    HubPages is totaly messing with my head right now.

    I am trying to plan out my strategy for online earning for next year but my head is a total mess and I just keep ending up with lists and lists of hubs to write.

    Grrrr - any familiar faces wanna say hi and distract me from my insanity.

      Hi, Spacey Gracey!

      I have total confidence in you - you are so prolific and productive.  Just take a few deep breaths and enjoy a few minutes in the forum.  Then pick one of your topics and start chewing!  LOL

      You can do it and you'll do an outstanding job. You know you will.  big_smile

      You lucky sod!  I find it quite hard to think of new stuff to write - if I had more ideas, I'd have twice as many hubs LOL.

      I have a notebook full of lists too... then I feel so overwhelmed by the thought of actually completing all of them, haha I seem to do better when I do some quick research for keywords then write a hub instead of going through the notebook.

    Lists are great to start, I do this first and then I either do keyword research or I don't, I just write and if I don't feel that my hubpages are good enough I'll just save them unpublished and go back to them...I still have over 60 that need publishing no matter how hard I try and get on with publishing them and that really frustrates me.....Let the Hubpages madness end and let us just make more money!!!!!Money Money Money!!

    Sorry I didn't do a very good job of distracting you from the insanity! big_smile

    can you donate me some hub? I have a nice smile for you. tongue

      I'm thinking of donating titles - I have so many product hub titles that I think will do well, but I get so distracted finding lovely new toys to write about and dont spend enough time actually writing the hubs. I suppose 290 hubs in just under 9 months isn't bad going though.

        Hmm, I actually do this for plot ideas, but it's the same idea. Those ideas you keep getting? Get a pack of index cards (different colors if you want), and start sorting them in a recipe box by category or whatever you like.

        Let them sit and marinate for a bit while you finish up hubs from this year, figure out earnings and prepare for the holidays. Each time you get a new idea, stick it in your box. You can make each index card like its own hub. Have an idea to add on? Go right ahead. They can be mini outlines.

        That way, when everything else is done and out of the way, you can go through your recipes, pick a few gems and write them out.

    I love that idea nlthomas - and how funy that you were postinbg on my thread at the same time I was posting on yours smile

    A lovely girl who used to work for me (when I had a 'proper' job) had a real problem with focussing because of idea-overload so we made her a little post box for her desk and she had to write the idea on a post it note and put it in the box, and she was only allowed to open the box at certain times. - I should add she was a fully grown woman but this was a fun way to sort out her active imagination - maybe I should try it myself.

      I just saw your comment Spacey  wink I don't think it matters how old we are. With life growing around us, there's so much to think about and well, being female, my mind is in overdrive. My fiance always tells me to relax. Ummm ... I don't think females can. Our minds are way too active.

    Personally all I can seem to manage is doing backlinking and keywords.....
    Any other seo
    besides looking to see how I am in the search engines -which I haven't done- is Greek to me and I would explode
    so I don't and hope I do well by good writing, which is kinda what Relance does isn't it? And she does well?

    that's just me

    I know its contrary to the seasonal rush - but I'm laying back right now, haven't written a thing in weeks.  Right now I have the flu and my head is stuffed with nonsense and all I can do is sleep.  But I know I'll be rarin' to go and back in the saddle when its over.  Relax!  You only live this life once!  Enjoy yourself
