          Actually, based on her avatar, I think she's a fashion magazine editor.  big_smile

          And Danjutsu--I agree with the others.  Don't worry so much about your traffic, and just write.  That'll get them there.

            Drats!  Busted!  Just kidding - had to give up the editorship - took too much time away from hubbing and blogging. (Well, that's better than "Nah, it's CJ Stone in drag" or "AEvans with her hair up".) cool cool cool

    Yeah, that does happen, although I haven't written many hubs but I can see that if you are new you can either write what you feel is good or have traffic smile

    Don't despair, Danjitsu, it takes time.  You'll get there the longer you are in the community and the more hubs you write.  smile

    Some of my earliest hubs are only now starting to get some traffic. I think it helps if you don't really care how much traffic you get. Just write and let it work.

    I think I am getting the idea. As the great Frank Zappa once said " shut your mouth and play your guitar". I shall ignore the way the wind blows and write how I feel. Thanks for giving me a nudge in the right direction.

    I like your writing, but if you want traffic see what a sexy Indian Woman Hub can do haha, they rush to those ones, well someone does.
    I wrote one and people were racing to read it and essentially it was utter crap.

    These days I write about google adsense, that is until they take their ads off my pages, or pay me.  I am a non conformist, and like being totally controversial.
    Keep up writing how you are.
    Cheers

    Yes, just enjoy the place, Dan! Hubpages has many mysteries and what happened to your message in my Wreckless Eric hub is another one that as yet no one has answered! lol
    But if you want definite traffic keep writing the sexy ones!

    I just visited your hub on Power of Suggestion. If I worried about numbers I'd have left a long time ago.  But the friends are great and I'm not going anywhere.  Enjoy first, traffic later.
