Can a novice make it as a writer on Hubpages? I say YES!
This hub is dedicated to all the beginners on Hubpages and those who would like to join Hubpages but they are wondering whether they can really make it as online writers here. I have met several friends who say they would like to join Hubpages but they just shy away and conclude they can’t make good online writers.
When I joined Hubpages, about two months ago (on 04/28/2012), I had no prior knowledge in online writing and although I’m far from making it as a good online writer, certainly I can’t say that I have not accomplished a milestone.
If you are a beginner like I am, (Well, not very green now), I will let you know that there are two great aspects of Hubpages that can get you off very quickly; the user friendliness of Hubpages interface itself and the wonderful Hubpages community.
I was amazed how friendly the Hubpages interface is when I decided to write my first hub. The crafting of capsules didn’t seem that complicated and I could drop capsules, edit them and work my way around.
The Hubpages community is another aspect of Hubpages that I find very helpful especially to beginners. As a beginner, you might get frustrated due to your hubs being flagged down or missing your way around and so you decide to post questions. But unlike other online communities where you might end up not being helped, here you will get responses or polite comments of how to go around when you get stuck.
I found it does not matter who you ask so long as you do it in the right way. With time, you gain your own close friends who you actively interact with. I found relache being very helpful in my case, always ready to answer my questions and showing me the way, thanks relache.
The entire Hubpages community is wonderful, you feel you belong into a family that is tied together by the bond of writing and beyond. I cannot forget the support I’m getting from hubbers like ChristyWrites, tammyswallow, teaches12345, Angela Brummer, Cloudexplorer and many others. Thank you all and thank you Hubpages community.
As a beginner, start by writing what you like but not overly personal, it can be a recipe, a poem, a movie review or an experience such as a study experience that can help others. With time you will get used to writing as you learn new ideas and loops about online writing.
Do not be intimidated by online terms such as SEO (Search Engine Optimization), use of Keywords or even worry about the amount of hubs traffic and hubber score. Just concentrate on writing good and appealing articles and soon you will find visitors would like to read more of your articles.
How to become a Writer
Are you convinced to join Hubpages and start writing? If not yet, here are more stats to get you started. I have stayed here for just over two months, today (07/24/2012), I reached 100 followers and one of my hubs, which is less than a month old, has reached over 1000 views with an average of 140 views per day. Several other hubs have over 500 views and the average hubs views per day has risen from a low of less than a 100 views to an average of over 400 views.
I can’t say how I did it and much of the credit goes to my fellow hubbers for their support but what I know is that you can make it. I would say any success here depends on ones determination to do better, patience and constant participation especially interaction with other hubbers. Take the initiative now and start writing, if you have not yet joined Hubpages, join now.
If you are already here but you don’t know where to start, get some introduction here and start writing and if you are already writing but you feel like you want to give up, please don’t. Keep on writing, you never know what will happen tomorrow because even elite hubbers such as habee, jimmythejock and many others started in the same way. Good luck, keep writing and enjoy Hubpages.
