Is Hubpages the new Rubik's Cube?
Tick, tick, tick... don't you wonder what makes the gears here move? It frustrates me that I have not figured this out yet... but I must say I love the struggle.... Do you think hubpages is the new Rubik's Cube?
Yes it's an interesting journey finding your way through online writing. I enjoy the never ending array of new things I learn like backlinking and watching the traffic flow in.. or not!
I think it's just a matter of perseverance.
No, Hubpages is not the new Rubik's Cube. No website or new addition in a line of digital devices that are named after fruits can replace the physical joy of actually stimulating your brain with fun colors and rotating cubes.

I went to your profile. It looks to me you have it figured out. You have nearly all the colors matching.
I think it is a bit of a Rubik's Cube and I am spending way too much time mentally trying to piece it all together and then telling people what I've learned, instead of actually getting in there enough and trying it out. It's now time to produce at a higher pace (after the new year, of course).
I too am finding it a "Rubik's Cube" of sorts. But maybe slightly easier to figure out. Because of many great hubbers (just like you) we are given tips, tricks, methods, and creative ways to improve hubs, getting traffic to hubs, and improving income.
Because of the wealth of practical information from HubPages and many hubbers it can become overwhelming. I actually stopped writing in order to learn many new techniques. Then I found it difficult to get back into the writing habit. I wanted to do things well (I hate to admit, perfectly) and couldn't coordinate all that I'd learned with actually starting to write again.
As Ktrapp says, "it 's now time to produce at a higher rate."
Yes, I think HubPages is the new Rubik's Cube. But it has one enormous advantage: many of the people who write on HubPaages help and encourage those of us who haven't "figured it out" to get on with the job of writing well and, yes, figuring it out as we go along.
Yes indeed! As I wander and wonder all around this site wanting to learn so much more it sure is magnetic.
I too am a writer. I discovered I must search all avenues for valid and meaningful
Rubik's Cube is not necessarily the answer. One has to find which parts of the cube apply to a given situation.
If it was easy anybody could do it and with no effort. Rubik's cube it may be.

Is it easier to figure out a murder/mystery or the rubix cube?I know one has nothing to do with the other but they are both puzzles in a way. So just curious which one would be easier for you to figure out?

So other than the fact that Google has apparently decided I am a crappy writer and my traffic is down from 17k a day to maybe 1600... with a similar decline in income... Do we yet know why this happened? Feeling a little bitter. Have had to take on enough clients that I rarely have time to...

aguasilver and I were talking about avatars in another thread.I thought it would be interesting to find out why Hubbers have chosen their specific avatars.I know those change a lot. But was wondering if anyone else wants to share what particular relevance their favorite personal avatar has?I...
