HubPages

I have been “surfing” around HubPages this morning. It is quite really an interesting site.
It is a site where one can write freely on any topic one chooses. The benefits of HubPages are as follows:

· Articles are posted to the left with relevant ads
· Pics. and other items appear with the articles
· Profile blurb on the right
· Tags box underneath
· Related Hubs below this
· Comments section at the bottom of the page
· Lots of white space
· Very easy to use
· All browsing and signing up at the top of page
· It’s free

Some of the topic items or headings are as follows:

· Children
· Food
· Music
· Recipe
· How
· Health

One can earn money writing for this site. I read somewhere that this site pays $25.00 - $45.00 per article and the writer can also earn ad revenue. It looks to me as a very promising site so therefore in the next day or two I think I will sign up. One can get good writing exposure here and make new friends/contacts.

The URL is HubPages

Hi Michelle!

I'm so glad you like our site. Just wanted to clarify about the $25 per article you mentioned. This is part of the Flagship Hubs program, which is open to established Hubbers who've written a minimum of 5 high-quality, non-promotional Hubs. For those accepted into the program, we will pay $25 for each hub on an approved topic that incorporates a certain number of words and other elements such as videos, pictures, and links, and an additional $10 bonus for any such Hub that attracts at least 10 views from 10 separate sources on the web within the first 30 days after publication.

We're having a lot of success with this program, and so are our authors. Once you'd established yourself in the community, I hope you'll consider applying!

Thanks again for the positive mention. I look forward to seeing you around the site soon.
