Hi, I signed up today but I don't really know what to do now. Do I write something then try to submit it or what? Do I have to pick a topic now or can I just have a variate till I know for sure what I want to talk about? Any advice would be nice.
Welcome to Hubpages, Elizabeth.
Before deciding on what to write about and how, I'd suggest you
check out the learning centre. Here's a link:
You'll find plenty of ideas and advice there.
Welcome to HubPages.
Take a look at this link - Beginners Start Here. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents
Hope it is helpful.
Hello Elisabeth. I am glad. You are here in hub pages. You need to start with your biography. Then , you need to write a hub. Before, you need to read hub pages learning center. Good luck.
Good advice from everybody, but if I was new, I would
decide on a topic I want to write about
do a google search on it to see how many others are writing about it and who they are
decide if what I have to say offers something original and/or different and
if so, write an article of 750 to 1000 words in a word processing program, check it for grammar and spelling, etc., create a title that either answers a question or provides information that people may want or need and then go to "start a hub" and follow the prompts.
Use the learning center for info about using capsules, headings, photos, ads and the like.
Then publish and see what happens!
I think this particular segment of the Learning Center is helpful, the video in it is a good starting point for understanding what to do: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool
The gist is, write about what you know. Don't just write one long block of text; use more than one text capsule and put image capsules in-between them. Find a relevant video and add it too. Also use the guide in the upper right of the Hub Tool as a way of understanding what to include in your Hub.
When or if you are accustomed to Internet writing, you might want to look into ways to fashion titles for articles that will attract traffic. I always suggest people check out Wrylilt's Hub on using Google Auto-Suggest for getting traffic. But if you Google SEO and Keyword Research, you'll find plenty of info on the subject, as well as searching Hubpages for Hubs on the subject.
In a more basic way, you click on Start a Hub, do your writing and capsule arrangement, etc, then when finished hit Publish. The Hub will go through the quality assessment process, and then you'll find out if it passed and is published. In My Account, on the Statistics page, you will see which Hubs are published or going through the assessment process or is not featured, etc. That page is fairly self explanatory, gives you definitions of the symbols that indicate status of Hubs, etc.
