is short poetry ok ? is there a word requirement? if so how many?
Welcome first off aware.
Second short poetry is just fine...I was told to at least have 500 words per hub, you can go less or more but the main thing HAVE FUN!!!! Again welcome!
thank you for the welcome ive noticed your posting in forum. you seem cool . i only write short stuff . 500 words? dont think i can do it lol
If you write for fun, you can write whatever length you like. but if you want to make money,you should write about other topics and 350 words hubs or more.. I do it for fun,so I have some hubs with more than 500 hundred words and many poetry with less than 200.
lol I didn't think I could write 500 either but on the hubs I was able to...writing things I enjoy writing about. Then I also through in some fiction stories for fun since I LOVE to write fiction stories.
thanks tantrum . a follow up ? if i may. do people really make money on this site ?have you made money? if so how much ?
People make money by writing articles that appeal to search engine traffic/people who will click on ads or buy through affiliate programs. Poetry isn't going to earn any money, but if you're just doing it for funsies there's no reason to worry about the length, either.
If you're the type of person who might actually have been published, it might be a great way to direct attention to your books though.
LMAO habee! I'm never going to live that picture down am I? HAHAHA
700-1500 words seems to be the sweet spot if you want your hub to rank high.
People make money here. Plenty of hubbers get a payout ever month($100+). Some people make a living here (typically those based in places with a lower cost of living like Africa or India). I get a pay out every 2 months, ie I currently earn around $50-$70.
Remember this is a passive income - I seldom write hubs these days (don't have time). It is a bit like planting trees - Once the trees are established you just pick the fruit when it appears. Or more accurately AdSense pick the fruit and transfer cash to your bank account..

Hello! I am new to HubPages but not to writing. I don't know why it's taken me so long to join this lovely community, but I guess all that matters at this point is that I finally had time and frame of mind to join. I am really looking forward to interacting with those who are most active on...

I was just wondering what people's take on article length is. Do you make a point of including as much info as possible in your article going for longer length or if you can cover it decently in a shorter length do you prefer to stick with that? I'm seeing some articles that are well...

Is hubbing a waste of time if I don't plan on making any money, but would like to hone my skills? Constructive criticism, along with positive reinforcement would be my goals here instead of profit.I'm looking to be appreciated for entertainment value as opposed to teaching, advising or promoting...

I tend to write longer articles for Hubpages (2000 plus words). Would I get more traffic if I wrote two 1000 word or three 700 word articles on related subjects rather than one longer article? Please let me know your experiences and thoughts.

In their teachings on writing stellar hubs, the HubPages staff has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,500 words long and has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,150 words long. Numerous hubs by hubbers on hubbing have recommended that a hub should be at least circa 400 to 500 words long, at...

How well do poems and short stories do on HP?I noticed a while back somewhere that HP staff had mentioned that creative writing such as poems and short stories don't do as well as informational pieces. I'm curious to know about the earnings of some of the people who publish a lot of these. Do you...
