Through a guy on the Warrior forum. A great guy too.
He was selling a $30 eBook that was about earning on-line the free and easy way.
At the time, i had just applied for Paypal and was waiting for approval (or is it confirmation?), and couldn't meet the last day of sale. I asked him if i could have some kind of extension till my PP becomes active.
But guess what? he gave me the ebook for free and told me not to tell. I cant mention his name, but his book was so great, a step by step guide.
I wrote some lenses and hubs and told him to tell me how i was doing, and he gave me further advice.
He brought me to where i am today. I bet he is here on Hubpages, and ive searched for his name, but no luck. Probably has a different user name, and he hasn't been at the WF for a couple of years now.
Thank you XXX. If you are here, please send me a PM
After a erm... painful experience with Fiber One bars, I googled the deviant plastic-wrapped creations and discovered Shadesbreath's Hub on his own experiences. In complete sympathy at his sufferings I created an account (not realizing you could comment without one?) and wrote a commiserating reply. He liked it and encouraged me to join. So here I am. It's a good story. I tell it at parties.
I followed a link on Craigslist to a controversial hub. Made quite a few comments there, then found the forums and that was fun, too.
Eventually signed up to write my own controversial hub and see what happened - not much.
Two months later, saw something in the forums about making money on HP. The rest of the sordid history can be seen in 124 hubs...
I was researching photography and discovered a hubbers photo hubs and then got hooked...
Quite by accident.
I was looking for interesting sites for young people, typed some assortment of words into Google, and up popped a link to Hub Pages.
Made an account (thinking that you had to if you wanted to comment) and told the author of the website hub that I really liked her article.
I figured that since I had an account, I might as well see what this place was all about. Glad I did.
Looking to earn money online, read about Adsense first and somewhere it suggested using Hubpages as a platform to earn with Adsense... a long time ago lol
I was just digging around a year or so ago and thought it was interesting. I remembered it a few months ago and signed up. It's working out so far. Most people are helpful and patient, and you can read other people's opinions on just about anything.
Shear luck. I was looking for a writing job, then I tried out for some local online paper. It didn't pan out and there was some talk from that place about Hubpages. So here I am.
I was looking to promote my website <link snipped>
and came across with hub pages, bloggers, ezinearticles etc. I was not actively engaged on hub pages until recently. Now I love here.
I joined based on a recommendation from my friend Bardofely here on HP. Thanks to him I have now been here three years and earned a reasonably good amount of money for a part time income
I stumbled on this website by accident, when I searched Google for writing and ghostwriting jobs.
From craigslist. HP had run an ad looking for writers who wanted to make money online.
I had just become a stay-at-home mom, and I was looking for some work online that I could do from home. I stumbled across HP in a review of freelance sites.
I had been interested in writing a book but was having trouble tying the chapters together in a cohesive manner. I decided to take a course at the local junior college. After explaining my dilemma to the instructor she asked me if I had ever considered simply writing articles. That led to me searching online for places to write articles. I stumbled on someone's article about writing for HubPages. Before that 6 weeks class was over I think I had already published about 5-10 articles and made my first 14 cents. That was over 3 years ago.
Like Sally's Trove, I also found out about HP from writers wanted ad on craigslist.
I did a search on how to hard boil an egg perfectly and found a hub on it. I was intrigued by hubpages and within a few weeks I created an account.
I wrote a hub about how I found it - I saw an ad on Facebook. Glad I saw the ad!
I was very active over at Squidoo and beleived everyone in the forums who said Squidoo was best - however, curiosity got the better of me and I haven't looked back since!
I found HubPages by surfing my internet. I was reading an article and I saw that the author was from HubPages. I decided to comment and I started to read more articles. I was writing on a previous post and that relationship was not positive to say the least. I wanted to continue to write so there was HubPages and it has been quite an amicable relationship!
I was so lucky to have stumbled on it while surfing the net for the best revenue sharing site.

I've noticed that some people on here are making money from Hubpages and then also from other websites, like their own. Is it worth it to make my own website?Here is what I've collected so far:Pros:*Keep all the adsense/affiliate revenue*Not have to worry about spending a bunch of time on one site...

There are so many of us who write fiction, and we're stuck with Amazon, itunes, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, etc, all of which have their own difficulties.I would really like a formula in the hubpages tradition where every author has their own site, plus the ability to upload their books and sell...

I started using traffup a while back as it was recommended by a no. of different hubbers. It can definitely get you some quick page views although i don't think they tend to be quality traffic. Noticed an automatic warning on my hubs the other day about 'not using a traffic exchange to get traffic...

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have about how my article looks here at Hub Pages by comparison. When I delete...

I've been trying to make up a hub page for the last few days but whenever i try it i get told I'm doing something wrong, I attempt to change things but i get the same old nonsense.I've got better things to do with my life without messing about trying to satisfy the whim of some unknown censor....
