We are here to post writings on hubpages and grab some earning as well,but we never realize what are the real purpose of hubpages,is it to increase earnings in adsense or just a normal page to post your writing skill?I found a hub written by our members about how he deny others on negative feedback about hubpages!This post is to have a real feedback from all hubbers what hubpages had done to their writings even life.Post one positive reason why you like hubpages!
the 'space' to write, of course....and the great sense of community here...
I don't think I've run into anything on HubPages that I don't like.
The HubPages Staff continues to make adjustments, from community suggestions and making a great experiences for all sorts of writers.
The HubPages Community continues to provide support and compassion for the new hubbers. They continue to assist new writers to get their feet wet and give great advice.
It's a great place.
I agree, I have yet to encounter something I don't like. I know some find the political and religious forums OTT but when I am bored there is usually some funny reading in those forums (just don't get to far drawn into the mayhem). I love the opportunity for learning, I have learned so much since I started writing here and know that there are more things yet to learn
I agree with you it is a great place to know more about the world and hangout as well!
A lot of very interesting and intelligent people. A good place to write. Better than most. And people have been "discovered" for their writings here. For example, Associated Press developed a story for national release based on one of my hubs. Others have received publishing contracts as a result of publishing here.
For me it's not about the money. It's a creative outlet I enjoy a lot.
1. Agreed, MOW, the space to write
2. Like reading other hubbers hubs which are so informative or have great recipes
3. I made money and want to make more (Thanks Nelle!). Interestingly enough, my first payout came from Amazon not adsense. In fact I still have to wait for adsense, but that's okay.
4. It's a good group of hubbers, but you do have to be selective when it comes to interacting in the forums.
Agree with all this and also there is lots of free advice from experienced SEO experts and Internet marketeers ..
I come here for a few minutes a day to have fun
I am not a writer and that is quite apparent
I'm not here to make money and don't think I'm that creative so I really don't know if I fit in here with all you great, creative writers...But like I said "I'm here to have fun" and so far everyone has been very nice to me, which is always a plus
I feel at home here
I enjoy the great reads
I also enjoy the humor - in hubs & the forums
You don't need to find purpose for hubpages participation, purpose will find you. So child just concentrate on backlinks.
sordid attention seekers compromising their writing with shameless commerciality, arguing, bullying and making each other cringe with useless posting on forums, in other words:
FUN FUN FUN!
can't live without it!
HubPages is a medium to write with somewhat of a community although, most likely very normal, it is dividing which is too bad.
But for writing, it offers descent creative choices to create hubs, but also limiting, an opportunity to featre your work for more exposure, a scoring sytem based on many element for author score and hub score, a personal profile page so we each may choose how we want to present ourselves. Distant company involvement. I believe they stay hidden to allow us the freedom to develop without intimidation. Fair with their rules in my opinion and do let a lot of things slide, until it deservingly requires disciplinary action. We are provided with corporate blogs, hubber interviews and a weekly newspaper which also carries our weekly traffic and movement.
A place able to comment on others work which always feels just as good as receiving feedback in comments on our own work.
Bottom line, as I ramble, HubPages is a writing site that is continually improving for the better and is a nice place to produce work and hope to meet a few friends to converse with along the way.
It's set up is professionally and displays a produced variety of work published, which is inspirational.
I really like the community here and it is a great platform for getting your work read.
Its wide open space to write.
As Kimberly stated, the community is dividing, but in real human life, are you compatible with every person you meet to become a friend? No, and its no different here in the forums, everyone will not be compatible with each other.
If I'm correct, the forums were started for people to help each other out with writing and how to maneuver through Hubpages and ask questions of those who are experienced. I think it has evolved more into a social forum and then there will always be division.
Well said Jane.
I think HubPages is a place for connection. Humans need to be connected to each other to experience joy. Joy is a condition needed to survive as illness is "disease", which breaks down to "not at ease"
Connection with others puts us at ease for the most part, even when we must differ with each other.
Hubpages is a community in which we can build relationships and learn so much from each other so I think Faybe Bay hit on this in one word - connection.
Hubpages not only gives me the opportunity to write on several subjects it also has hubs on so many topics it is easy to learn everything you need to be successful all in one place.
Excellent site IMO
Just when I thought I was addicted to facebook, I found Hubpages! I just love everything about it!
The community aspect is a great boon. Writing, whether in journals that no one sees, commercially for commissions or freelance from home with specific assignments, can be a very solitary affair.
Hubpages is a place where it doesnt have to be.
Not being one who has a really good grip on technology , I was searching for a medium to express my thoughts and to say what I felt was Important to me personally. I was looking for a blog and Hubpages was the first place I came upon in my search.
I have found it user friendly and quite fun. Some are here to make money , some are here just to write. I fall in the latter category. In the process my writing is slowly improving and I am now making friends around the globe and here stateside. I hope to meet all of them one day. It has been a joyous process for me. How can that be bad ?
I have only just arrived on hub pages and I have read through many threads and comments.....I notice in some threads that some people appear to think they have some right to police the threads...this is a big negitive for me......and will most likely determine if I stay or not.....I have read the hub pages rules and they appear fine.....so why are there so many small minded people trying to impose their own rules......one cant say that this is a free space to write if you have people trying to impose their own rules.......I have also seem on other forum where people use the flag/report tool to bully people they dont like or disagree with.....I will wait and see before I pass judgement on hub pages
What I think about HubPages? Well, I stumbled on the HubPages by accident, read some of the hubs and found that I really enjoyed the diversity of the website.
I write hubs with no specific goal in mind. I don't want to write “how tos” or “self-helps“ or get the greatest exposure and “make money” with my hubs. I just want a voice and an outlet for some of the poetry I’d been writing.
Whether anybody else is interested in what I have to say or cares about what I write is irrelevant to me. This is something I do for myself and it's completely selfish.
I've only just recently started going into the forums. In the past when I would venture in, I often found the threads and comments so confusing that my head would hurt.

Is Hubpages losing popularity?I know that back in September Hubpages views and therefore, peoples profiles took a major dive. I read that writers were leaving Hubpages in droves. Are there significantly less writers here? Is it regaining popularity?

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...

Maybe it's that we authors aren't active on the forums, but it seems like Hubpages isn't thriving behind the scenes these days. Do you think HP is a sinking ship?

I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...

This forum has no ongoing moderation, so people are likely to emerge into passive-aggressive banter, or attack or defense mode. Without intervention these behaviors are rather common, if not typical to the human being.

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...
