I erased my second hub.

    In haste I erased my second hub I had written. I became discouraged and wasn't sure of what mistakes I needed to correct. Does anyone have advice on how I can regain the confidence to rewrite and publish it again?

          Kimberlynn, what types of hubs do you plan on writing?  Once you have determined what type of writing you want to do, look for similar hubs that are of a good quality and try to determine why they have been successful.

          well, do nothing, just publish it and place the link here and let us see that first.

      Just take more of a content approach.  Often Hubpages (and viewers) don't like too many ads, so there are stops in place so that there aren't too many.  Hubpages will make sure there is enough content to justify the ads, as well as making sure that you can only link to the same thing twice.

      If you are having problems organizing the content, try this simple formula:
      Intro - What will I cover in my article?
      Body - A paragraph or two covering the main points brought up by the intro
      Conclusion - A rephrasing of the intro, but designed to sum up what has been discussed in the body

      Don't get upset, I've also been frustrated away from this site, but it is stick-to-it-ness that is rewarded. Good luck!

      Leave it be. Write something else, then work on it again, publish, look at the responce and may be ask other hubbers, some of us will gladly give you their opinion, don't be discouraged.

      Here is one technique that is viable in some instances:

      1.    Tell them what you are going to tell them (the intro).

      2.    Then tell them (the body).

      3.    Tell them what you have told them (the conclusion/summary).

        Paradigm, that's simple but exactly right.

        For Topic Ideas use the adword keyword tool.  After using just about everything I still use that 95% of the time.

        For onpage SEO use your Title for your keywords and then you First Major heading as your main keyword... third heading as secondary keyword, fourth heading etc... spread it around and then in your Conclusion/summary, use all of your main keywords again... or something like that smile

        Beyond just putting the title in, HP has made it very convenient to add different paragraph headings as well.  If you can, then use your keywords in those as well.  In the end, be careful not to overdo it.  Make sure you don't sacrifice quality for SEO.

      I thank everyone for the supportive advice! I am going to rewrite this and keep trying. One of my goal's in writing is to take the mundane and make it into something beautiful.
