Alright, so I've been thinking about the changes to LetterPile. They affect me, as someone who had a couple of hubs on LetterPile -- Hubs dedicated to writing. In particular, hubs related to writing letters. (I have a few others as well that were dedicated to writing, but none that I felt were outstanding and which probably needed work even before the editors got their mitts on them).
To be clear, I am enjoying the benefits of the niche sites. My income has risen steadily since my hubs settled into the new sites and I'm happy.
HOWEVER, I like the idea of having a niche site which focuses on writing and stationary (if possible). I've not done much writing on Hubpages in more than two years, but I plan to get kicked off in the new year focusing on the topic of letter writing, journaling, planners, and otherwise stationary.
The Bullet Journal and Planner Girl communities are rather large, and I feel that given the monetization options for tools of the trade, this could benefit everyone involved -- both Hubpages and the writers. Some of the items are rather small in value, but the people who purchase them do so in large quantities. Things like pens (fountain pens especially), high-end planners, high-end notebooks, stationary, etc. And this isn't considering things like the actual desks people write at.
I'd love to see a niche site focusing on these topics, or to at least have a niche site that my new hubs will be able to go to. I'm really seeing the benefit of these sites.
You probably mean 'stationery'. 'Stationary' is something else
I have several journaling hubs, mostly art journals, they are on Feltmagnet. I can't see HP setting up a site for that narrow a topic. Bullet journals and the like, would come under the art journal categories, I would think.

Hello, Team!I just had a "positively brilliant" idea! It has long been said, and made known that Hub Pages is not particularly poetry friendly; that poems do better on poetry sites.Well, now--since your new niche sites stand alone, and appear (to G) to be unrelated to HP itself,...

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the topics I write on the way I write on them so I'll likely need new homes for all...

Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work I've already posted here.I have a couple of niche HubPages accounts that do okay....

The chart showed a loss of about 55% of the traffic on Hubpages in the last 6 months.I also looked at the traffic trends on some of the niche sites, and they don't seem to be making up for the loss.In fact the bounce rate seemed higher than that of Hubpages.What are the old timers thoughts about...

Only the best Hubs on HubPages are being moved to niches, so everything on the niche sites is spam free and trash free. There are no pieces written in broken English or written in ways that appear to be spun. Everything that's low quality is left behind. Even the ads are high-quality on the niche...
