    Have you ever thought of creating a HubPages for the younger ones?  I have a child that is very upset that she doesn't have a place like I have to publish her writings and share them like we all do.  In fact she loves to set and watch me Hub and read many of the articles.  My son does, too.  Just a thought that has been recurring lately.

    What is the required age to have an account on Hubpages?  I know on Squidoo it is 18.  So, my daughter can't have her own account there, but she creates lenses under my account.  She is 10 and has a lot of fun with it.   I haven't introduced her to Hubpages yet. smile

    You could probably do something similar here, though, I would think. 

    p.s. Sorry to keep bringing up Squidoo in the forums, but I am just more familiar with that platform.  LOL!

      I did publish one of my daughters here.  I thought of just doing that going forward.  But then they miss out on their peers looking at and commenting on their works.  There is so much creativity out there and I don't want her to wait till she is as old as I am before finding some fun with writing.

    I came to know from HP blog that HP is encouraging children to publish their project work here on HP. It's a policy matter and HP has to think about its resources to have either a different section for kids or a site for kids. However, hubbers can publish webpages related to kids.

    HubKids could be something interesting. Have everything that HubPages has just without the affiliate options, since that is the main reason for the 18 and older in the TOS, I believe. You ahve be 18 to have a paypal account, and 18 to sign up for affiliates. If it were possible to do a non-affiliate site for kids, that would be interesting, but it would pose concern of spammers trying to publish adult matter on the site that is geared for kids.

    There are many sites out there that cater to younger writers. To have a different hubpages for kids would require constant overseeing to keep spammers and pedos out.

    One site I was at a few months ago is a great site for kids who write. They encourage creativity in writing and watch over everything very well. Only members are allowed to post comments. If you're interested, just let me know and I will email you the link.

          Got it.  Thanks.  I'll take a look at it and see what my daughter thinks about it.

    Everyone who registers to Hubpages should be 18.  Everyone who posts a hub should be 18.  Though, personally I wish there was an "adult" version of Hubpages that allowed pornographic content.  Said it before, I'll say it again, that an adult Hubpages would provide a place for all the "sexy Tamil hottie auntie" hubs to be pushed off, and allow for different types of monetization as well.

    Eh.  What'm I saying? Heh.  I love Hubpages the way it is, even though I don't like sexy actress picture gallery hubs.

      I agree with HubPages needing to be 18 and older. I think that it would be pretty cool for sister sites for kids (under 18) and another for adult content, as you've suggested with another form of monetization.

      It would be pretty cool to see HubPages expand. I think there is so much that could be done with sisters sites related to HP. Make HP more money and create websites for all types of people who want to express all sorts of things. Granted it would be a lot of work for the current team, but it would be a wonderful advancement for everyone and it would create similar websites that would appeal to certain types of people.

      Personally, a brightly colored HP page for kids would be cool and appealing to kids. With bright blues, pinks, purples, reds, oranges, etc. But not too many colors, just bright colors to appeal to kids, instead of the blacks and grays.

      All sister sites could resemble the main HubPages website to some extent, but each have distinct differences to make them unique, whether in colors, options, and/or overall page design.

    Am in pretty much agreement with Whitney.  My eleven year old granddaughter was so thrilled with seeing some of my hubs, that without us knowing (I was taking a nap), she wrote and published a hub.  We didn't really feel that some of the more adult topics on hubpages were appropriate for her to be exposed to.  Plus, there were concerns with strangers emailing her.  Fortunately, she lost interest and has forgotten her password.


    A well controlled sister site for junior hubbers might be very nice though to inspire younger wannabe authors to write.
