Writing a New Article

Updated on October 12, 2017

Writing Something New

Writing new articles (known as Hubs on HubPages) is the way to make progress, according to the advice given in the very informative Learning Center. I've been wanting to start something new for some time now but activities surrounding Christmas, have kept me from doing so. Perhaps you are new to this site and need a few tips on the writing process: you will find some in this hub.

Now I'm writing about writing a hub; I have a few ideas for new ones but they require more thought and some of them need more research on the subject matter.

How to Get Started Writing

Starting the writing or creation of a new hub can sometimes take time to accomplish. The important thing is to start writing and continue until you feel satisfied with what you have done.

Include images in your hubs but remember to properly cite them, there is information about this in the Learning Center.

Do some research on your article but don't copy as this is not allowed.

Putting off writing a new article isn't something we need to do, it's best to keep on writing new hubs, especially on topics that interest us.

I want to write good quality hubs, ones with genuine content. This is a good place of reference to start, to aim for quality in your writings where content is important.

Keep writing even if you feel as if your'e not getting anywhere and not earning anything, persistence pays off. It can take time to generate earnings.

Engage with other hubbers by reading their work and making comments. Reply to comments you receive from other hubbers unless they are slanderous, ignore those ones.

Someone browsing the internet might buy a product you have advertised using the Amazon capsules.

Using the Google Adwords keyword research tool in Google, contributes to Search Engine Optimization. From what I've read one needs to use phrases that show a high search volume but are low in competition.

I encourage beginners to write for the love of writing, to make it something you enjoy doing.

Note: I use the British UK spelling format.

Writing As a Form of Income

Write stories, poems, articles; whatever you fancy in Hubpages and make money through the different earning programmes found in my earnings. You can also include your novel by making separate hubs that make up your entire novel.

      I agree with you that writing a new lens on Squidoo can be challenging but also inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

      Nice. I'm still learning all the tricks. (And I like British spelling, especially "aluminium"!)

      Good reminder here about "re-tweaking" and keeping your lens fresh. Especially pertinent right now after the filters!
