Great Reasons To Publish Online With HubPages

Updated on November 2, 2012

Do you have a yearning to write and publish online?

Writers are seeking readers.

One choice among many, or THE choice?

If you already know all about HubPages and just want to publish your writing online, here is where you sign up to do just that:






If you want to know why you should want to sign up with HubPages, read on. (You can always come back to the link above and get started.)

I signed up to publish on HubPages in October 2011 and promptly took a week off for a vacation in Maine, and a visit with my Mom and my sister. Even allowing for a week's vacation then, and the week's vacation I just took for the same purpose, I have published over 400 articles, books, poems, and limericks in the intervening period October 10, 2011 to August 10, 2012, an average of over 40 titles a month.

By comparison, because there is a wide range of earnings from one "Hubber" (what we call ourselves) to another, I should state that I am neither the most prolific writer on HubPages, nor the highest earner. Interestingly, some Hubbers who publish far fewer works actually earn much better incomes.

Here is how they do it, and why you will want to consider becoming a Hubber, too:

1. All writers want to have their work read and commented on. It is all well and good for a John Grisham to write a lot, sell a lot, and have his books made into popular films. He gets his comments, not only from reviewers and the public, but also in the bank. For beginning writers, and even for the many productive professional freelancers I know, regular, helpful comments are what we live for, and the added income is nice too. Publishing on HubPages not only means you will be likely to receive comments on everything you publish, but the comments will make you a better writer while teaching you what other successful writers do to be successful.

2. HubPages has developed a compensation plan which rewards each Hubber's production based on the quality of their published material and the response those materials get from readers viewing their work. Compensation does not depend on whether or not readers comment on the material, but rather on how many readers view your material and on programs affiliated with HubPages by Google(R), Amazon(R), and ebay(R) which can result in added income for you as a writer.

3. Furthermore, writers who join HubPages just as you are considering doing, can produce a referral income for you as the referring Hubber based on their future productivity and earnings. Thus you have a potential for income and comments coming from your own work, your HubPages connections to Google(R), Amazon(R), and ebay(R), and from any friends, family, or readers who also decide to publish using HubPages as a result of your referral.

4. If you are interested in "learning the ropes" and how others benefit from HubPages, the company has an unusually popular "Apprenticeship Program" and its own "Learning Center" which you can use at your convenience to quickly master every opportunity which joining HubPages has to offer. And,

5. Joining HubPages is FREE! Click on the link above and read to understand the Terms of Service, and then start publishing your own books, articles, poems, short stories, videos, and limericks. It's just that easy, and can be a truly rewarding opportunity.

I know. I'm a Hubber.

      More Oriental Cooking Hubs, after all the peaches are processed, and before it is "Apples, Apples, Apples" again.

      A nice thumbs up for hubpages with this article. Nice to meet you Perspycacious. Oh! And thanks to one of your commenters, Mr. Orion, for the Amazon vs eBay tip. Nice mention of the Apprenticeship program, Perspycacious. I have been at HP for a while and that flew right over my head until recently. Stay well - Keep writing. (and I'm OFF to go read more of your cooking/oriental cooking hubs...there ARE going to me more oriental cooking hubs, right?)

      Great article....There was a quote in a movie but the name escapes me. It was something like "Keep Pound those keys"...

      Many writers and would-be writers come to HubPages. The serious ones stay, and these are the reasons.

      So many great reasons to join HubPages! Lots of ways to earn and I like the support of the community. Well done.

      I've written for many sites, but have to admit that HubPages is my favorite. It is easy to navigate and the hubbers here are very nice and give such good advice. Great hub.

      Let's compare notes sometime by a contact email. I have some frustrations with both amazon and ebay.

      You pretty much hit all there is to be noted. On the affiliate factor, I don't bother with Amazon, as eBay pays by the click, not the sale, apparently. I also do hope that the Apprenticeship Program is effective enough to expand, as I'd certainly like to take part.

      Well done, on the Hub!

      I guess it's time to do another one for today....just to keep in practice mind you. ; o)

      Nicely put! I also love the community here. As an aside, you have published a lot of work--I am so impressed!

      Nice Hub earlier today on the subject. I'm still waiting for more results from Amazon and ebay, despite adding links to one or both on most of my articles whose length justifys the links. How are those two performing for you?

      Great article Perspycacious,

      I really love writing here. I know that there are many writing sites, but none of them are as good as Hubpages when it comes to earning potential.
