A lot really. More friends, followers, fans and above all some name and fame and some quick bucks too. Good visibility on cyber world itself is a good recognition. I even published a poem in this regard in HubPages. I am happy and satisfied. Moreover, it boost my confidence level too.
- My writing standard has improved 1,000%
- I have gained confidence knowing that people actually read and enjoy my work
- It has given me goals to work towards (and achieve) outside of my normal life
- I have learnt so much, about myself and also about the things I research and read
- I gave another place to belong
It has proven to be invaluable, allowing me to share my writing with colleagues, clients, and friends to enhance my brand and private practice. I has also made a dream of becoming a writer come true, thanks to HubPages.
Great question. Writing for me vs. publishing what I write are very different. I write almost daily by journaling. I have several journals as well. Some journal entries could be considered an article, although more loosely written at times. Some may be a short story seeking the inner self as well as poems discovering feelings in flux, conflict, or celebration.
At work I kept a journal on the desk PC and wrote short paragraphs all the time password protected of course. That was a problem solving technique and also used for venting. Sometimes too much is flowing through the mind and concentration diminishes resulting with a blurred focus. Writing it out and expressing both feelings and emotions for the moment allows the hazy fog to lift as a clearer path is discovered.
I giggle because it could be a one liner like "I do not want to do such and such . . ." over and over until ending it with "why?" Then, expanding on why both good reason not to do such and such may arise as well as an alternative solution. The real what, where, when, why, who, how and how much for such and such is brought forth offering opportunity(s) and too good cause for doing such and such. The whole writing process may only take five minutes, yet offer a much more peaceful day of resolve.
Then, there is writing for publishing . . .
i enjoy writing about my daily issues because it is like a release valve. sometimes when i want to argue about a thing, i will write it down and go over it later and you would be surprised of the many arguments that i have avoided because of it.

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story -- Yesterday I was surfing around the web, looking at some blogs that have been...

I am just curious to see if it's a good idea to write short stories on here or if writing different parts of a story and then publishing it? I write a couple of different things but I love to write short stories. Any suggestions? I want to succeed in my writing.

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

Hi, everyone. Thank you in advance for reading; this is a little long-winded.When I was a kid, I loved writing books. I'd sit at the computer for hours, typing. I knew I was going to be a writer one day. Even my elementary school teacher said I had talent. When I was 22 I got a publishing contract...

Is it really viable to let anyone and everyone join HubPages? As hubs are now quality checked, why not make the first hub a test to see if they can join. It is obvious from hub hopping that people with little writing ability are publishing hubs. Surely they could be denied access to further...
