I have tried a few but they are either too difficult to understand how to get started, or just plain not as good as Hubpages.
I have did a little research on the following: Info barrel, Squidoo and Redgage. In addition I have heard good things about them from other hubbers. From what I am hearing so far, Info barrel appears to be the favorite and is very similar in ways to hubpages, but in my opinion not as user friendly.
Go for squidoo.
You do not need adsense account as well to earn from their.
That is also helpful community like of hubpages.
My favorite is InfoBarrel. I also like posturown.com, seekyt.com, and a few others. I used to like Xomba, but I really don't get their new direction at all.
I've never used blogspot, but I do hear good things of it. You keep all the revenue, from what I understand, so there's not a split like there is on all the other rev sharing sites.
Another site that got a lot of attention is wizzley, but I haven't actually contributed anything there.
There's Excerptz, InfoBarrel, ThisIsFreelance, Snipsly and Pubwages too. And I would be remiss if I didn't also mention WriterParty since I own it, but it's brand new so it is less written on than the above ones.
Here is a list of some that I know about:
An alternative to blogger blogspot is Weebly they allow you to add adsense to your pages.
I just found this site called everythingmom.com that gives 100% google adsense revenue on blogs related to parenting.
Then these are the other ones:
A fellow hubber wrote a hub with a bigger list you might want to check it out its called 101 Google AdSense and Revenue Sharing Sites by AndyCorby
I love Seekyt. It's not as big or loud as Hubpages, but it's simple, friendly and it has a lot of potential. Whatever site you choose, you'll need some getting used to it and you'll have to write a certain base of articles before you can expect to start earning from them.
The 30 Days Challenge on Seekyt begins in October. Maybe that would be a nice start for you
RitePad & InfoBarrel are the only ones I am using these days in addition to HP!
There is one by name Helium. Another site by name webanswers where you get revenue by answering questions.
Then we have the premium site about.com. If you pass through there rigorous qualifying criteria you get a fixed monthly payout and some variable pay.
Helium is the worst ever site.
They are totally non-transparent about earnings. I get less than $1 per month for the 29 articles I put on there before discovering HP. It also has a "community" of snide, smug and self-satisfied people who gang up on anyone who dares utter any criticism.
What is more, once an article is on Helium, you are limited in how you can edit it and you cannot remove it if you find a better place for the content.
If anyone is interested, I've compared Helium and HP on a blog post. If you go to my profile, there is a link to my WriteAngled Witters blog, where you will find it.
Oh ! Thanks WriteAngled for the feedback. I've registered with Helium but never got around publishing an article there. Somehow once you are used to Hubpages interface it is becoming difficult to adjust to others !!!
Yes, I have 50 articles on Helium and it is quite frankly a rubbish site. They get these 'mentors' to email you ever so often telling you how great an article you have written etc and promise new writing opportunities. I thought it was ever so slightly cultish. As far as I know Google pulled out of a proposed news writing contract as Helium had sub-standard content.
I will check out your blog post comparing HP and H
I have heard many mixed feelings about Helium. I do not like Blogger either and I know that is a very popular site. I just find the set up weird and hard to understand.
I hate to say it, but at the moment I am earning far more from WebAnswers than from HP, despite the fact I've been here for nearly 2 years and have only been properly active there for about one month. It takes about 5 minutes to submit an average answer as opposed to hours and hours to produce a hub (at least for me).
Having been on Helium yourself and active here as well, I doubt you will find any new information in my comparison! I wrote it for people who did not know much about either or one or other of the sites. However, thank you for taking the trouble to read it, if you do. Any comments giving more information will be highly appreciated.

Anyone on Hubpages writing for pleasure and not Adsense revenue?Most hubbers here are writing for earnings. Anyone on Hubpages solely for the pleasure of it?

I used to use the revenue to pay bills, but am now living back at home with my parents so my bills are much smaller. I plan on using my revenue to move to California where I can get a higher paying job and hopefully have more time to produce more hubs. It'll take a bit of money to do that so I've...

Does anyone know why google adsense would disaprove an application?I am having trouble getting my ad program in place.

...did you see all those new Google commercials on TV! Very sophisticated commercials and obviously paid for by the money they saved after Penderising Hubpages!!!
