There are templates now that help with creating hub pages. You will also notice there are more quality hubs since there are certain restrictions on the site. The site is still quite active and is doing well in search engines. So if you want a place to share what's on your mind, you might want to head over to the site. They also still have their systems in place to help you earn money too.
Here are my latest Hub Pages:
Black People Around the World
Questionable Epidemics in the United States
A World of Toys Not in Walmart, Toys R Us, Target and Other Mainstream Stores
Loved Ones with Toxic Behaviors
Population Reduction Issues - Greed, Power
