    Do you think that Hubpages is the best place to write a children's series?

    I have written two chapters of a children's series called Emily's Little Life.  I have not had a lot of feedback .. I questioned the wisdom of placing this type of writing on hubpages.  What do you think?

    Mekenzie, I think the downside of publishing it here is that usually children don't visit this site. Even though parents usually are the ones who help children pick out their books, they may not choose a story from hubpages.
    I just posted a link to a free children's book that I e-published. You might want to check it out. If you are interested in free e-publishing, I can put up some of my older hubs that I took down that talk about that.
    But you may just get discouraged by some of these hubs, since I will openly admit that it takes a lot of time for your work to be found.

    You can post children stories here. I have done mine too. If parents like your story, they will print them out and let their children read. Have confidence.

    I think it would be worth a try. People look for so many different topics and good chlildren's stories are always in need.  If they provide some moral of learning it is even more valuable.

    If you are only interested in honing your writing skills with children's stories, then HubPages is a great place to get that, however, if you are interested in making any kind of money with a children's book, this is not the platform that will garner you the feedback or large earnings you are hoping for.

    I have posted the first 3 chapters of one of my children's books here, with the hopes that it would help with marketing, however, after the initial feedback from my fans, it has sat with no views for months, to the point that I am seriously thinking of deleting it.

    I posted several chapters of a fantasy fiction that did well initially, then completely died out. Both of these genres are so niche related that they don't seem to do that well here.

    I agree that using Hubpages as a way to introduce people to your ebook might work but I don't find that my fiction gets many views after the first month or so.  I published a few things during the arts contest but the only ones I get traffic to are the ones linked to informational hubs on adoption.  Like any traffic situation on Hubpages, having a large body of work in a niche area works best, so if you want to write a lot on that series and promote it through some parenting hubs or hubs about other books, that might work.

    Mekenzie, I loved "Emily's Little Life," series, but since I am new to hubbing, I am not real sure whether or not hub pages is the best place for a children's series.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    Hub pages contains A LOT of adult content. I like Hubpages. But, it is not-'child safe'.   I think hub pages would be a great place to write about writing Emily's Little Life.  Most of your audience on Hubpages would be other writers.  There is absolutely some benefit in that, but I don't think Hubpages is your best option for having your story for children read by children.
