    I have looked around the forum and I can't really get a handle on a definitive answer to this so I thought I would just ask.
    Is it ok to post hubs that are completely opinion pieces or rants, sort of like an editorial on a topic or issue?

    Nothing vulgar or inappropriate, just from a first person perspective. I could add the news capsule. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    thanks,
    kyriana

      I've certainly written my share of rants!  They're not $ earners, but some are very popular anyway and it's great sometimes to just get things off my chest!

      I love commentaries and editorials, even rants, as long as they're well-written, balanced, and don't contain an overly opinionated or "whiny" tone smile

    Yes.  And if it's well-written and funny, so much the better.

    Absolutely. Hubpages may often look like a personalized, niche-targeted version of Wikipedia, but long rants expressing your opinion will certainly be welcomed by this reader.

    If you write great opinion pieces and you are known for it. That would be awesome.

    No question is dumb.  Not asking is...dumber???  More dumb?  Yes, go for it, two of my fav's are Carolina Muscle and SomeLikeItScott, both of which hubbers get their opinions out there, in a very good way.  SomeLikeItScott does this thing in his hubs..."Don't Get Me Started!"...and every time, I know just what he means.

    I would suggest you write a rant about the evils of christianity.Many of the most successful and popular hubbers started out this way.You will find the light hearted banter surrounding this topic a great way to gain followers and attract monetary rewards. Happy ranting Kyriana.

      lol lol This reminds me of a game you can play: Ways To Mislead Tourists. 

      "When boarding a London Underground train, it is customary to hug everyone in the carriage and tell them you love them."

        Great game Empress.I always informed visitors to London that tourists were exempt from queuing at bus stops,supermarkets etc and encouraged them to push to the front of the Queue.You could ask for other contibutions in one of the forums and write a hub on this. In fact you could write a guide book for every single country.The world needs this essential info.

          The New Statesman got there before me, apparently:

          http://www.newstatesman.com/2007/07/com … e-tourists

          Check it out - it's hilarious.  "The statue of Eros is the erotic centre of London. Join in the fun by stripping off and asking people to have sex with you."

    You can write about anything you like. However, I would suggest reading the TOS for Google Adsense(if you plan on earning) and HubPages, so as to not write something that violates the rules.

    Other than that, feel free to rant away as much as you like. wink
