I can see from my stats on different hubs and from browsing on the site what readers like to read. the most popular hubbers are those who write content for the readers, naturally enough I am going to have to start doing it more but it is uncomfortable to change my formal writing style to suit these topics. I see that "How to..." articles and topics on household topics do well.Will I be able to learn to write this stuff along with my own stuff or will I just stick to my own writing style?Looking forward to hearing how others deal with this.Thanks :-)
As a new hubber, this is an excellent question for me to explore. I just joined this week and have two hubs on what I know and like. After taking a surf through topics, successful hubs, and my stats, I realize that I will have to offer more of what most people want to hear/read. I need more content and photos, too. I think this can be a lot of fun if I step outside of my box and put a unique spin on what I like and know by offering more specifics that others can relate to and use in there own lives. We will see . . .
This is what I like about hubpages-being able to step out of your box as you say.It is a challenge to learn different ways of writing and there are so many people to learn from here.
Welcome to Hubpages janshares! I write what I like as well as what others might like to read. It´s always a challenge for me too, to learn different kinds of writing.
I'd say both - but HubPages is such a large and diverse community that you are likely to find your niche with a little time and practice. Good Luck!
Writing in saturated topics like weight loss will lower your chances of getting views. You need to find a good niche.
I write mostly about what I know. and your personality will come through your writing. I just write like a person is sitting right in front of me and inject some of my own 'experiences' into it. We are all different and going to attract a different 'audience' therefore no real 'format' to follow but the point is, to make it interesting, compelling, something worth sharing.
Actually Both! I prefer to write about things I know or that interests me. Like Dame Scribe I also use my own experience or those of others to make the point to viewers.
If it's something that few people will like, I don't publish it on a site like this: I write it for myself.
If it's something that I don't like, I'm not going to write about it.
I am a dog with only a few tricks, but this is what I figured out years ago: what to write on to get traffic:
+1 - you've hit the nail on the head.
Now, off to write on how to use a hammer...
There's no reason for the two to be mutually exclusive.
Another way to do both is to combine topics. Let's say you like traveling and many of your followers like parenting topics. Why not write a hub about the way different cultures parent their children? Or write one about how to raise children to appreciate other countries? Or ways that children can actually travel to other countries? Or write about what children from other countries who are visiting your own think about your culture?
I like writing about water. Meanwhile, I've noticed there's a pretty strong music community here, which I also like. So I'm writing a hub right now about water themes in different styles of music. I could also write one about which instruments sound the most like water when you play them, or about instruments that could be played underwater and what that might sound like. Get the picture? You could get some good SEO responses by combining topics like that too - pulling in readers from both groups.
Obviously write what I must - is that the same as "I want?"
I write some really strange, odd & weird stuff. I have a hard time writing on recipes & "top-ten". On the flip side if it took me a long time to learn something on the computer then I write notes as I do it and write "How-to's"
Yup, I just dream this stuff up:
