Well, for me it definitely has to be the fact that I can write about whatever I want (as long as I don't break the Terms of Service, of course), in whatever format I want, whenever I want.
The absence of such freedom keeps me from joining a lot of other article sites that attempt to set limits or restrictions on what/how/when you write.
They allow me to be myself, speaking from many perspectives, experiences and voices.........all under one name.
Without having own website, we can publish our articles for free, also has nice options on generating income from this articles.
Within reason, writing and posting when I want about what I want.
The chance to help people who post sensible questions, and the chance to speak my mind to those who post inane questions.
I do think the forums need sorting out, they too often degenerate into, off topic, and they seem to be populated by wannabe comics who are not funny. Or others whose only reason to be there is to be sarcastic and score points off of other people.
I love getting feedback from people and knowing what the think of my writing
First it is free, second google loves it, third good opportunities to earn if we use the site on the right track without violating the TOS, fourth and last but not least is the Forum, very good place to discuss every thing, everyone on the forum helps each other.
Simply what i say hubpages is amazing.
Choosing what I want to write is important to me as to other writers. Hubpages gives us a platform for our writing. The community here is helpful and friendly.
Along with almost all of the other reasons already given, I like to be able to go back and edit - or even delete- my previously written work.
The answers here are all good, and I agree or fall in line with all of them. I'd also add that Hubpages beats Info barrel and Squido pages for the user in terms of structure, or user interface.
I love to write...and here it is so easy to do so... on your own time and of whatever subject you feel! And there is a huge community to discuss issues with and befriend almost anyone...as well as an opportunity to make a little extra income!! All positives in my book! A great place for almost anyone, and from almost anywhere!
I agree with all of you and I really appreciate your answers! I like the fact that, even though I joined HubPages for my business, I feel like that's not all I have to write about. I have plenty of other interests that I've always wanted to write about, and I finally feel like it won't negatively affect my business.
To express my creativity.. thoughts.. feelings.. stuff.
To connect with like minds from around the world
To gain immediate access to new perspectives about peoples life experiences, thoughts, feelings..
The challenge of creating an interesting and informative articles.
The thing I like most about HubPages is the community of writers. I enjoy learning articles from articles that are a new subject to me as well as supporting my writer friends in their writing. It is an awesome experience and I am happy to be a part of it.
So far, it has been a great place for me to learn how to become a better writer with the constructive criticism of my peers. Its great.
It's a feeding ground of ideas and it's interactive. What's most important to me is there's a room for creativity and it's not technical.
I love hubpages, because of the possibility to write about nearly everything, and the way you can "network" with other article writers. Awesome! Good Question Jordan.
Great question Jordan! Hubpages is by far the best place I've found online to write, read, connect with people and make a little money while doing so ;-)
I can write from my heart about almost everything. There are lots of god article to read and learn from. And it´s a god place to practise my english as a swedish guy
HP is a great place become a writer. With the constructive reviews from my group, it should be a good road to earning additional income.

I'm worried that a requirement for SEO techniques compromises the freedom to write about what you want on hubpages and still get enough traffic to make money. Is it possible to write about whatever you want and still...

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?
