How do you stay motivated to keep writing on HubPages?
How do you deal with burnout?
Sometimes I think I've run out of ideas for hubs, then I write three in a row. The motivation for me is going a week without a comment. I'm addicted to the interaction.
I wrote a hub called Hubbing is Like Being Promiscuous. You might relate.
Not having an actual job motivates me. I feel productive on here because I'm learning a little extra income that my family needs. Building up the income and trying to think about topics to write about it challenging but I'm staying hopeful that It'll pay off in the long run.
I just watch all those sweet, sweet pennies roll in daily, and know that I am just a few hubs away from hitting the big time.
I read the success stories about once per week and then envision myself achieving those results and mimic how it would feel. I also enjoy checking everyday to see how much I made the day before.
Burnout can happen quickly on here so I MUST take at least one day off per week where I don't even think about HP. I usually have a routine I follow M-F and then Sat I take off and Sun. I research articles I will write for the next week.
I read hubs of the people who write better than me and challenge myself that I will do better than this. This motivates me.
Just think of a favourite hobby or pastime and put it in the middle of an A4 sheet of paper. Then make it like a clock with twelve lines going from your word. and at the end put another word there. So now you have thirteen possible themes from the twelve themes draw two more lines and put a word relating to your second theme on the clock. Now you have 37 possible hubs.
It's particularly hard to stay motivated when revenue goes down for no reason. One would hope that with each successive hub, the numbers would only go up, but it's easy to forget that the internet is dynamic. The same hub that earned you a dollar today, could earn you nothing tomorrow. I would say to put the money aspect out of your head, but I think we all know that isn't possible. Rather, if you can't find any new ideas, try to hang out on the answers section or the forum section. Or if you're burnt out of the site entirely, take a few days off. The last thing you want to do is start hating this place because you feel obligated to come here.
While it can be strong some days, motivation likely is not at a high level every day. Writing for HubPages is no exception. Here are ways to stay motivated to keep writing hubs! read more
Having followers who leave well thought out and constructive comments is a huge motivating factor for me to keep writing here. Also, I love expressing myself and HubPages is the venue I have chosen because of quality writers and the range of topics covered. With a short summer season (I live in the northeastern United States) I don't publish as much content as I do during the other three seasons. However, my ideas are put into an MS Word document so when my writing resumes I will remember a host of subject matters.
It has been my best friend so there is no point of being apart from it.
If I got lots of beautiful comments and my family. that's keep me on writing and be motivated.
Right now my motivation is the Apprenticeship Program. It is incredible to be a part of this program and has made me strive for bigger and better hubs! Without the program, my motivation is I get "me" time, away from the stress of life, when I'm writing my hubs! Couldn't as for more then that!
Good encouraging comments from fellow members, keeps you going. And there is so much to read on any and every topic.
to increase my knowledge, writing skills and money are my few motives on hp...

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

I am such a champ at procrastination. I am well aware that this online thing takes time, effort, and lots of work. Yet for the past couple of days, I have not been able to get motivated to do anything constructive online. Of course, I've had time to post on the forum's 'last post contest' thread...

I used to be a hubber and I posted how to's and informational hubs, but I got burnt out because it wasn't my niche. I have written one short story now, do you think creative writing is a good way to go on hubpages?

If making money wasn't an option on HubPages, would you still write for this site...No matter if you make pennies a day or dollars. This question isn't about how much money a hubber makes. I'm just curious how many hubbers would still hub if they weren't earning money for the pub or to get some...
