Jealousy towards other Hubbers.

  1. Ivan Hernandez profile image93
    Ivan Hernandezposted 11 months ago

    Nearly a week ago, I read Kylyssa's achievements, and it made me want to say mean things to her. She's way higher than me, and has mastered the art of writing. I wish there was a way of dealing with jealousy. Instead of saying mean things about her, I complimented her, but at the same time, put myself down. I need help.

    1. Marketing Merit profile image97
      Marketing Meritposted 11 months agoin reply to this

      You did the right thing Ivan. Kylyssa's success should be viewed in a positive manner and motive you to succeed. However, you should never put yourself down. We are all unique and have our own strengths and abilities. You should focus on these.

      Learn to be inspired by what others have achieved and recognise the work ethic that has gone into their individual success. Jealousy will eat you up. Positivity will make you thrive.

      Best of luck!

          Believe me Ivan, we have all felt like plankton at some point in our lives! Success doesn't happen overnight. What sets people apart is that some are prepared to dedicate their time and effort into becoming sharks.

          Kylyssa was not a shark when she began writing.  She had many obstacles to overcome and she did a lot of hard work.

          Reading your Hubs, I think your mother has encouraged you to think you can do anything, because of your high intelligence.   But intelligence is only one of the attributes you need to be successful.  You also need skill, and that does not come magically out of thin air.  You have to study and practice and it can take a long time, even for highly intelligent people.

      Success doesn't come overnight. It takes hard work, being open to criticism, learning, and crafting your skill to find any kind of success here. Write about topics you're interested in, use social media to spread the word, use SEO titles, and you'll start to bring in money eventually. It can take years for this to happen.

          Sorry Ivan - hard work also includes being able to look things up on Google rather than waiting for other people to tell you the answers.

        I already read her article and commented on her article. Also, I'm getting really jealous of another person. 9 articles, 3 of which are submitted to niche sites. I've been here for 11 months, and not one of my articles got submitted to a niche site, and I will never again submit another article (to another niche site or write another article ever). As long as Hubpages is running, I will fail.

              If you always keep assuming that you will fail then you will fail. You shouldn't be afraid of failing because all the successful people have failed in their lives but the positive thing is they have never gave. Excuse me but if they were view things from your perspective they would have been losers now too. They wouldn't have succeeded or achieved anything!

              Maybe rather than compare yourself to others, start thinking about why you want to write online. A lot of really talented and great hubbers have gone on to have their own blogs where they post their expertise on various topics. Hubpages still has its purposes, but perhaps having a blog where you explore a niche topic that you are passionate about will give you freedom and autonomy to figure out what you want to write about without constantly being in the competitive mode. Start writing posts on the blog where you share expertise about a subject people are looking for, and you will garner followers. You can also link to your hubs on the blog, and potentially get more readers here.

                  If you would like to write a blog:

                  Decide what you want to write about.   It is important to choose a subject that you know a lot about, because on a blog, you have to write lots of short articles, all about the same thing.  For instance, you might choose Science as your subject, and if you do that, then all your articles would be about science. 

                  Sign up for an account on Wordpress.com, choose a name for your blog, and start writing. 

                  The trouble with a blog is that you won't be able to earn any money from it, you will just be writing for enjoyment.

      There is a song from R.E.M. called everyone hurts. It’s only natural to feel like you’re never going to do as good or better than your peers.  I am not in your particular group but as a dyslexic I can understand the frustrations of that “less than” feeling when others are doing so much better (even if that is more illusion than fact). Believing in yourself does not mean you need to not believe in others.

      Just try this, before you post something imagine it was something someone was saying to you. Would you want some stranger saying that to you?

      Life is the worst race there is because no one wants to reach the finish line.

      I didn't publish the comment in which you were mean to yourself. It made me uncomfortable, so I hit delete. Try not to tear yourself down.

      I don't even see writing that way, as some kind of competition. Writing is speech to me. When I publish something online, I'm just trying to be heard, not trying to push anyone else down or out of my way.

    Patience is a huge part of the online writing game. It takes time for your articles to find traffic, and it also takes lots of trial and error to see which of the subjects you like to write about draw traffic.

    I think you are off to a great start with your articles. You have a good variety of topics, and I'm guessing at least some of them are probably really good ones to write about because they're not already saturated on the net (just a guess).

    Keep writing about a variety of things that interest you. If you see a topic that takes off traffic-wise, write more articles about that topic, or related to that topic. Those articles will bring more and more traffic to each other. For example if your Bray Wyatt WWE article starts getting good traffic, write more articles about him if you are able to get more (different) information about him, and/or write more biographies about other WWE personalities. All the while, keep writing about other topics that interest you, and you may find another topic that takes off, an then repeat as described above with more related articles on that topic.

    It takes lots of time, patience, trial and error, but eventually you will get there if you keep working.

    I am overwhelmed of your truthfulness and honesty of your feelings on this subject
    But the best thing is to continue in your journey of education never giving up until you reach your goal of success.Sometimes we just think people are instant with talent with no work at all. But the truth is that person had to start somewhere as a beginner and continued their education intil they reach their goal, we can never know what it took or how much it cost them to reach their goal on any subject .
    The price could have been more than we could pay.

    There will always be someone with more views or more niche site articles, and it's not fair to compare people who have only recently started to seasoned Hub-veterans. Comparisons in general should really be avoided.

    If I made $400 a day with my writing and you made $1000, objectively I look great but next to you I look unworthy. That is, unless we adopt a healthier, non-comparative mindset.

    Forget how others are doing; as long as you're having fun and receiving at least some views, that counts as a success.

    Being jealous is just a waste of time, it will drain you from the inside out and it will destroy all your creativity. If someone is a better writer than you are and therefore earns a lot more money, that's only a fact, nothing more. Being jealous won't change that fact, it will only change you.

    That is not entirely true! There are many people who are making very good money blogging! It just takes a lot of time, dedication, and great content! You can use services like Adsense to make money, you can sell services or advice, charge membership fees for certain areas or privileges and if you generate enough traffic everyday companies will pay you to advertise their product or even post their content on their page. I knew a mother who had a VERY successful blog and she simply wrote about the daily hardship and truths about being a mom, now she has companies sending her things for free to try and give good review on her blog. In addition, many parenting websites have interviewed her and paid for her to guest blog. There is money to be made from blogging and Autism is a HUGE topic right now because it is just now becoming understood. There are literally hundreds of thousands of parents whose children are being diagnosed when they never would have been twenty years ago. Furthermore, many parents would love a fresh perspective from someone suffering from Autism who can give them the facts about it but in a personal (this is my experience) way. I think he could do quite well with a blog and Video blogging, OMG! People are making MILLIONS just taping themselves doing everyday things, answering questions, and acting foolish! Crazy, the things that go viral now a days!

Yes, of course we know that there's money to be made, but if you are just thinking about starting a blog, and using one of the free sites, then it's unlikely that they will earn anything for a while. Once they become familiar with blogging, then is the time to think about monetizing.

      Of course there are people who have made money from blogging.  However, it is getting more and more difficult.   

      When you look at success stories of people who get paid to blog, always look at how long ago they started out.  It's far, far more difficult for people starting out now.  For one thing, under the new rules, Ivan won't be able to get approval to use Adsense on a blog now, because he has approval for HubPages and that's that.

          That is a hard question, Ivan. 

          If you are prepared to work long hours every day, writing, dealing with readers and advertising, doing maintenance work on your website, and learning new things, then a blog can be superior to HubPages.  But it is a full-time job. Not everyone wants to devote all their time to it. 

          If you want free time to do other things, then writing on HubPages is probably a better option because you don't have to study so much, and you don't have to worry about dealing with advertisers or working on the technical maintenance of the website.

    (Unless of course their best efforts are only designed to appeal to a Troll culture).  hmm

    If you wish to take the art of writing seriously, you must not only take yourself seriously, but also seriously evaluate the qualities of those you consider to be more qualified than yourself from a positive perspective.

    When you can objectively identify and respect the qualities required to succeed, you should have no room left for jealousy, envy or negativity - If you're serious about writing and are 100% honest with yourself, then all your energies will become focused on learning to develop your writing skills.

    We each grow only to the limitations we place upon ourselves. From reading this thread it seems you have chosen to disadvantage the numerous opportunities you have here to hone your skills. Good luck is not what it takes once you understand the craft.

        I'm a Kiwi mate...
        Believe me no one is stressed on this end. We are pretty laid back people down here and not just because we're currently in the process of parading the America's Cup throughout NZ.  cool
        The comment I made was actually deeper than the depth it was taken I think... but hey... it's not the first time in 8 years here that my accent has been misinterpreted.
        Look forward to reading about your imminent success now that you've cured that perceived growing issue Ivan smile
        Always believe you can and then in time, when it is meant to be... You Will.
        Take care up there
        PD

    There is no need to be jealous about others or think less about yourself

      You're right. What was I thinking? My jealousy started because I read Kylyssa's achievements, and I wrote about that. I expressed myself to others, and I got praised, while also nearly getting myself in trouble in the process. I want to thank everyone for making this thread the way it is. I'm not jealous anymore, and that's that.

    Hi Ivan, just publish what is important to you. make it as clear and interesting as you can. do some research and make sure you spell check and correct grammar errors.
    I am dyslexic and two of my children have a genetic disorder that is on the autism
    spectrum. Just do what you love and keep at it. I have had a couple people unfriend me after they didn't like a comment I made. But it's okay, they have their opinion I have mine, it makes life interesting. No big deal, life goes on. Have a good day.

      Yeah, but I lost a follower. It could've been Kylyssa. It could've been anyone.

    I just found out that Blogging Momma's article was featured on HealDove's main site. I'M JEALOUS!!! I've never had ANY of MY articles featured on the main page of ANY SITE!! That means that I'm a failure. Her autism article was better than mines. Her article got 8,000 VIEWS IN ONLY 2 DAYS, WHILE MINE GETS 47 IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME!!!!!! I want to say bad things about her, but that would ruin my reputation at HubPages for life. WHAT DO I DO?!

    Don't be jealous of other hubbers.  Use them as teachers.  Study the articles that are featured on the main page.  See how they are written.  Observe how they are organized.  Make note of their photos/illustrations, how they relate to the articles and how they are arranged on the page.  Then try applying the same principles to your own writing.  Good writing is something that is acquired by both practice and study of good writing.

    I've never researched in my own life. That's something that can be taught, but never mastered. I've never gotten the same number of views that I got days later. I'm just never going to make it to HubPages. I've got another article coming up. maybe you can review the article. Hopefully, it reaches 20 page views in 2 days.

    Here's an idea: stop worrying about what other writers are doing, stop comparing yourself to them, and most of all, quit being such a damn drama queen.

      I can't help it. And would you quit intimidating me? It's getting to the point where I'll never write another article again and leave HubPages for good.

        Stop looking at other Hubbers if it bothers you. You have received a wealth of great information and advice. People have gone above and beyond for you more than they have for others. It's time for you to leave these forums and WRITE! Run free young man!!!

            No. Write more articles and stay. You're wasting your time in these forums now.  Use it for what it is meant..tech discussion, things of that nature. Other than that don't use it. You don't need it now.

            If you keep going like this, people will simply ignore your posts. Is that what you want?

            This is a grown-up forum and you must act like a grown-up. So instead of pressing Submit, give it 20 minutes and see if you still want to post your initial responses. Try offering your congratulations, then visiting their hubs to see what they are doing right. Use what you learn to work on your own hubs until they are the best they can be.

            Did you not read Sherry Hewin's advice on the other thread? You won't get more perfect advice than what she typed for you.

    Her article must have been excellent then to receive such praise, you should congratulate her success not sham it. They deserve the praise.

        It's getting old, Ivan. You've been doing this for close to a month now. I would imagine others are getting tired of it too.
