Many of us discover HubPages by mistake – we stumble across a hub when searching for something online and start poking around the site from there. lisa.bom on HubPages is one of those hubbers – Having joined HubPages three months ago, lisa.bom has since used the site to help improve her writing. In the future, she hopes to begin making money on the site. We had a short chat with lisa.bom about her experience; you can read it below:
HubPages – What brought you to HubPages?
lisa.bom – I had just started a new medication. While I was searching for information a hub came up. After reading what I wanted, I saw many other hubs that interested me, some of which were personal. So, I decided to write something to see if others were interested in what I had to say.
What did you expect to get from HubPages?
At first, I just wanted to read all the different subjects. Now, after reading about how to make a little money, I would like to see if I can make a little by writing something that other people like to read.
How have your expectations changed over time?
I have been writing for only a short while. I have learned that I have to go back on some of my hubs and rework some of them to get a higher number [HubScore]. I have as yet to make even a penny. Luckily, that is not the main reason I am here. To make money I would have to write the same types of hubs as everyone else. That’s not me.
How has HubPages changed your writing?
Because I try and write a hub a day, I am getting much better and putting the subject in order that make sense. Writing daily has also raised my spelling knowledge, which is one of my weakest subjects.
What do you hope to do with HubPages in the future?
For the future, I would like to have others and get something out of what I am writing about. I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t like a little money as well.

lisa.bom exemplifies many fellow hubbers who first utilize the site for knowledge, then to develop better writing skills, and eventually to make money. It’s important to note, though, that one can find success at every level on HubPages – from finding information one is seeking to simply improving one’s writing or discovering the work of likeminded authors.
It is fun to make money on HubPages though! 😀 For more advice on how to begin earning significant money on HubPages, visit our Learning Center.

Glad your here lisa.born. I am also learning a lot on hubpages. I think most of us need to brush up on our skills, and this seems like the perfect place to do it. Wishing you the best!
I follow lisa.bom..hehe! i joined this sight only a couple of weeks ago (discovered by accident like lisa.bom), but when i was poking around in HubPages i found her and was drawn to her. i am not quite as motivated as her to write a hub a day, but i was thinking more like a hub a week…lol. maybe that will pick up as i get the hang of all of it and can navigate around better. one thing i know for sure, this is a great community, and i love being here!!
I joined HubPages a couple of weeks ago, but did not do anything and I logged in today and was surprised at all the different things you could read about. I will eventually write a hub a week, but before I do that I just want to get a feel of the whole site, Hubpages reminds of something I do, its called People watch and this just takes it one step further, you get to see what people have in their minds when they actually take the big step to put their thoughts on paper or for want of a better phrase .. to put it in writing…… I am loving it so far, I will attempt to write a hub before next weekend…
