It seems a bit much, or maybe I am insensitive. The competition is fierce. I go to the CDC site if I need accurate information. Why are so many of us writing about the virus?
Because it's pretty much all most people can think about these days sadly.
I imagine they are doing so to raise their views. I wouldn't write about it, because I don't want to give out any incorrect information, I'll leave something so important to the experts.
I hear all i want on the news. when i write about something i reaaly concentrate on it. it would depress me to concentrate that much on coronavirus.
I'm with Kenna and Rachelle. What could I possibly add of value to the blanket coverage? Nothing.
This morning I got a bit snippy with someone who had posted an offering (it could not by any stretch be called an article) under a title that referenced the "Coronary Virus." The "writer" seems to have vanished.
Leave it to the scientists who know what they are talking about.
I feel overwhelmed by the amount of information that is broadcast every day by experts - virologists, immunologists, doctors, politicians, current affairs programmes. It’s depressing and I have severely restricted my viewing/reading on the subject. Why on earth would anyone want to read anything over and above what the experts say? I’m spending my time tending my garden.
It's the talk of the time. So everyone wants to have an input on what is going on. I'm like @Glenis Rix, focusing on my garden. I am trusting God that this too shall pass. I choose not to overload my head with Covid-19. I just sanitize and protect myself and others if I have to go to the grocery. Staying at home is the best thing to do, and hubbing.
It's the talk on social media and general media. In my town, we don't talk about we go about doing what we have to do and go home. I agree with Glenis. I am tired of it and do something else besides reading about or talking about it. I'd never write about it.
I'm not and I don't intend to, as I have nothing new to add to the subject. I'm plodding on writing travel articles in the hope that the industry will one day recover.
I usually take in quite a lot of news during the day, but I have limited it recently, as there's only so much I can process about COVID-19. I prefer to spend the time phoning friends and maintaining contact with others.
I wrote about a study published in March that said deep breathing and breathing exercises could help increase lung capacity and help fight the coronavirus. I thought it was important. I had not seen any other articles with this information. I will write about helpful things and positive things.
I don't write about any subject where I am in competition with the main stream media. To do so is just wasting one's time.
But, what if you did a better job at writing about than others?
I personally don't intend to write about COVID-19. I joined HubPages strictly to write about my passions and interests and want to keep it that way. I generally stay away from anything that could spark a heated political debate, etc. because I am just not into that.
Because it is the main issue of the period.everone must know about it
I can't speak for the reasons why so many have written on this subject.
My initial article was written in humor, not to make light of a very serious matter, but to discourage runs on toilet paper (no pun intended) and to point out knuckleheads who never seem to be thinking about others.
The other article came out of a frustration with a political party and a media which undermines this President every step of the way. They can't let up for a single second, as they contribute absolutely nothing to putting this thing to bed, so that we may go on living as free men and women.
I don't claim to be an expert at anything, I write when I am moved to write.
All the articles I've seen seem to suggest that their authors are merely intent on jumping on a bandwagon and hoping to make some money out of it. None are qualified to give out such information. Hopefully, HP is weeding them out as soon as they are published.
The same reason anyone writes about anything, because we can, will, and want to write about whatever we see relevant regardless of what others think. Many of us have been forced into rough times due to these serious events, and many use writing to cope with their newfound situations.
I think at this point if it were a real issue, rather than something to whine about on the forums, HubPages would actually do something about the influx. I'm learning quite quickly that HubPages values most of its writers, even those who seem bitter, unskilled, and/or regressive.
Everyone should continue writing what they wish to write, if not for the love of writing, then just because you had the urge to write it!

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool". 2. Make a hub based on that topic that is somewhat broad concerning that...

How do you research for your hubs?Do you use any websites? or Do you go to a library? I wonder how do I do proper research before I start writing my hubs! The truth being said,"i want to avoid writing fluff and for that to occur, I need to do more quality research". I currently have...

In all the time I've been writing on the web (first started on Amazon in 2004), I've never been any good at selling products on the web. I don't know why that is. I know people who make a packet at promoting products on the web. And I know there are people who make a good amount on HP even though...

Personally when i write i use a little of both things i have been through in the past as well as thoughts that pass through my mind. I find that this makes for an interesting and intense novel for readers; However lately i've been hearing that the key to a fantastic novel is only writing about the...
