    Sorry to be conceited, but I have to take this opportunity to mention my 5th anniversary on HubPages.
    HubPages has been a fantastic opportunity for me to learn from others and teach what I know. I started at the beginning of my college career, and it's become a sizeable part of my life. I recommend it to people who want to kick-start their writing career, or make some extra money.
    I can remember when I started and I looked up to Hubbers like Robin, Jimmy the Jock, and Moonmaiden. I wrote my first few Hubs on marmosets and Christmas. My Christmas Hub got a comment from a soldier serving in the Middle East who was away from home during the holiday - he told me that my Hub made him feel like I was at home, and from that moment I knew that HubPages was more than scores and revenue.
    For anyone who is starting or is considering starting, I heartily encourage you to give it a shot. I feel like you get what you put into it, and considering I've invested 5 years into it, I feel so satisfied and ready for more Hubbing!

    How does make money on here? I know tons of people who are good writers here who have been here over a year or more and haven't made any...
