A Note to My HubPages Followers
Hello and Thanks to My HubPages Followers
So I felt like I wanted to write a note to anyone that follows me on HubPages. In the last while I have lost a few followers and I think I know why that is. But first of all if you are following me then I would just like to say thank you very much. I very much appreciate the fact that you have chosen to follow me and I would think that there are a large proportion of you that I also follow back - particularly those that comment on my hubs.
I know that part of the community of HubPages is about following people, learning from them and finding out new things, which I definitely do with the people I follow. Added to that there is the entertainment factor of some hubbers that always cheers me up if I have a bit of a gloomy day!
But the main reason I wanted to write this hub is just to explain the way things have been going in the last few weeks. When I started writing for HubPages I wrote the majority of my articles about my favourite subjects which are painting and golf! I also wrote quite a few things about the place I live part of the time (Dubai). I know some of my early followers were also artists or those interested in painting and that is probably why they followed me. Recently I have not written so many art hubs and that may be why some of those followers have left. Rest assured that I will write more of those when I have more valuable tips to share. I have actually been told by some people that I shouldn't give away so many artistic secrets that have taken me years to learn but I think it is all a bit of give and take.
My Current Hubs
So you may have noticed that many of my current hubs are product based hubs. In the last couple of months I had some success with a few of these which kicked off some Amazon sales. As things are tough financially for a lot of people right now, including me, I wanted to explore that avenue further to see if I could earn more Amazon income. As I said in my profile I wanted to earn $100 a month, which I did, but now I need to see if I can get that up to about $500 a month so that I can actually take care of a lot of my bills without having to worry.
Being an artist is a tough profession to do full time and constantly be wondering where the next job is coming from so to get some residual income through HubPages is a relief for me.
So that is why I will keep writing product hubs for the time being. Maybe some people will get bored with all this commercialism but, without sounding rude, and not wanting to offend any of you, these hubs are written with Google in mind and not the HubPages Community.
I will continue also to write articles that I think will be interesting to the HubPages community and my followers, but in the meantime I apologise if this is not what you want to see and you are tempted to unfollow me - that is your right and feel free, but I hope that you don't.
Hubs to Come
So like a lot of people, I go through phases of having things to write about and drawing a blank. At the moment I am in a phase of writing and I have a bunch of ideas that I want to write about - a lot of these will be product hubs for Christmas as I have never really tried to cash in on that market before, having only really written seriously for HubPages since January this year.
So, if you are following because you are interested in art, golf, Dubai or perhaps just to watch someone as they try and make some money, then I am very glad to have you :-)
