I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??
Mary, we can only provide links on the social sites or we get flagged for duplicate content.
I start everything I write in Word, whether it's for HP, my blog, or paying clients. That way I always have a copy.
I have a mystery concerning Word. I have always written in Word, then copy/paste to go into a text capsule on HP. I just realized my posts have disappeared from Word documents! I don't know what I am doing to cause that. Any ideas??
Are you copy/pasting or cut/pasting?
Save your docs in Word, then copy a few paragraphs at a time into the text capsules. I've never lost a Word doc when copy/pasting.
I save the doc in Word and copy. Surely I'm not cutting as I go!! I don't think so.
I don't get it, then Mary. You can always copy/paste your hubs back into Word and save them. Just be careful moving forward that you're copying and not cutting.
After I publish a hub, I share it on Twitter, G+ and Pinterest. My FB is private though, but I do have a FB writer's page is all. I never share my own hubs on HubPages though. However I have seen many who do share their own hubs here.
Not sure I have answered your question, being you are talking about saving your documents there. I write mine in Word and then copy and paste them into hubs, so I always have a copy of what I write here.
i always copy and paste each of my hub url in excel. Google+ and pinterest are great ways to share hubs but hard to track down all of them
There wasa hubpages group on Google + but I have better luck with Pinterest. If I search Google for my hubs all I find are pinterest links not hubpages.
Did you mean keep a copy in your Google drive? google plus is a social media sharing thing, but you can keep backups of your documents in your Google drive and keep it private, I do this to back up many things.
You can share a blurb and link on Google plus to share your hubs with others, but to archive whole copies of your hub - put a copy onto Google drive in a backup folder.
ChristinS I do not have a clue as to what the Google drive is?? I had always assumed my docs were being saved in Word. I just discovered there are not. How do I find the Google drive??
I just found Google drive. Looks like a good place to write instead of Word (maybe). I'll play around with that. Thanks.
I like Google Drive. They've got spell checker, word counter, and all sorts of other neat stuff. I use them all the time.
I'm like you Mary I just found Google Drive, did not have a clue. It seems to work good, also what I put in Word is still there.
I've just started on this time but my opinion is,its better to post our hubs on Goggle+ It would be spreading to all of the people so they can see our hubs
Sorry I'm just now getting back to this . Google drive is a great place to store your work so that in the event of a major malfunction, you don't lose everything. I'm a bit over the top probably, but I save all my work to an external hard drive, on my google drive and on my regular drive - so I have 3 copies of everything.
One major catastrophe when I wasn't backing things up regularly set me on this path.
As for hubs I write in OpenOffice and copy and paste into hub capsules. I save the documents to Google Drive. I also have a list of all my titles/urls
The more places you share things the more likely you are to be able to recover them. I usually keep a list of the titles of what I write and the dates but unless they are long tailed titles and show up in the first few pages when Googled, they are hard to find. I should rather write down the URL's after publishing.
Because of deleting most of what I had written on that other site recently, I was able to locate most of the articles using various methods. Some were on Google+ and others pinned. Could probably have found others on twitter but that would have taken more time.
I should really save my articles but always thought that would take up too much space on the computer. Will have to rethink that!
I think I will get into the habit of copying the URL of my Hubs. I just wrote a new Hub on Google Drive and saved it. I was able to copy/ paste very well from there. It is so important to be able to find our Hubs in case we have to file a DMCA complaint. I learned that the hard way.

I notice some of you store your files on a flash drive. Is it really as easy as it sounds?

Do you guys back up your hubs?Hey guys, do you guys back up your hubs locally? I'm kinda wondering if I should. Granted, I only have made a few, but I guess it's never too soon? Also, if you do back up your hubs, how do you do it?

So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as duplicate, so someone must have copied and pasted my new hub. Everything on...

Do you write straight into your hub or do you copy and paste from your wordprocessing program?Sometimes my ideas go straight into my hub particularly some of my poems. Other times I use word to play about with the text before I copy and paste into my hub. Just wondered if you use your...

Do you write your hub in word processor first or directly in the hub?
