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.
Same, I always supplement my knowledge with research, which helps provide engaging reads. Thanks for your insight!
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!
