Reasons to Utilize HubPages

Updated on March 22, 2013

HubPages Provides Writers with Expereince and Opportunity

Just as many people do, I created a HubPages account because it was advertised that I could potentially earn a few extra pennies each month. When I began to navigate through the sight, I signed up for all the different rewards programs, learned the rules and regulations, and began to write. Then, I began to ask questions, answer questions, read and comment, and participate in the forums and contests. I soon came realize that HubPages has more to offer writers than just those few pennies trickling into our accounts.
