more you can earn.
The time to switch to blogging is when you've identified a subject to blog about. There's a reason why HubPages has transformed from a generalist site into a suite of specialist sites - if a website doesn't specialise these days, it's doomed.
You need a nice broad topic, so you can keep on blogging about it regularly for years, but it also needs to be a clearly defined one (personally, I think HubPages hasn't made some of their niche sites specialised enough). And you need to be confident you're knowledgeable enough to write about it for the long term.
I don't know many people who blog for a living now, though. Six or seven years ago, I knew heaps, but most of them have either given up, or their blog is a minor part of their income. They're doing freelance writing, or setting up blogs for other people, or doing something else entirely.
I should add - as Raggededge says, there is no need to "switch". Unlike a blog, you don't need to be active on HubPages to earn income, so when you decide to start blogging or freelance writing or whatever, you simply leave all your Hubs published and forget about them. Or, if you're like me, you find HubPages is a great place to avoid work - er - to have a reviving break when you're working online, so you'll still drop into the forums or comment on a few Hubs.

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...

... when most of your content is on Hubpages?I noticed that recently a few of the Hubpages regulars have gotten together on Blogger for a joint project. What are the advantages of using Blogger as an ancillary site, when you have most of your content on Hubpages?

When people call their Hub a "blog" do you comment on it?I see people writing about how they are starting a blog here on Hub Pages, and I am tempted to leave a comment that Hub Pages is not a place for blogs, or to send them an email that this is not for blogs, but Haven't. It...
