Before writing a Hub, do you search for a similar article and base your decision off it?


If you're like me, before writing an article, you research it and see what similar material is out there. Often, the quality of what I discover influences my decision whether to make the Hub; if I know can provide a better read, I'll go for it. Anyone else use a similar method?

    Many Hubbers do! And I agree that writers should talk about what they want to, but if I have multiple ideas in mind, I may pursue the less-discussed one.

    I can understand; there are many times where I'm so eager to write on a subject, I disregard what is or isn't out there about it.

    That's an excellent point. I often rotate between articles I especially want to craft, and those on trendy subjects I expect to get the most views.

    Welcome to HubPages, Lindsay. I use a similar method if I'm unsure whether or not I want to explore something. When it's a topic I only have moderate interest in, I'm less likely to write on it if others have extensively. I look forward to your work!
