    Favorite Hub Topics

    What are your favorite hubs to write and read? Do you guys typically like hubs similar to those you write, or do you like to check out hubs completely different from the topics you write about? Just curious!

    Hi Kathleen,

    I'm a relatively new Hubber, so I am not sure of what expectations are around this community, other than to get somewhat involved, predominantly as a writer.

    I think one of the expectations is to read the material of other Hubbers.

    To honest, I have read very little of anyone else's material. And only because that particular writer read what I wrote and commented.

    That was over three months ago when I submitted my first post. I haven't read anything on HubPages since.

    I've a broad range of interests I am sure are covered somewhere in HubPages, but I never bother to look or read, largely because I go to HubPages to write. And there is enough to read on the internet just getting from one site to another.

    I write what comes to mind. As I am learning to write for a real audience, I am doing a great deal of experimenting with different topics and styles. Waiting for feed back that doesn't come. This is unfortunate because this is how we learn, from feedback,

    So this is what the real challenge may be for me, and may be for you, if you are struggling.

    People who produce anything need feedback, even if they are just digging a ditch. Is is deep enough? Wide enough? Am I doing it fast enough?

    Writers I am sure are no different.

    The ones who will do well here may be part of a community within a community, following one another and providing feedback.

    No matter though, the body of work does get bigger with each post and  sooner or later I will achieve my objectives. I am in no hurry.

    By the way, even though I receive no comments or feedback, I have written and published a dozen or so pieces (also unpublished a few). The number of views/reads tells me a great deal as far as where other people's interests may be and whether or not they liked it or not. Good material rarely gets ignored.

    I'm not sure, but I would think I might be a fairly typical Hubber when it comes to
    writing, and especially when it comes to reading other people's material.

    Sorry, I tend to get long winded and something I need to fix.

    Best ever...

    They are whatever I feel interested in at that moment. I cannot pick any certain ones except for nature.

    I too am fairly new to this community but the thing about it is that I have been noticing how more and more people are either commenting in the forum and answers sections than the individual hubs.  My focus is getting to a point to where I am writing at least one featured hub a day.  So far so good I am only a couple hubs off of my goals.

    Anyways, I write on topics that I have knowledge in and also are keyword popular.  You see I have different goals than others and currently I am trying to write things which are more related to the internet marketing niche.  There are many people who are searching for ways to make money online and I am just sick and tired of seeing people getting screwed over by not getting information that they can just follow step by step in laymens terms.  The concepts behind earning income online are easy if you have a base understanding.  So I try to gear towards the marketing fundamentals online so that people can understand that you cannot seriously make a living by doing just one thing.  Time management is key so I use Hub Pages as my outsource.

    I hope that this answered the questions asked.

    I'd say the majority of the hubs I read are written about topics with which I'm already interested. Yet there are some that grab my attention because it's a topic I've heard about and want to learn more. Others are about things I've never heard about, I get curious enough to read one hub, and I get hooked on the topic.

    I love writing about anime, games, and sports while I usually read hubs with topics that are unfamiliar to me like other places' history, diseases, environmental issues, and politics. Anything completely new to me interests me more than something I already have a clue about.
