I want to write a perfect article. How do I do it? It is impossible. If you've read my articles, I have written some half-decent to decent articles. How do I do it? How do I write an article that'll bring in close to 1000 views per week?
You have already been told by over a dozen different people on multiple threads over the course of weeks..go back and study those threads because it has all been covered there. There is just nothing more for us to give you.
I'm not a good student of threads. DON'T YOU GET IT!! I'm a failure.
So even if a kind hubber goes through it all and tells you again.... you won't take any notice? So we are wasting our time?
You have to stop this, Ivan. Take a break from HubPages for a week and then see if it's still somewhere you want to hang out.
BTW, That's not very helpful advice. On my next survey, I'll make a note of everything that has ever happened.
Visit the learning centre http://hubpages.com/faq/ and stop worrying about whether you are a success or failure here. It is irrelevant and simply does not matter. Concern yourself with traffic from Google and not writers on HubPages, these should not be the focus of your attention.
If we knew that, we'd all be doing it.
Ivan, you have been doing great. Your articles are also getting moved to vertical sites. I guess you undermine your capabilities and talent. Do not overthink, everything will be okay!
Actually there is no perfect article, yet consider your article to be perfect if you really love what you are doing. Frankly one month is nearing to pass and I'm yet to hit 1000 views. But who cares! My mind is as free as f**k when I write, and together with Church Sunday Mass, Martial arts, toy and knife collection, writing is my life.
It seems like you need to find social support in your life. Please speak to people around you about this. A website is not a place where you will find unconditional positive support.
If you have questions about writing hubs we will help. But you real life issues need to be expressed to real people, in person or perhaps from a help line. Trying to deal with them here is just getting in the way of doing what you really need to do.
i do have social support, but most of it is on social media. i dont get help from outside sources, because of the fear of being judged.
I would gently suggest that you need to work on that. Online support is somewhat uncertain and can only take you so far. You might want to try a help line, or a local group relating to one of your hobbies, to help build some in person support. It can be difficult but it will be worth it if you persist.
Well as Sherry said, if we knew the answer to that we'd all be doing it. I've read some of your hubs and they are very good.
im back. after 10 days resting and 7 days inside a hospital, i came to realize that my articles are awesome, but my autism article has dropped to zero views per day. hopefully, it goes the way of blogging mommas articles and not be a complete waste of everyones time. now, im limiting myself to 3 forum posts per day.
wheres poppyr? I need to apologize to her.
Hey Ivan, welcome back.
You must read the new blog post of HP. Writing through mobile has been simplified.
my real name is Erick, but i had to choose a different name because my first name was already taken, so i'm stuck with my dad's name.
um, bev. none of my articles are getting views. i need to write a new one, but with no computer and with blogging momma's articles getting more famous, i might as well just call it quits. however, you wont see me complain anytime soon because you and everybody else are right. i havent listened to your advice, and thats what got me banned in the first place. im sorry for the damages that i caused. i hope everyone can forgive me for my sins.
Erick, it goes like that when you just have a few articles. The more you write, the better chances you have of getting traffic. I had none for a year or so. When you get access to a computer you can pick up where you left off. Your hubs aren't going anywhere - they'll wait for you
Please don't keep comparing yourself to other hubbers. You are not competing with them. You really have to understand this - it's important. It's not one hub against another because they are all different. You will find your own niche soon enough.
Meanwhile, there's nothing preventing you from writing - just use old fashioned paper and pen. You can have a whole stack of articles prepared for when you are ready to publish.
We didn't know you were banned. Lots of us get banned now and then
There's nothing to forgive. You're fine.
You made some nice strides in your writing I thought, breaking up long paragraphs etc, things of that nature. The more you do it, the better you get like anything. You also have to remember that you often need lots of material to start earning, as in if you have for say 60 articles, 15 to 20 may be the ones that take off. It's just how it works for everyone. Everyone starts form zero at Hubpages. It's all about how the house is built Hubpages just supplies the tools.
I have noticed when Eric is after something, he is dangerously involved in it. He once said it's because of who he is. I guess Eric's mouth-publicity is giving much traffic to blogging momma.. He he. BTW I like the name (blogging momma).
And Eric, you write good hubs. You know, there are so many who struggle to pass the QAP.
You have successfully passed that stage.
As Bev said, every Hubber is different.
Your hubs are unique and based on real life experience Ivan, so they are simply fantastic.
Bev, it really relieves to hear you had been patient for a year before traffic started flowing in. It's encouraging
Hope you don't mind.. He he.
blogging momma is an excellent writer. i think she has the potential to be big on this site. i have exellent writing as well, just not as good as hers. i dont want to complain anymore. i want to help new hubbers AND write new articles, but i have writers block.
Hi Erick - when you are fairly new at something you can't expect to compete with people who have been doing it (whatever it is - writing, sewing, painting, etc) for a long time. You need to compete with yourself. With each new article that you write, attempt to make it better than the last. Review the hubs that you have written and look for areas that need improvement and change them. When you run after a goal, take small steps. Expecting the best from yourself early on will only frustrate you. Good luck!

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

I just passed my three year and 100,000 page view landmarks.Thank you my friends and fellow word crafters for your friendship and constant support as I have grown in this discipline of writing. We're all busy people. Writers would be busy even if we had no family, social or work...

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

Is it better to write for HubPages or Squidoo?Recently, I've heard a lot about Squidoo being possibly better than HubPages in many aspects. Which do you think is better to write for if you're looking for traffic and earnings?
