Hi everyone I'm new here and I really can't decide on a Topic from the ones available.
Anyone know if it's possible to create a Topic? If so, how would one do that?
Thanks much in advance!
You cannot. You could request it on the forum, but don't hold your breath.
Never go out your comfort zone or what you don't know about, it will reflect in your writing. Read a lot and write down ideas as they come to you, then take it from there, research is key!
Welcome to Hubpages!
Choosing a hub's topic can be difficult, however, there should be more than enough categories for you to choose from. The problem is choice, which usually is always the case in anything you do.
It might be helpful if you started out things you've experience and/or learned. You should always be upfront and honest with your readership.
If you're trying to write sales hubs, then I would suggest doing a lot more reading before attempting to do so.
Maybe you would be best to read the FAQ's page and visit the Learning Center, designed specifically to help out new hubbers.
Good luck finding a topic. I do hope you enjoy your time here.
In this instance, write about what you know, and combine it with what you think everybody else wants to know.
The important thing on the web is to write things that other people search for. Nobody is going to tell you that, by the way. We're all stretching our imaginations to do that.
Thanks much for your responses!
I am most passionate about airplanes, flying airplanes, teaching people to fly, and the aviation industry in general, but the closest Topic comes under "Sports and Recreation/Individual and Team Sports/Flying Sports."
I suppose that's close but not really...
And you've got company...

And Google AdSense doesn't care about "exact matches" in this regard.
I'm fairly new here too. It never occurred to me to start by choosing a topic from the list. I write an article or a story first, and then find the topic that seems the best fit. There are so many. I must say though, just reading through the Reading and Books topics is enough to inspire me! Welcome and good luck!
I'm another one who writes first and figures out the category later. I just looked at the categories, with flying in mind. I suppose it would depend on the angle your Hub had on flying; but besides the one you mentioned above, I'm wondering if the travel/transportation/plane travel categories/subcategories might work. Maybe either that recreation one or the "plane travel" one, depending on how you approach the Hub?
If that's what you have a passion for) and since it seems you probably know something about it), you probably have a good chance of doing well with it.
You could try to request a new category from hubpages if you really wanted to. I do usually go with writing the article first and then fitting it in where ever seems like the best place at time.x
Thanks once again for all your helpful replies!
After thinking about it more I realized that I can indeed write about all those things I mentioned plus many more so I guess each Hub can have its own Topic.
And yes it's a good idea to write first, then fit it into a Topic so thank you! I've actually used both techniques on my blog.
Appreciate all the feedback... seems like this is a very welcoming community!

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?
