HUBS HUBBA HUBBA - For Brand New Hubbers

Updated on June 6, 2010

WRITE and Forget About Everything else!

I just joined Hubpages and by no means do I get this yet except for the fact that I have loads to write about. I did join Google Adsense and I have not made any cash yet but I only joined a few weeks ago, so no biggie. CAN YOU SEE THE GOOGLE ADS AT THE RIGHT OF THIS PARAGRAPH? GOOD.

I decided to write this hub in order to encourage other "new hubbers" to not give up and just write. DO THIS FIRST BEFORE YOU THINK OF THE REST OF IT. Like bringing traffic to your hub, making money on your pages or getting new fans. If you are like me and you possibly get "overwhelmed," this may cause you to STOP WRITING and doing this for good because it seems like such a hassle. I just read some good articles from fellow "hubbers" telling people how to increase their ads on their page by making different capsules so that the ads can appear inbetween your stories. By the time I tried to figure this little simple thing out, I ALMOST LOGGED OFF AND LEFT MY HUB UNFINISHED because I was "burned out."

So, if you are a new writer who wants to try to express yourself in this type of forum on the web JUST WRITE! I joined a couple of weeks ago and whenever I tried to figure other stuff out to improve my cash flow, fans or page hits I just had a "meltdown." Infact I'm not even sure I signed up for Adsense with Google correctly! Last time I checked I didn't make a thing, but if I thought this would make a huge difference to my bank account, I would try a bit harder. We all know that this sort of thing takes time and you need to market yourself and bring more people to your hubs in order to see some real cash. They also need to purchase stuff too. What is the result of this sort of "overwhelming" panic from not knowing what to do? I STOP WRITING!!!!

Now, from another source on hub pages I'm supposed to leave space here for Google ads, but yo and behold I CAN'T FIGURE THIS OUT. WAIT......let's just try this.......BUY THE BOOK "HEARTBURN" BY NORA EPHRON." Damn, I do not think I will make anything off this because I did it WRONG! So what! I WILL JUST KEEP WRITING!!!!!

This hub is about someone who LOVES to write, but gets thrown off if things feel too complicated and confusing. Can you relate?!!!! Some peoples brains just can take so much in so little time. Capiche? 

I'm hoping that this hub will encourage someone like me who may have kids yelling in the background, another career and not enough time to figure this all out and may give up because of it because they may be too tired or older then the technical savvy and they are on their way to a "meltdown!"

PLACE AD HERE NOW ;

JUST WRITE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN FOR NOW and enjoy yourself because more CONTENTwill always bring more interest and things should progress naturally if you love what you are doing. The point is that WRITE AS MANY HUBS AS YOU CAN. I've written about 10 and now I have a few fans but I will continue to write more HUBS.

"Voila" and I'm not even attempting to find out about the marketing stuff for now. Once I get even more hubs up there, I will then take the time to figure all of the rest out. I read one woman's hub and I liked it and then I noticed that she had a link to her BLOG that she has had for years. By the time I tried to look into this I left my HUB that I was writing and tried to figure out how to create a BLOG website on the web so that I could link it to my hub profile. The result of all of this........MORE TIME AWAY FROM WRITING!

So, just keep writing new Hubs my dear and let the rest follow. Afterall the more you write about, the more to pick from when others check out your stuff. Then everything else can follow in a while when you have more time.

OH BY THE WAY. I LEFT A PHOTO OUT OF THIS HUB AT THE TOP ON THE RIGHT SO THAT ADS CAN GO RIGHT NEXT TO THE TOP OF MY ARTICLE. WANT TO BUY SOMETHING SO THAT I CAN SEE IF MY GOOGLE ADSENSE ACCOUNT WORKS?

I haven't even figured out the Amazon stuff yet. 

GOODLUCK!

      Ah...it is true of course.

      It is good that "weak" hubs can be edited and corrected.

      I'm absolutely sure that better idea is writing to much than thinking to much ;-)

      Hey Froch! This was written for people that THINK TOO MUCH and then sabotage their writing efforts!!!!! This is supposed to just GET PEOPLE STARTED......without worrying about the quality of the hub....SOME people here have started writing for the first time.....YES, what you say is true, but the point here is to GET people to write!!! Down the line they can then decide what type of hub they want to write, how much time to invest in each story and what they actually WANT to write about.....Best, GPAGE

      Writing many hubs are good Idea in my opinion, but there is one important thing to focus - quality of it. If somebody is writing hubs for cash he cannot write 193048342857 poor hubs. 30-60 well-prepared are better solutions.

      Ok, but I will no talking about it, because I'm newbie. May it is time to speech of experienced-guys?

      FranYo! So glad this hub inspired you to write here again! I think that sometimes we think way too much.....we just need to "go with the flow!!!" Best, GPAGE

      Okay GPage, I'll follow your advise and just jump back into HubPages. I say "back into" 'cause over a year ago I felt that same sense of meltdown you describe. I did write a hub, received some comments, and then felt I certainly should know how to earn money, get more recognition, follow more fellow hubbers, and on and on....so I stopped even looking at HubPages.

      But now? I'm going to jump back in and write like there's no tomorrow, so thanks, thanks for the inspiration!

      The love of writing is the most important ingredient. You have to love what you're doing and the money comes later.
