I'm considering moving one of my article series to an actual blog.

    I'm considering moving one of my article series to an actual blog.

    The traffic generated on hubpages has been minimal, and still have tons more to share. I just think that the browsing format would be so much better on a blog. Any reasons to keep them here? Only two of them are actually "featured". I have 28 with about 100 more to publish. Think it's worth it? I was thinking of doing "real time posts" from 1942. … eorge-Lutz

    If you aren't getting enough traffic from one source you should naturally move to another.

    At first, I assumed you were fed up and I was ignorantly going to suggest writing more interesting essays. But I went on your page and your essays are very interesting by anyone's standards. It looks as though you have done everything right are you're obviously a skilled writer. I would read a lot of them. It would be a shame for you to leave and pull your content, but I know a lot of people are doing it too. Remember that the internet has generally become a forum where everyone is so busy talking that no one is listening to what others are saying. Hub Pages is not much of an exception with the essays, though there does seem to be an unwritten guideline that we should comment on all essays written by people we know personally. The people who get lots of comments on their essays are people who notified all of their friends and family that they are on here. I've always been a big fan of the blog concept. Maybe you could try both for while: WWII stuff on the blog and essays on here and see what happens?

      Thanks for the kind words! I'm in no way upset with hubpages, and have quite a few articles with great traffic, but since the letters to my grandfather are a very niche interist, may fare better on a blog. I wouldnt pull everything smile
