How do you get your ideas for writing hubs?
Do you write a hub as soon as you think of an idea? Do you have some time set aside each day to write out ideas? Do you carry a notepad to jot down ideas on the go?
I get ideas from the subjects I liked the most when I was in school. Most of the hubs that I have written are about the earth sciences, since geography, geology and biology were some of the subjects that I was most interested on, when I was a kid.
You can get your own ideas from your own interests, whether it is the subjects in school, the sports that you practice the most, your own travelling adventures, or the games that you like to play.
I have a lot of ideas for hubs, but not a lot of time to write them. I get my ideas from things that I wonder about in my daily life or a topic that I am learning more about. (I have a hub in the making on senior health insurance which I just recently got qualified to sell) Sometimes I will hear someone ask a question about a topic that I know a bit about and write it down to make a hub about it later. (Such as a question on gaining weight) I also like to write about things that I've written about before for clients, but with my own take and view on the subject or use that previous topic as inspiration. (For instance, I wrote an article on a certain type of yoga, so now I am outlining another article for hubpages on another form of yoga.)
Sometimes it is something I see on the news or something I've been thinking of. Or simply what bugs me about everyday life. I don't carry a notepad but I know I should- it's handy for any writer. But in general what I feel or have insight about I like to write about. But everyone's different- you have to find what works for you. One thing I like to do everyday in lieu of writing down ideas is perusing blogs and news sites for potential topics and if you're interested enough in providing the research- it will get you far. Good luck!
For me, my ideas for my hubs usually center around a current event or personal experience that I've encountered. There have been times when I'm out running errands and I see or hear something, and I have an "aha moment". Then again, while I write my hubs, the ideas flow from my mind onto my hub pages.
I get my ideas from my life experiences. I also read a lot and I can attribute many of my advice posts from what I have learned.

I want to write a lot of hubs (compared to what I wrote last year) this year. But the main hurdle is that I feel like I ran out of ideas or cannot create good ideas for new hubs.I come with some ideas, but they end up being too general or not good for online search. I try to think of more specific...
