When thinking of an article subject, do you ever (First) search HubPages to see if it has been done?


Or do you just plunge in with your personal brilliant idea? If there re already hubs on the same subject, does it change your mind about writing it? If you do peek at others, does it change your focus?

    It's great to write for writing's sake and for practice - I agree with most of what you say here.

    That sound sensible. I don't think to check other hubs until I see the "related" list. I think if I looked before starting, I might be discouraged. I once had a writer friend of mine say "you think of the oddest things", so maybe that is good .

    No, but once it is published I sometimes read the hubs listed as "related".As far as copying titles, maybe you can but I would try not to. urls, however, must be unique.
