    What makes HubPages so popular?  What reason are most doing it for? I'm new so help me understand.

    How does it differ than another writing sources which would make you want to write for this one. I'm so confused with all the different trackers and things, I'm trying to understand why everyone is doing it and how long does it take to figure it all out? I started due to a link here to make a comment for an article but I don't even know it that counts as anything, except for the fact I wanted to comment. Thanks!

    Lifeallstar1, I found hubpages the easiest site to use when I was looking at writing online. Being quite new at this type of writing I found hubpages easy in that you just write and the rest seems to just follow. It has taken me a little while to work out the design elements but this is just becoming familiar with the site the more you use it. Take some time to explore all the parts this site has to offer, I have found it to be the best and many hubbers are so helpful. The reason I enjoy this site is I just want to write and not worry too much about the other stuff, which is what hubpages allows me to do. Good luck.

    Thanks for responding. I hope to find my way around soon. I've started my first Hub so once I finish hopefully that will help figure out how to use certain things and what they are used for. I didn't know if most people do it for websites they own or what.  I guess I'll find out soon enough but in the meantime I'm having fun and I will check out the forums in hopes of meeting some interesting people just as I've come across interesting articles and such friendly helpful people like you guys!

    I need all the help I can get!  : )
