    HubPages is not a blogging platform.

    http://hubpages.com/faq/#hub

    For blogging, you'll do much better if you use a site that was designed for that type of writing and content.

    Hi Silver Eyed Wolf,

    Firstly, you have a very uncommon username. I like it.

    Secondly, my answer. We cannot say HubPages as your own blog, we can say 60% of yours and 40% of HubPages' as per their profit sharing algorithm.

    Simply it is not like, blogger.com. HubPages drive traffic to your blog even you do not do any promotion. You can even get huge traffic even very first day of your hub here. So in that case it is much better than having a personal blog. Likewise their are many differences, advantages and disadvantages between personal blog & HubPages.

    So my openion is having personal blog is different than writing in HubPages. It is better to have both. If your objective is earning money, then it is better to have more options not only personal blog or HubPages. Sorry, Im out of the quiz.

    Anyway I hope this would help you to clear your mind. If you need any help, let me know. Im happy to help you.

    You can't use hubpages as personal blog. But some of the hubs you create sometimes do appear like blog anyway. Essays, poetry, stories, don't work on hubpages.

    Although many hubs may appear as like blogs. You're better of setting up your own blog from some of the major blogging platforms.

    I have setup and run many wordpress blogs myself. You can setup as many as you want for free.
