Mibba directly shifts its focus towards teens, and really emphasizes on creative ability. Mibba is a great writing (and reading) site for teens as it allows you to express yourself by:
- Posting stories. Mibba adds a bit of creativity when letting its users post stories. When creating your story (after adding the title, cover image, description, etc.) at Mibba you can customize the background to your liking with the colors, and picture you feel best represents your story. You can even add images to each chapter of your story, including moving GIF images. You can also add ratings (G, PG, Or PG-13) to your stories.
- Creating Blogs. With blogs at Mibba you can basically share what's on your mind. It really takes the form of mini blogs as you can't really continue on from the same blog. Each blog post is solo.
- Sharing Poems. When you create your poems it follows the same creative format as posting stories.
- Posting Articles. Articles have a different format than stories, poems, and blogs. The article section of Mibba is created for just that--Articles. You can write about recent news, or something that you discovered that can benefit others.
- Creating tutorials. A lot of the tutorials at Mibba involve cooking recipes, but you do not have to stick to that. You can write tutorials about other things such as technology, music, makeup, fashion, etc.
- Submitting Books. The books section isn't really anything to get hyped about. All you simply do is add the books that you like (that isn't already in the database) so that others can search for it, and also comment on what they liked about it (so, like goodreads except not as good).

Quizilla is hosted by teennick, and is a pretty good site to join if your looking to pass some time. Quizilla is packed with fun quizzes, and stories so you'll really be in for some good entertainment.
Though if you're in the mood to read a really great story you'll be pushing your luck, and would need to prepare yourself for a bowl of confusion. Why? Well the site is kind of loaded with fanfics (and trust me, they will get quite annoying), a lot of the writing is bad, and some stories are scattered across the website. Chapter one of a story might be all the way on page 5 of the website while chapter 5 can be on page 180!
All in all, these are only the issues I find wrong with the site (you might not mind it at all) so don't let that discourage you from checking it out. At Quizilla you can:
- Create Quizzes
- Post Stories
- Post Fanfics
- Post Lyrics
- Create Polls
- Make Surveys

Create original quizzes, stories, fanfic, lyrics, polls and surveys on Quizilla.
