Going to take this time and see if I can push my own site somewhere and see what I can accomplish with my pencils and paper and really see what happens when I start to draw more of the things that I set out to orginally do back when I came online back in 2004.
Going to keep my decent hubs here and delete what's just useless and transfer it elsewhere and just test what happens with that transferred content.
I wish all the hubbers that I have known well as there are some great people and excellent writers here that I admire very much. And Hubpages is still a great place to write, in fact one of the best places I have written at.....I will be back in a year or so when I've recharged my tired batteries.
Now first things first I'm off to bed....Zzzzzzzzzz!
Take what you've started here and take it offline.
Can you teach drawing to people in a class environment?
I've been training people: Word, Excel, emailing and the Internet at a Registered Training Organisation. And have thrown my hat into the ring to do some short courses on how businesses can use Facebook at a Business Enterprise Centre.
We often take our interests and passions and develop them online. But consider taking what you've learned with the organisation and presentation of the information and take it back offline and teach people the old fashioned way, face to face.
drawfantasyart.com is my new site and is self explanatory and I also have an article/blog directory style site onepagearticles.com these are my main focus for now, especially my art site and drawing offline....cheers now!
I guess you're now a YouTube Partner as well. Goodluck! You'll be missing HubPages the most anyway. Even if HubPages doesn't earn a cent for me, which will never happen. I enjoy hubbing and the kind of continued and targeted traffic I do recieve on my work here since over 3yrs now till 2morow. I'm occupying tight for a greater future than today. Keep in touch bro, you're one of us.
Beautiful site. I recommend that you unpublish hubs now, before moving them, to kind of give you lesser of a duplicate content penalty on your blog/site. You will have that penalty until Google de-indexes what you've got here on HubPages, so removing it now will perhaps aid in the de-indexing.
Don't get down if you don't get traffic to your blog right away, it'll happen. You know the ropes! You're quite a writer and have obviously contributed a lot. If you need ANY help setting up your blog/site for SEO, I would be glad to give you any advice.
Best of luck! I hope you do really well! Keep us posted!
Cheers everyone! Will still pop into the forums any chance I get, just to see what's going on!
...@Empress I think it's 48 hours or something, but I'm not bothered about de-indexing my old hub content at the moment, the key is to just fill up my article directory with some content and then spruce things up a bit later with SEO and all that jazz!
sounds like a good plan, we look forward to hearing of your continued success, maybe you put a link to your teaching on you tube on your profile, if not how about a link, would love to check out your classes on line.
After the recent change made by Google, I'm feeling discouraged (not looking for any sympathy, mind you). My traffic is pretty much dead (I don't mean to complain because I know a good majority have been having trouble...
Hello everyone. I just wanted to mention that I will be taking a break from HubPages for a while. I have started grad school and even though this is the first week, I am starting to get overwhelmed. So I am hoping...
Do you think HubPages would warn us in advance if they shut the site down?I suspect that, sometimes at least, many of us write directly onto the page at HubPages, without having first written offline and saving written...
A Bit over the generated requests from hubpages re the not meeting standards - I had three /four videos on this hub and was told that some or one (who knows which ones) had poor pixels or some such - so to fix it i took...
With the event of me approaching 1 million hub views in a few days or so, this gives me the chance to reflect back and see what I did to increase my traffic and revenues through Hubpages.What really started the ball...
