    Hubbing.  HubPages is not a blogging site.

    Stacie's right - there is a difference.

    Blogging is perfect when you already have an audience, and that audience knows you well enough personally to read whatever you have to say. If you want to blog about how your day went, or how much you can't wait to see your cousin at family reunion, or about who's the better presidential candidate, then a blog is a perfect repository for those kinds of thoughts. Your audience knows you and might be interested. Purely personal matters and opinions about the news are perfect for blogs. But strangers might not care one bit about your opinions on things, which is why blogs tend to get very, very little traffic from search engines.

    Hubbing, on the other hand, is written for anyone searching for information, and should be written in a way that does not require that person to know who you are to make sense of it. You don't need to know Stacie at all to find her Hub on how to knit a scarf incredibly useful. This is an example of evergreen content.

    Evergreen content has the benefit of being much more attractive to searchers, and also translates to higher click-through rates on ads. Long-time Hubbers can tell you that great quality evergreen Hubs attract healthy traffic from Google, Yahoo and MSN/Live and that traffic translates to AdSense earnings.
