    Simone Smithposted 5 years ago

    As the year is getting started, I have noticed that many people are getting started on various home improvement projects, so I thought I would bring back a modified version of a theme we did about two months ago.

    Do you have any such projects in the works? Write about them in this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration round! Our theme Easy Home Improvement Projects.

    I’ve done a bit of keyword research, and here are some search-friendly titles you might consider using:
    10 Fabulous Home Decorating Ideas
    5 Easy Kitchen Remodel Ideas
    5 Important Home Maintenance Projects
    Budget-Friendly DIY Home Remodeling Ideas
    5 Easy Do It Yourself Projects for Kitchens
    5 Easy Do It Yourself Projects for Bathrooms
    5 Easy Do It Yourself Projects for Bedrooms
    5 Easy Do It Yourself Projects for Living Rooms

      I wrote about 5 Bathroom Decorating Ideas on a Budget, because too frequently I've ran into bland tiny bathrooms and their owners have given up the idea of making them look good because they are so small. My url didn't come out right because I changed the title in the middle and am unsure how to change it but here ya go.  http://tamsr.hubpages.com/hub/5-Practic … sign-Ideas

    I’m looking forward to reading these, not sure if I’ll get one done - it could be a worthwhile challenge though!
    I have written a hub about the WTI, what it is and why to take part, as several people don’t know about it and it took me a while to give it a go. Since it’s not the WTI, I can’t post it here, but Simone I’d be glad if you’d check it over and let me know if you are happy with it, or would like any changes. (I’ll check tomorrow as it’s time for bed in the UK.)

    I have a question--I have a hub that kind of fits this week's theme--partially written and as yet unpublished.  Is there any way to get it to fit into or submit it as part of this week's topic, or not?

    I'm guessing not, as it would have had to go through the links...and since I already started writing it, ... ... ...  Hmmmmm....

    Well...when I do finish it up, is it still ok to post it in here anyway, or is that "against the rules?"

    Oh, and a "P.S." question--if I am writing for the 30-in-30, can that overlap with WTI, and post in both forums?

    1. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      You won't be able to submit it as an answer to the question, but it can still totally count! Just share a link to it in this thread! It's totally not against the rules to do so.
      P.S. OF COURSE!!!

        Thanks Simone, I am still working the kinks out of the first one. I had issues when I was trying to post it. I had a hard time getting things to upload, so I lost a bit of my text. I am working on getting more pictures to add too it. My family has been generous in giving me ideas to create more Redneck hubs.

        I guess I never thought about taking pictures while doing it, just wanted to get the job done. 
        Like to have people use their own mind to picture what it is like, that way it makes them think and focus about what they are doing.
        Guess that's why I don't have an avatar.  Want people to imagine me however they want in their own mind, rather than have a preconceived notion based on an avatar.

    Hi didn't realise that we could do more than 1 so here is my second one of the week, as I enjoyed the first one I thought why not have a bash as a second. I didn't enjoy this one so much... I honestly didn't know much about bathroom remodelling, I do now big_smile

    Hi everyone!

    I've written two topics about kitchen improvement before this WIT came out. So I thought of making another one to complement the hubs I've made previously. Here is the link: http://cliffmendrez.hubpages.com/hub/Ma … ll-Kitchen

    I grew up in a relatively small house with a small kitchen. I thought making a hub about maximizing space in a small kitchen would be of help to other people in the same situation as I am. I hope you find time to read and enjoy my hub.

    I've done 3 bedroom painting hubs previous to this.  It was a lot of work but a lot of fun and the kids LOVE their bedrooms now.  It's amazing how letting them pick out the colors and designs shows about who they are at this age.  Here are the links to my hubs smile

    Like tlpoague, I decided to do a humorous take on the topic, but mine's a little...out there. Maybe way out there. Hopefully it's still acceptable.

      Hahaa! I never thought we'd get so many great humorous Hub out of this topic. What an awesome surprise! This totally cracked me up. And I actually found the various conspiracies and sources of paranoia to be interesting!
      Also, as a side note, I really appreciate your killer awesome image attribution. Not everyone has such great attention to detail.

    This week’s WTI was quite challenging for me, first thinking of an idea and then getting the photos to work. I must have taken a hundred! So here’s hoping what I’ve eventually come up with will be of use to someone.

        Thanks Simone, The lighting of the photos was what caused the challenges - getting clear photos without too many shadows. I’m pleased you think they are great. BTW, did you see I’ve done a hub on the TWI?
