HubPages can also be used to promote your online blogs. By creating topics that relates to your main blog and linking it for futher reference you can give coverage to your main blog.
Make sure that the content is just related and is not the same as the main blog. But for links to be included in your hubs you should first have a hubscore of 75 or above.
HubPage is the right platform if you do not want to restrict your writing into just one idea. Here you have the opportunity to write many hubs which would be regarded as individual pages.
