    Is Hub Pages a place for humor?

    Besides my obvious love for video games, I don't really have a specific niche...I write about pretty much everything and anything, there is no method to my madness. I know I have an off-the-wall sense of humor which isn't for everyone, but I was just wondering if there's a place for someone like me here on Hub Pages. Are Hub Pages as serious as they seem...do people here like to crack a smile...or for the most part, is it all seriousness all the time?

    I write mostly humor stuff and seem to be doing ok. Most of my followers have a wicked sense of humor and are funny in their own right. So, yes, there is a place here at HubPages for you and your sense of humor. big_smile

    There are some very funny hubs about, maybe you've not come across them yet - or maybe your humour really is off the wall and doesn't register some of them! I'm intrigued now by what you may write. Browse hubs by topic, under entertainment there is a humour section. People's idea of what's funny will naturally vary. Hope you find something that tickles you.

    I try to write hubs with a bit of humor and don't take them too seriously. But to answer your question, hub pages is a place for writing content that google will rate highly.

    MJM....If my opinion counts for anything much, I'm afraid I'm over the edge...."Every where" is a place for humor......except, of course, needless to say....a tragic situation or scenario........I said, "over the edge"...not plain stupid.
    If you haven't seen tons of humor on HP, you've merely not come upon it yet...and believe me, you don't know what you're missing!
    I have met some of the funniest people EVER, here on HP.  Just off the top of my head....."Thoughtsandwiches" and "Mark Ewbie,"  (HILARIOUS)....."TToombs", who has commented here, "imkarn"......so many, I hate to overlook them, but eventually you'll meet up with them.
    Happy cruising!

      @fpherj48 of course your opinion counts...you are the bomb diggity. Thanks for the information and if you'll now please excuse me, I have some hubs (and hubbers) to search out.

      If you're going to see Thomas or Mark.......go potty first.   I'm in process of suing Thomas (thoughtsandwiches) for the hernia I developed, reading 3 of his hubs in a row.......His hub on"orphan hubs" should be labeled "Dangerous."

    Honestly, humor is one of the best things you can have here. The internet is flooded with content. There is virtually nothing you can write about that hasn't already been covered elsewhere. That's why it's so important to establish your voice. Give people a reason to come back to your articles, even if you're not providing any new information. Humor is the quickest way to do that, if you can do it well. My only advice is to not restrict yourself; write the kind of stuff that you think would be funny and the rest will just fall into place.

      Awesome advice...thank you so much. I am trying...but I don't know if my idea of humor is really funny...or if it just make me look like a screwball.

    It's definitely okay to be humorous on Hubpages. I've read some very funny satirical hubs since I've been here. Having a sense of humor will help you gain followers and views.

    Oh, Michael, don't you know? This IS the asylum (of course, I read your profile; surprised?)!! EFFER certainly knows whereof she speaks. The humor abounds here.

      You actually read my stuff...I am surprised...no one has ever done that before...I'm not sure what to say.
