Hi guys. I'm new here and was just wondering what might be some good topics to write about. Can it be about anything we know about or maybe an opinion on something. I like to dance, travel, and have three little girls so I have some ideas I'm tossing around, just not sure where to start. Any tips or suggestions would be great!
Hi and welcome to hubpages
I would suggest let the ideas start flowing, by focusing on recent trips or events that you had just witnessed. Write about your opinions on the latest world news. You can write basically whatever you want. Try writing some ideas on a notepad first and the first one that comes to mind, start writing a rough draft about that particular topic. I usually write about nature space and medical/health articles, because these are not only topics that I know the most about, but also am interested in as well. Hope this helps you out and good luck.
Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Being a stay at home mom, I don't really expect to make a lot but any extra cash would be nice. I definitely have some ideas going about children since we have three little girls. I'll definitely be writing after their in bed tonight lol!
Write about what interests you. Be thorough about it. Take your time with it. Do a good job. Proof read it for mistakes and to see if it is how you want it or if you would want to change anything.
Do this in a word document ifrst then copy the finished product onto hubpages.
You can write on any topic you please - although if you're here for money you'll need to do some learning along the way.
Check out the FAQ for what you can and can't write about, and look at some other hubs around the site.
Write about your interests - doing some research - don't forget the photos - and check to see what topics will bring in good revenue. It's complicated, but I started just writing about things I like to do and places and included some of my photos as well as others I found. Movie reviews have been good for me and reviews of other things as well. The great thing about HP is that you don't have to find a narrow niche and stick there - you can be very diverse - even write fiction! Welcome, and good luck
I suggest you write about what you enjoy, especially if this is the first time you've been published online. If you write what you enjoy then you will quickly develop a nice portfolio.
Although I can't do it, writing in one or two niches is generally advantageous as there is greater potential for earning - but only if you choose niches that are profitable and not too competitive.
Its a really good but steep learning curve. Hubpages is an excellent community of helpful writers. Welcome.
Write about the things that you are passionate about. Write on those things that you are knowledgeable about, whatever you write make sure that you are providing useful information.
A hub hop will give you some ideas (there could be some crap there too)
Look around and open your eyes to the world around you and ideas will flow.
Welcome to Hp and best wishes to you!
I really hate to inject controversy here, but I don't think official "Hub Hopping" will help either a newbie or HubPages staff.
1) The Hub Hopper is a filter that catches certain Hubs, those on which an experienced Hubber should make a decision. It is my impression that when a Hubber does not flag a hub for staff review, it passes into the system at large, and if bad, will only be encountered later by random chance. This isn't the place to get into what should or should not be flagged, but it shouldn't be done by newbies.
2) An excellent place for newbies to read for ideas is http://hubpages.com/hubs/best/. At the top of that page, selecting either Best or Hot will yield excellent examples. Selecting Latest will contain a mix of good and not-so-good. At the right side of that page is a list of topics. Browse through those and their subtopics down to as many as 4-5 levels.
I would like to disagree with you..hubhopping is not just for flagging..it is meant for reading new hubs and rating them or flagging.. ideas are found everywhere and hoping is one such place. I do not see why hubhopping should not be done by newbies..that is a feature provided for all by Hubpages., so why would you want to limit it.?
The featured hubs are just one of the options and not the end of it.
Filters are different from hubhopping ..this is a feature provided to enrich hub reading experience for all
I don't intend to pursue this. I do want to make it clear that the Hub Hopping feature to which I refer is that which is titled "Help us out, Hop some hubs" and appears only on the "My Account" page, just below the search box.
You are entitled to your opinion. Nether do I intend to go on with this discussion.
Write about what you like, what interests you. If you are interested chances are others are as well
Try to stick to topics that will be evergreen, that is, not necessarily the latest news, but ones readers will still be wanting to read about a year down the road. If you have three little girls, write about parenting or sibling rivalry or the best kind of birthday party for little girls. If you've gone vacationing with children, you could write a hub about the best family friendly places to vacation. You could write about how to get three children to bed at time...advice for new moms, write about what you know!
JesseO3 what I like most about hub pages is where ever my thoughts flow I just get it down and publish it. It is my belief that if you write about what you know and love your niche will find you. When it does, that is the time to do your keyword search. If you decide you don't want to keep the first things published they can be deleted.
I personally concentrate on three areas, my past, my past when I had no memory of things past, and the present. People are reading and saying my work has value that is good enough for me.
Welcome to hub pages, enjoy
Children/parenting are always good sources of writing ideas. Try to make your topics timeless so they will still be fresh months from now. If you can provide nuggets of wisdom or a 'lesson' while doing so, that's even better. Don't give just give us anecdotes, tell us why that anecdote is important or what you learned from an experience that we will benefit from as well.
There are a lot hubs for new writers describing what to do and not do. Click Hubs at the top, then Hub tutorials on the right side. You can click thru the hottest, best and latest hubs on the subject.
Here is one about what Not to Do on hubpages:
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-New-Hubbers … r-Hubscore
For me, I try to write about something that I do not know anything about. I go online and research the topic for about a day or two and then I sit down and try to write a series of articles about the same topic. I then link the hubs together to attract more traffic. It has worked for me so far, and it is always recommended to write sets of articles that you can link together.

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?

(I hope 'hubbing' is a colloquial verb. If it is not, I just made a major fool of myself.)I created a Hubpages account a few days ago. Since then, I've written three Hubs. Two are published and there is a third in QA....

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I...
