50 Ways, Topics & Ideas to Write A Hub or Online Article!

Updated on July 13, 2009

In honor of my 50th published hub!

I wanted to write my 50th hub about some aspect of HubPages and thought it'd be fun to brainstorm some ideas, topics and tips to give others inspiration to write hubs. There are so many things to write about, but sometimes a little inspiration can go a long way.

Tips for writing when you're stuck!

  1. Brainstorm your next hub by using this method.
  2. Look through your old computer files and publish old research papers or essays from class that are interesting. (Make sure they haven't been published online before!)
  3. Write a hub on topics from your major.
  4. Write about a topic that you know nothing about, but want to know more.
  5. Browse Google Trends for ideas.
  6. Write about your favorite celebrity.
  7. Look around your house for products that absolutely love and review them.
  8. Write about your last trip.
  9. Think of topics that your friends might be interested in reading.
  10. Write about your experiences in life. College; parenting; relationships, etc.
  11. Write a "How to" article on your favorite hobby!

  13. Ask your family and friends what topics they'd like to see.
  14. Write a review on your favorite movie!
  15. Look through some old family cookbooks and publish your recipes.
  16. Write about ways that you, personally, save money.
  17. Bring a little notebook with you wherever you go to write down your ideas!
  18. Write a hub on every car you've ever owned and what your experiences were like.
  19. Write a hub on your worst date, EVER!
  20. Write about your favorite places to write your hubs; your porch, the coffee shop, etc.
  21. Write about your favorite websites that you use online.
  22. Get ideas by searching through news message board forums where people have constant discussion about the issues.
  23. Write about your favorite form of exercise.
  24. Watch the evening news and write about of the major headlines and give your opinion on it.
  25. Read through the dictionary; look for words that inspire you.
  26. Write about what it's like to be an owner of your breed of pet/s.
  27. Write about one of the activities you did today. I.e., I got an oil change, so I'll write about oil changes, how important they are, how much they cost, etc.
  28. Go shopping and purchase a few similar products for you to try, review and compare.
  29. Write about your favorite music album, ever and give reasons why!
  30. Constantly be aware of things happening around you and make a note to write about them; i.e. crazy neighbors and how to deal with them, how to teach your child to tie his shoe, etc.
  31. Write about issues that you deal with at work.
  32. Watch television to get ideas; pay attention to the commercials, be inspired by images and quotes.
  33. Write about an illness or disease that you or a family member have to deal with on a continual basis.
  34. Write a review on your town or a major city in your country or state.
  35. Concoct your ultimate dream vacation and write a hub about exactly what you'd do there.
  36. Read National Geographic and other travel magazines to inspire travel hubs.
  37. Look through flickr to gain inspiration on topics.
  38. Write about your favorite season (fall, winter, etc.) and why!
  39. Write about the characters from your favorite television show.
  40. Start to build or create an item and photograph your progression and final product; hub about it!
  41. Write about what your ultimate, dream job would be and why.
  42. Listen to the radio to get ideas from commercials and radio announcers.

      Get Idea to Writing Review 

      6 years ago

      I am a beginner, it's the obstacles that often happens to me is lost and the lack of ideas for writing articles. And I want to earn income online. Surely the ability to write articles online must be owned. Your article is very useful for me. Maybe in addition, when you were confused and lost or lack of ideas to write, just write your confusion. When a few ideas to write, just write. When you get bored, just write. By writing a single word, it will be a single sentence when you start to write it. thanks.

      Hehe thanks. I'm in between projects at work right now and have finished up all my classwork for the semester. So....I have lots of time on my hands! :D I've written about some of these ideas, but thought it'd be cool to give others a resource if they get stuck and need some inspiration. I don't plan on writing about all of the topics (like sports, for example...really bores me!)
