    Do you think writing on Hubpages has improved your writing skills?

    I know writing on Hubpages has improved my skills, mostly in how I can keep up the endurance to write a lot.  Before I would give up on writing after a month or two.  But for the last five months I have kept up on the Apprenticeship program.  How about you?

    No, but I feel it's given me an outlet that's better than maintaining a blog. I know that when I write on Hubpages it's not for nothing. Someone, even if it's only a few people, will see my hub/answer and find it useful. With a blog, I would have to do more work than I do on here just to get a few hits. Been there, done that and it wasn't for me.

    I didn't write, except for school. I got wonderful grades and comments from my teachers but had never written for fun. I love writing now.

    it helps me a lot! i did not take care of article format when i wrote before. Now, that i want to be always above the standard writing on hub-pages, i keep this attitude wherever i add a few lines to create a blog post or an article!

    Writing here (at HP) has DEFINITELY improved my writing skills.  I look at The Seeder (sci fi, first written in 1998), then at Tam the Tall Tale Teller (western fiction), then at They Walk Among Us  (moving forward sequentially), and the differences are quite noticeable.  The older stuff isn't really rotten or anything, but if I had to buy my own works....

    definitely Yes. writing on hub pages improves your writing skills as it covers various topics of day to day business.It also improves your IQ level by reading views of hub users.improves knowledge on various national and international topics which are also useful in getting useful answers for the topic. A single question is answered by various people in various methods and is useful in solving ;problems.

    I would say that writing on Hubpages over the last seven months or so has helped me develop and improve upon a new way of writing. The basics of writing has always been a strength, but I had no idea of the uniqueness of online writing and all the little things you need to know to succeed. I am still learning something new everyday and have more to master. I just tweaked a couple of my earlier hubs that surprised me when I really looked at them and saw what they needed. Thanks for this good question.

      I always go back and look at my old hubs, and shake my head at how bad they are.  Glad to see others are surprised by the same!
