Introduction

I joined the HubPages.com through an internet advert saw after about a decade of using Facebook and have been registered user on few other social media especially those allowed in Nigeria. Examples include but not limited to twitter and vk.com.

What Prompted My Joining Hubpages.com

After years of being on facebook, and being engrossed with her usage, sharing stories (fictions) and spiritual messages (christian mainly), someone talked to me about blogging that it is better I start a blogging site to be publishing my articles and be sharing with the world.

Prior this time, I didi not know anything about blogging because I lived and worked in a remote village in the south western part of Nigeria.

The person who talked to me about getting a blog site also says I can make money through the creation of the blog site by sharing my fictions with the world.

What he said, “making money” fascinates me because I was sharing those fictions on Facebook for fun. Therefore, when he says this, I started seeking for means to get a blog site.

Not long afterwards I opened my blog sites, but the sites required money for upgrading the account and such money to be is on the high side considering the exchange rate and because I am not sure of how it works, maybe if I am sure of how it works I could have taken loan to upgrade the account. Therefore, not to risk my meager capital, I did not try it.

I, however, keep on exploring the social media since the person has told me of the possibility of earning income through my creative writings on the social media.

Thus, when I saw an advert that “write and earn money”, I clicked on the advert which is that of HubPages.com and registered with the site.

Early Phase on HubPages.com

My initial phase wasn’t palatable because I thought HubPages.com is another social medium where abbreviations is allowed like others.

These I overcame by reading through others articles on this site and learning of how and where to get free and acceptable photos from the internet.

I was inundated with joy when my first article was published on this site.

After the First Article’s Publication

On seeing the template approved by the editorial board of the HubPages.com, I decided to follow the same article to publish some articles more till I hit the first five articles, after which I received message that I can connect my Google AdSense to start earning as a Hubber.

I connected my published article to Google AdSense, but I later discovered that unlike in the advanced climes the AdSense works little in my area.

Since I do not have any online business, I was thinking of how I would start earning, therefore I repeatedly clicked on earning column to see if there are changes to it, but no changes.

Reading Comments of Others

I decided to check what people’s comments are on HubPages.com and I discovered no one really writes or comes forth to speak that she or her has earned a dime through writing for and on HubPages.com.

These comments hit me hard and I said to myself this maybe another “one of those sites’ lies”. I had to abandon the use of HubPages.com for months because I thought having published some articles I should have earned something however meager.

Reading Comments of Others

I decided to check what people’s comments are on HubPages.com on Google and I discovered no one really writes or comes forth to speak that she or her has earned a dime through writing for and on HubPages.com.

These comments hit me hard and I said to myself this maybe another “one of those sites’ lies”. I had to abandon the use of HubPages.com for months because I thought having published some articles I should have earned something however meager.

What Gingers Me

Months after this I decided to login to the site back, not to publish but to read articles and comment. I read of a woman who published that she earned money from her publications and she explained that her earning was double fold. HubPages.com management helped her sell some of her online books through Amazon and through adverts of her published articles. The article stimulated my dormant writing spirit but a question came to my mind.

I will complete this in the second article.
