    Hello everyone. I love to write, but I always tend to get writers block... It seems that all I can write about is my own advice and I'm not sure if writing a hub is right for me?

      Yes, plenty of hubbers here have advice-oriented articles. I say go for it.

      The secret to successful online writing is to write what you know. The new wave is conversational writing which Google loves and is promoting with their newest algorithms.

      So long as you don't make the hub too personal and it answers the readers questions you are good to go. Make sure your titles are question based such as "How to tie a shoe lace?" Think about the questions readers would search for and answer those questions with your own experience.

      Good Luck!

      Often part of writers block or any block is the fear of making a mistake. Don't worry about mistakes. Just write. Eventually you will pick up confidence and skills to write more and faster.  We all started from a very similar place.  Good luck !

    Advice is always a good thing to write about; whether it be good or bad advice.  I have thought about writing a Hub on all the bad advice I have received over the years.  I think it would be fun, and informative.  I know we all get bad advice from people who mean well.

    Since you haven't posted any Hubs yet, it's difficult to give you the best personal advice right now.  I would suggest that you take a few writing classes at a community college in your area to help you get started in the right direction.  If writing is something you really want to do, then learn something about the craft. Good luck!

    I would say if you are most comfortable writing to give advice, make a list of a few topics that you are knowledgeable about.  What things can you offer advice on?  Then start writing about these topics.  A good way to overcome writer's block is... to write.  Writing something often gives you ideas for other things to write.  Pick one topic and write a couple pages of your best advice on that topic.  I look forward to reading your 1st Hub!

    News papers hire advice columnists all the time, if it can sell papers and magazines for them than it should sell hubs for you. Just make sure that your advice is as accurate as possible and don't get too personal. Happy hubbing

    Hello , the question is what do you want to gain when writing a hub is it out of pleasure to educate or just a past time venture, everyone has a reason either viable or otherwise, if it is finance then be ready to write tons of hubs, personal experience is a great place to start but not to personal because the Web is an open directory for anyone,. So discover the reason feel the passion and decide.

    I do it for pleasure there's no other measure. Too much comes to hold on to, so I just let it flow thru hubs to you... There's not enough money to make off hubbing so I'm just here to publish free pubbing.

    I encourage you to write whatever flows from your heart and mind. The best writing comes from within and is composed of topics you have feeling about. It is not only helpful to the writer, but often can be helpful to many readers.  Do not worry about times when you do not feel compelled to write. Just go for it and write when the mood strikes you.
