I'm about to post my first Hub, but along with the butterflies I'm having second thoughts.
My Hub is a personal, humorous story, about a life lesson I learned, but upon further review I realized that it doesn't have helpful business info, web ideas, etc like so many of these great Hubs I've been reading. My question, is this a bad idea for a Hub? Purely anecdotal and inspirational (hopefully not de-flational). Thank you very much for any help you can offer.
Come on in - the water's fine! Begin writing hubs about what you're comfortable with, and you can gradually get out of your comfort zone to write hubs that might bring you more traffic, if that's what you're looking for.
Your hubs don't have to be packed full of business info, marketing strategies, product reviews etc - it's just that those ones tend to make the most money! Personally I just write hubs for the enjoyment of writing them; often mine are not necessarily on topics that would generate a lot of money, but more on topics I'm interested in! So go ahead, publish it - I'll certainly read it!
Post it, any subject matter is valid as it's a big wide world out there and you can guarantee someone will be interested in the content, no matter how obscure (not that yours sounds obscure).
It's not all about business and personally I spend lots of time reading articles on all manner of subjects, so get it out there. Until you've posted your first hub, you can't get on with your next one!
I'd love to read it, it seems to be an interesting read. Go ahead and post it, I'm sure a lot of people will be inspired by it.
What would you do if you found a particular hub you've read completely useless? My guess is you'd move on witout giving it additional thought. Worst case - readers will simply move on. I say post it. You may hit the head of someone's nail.
I didn't think Terry Pratchett reviews would be anything people here would be interested in, but the Hubbers are great. Very welcoming and willing to read what you chose to write. I suppose there's only one way to find out, right?

It plagued one. And now another hub seems to have caught it.I'm seeing significant drops in traffic to a couple of my hubs. Maybe it's just because they're not new and intriguing any more, but I don't want that little blue icon to appear all over my stats. Help! What do I do?Any tips or advice for...

I like helping people with their hubs. I've gotten to know the ins and outs and how it works. I know how to use the tools and other websites to drive your traffic. If you are new post hubs in here and I will get to each one of them to let you know what I think

As they say, "First impression always lasts", and with regards to Hubpages, we can say that "First Hub Comment, Always Lasts". We all feel nervous and excited with our first hub, thinking that it may not be read by other hubbers, or may not produce lot of traffic,...
