    Do you write for other sites, besides Hub Pages?

    If you do, what sites are they?  We love to write but sometimes its nice to make money while doing it.

    No, Prior to joining HP, I had been writing on my blogs with personal domains. Now I am just posting URL links to my existing sites as I have found that HP is the easiest and best way to share your knowledge globally. HP is encouraging genuine writers who believe in originality . You can post your URL links to Delicious, Yahoo Contributor Network and other adsense revenue sharing sites. But HP is the best and Unique.

    HubPages was the first writing site that I joined.  I knew that I didn't write well and learned to do so and it was an easy platform to write with.  Then all *ell broke loose with Google being BIG DADDY and think they own the world.  People started doing their own thing and I just waited it out and stuck with HubPages.  Then some idiots got to be moderators here and that is why I had no choice but to go to other writing sites.  I am no making all that much money here and certainly not at any other place because Google also owns the world and thinks they are the ONLY search Engine out there.  I have articles on Blogger, Triond, Pubwages and the latest one now is Zujava.  We will see what happens as the year progresses and if people start using other great search engines other than GOOGLE.

    Hubpages was my first in order to get an Adsense account.  I also write for Squidoo, Reddit, Ezine Articles, Go Articles, and a few others to help generate traffic to my own website that I created.  I'm still learning though!  I need to work more on earning money now that I'm starting to generate traffic. 

    Writing has been fun, but I've found that for every one question that is answered about writing and websites, three more pop up!  The technical aspects of the internet are the hardest to learn for me.

    Besides my own blogs/websites, I've written at Yahoo! Voices (formerly Associated Content) for years. I like the fact that it's strictly writing oriented (no inserting photos, videos, products) and you can get an up front payment for well written articles. It's only a few bucks (on average about $4), but it's a nice insurance policy for articles that don't ever attract search traffic. Popular articles will earn you much more in the long term, but flops that won't ever get many views still earn you a few bucks.

    I have a Squidoo account and I've tried a few things there, but I never liked it much. Ranks below both Yahoo! Voices and HubPages in my opinion.

    I have my own blog at blogger.com, where I write. I also contribute recipes at Tastykitchen.com.  Prior to HP, i was writing for Instablogs, but  since I  discovered HP, I write mostly here only. I love the site and the community. I have learnt so much and still there is so much to be learnt. The variety of subjects on which you can read and write hubs, the interaction among hubbers in Q-A section, the forums---i just love everything about HP.

    No I don't. Too time consuming next to enjoying my life in the sunny climate of Valencia, Spain.

    Besides, writing quality content is much more important than publishing scribbles, scattered around different sites, to fill some blank space, hardly visible to a crowd that matters for real.

    I like my Hubcrowd and will keep on spreading the Hublove, I receive through the heartwarming comments of my followers!

    I write for my own websites as well, but Hubpages is the only site that I write for of its kind. I have considered trying Squidoo as well (I'm a huge Seth Godin fan), but I've not tried it yet.

    That's primarily because I love Hubpages, and I don't often try to fix things that aren't broken.

    The first site like this I ever tried was helium, but I really didn't like their voting system, it seemed too aggressive and mean spirited. I understood the concept, but I just wasn't into it. So, I only wrote about 1 or 2 articles for it.

    Have an awesome weekend!

    I wrote for a few other sites, but they were not for me, sites such as Triod, Squidoo, Ezine, and Shetoldme. I find Hubpages more rewarding in more ways than one, and the articles here are entertaining, engaging, informative, and useful. I can honestly say that I've learned quite a bit from the Hubs here to help me function in my everyday living. Plus, I'm still learning new and useful tips and ideas from the Hubpages "Learning Center" and I have only been here one year. I like writing on this site, i don't think I will ever stop writing articles.

    I also write on Blogger, Examiner, and Webs, although most of my best work is definitely here on Hubpages.

    Mary -
    I used to be one of HP's greatest supporters.  However, as of recent, I've been writing more on my blog than on Hubpages.  Some of the new policies here seem completely aimed at eliminating creative writers, so I'm moving many of my hubs to my blog site.  What's funny is that these same policies are now hiding Hubnuggets (now Rising Star) Award winners.  So, when those above made their selections about quality, all we can assume is that they obviously didn't know what they were doing.  I'm guessing they still don't.  And, although they swear there's not a double standard in moderating, there definitely is.  How else could a WWII hub displaying a video of a violent massacre be allowed, but a joke about a veteran that likes to shoot his rifle get the advertising pulled from the hub?  From all the people I've seen blogging now, and either dropping or seriously reducing their writings for HP"s in the last couple of months, I'm beginning to believe I'm not alone in believing this.  I don't know that I will completely leave HP's as I made a lot of good friends here, but my concentration is definitely elsewhere.  I guess I could always write a recipe to appease them, or copy one out of a cookbook like many do if I wanted to please the Google God worshipers, but that's just not my style.  Before pulling some of my hubs away, I had over 15,000 views, and had collected a total of $0.00 from this site.   I've made more than that in since I started blogging, with only 25% of those total views.   It would be nice to see HP's go back to the community minded site it was only a few months ago, but I'm not holding my breath for it to occur.  I'm guessing the administrators simply want to get views up with Google so they can sell the site and make a few million dollars off of the sale.   At least, that's sure the way all they're doing leads one to believe.  Just my two cents.

    Hub Pages is my first attempt at publishing writing, or earning from it.  I linked it to my blogger, which is where my creative writing is.  I applied for the apprenticeship program, and am waiting to hear a response.  I know I need to invest more time cruising the HP site, and participating.  It seems as if the writing and publishing takes up most of my designated time.  I hope that it pays off financially, but if not, I have already become a better writer just from the effort and time invested!

It's the best quality writing site, easiest to use and the people here are great. I'd say 90% of my stuff is published through Hubpages.
