    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.

    Yes that is great advice....I've always wanted to do something like teaching in fact I pretty much do it on my youtube channel but offline would be cool.

    Cheers everyone!

    Good luck Waynet!  I've been working primarily on my own sites with Hubpages as a sideline for a year or so, so the Panda update hasn't really changed much. I hope you find the right mix for you.

          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. smile

          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!

            EmpressFelicityposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            How long does the de-indexing take on average?

            Getting back to the OP: Wayne, just 'cos you're not publishing any new hubs it doesn't mean to say you can't occasionally come to the forums and say hello!

  19. waynet profile image72
    waynetposted 7 years ago

    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!

    I like to go against the grain sometimes!

      Thanks Wayne.  I have a few hubs that could possibly do with rehoming.

    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.

    Best of luck, Wayne - it sounds like you are on the cusp of something big. You could be the most influential figure to come out of Hull since The Housemartins, Dean Windass and...er...John Prescott big_smile

      If I put the same amount of effort into my own sites as I've done here then I should do well, especially with all the wonderful things I have planned!
