Is it better to stick to a certain "genre"?


I'm new and I don't like to just write hubs on certain "genre's". I'm wondering if that is ok, or if I will suffer in the long run because of it. I know people will only "follow" you if they continuously like what your writing about, so I'm kinda nervous. I really like writing about health topics as well as light hearted topics that can help people. In the future I might even add another genre to write about as well. I guess I'm just curious how/if it has affected other "hubbers" in the past or present.

    Thanks =) I appreciate your response, it helped further emphasize to enjoy writing and to write about what I know and enjoy. I have to read the hub on pet rocks you've peaked my interest lol! Also, if you have a hub on bulldogs I'm def reading that!

    Thanks =) That definitely sounds interesting, I'll have to pop in & take a look one of these days. "Write what you know" is something I've been telling myself, especially right after I write a hub & start to get nervous about it haha. Thanks

    Thanks =) Yea, it really helps to see it all laid out like that. Pro/Con lists always seem to help, so I really appreciate it . I guess all that's left to do is deciding which would be better for me. Thanks =)

    Thanks =) I never thought about it as far as google terms, that's definitely an interesting point. I'm thinking maybe I'll settle on 3 genres & just leave it at that. Hopefully that will be enough to fulfill my passion&keep any followers. Th
