How do the site masters work it?
I'm looking at adding several different things to diversify this next year. I have tried a few of the writing sites and have two that I am currently working. I want to add in a few blog sites with niches and then revamp my own personal website to show what all I am doing.
When I look at it, I know I need to stay organized and on top of things in order to bring in some money and not let anything fall to the wayside. So, how do you all work it? Do you spend a day here at hubpages then the next on a different project or do you do a conglomerate of it all during the day?
I am currently making my own personal website and one blog, plus I am starting to write a book, I need time to do all of these things,
I need discipline and dedication to do all these things, thank you guys for all the incites here, Lynne and Nelle
Oh man need to add that to the list too Maita. I have one book finished and another about half way there and I really need to start scouting the first out again for publication.
I hope you can published soon Lynne, you are really a hardworker, same with crazd...
hey if you find an agent before me or if I find an agent before you, why don't we put in a good word for one another...just tell me your genres too and I'll make sure the agent I look for accepts those ones too
I will. I write romance. It is a little twisted in that most of it deals on some level with a different look at the paranormal.
okay I just thought of a ghost and a human getting it on sorry bad me I know.
I'll make sure when I look into my book for literary agents for novels and short stories they like your genre too
Oh and for my genres...you know 'em by now
You need to ready "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Niffenrager author of time traveler's wife. She sorta has that in her plot.
Good for you Lynne - I like the way you're planning and getting serious.
First of all I am a morning hubber. I write my hubs and then I create my backlinks. I have a giant desk calendar with big boxes and I write the hubs (and the hub identity that created them - I do have more than one, but they never come to the forums.) And then I add them to my excel spreadsheet.
I then take a shower and go out for a brisk 60 minute walk to clear my head and change gears.
I come back in and I work on my blogs (which also have static pages, so they look more like traditional websites as well). I write a post on most of them. Add this to the calendar and the excel spead sheet. I love to see the blocks fill up with product.
At least 3 days a week, I visit my favorite stores - Wal Mart, Target, jewelry stores to see what's new. At least once a week I hit the library to read magazines. I spend some time watching QVC. I have a notebook for product trends and good sales copy ideas.
My workday is about 10 to 12 hours log - six to seven days a week. I have not yet learned the art of passive income.
Alot of this is spent monitoring merchant emails, updating coupon offers and sales details. Just basic merchandizing. Then I find out that a merchant has thrown me out of a program and the whole work plan goes out the window as I replace a thousand links.
organuzed..organized...what does that word mean?
and yea still haven't touched my website either lmao
YOU GO GIRL!
Taking notes Nelle, taking lots of notes. First order of business then get me a huge calendar not my itty bitty one. Second get familiar with my spreadsheet program.
CW: you will get there. Organized is like an OCD thing with me. Everything has to be in its place or I can't work.
Hopefully, more will chime in here.
Only time I'm organized well sort of, is when I'm working at a preschool
So lynne do you actually have a list written out so you can post it somewhere where you can see it? i have mine on the cofee table
and true Maita but...doesn't mean I'm oragnized lol just means I actually sat down and finished something
I actually have printed out research material. No formal list and that is the problem at the moment. I need to get the other sites set up for the niches and all. I have a website as you know it was dedicated originally to my writing but I want to switch that up. I have an external blog attached to that where I have posted other written articles on varying topics. I also have a wordpress blog that is sitting empty right now.
All of this needs to be organized and linked to each other as well as my hubpages articles and life123 articles. I'm determined to master this plan though as I'm not finding work outside my home right now.
Yea I am looking to work on that website of mine now since I too can't find a job. was actually looking into writing greeting cards for some extra money. I read that they will pay $50-150 sometimes even $500 for one verse for greeting cards
I think I could do that...maybe you should look into it too!
Alexandria, I'm going to hold ya to that,
Holly: Nelle is a great one to take notes from. I floundered around until I came across her and started studying what she was doing.
Sounds like a good read. I will have to check that out.
CW: I might have to look into that card writing thing. Let me know if you do it and how it goes.

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...

I have over 60 hubs now and could have several hundred before year end. I have been using groups so far to handle the hubs I have, but would like to hear how others with hundreds of hubs manage them.Thank you.

I have been a member of hub pages for 11 months now and am starting to find my way around with the help of many hub pages friends. Does anyone know of a very simple way to create your own website or blog page. I say...
