    What's better: Focus on one area of interest or write on a bunch of different topics?

    I believe you will get more followers by being focused. People will be interested in the next thing you have to say.
    You will get an overall greater reach to audience by being diverse.
    I advise you to write what you are passionate about. If you are anything like me it will be about a whole lot of subjects.

    I find for writing that doing it on a few different subjects is much better, you don't get bored of the same old thing, you can attract a bunch of different followers for your different subjects...its much more fun.  people have many interests, and being able to write about any of them definitely feels more free than having to constantly stick to one.

    It is good to write on a variety of topics which you have expertise on. If you only focus on one area of interest, it comes across as spammy in my estimation.  Always write on many subjects.  That way you will catch the interests of your particular audience and will always remain fresh.

    I agree with everyone here. Start with one interest you're passionate about, earn some followers, gain some traffic, and expand from there.  I've started with Pilates and yoga, since I've started a gym membership, (they're regular hubs) and expanded to poetry, writing, green health, heart health, etc. Catch my drift? Good luck!

    A bunch is ok as long as you know what you are talking about.  If you have passions write about them first even if its just family stuff.  I learned that writing about several different things didnt work for me so well.  Now that I look back my passion never came out for the subjects I really had no interest in.

    Write about what you know and enjoy. You could be a Jack of all trades and write about many different topics; or, you could be a master of one thus focusing on one area.

    It depends on you.  If you have a variety of things to share then write about all of them.  If you're a poet then let people know it.  Write about what interest you.

    I think you should write about everything you know perfectly. If you have a lot of passions and know several topics, writing articles on all of these would be great and attract various types of readers, otherwise it's better to focus on one topic you know very well.

    While it is better for page views if you can become an expert in one field, it can get a little stale for the writer. I have found that the writers that pick a particular subject that allows them to diversify into a broader range of topics, serves to keep the writer exploring new possibilities and passionate while maintaining an audience that looks forward to their ideas and opinions.

    Nadine May or Sparkster would be perfect examples of what I'm talking about, both of these writers are known for their particular subjects, both are published writers of fiction and non fiction and both tackle new ideas within their particular fields.

    Both writers are also very accomplished Hub Page writers with loyal fans but are also able to interest and gain new readers all the time, while staying true to their main topics.

    While most writers wouldn't touch the subjects I write about if you paid them, I'm still am able to continuously find new avenues to explore.

    I would say find a niche and broaden your horizons from there.
