I'm looking for other history teachers and/or enthusiasts who write lots of hubs that are related to history. I'm always looking for new information that I can incorporate into the courses that I teach. I was also wondering if anyone has success making money from their history related hubs. And if so, how?
In the same way that I incorporate the stuff that I hear on NPR on the way to work. The more examples that I can give to demonstrate points, and the deeper my knowledge of the content, the better I can make the class. It's amazing how often things just pop up in the course of a history class.
Patty Inglish has a series of well-written history hubs and she simply presents the facts, no political bias. she is a very successful hubber, you might want to check her out. http://hubpages.com/hub/USA-history
I am a homeschooler and write a blog about ancient history for my kids to use in their lessons. I write about history topics on hubpages that are interesting to me and will help my blog get exposed to more homeschoolers. My site is http://www.ancienthistoryforhomeschool. I invite you to check it out and leave your comments!
Hi Freeway Flyer, I am new to HubPages but I minored in History at College, and just strated writing some US History Hubs. Would love you to comment on them and see if I am on the right track. About making money--none.
Iam a history hubber, fairly new to this site but i love history and much like yourself I am a teacher as well. i have a couple hubs let me know what you think. I am working on sevral projects that engage student and will be happy to offer any help I can Thanks a million and good luck.
Hi there. There is always a demand for more history writers. I'm not sure if there is a lot of money to be made, but there is a lot of pleasure from getting appreciative comments. Best wishes for all your efforts.
Again what period of history are you interested in?
I write some English and Ancient Egyptian history hubs - you can make some Adsense money from them and sell a few books off Amazon if you can drive enough traffic to them. They don't make nearly as much money as product reviews, 'how tos', and sales hubs though.
I only have a few history hubs, some about Ancient Greece and one about my hometown in England. I make a little money off the Ancient Greece hubs, probably from adverts about Greek villas and holidays, but nothing worth getting excited about.
Shinkicker writes some wonderful Hubs about the history of Glasgow, and LondonGirl will take you on a tour through the history of England. Randy Godwin has some fascinating US history hubs. Iskra1916 and Endamac have the Irish angle covered, and James A Watkins is a fine historian and writer.
There are many more that I have temporarily forgotten, but I rarely have time to read nowadays
History was one of my least favourite subjects and is one of my eldest daughter's favourites - she has a minor in history. However, I have just published, and am continuing to publish a family history that spans almost 150 years and I am now completely hooked on the subject and have an appreciation as to why it is some people are "history buffs". So far I'm on #7 and I am absolutely hooked.
Frogdropping has done a hub on the Lisbon earthquake and another on a diplomat who issued Portuguese visas to Jewish refugees and helped thousands escape the Holocaust. My "High Cost of Virginity" hub is social history, and so are the law student hubs about nitroglycerine and "Eating the cabin boy". Perhaps ask HubPages to set up a history category?
I am preparing my 100th hub, and for that I want to review 100 hubs written by other Hubbers. Please post links to hubs - your own or those of others - that you would want me to include. One link per post, please. I...
Creating a pleasant reading experience depends on many factors. If we just look at word counts, what can we get? Personally, internet reading for me is more for leisure. I do remember I would lose patience myself if the...
