Quora.com Offers a Free Blogging Platform

Looking for a free blog publishing platform and also a community where you can find answers to various questions. Quora.com was established by former Facebook employees. They wanted a place where people could come together, discuss matters intelligently, ask questions, get various answers and solutions and probably … I don't know because nobody really told me this … but I'm guessing they would like to make the world a better place. Don't we all want to do that?


It's been a while since I updated a blog that I started there back in 2013. I have really neglected a valuable tool and resource. What's my excuse? Uuumm ... I've been busy!

At any rate, I updated it today. You can submit answers to questions at the site and then post your answer as a blog post. Why do that? Well because the people who read the answers VOTE and of a truth, your answer could get lost in the count. Going to search for again can sometimes be difficult. But if you save your response as a blog post, you can retrieve it more readily. Besides, I used to have a blog called "Dispensable Thoughts" on ; but it was deleted. This blog is like my replacement for that blog. My thoughts may be dispensable and never get voted up as "best answer" at a Q&A , but they are still my thoughts, and I'm saving them.

Do you mean that you save your answers on quora as a blog post? That's an interesting idea. Or are you having to save them elsewhere? I used to answer questions on webanswers and yahoo answers and never saved the information, which was a shame.

Yes! I can save my answers as a blog post. Isn't that a fabulous feature??

Absolutely. Hubpages asks if you want to make a hub when you answer or comment but the amount of work involved in creating a hub page article is offputting if you only wanted to make a short comment.

I know! That's what makes the Quora blogging platform an even better idea!

I've been contemplating joining Quora for some time but I've never got around to reading their TOS, so I haven't signed up yet. To the best of my knowledge Quora don't pay for contributions but is there any other way of earning money for one's efforts?

Quora is intended to be an intelligence community. It was created by people who use to work for Facebook who envisioned a social/professional community similar to Facebook, only where people could and would engage in intelligent conversation. It's an “ideal” and a good thing to aim for. :) :D

I must say that sometimes if I want to research a topic, Quora is like StumbleUpon. I can usually find some information. It's not set up as a revenue-share site or for affiliate marketing. It's kind of like how Persona Paper is now set up, where you do a summary and then link to a more detailed article. Lots of people link back to their blogs and websites or articles. What some people do is pick a question, supply an answer and then if there's more about the subject that they've written elsewhere, they'll provide the link.

Some people say it helps get traffic to their sites. I've never really used it that way. But I believe them. (Scratching my head.) Why would they make that up? :) emoticon :grin:
(Sorry. I'm sort of in a silly mood today. Ignore my jokes.)

If it can be used that way it might be worth a try... when I can find time. I'm already struggling to cope with everything I'm doing right now.
