Favorite Topics to Write About

There was this question from Hubber recently awakened :

What is your favorite topic to write about?

I have written an answer for the same. But the answer got so lengthy, I thought, why not convert that answer into a hubpage! Great idea to write about!

There are several ideas and topics that float in my mind. But the moment I sit down to write on a particular topic, the ideas disappear! A well thought topic! A well thought logic gets lost!

Sometimes I do jostle down ideas in notepad or Sticky Notes in Window 7. I have already transferred these ideas into hubpages. Some are still sticking around in my Window 7 desktop.

And coming to answer the question from "Recently Awakened", I have cut down my answer in parts - each topic discussed in each part!

Movie Buff: Movies and Entertainment...

I have grown up watching movies. Lots of Hindi (also known as Bollywood cinema) and Tamil (Kollywood cinema) movies. My favorite during that time was Rajesh Khanna in Hindi and Shivaji in Tamil.

Years later, my interest in movies is intact. In fact, my interest has expended, from Hindi & Tamil to include other languages film - Telugu, Kannada and English. My favorite heroines are listed in separate hubpage (click here to read it).

For write hubpages, "Movies and Entertainment" are one of my favorite topic. I already have write several hubpages on this topic. And will continue to write more on this topic. My expertise is in Indian movies. To keep track of new releases, I have started writing a monthly HubPage on the Bollywood Movie Release in month. For Bollywood Releases of August, click here.

Under the same topic, I can write on Movie Reviews and profile of my favorite actors / actress. Going forward, under this topic "Movies and Entertainment", I am planning to write:

  1. Movie Release dates for each month (monthly hubpage)
  2. Profile and short bio on my favorite actor / actress
  3. List Best movies in different genre (like top 5 comedies or top 10 grossing Hindi movies etc..)
  4. List Most favorite actors, actresses, directors

Foodie - Food and Cooking

I have a good appetite. I eat well and well too much sometimes. I am fond of good food. But I am a poor cook. I can follow recipe - a written recipe. My wife cooks reasonable well to satisfy my taste bud. She experiments a lot in kitchen and make to taste her dishes. I have always given her plus marks only - even if any dish is in poor taste.

At home there is sudden surge in learning new recipes and trying. We all started watching Cooking or Food shows on the television (currently we are following Australia MasterChef). During one of the episode of MasterClass, there was a chocolate recipe - very simple to make, but looked very sophisticated. I wondered how simple it was to make a chocolatey dish, that looked very complex and difficult to make. Read my first chocolate recipe here [How to make chocolate fudge without much fuss]

I tried and succeeded. And this hooked me to try more chocolate recipes. I have done a couple of chocolate recipe and posted them as hubpages. Check these mouth watering chocolate delights here, here and more!

Food and Cooking indeed is vast subject. You can write so much... the recipes, the tips, about the restaurants and write about various world cuisines. I have my own plans to write under this topic...

  1. Simple chocolate recipes (have written a few hubs on the topic, will write more)
  2. Deserts and cakes (with, or without chocolates)
  3. Cool and hot beverages
  4. Tips and Tricks in cooking (collecting some useful tips and practicing some of them)
  5. Recommending restaurants / eat outs in and around Bangalore, India
  6. Write recipes on non-vegetarian dishes (my favorite is chicken, learning to cook)


I love Chocolate... discovering new chocolate recipes!

Travel and places

I love to travel. I love to travel for fun. During teen, I travel aimlessly, without any reasons...

I still remember, my first travel as excursion to Ooty (Ootacamund) with my colleagues in early 1980s. The travel was fun and adventurous, as we started our journey impromptu. None-the-less, it was fun filled.

And Ooty, I have traveled the most. And I have hubpage on my travel to Ooty (Ooty travel to blue mountain queen of hill stations). I have write couple of more hubs on my own traveling experience - for example, my family outing to Goa.

Writing on the topic of Travel and places has vast scope. You have various sub-subjects to write about. I am exploring various places of travel interest. And I will pen my experiences of travel and visits. Travel and Places are indeed one wonder topic with plentiful scope to write about.

I am working on the following already:

  1. My visit to Hampi - with photos I shot there...(I visited Hospet in Karnataka for a friend's wedding. Close by is Hampi, a World Heritage Site!).
  2. My visit to Coorg (Kodagu district in Karnataka) - with my personal photos
  3. Places of interest in Karnataka
  4. Taj Mahal
  5. Places to visit in India
  6. Most famous buildings of the world

Random Thoughts...

There are more topics on which one can write. Here are some random thoughts...

Technology... example: write your experiences on using Gmail, how you discovered some interesting features of Gmail etc...

Your work: example, how supply chain works for a apparel industry (I am planning one such hub)

Tips on Life: example, how to relieve from stressed life. Or, how to have good sound sleep (I have already written one).

Beauty tips: example: how to safe face during monsoon. The topic is very vast, you can write a lot on, hair, natural remedies, etc..

@KDuBarry03 : thanks KDuBarry03 for your visit and leaving a comment. You must watch Bollywood (Hindi) movies. Almost all movies will have some songs and dances. Whatever is storyline, songs and dances will be incorporated into the movies. If you don't like the storyline, then at least you got to see some good songs and dances.

@Recently Awakened THANK YOU Recently Awakened for asking the question in the first place. It inspired me to write this hub. Besides, your question made me to sit and think about various subjects and topics to write home about. And thanks for voting up this hub.

@jainismus I am glad you liked the hub. Welcome to the Hub World. Be in touch!

@rajan jolly ji... Glad to note that you liked this hub and voted up. I have seen that you are very active in hubpages. Already it seems that you have more than 24-hours a day!

I like your suggestions to write on other topics and look forward to your travel and cooking hubs. I usually write on health but after a year am ready to add more variety. Some people write on what will rank high in google and get hits but I continue to just write what I am passionate about. Thanks for the great information!
