A Hub About A Hub

Updated on June 29, 2011

A Hub

After completing 21 Hubs I must say I have a lot fo respect for hubbers. It was not nearly as easy as I thought it would be nor as lucrative. But it has been cathartic, entertaining, amusing, educational, funny and several other wonderful things to experience. What I have written in my hubs are simply just one side of any argument that can be made. And in some instances I have provided you with more than one side of the argument so to be balanced.

If anything, it is my inspiration to have you smile, laugh or reflect upon what I have written. And not all of my hubs will appeal to all audiences but I have tried to stick with what I understood and let you decide.

12 days and 21 hubs later, it seemed inevitable that I would write about writing hubs.

I haven't exactly been picking up readership or money. That is okay. These are publications. If you eventually read them and like them then great and if not well then I am certain I will write something to appease you later.

What I have learned about myself through this process is that I am a bad editor. I need an editor badly.

21 in 12 days

Could you write 21 hubs in 12 days?

Quizes

It is interesting for me to try and create quizzes for my hubs.  I was a researcher and I am use to creating qualitative analysis so it is hard for me to get the format down on making quizes in my hubs.  But I am learning and in time I will master it or I will let it go.  I just need to spend some time learning the system. 

Comments and Feedback

 I love the people who read my hubs and that comment although I reserve the right to disagree and I truly love the feedback.  It is a most generous community with wonderful people and I appreciate all the interest.  I have tried to read others hubs and I have posted but I haven't quite been able to improve my hubkarma yet.  But it has only been 12 days.  I will learn in time.

Reinforcement

Again, I just want to reaffirm that what I write is not necessarily my opinion but a side of a debate that is going on nationally and internationally. It isn't my personal views. As a writer, I try and take a side and argue it. As a human being I understand that things are much more complex than they seem. So please don't judge me by what I write. I always reserve the option to be wrong.

Writer's Perspective

Do you believe a writer writes their own personal opion or can they be objective?

      Sometimes it is the author presents the truth without a bibiliograpy inorder to have their eader search for the truth. But I agree with you.

      Nice hub. Regarding the writer's perspective, I think it depends on the topic. In my hubs about the history of the space program, for example, I try to be as objective as possible, and focus on presenting just the facts in an enjoyable way. On the other hand, I've written hubs about movies, and they contain a great deal of opinion. So a writer can do both. I think it is the responsibility of the writer to make it perfectly clear which he is doing, though. Often, writers present opinions as fact, which is misleading and unfair to readers.

      Write your hubs for yourself, do not worry about us .

      depend on subject you must objective .

      depend on subject you can objective .

      depend on subject you must not .

      Wow, thank you. You are the first person to be honest enough to explain that. Because I see things though multi-cultures and in multiple languages, I see many perspectives.

      In the debate both nationally and internationally, certain barriers have been put up. Many of my articles are trying to kicked down those barriers and have people entertain ideas they would nto necessarily hear in the USA.

      Thank you so much for your feedback. As a childrens' book author I have dealt with editors and as a research I dealt with editors. I haven't really written for the internet or new before so I am really new. Articles i have published are in journals and the books I hve published are in childrens' homes. I have won contests and awards but not really had any experience doing this. I would like to follow you so to model myself after someone. I just have to figure out how.

      All My Best,

      JT

      I think a good writer should do both: Write objectively as often as possible, but steer readers in a direction (any writer who won't admit that they do that should go back and look at the titles of their past published articles and books :-).
