    I found out about Hubpages online and after looking it up and seeing how it works, I was interested in signing up and giving it a try!

    I personally love being on Hubpages because I like writing and I can therefore write and share about things that I know or enjoy. I also love interacting with other Hubbers on here. Plus, I love getting feedback on my hubs, especially when someone says that it was helpful.

    I discovered it 2 years ago when I was looking for ways to earn money online, and I love to write, so it was totally up my alley... anyway, a bunch of life happened and I totally forgot about it until a few months ago.
    Now I'm more hooked than ever!
    I love to write & share.  The community is super supportive & awesome. (only a few minor glitchy hubbers)
    It is so rewarding to hear feedback from others & to know that I'm making a difference, no matter how small.

    Great question!  Thanks for putting it out there smile

    I found hubpages via search results a few times and I had been looking for ways to build and share content.  What really impressed me here over other sites I looked at was the community spirit and how friendly everyone was.  I received great hub feedback right away and it was very engaging so I stayed.  My hubs do quite well in the search engines and my hubs and niche websites work well to promote and enhance each other.  I need to write more hubs and have slowed down a lot on it, but I do really enjoy it for the feedback and community.

    I discovered Hubpages whilst browsing one day, I enjoy writing and am obsessed with cooking so it seemed a great way to combine the two. I'm interested in adding income if at all possible but I havn't worked out that side of it yet! I'm also enjoying communicating with other Hubbers particularly now that I'm a Carer and don't get out and about as much as I used to.

    An online friend mentioned it to me and something about building backlinks. That was over a year ago. I haven't used it much when I first started, but I've been more active the last few months. It's quite enjoyable to create hubs. ^_^

    I was introduced to hubpages by a friend who pushed me to join and when I didn't do it fast enough for him, he set up my account, picked a name for me and told me : "you're all set, now write something" I love this activity because it allows me to test if what I write is interesting to other people or not. It also allows me to sample  what other people write about and assess their popularity as well. In the end, it's all good

      I like what you just said, Hubpages dose allow you to test the market because that's how I recieved the chance to do food writing for the magazine I write for now.....Don't give up on this just keep putting out things you believe are worth reading ..

    I first got involved with Hubpages when I ran across the book "Blogging for Dummies".  I was interested in the extra income and I like to write.  I am a bit rusty right now because of the requirements but this is my first question answered by me.  So...I hope my experience is as good as I am expecting it to be.

    I stumbled onto the HP site when I was researching something (I forget what) but it had nothing to do with writing.  When I looked at the site and read the information, I realized it was an internet writing site I was looking and hoping for.  I love the writing community here and the camraderie.  I love getting feedback on what I write and I love writing and creating hubs. I love leaving comments and bantering with the other Hubbers.  I love magazine writing and this is the closest thing I could find on the internet that wasn't an established magazine like Women's Day or People etc.  It is a great place to hone my skills and learn from others.
