    Why did you write your first hub?

    I wrote my first one to express my disappointment in the changes in a video game. How about you?

    I wrote my first hub because a hub has to be written before it can be read; and it has to be read--a lot!--before I make any money from it.
    I tend to learn by doing. Once I discovered HubPages, looked around and decided to test drive it, the next logical step was to write a hub.
    I wrote "Eve of Destruction" because the topic was on my mind at the time.

    I wrote my first hub because I had a lot of personal experience in the subject, and hoped that other people could benefit from tips I'd picked up. Finding HP was a matter of luck, it seemed a good place to put the information in the public domain. Writing online has been educational, and is work in progress.

    Honestly, I just kind of stumbled into Hubpages via some work search engines (currently unemployed thanks to a company layoff).

    However, I've always been interested in writing articles with pertinence to my interests and fields of college study (Technology/Games).
    So, I decided to just start writing whatever came to mind, which quickly became a decent sized log of ideas.

    I've won awards in the past for poetry and fiction, so writing isn't new to me, but publishing is. That being said, so far I've only published 4 hubs, but have enjoyed writing them and researching for them. In the meantime I'm still looking for work but hoping that if I can pump out enough articles (1-2 daily is what I want to do) I could make some side money here. Even if it isn't much.

    To be more concise and in addressing the topic question: I started because I felt like it. Because it could hold the possibility of making some money, and because it's a nice (and FREE) hobby to have as well.

    I picked a subject that I knew a lot about - docking a boat - and which I knew a lot of others didn't. My first hub and my best performing.

    Hmmm, I had to go look.

    I wrote two on my first day it appears - something about writing a difficult scene in a book - I was stuggling with my novel and a rape scene that was required....what kind of stuff to add to it without being too much. I researched and wrote a wee hub.
    Another I had researched previously, having had to use its consent in arguements since I was about 16 - Biblical Homosexuality....about Sodom and Gommorrah...can't remember the exact reason why, but I know I meant to finish the series, and only got to Leviticus....thanks for reminding me!

    Interesting question, with some interesting answers! Thanks for asking

    I wrote my first hub almost a year ago. I stumbled upon HubPages about 6 months before that doing a Google search on something. Then I ventured into the forums and got into some arguments. One individual responded to something I said with, "Write some hubs and I'll give your above comment some credibility." That didn't make me real happy so I wrote some hubs. Then I responded to that person, "Okay, I have some hubs now, does that make me a genius, or what?" Hey, I thought it was funny.
