How do you determine the value of your writing? And whether or not to publish in an online community like HP - I mean...writing is meant to be shared but from the standpoint of wanting to (eventually) earn a living from writing, how much should I publish online?
What I'm trying to decide is this: Would I be better off working on writing stories or continuing to focus my writing energies on HubPages? (HP gets 75% of my writing energy & my book gets most of the rest)
I'm not interested in learning SEO, marketing, or any of that stuff - I accept I'm not a salesperson. My original purpose in joining HP was to gain experience with writing, exposure and practice with different modes of writing. I also saw HubPages as a good place to refer prospects to check out my writing style.
I'm not thinking of leaving, just about rearranging my priorities. Any thoughts?
You could particpate in the manuscript critique circle and other author promotion programs established by Fiction Factory and myself here on HubPages. HubPages is a great place to develop your writing, and the community of serious aspiring authors is growing stronger every day.
Fiction Factory has a couple of hubs about the manuscript circle, and I am pretty much working to help authors full-time these days. Thanks for asking.
I do almost no back linking, marketing, SEO research or the like, and I was just a handful of dollars short of $600 in my earnings last month. Really strong Hub writing can pay off.
Can you get your Hubs to the point where they afford you more time to work on your other writing? Or if you buckle down and write your novel, will that then make you enough money that you can afford to then play with your Hubs more?
I'm understanding my hubs wont make me much money for quite some time...because they aren't 'sales' oriented, rather more creative writing type. It isn't the earning potential I'm thinking about, it's the value behind what I'm writing (as in threat of being copied and/or plagiarized).

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...

Was wondering if you all think HubPages is a good networking tool for someone seriously seeking publication or whether it actually hurts your chances more than it helps them? ( some places will not accept submissions that have been published elsewhere) Have any of you been published since you...

After being away for a while, I want to get back to writting Hubs. I started a blog but life has gotten in the way of it (an a few other things). Anyway, like I was saying... I have a slew of ideas I want to write about but am unsure of where to publish them. On HubPages or on my blog? How do you...

How much time do you spend on HubPages daily?On average do you spend 1 hour, 2 hours, or more? Do you spend all day every day? I ask because I find I can easily spend all day on HubPages interacting with this great community!
