Would people read hubs written about my experiences as an inner city Social Worker?
14 years ago, I started doing Social Work in one of the poorest areas of my city. I have said hundreds of times that I should write a book on my experiences....I wonder if HubPages would be a good place to start ???
There's really only one way to find out. A lot will depend on your writing style, but you have nothing to lose by giving it a go. Seeing life from a new angle can be very interesting. Good luck.
My advice to you is give it a try and see what happens. You don't have anything to lose.
HubPages is always a good place to start writing period. You can try your style and voice here and get a feel for what people think. The community at HubPages is supportive and encouraging so my personal opinion is this is probably the best place to start!
Innerspin, tillsontitan, and Goody5, all have good advice. You can't really know for sure what subjects may interest people until you write about them. What works for you may not work for other writers, and vice versa. It costs you nothing but your time to give it a try. Think about how you want to present your information and make sure to choose a tantalizing title. Good luck!
Sure. I would read them.... unless I started to get the feeling they were becoming over-dramatic or the highs and lows of your experiences were being sensationalized for the purpose of entertainment. If you want to make novels out of true stories, that's fine. If you write stories for education, that's fine. But if I feel that someone is purposely misrepresenting themselves or their motives, I will shut it down quickly.
I'm not so sure that the stories would be educational but they would certainly be factual.
Then give it a shot. I will follow so I know when you post. You can't win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket. To me, getting thoughts out is more important than the response. So, I set my own path and if people come along for the ride it's a bonus
IDONO - I really appreciate your feedback...and you couldn't be more right about the lottery ticket Verbally when I tell these stories I feel like my listeners are in awe....hanging on each word...however, I am not sure that my strength lies...

All of us, as writers, have put together some difficult pieces. What was the most difficult piece you've ever written? I would say that mine would have been regarding security of VPS's. I want to see what kind of crazy...

It doesn't necessarily have to be something you've written for Hubpages. I'm just wondering if, like me, you have anything from your past that you have written and looking back on it makes your blood curdle because you...

I wonder if HubPages would consider enabling the strike through HTML tag in the editor. There are times when conditions I've written about have changed. I don't really want to delete the text as much as let the reader...
