I had been participating in a writers forum when another member mentioned Hub Pages. I went to take a look. Since I had several articles that I had previously written for a print newspaper, and still had the rights, I decided to recycle some of them. That's how I started.
I had just quit my job and was looking for ways to make money while I stayed home with my toddler. Ran across them in a Google search and gave it a go. Glad I did, all these years later. They made me think I could make it as a writer and though I have others income sources, I will always remember my first platform.
I found it thru an ad on Monster.com. I had previously been writing CD reviews for a music e-zine but they had just closed up shop, and I was left with a few pieces that I never had a chance to send in to them... so I said "what the heck," signed up at HP and posted'em. The rest is history, as they say.
As for me, I tried to search for ways to earn online and found HubPages. I tried signing up and discovered that I need a google adsense approved before I can start earning. But I have come to love the system here so I am still here. It's fun.
I think I was googling a different paid writing website and HubPages was mentioned in an article about it. I had been disheartened by ehow because of how strict they were with their formatting. And HP provided a more laid-back alternative.
I'm very interested in Japanese anime and was searching for info about Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. This is when I came across well written articles on HubPages about these. I also had an interest in writing. Both these interests were overlapping and so I joined HubPages.

I have created a pitiful 29 hubs in four years. But I'm a lot more active on facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Search. You people MUST LIVE ON HERE! How in the world do you find subjects for crying out loud? You must be just writing for writing sake. In order to write something, I have to FEEL IT,...

Now that I have gotten up to 100 hubs, I've noticed something that slows me down and is turning linking into a burden. Unless you remember exactly how you titled a hub (more specifically, unless you remember the first word of the hub title) finding the right hub to link to can be kind of time...
