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!

I know the story - quality content, aged hubs, backlinks get you views.However I learnt awhile back that if you "jump on a bandwagon" you can get views too. Feel free to steal these ideas if you want - good for starting out at least. -Julia Gillard's earlobes after the election (700 views...

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 blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...
