    I would like to apply for today or very soon. However, I heard you need a writing sample. Can I show them one of my hubs that I wrote on hubpages and perhaps my profile itself?

      Never heard of brighthub before.  I'm surprised they couldn't think of a more original name.  Anyone here had any experience there?  Interesting to know how you get on David!

        I'm one of the Content Editors over there and I also write for them. I think WryLilt writes there as well.

        Their systems can be a bit difficult to figure out at first, but then it's easy to work with them. Most channels are some up-front pay and then RevShare.

      Yes, you can use one of your hubs. I don't remember whether you can simply give them a link or whether you need to copy/paste it. It goes to the head office where they do a quick yes/no first before they pass it along to the Managing Editor of the channel for a final decision, so it could be a week or two before you hear anything back, btw.

      Do you want me to look over what you're going to submit and do a quick edit job on it if needed? I'd be happy to help. If yes, just message me through my profile.

    I also have some content at BrightHub and cant say the application process was at all difficult. Its been about a year since I had any involvement though.

    and to the "original name" commenter - BrightHub has had the domain name since 1999, i suspect you felt it was similar to HubPages, but it would be the reverse.

      I'm registered there, but didn't send any content ! I just never get around to it. I thought that they pay $10 per article.

        Yes, they pay $10 an article, but I heard they eventually pay 15 if they deem you a good writer or something on certain niches.

        This might be a good site, hopefully it will be one that I will consistently write on like hubpages.
