For those of you who saw Ann Nonymous forum where it was announced that I would be taking a leave of absence for a while, will be happy to know that I decided to end my absence. Even though I still haven't found a job yet, I decided I'll still try to publish hubs frequently. As I kind of got inspired from some of your comments in this forum
You see in real life, I've talked to A LOT of people about hubpages, and many of them feel I should quit. That's why I made that announcement on my profile in light of my current situation. As i usually try to spend at least 20 plus hours a week on hubpages, so I can build up a fan base. However, when I saw my earnings being only about 20 dollars and seeing other hubbers who had more fans than me, and haven't been on here as long as I have. I started to agree with them, and thought what could it hurt if I just left for a while until I found another job. I doubt seriously anyone outside of a few people that read my reviews frequently would care. However, when I read the forum comments, I was happy to be proven wrong. What I previously thought was a waste of my time, turns out it wasn't. Therefore, I decided not to leave hubpages completely. Which would explain for those of you who have noticed, why I've been publishing hubs during the past few days. although my appearances in forums is a bit scarce lately. it's because you all inspired me.
and convinced me this site isn't dead weight or a waste of time like so many of the people i talked to about this site in real life. lol. anyway, i just wanted to let you all know, and to most of all say THANK YOU all for being my inspiration. Besides, I would hate for all the photos i saved for the new iron man sequel to go to waste. lol. anyway, i hope you all will still follow me, and i promise I will try to become a much better writer as time goes on.
Steve, you mentioned that a lot of people you talked to feel you should stop writing here.
There is not any reason in the world why you can't write here, even after you find your next job.
It is a productive place to be.
I'm glad you're still here, and let me give you some advice. Keep this a fun place for yourself. Don't get caught up in the personal forum drama BS. Mostly though I wanted to say, do whatever the hell you want to buddy, and don't worry about what other people tell you. You won't earn a living here, but why not get a few bucks for doing something you enjoy.
yeah, that's true. thanks for the advice. i'll definitely try to remember that.
You write good reviews, I always get a kick out of them.
Back to get the forums rolling with fun topics! Okay, so there's this 60 day challenge going on, that might boost all your work. One hub a day, for 30 days, and then 30 days promotion. That could send you through the roof, and, I would recommend moving your Amazon and E-bay boxes above your comments, as one order from Amazon is almost as much money as two months Adsense, for me.
Yay! Welcome back!
You can spend time on hubpages and spend time on finding a job! It's all about balance And just because finding a job is a priority doesn't mean you can't do anything fun!
yeah, that's true. although i probably won't be in forums nearly as often as before though. however, i'll still try to write hubs here whenever i can.
really? wow, how do you set it up? is it pretty hard to do?
Okay first hop on over to Sunforged! There is a great few hubs on it. Also, are you one Redgage? did you know you can put in there that you are looking for work?
Sorry so off topic. I'll go dig up the 60 days thread, and brb!
Here's the thread:
Simply put, sign up, make a hub log for your 60 day challenge. Then use these tags on all your hubs
60dc, 60dayschallenge, and (on the hub log only) 60dc-logs.
Claim the RSS feed that Sunforged started, and put that in an RSS feed capsule on all your hubs for the challenge. If you wrote any in the last couple days just use them, as the challenge started April First..
oh okay. does the hubs i already published on april 1st and on count still? or no since I didn't enter the challenge at the time?
Sure, you can use them. You didn't know about it. I saw a couple others do that too. Anyway, then we put the links in the 30 day challenge forum, but promotion will go in full swing at the end of first thirty days, with our hub links on like 600 different sites!
wow, really? so what do you mean hub log though? you mean just create a hub saying that im entering this challenge or what?
Yeah, you can read sunforged or mine, but his is way better. In the log you decide what your goals are and write them out, then make boxes for each week of the challenge that's where you will put a link to every hub. That way when it comes time to Promote, the links for each hubber will be in one place.
Oh also, 6 to 10 categories, with 3 to 6 hubs in each. That way they can all be linked together, and create an SEO block, sort of.
You could do:
Like that and still be all movies, just different types of movies!
okay, i'll think about it then. sadly, i often get writer's block sometimes when writing about GOOD movies. therefore, i don't know if i can do this challenge or not. however, i'll definitely give it a try. thanks for the tip.
You don't have to get 30 done for it to work. Sunforged already said that's optimum, but the requirement is about setting goals and trying to meet them and doing the promotion together after. It can't lose!
nothing to be quite honest. i just won't be in forums nearly that often because i'm unemployed at the moment and need to devote most of my time to applying for jobs in person rather than online like i have been. thats why i won't be in forums that often. however, there's nothing wrong with forums though.
Do they have daily labor and workforce and temp agencies where you are?
yeah, they do. i applied for them online, but still nothing though. i know this one temp agency up the street that just opened that i haven't tried yet, so im hoping they'll give me something more to work with.
Yeah, I have an application to put in tomorrow, (today actually) that looks promising. I wrote a hub on this, but here's the way I have always found jobs.
Walk to all of the places you can reach on foot, in say half an hour, relaxed pace. Ask each one if they are hiring, 2 part times close by is as good as one full time. This way you are also saving on gas, as well as you can ask for a discount on car insurance. Plus, the fact you can easily walk it is a bonus for any employer, they don't have to worry that your car will break down.
Next frequent those places, just "stop in" once a week to see if they are hiring, and try to hit them when they are really busy by the end of the second week. Now they know you, and that you want the job, plus they are busy, and an extra pair of hands looks really good.
hmmm...good advice. thanks. i appreciate that. i'll definitely do that. thanks faybe.
NP, that's why the whole on line apps doesn't work. Lots of people apply, but they aren't "locals" Be a local. At one time I had 3 part time jobs, and people were coming to me at work, asking if I wanted a job! It was because they saw me really trying, and wanting to work. I got another part timer, that ended up going full time within three months, and I kept that for 20 years!
well i got to go since it's getting late. thanks again faybe for your time.

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?

I am willing to write the thirty hubs, but do not have the computer time to manage the challenge. Is there anyone that would take on this role?

I'm sure this comment will bring out all the smartass hubbers. And I'm sure you will all visit me with more smartass comments. Well, I'll just count how many of you are out in hubberland then I will go on with my day.

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are equally good quality articles. What am I doing wrong?!?!
