    Do you specialize in one subject on HubPages or try to cover many subjects?

    When coming up with topics for Hubs, do you mostly stick to the same subject, or do you touch on a wide variety of different subjects?

    I like to read on many subjects but I prefer to write only on what I know and practice so it is specialized in one sense

    Same here. I pretty much wrote about anything I know, so my specializations are my interests haha

    I do both, mainly because I have many interests, but specialize in a couple/few.

    I enjoy researching and learning details about things I already have interests in, as well as writing about things I'm an expert in. 

    Both are enjoyable, though I've noticed that people who write for a niche market tend to make more money (at least if their topic is currently popular.)

    I enjoy writing about events that cross my path either in my daily travels or intuitive likes.  It is a joy to be able to share special arts or places by writing hub.

    Many subjects. I get bored just sticking with one. There is so much more to be interested in than just psychology or calligraphy. There is plenty to learn and understand.

    Variety is the spice of life, as they say. I like to read and learn more and more, on different topics. The Hubpages gives the opportunity to read and write on a variety of topics and that makes it so unique.

    I specialize in one subject because it seems easier to come up with ideas for hubs and l dont have to spend hours doing research. I take pride in my work and will improve with every hub l publish

    I write on many topics because many topics interest me and I tend to get bored writing abut the same thing over and over. I try to stick with what I know and start from there. So I would not write on a topic that is totally new, it must be something I am familiar with. Most of my hubs are about food, my country, nutrition, health because I have worked in all of these industries so have some knowledge to share.

    I do both. Because of my various interests, I can't help but write about anything in anything. I do try and keep it controlled, though. Writing articles necessarily isn't like blogging where you have to stay on one subject; you can write about as many subjects as you want as long as the subject is search friendly.

    I write about whatever interests me but I like to stick with a couple of diverse topics that I have some experience with.

    My intent is to write about a wide variety of topics, however, your background and experience will influence you. Thus I have written several Hubs about the news media (former reporter), about oil and gas issues (use to do PR for oil and gas industry), religion (adult convert to Catholicism)  and other topics that are related to those subjects and others that are just things I wanted to write about. So the short answer is I do not specialize on one subject. I specialize on several subjects and then freestyle it the rest of the way.

    I write hubs on various things not only because my own interest varies, but because my audience has a wide range of interest as well.  I have those who are classic western buffs who leave me feedback for writing about western stuff.  I have different visitors yet to my poems and many in another group looking for entirely something different. I write opinion pieces, health information, reviews, general interest, animal stories, and fiction. I write about writing. I write about places I have been and people I have seen. My list keeps getting longer all the time.

    My first choice is to write about my industry, the wedding industry and that is primary. Different subjects comes secondary. Plus I feel the variety is very important to reach a larger audience, so I throw those in too. As long as it is on subjects you know or can find plenty of information on after researching, you will do well with any subject.

    I usually write about Paganism or Recycling. However, I have written articles on video games, poetry, cosplay, and more. I enjoy researching/writing on a variety of topics, so I mostly write about whatever happens to interest me at the time.

    I touch on a wide variety of different subjects.  That way, I don't get bored by just sticking to only one thing.  Plus, I'll be able to reach more readers by pursuing multiple topics.
