I leave for college next weekend. I will still have internet access, but I don't think I'll have much time to write or participate here, so I've set a goal: to write 4 featured hubs in the next 5 days to bring me up to 50 hubs, get my 100th follower (I only have 1 left), and then write 1 hub a month and leave comments here and there.
What I'm worried about is that I'll lose followers (not technically) and lose time through my inactivity as I did last semester. Do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can do during college to keep the ball rolling here?
Study by writing about what you are learning. One of the members here even writes about how to solve math equations. You could write about a historical event that you need to remember the details about.
Good luck in college and don't forget to have a fun time.
That's a pretty good idea. I have uploaded actual college assignments (after they've been graded), but I suppose I could write on what I'm learning even if it's not for an assignment. Thanks for the suggestion.
As WriterJanis suggested, perhaps you can set a goal to write one hub on a weekend. If you have other things you want to do with your free time on the weekend and don't want to spend a few hours working on a hub, you could write a little bit in a notebook whenever you have time and then just type it in on Saturday or Sunday morning.
Best of luck in your studies. I like the notebook idea. That way he doesn't have to devote hours on a weekend to making a hub. You are very wise to start something like writing for Hub Pages when you are young.
Congrats on heading back to college, and on your 100th follower (I read that post!). Your time at school will be a good chance to let your hubs get more Google juice - that takes time. And writing one a month is a really good and realistic goal.
During those times when you check in at HP, take a few minutes to read & comment on the HOTD, and check out any hubs that appear on your feed. That's a good way to keep a presence here, and to meet more writers (and maybe reach 150 followers!).
Good luck this semester - we will be thinking of you!
So many of you jumped in with good advice to help me after my hubs crashed and burned last week that I was overwhelmed. I love this community! I know, too, that many of you have been reading my work to help...
I had one near miss at achieving 30 hubs in 30 days and then earlier this year I took on the challenge again and completed it.Going to have another go at it so I am starting today as I do not want to be challenged over...
I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have...
