There have been a number of hubs that touched me so much that I was moved to tears. It is not something that often happens and I am not a person to cry at the drop of a hat. The story has got to be pretty special to make me cry.
Terry.Hirneisen wrote a very special story about his dog General that made me cry.
Please leave a link to a hub that made you cry.
Hubber is: Eiddwen
and this is the hub:
Can't say I have read any hubs that have made me cry although in the early days before I got some much needed help, I used to re-read my hubs and really felt like crying.lol
What do you mean when you say "much needed help"? Did you check into rehab?
No I sought out helpful advice from other hubbers, it takes time to get things right, from where you start to earn some money which was my main reason for writing.
My motivation has always been good, except for the past couple of months since Panda. But I have still been doing some work towards future projects.
Hi Brian I hope you were not offended by my flippant remark I was just joking.
Though I did initially join HubPages with the idea to promote my private practice that is definitely not my prime motivation any more. I don't see anything wrong with trying to make money as a writer but I just prefer to write what I want when I want without worrying about keywords, seo etc. I love reading hubs about things that interest me and I have learned a lot from the feedback I have received from the people who read my stuff.
no offense taken, just clarifying my position.
Enjoying your writing is very important, I'm sure you will be back before long. Sometimes having a break is the best thing to do. You can do other stuff and recharge your batteries and have a fresh approach.
One idea that I have is to keep a note pad close to me at all times and jog anything down that you find amusing or interesting or want to find out more about. Look back at the end of the week and see if there's a potential hub there to write about.
Good luck to you.
I haven't stopped writing I am just not motivated by money to do so.
The notepad idea is a good one but I usually ask my dream before going to sleep or wait for inspiration. I usually get the urge to write once or twice a week and I am happy with that.
This one did because I can relate.
I wasn't expecting this but I am glad you pointed me in this direction. I have left a comment on her hub. Thank you Cardisa you too are very brave for sending me this link. .
thank you so so much you both validate that I am okay
As a result of reading your story I will definitely be reading more of your hubs. Thank you for sharing your very personal story. My wife has just read it and she too will be responding later.
I haven't taken a break I am still writing but not motivated by making money. I wait till I receive inspiration and that usually happens once or twice a week and I wake up with what I want to write. The pad idea sounds good too but please have a go at asking your dream to tell you what to write about before you go to sleep at night and see what you wake up with in the morning. let me know what happens.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...
