I tried searching for the answer, but couldn't find anything similar.
Most of the hubs I saw from other hubbers are articles, that have no or little time connotation. But, would it be OK to write something that is hype at the moment, like news, a breaking story etc.?
On the sign-in page it states that you may write a hub about anything. It's true that "evergreen content" tends to do better than time-sensitive topics, but hubbers still cover these things, like Barack Obama, etc. They can definitely be popular too.
Will it be you expressing an opinion on current affairs? Trying to report news? Or posting news articles?
I thought more like expressing opinions or writing about something that has become very popular. For example, some band releases a new album - that's news. Me writing about that band and mentioning the new album release - that's not news, or?
I have no intention to do news reporting, as I do not have such resources or abilities.
You can write a hub about a current news item, like various hubs about Obama, or about a current event, like Agvulpes has written this one (http://hubpages.com/hub/Today-We-had-a-visit-from-Hell). It is a bit like a newspaper, you may read it from end to end when it is fresh, but you rarely come back to read it after a few days, or even the next day.
On the other hand, you can write a hub about an evergreen topic, like "how to lose weight quickly" or "how to write a resume". These hubs will remain relevant for almost forever. Again, this is like a reference book, you keep coming back to refer to it.
Plainly speaking, write about anything that you are interested in and are comfortable with.

Hey there Hubbers - a happy Thursday to ya'. Once I get caught up with the 1,000,000 things that I need to shove into my brain this week, I was going to put together my next Hub(big #2!). So, I was wondering if any of you are getting ready to write up a new Hub and if you are, what are you going to...

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?

All I see on my news feed is articles written about the earthquake and I personally find that kind of annoying. I don't mean to call anyone out but it seems like what most people do is just read an actual news article about the event (in this case the earthquake) and then write it in their own...

Can you write a hub about what is takes to get 100K views from only 56 hubs? That's amazing!

We live in a time when anyone can post anything online and claim it is true. Some people believe such posts if they fit their preferred view of the world.I have seen many, many postings in Answers and Forums as well as Hubs that are filled with gross inaccuracies, especially about politics. Posters...
