Anyone else fed up with them? Well, I am for one. Bored sick of them.
They all start exactly the same. "This pandemic across the world blah blah blah..." And all on the same theme; how to make it better by being positive.
People are losing loved ones, losing their livelihoods, and suffering in all kinds of ways. Unless you have something really USEFUL or ORIGINAL to say, find another topic, fgs.
I shan't be reviewing any more
They will continue to come in. The people who write these think the topic is a traffic magnet because the WHOLE WORLD will be interested.
Me. My siblings are being assigned homework related to Covid-19 situation. I am done.
ThanQ for your kind feedback..!!
And Noted with Thanks.
As you have probably noticed from my replies to the "positive attitude about the pandemic" articles, I just want to scream. I live in NJ, at the epicenter of the pandemic here in the US. All I see is a humanitarian disaster all around me. Smile and do yoga doesn't cut it when people can't feed their children because they haven't worked in months because everything is closed.
I was going to say something similar (I almost posted about it to the forums awhile back) but ended up not saying it. Along with what you said about it, I'd add that I don't know why people are writing about something that everyone else is already writing about. It's so not inventive. And, if they are going to write on the subject, at least, please, take a unique angle on it; like you said, not the weak "be positive" approach.
An aside: My 3 least favorite pieces of trite advice - Be Positive, Work Hard, Do What You Love. These have no basis in reality and indicate a lack of comprehension and empathy. I think it is in a crisis that people can see how trite and condescending this kind of advice is.
"At some point, the articles written about COVID-19 will surpass the number of people that actually died from it..."
And it's not just HubPages, of course. It's everywhere. We hardly watch the news these days. All I want to do is to get through this with my family intact and healthy. I don't need to read any more advice about how to keep myself amused.
Get off the bandwagon, you newbies!
The Kashmir was in lockdown months before the pandemic. What really surprises me is that we have not seen a rash of articles on "How to Feel Good and Be Happy in the Pandemic and Other Lockdown in the Kashmir".
A new twist has appeared in an article about the "pendamic."
Damn panic? Pin darner? the possibilities are endless.
I agree it doesn't make sense to write worn out topics if there is no new angle or a different perspective from the most discussed ones.
And terrible as this crisis is now, it will end. So these articles are not going to be evergreen topics. If a writer is really a well-being expert, write a more general hub that is not destined to be discarded on the scrapheap of history as the world moves on. I don't think people who have suffered through this are going to want to revisit the topic in a hurry. More likely will want to rebuild their lives and focus on the future.
we in malaysia had been lockdown since march.
yes, lots of hubs are surfacing on this covid 19 issues and we all.know how to keep ourselves safe and healthy.
i wish there are more hubs on stay at home jobless people.
anyway, it is about time we should read something else

Mine still haven’t gone back to the level they were at before the pandemic.My views lately have been trailing down. For the past couple of months things have been somewhat stagnant.I think overall earnings for 2021 will be better than 2020.

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool". 2. Make a hub based on that topic that is somewhat broad concerning that...

Hi fellow writers,Yesterday I recognized that the homepage of HubPages has a new design and in the mid of this I discovered a fellow writer with the most earnings here at HubPages. He's a member since 7 years, has published 55 articles which have been read over 1,000,000 times and he makes over $...

I want to write a lot of hubs (compared to what I wrote last year) this year. But the main hurdle is that I feel like I ran out of ideas or cannot create good ideas for new hubs.I come with some ideas, but they end up being too general or not good for online search. I try to think of more specific...
