    Hi, I am new here and I don't have any ideas for writing a hub. Is anyone who can give me tips and suggestions?

      Choose a general interest you have and go to Google search. As you type the word, Google will auto complete for you. Look down the list and you might find something to write about. You can also use the Google Adwords Keyword Planner to get ideas to write about. When you use these tools, you will get ideas to write about that are being searched for by people on the internet. The most important thing is to write about something that you are knowledgeable and passionate about.

      If you don't know what to write, what made you want to join the site?

        I think her issue is not what to write but how to do it...

      Your question is not very clear.... Can you clarify exactly what you are asking... If you want ideas/suggestions on what to write about you can write about anything that you are interested in.

      Hi joween18,
      Writing hubs is pretty simple once you find your comfort zone. Most often, from what I have seen, people write about what they know in a way that is organized and produced to help others. My first hub is actually the first in a series about my process of character development. Pick a few things that you love to do and feel you're good at and then work on figuring out how to help others see what you see. Take a look at some articles in your areas of interest and find some you like as examples. If you are serious about your writing, you will outline and draft your articles until you feel comfortable simply writing them. Hope this helps.

    f your struggling for ideas there are many ways to find something to write about.
    Watch the news, previous camping experiences, surviving highschool etc.. think of something that you needed to know in a time of desperate need and managed to workout for yourself. Then write about your solution - you would be surprised how many people share the same feelings for various things and would appreciate the help.

    As my hubs are all based around my fields of experience, I suppose you could say that when writing a hub about those experiences/expertise subjects, quite literally, tonnes of information comes flooding out and I have to order it on paper as a means to appropriate that particular points authority.

    If you really

    Apologies I sent that a bit hastily lol.

    As said if you really are struggling for ideas take a walk down your street and write about the local attractions or events.

    I've found that my best hubs are from my own personal experiences and opinions on things I'm interested in, so go for it!

    I recommend using the article template for step #1. Use many different "text" Content Capsules to break your article up into individual parts. For example, if you wrote an article on How to Have a Stress Free Christmas, it could be broken up like this: Planning Ahead for the Holidays, Creating Your Own Traditions, Clutter-free Gifts, Simple Holiday Meals, and so on.  Doing this will also make your Hub more simple to write.

    Of course. Try starting out with some recipes, or step by step instructions on how to do something you already know. You could interview a local musician or band, or maybe someone in an interesting career in your community. Ideas should start flowing after you begin writing what you know,

      Basically a Hub has to have enough content, be well-organized and answer a question sufficiently. It is helpful to use the tools in the edit tool: The tips in the upper right-hand corner and the template. The tips at the top (when you're in the edit tool, writing a Hub) will tell you what your Hub needs; images, video, how much text. The template set up when you first start writing will give the Hub a good look and set-up if you follow it. I don't always necessarily use everything in the template, but I often do. I usually use most of it.

    Try this. I found this very effective to get every hub featured.

    A visit to the Learning Center before you start might save you time in the long run.

    Try not to write on topics that have lots of competition for the search terms... unless you can offer something on it no one else can. If you already know a lot about something writing about it is quicker than having to research the topic.

    HubPage readers who are members can help with comments, but mostly you do need the search traffic. You probably know that anyway. 

    There are hubs here on writing hubs, but things do change so some of the suggestions on the old ones might be out of date.

    Try to follow the basics; incorporate as many capsules as possible from the hubtool as they fit your topic. Develop a format that best presents your article while satisfying the expectations of HP. Shoot for a high QAP score (shoot for the stars) and you will at least get a score to get featured. Most importantly, make sure grammar and spelling are correct.
