    1.  It is very easy, convenient platform to express yourself .
    2.  I have learnt a lot of new techniques at HubPage.
    3.  I can meet highly intelligent human beings across the globe.
    4.  It is treasurer of knowledge. One can acquire and share the knowledge.
    5.  HP finds favors with search engines and search engines like contributors at HubPages too.

    After my own blog it is my first love in the virtual beautiful world.

    The online writing that I do in my spare/skimmed time is all kind of my own experiment with writing different types of stuff that I feel like writing, and even approach to the Internet, rather than stuff that somebody else is paying me to write.  Because of that I only have so much time and use pretty much most of that time to write or do things associated with that writing.  If/when I get sick of either "real work" or else taking online writing seriously I do take a break and go to the forums (or "Answers" section) to get my mind on something different.

    Originally I liked this site because it offered a little more flexibility than a lot of other sites did.  I started making money on here, still liked the site, and so had no reason to stop coming back.  I don't generally socialize online, but since I do stuff on HP anyway and since the community stuff is here anyway, it's just kind of convenience, laziness/indifference about what else is out there, and habit that makes this site handy (as long I've kept earning decent enough money too, because without earning a certain amount each month things become less convenient, I become less indifferent, and habit then needs to be broken.

    Until now, and for my purposes and aims, I've found this to be one of the better sites "of this nature", particularly for the person who wants flexibility with regard to how much "community stuff" he does.

    Besides, recently I haven't taken as many "real work" projects as I'd had before, and I HAVE had lots of particularly inconvenient snow and ice; which means I've had more time to find myself bored (but not in the mood to do yet more on any of my own projects).  Since I'm already familiar with this site it seems like as good a one as any to kill a little boredom on.   smile   smile   I'm not really someone to do "just nothing at all".  I like to think there's a shred of use/redeeming value to how I spend even my "down" time.

    It is addictive.  I get positive reinforcement.the money is attractive and I want to be a writer when I grow up.

    Exposure to the outside world keeps me posting my efforts here.  I want the practice, but I also need to know if anyone will read my work or care to.  The feedback here is very inspirational. I tend to understand which ones can use more work or are not popular topics by the views and feedback I get. This a very friendly community and the opinion of other wannabe writers is important to me.

    Hub Pages offers a sense of "community" that I feel is missing from some of the other "communities." The format of the articles is simple, and it's very easy to provide commentary either from reading an article, responding to a question, joining in a forum discussion, and so on. It's easy to get to know other writers, and there are some very "impressive" folk with strong writing skills who write for Hub Pages. I like reading profiles and finding sincere and honest people who just want to help others and to share their insights, knowledge, and/or wisdom.

    I also enjoy that I can write on a variety of topics and discover readers for just about any topic. There is a lot to love about Hub Pages.

    It's better than facebook and blogging. More earning potential!

      I don't dislike FB, but I need "more." If I'm going to spend time online reading and writing, I want it to be a more meaningful experience for me and others.
