I leave for college next weekend. I will still have internet access, but I don't think I'll have much time to write or participate here, so I've set a goal: to write 4 featured hubs in the next 5 days to bring me up to 50 hubs, get my 100th follower (I only have 1 left), and then write 1 hub a month and leave comments here and there.
What I'm worried about is that I'll lose followers (not technically) and lose time through my inactivity as I did last semester. Do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can do during college to keep the ball rolling here?
Study by writing about what you are learning. One of the members here even writes about how to solve math equations. You could write about a historical event that you need to remember the details about.
Good luck in college and don't forget to have a fun time.
As WriterJanis suggested, perhaps you can set a goal to write one hub on a weekend. If you have other things you want to do with your free time on the weekend and don't want to spend a few hours working on a hub, you could write a little bit in a notebook whenever you have time and then just type it in on Saturday or Sunday morning.
Perhaps set aside some time on the weekends? By the way, good luck with college.
Keep trying to improve your Hubs so that you will gain more traffic and better scores.
Best of luck in your studies. I like the notebook idea. That way he doesn't have to devote hours on a weekend to making a hub. You are very wise to start something like writing for Hub Pages when you are young.
Congrats on heading back to college, and on your 100th follower (I read that post!). Your time at school will be a good chance to let your hubs get more Google juice - that takes time. And writing one a month is a really good and realistic goal.
During those times when you check in at HP, take a few minutes to read & comment on the HOTD, and check out any hubs that appear on your feed. That's a good way to keep a presence here, and to meet more writers (and maybe reach 150 followers!).
Good luck this semester - we will be thinking of you!
College will give you lots of material for new hubs - both academically and socially.
I don't really have anything to add, but I did want to wish you all the best at college.

So many of you jumped in with good advice to help me after my hubs crashed and burned last week that I was overwhelmed. I love this community! I know, too, that many of you have been reading my work to help me "up" my numbers, and I also thank you for that. So far I have...

Should the non featured hubs be unpublished?One of my favorite hub, published 10 months ago, which has received lot of appreciation, comments and views is notified by HP as non featured, due to not satisfying quality standards. My making changes and improvements did not help either. It is still...

How to find an idea to write a hub?
by Radhika Sreekanth 10 years ago
After the short break, I'm back here again trying a challenge planning to start from March 1st. I already have some hubs based on 'computer programming' with me as it is my forte. Rest all I plan to write during this challenge on some of my interesting topics. Is there anyone else to join me?

I've decided to do another 30 day challenge writing ONLY sales hubs. Yes I've read some by top hubbers such as Nelle and seen how many there are about topics such as parties, kids and decorations.For those hubbers who spend lots of time on sales hubs... any tips before I go in head first?
