I love Hubpages - and I love the community. But I want to be able to branch out with my writing and write about perhaps more adult content, or write about the local legalization of pot in Washington without having to watch what links I put up - whatever it may be. Do you know of, or have any experience writing "taboo" subjects?
It is an art my dear. Read Epigramman and apply the subtle nuance. If you just want to be crude you will not find sponsors.
does adsense say no to that sort of stuff? Are there Adsense alternatives?
Adsense is extremely prudish; it has to be to be acceptable to all the advertisers out there. So adsense gives a very loud NO to that sort of stuff.
You might solicit advertising money yourself from appropriate manufacturers/sellers. Marijuana growers. Adult "toys" ( I know Amazon sells them; some poor hubber found she had been credited with the sale of some sex toys and was quite distraught about it a couple of years ago).
The bigger question might be what you are willing to do and what you are willing to have attached to your name.
At this point I'm looking into what it would cost me to build a site like this for any kind of material as long as it didn't promote violence! Though I don't have the money or the know-how.
Surely there has to be something like this, somewhere.
I have been writing about what's been going on in WA with the new Marijuana laws, and I got dinged because one of my references promoted gun sales or something like that, and my Hub was taken down. I just don't want to tip-toe

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

If you win the lottery, would you write more or less?Once a day, as part of my routine, I walk to the local convenience store, partly to clear my head or concentrate on an aspect of an article or story I am currently working on. And, everyday, I buy a lottery ticket...I sometimes wonder...if...

I decided not to leave hubpages but since my traffic was split in half several months ago it seems as if my subdomain is struggling to get back up.We all know that Google, the internet master, prefers niches sites over content farms (sites with multiple subjects). Given the newest update and...
