Why I Like Writing On HubPages
For me, HubPages is by far my most productive writing site. Why?
(1) Satisfaction: I love writing informative, in-depth articles that have an impact on readers, and HP has been perfect for that. I don't really write for the money, and the articles I'm really proud of are the ones I put the effort into to make them good hubs.
(2) Residual income: Hubs continue to produce income long after they are written. So far, that hasn't been the case for me with PP and most other sites I write for - on those sites the views my articles get when published are usually all they ever get. (The other place I get some residual income is Writedge).
(3) Exposure: With 66 hubs and 349 followers, I can be pretty sure that any new hub I post will immediately be seen by at least 100 readers (mostly other hubbers at first). That's more than many of my articles on other sites have gotten in their entire existence. The counter argument to that is that I could probably write 100 articles here on Persona Paper, for example, in the time it takes me to research, write, and format a hub. But that goes back to my first reason above - for my own satisfaction, I'd rather write the hub!
(4) Value per view: The CPM of my HP views is usually about twice the value of a Persona Paper view, which in turn, is itself about twice the value of a view on sites like Writedge and Daily Two Cents.
I've written a hub that provides an in-depth comparison of several sites, including HubPages and Persona Paper. You can read it at http://hubpages.com/hub/Review-HubPages-vs-InfoBarrel-Bubblews-Writedge-Persona-Paper-Seekyt-Wizzley
