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.
I write a blog on blogger.com and I also write for Textbroker. I like Textbroker because I can pick and choose what I want to write about and make money on everything I write...not a lot, but money just the same.
I have a blogger site and my own website. That being said, HubPages has been a great venue for writing and meeting other community members. I'm hoping to make money by all of these means. --Deb
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 $4), but it's a nice insurance policy for articles that don't ever attract search traffic. Popular articles will earn you much more in the long term, but flops that won't ever get many views still earn you a few bucks.
I have a Squidoo account and I've tried a few things there, but I never liked it much. Ranks below both Yahoo! Voices and HubPages in my opinion.
My first site was blogger and Hubpages is the second and now I think I wont search for another good site.
I have my own blog at blogger.com, where I write. I also contribute recipes at Tastykitchen.com. Prior to HP, i was writing for Instablogs, but since I discovered HP, I write mostly here only. I love the site and the community. I have learnt so much and still there is so much to be learnt. The variety of subjects on which you can read and write hubs, the interaction among hubbers in Q-A section, the forums---i just love everything about HP.
Good question Mary! I only write on HP, but have wondered abou this, so will follow the answers along.
I also write for Squidoo and Blogger. I might consider writing for other sites as well in future.
Aside HubPages, I also write for Triond, Wikinut, CashMyStudio and ExpertsColumn. Triond, Wikinut and CashMyStudio are helping me spread my online connection and status. Among the five revenue sites - ExpertsColumn is the highest paying site. It pays 1.50$ per 1000 views.
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!
Many of us were there where you are and many of us got disillusioned about 1-2 years ago. If ya wasn't here to experience the roller coast you will never understand where I am coming from. Good Luck with that!
Disillusioned about what? What rollercoaster ride? I'd like to understand what you mean by your comment. I don't see how I could get disillusioned by receiving and spreading the Hublove? Or is your comment based on low earnings? Please explain...
I don't know where Lady Guinevere is coming from either Escobana. I have been on HP for 23 months and, I guess fortunately, all I have experience is Hub Love! It will be interesting to see her answer.
It's not the hubbers, it management. It is the constant repercusions of their ever changing TOS. Many great hubbers have left because of 2 many updating,loss of $. Randy Godwin speaks up and others here. It was a great site 4 yrs ago.
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 do most of my writing as a freelance writer. I like it as it pays better and I can still pick topics I am interested in writing about.
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.
I have my own website but have been neglecting it because of the apprenticeship. I blog a little on tumblr now and then, staring at Blogher and that's about it, for now! I have been looking into some paid freelance sites, also. How about you?
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.
I and I am sure, a few others had wondered where you went...
I was definitely wondering where you were too Rich! I hope what you're saying isn't true as I do love it here and love the people. I guess not watching my earnings has proved to be an advantage as I don't know if I'm winning or losing
I now understand. Was just wondering too, whether this is real.
I first write for blogger.com, then I joined hubpages, triond, experts column and wikinut. Hubpages has the highest paying rank compare to others. Hence, I spent most of my time everyday at hp. Love this site.
Three blogs, Textbroker, and just wrote my first article on ArticlesBase.com. I've written for Ezine in the past. I plan on exploring other sites, but for now it's hard to leave my initial investment in HP.
HP is only an extension for me. In fact, I'm new here and haven't started any hub yet. I write contents for my blog.
You too mwiener. This is a great place to write with a wonderful community.
Hubpages is the right place 4 u if u want any earning for your precious articles.And i also think that this is a really nice community
I am a regular contributor to Homefront Untied Network... A military spouse information and support website. And I recently had an article published with Travel Oregon's website.
I have my own blogger account and have been writing for blogger for 14 months. Now, I have my own website. I hope to start making a little money soon.
So like how long do I need to write to be able to make some money? Just asking..
i have made a little bit of money. It takes time to build up your pageviews and clicks though in order to get money from adsense. The average estimation of how long it will take to get money that is worth it is about 1-2years.
No, bcoz i think that if i work for creating a featured article for 1-2 hours so I must need some money against it and hubpages is the right place
I have blogs, one of which is associated with a You Tube account, and the blog and the videos are advert enabled. I have a blog for my doula work, and others about my interests, and two fictional blogs (I like the blogging format) which are fun. If I set out to make money from a piece of work the creativity seems to drain away from me, so I tend t just write, then see if any of it might be of interest.
I used to work for Triond and Squidoo but get fed up because they are very slow in earning and visitors. For back links Ezinearticles is good but for earning HP is best in all of them.
Hub Pages and Blogger are my first writing cites. I slowed down with my writing goals because of an injury. However, I look forward to the journey.
Thought about it... but wasn't sure I would earn. Definitely not earning here yet though.
Squidoo is good when you're going for a third party branding with interesting content.
Yes! I do write on Wordpress blog but thats not good for earning per se. Sqidoo is a good place to earn too.
after reading about positive reviews of iwriter.com on different websites, i joined the same, two articles of mine were accepted and i earned 4.23 dollars for both, and then two articles were rejected- and the result!! they banned my account...sheer nonsense. yes i cannot login now. I also wrote for triond and the money which comes in is only a few cents after more than 15 articles. it has been an altogether bad experience on both the sites and i have stopped wriitng for both. just trying my luck now with hubpages and blogger
So far this month, I have written 14 hubs on HubPages and 10 posts on blogger.com. The traffic has been about the same, but I like the feedback and community on HubPages.
I love writing as much as reading. I write for Expertscolumn and tried out writing for freelance sites, but still i don't have ultimate satisfaction in writing as i am struggling to find a website which pays me well
i mainly write here in hubpages and in blogspot, and also doing some writing pojects for freelance sites like fiverr. I am still looking for other sites that that where i could write and earn money at the same time.
I love HP and I am sure it is one of the best things happening in the blogging community. I write on blogger also but spend more time here on hub pages. I like the support they give and the way the hub pages community interacts. I am sure to write here for a long time.
Besides hubpages I write for American Chronicle, helium and speakwithoutinterruption.com. It is always good to spread your talent to multiple sites. This widens your exposure and recognition for your talent and expertise.
Yes, I have written for Ezine. I also write a little for my own blog, Celesteinscribed on wordpress. I wrote much of the content for a website called Findtripinfo.com and I write for its blog regularly.
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!
Yes, I have published on WordPress.com and two personal Blogs, and I'm about to sign on with Redgage, but I'm most inclined to write and publish here at Hubpages not only because of the people but I like the way Hubpages is set up. 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.

You wrote about Ezine. What about similar sites?I notice that Ezine has strict requirements, but unlike sites like HubPages it does not demand unique content. Of course, I can't copy and paste a Hub to Ezine because, among other things, it would violate HubPages rules. But can I send the Ezine...

Do you write for sites other than Hubpages?Do you write for other content sites or just Hubpages? How many different sites do you write for and which ones do you like best?

What sites exist that are free to use, that allow writers to create any content (like HP), where you can make money?
by Dani Merrier 3 years ago
I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

Hello everyone,I am new to HubPages and I want to hear how long you have been using HubPages and what your experiences are like using the site? Also, do any of you have your own domain and blog? If so, what is it about? I would love to hear your feedback!Cheers,Charlie

If anyone has written anything on Yahoo Contributor, I would recommend checking out the details. Since non of my articles are "paid to hire" After July 31st I will be able to bring them to Hubpages. Just thought i'd let anyone know who may have work there.
