I am very new to hubpages... ie I made my page a hour or so ago... what are some good tips for using hubpages as a blogging site.. i wish to do a day to day blog regarding the diagnosis of my daughters very rare genetic condition and how we work through it to hopefully help others
Welcome to hub pages Sunny. First of all you cannot really use hub pages for blogging it is more for article writing. You could write articles about your daughters condition i.e what it is what are they symptoms e.tc e.tc In regards to blogging you could always sign up at Google blogger for a blogging site then at the end of each week compile the seven blogs into a weekly digest if you know what i mean, and publish it here at hub pages. Hope this helps.
HubPages is not a blogging site. My best tip would be to go to a blogging site if that's what you are really trying to do.
The site does maintain a blog, which keeps users informed on new developments, but Hubs are not blog entries, and purely personal content gets flagged and unpublished for being "low-quality."
You should read the FAQ, as it covers a lot of what the site is and isn't.
Sunny, this Hub might help explain what HubPages is for:
I don't agree 100% with the advice to start your own blog, though. It may be easier to write, but it's also less likely to get noticed by anybody!
If you want to reach an audience, HubPages is a good way to do it, but you'd need to write articles about the condition, not diary-style blog posts. Imagine you're writing a series of articles for a magazine,for instance. Each Hub needs to be a full-scale article (at least 400 words).
Welcome to HubPages, however, you should know that HubPages is not a blogging site. It's primarily a site for writers, and to earn money writing articles on a wide variety of topics.
I would suggest you read a lot of other "hubs", as the articles are called on HubPages, and get better feel for how Hub Pages works. Check out the forums as well.
You may find this is not the best platform for a day by day blog style of writing.
Welcome to Hubpages
It is not a blogging site. I would suggest you go to the learning center and read the faq & then type in something of interest to you in the search bar and start reading "articles" which we call "hubs"
Then what is hubblog in the training area about... the hubpages staff are holding a exhibit there????
Welcome to HubPages Sunny.Reid! We're so happy to have you.
The hubbers above are right- HubPages is not a blogging site, but I think you can still find it is a great resource and outlet for your writing. As Super Chef pointed out, "You could write articles about your daughters condition i.e what it is what are they symptoms e.tc e.tc" and these articles could compliment your blogging on another site- perhaps one of the sites Relache recommended.
To see how your blog and HubPages can work together, check out this Learning Center guide and video: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/back … from-blog/
Basically, HubPages is for helpful articles - a place to post your findings, research, guides, etc... related to your daughter's condition, and blogging sites are a place to record day-to-day happenings.
Why keep on with HubPages? Because the guides you write can be an invaluable tool for others going through the same thing as you and your daughter- and via comments and the forums, you may find that you get a lot of support and encouragement!
Hope that helps

I guess they pay 70% of Adsense revenue to writers and you can write posts as short as Tweets or long as a Web article. Whatever length you want in other words. Earnings all depend on traffic: And I'm guessing mostly on...
