HubPages: One Year Anniversary
I am just about to complete my first year here at HubPages. I have enjoyed creating hubs and learning how to navigate this content site. I have learned a great deal about writing, topics and even SEO. I want to share what I have loved about writing on this site, my results and what my writing future holds here at HubPages and elsewhere.
The HubPage Community
There are so many positive things to say about this wonderful community. I have made some very special cyber friends, who have encouraged and supported me through challenging times. Two other hubbers even wrote hubs about me. I feel almost like a celebrity. I could never leave Hubpages totally as I would miss this wonderful community of writers.
I have learned a lot by reading other hubs, and explored new topics. I am thoroughly in awe how writers have taken difficult topics and created interesting articles. I am not going to mention names here of all the wonderful people I love, as there are so many writers and I don't want to leave any out.
My Current Results at HubPages
To date I have written 157 hubs.
I have 41,000 views
I earn about $14.00 a month
My writer score goes from 93-97
My highest views on one hub is 2800.
I have only 3 hubs over 1000 views.
Most of the hubs hover around 200 to 600 views
I mostly get about 150 views a day and sometimes a little more
Since tweaking all my hubs there has been no increase in views
My Writing Niches at HubPages
Astrology is my main writing niche and the second one is recipes.
I have written several hubs on retirement, family issues, health issues, cleaning solutions and hubpage community issues.
What I have done to Improve Views
I have tweaked my hubs on an ongoing basis. Last month I went over every hub and improved photos, content, grammar, spelling and seo.
I read other hubs for ideas and quality.
I have created a niche with over 25 hubs on Astrology.
I have promoted my hubs on social networks.
Results and Plans
I have been working to improve my hubs, and the views have gone down by 10 percent. True, I have slowed down in producing more hubs, but I had hoped the older hub views would increase in numbers.
I average between 150 and 200 views a day, which is a poor response for the number of hubs I have written. Needless to say I am discouraged. The disappointment of the lack of views has been the strongest influence in my current feelings.
As I said I am not quitting here as I will continue to comment on my good friend's hubs, I would never give up my friendships here as they are very special. I will start writing here again whenI get renewed inspiration. It is inspiring to write here to share ideas and develop a portfolio of articles, and when you see people are continuing to search the titles you have chosen.
Here are a few of my projects:
I am working on a book.
I am working on my astrology designs to put on t-shirts.
I am going to set up a website soon.
I am thinking seriously of doing some videos for Utube.
I write for three other sites
I love you all and I am still here, and tomorrow I could change my mind and start writing up a storm---------I am kind of like that.
