My hubpages are more involve with DIY crafts, Handmade cards, recipe and health issues. So, I describe my interest of what articles i write and most people prefer my recipes and crafts.
Since most of my hubs are opinion pieces, I usually just state that I am a contributor to HubPages.Com and include the address for my sub domain and a brief explanation of the type of writing I do. Depending on the job, I may not include it in the resume. I have a basic resume, but I tweak it for the particular job I am seeking. However, at 62, people are not knocking down my door, so it may not make any difference.
I list it as one of my writing credits for freelance writing gigs.
Just write that you are a creative writer for HuPages. Explain a little about the site and what you write about.
I believe I list it as "Web content writer" but putting it under freelance works as well. It does help if you have a specific kind of hub that you are best at. For example, if you're applying to a position with computers, it would help to mention that you write computer tutorials.
I like the idea of putting hub writings on a resume. It shows that we are using our skills in this way, and I find it makes others very curious if you talk about it.
Great question this is. We should never think of our writings as just a hobby, but a skill for sure.
That's a really great question! I really hadn't thought to even include it on my CV/resume until now. I do mention it on Facebook however and listed my role as a contributor on HubPages. I do agree with others that if you focus on a specific type of Hub (computers, medical, DIY, etc), then you should definitely mention that in your description. Explaining the site and linking your page is also a very good idea. I look forward to reading what others have to say/suggest
Along with the other article sites I contribute to, I usually refer to them as 'web content writing' or 'article writing'. For my paid pieces, I refer to them under my SEO section.
I actually have listed HubPages on my resume or, alternatively, my CV. On a resume, I listed it in my experience section or skill section as a freelance writer. On a CV, I listed the relevant hubs by title. However, there are many things to consider. First and foremost, listing your experience on HubPages on your resume should be relevant to the position you are seeking. Next, consider the quality of your hubs and the totality of the work on HubPages. HubPages can be listed in the experience, skills, activities, hobbies, and interest sections of a resume. Pick the one section where it will be most valuable. Today I posted a hub entitled "How To List HubPages on Your Resume or CV." You may find it useful.

Another hubber, DrMark1961 asked if Hubbing could be a full time job, which got my attention. I have always wanted to be a full time writer, and while I know that Hubpages is not going to give me a hefty pay out what with the google adsense and all that other malarkey taking chunks out (as other...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
