    How do you choose your hub topics?

    Do you get ideas from other hubs or questions or just your muse?

    I honestly write what ever I am thinking about, I just turn it into a more focused article so people can engage in it. Sometimes I get ideas from my sister, if I am having a hard time coming up with anything.

    I use many methods to come up with ideas for hubs.  Sometimes I'll see a question or response on hub pages that will give me an idea.  Sometimes I'll see or read something that perks my interest.  Ideas for writing are everywhere.  I just pay attention!

    So far, I think about things that I've wanted to know in the past, and had a difficult time finding information on. I think the next topic is going to be as simple as "what do I find delicious enough to cook."

      Thats a good idea Tom, writing about something you want to know about!

    My topics are things that I have knowledge in.  Eventually, I will do something on stamp collecting, which I have not touched upon yet.

      That is quite a twist from bird watching!  Can't wait to see that!

      I did a couple of them, quite a while ago now.

    At the moment I am following my own series, that I had decided to write about. The instructions say, write about what you know, and about what you like. This would make one sound enthusiastic, I think, and that makes the writing more alive! I still have a lot of topics that I know about, and through reading other Hubs, I have rememberd still more topics. My problem at the moment is not the topics, it's finding the time and the energy to do all I want to do. I have recently stopped taking some strong medication, and that has weakened me, I get tired. But my ideas get ahead of me! Long may it last!

      I hope you make out all right with your medications and get your strength back quickly.

    Damn, Tillie!!!   I was hoping to squeeze this info out of your genius mind??!!  Now I'm screwed! 
    Oh, OK...I'll be serious for a second......They come to me out of the blue...although I'm sure that sub-consciously, my topic ideas are related to things I see and hear throughout the day..   Once in a great while, I will simply decide to write about a cause that may be very important to me.....
    The worst is the times I can't think of a blank.  I hate that.

      I just wanted to see what other people do....I know your topics are always great no matter where they come from.

    Comments on previous hubs can spark an idea, too!

    I write about things that I love... travel, books, etc... hubs that I would like to read myself.

    My hubs come from things that I'm interested in or that I'm fairly knowledgeable about. Sometimes I'll just be watching t.v and daydreaming and think oh I have to write about this topic! Or I have a little notebook of ideas that I want to write about and if I really have writers block I'll look for inspiration there.

      Me too!  Sometimes ideas pop into my head in the strangest places.

    I come up with hubs in many different ways. I have been using my job as a tour escort as the topic of many, then sometimes I see a hub that makes me think of something that I feel strongly about. I was scared at first that I would be unable to write, but it seems to come easier all the time, Now if I could overcome my stupid dyslexia and not have to continually correct my backwards spelling it would be tons easier!

      Oh holconrad, you have great ideas and I'm sure, or at least I hope, that things will get easier for you.

    I have always written about topics that interest and intrigue me.  Only being 7 hubs into my HubPages journey, I haven't paid very much attention to SEO or topics that pay well.  However, my earnings reflect those statements.  Writing is a very personal thing for me and a calling.  Anyone can settle for cheap, but lasting quality is hard to find.   I would love to read Hubs that writers labored over for weeks, and edited dozens of times before publishing.  However, those writers would have a hard time making enough to get by on this site.  I want my Hubs to represent my talent fairly.

      True...your talent and your taste.  I think each hub we write is a little part of us that we are sharing with others, no matter what the topic.
