Do you have a blog? What do you write about?
Do you keep your topic to a single subject or do you write about a variety like some do here at HubPages? Just wondering what people blog about and whether to try it myself...any help?
I write about current events in popular culture on my blog- namely music, movies, and television with the occasional sports write-up. My hubpages is about the same, but I'm trying to write about other things as they come into my head. My advice is to write about what you know. If you know cooking, write about that and then if you want to find about new things try that as well. I think as long as you're welling to learn and become a better writer, it'll work out in the long run. Good luck!
I have two blogs, one I started on Wordpress and one on Blogger. I moved to rural Brazil 2 years ago and life is so different. I try and write about the difference but as we are also starting a fish farming business I have less and less time to do so.
Also, I have read, that if you are writing to make money, you are better to spend your time writing here on hub pages or an equivalent platform. People who read blogs aren't necessarily there to buy things.
I have a couple of blogs. One is about my transition from life after teaching. It is kind of a diary style and really helped me to clarify things. Only a couple of close friends follow and comment on it.
My other blog is associated with my parenting coach business. I use it to list articles and interact with my target market. I often leave links to articles I've posted here and vice versa so it helps with my traffic a little bit.
There are two reasons I can think of that might entice you to "try it." Blogs are great places to write about non-evergreen content or things that wouldn't do as well on hubpages. The other reason is there is another entirely different type of community out there where you might find additional inspiration...but just a warning..no writing community is better than the one here at hubpages:)
Indeed, I do. I write about and share photos of my art and share music that I have created so people can view my creative efforts all in one place.
I have a blog for my wire crafts. I write about the inspiration for each design, the challenges and successes in creating them and show images of the final product.

Why do you write on hubpages rather than making your own blog?I have been thinking about making a blortal(blog portal). But I take back my step when I see the huge prices for getting a web host and then maintaining your own blog. Making your blog visible in the blog world, etc. etc.Why do you blog...

Are you happy with your experience? I've been with HubPages for 5 years now. I have almost 500 articles and the majority of them are featured. I publish quite frequently and follow all of the rules. I post my articles to facebook and pinterest, I am part of Amazon Associates, and yet I make very...

I was just curious about how many of you all have blogs outside of hubpages and what the sites are? Do you make money from them like hubpages? Is hubpages where you do the majority of your writing or is hubpages secondary to something else?I'm trying to decide whether starting one would be...
