I find that many hubbers write about a topic they know extremely well, or are passionate about. My mind has a tendency to flit from topic to topic. Is this too big a hindrance in this forum?
write a hub about how hard it is to stay on topic!! you must have had to do it once in a while, what tips do you have to give others, like me, who have a hard time with it?
now I'm serious here, not "funnin' ya",
but how about writing just as the problem you are describing?
hey I have this issue
this what happens
this is what it causes
these thoughts to fix it
then just focus enough to work it into capsules
I can stay on topic (mostly) while I'm writing an article. It's sticking to one central theme I find impossible. It's always been my problem, too many things catch my attention. What's that old saying- "Apprentice to many- expert at none." My problem in a nutshell. If you still want my advice after that, I'd say, stick to your one consuming passion, if you have one. By the way, Love the name [No sarcasm involved]
Trying to get to people to stick to a topic is a lostcause, lostcatgirl.
You;re extremely prolific and well written, I think I hate you! Seriously, where do you find the time and energy to get it all done?
Well, I am retired-- but that, in itself, doesn't seem to give more time.
I have been here for awhile-- also, a lot of my earlier things (to which I still have the rights) were previously published on actual paper, or in some cases, pressed into clay tablets.
Take a look at my Hubs and you'll see I write on a variety of topics. It's actually a good idea at first, because you may be surprised what topics make money and what doesn't.
Hi lostgirlscat welcome to HubPages. Authors are allowed to write about whatever they choose as long as it's within HP allowed topics. Just read the FAQ under help.
I think I should change my hubber name to JMO, (just my opinion), because I'm far from being an expert, very very far, but I think you could make a great hub out of that very question. I bet you are not alone in this issue and could make a great hub by expounding on why you think it might be a hunderance.
Again, you can write about whatever you like and solving everyday problems is a great topic.
I think its fine, remember to group your hubs to help organize them,
Staying to one topic is stupid for these reasons:
-If its too populated on google you will get no traffic.
-If no one wants to pay for ad for that you don't make money.
-If you run out of things to write wth do you do then?
Reasons why its a GOOD thing:
-Can send lots of traffic and repeat traffic.
-Can get followers because they like what your writing about always.
-Allows you to become an authority figure in it quicker.
Hope the list helps, but very few are successful in writing and sticking with one topic,
Thanks thranax, for reminding me.
As thranax says, if you try to focus on one topic and you pick the wrong topic, you may find it's either unpopular or it's too popular and has too much competition. Either way, you'll make no money and you may run out of things to say anyway.
If you find yourself wanting to write on a single topic, have lots of things to say, and find that it attracts good traffic - at that point, you're probably ready to start your own blog or website anyway.

Hi, I am new here and I don't have any ideas for writing a hub. Is anyone who can give me tips and suggestions?

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool"....
