I am unique in many ways. I do not believe in accept the status quo in anything. I believe that one should always question authority and read between the lines in all situations.
Each person is an individual entity and should be respected as such. In this society, there is a morbid emphasis on utter conformity to be part of the crowd and to feel secure. People who are often individualists and nonconformists are derided and considered outsiders. However, it is the individualists and nonconformists who usually think outside the box and proceed to create and innovate new methodologies.
Parents should encourage their children's unique gifts and perspectives instead of making the children cookie cutting replicas of the majority. Just because EVERYONE has the same consensus, does not mean that it is the correct consensus. Have these parents thought that maybe the majority consensus is just a convenient one at the moment. The child who has quite an individual perspective is one that could create a care for cancer and/or invent new technology which could greatly improve society. Uniqueness and differences should be embraced and encouraged, not denigrated!
To hazelwood4: I have stated how I felt about the subject. However, I found that your hub was very beautiful and inspirational. You have truly written from the heart and that is the most important thing. God bless!
Wrylilt, Some of my inspirational Hubs do extremely well with views though, but I do understand completely. Just curious, what type of subjects do you recommend writing on that generate the most in adsense income? I do look forward to reading your suggestions.
I wrote something like this the other day which I feel pretty much sums it up.
When writing to earn/get ongoing traffic, you need to consider two things: 1. Searchers. What will people be typing into Google to find YOUR hub. 2. Competition. Are there many other pages/sites/articles on the internet on your topic and can you beat them in the search engines?
Can I ask what amount you mean by decent traffic and its source? (hubpages, Google, Facebook etc).
Well, I am getting a few hundred views a day on a few of my articles, and most of this is Google.com traffic. I know this could be alot better if I was doing more keyword research. A few years ago I wrote an article on another site that had 100,000 views so far, but I have not been able to reproduce this again. Thank you for the help. Do you have any Hubs that you would recommend I read on the subject? Thanks again for the help.
My earnings from the Hp ad program are pretty steady and rising. I really have enjoyed writing for the site. I am on vacation next week, and I am going write a few Hubs that week. How long have you been writing online?
I used to be a hubber and I posted how to's and informational hubs, but I got burnt out because it wasn't my niche. I have written one short story now, do you think creative writing is a good way to go on hubpages?
I got in on EHOW towards the very end just a few months before it imploded. I was making decent money right away----MUCH more than what I make per adsense per hubpages, etc. However, I disliked a number of...
