Have you ever been offered a writing assignment because of your Hub Pages writing?
I only got an offer once to write an article for a company's website based on my writing on Hub Pages. Just curious as to how many, if any, offers the writers here have had and was it worth your effort.
No, but all my hubs are writen from articles I've had published in print.
I was asked by a Pastor if he could use one of my hubs in his monthly magazine, I said yes with no charge. He sent me a copy and the article was credited to me. Another time I was asked to write articles for a travel magazine, I agreed and set a price. 3 articles were accepted. 1 article was published under my name but for unrelated reasons the magazine did not publish again. I did not receive payment and so I put the other 2 on hubs.
If you want to write and get paid try oDesk or Elance.
Yes, I've used hubs as writing samples while applying for gigs frequently. I would recommend freelancing sites or constant-content for selling articles.
Not exactly, but a hub that I wrote about my experience with the paid writing site, TextBroker, was picked up by them. They liked it and linked to it from their Facebook page. Who knows?... Maybe their decision to send me some special orders was, in part, influenced by that hub. I'd like to think so.
No I haven't, although I haven't been here very long.
To be quite honest I don't think I'd have the self confidence to take on a writing assignment but I'd be really happy if someone wanted to use one of my Hubs or even link to it from their site.
As a matter of fact, I just received an email yesterday via my HubPages account by someone offering to pay me to write an article about their website. I haven't had the chance to look over their site or discuss any details/expectations yet.
I guess it's rare, but it does happen.
I think this makes a good case against hubbing in a bubble. Some hubbers prefer to just publish their hubs and leave without any effort to network or contribute to the HP community.
They may have good reasons for doing so; I'm not one to judge. But for those of us who are looking to make a living as writers, this is a great example of how building relationships and being approachable can open doors to advance your career one little step at a time.
Yes! I got asked to write a blog for a website on a topic specific to one of my hubs. I was beyond thrilled to know that the company even noticed, let alone wanted me to write for them. They pretty much gave me free reign to write what I wanted on the topic, but it was on their time schedule. I did it for a while, but then real life summoned and I had to write more on my own time frame than on someone else's. All in all, it was a great experience.
I haven't been offered an assignment yet because of my HP writing, but I have used it to win a bid I was making to write or edit from someone else.
My main business is editing and writing, so if I am putting in a proposal to provide a service, I'll sometimes include links to HP content so they can see the sort of work I normally produce. This has helped us to win a couple of big clients.
An educational company sent a link for me to submit content to their magazine. I guess the company found my articles via Twitter.
I was offered a radio show interview based on my breakthrough research article called "Chemtrails: The 'Shocking' Truth".
http://artzgirl.hubpages.com/hub/So-You … on-Rampage
The 15 minute interview went so well that the radio show producer asked me to take my own 2 hour radio show, airing once a week. This led to the ability to interview some of the top people who have dedicated a number of years in my topics of writing... and furthered my research.
Shortly after my radio show aired, I was approached by a couple of book publishers. I'm looking into self publishing at this point, so this has been an interesting process.
The radio shows paved the way for more people to find out about my research and work.
Get your foot in the door... and do this anyway that you can. If I had only had a goal to write, then I may not have been open to taking the first interview which opened the door for me to have my own radio show. Follow up on invitations. You never know which door (or window) will lead you to your next major opportunity!
I just got hired because I told them I write articles, anyways,it is not a writing assignment but I have to edit all the essays made by our korean students.

Not every Hubber writes for money. I don't. Do you?Some of us who wrote for money in our professional lives, like the freedom of writing for our own pleasure. Reader's invited. At 82, I write for youngsters 2 - 8. My pleasure and I hope, theirs.

Are you "branded" as a Hub Pages writer? If so, what is your brand, and how is it helpful to you?While I believe it is helpful for Hubbers to have an identifiable "brand image," I know it is not something that's easily accomplished. We all have many interests, so our brand must...

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...
