I wrote a *satire on the state of human health today. I know if I publish it on HubPages it won't be picked for Healdove as it is not scientific, nor for Remedygrove because it doesn't promise to cure anything. It would, however, fit perfectly well on a humor/satire site.
Have any of you got articles lurking around that would fit on a site full of instructive laughter?
Do you think it would be a good idea to have such a site that caters for satire based on facts?
*Satire = the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices.
I would like to see that too. One of my satire/humor articles is on Letterpile, but it doesn’t get many views. I thought it might go to AxleAddict since it was about silly ways to save fuel. Maybe there should be a Funnybone niche.
My daughter is writing a satire piece for school. I have been helping her. I love it. I am thinking about writing one for HP. Fingers crossed.
One of my best pieces is a satire piece and because it's not on a satire site, people too often take it seriously and attack me even though it warns that it's satire in a couple of different places. I think a Satire/comedy site could have some benefits for that reason. I get tired of getting called names and being insulted by dumb people who can't read but need to be chronically offended by something.
I've had that happen, too. I, too, have resorted to putting disclaimers in some of mine for the humorously impaired readers. There are actually quite a few articles in the humor section of Letterpile. Hopefully they will consider creating a new niche.
"Chronically offended" is a superb phrase. You capture some Zeitgeist, I think.
One of the most effective ways to tackle today's insane world is by speaking its own insane language. That is why a humor site would be a great asset for the HubPages network. A humor site would bring some fun and joy into the network and it would also help to expose insanity and thereby hopefully change the world (a little bit maybe).
Any Ideas for a suitable domain name?
These are available:
Sub-categories could contain articles and videos on:
Weirdst Conspiracy Theories
Marriage and Relationships Humor
Getting Old Humor
Consumer Affairs Humor
Crazy Fitness Gadgets
Any more out of my box ideas?
Satirely.com would be OK maybe but what about other funny articles and videos that are not satire, just take the p**s out of serious issues?
laughabley.com is available
That's where they are landing, but Letterpile is too broad. Humor, satire and funniness should have a site of it's own. I have an article about "writing humor" that landed on HobbyLark. -- Do they think we do this for fun???, Well, we do, but also other reasons.

What's the point in keeping us from linking to our own work in our articles? That's how we increase traffic to our articles!

LetterPile, as best I can figure from the examples shown and the subcategories, is only for original works of creative writing, such as short stories, poems, memoir essays, and so on. I like LetterPile as it is. There is no vertical or niche site at HubPages about the writing life, and that seems...

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the topics I write on the way I write on them so I'll likely need new homes for all...

I recived a note from HubPages an article is eligible for a niche site. The notes at the bottom stated to check grammar. I have done corrections using grammarly and one other editing software. The question is do I wait for them to review or do I go through the process of submitting to a niche site?
