In this article we will review Hubpages.com and our very own dark mode browser extension called Night Eye, which you can use while visiting your favorite site.
What is Hubpages.com
Founded in 2006 by three founders, Paul Edmonson, Paul Deeds, and Jay Reitz, all former employees of Microsoft, HubPages is a user-generated content and revenue-sharing website. In 2014, by acquiring Squidoo as the main competitor of Hubpages, the site evolved to a multi-site business model in 2016, with the introduction of separate "vertical sites", containing articles covering a group of broadly related subjects. The site includes “membership” option and anyone may contribute Hubs but to earn income, members must hold a valid Adsense account. Hubpages members retain all intellectual property rights to their "Hub Content". They can delete their Hubs at any time, but content as questions, answers, forum posts, ratings, votes, comments on other Hubs, and photos (defined as "Author content") cannot be deleted.
Night Eye dark mode on Hubpages.com
As a Hubpages.com member, or individual who just got familiar with this amazing revenue-sharing website, you can increase your productivity and creativity concerning your Hubs. With Night Eye, you can enable dark mode on your screen and ensure a smooth and relaxing environment for your eyes - less strain, fewer headaches at the end resulting in better productivity. How it’s done? By removing the harmful blue light from your PC or laptop monitor alongside the screen flickering (if existing), your eyes will be safe and secure from symptoms like sore, tired, burning or itching eyes, headaches, and sometimes even blurred or double vision. Such side effects may indeed reduce your focus and concentration, which we can all agree is essential for your creativity and overall success of your user-generated content, directly affecting your revenue from Hubpages.com. Additionally, dark mode is widely considered as the cooler and more stylish looking version in comparison with the standard light mode that most of the websites are using. And Hubpages.com is on that list too.
Why using dark mode is a good idea?
- Improved readability of text
- Better contrast
- Reduced eye fatigue
- Less flicker (if existing issues)
- Less blue light (the main source of negative impact on our eyes while starring at the screen)
