My Reasons for Joining the HubPages Community

Updated on May 31, 2019
Gurpinder Vir Singh Rai profile image

I love writing and it is a huge passion of mine.I wish to use HubPages to improve my written content and express myself.

My Passion for Writing

Writing articles and essays is something I have enjoyed ever since I was in school. It allows me to express myself and explore my creativity. Most of the time, admittedly it is something I have not been able to dedicate a lot of time to.

Over the coming months this is something that I am looking to change. I have set myself goals to follow my dreams and my passion. As part of this I have made the decision to join HubPages in order to explore where this new adventure takes me. Although I have written articles and other content in the past, I am looking to improve my skills and see how I develop.

English was one of my favorite subjects at school as it allowed me to explore my creativity in both writing fictional content as well as non fictional content. Most of my study in the field of English was based on poetry as well plays by Shakespeare. It is this literary work which has been a huge inspiration and has led me to fall in love with the English language. I also discovered whilst studying my love for novels. My favorite novel is "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.

Why I Decided to Join HubPages?

My main motivation behind joining HubPages is to improve my written English and explore my creativity. English is my native language but that does not necessarily make me an expert. Through writing I want to enjoy being able to connect with other writers on this community as well as the rest of my readers in general. As part of this process, I would appreciate any feedback on my articles. This is something that will help me to connect with my readership.

Another motivation behind joining HubPages for me is the ability to eventually use my passion and hobby for writing into earning a passive income. The many techniques which are commonly used along the community from my research include things like advertising and affiliate marketing. These are areas in which I still have to explore the full potential. However, this is just an added bonus to my overall ambitions in using this great platform.

Key Goals for my Time on HubPages

  • Improve my written style and be able to publish better content.
  • Engage Widely with the HubPages Community in order to interact with other writers and get written feedback on the way my publishing is going. This will enable me to make any improvements and be aware of what is working well.
  • Potentially use this as an opportunity to earn passive income through advertising revenue sharing and affiliate marketing.
  • Explore other writer's content and see what works well with their written style
  • Find interesting articles to read on the areas of my passions and hobbies.


From a personal point of view I feel that it is important to set goals to measure progress. In my opinion, only by seeing visible progress can an individual feel happy and contented on how far they have come on any adventure in life. By setting goals it makes it tangible to some extent to measure progress. By looking back at these goals in the future this will enable me to see how far I have come on this adventure. This hopefully will potentially also help others identify goals which they may look to pursue themselves.

Feedback

Please feel free to provide any relevant feedback on how I can improve the structure of my articles. This includes both the actual written content style itself as well as laying things out. As I am new to HubPages this is something I am keen to learn about. I want to be able to use all the features available on HubPages to format and structure the best articles possible.

I appreciate all feedback as always and will take it onboard to the best of my ability.

Future on HubPages

I would like to take this opportunity to write my views about my decision to join HubPages. I am really excited to join this incredible platform. I look forward to writing great content over the coming weeks and gaining an deeper insight in how this platform works. This will enable me to make the most of this platform to get the best articles out there based on my written content.

      Welcome to Hubpages. I think goal-setting is an important part of being here. One suggestion: add some actual numbers to the goals you set because then they become easier to track.

      I noticed that the other articles you have written were on meditation. It is one area where show and tell works very well. At this point I am recommending a short lead in, a short video showing the technique you are explaining, then the rest of the content. Make sure the video has corresponding keywords.

      The video's don't have to be professional quality, people today prefer real. Done right even in not professional quality it will make it possible to have a second source of income and possibly if you contact me a third.
