I want to start an online journal that i can share, can i do that with hubpages??
As WE says, you can use HubPages as a blog but it's not designed for that.
I wrote a Hub explaining in more detail:
Blogger (easiest to use). Can move to Wordpress, if you need more power/features later.
A blog is better suited for this purpose. You can get a free blog from Wordpress or Blogger. A blog is easier for you to update and for your readers to follow, compared with HubPages.
But if you want to use HubPages for this purpose, you can. On your profile page, you will find a link to your RSS feed. Your readers can subscribe to this feed, which will keep them up to date about your latest hubs.
If you go this route, you could make a new hub every week, then keep updating that. One each day might be a bit unrealistic, unless you have a lot to say.
Yes you can use Hubpages, but as they said, it's much better to use a blog.
A blog elsewhere can be used to link to your HP site to help generate traffic. Promoting both sites will help bring traffic and hopefull generate $ for your HP site too good luck!
Yep, a blog really is the way to go. If you can afford your own domain name and hosting, WordPress is the way to go. If not, Blogger (www.blogger.com) is free and easy to use. Good luck with it!
I think a blog is definitely the way to go. You might want to look at Tumblr and Posterous. They are both very easy to set up and use. Posterous is great because you can just post to it from your email. I post to it from my phone a lot. It's neat.

So, quite recently some hubbers declared that they might venture out to create their independent, 100% 'all cash goes to the author's pocket' blogs using Blogger or WordPress. I just figured out, after checking some blogs on both those platforms, that they might face one little problem, it's...

... when most of your content is on Hubpages?I noticed that recently a few of the Hubpages regulars have gotten together on Blogger for a joint project. What are the advantages of using Blogger as an ancillary site, when you have most of your content on Hubpages?

I recently set up several blogger blogs to promote and provide backlinks for my hubs. I've been updating the blogs everyday so google will like them. Most of the outgoing links on my blogger blogs are to my hubs...will google dislike me for that?

Hi Everyone -I'm almost in the market for a new blogging site, but before I make the final decision to leave the site I currently use (Blogger) I thought I should get some opinions on other sites and see what else is available. The reason I am considering leaving Blogger: Whenever I select...

I just noticed five of my hubs getting unfeatured due to traffic. I was expecting this for some time now since I never really got a lot of traffic in the first place. I've joined HubPages less than a year ago, didn't even start writing for the first month, so I was pleasantly surprised...

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...
