    I really enjoy the international audience and money-making opportunities at HubPages. However, I like to write about goings on in my hometown that few people would care about even on the other side of the city. So this is my apology to HubPages for not many hubs!

      instead of hubs about your home city try writing say a blogger blog about your home city. Start with reviews of businesses and then the different things to do their etc. Where to have a kids birthday party the best bike and hiking trails near you. You may be surprised at the amount of traffic you get.

        Thanks a bunch JustMike. That advice makes a lot of sense. Stay tuned for a First 50 in Tyler, TX hub.

    I write for a community radio station and their website.  It's all done for free but I've learnt loads and developed my own style.  I don't get to write many hubs either but I do get feedback from all over the world from the radio.  Making money on hubpages is a great thing to do but if you want to be published by a more traditional method, I think writing in all sorts of mediums is of value and your home town sounds like an excellent place to experiment and develop.  Good on you!

      Glad that radio gets you known. I do feel that I'm developing a style that's really journalistic and separate from my past era of teaching remedial composition. I bet PBS is great.
