Most of my hubs are through imagination. Some are formed around factual events. And some are things that have happened in my life.
I pick up books. Used textbooks in psychology, management, criminal justice, etc. They always spark an interest, a desire to learn more. But the psychology ones, I have more of since that is my major in college. Others are just hobbies such as calligraphy.
Ideas for me come in 3 categories: 1) my experiences/training, 2) my interests, and 3) tapping into what people are interested in that I might know a little about and can present in an interesting way. I explore #3 continuously trying to keep up with trends, current events, etc., what the masses need.
My own Google searches, lately. I figure that, if I'm searching for something, someone else likely is, too.
From my interests and some recent news / development on a field of interest. Two of my recent hubs on protecting wolves and protecting snow leopards have come out of recent news of unethical hunting involving the two animals and my interest in livestock guardian dogs.
Hi, I believe the common thread -- among older readers -- is their life's story. It's said that "truth is stranger then fiction." So be it -- I strongly suggest you either write of your own experiences -- as I do -- if, of course, they are exciting enough to hold your readers attention -- or, you might consult with any number of family members, or friends asking if they'll allow you to interview them for interesting , personal accounts you can write as a "story", for publication. However, be certain not to inadvertently "plagiarize" them. In lieu of your own stories, the search for one could be a bit daunting, but worth the effort in the long run. Good hunting!
Life events, imagination, interest, topics, influence, the internet. I've just started so I still have many places to go.

(I hope 'hubbing' is a colloquial verb. If it is not, I just made a major fool of myself.)I created a Hubpages account a few days ago. Since then, I've written three Hubs. Two are published and there is a third in QA....

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

I started a series called The Psychology Query several months back which I intended to publish weekly answering questions I received here and through other sites. Unfortunately, many of the questions I get are...
