Where I've Been and What I've Been Doing

Updated on August 8, 2019

I'm back

It's been quite a while since I posted on HubPages. As some of you may know I left this platform because I started writing on Medium. So far I have made $65. That is the most money I have ever made from my writing so I am quite proud. My stats are looking great for a newbie and for once I have high hopes for my writing career. If you are curious about my stats on Medium and would like me to talk about how I made money on there I would be happy to write a post up, so let me know.

Why I left HubPages

When a few people told me my style of writing wasn't right for HubPages I felt a little down, so I decided to search for a place that my writing would fit in and when I came across Medium it seemed like the right fit for me. They have a range of different writers and everyone writes about different things. From fiction to personal updates. I really enjoy it - including the money (I'm not scared to admit that).

I still enjoy HubPages but if my writing isn't a good fit then I shouldn't waste too much time and effort into a platform that won't bring success. That doesn't mean others can't become successful on here. If they follow the rules and do it the right way you can make a good little income from HubPages.

I Want to Write

I still do want to post every now and again on here despite the fact that my writing is better off being on Medium. I won't put much effort into HubPages (sorry) but I will go back and forth between the two platforms. I feel a little free here because no one knows me here.

So for those of you who follow and have been awaiting an update, hi, I'm back for a short time. Who knows, perhaps I will start posting on here again. But for now my energy is going into Medium.

Until Next Time

That is all I wanted to say for now. Hope everyone is having a good month, day, week, year and until next time, keep writing and reading. Goodbye :)
