@nickmessenger The nice thing about a site like HubPages, Squidoo, and EzineArticles is that they already have an established network with traffic. HubPages especially has a nice community, so if you comment on a few other hubs in your industry, you’ll attract other HubPage users to your posts. Plus you don’t have to be a big user to have your hub/article selected as a good one by the moderators. I created one for a client on a new account that made the top 10 hubs for the day / week which meant it was emailed out to all HubPages members. Lots of traffic for that one! Free blogs on Blogger or WordPress, on the other hand, would require you to promote it out on social media to attract traffic.
