    I�m having trouble with niches, what to write and what to put on Hubpages.com. It�s not so much writer�s block, it�s the fact that I may have a lot to write about, but I can�t seem to settle on one topic.

    I�m thinking of starting other accounts on other sites, but I�m still deciding on which one to join first. That way I could write about other interests and not confine myself to a particular topic. In theory I could also make double or triple the adsense income with more exposure.

    Does anyone here belong to other sites like Hubpages, and if you do what do you recommend?

    Associated Content, Helium, Hubpages, Triond, Squidoo, Knol and Oondi seem to be mentioned a lot, and I have also checked out some hubs that deal with other sites too. Oondi let you keep 100% of you residual income, but it�s a beta, and for some reason that always makes me think twice.

      Hey Anti-Valentine,

      I'm not sure why you feel like you're confined to a certain topic as you can write about any topics that you like here on HubPages. What other topics would you like to start writing about? Maybe we can help you generate a few new ideas?

    I also don't understand why you feel you need to specialise. You can write about anything and everything on HubPages.  I write about a variety of things - I have a bunch of Hubs about relationships, another group on dance, a few on exercise and a couple on beauty. 

    If you're aiming to make some money by writing, then varying your topics is actually a good idea - you'll find out which subjects draw traffic and which don't.

    If your aim is income, then I wouldn't waste your time with Helium and Triond.  I've written an article on Helium which explains its limited potential.  I haven't tried Triond but know people who have - and by all accounts, it's worse than Helium. 

    I find you have to take recommendations for writing sites - or any online earning opportunity - with a pinch of salt.  Most of them have referral systems, whereby if you invite someone and they join, you get a commission (either upfront or ongoing).  People join the site, start writing, then realise they can make more money by conning others to join than they can by writing articles.

    HubPages has a referral system, too, but I do feel it represents a genuine income opportunity if you put some effort into it.

    I agree with Marisa, writing on a variety of topics shows your ability to write about anything.

    I've just read a lot of blogs, like Problogger, where people say that they like to write about a particular niche. Like my driving articles; they are my best so far, whereas the others that I've done aren't performing as well.

    I thought about doing different series on topics. Like I already have a driving series. I could have others.

    True, income would be nice, and the whole point of Adsense or in fact any affiliate program is to have more than one site, so you have multiple streams of income (Steve Pavlina).

    Writing on other sites could also gain you more exposure as I'm thinking of starting another account on some other site, in the future though.

    I've got a whole list of ideas that I've separated into niche topics with the aim of having multiple blogs and then eventually starting my own site that will act as a hub (no pun intended) with links to all my other sites and then I could have other stuff on my site like fiction and art and other things.

    I'm a schemer, you see. I like to pan things out.
