"How To Write The Next Hub Of The Day!"
1 Write an obvious how-to that any child can understand: "How to Change a Light Bulb without Getting Burned!"
2 Include lots of obvious steps and explanations: "Wait until the light bulb cools before removing it from the socket or you may get burned!"
3 Use neutral, PC, and arid language that can offend no one: "Light bulbs come in all sizes, shapes, colors, nationalities, creeds, and races! No one light bulb is any better than any other! In the world of light bulbs, all light bulbs are equal!"
4 Use frequent exclamation points for emphasis: "Voila! It's that easy! Don't you feel smarter after reading this obvious hub?!! I know I do! We're both smarter now, aren't we?!"
5 Include lots of fuzzy, I mean, HD quality pictures that you took yourself to document every step--no matter how excruciatingly dull that step is: "First, make sure your light bulb has burned out! This picture shows me pointing at a burned out light bulb! Notice how there is no light! We need to do something about this, don't we?!! Let's change a light bulb together!"
6 In general, assume your reader is brain dead, especially in your introductory paragraph: "You like light, don't you?! Of course you do! Everyone likes light. Otherwise, we'd all be in the dark! You'd like to be able to see what you're doing, right?! Well, light is the answer! But what if your light doesn't work?! What on earth will you do?!"
(Hmm, he thought. This does have the makings of a fine hub. I think I should copyright it now so no one steals it ... :~) )
