I haven't been connected here for very long. I connected to write about what's on my mind and over time not sure how those thoughts will evolve. I've looked at a few hubs and it looks like stuff is being marketed? Is that the primary purpose here? secondary? Enlighten me....Thanks. NB - guess i haven't surfed around enuf. figure some of you can answer in a few short sentences.
It's your choice. Alot of people write poetry or short stories, other people write to market, and some write about other stuff, politics, religion, philosophy, whatever works for you.
If you want to make money online, you're going to have to market.
But if you don't care if you make money or not, then it's all good. (Sex and violence excluded, of course.)
Either way, get titles and use paragraphs. Good stuff. Touched and disturbed. Never would have read it and met Meagan under those titles. Never would have clicked on it.
You write well.
that's okay - 4 now it's for me to get it out and if someone touches in, that's okay 2. don't know where my thoughts will go - but it is just 4 the purpose of writing my thoughts as they flow. i've no expectations. don't know how to work the site very well - will figure that out sometime....1 step at at time 4 me.... i'm sure there is editing to do, just not now..... like a diary........
Hubpages is primarily a dating site.. where writers can meet other writers in a comfortable and safe environment, get to know each other, and eventually meet for casual affairs.
there u r - figured i'd get an honest response from u..thanks for making my morning again
no problem,, figured lots of the folks around you in BC would be kinda down today based on the results of last night's hockey match
i'm sure i will hear a lot of comments today...and the flags hanging from cars may or may not be taken down today. guess that's why i didn't hear any news about Vancouver exploding with crazy antics from hoards of fans in their downtown core....
Firstly welcome to HP, secondly as long as you write good origial content it can be about whatever you like. (But no incouraging gambling or explicit content and stuff like that) Some people are very good at making money from their hubs (I'm not one of them) and there are other things like SEO and keywords you might want to think about. (again though I'm not an expert) I would recomend reading hubs about hubpages by other hubbers, as they have some really good advice. Other then that just enjoy writing I guess.
I try to write about everything: personal, poetry, facts, holidays, working on entertainment and fashion. I try to fit in amazon where appropriate. No luck with it though
HubPages is an excellent place to express oneself through writing. It removes the old obstacle of the long process of being "published" as in times of old. Though, the "published" world is still slow in acknowledging the credibility of actual writers on the internet. The allure of financial gain through writing on the internet is real and valid. As long as it's creative there is nothing wrong with marketing a product here. It actually opens up new areas of writing as I've come to learn recently.
However, it is therapeutic in a way. If you want an enema or a good dose of laxative just hang around the forums a while and express a few odd views. You'll get a cleansing like you won't believe. Let's just say that after seven months on HubPages I am proud to proclaim that I am squeaky clean!
Welcome to HubPages I would say, write about what you know best and passionate about. Will be easier and natural. HP provides the platform and is up to the author how they want to use it as long as it isnt against the TOS. Visit other authors and see how they write, lay out their writing, tags used, etc. You will find your own voice and subjects too. most of all, as said in another forum, have fun.

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...

I am told that people write for different reasons. Here are the major reasons I figured out.1. They write because they enjoy it. In that case, if you are not writing for money, please write in your journal. Obviously,...

What's the apprenticeship program like?I've just applied for it, and am now waiting for the approval process that apparently takes 4-6 weeks.

I've noticed, as I was browsing over a lot of the newest "Hubbers" that most of them started off strong, with this idealistic vision of how, what, when they were going to write, and it was going to be Amazing;...

Hello, hubpages! I'm new, and I've completed and published my first hub (though it still does not seem to be indexed on the site), that I've written in exploration of the Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire. ...
