Making a come back virtually as a Writer

Updated on February 13, 2013

Writing today takes a differing course up into the clouds

Look at the bright side

If you feel like you have lost the game digitally when it comes to earning income, well think again folks you can and will be able to recover from any offsets or losses experienced to that of your content taking a huge decline. This article will go into great detail as to how a writer online can and will survive any sort of virtual decline in terms of web statistics and more harsh conditions of cyber work issues.

After working online for close to 2 years, and doing it on a level that's far beyond the average everyday worker, what tends to happen to us online writers is quite the opposite of writers block. We all tend to have problems dealing with our health these days, and definitely while being idled for so many hours on end, if anything for us writers its that of our eyes that has issues for sure. This is somewhat an issue that needs to be addressed and when it comes to having to learn how to balance oneself, while performing such a duty as writing for 12+ hours or more daily.

The end result though for those who actually manage to find the ways, and means of attaining such a life balance, or reset will also tend to go through a procession of what I call word power evolution.

This happens when you decide that taking a break from writing, is far more important then that of feeling you need to waste your health away by fighting the down trends of web traffic stats. In all actuality what occurred to this very author of this article is such a thing. I decided to take a 3 months break from it all, left the scene and shifted gears a great deal to go back into the web design arena and side of the Internet. Taking such a much needed re-assessment of things helped to provide a differing take and overall new approach to writing online.

Mental Note: This works wonders for new writers who have recently established themselves as being both respectable, and topnotch in their respective levels of producing high volumes of good quality content.

Vacations and breaks from writing helps a great deal

Doing such a thing as taking a long break or vacations is the key to making a massive online come back, and when I say massive I mean huge. This is not only true, it works wonders for your overall health of your eyes. This technique shall help to boost your online potential for being able to think clearly without any reservations or thoughts of expecting for your earning to go anywhere else but up. (Since taking any break will also allow your web potential to go down naturally and besides the down swings of web stats by search engines that's sure to come.)

Using a various array of differing creative writing strategies can also help any author to be able to reach a much higher plateau in their ability to churn out more and more top quality article.

Your writers voice (Hot article about the topic) is very important in this newly found pattern of taking long term breaks, but keep in mind that once you come off of such a long term break of 3 months or so, you will have to regain a great deal of ground when it comes to all the communications you may have not been making with your followers, and those whom were giving your web locations most of its views.

Experimentation and letting it all go

This was all determined out of pure experimentation here on the hubpages writers network, where a great deal of consistent web traffic must be established first, in order for any or all of these techniques of online recovery for a writer can and will take effect. This is also something that will work for those who have life issues dealing with family, or work issues that can or may prevent them from being able to keep a consistent writing effort all year round.

So, by playing around with things in terms of your writing style, your timing of how and when you choose to write. Your overall consistency of taking short term and long terms breaks works wonders over time, and as you learn to manage your time better.

You will begin to notice that your overall objectives to earning more and more money as a commercial writer as well can take a leap of faith, because when you begin to become more grounded as a individual who knows more about balance online. Then your articles will also begin to show it as well with higher and higher quality and care. As they say quality over quantity, and plus those who are reading our articles being written also are seeking for a well balanced message as well.

The letting it all go strategy:

This is a technique that was made possible as a writer becomes a free mind online. We aren't really bounded to limitations as writers today besides for the fact of things like keyword stuffing being frowned upon, and if we try to steer people to our web locations using links. However, when it comes to creative writing, as long as we stay within the guidelines and rulings online as well as within the terms of use of any writing network we publish content onto, everything we write can help us earn today.

You must not get tied up into confined, or conformed ways of thinking though, you need to let it all go, meaning try to break the mold of what you once conceived as the only mode of writing for yourself. Try to have fun, get the best out of being a creative writer by maybe playing on words a bit, while still remaining within the confines of good grammar.

Getting started for those looking to join hubpages

#1 reason for hubbers

As for being a hubpages writer today, this network is truly powerful at helping us writers get noticed online.

This is mainly due to Hubpages being one of the top 50 major websites on the planet today, that receives high volumes of web traffic in the millions per month, and since us online authors produce a great deal of relevant web content or have in the past.

This is another reason why leaving such a network would be disastrous for anyone who's looking to earn some level of monetary rewards for their writing efforts.

Why giving up isn't an option

I've noticed since becoming a dedicated hubber that during the worst of times on the Internet for us authors, many online writers seem to simply throw in the towel and call it quits, and for the obvious reasons of feeling they're not earning much anymore. Well like they say one mans trash is another mans treasure, and so this is definitively the key reason why if your truly looking to earn money online, you should never give up when the going gets tough.

I say this because, if 100,000+ members of any writing community simply decide to up and leave their monetized web locations due to feeling they cannot deal with the offsets of losing their web traffic. Then it also presents a huge opportunity for others whom are looking to earn an income online to replace their potentials, and to do even better then they once have. This is the nature of the online beast per say, its inevitable for such a change to take place, and definitely in dealing with Google and their updates.

The wisest thing for any commercial writer to do during these down trends is reassess their approach to how they implement their marketing strategies, how you decide to utilize your SEO knowledge, and place your keywords into action onto the screen will make all the difference today. This will ensure that your making attempts to adjust, and to adapt to the growing demands for higher quality on the ever evolving Internet Super Highway, and it also takes a deeper look into the digital craftsmanship of your articles that have already been published.

Be wise and stay on top of your out of date articles if they aren't in season, or need any editing, and with constant attention to detail your earnings shall pick back up in no time. Good luck!

      Hey Cloud. If I could send you a small message instead of posting this I would, but anyway: Your sidebar that is titled "Many online writers need a Facebook vacation as well, here's an article on it" ends with the word "but" then nothing else. It looks like you removed a good chunk of text. Head's up. Otherwise: Cool article.

      @always exploring, you got that right it is terribly hard to play the keep up game here with all of your followers once you decide to go on vacation, and especially that of a long term one, but where there is true loyalty they shall return to you after getting back for sure.

      I always find good advice and tips in your articles. So glad you've taken the time to share with us. Like Gypsy said, writing takes a lot of time. The brain can feel like it's on overload, but I appreciate it because this is the first time I've tried to devote any extended time to writing. Thanks for reminding us to take breaks. Take care.

      Thanks for this great and uplifting hub. Writing takes time and thought and yes, one must never give up because like fine wine it mellows with time. Breaks are needed to build up new energies and new thoughts for more intense writing ahead. Passing this on.

      @Faith Reaper, thank you my dear I definitely missed everyone I as in contact with daily here and through my profile. Like I told tillsontitan, I been working long and hard on a new scope for us online creative writers and poets. It's definitely been well worth the time of investment as well, and I'm so glad I decided to take the much needed break.

      I will work consistently you maintain balance, and I will no-longer strain as I once done online, for I feel comfortable now with all that I have placed into action, but I will remain resilient for sure with is all.

      Thanks for the kind words of encouragement, for sharing with me Faith as you've done so consistently in the past and also for welcoming me and my presence back into the community once again.

      @tillsontitan, Thank you so much for the welcome back and for sharing with me. I missed writing on this profile and reading many people hubs as I once had been doing.

      I actually been working on a new poetry community of my own and for our good poetic friends, and its expansion across multiple networks, so yup its been a fun time indeed to do something different for a change and in keeping in the good spirits of the online community.

      It is good to take a short break or vacation for sure, but as you say, taking a long-term break one will have to do some rebuilding of sorts. Glad to see you back with your insightful writing as always. I know you were not just doing nothing, but constantly working hard in other areas. However, we did miss you here.

      Voted up +++ and sharing.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      We are all glad to see you back. You were missed, there was a void where your writing was. You seem very refreshed and full of good ideas and wise words for all of us.

      Voted up, useful, and interesting.

      @mperrottet, yes indeed it feels good to be fully refreshed and ready to write with my best foot forward without any worries at all. I began this journey without any worries and so it is essential for us writers to remain focused as such today, or we may lose sight of the big picture for sure.

      Thanks for the cool comment and words of encouragement, I am happy to be able to write up a storm as I use to do here, and I have loads of goodies on the way for sure. Restoring ones faith is no joke for sure, and especially when its well planned out with good timing.

      I think you're right that you can really make a come back after taking some time off. You certainly deserved a break after putting so much energy into your work. So glad you're back, and I hope your new efforts bring you lots of success.

      Thanks @carol7777 for sharing and all, yup I had to shift things around a bit, but I didn't go anywhere. I'm definitely in it to win it for the long haul for sure online and no matter what as long as I'm alive and well that is and with the good blessings of god.

      Quite a hub and filled with some great ideas and truths. As you remember I took a month off and came back writing better. My views are still way down, but increase monthly. So I am satisfied with that. I write one or two hubs a week, but no more or I ignore other fun things in life. But you wrote it well as you always do and you are such a vital member of the hub group. Thanks for this..I am voting++sharing, pinning and tweeting and anything else I can think of.
