I understand that our hubs are supposed to be evergreen
and personal things are more appropriate for blogs, however I noticed some hubs are written about birthdays of a child or things like that. Thoughts on that, please...
This means your articles should stand the test of time. If you write about Chinese New Year 2011 (that was only a few days ago) then your article will not be relevant anymore in the future. But things like recipes, saving money or home decoration are evergreen because that content is still interesting in many years from now.
You can write about birthdays for a child and if it is done well then it is still evergreen. Many people have children and each year there is a birthday for them. So a hub about what to do on a child's birthday is definitely evergreen because even many years from now people will want to read that article.
I have to agree with Simeon here. Children's birthdays in general is an evergreen topic. We have seen kids celebrating birthdays every single day. I recently wrote a Hub on how most parties are expensive and ways to pare down costs so that parents can still celebrate their kids' birthdays without going into debt.
Thus, you're still OK, as long as your Hubs are mostly evergreen like that!

Ok, here goes. I rarely get involved in the forums, I guess I am a little on the shy side. I have been here almost 2 years now and have published over 80 hubs. I have only had 2 ever unfeatured and have...

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it...

I've come across this word "evergreen" in many hubs. I haven't figured out what it means. Appreciate an explanation. Thanks!
