I heard it calling to me in a dream and sure enough it said "sign up now" and so I did!
hmmm..I think it was google...wow, I really don't remember.
Stumbled and tripped on it, I suppose.
Hi Jabelufiroz, me it was from my husband.
BTW, Happy Valentines to you all.
It was brought up in a writer's group, so I checked it out. And here I am.
I was aware of hubpages, squidoo from some social media people. But joined only when i found it comfortable place for myself.
They had an ad that looked like a job listing, posted amongst the other job listings, on Craigslist.
I had set up a blog and didn't know what to do with it!
I went looking for information about how to get traffic to my blog and found a hub pages article that was written in an honest and friendly style. It said one way would be to sign up at a site like this one and write an article about my blog with a link, a link in the profile and if there were relevant items to sell with amazon I could add them too and maybe earn that way. My blog was six months old and had not been viewed. I signed up right away and wrote an article, I didn't even know the site had a forum yet . In the half hour I spent trying my hand at writing an article I had had 2 followers. Of course I thought I could write another article and maybe it would be read in under a half hour of being published too. By the time I finished it I had had a comment on my first hub and had what I felt to be a real and genuine fan. This sweet hubber was dohn121 by the way. At this point I was motivated to write just to be read, I enjoyed just knowing my work was being read (unlike my disheveled blog). I have since read and had a few good mile stones and am focusing a lot on writing for good information and products. I expect over the summer holidays from work I may well do a few more stories and opinion hubs . This has been a great learning environment and I know when I go back to try blogging again I will have a better idea of how to create it and promote it and the value of being patient too
Friends of mine already making money with HubPages suggested it to me.
Cyberfriend and hubber DonnaCSmith, aka Donna C. Smith, said she was going to try it. I followed her.
Did a search for freelance. HubPages was one of many results and one of a few I chose to follow up on.
stumbled across it . like writing here will afford you. your lucky to be seen by the masses here .
I asked for writing sites on twitter and someone recommended Hubpages.

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...

Is a link to my own blog considered an affiliate link? I want to link from a Hubpages article I am writing to an article on my blog that further describes what I am writing about in the article.

Hi, I'm completely new to freelance writing and I thought I'd give it a shot because writing is second nature to me and it's something I really enjoy. But I'm not sure if a website like HubPages fits what I want to write about. It's been suggested to me that blogging is more up my alley. What I...

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?
