Today I started reorganizing my hubs to improve on my profile page. Now I never was too happy with the category I put many of my hubs.... Because Sports and Recreation has a sub category that is hunting fishing and shooting. This seems to be the only place I can list to get FISHING.
I DO NOT want to be associated with guns in any way shape or form. It looks like I am some kind of Annie Oakley on my profile! LOL LOL!!
I would like to know if anyone has a better idea for me to group these hubs so that FISHING is the main category and I can leave the guns for people who are IN TO KILLING. It ain't me.
I do not know of another category either C.S., but I concur with your desire not to be associated with guns and hunting. I used to feel sad when some hunters were always looking for deers in our local mountains , especially since they are much more rare these days. I guess I am just overly sensitive about the hunting thing. I think fishing is far more humane .
I am upset with this because I feel very strong about guns. They are made for killing. I do not want my Topic Intrests to include the words SHOOTING or HUNTING. There has got to be a way for me to exclude the two and not have to be associated with them.
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS CATEGORY!
I am going to go through all of my hubs and try to get them put together , categorized better and I guess there will be some others I am not satisfied with. The thing is, for me...hunting and shooting is NOT GOING TO WORK.
The examiner has some funny categories too. I feel funny writing about arts and crafts next to all the gamers because it looks like I do not belong there lol.
I actually think that it would be nice if the Hubpage editors separated the categories you are referring to. From an SEO standpoint, a category dedicated to fishing and fishing related subjects would be far superior to having all three categories clumped together.
I would like to ask them real nicely to please consider making all categories more targeted. This would help with pagerank and allow you and others to write to a targeted category. I think this would solve your problem and make your content rank far better.
Personally I feel that fishing and related subject matter should stand alone since it has nothing to do with GUNS, Why not put ice hockey with shooting? it is a sport, or baseball, it is outside. Just is not right.
Thank You Thank You Thank You. I was thrilled to see that my topic of interests no longer include hunting and shooting. Thank the HUB Gods!

I just Googled something and I come up as writing the latest under Hunting and Shooting. I am TOTALLY AGAINST GUNS. Now why can we NOT SEPARATE HUNTING From FISHING? I am very upset with this. I do not like to be linked with guns, killing animals, shooting things. Guns are made to kill...

Hi, I can't help thinking that it would be helpful to have the option for hubs to be linked to more than one category if necessary. For example, I wrote a review on a book about the TV show Mad Men. However, I was torn about which category to allocate this hub too. I ended up...

Each year when the Hubbie Awards roll around, I am always thinking of other categories that may be appropriate for the Hubbie Awards. Can you think of any other categories that you would like to see added in the Awards selection? I am always amazed how some hubbers do so well in their...
