      from my head!  Something might trigger me to think hubber!  I will try anything really that takes my fancy and learn by it, at the same time I have created a hub about it.  If you have a thirst for knowledge, then research the subject and hub what you have learned.  It really is a great thing at hubpages! x

      The idea bank is always a good place to look whenever you're stumped.

      Overall, just write whatever interests you and write what you know.

      I've got millions of ideas all based on my personal interest! It's not difficult to have ideas but to write good quality hubs based on these ideas! If you are a good writer and you are good in organizing your thoughts, you can write several hubs on just one idea! You can write about your hobbies, work, life experience, different opinions on different matters like friendship, relationships...visit forums and get the idea for your hub from posted questions, write about topics based on magazine or newspaper headlines...anything!!!

      My life plays a key interest in what I write. I won't write about something unless I am truly interested in it and am confident that I understand it enough to write about. Other times, I just go at it and you're stuck with what you get.

      I get my inspiration from my family, 90 percent of them are nuts, so that makes for good writing.

      99.9% of mine come right from my own mind since most of them are creative, others on health issues etc. The .1% come directly from the Answers area of hubpages. You can turn the questions into hubs.smile

    Where do you get idea for your hubs?

    I have a vast amount of knowledge and wisdom that I want to share with the World. For every life that I touch, there is a good effect to happen.

    My life's purpose is based on morality and a determination to change society's direction, regardless of whether or not, I have to go one by one. This automatically develops/creates ideas for me to move forward and I can prioritize them so as to push the idea into a reality of action.

    Thank you for the question. smile

    I did quite a bit of work for the historical society where I used to live, so I take a lot of the research that I did there and transfer it to my hubs.

    For my articles on unusual places and such, I have several books about places to visit.  I'll visit the places that interest me, take notes, a few pictures, and I'm good to go.  All I have to do is pull out the information, do a little research, and write out a few paragraphs.

    For everything else, it just comes out of me head.. There's not a lot in there, so I don't know how that's possible, but it is. hmm

    The best advice I can give is this: Find books or magazines that interest you.. pick a topic that one of them covers, then either try to prove that article wrong or make it better.

    Just a thought.. big_smile

    mine all come from my past, or my life present, but what helps, because I noticed that I will think about something, and think, that would make a good hub.  Then later I forget what it was.  So when I think of an idea right away I get my notebook out and jot it down, then later I don't forget.  I have gotten four or five in advance written down in the notebook, then I get to choose which one I want to work on.

    To be honest I have only started and I have so many ideas from the world around me that I am struggling to understand how I am going to up load them, I would say for now just look around you, I want to know about where you live, what time is it waht is the weather like etc, I think start with the basics and then add....you might think that nobody is interested in what you have to say...but I am and I am sure there are many more.....yesterday I was communicating her eon the Hub with a lady from Australia...she is loading pics of her kangaroo...that sort of thing...

    I keep a list of possible Hub topics and when I have a thought about a possible new hub topic I put it on the list.  I also rip interesting articles out of the papers and magazines and then come back to them if I think a Hub can be written on the topic.

    pretty much thngs of my own experience or interest. I have to be moved by it in some way and I have a list of  hubs partially finished because they just......didn't come to gether like I wanted. so back to the drawing board for tweaking.

    You've just had a nice long evening chat with a friend on the phone about some subject of interest to the two of you. Maybe your friend was asking for advice and you gave him or her your ideas and viewpoints as some friendly guidance. You hang up after saying goodnight and as you sit and think about the conversation a moment, you suddenly realize "Hey! I can write about that on HubPages!!!"

    My life- my readings- things I hear or see that strike up a thought that last more than a moment. Things I believe in-strive for-hope for and wish for. Things that annoy me-scare me- and frustrate me...
    My ideas come to me at random, and my hubs tend to revolve around my state of mind on that particular day.

    I get mine from the Google adwords external keywords tool plus any spikes of mass interest that I happen to notice. I'm pretty interested in my own life but I don't expect many other people to be so I don't write about it.

    They are all there in a filing cabinet in the back of my mind.

    It just takes me a while to untangle them and decide which one to write about next. I have a bad habit of having at least six unpublished hubs on the go at once because some days I want to write about one thing and some days another.
