    HubPages has done an amazing job creating a community here.  I played around on Squidoo for the last couple of months before starting up here, and HubPages flat out ROCKS!

    The quality and diversity of stuff here is awesome, and it's all in one place.  Squidoo just seems more disjointed in that regard, so I'm a Hubber for the long haul.

    Hubpages has turned out to be a great place in so many ways.

    It is a great tool for my affiliate marketing, a great platform for my adsense

    Now I also love this place because of the people I am meeting.  I can be involved in inteligent conversation, meet great people and have fun working.

    I like the fact that it's uncomplicated.  Some writing sites aren't really writing sites.  They're some "complicated, social, thing" (or something) where the writing isn't particularly the main focus.  Here, there's help if anyone ever wants it.  Other than that, Hubbers are left alone to write their Hubs and do what it takes to make them successful (or not). 




    (There's free donuts?  Nobody told me there's free donuts.  Are there any left, do you think?)

    I like HubPages because writing and building the hubs is easy and fun. I like the community because it's diverse. Of course I like the ability to earn through adsense, amazon, and ebay. I joined two years ago, wrote a couple of hubs and then got distracted with other things. Now I'm back and really enjoying it! HubPages has change *a lot* in the past two years - most definitely for the better smile

    The adsense!!!

    I have over 30 articles on ezine, and they do wonders for traffic at my site, but nothing is better than hubpages for affiliate promotion. Love it.

        PS I like Hubpages because it challenges my writing, it makes me work harder and therefore I end up at times, with a better end result.  HubPages is also something I find myself proud of and want to build a strong portfolio.
