    I am just seeking a little advice. I would like to add value to the online community with my hubs and also earn some extra income. What are some things I can do to be successful with hubbing?

    I would say that the best thing to do is to write hubs that you are passionate about and also hubs that you feel that readers will be attracted to. For instance, around a holiday or special day such as Valentine's day, you can write hubs that have to do with love or relationships mainly because thats what people will be looking for. Also, interact with your followers and the people you are following. Read their hubs and discuss your opinion about their hubs also, it wouldn't hurt even to leave behind some fan mail every now and then.

      Great point about the importance of passion, torrilynn!

    The thing to do is not to think of HP as just a site where you can write and earn money from it (although you certainly *can* do that.)

    The real value of HP is in having a vibrant community that you can engage and interact with, ask questions of and get feedback on your creations.

    Torrilynn has already provided some great suggestions, but in brief:

    - Find an interesting topic that you know about
    - Write clear, engaging content
    - Have a unique and distinctive approach
    - Provide something of value to your reader
    - Listen to feedback
    - Promote your content wisely

    If you're interested in the more social side of HP, i.e. the community, I've written a hub on how you can interact there effectively and what the benefits are; you can find it linked from my profile.

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to HubPages, collinmorrison. big_smile

    To add to what has already been said, I recommend stopping by these Learning Center guides:
    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/How- … ndly-Title
    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub
    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Usin … d-Google-1

    They can definitely set you off in the right direction on our site- though by asking for advice when you are not sure where to start shows you already have the right approach down!

    You've asked two questions here, one about engaging the community and the other about income. The replies so far deal mostly with writing for income. I once wrote a hub in answer to a similar question to yours about the community aspects of HubPages: Factors Contributing to the Hubbing Community.

    Welcome first of all, and I must say I'm a newbie myself and asked this same question. I was advised to to go the hubpage learning center. You will find a lot of useful information there as I Did. Good luck!

    Same with you, Im a newbie also. Welcome to hubpages sir! I must say experienced is the best policy when It comes to writing. Write more hubs until you get the flow and find your best technique. Write until it become perfect, update your hub and research sometimes.
