Yes, this is a great venue for aspiring writers to get feedback and build an audience.
Yes, it is a great place to gain readership and refine my writing skills by feedback and studying others work here on Hubpages
I began writing last year to fill in time while laid aside unable to work and now I love it and am thankful to have found hubpages which is helping me learn to write. And now I am definitely an aspiring writer, hoping to publish my final edited first novel, as well as writing the occasional article on hubpages.
Yes that is part of my motivation for writing here. I have so much to write about. I am a good writer and enjoy it. I think writing is maybe the best way to learn a subject.
Yes I am. This is a fantastic site to get reach a wider audience and make yourself known
Partially. I'm on HubPages to improve my writing and because it motivates me to write. It's also nice to have a reliable community of mostly scholars right at my fingertips! I use it as a hobby too. The platform is just a perk!
Yes. I spent many years doing research aimed at discovering new drug therapies for various diseases and conditions. Now that I have retired from active research, I want to use my writing as a way to educate others about how the body works and how drugs work in the body. At the same time, I want to keep myself up to date regarding the latest advances made in science and medicine, and the research I do as part of the writing of a hub allows me to see the forward progess being made to address society's most pressing health problems. Interacting with the hubpages community of writers provides valuable feedback and encouragement as I pursue my second career.
I'm not sure what you mean by platform. I'm trying to collect things I've written in the past (some published, but to which I retained rights) and put them in one place to judge what they look like together, with a possible eye to eventual publication in a small tome.
So it's really just an exercise in narcissism, and a bit of a motivational tool.
to gave readers an IDEA, what they'll be reading if I publish the hard copy.(a book)
Like inkslinger21 said, I'm not clear as to what you mean by platform, but if your meaning is am I trying to build a specific readership, then the answer is yes. There is a specific niche market that I'm targeting with the larger intent of publishing those articles as a series of print and e-books at a later date.
I definately did start with Hub Pages to 'build a platform' but also to improve my writing skills as I had not done any writing for a few years. I'm almost ready to expand out a bit now. But one plan I have changed. I didn't know, when I joined how long I would stay with Hub Pages. But I enjoy the people, others' writings and the site so much that I'll be sticking around for a long time to come!
Yes. I'm currently unemployed and in an effort to do something with my time I'm trying to build a readership and some samples of my writing to show future employers.
Yes, of course. The more you publish here, the more exposure you get.
Dunno! I just like writing.
(and my answer was too short, so I had to write it again.)
Dunno! I just like writing.
That was not my primary intention, but I realize that it can be a good platform builder, so yes. I just wish that I would always have a great author's score which might help me seem really authentic.
I hadn't thought about this, it's just fun to write and to read what others have written. However, I now see that there could be other, useful reasons for writing and perhaps I should follow suit. Thank you for making me think about it.
Yes. It's a great way to build a portfolio of writing samples, explore topics of interest, get feedback, and build an audience. Plus it's a lot of fun. I'm definitely not doing it for the money. : )
I originally started on hub pages to make some money. Now, I realize it's veyr difficult to make a significant living, but, it's a great way to work on your writing skills and build a name for yourself.
Yes, this site motivates me to keep writing. Motivation has always been a bit of an issue with me, so I'm glad this site has at least helped to fix that.

When I first came to hub pages, I will admit that my relationship with God and Christ was less than it should have been, hence when I hit the forums I retaliated to the attacks I got, rather than respond.... hopefully I have leaned now and can respect that the atheists feel as strongly about their...

DO YOU AGREE THAT WE ALL ARE WASTING OUR TIME IN ORDER TO EARN SOME MONEY?

Do you consider HubPages a hobby or as a way to boost your income?I started writing on HubPages as a creative outlet, but now that I'm beginning to make a little money, I'm changing my outlook.

What is your purpose for being on HubPages? Everyone had a purpose for joining, what was yours?When I ran across HubPages, it looked real cool I joined actually a couple years ago, but never did nothing with it. I wanted to write, but it seemed complicated. I love to write since a child. I think I...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...
