Would anyone be interested in a hub on creating Wordpress blogs? I'd be happy to oblige, but before I throw in the time I'd like to see if the need truly exists.
I figured I go into how to get your blog started, useful plugins you can get, and how to place ads on your blog.
So, is this something we would be interested in or would I be better off just answering question in the forums as they pop up? Either is fine with me.
OHHHH... Please, yoshi- YES. I am so confused about Wordpress right now. Which Wordpress, etc... I'm all over a hub, though, like to bookmark them for future reference. Forum posts get off track with information scattered all over. I'd love a succinct hub.
I would have started a Political Blog but Ariana beat me to it. Besides nothing really interest me in politics righ now. I would like to see your question and answers on the forums so I can use your tips if I decide to start a blog.
Just a thought: There are already some very good hubs that discuss blogging. You may want to do a search to see what's already been covered. I know Wordpress has been mentioned several times but I can't recall to what extent.
Dunno if that's any help to you but I thought I'd mention it.
I was thinking of taking it from the roots (how to get your site up off the ground) to the trunk (how to build your site) and up to the leaves (how to monetize your blog.
So, what I have planned would be an all-inclusive and might actually span over a series.
Enroll me in Part One: the Roots.
Where do I send my tuition check?
If hubbers could have a PayPal "Donate" link like you see on freeware, I would definitely do it.
Here's a link to the 1000+ blogging hubs, including Mark Knowles' (professional blogger) hubs, etc.
Maybe you can find things that haven't been covered very well or at all.
Jeez...I'm probably making more work for you by suggesting you check out these other hubs... I hope that's not the case.
I think I'll shut up now and let you figure out what you're gonna do!
Careful now Sara, I gotz da angry sea bass in me hand. lol!
Seriously ... It's possible it's all been done before, and as much as I would want to check out what others wrote, I want to be certain the words are my own and not remembered phrases from others works.
I'm going to take this hub from the perspective of someone starting out fresh and knowing nothing more than the word blog is a four letter word, which reminded me of so many other four letter words as I pummeled through the learning curve ... lol!
So keep on making those suggestions, as I do listen and they can only help. I just want to be certain that whatever I write comes from a fresh perspective and isn't something I read elsewhere, as I always like to make sure my writing is original.
If it's already overdone ... well ... I'll live with that, but sometimes a fresh new perspective, combined with some older ones, can make the difference in explaining a really tough topic for others.
And besides, I have some really good plugin names to throw out that I think might not have been around the many times this was handled by others (I hope).
(and yes, I made up my mind to tackle this one - Yoshi is a stubborn ole bugger - lol!)
That sounds great to me. I'm back to work and dont have the time to set up or monitor a blog right now. But I would need your A to Z type of information to get started.
That would be great yoshi. I have a few "how to" and other blog hubs bookmarked, but most are not written in "newbie" or "novice" speak. I would love an "Idiot's Guide to Blogging" or "Blogging for Dummies".
And I agree with what you said above. I just summarized some of this perspective in a hub I did on Barbara Winter's Making a Living w/o a Job. She says never be detered that it's been written before, or that someone may know more than you do, because there will alway be people who like the way you explain things.
hehe - it would definitely be 'an idiots guide' as I found out what an idiot I was when I was trying to build my own blog. lol!
But ya know what ... I fell in love with the darned thing once it was done, and it would be great to pass that feeling on to others.
I've found there is a lot of people interested in making a blog but don't know how. So yes a hub about it would be great.
However if you make it, I hope you tell how people can and should get their OWN domain and their OWN hosting for it.
A free blog on free sites is not the same as your own. I would never spend a lot of time making a blog or website on a site that could delete it in a second.
Having your own hosted blog you OWN it! You can do whatever you want with it, say what you want, SEO everything on it. You just can't do that on a free site.
Absolutely! And yes, this will be starting fresh from HOW to buy your own domain, all the way up to adding really good plugins to your finished product.
Good deal, you could make around 4 hubs with all that!
More like 6 - 8.
I was planning to do this myself during the JanHubChallenge. As it stands, I only wrote one hub, but will eventually complete the others I have partially written.
The one hub I did is "http://hubpages.com/hub/make-your-own-websites (using Wordpress). (didn't want to leave a link, so copy and paste if anyone wants to check it out)
It came out to 3, though I could expand it to more as questions arise.
I have created hub on wordpress plugins, i was planning to write hub on some other stuff of wordpress like membership sites etc. You've good idea on writing on some basics on wordpress, go ahead,this stuff is much needed here on HP.
Sometimes an idea needs to be expressed many different ways before it can become clear to all. I encourage you to add to your Wordpress collection and if you should decide you want to link to mine for any reason, you have my full permission to do so.
It would be no bad thing to do, although a lot of the tedium has been taken out of Wordpress installs in more recent versions.
a few weeks ago I finally took out one of my old Greymatter installs and replaced it with wordpress, felt like the end of an era

I’ve been reading many questions on the forums about how to get more traffic to your hubs. I’m a great believer in testing something, analysing the results, refining and sharing, and I approached the subject of how to get hub views in a practical methodical way. I’ll share my techniques below...

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

When people call their Hub a "blog" do you comment on it?I see people writing about how they are starting a blog here on Hub Pages, and I am tempted to leave a comment that Hub Pages is not a place for blogs, or to send them an email that this is not for blogs, but Haven't. It...

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!
