Evergreen Material

The "evergreen", is just what it says, it is material that is relevant from week to week. This would mean that it is not a hub that just tells about, decorating for Christmas, for instance. It would be something like a hub that has tips for cleaning. The idea is just like a traffic light, the green means to go ahead and go through the intersection. Green material means this could be a topic that is read throughout the year.

It is advised to have as many "green" hubs as possible. This will keep the traffic flowing to your site. If you are writing the best stores to shop at in 2012 chances are it will not receive many reads in 2013, 2014, 2015 etc.

Don't get me wrong, seasonal hubs have their place as well but, the articles that create the most visits to the site are the ones that get more reads throughout the year.

If you have tips or ideas please share them with me by leaving comments in the capsule at the bottom of this article.

Successful Writing Tips

Proper Spelling and Punctuation

The goal of writing hubs is to get increased traffic to your site. The longer the guest is on your hub, the more money you have the potential of making. This just makes sense because, the longer they stay on your hub, they have a chance to view eBay's and Amazon's adds on the hub itself.

The only way that a person is going to stay on your hub is if you look interesting and if your article is an intelligent read for them.

Spelling is a must as well as punctuation. Some of the words that can give writers trouble are words in our English language that sound the same but, are spelled different and mean different things. Some examples are: their or there, capitol or capital, wonder or wander.

Punctuation to me, says that you care enough about your hub to look over your work before you hit the word publish. If you do catch something that needs to be fixed, you can always come back and edit them again.

Tips At Your Fingertips

When you write articles online how you write you hub is as important as what you have to say. Do not be afraid to ask questions or look up information on the web.

State The Facts

There are some topics that you can write about that you will not have to look up any of the facts. On the other hand looking up facts to make sure the reader gets all the correct information sometimes occurs.

Its important to try and find information that is new or hard to locate. Do not just copy information from Wikipedia as this is readily available for everyone and you want to stand out from the rest.

Keep opinions and facts separate and make sure it's clear which of the two you are talking about at all times.

Show Emotion and Enthusiasm

The idea is to attract readers. The longer they are on your page, the more that they will read and that will be more money in your pocket. Sometimes you can just feel a writer's enthusiasm in their work. Never write just for money or to get followers to your work. Have a passion for what your gonna type about and it will show in the effort put into the hub or blog.

When writing it's important to remember that your trying to get a point across and illustrate an event or situation to an audience. You want the article to stand out or even jump out at the reader sometimes and in some cases the idea is to bring that fear, love or sadness into the emotions of the reader. Bring the reader into the story and chances are they will read the whole thing instead of backing out of the article and reading something else.

Use Pictures, Videos, ETC.

Any online article or blog that you write should be as detailed and original as possible but also utilize any tool that is available to you such as capsules that allow posting videos or pictures.

Anything that you can do to make your article top notch should be done. Pictures and words are the main thing that attract and keep readers so make sure to have a quality and lengthy article as well as several relevant pictures. Go a step further and put graphs or tables in stories that it would fit nicely in. Make sure anything added to your articles have something in common with what you are writing.

Writer's Block

Do you ever have what is called writer's block? You have been sitting there looking at the screen for the past 20 minutes before you think of something else to write? You are lucky if it was that long. If I see that I can't think of a topic right away or if I get held up on something, then, I will completely get out of that hub and work on another one or another text capsule even can sometimes "unblock" the temporary writer's block.

Stress and loud noises will definitely trigger writer's block. Make sure to get in a secluded and quite area before starting a new subject. And as odd as this sounds make sure that your writing on a full stomach. If your stomach is growling every ten minutes you will become distracted and the work will suffer as a result. Relax, stay calm and submerge yourself into your thoughts and you will be okay.

      Great tips! It's definitely important to use as many visual mediums as needed, such as pictures and videos, to complement the writing. Like you wrote, spelling and grammar are very important because poor spelling/grammar will distract the reader and decrease the writer's credibility.
