    Why do you keep writing for Hubpages?

    The content has been declining for years, which has made Hubpages go downhill. Why do you still write here?

    I myself don't write here any longer.  I took most of my content down, mainly because it was being copied and pasted on other sites and not with my permission.  Taking those articles and rewriting them and posting on a different more friendly site that pays better than Hub Pages.  I added a copyriight notices at the end of the new articles, and so far so good.  Still have some of my fiction which I might keep on this site, I hear fiction doesn't really go good on any site, maybe try to publish them through Kindle Publishing

      I once had over 200 hubs, and I am taking mine down and doing the same. Moving them is the best thing for the. Best of luck to you.

      Blog Job.  It's a bit more organized, you can create multiple sites so if you write on different topics you can create a site for each topic

    My content from Squidoo was moved here, so I didn't choose to write for HubPages. I sort of figured I'd give it a try, and see how it went.

    I ended up removing all but 9 of my articles, opting to put them on my own sites. There were just too many hoops, and too many changes that seemed to be reactive rather than proactive. My articles do better on my already established sites.

    I haven't added anything new here in well over a year. I'm waiting to see what happens with the niche sites, but I can see already that some of my remaining articles aren't going to be moved. So, they'll go on my own sites as well.

      I have 8 now, but I once had like 200. Google/ others penalize them for their content, so not sure their niche sites will do much better. While one has great informative articles, we penalized for their antics. Think they will disappear into history

    I gave up a couple of years ago; mainly from personal laziness, but also because, somehow, I felt unwelcome and had a feeling that Poetry and Fictional Prose was being looked down on.
    Also, Google Adsense or whatever they want to call it, let me build up my earnings to about £30 (which is laughably small for the time and effort put in) and then refused to pay it to me because they maintained that I had contravened some petty little rule of theirs. I hadn't, but there was no recourse to "justice".
    Perhaps I'll take my finger out and either write on an established site, or plough my own furrow.
    It would be nice to make some money, but where?

    I don't really have a good reason, but it is definitely not for money. It seems like that in any category there are only several dozen active people. There doesn't seem to be any real viewing from outside the hp box.

    Darn good ?, wish I have an equally good answer. Sorry sad

    The main reason I stay here is my wonderful Fellow-writer friends....I have developed close bonds with several people I met here nearly 5 years ago.  I am as fond of these virtual friends as I am of friends I've been connected with for more than half my life.
    Joining Hubpages to begin with was for me, an outlet for my active & creative muse who definitely must have a special platform to express herself.  I've been a writer for 4 decades & have no desire to ever break away from this vital part of my life.  Hubpages is simply the ideal place for me at this point.
    It's not ever been about the money although I see that as a welcome bonus.  I'm comfortable & happy here most of the time. As poorly as the Team treat their writers, I've learned to rise above the disrespect & neglect.  It only makes me feel closer to my peers & want to express how much I enjoy their work & admire their talents. 
    I foresee remaining here for as long as this site is viable.  I hear the whispering about the probability of HP's approaching demise but choose to not allow it to concern me. What will be, will be.
