What's your experience so far as a hubber? Any sucessful story so far?
What's your experience as a hubber? Considering; the good, the bad, and the ugly....
The bad: scarcity of views
The good: Its nice creating the hubs
The Ugly: Where is the moolah?
Hello Dreatech - my apology for the late response. I've had many successes as a hubber which I will eloborate on in the following;
1. The number of hits worldwide for my hubs
2. The number of contacts made worldwide
3. One hub was used to argue support for the Kurds in Northern Iraq at the Federal level
4. One hub is currently being used to encourage worldwide support towards the elimination of Human Trafficking in Malaysia, Thailand, and Washington State)
5. Several hubs on science and religion are being re-posted by popular sites such as 'Christian Monitor', Word Fitly Spoken', 'Stumble Upon', 'Salon' , and four other well known sites
6. One hub is being used as a basic source of information on 2012 events, and a source for scholastic research papers.
7. I actually get paid for the hubs (However, I'am keeping my day job)
8. The hubs are receiving significant hits on a daily basis putting the total hits for all hubs above 50,000
9. The list of successes goes on....
I can't recall any significantly bad experiences. Hubbing for me has been an enjoyable hobby.
The good: I write what I want to write, without anyone making suggestions or criticizing what I write. Plus, I have 17 followers- not a ton, but its 17 people who hear my thoughts and ideas, which I absolutely love. I actually feel like I'm being heard.
The bad: Figuring out hubpoints, hubkarma, how to get more views, setting up affiliate accounts (then realizing after being here for two weeks nothing has happened with said affiliates).
The ugly: The number of emails from hubpages I get every day!!
I am enjoying hubpages , the forums , this section , starting to earn a bit with the new hubpages program , get more viewers from facebook , stumble upon , I earn more from kooday ,about $100 a week + get more viewers from my hubs there , have a hub about it !Can write anywhere !
Would love a lot more viewers
I did not wrote any hub yet but I have couple in my minds. Will see in the future. At this moment I really enjoy this website.
I have been using Hubpages for about 2 months and this what I've learned so far:
The good: A supportive community, being able to write whatever I want on any subject, feeling like a real writer, the potential to earn money, 3 of my hubs have been featured on Hubpages' Facebook page and 1 on the homepage, I feel like a mini-celebrity on Hubpages.
The bad: I still don't fully understand the purpose of an RSS feed. I am OK with never knowing.
The ugly: Sometimes someone posts a comment that I just do not get. Maybe I don't understand their sense of humor or maybe they are just plain creepy.
I love the community and get lots of support. I love writing and I love when people comment on my hubs. I have been here a little over two months. Made a couple bucks on AdSense, nowhere near the $100. Anyway, I'm on hubpages everyday and I think I'm addicted.
The bad was my first month of September, the good was from October-February(especially February).
In late February there was the Google Algo change.. And from there it has been VERY UGLY.
Not to mention we the people from Illinois lost Amazon.(takes place on April 15.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. That's what I've learned.
I've been frustrated with the changes to the TOS, adjusting to it and the flags here or there.
I've met some very nice people here.
Thanks alot. This will help me to re-structure myself to be a good hubber.
I've been doing it for 10 months and just got approved for my Adsense account last week and earned some pocket change which is very exciting. Hope to continue earning and having fun writing about topics that interest me. There really hasn't been a downside yet.

Recently, there was a thread of someone complaining about Hub of the Days lacking amazing writing skills. Their complaint stated the Hubs being selected were because they were niche driven and 'how too's' instead of stellar writing from the soul. The day he posted that, it was my hub that was...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

What's the single most important piece of advice you would give to a new hubber?What do you know now that you wished you'd know/ or been told when you started? What's the single most important piece of advice you would give to a new hubber?

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...
