Hi there all.
I have put a few of my poems on hub pages and I was wondering if it's better to:
a> put each poem in a separate hub
b>put all poems together in one hub (as I have ATM)or
c>a few hubs each with all the poems about a certain topic?
Ideas and opinions appreciated.
I put one up at a time. Each poem has a meaning and I like it to be by itself. It is like an individual picture as opposed to a montage.
I'm not sure if you know this already or not, but if you put poems up separately, you can link them to each other through a group. That would let you categorize them by topic (or anything else) without putting all of them in a single hub.
Some people here put a few together - I put up each one on their own. I feel that each one is a lot of work, much more than a standard info type hub. There is an issue with word count - i get over this by putting up some comment about the poem at the top (and make this enough to push the poem lines below the adverts so that the lines display as written) and I always add a picture - maybe a few would be better. This bulks it up and gets the hub found for the pic I believe?
Hope this is helpful.
For me, I tend to put each of my literary pieces up individually, unless they come as a set to be read as one poem or some other variation of that. I find that placing all poems in one hub can detract from the overall effectiveness of the poem's ability to reach the reader on an emotional level. Too many topics, too many pieces, too much of anything can cause a turmoil that isn't needed in our already confusing/stressful lives. However, to each Author their own. I think partially it depends on the overall personality and mood you present.
Also, I love the fact that you have No-Face as your icon. We had someone cosplay him/her/it at Tora-con this year.
In any event, best of luck to you. I hope this was at least of some use.
Thanks all for your help. I originally put them all up individually but then put them all into one, now I might break them up again. Cheers!
No problem! Anything I can do to help. I just know for people like me, who have ADD or some other chemical imbalance or focus problem, having multiple poems on one page can make someone go crazy. XD
LOL - I have AD/HD too, and I was going crazy looking at my OWN page!!! (Hence my initial question)
Thanks again - Busy defragmenting now...
By the way, I don't have trouble focusi... Do you like waffles?

Has it been copied? Wondering why this one Hub is getting so many views. All the rest are sleepers. What would cause that? Help!
