I am pretty thick skinned so I can handle just about whatever is dished out. I am a new hubber. I want to promote my book I am publishing next week. However, I don't want to come across pushy. I also want to get more comments and traffic on this and my main site. I would love to help out new authors trying to find their voice-those who are interested in helping out victims of crime can contact me anytime!
Would anyone care to review my hub and see where I am possibly going wrong? I have taken advice given to others about commenting on other people's works, but I'm still a little lost.
Thanks fellow hubbers!
Hey - welcome to hubpages. I shall wander over and have a look. I'm sure others will do the same - give it time and all that
Asher - I looked. You're hubs are probably on the short side for one. Also there are a few mistakes in and among. If you pick some of the longer serving hubbers out as examples you will get a good idea of what to aim for. You have a lot of tools to hand - text, video, picture capsules and more - and could really lavish some attention on your articles.
There's also a shed load of info in the FAQ's - most is easy to follow/understand.
Your Sharon Tate was pretty good BTW - just paragraph breaks and perhaps fleshed out etc. Add pics and what have you.
Hope that helps
yes,this helped some....I am a writer, and feel like my work is really good. But, commenting on something already in the news or a topic of discussion is a little ackward for me. I would be in my own element if I could just write short stories and submit them as a hub. It seems like everything has been covered in the forums already, so what would I write about? A rhetorical question, if you will....
Hi AK, welcome to HubPages. I got a sense of self-promotion out of the one Hub. I recommend not using bold text. It's too ... 'in your face' appearance. How about writing about the steps required of a author to getting published? a Hub on each step that is and you can link them together or the methods of research used for writing? you have the potential for Hub writing, just need to write for the "audience". how do you speak to people? write the same through your Hubs. you could do some awesome work.
you can write about whatever you want. A hub can be something from the news--a current event, it can be historical or biographical or auto biographical. It can be silly or dramatic, poems or short stories...whatever! As long as whatever you write is from your own mind, you're good
there is an idea section for hubbers looking for ideas to write about and there is also a Q and A section. Both are helpful when looking for ideas. Listen to the frog, though--you want your hubs to be visually appealing, no matter how good of a writer you are or think you are, if your hubs are just a lot of text, poeple may get turned off by it. Check out some other hubbers and see what they do,you'll get the idea
Asher - if you're comfortable with writing short stories, go for it. I'm not really a writer. I'm just someone with too much time on their hands ... so I'm not the best to ask in terms of 'what subject matter' etc.
And you can write about specific topics. Just do some research prior to writing then start to build your article about what you've found.
When I've written something more serious (I'm probably not best known for serious stuff) I've decided on the subject - researched - not just on the net either - then started to create my hub/article. Published once I've finished.
Yes, lots of information out there on the same thing but every person has a different perspective and method of presentation. some will agree and others just might like your style

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it...
