    Why are most writers in the Education and Science Featured Pages Dormant or Inactive?

    I ave been looking at most profiles of writers in the Education and Science section. Apparently, most are either dormant (take too long to post new articles) or they are just inactive and seem to have disappeared from HP. Why is this the case?

    There are probably various reasons. Either they joined HP to earn money and their subject matter was not getting the number of views they had hoped for or possibly in the case of science the serious people are too busy doing research.
    Personally speaking I tend to focus on "gender relations" topic. I didn't join HP to earn money but rather to continue to hone my writing and blogging skills. If you are a science or education writer maybe you can put some interest in those topics.
    Vanika Knowles the world has been waiting for you! Best of luck!

    I know of at least two that are frustrated because they cannot state the correct anatomical parts of the human body even in a medical or scientific manner. Some of these writers aren't making money, getting views, etc. It's also possible that they may simply be busy and don't have the time to write in the manner they wish. I enjoy reading about a variety of Science topics but I also have learned that many people simply don't care about education and Science sad

    Education and science articles might get a lot of views, but the ads are low-paying, so writers who focus on these topics aren't making a lot of money.   A lot of those writers probably moved on to more profitable activities or started focusing on high-paying topics.
    There are still a few science and math writers who are currently active:

    http://calculus-geometry.hubpages.com/
    http://kthix10.hubpages.com/
    http://catman3000.hubpages.com/

    If you are looking for the most prolific and currently publishing writers, check the subtopic headings in the education and science section instead of the main category.

    I have written several articles on chemistry and believe me it takes lots of energy and time to come with just a single comprehensive article on chemistry. probably that is why most will seem dormant. The traffic is also a let down for mist who eventually decide to quit the whole process. However, the great thing about education and science articles is that their content is usually ever relevant.
    If you decide to write education and science topics then you might as well extend your tentacles to other fields such as health, entertainment and so on.
    All the best in your HubPages Quest

      I agree with you Cuttler. Your hubs such as "Chemistry: The Study Of Matter" are truly evergreen and useful.
