HubPages: An Ideal platform for Writers : Advice and Tips For New Writers!

Anyone, who is about to join the online writing platform, must be having these questions in mind:

  • Which writing website to join?

  • Which one is the best?

  • Which website provides a writer friendly approach?

After publishing more than 100 hubs or articles, all featured; I am in a position to share, some of the reasons and experiences, which will be of help to the newcomers, in this exciting online writing field.

I am about to complete and celebrate 7 years at HubPages and that itself explains, that it’s a suitable platform for online writing.

The HubPages has changed a lot, since I joined and changed for the better. The inclusion of Niche sites, has added the much needed value to the writers, as well as the readers, who prefer reading and writing, quality content. And this differentiates this online writing website, from some other sites.

I hope this article provides, some help and guide, to the new hubbers.

Quotes:

The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean”

----- Robert Louis Stevenson

10 Reasons, Why do I prefer HubPages, for Online Writing and Publishing:

I started writing Online, about 7 years ago. My experiences with some other writing sites, were far from satisfactory, although it's not correct to mention their names here.

The fact that I have stayed here at HubPges for 6+ years, and continue to publish at this platform, must have some strong reason, for this long association.

1. To Learn How To Write Online:

  • Most of us were writers, even before joining HP. But writing for an online reader is different, from the regular print writing.
  • After publishing my first hub, and then subsequent hubs, I learnt here at HP, that the writers have to make their writing, 'visually appealing' as well.
  • In other words, adding pictures, relevant links, videos, maps, tables, polls, and some other capsules, makes the article, more appealing to read.
  • Breaking up the writing in capsules, and adding related pictures, can help to retain, the attention of the reader.
  • Besides all this, the writing work must be promoted, and this is slightly difficult.
  • Good content, however can never go unnoticed. Ultimately the 'Content is the king."

All of this, can be understood and learnt gradually, article by article. In other words, we learn and progress, by each submission.

2. Honing the Writing Skills:

  • As one progresses, from the first hub, to the 100th hub, one can notice the improvements, themselves.
  • Go through your articles, from a critical point of view. You can also request a fellow writer friend, to do the proofreading of the article.
  • One must listen to the advice of the senior and experienced writers, with an open mind, and keep referring, to the HubPages Learning Centre..
  • Saying this with experience, that this website is the best place, for learning the skills of writing good content, and improving it further.
  • Learning, is an ongoing process and we learn throughout our lives. Same is true, for writing.

3. The Format or The Hub tool:

The format or the Hub Tool, has many important features, which I did not find, in other writing websites, where I was writing earlier.

Hubpages is a writer friendly website and the flexibility of rearranging the content, is an excellent feature.

The 'auto save draft' is also important, and necessary feature.

In fact, it provides every feature, required for writing, an impressive online content.

4. An Online Resume:

Believe it or not, your HubPages profile page, acts as an Online resume for you.

I have received many job offers, from different quarters, regular daily magazines, content writing jobs etc. through my profile on LinkedIn and other social media websites, where I have provided the link, to my HubPages profile.

The various job portals, have an access to your content and if they are interested in your kind of content, your chances of getting job offers from them, are bright.

For now, I am happy to write and publish here, at Hubpages, with whatever time I can spare. Regular jobs, require more time, and therefore, this one suits me well. This applies to many others, like me. Therefore, it’s an ideal platform for home based jobs, or what we call, Work from home.

But if someone is interested, the HP profile, and your display of work/ content can help you, in finding a regular job, as well.

Quotes:

“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.”

------E. L. Doctorow

Content is king

Content is king

On various occasions, the HubPages has been Therapeutic for me.

5. Flexibility:

This brings us, to the discussion of the next reason; why Hubpages is more preferrable to writers?

  • At the HubPages, one can write at any time of the day, or night. Whereas, in regular jobs, one cannot have that luxury or flexibility. Most of the times, the working hours are, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • One can also choose the topics, on which they want to write.
  • There is no need to limit ourselves, by writing only on a particular subject. Normally, in a regular writing job, one is asked to write, on a particular subject.

6. Exposure:

The fact, that our writing is published, and read by none other than, the talented writers themselves, gives a lot of exposure and experience.

The money we make here, depends on the Google ranking of our articles or hubs. But I find it most important to learn, what the talented writers think about my work. If they like it, I am sure, it will get a good ranking from Google, and other Online readers as well.

7. Feedback:

How much helpful it is, to get the feedback from the people, who really matter the most, to improve upon your writing.

This is indeed greatly helpful.

The feedback by the HP community, makes it easy to understand about the topics, and I am able to write my next artitle, well and with conviction.

The articles or hubs, on which I get overwhelming response, in the 'comments' section, I have often found, that they are my favourite topics to write about.

8. Motivation:

Like any other job, even writers need motivation.

. "Appreciation is the best motivation."

And there is plenty of appreciation, by the fellow writers, at HubPages.

You may feel motivated, by the other writer's excellent hubs, or by a positive feedback and sometimes, by the infectious energy levels, of the other writers, which compels you, to publish yet another quality hub.

The Backbone: The HubPages Community!

9. The HubPages Community:

If you ask the fellow hubbers, why you still write write for HP, in spite of this reason or that reason----

I think the unanimous answer would be, because of the HP Community!

I have said it quite often--in the comments, in the Forums, in the Q-A section, and do not hesitate to say it again and again, that it is the friendly support of the fellow hubbers, which keeps me holding on, to this online writing website.

Signing in for HubPages, has become an important part of my life, not only to write my own hubs, but read other's interesting ones.

The fellow hubbers are always there for you, to encourage and share your happy and the not so happy moments of life.

Writing at HubPages is kind of therapeutic to me. It is indeed very relaxing to me.

10. The Money:

Like many hubbers, I do not make a lot of money here. Although, I have received payouts, but we all know, that the money is nothing, to boast about.

But money is not all that important, in comparison to the recognition and satisfaction, which I get here. Money is just a bonus, which makes me happy occasionally.

But I feel proud to tell people, that I write for HubPages, and I am a published author.

To Conclude:

  • HubPages is an ideal platform, for online writing;
  • To hone your writing skills;
  • To share your views with others;
  • To interact with fellow writers;
  • To learn from their experiences;
  • And last, but not the least, also make some money!

An excellent hub! Your advise is most helpful

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 18, 2019:

Thank you so much Thelma, for reading and agreeing with my views about HubPages. I believe, you speak on behalf of many other HP writers, who have stayed with HubPages, this long.

Since I joined HubPages and published my first hub, things have changed a lot, and for the better. I have also improved upon my writing. This is the best part, that you learn from your fellow writers.

Thanks again and I feel privileged to know you, my friend. It’s always a pleasure to read your comments. Thank You!

Thelma Alberts from Germany and Philippines on February 18, 2019:

Those are good reasons to write for HubPages. I am here for I think almost 8 years. When I look back from the beginning when I started here, I had no idea why I joined. The only thing I knew was I wanted to write and I needed a platform to write online. I was a newbie then and I learned as I go. I never thought I could stay here for so many years. I love HP and the community.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 02, 2017:

Thanks srsddn for your kind visit and comments on this hub!

I agree with your views about HP . It has changed a lot over the years and for the better. It is a continuous learning process for us as writers. At least I can speak that for myself.

I am happy that you would be publishing your valuable work again at HP.

Thanks and all the best!

srsddn from Dehra Dun, India on April 01, 2017:

Yes, Chitrangada, there is lot to learn, lot to share. HubPages Community seems to be a never ending source of improving. HP continues to be evolving and it is appealing much more than what it was 4-5 years back. After a lull for over a year I feel motivated by inspiring contributions of persistent Hubbers like you. Thanks for sharing all these reasons.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on September 30, 2016:

Thanks for appreciating the hub Audrey!

I have also learnt here so much from my fellow hubbers who are very dear to me. We may not have met or seen each other but this is a special bond- the bond of love and understanding that I share with all of you and I feel blessed for this.

And yes you are undoubtedly a veteran here and I feel happy to know you.

Thanks again!

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on September 30, 2016:

After being here for six years I'm as happy as a lark. I've learned so much about writing from my fellow hubbers. You've written a good hub both for beginners here on HP and for we veterans. Thanks so much my friend.

Audrey

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on July 13, 2016:

Thanks Sunil, for reading, commenting and sharing this hub! Glad you found it to be informative.

Good to see you after a long gap. Yes sometimes real life keeps us so busy that we do not get time for Internet activities. Same with me.

Hope you get time to publish some of your most informative travel and other hubs.

Thank you!

Sunil Kumar Kunnoth from Calicut (Kozhikode, South India) on July 13, 2016:

Hello Chitra,

Found this useful and informative. Hence shared. Unfortunately, I am so busy with official duties and as such rarely come here. Hope to regain my energy and spirit soon.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on July 09, 2016:

Thanks Dianna, for revisiting this hub ! Your presence is always a pleasure!

Thanks!

Dianna Mendez on July 08, 2016:

Thought I would pop back in here to review the good reasons to write for HubPages.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on November 06, 2015:

Thank you Shampa, for your kind visit and positive comments!

Yes I like to write for HP due to the above mentioned reasons. I am not publishing regularly but even I visit the site regularly to read others work or make changes in my earlier submissions to keep it relevant and updated.

As you mentioned , the site is respected due to its rich content and friendly community.

Thank you for appreciating!

Shampa Sadhya from NEW DELHI, INDIA on November 05, 2015:

I have not written any new post here for quite some time now but I regularly visit the site. Edit my post, sometimes read other's post and so on. It's undoubtedly a good platform. A few hubs of mine are not featured but I have not even tried to edit them due to time constraint.The community is excellent and the best part is no one is interested to write a crap. Excellent post and people will be easily drawn towards HP after they get to read this post of yours.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on November 05, 2015:

Thank you Suzette, for reading and commenting on this hub! Glad to learn that you agree with my points.

Thanks for appreciating!

Suzette Walker from Taos, NM on November 04, 2015:

I really like this article and I agree with your points wholeheartedly!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on November 04, 2015:

Thank you Thelma Alberts, for reading and commenting on this hub!

I am glad to learn that you will be publishing again on HP very soon. I also published a hub after a brief gap though I visit the site almost everyday to read other hubs.

This is another plus point of HP that we write as and when we want to. In other words there is no compulsion or targets. Only we can fix our own targets.

Thank you and happy writing!

Thelma Alberts from Germany and Philippines on November 03, 2015:

These are the reasons why I am still here at HP although I have not written a hub for a few months now. I have not found a new topic to write about, worth to be publish here. Maybe soon.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on November 03, 2015:

Thank you colofulone, for stopping by to read and comment !

Even I took a break for sometime as far as publishing a new hub is concerned. But I was reading others hubs and commenting on them. I am sure a little break can do good to us. Happy writing and hope to see you publishing again soon.

Thank you!

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on November 02, 2015:

I haven't written a new hub for sometime now. Maybe I should put it in gear and at least get started on one. I do like writing on HP.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on September 23, 2015:

Thank you AussieAdventure, for your kind visit and comments!

I am glad this article is helpful to you. Thanks for the follow as well.

Cassandra from Geelong VIC Australia on September 23, 2015:

This is a great article and it helped me out a lot, as I am new to hub pages. Thank you Chitrangada.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on September 23, 2015:

Thank you Dana Tate, for your kind visit and comments!

I completely agree with you that writers need support and encouragement from their writer friends and writer's community. Every time when I write a hub, it is the positive feedback of fellow writers that uplifts and encourages me.

Thank you for appreciation!

Dana Tate from LOS ANGELES on September 22, 2015:

Nicely presented. I believe this is a must read for all new hubbers. The hubpage community is very supportive and encouraging. I know I have grown thanks to their wonderful support. Writers need a support group because most family and friends are not supportive. So we uplift and encourage and it is such a blessing.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on July 16, 2015:

Thanks florypaula, for reading the hub and agreeing with me.

Yes, it took me also sometime to understand how things work here and then I enjoy my time here. I have made friends from around the World and that is wonderful.

Many thanks for appreciating!

Paula on July 15, 2015:

Once I've understood how things work around here I loved every second. All your reasons are my reasons too. Nice hub.

Have a nice day :)

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on March 24, 2015:

Thank you Buildreps, for your kind visit and comments!

I am glad you liked this hub and agree with my experience. Yes, HP is an ideal platform for sharing our views on subjects we are interested in.

It gives me great satisfaction, when people read my work and share their own comments. That itself is the driving force to write more. And a little bit of money also keeps adding up, which is good.

Thanks for the follow as well!

Buildreps from Europe on March 24, 2015:

Interesting Hub, ChitrangadaSharan. You made me think why I'm writing here. It's certainly not for the money. It's for me the only way to write, about issues that matter in my opinion, under a pseudonym.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on March 13, 2015:

Namaste and Thank you Aliur, for your kind visit and appreciative comments!

Glad to learn that you liked this hub.

Welcome to HubPages and wish you all the success here. It's a very good platform to hone your writing skills.

All the best and thanks!

Aliur on March 12, 2015:

Namaste Ma'm :)

Great hub. You're good at it. Looking forward to read all of your articles. I am new here and as student I just wanna brush up my talent of writing. Hoping to see good results. Have a good day.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 24, 2015:

Thank you Jodah, for your kind visit and comments!

Glad you agree with most of my experiences here at HubPages. The experience so far has been very pleasing and enriching. Everyday something new can be learnt and I have learnt a lot from fellow hubbers.

Thanks for voting up and supporting!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 24, 2015:

Thank you Nadine May, for your kind visit and wonderful comments!

I am glad that you agree with most of my experiences here at HubPages. Its true that HP experience has enriched my life and my writings. I like spending quality time here and interacting with fellow hubbers such as you.

Thank you for voting up and sharing!

Nadine May from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on February 22, 2015:

What a fantastic article and every point you make is so very true for me. The enjoyment i get from preparing a hub article by creating the graphics, doing research and look for videos is itself already an enrichment for me as the author.voted up and i will share it with our authors.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on February 20, 2015:

This was wonderfully informative and useful Chitrangada. A well set out hub and an interesting read. I agree with all your reasons to write on Hub Pages, and I'm not intending to go anywhere else either. Voted up.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 16, 2015:

Thank you janshares, for your kind visit and positive feedback!

Glad you liked this hub and agree with most of my experiences here at Hubpages. At HP, I have learnt a lot and still learning about online writing. The best part of HP is its wonderful community.

Thank you for your support and votes!

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on February 13, 2015:

Very nice testimony, Chitrangada. You provided an excellent sell for why HP is the best place to write. You brought out some excellent and very specific points as well that show how the benefits outweigh the negative. HP is the first and only place I write. I had to learn as I go as far as the uniqueness of online writing. I have learned a lot and look forward to increasing my successes on HP. Voted up and useful.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 10, 2015:

That's a valid point, you have raised here. And that's why the title is very important. It should be catchy and should be able to attract the reader. Introduction is equally important to create curiosity. And of course, as they say 'the content is the key.' If the reader likes your content, they will come back to read your next work also.

For visual appeal, the pictures, video etc. add to the attention of the reader.

Thank you Blackspaniel1, for your valuable comments!

Blackspaniel1 on February 09, 2015:

I realize images and videos can help a piece, but would a potential reader be unable to see such things before opening the hub, and if interest is grabbed still stay?

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 06, 2015:

Thank you Millionaire Tips, for your kind visit and positive comments!

Glad to learn that you agree with my experience here at HP.

Thanks!

Shasta Matova from USA on February 05, 2015:

I agree with all of your reasons. This is truly a great place to write, and the community is the best!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on February 04, 2015:

Thank you Ashima Tan, for your visit and kind words!

Thank you colorfulone, for your kind visit and comments!

I am glad you agree with most of my experiences here. Yes, the money should improve.

Thanks again!

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on January 21, 2015:

All very good reasons to write on HP. I just wish the money was better, but has has improved a little recently with some added ads.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 20, 2015:

Thank you Nell, for your kind visit and appreciation!

Glad to know that you agree with most of my experiences here at HP!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your constant support through this pleasing journey from my 1st to 100th hub. Same feelings I want to express--what would I do without friends like you at HP!

Thanks again for being an inspiration and constant support!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 20, 2015:

Thank you Romanian, for your kind visit and positive comments!

Appreciate your views and thanks for following me. Thanks!

Nell Rose from England on January 19, 2015:

I also love writing here, and have tried other sites. But there is no site like Hubpages, I love all the other writers on here, they are lovely, and I now call them my friends, what would I do without it? lol! great hub, and good info, nell

Nicu from Oradea, Romania on January 19, 2015:

I agree with you, the most important thing here, it's that you learn how to write good articles.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 19, 2015:

Thank you sgbrown, for your kind visit and comments!

I am glad that you agree with most of my experiences here. Indeed it is a wonderful writing site and the HP community is its greatest strength, with friendly, supportive and knowledgeable writers.

Good to know that you will be writing here more frequently from now on.

Thank you for your support!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 19, 2015:

Thank you FlourishAnyway, for your kind visit and supportive comments!

I agree with you completely---When I joined and wrote my first hub, I never imagined I would one day write my 100th hub. All due to the awesome HP community, which has constantly supported and appreciated my writing. The community is in fact the most important reason to keep the interest intact.

You are a great writer and I enjoy reading your hubs. Thanks and keep writing many more!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 19, 2015:

Thank you Dianna, for your kind visit and supportive comments!

Yes, I have enjoyed writing for this site and it has been a pleasing journey from 1st to the 100th hub. I consider myself fortunate to have discovered friends like you who constantly encourage and support my writing. I love the interaction with like minded people and look forward to spending some quality time here .

Thank you so much!

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on January 18, 2015:

HubPages is a wonderful writing site with so many kind and helpful people. I have not been writing here for a while, but I am coming back. HubPages has proved to be the premiere writing site over time.

FlourishAnyway from USA on January 18, 2015:

Great reasons here! When I first joined I expected to be lost in a crowd but I actually received comments, encouragement ... because there is a real community of great writers here who share my passion and my work (and I, theirs). I haven't ventured out to try other sites because I am pretty happy here at home.

Dianna Mendez on January 17, 2015:

I agree with all your points. I believe the format is just about the best online tool anywhere. I hope it continues to grow and prove a good journey for you, ChitrangadaSharan.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 17, 2015:

Appreciate your support! Thanks!

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on January 15, 2015:

I agree that the advantage of HubPages is the flexible schedule, the Hubpages community and the exposure. What a good idea to share on Linkedn! I hadn´t considered that possibility.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 14, 2015:

Thank you uthmansy, for your kind visit and comments!

Glad you liked this hub and also like HP. Thanks for the follow as well.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 14, 2015:

Thank you MarleneB, for your kind visit and insightful comments!

I agree with you that the positives outweigh the negatives. The best part is the HP writer's community, always there to motivate and encourage you.

As I have mentioned in the hub, it is relaxing to interact with like minded people from around the Globe. We may not have seen each other or met, but there is definitely a connection and that is amazing and I love it.

So nice to see you here and for your constant support, my friend. It gives me immense pleasure to remind you that you are one of my first follower.

Thank you so much!

Marlene Bertrand from USA on January 13, 2015:

I definitely agree that HubPages is a great online platform to write. The benefits outweigh anything that could seem to be negative about HubPages. The feedback the community has provided has helped me boost my confidence. Since the writing life can be a lonely one, having a devoted writing community is quite valuable to me in many ways. Through the community, I also get a place where I can call "home." I'm comfortable here and that's a good thing. I really enjoyed reading about your experience. It is always good to see you.

Hi, Chitra, it's so great! You have put down all the best points of HP. I also liked this platform for all these wonderful points when I casually landed to this site 10 months ago. Since then, my love for this site is ever growing. There are so many good points to cling on to this site.

Thank you for pointing these things to our new comers and the writer world. Voted up and awesome.
