I think for me it would be consistency. If you stop writing for a while, it gets hard to get going again. I'm amazed by some of the goals people set for themselves... 30 or more hubs a month! Other hubbers are a source of inspiration and motivation for sure!
It's taught me that content matters. People want to hear what you have to say if it has meaning.
To just write what I feel and give it a go! Good lesson. .
That not everything I write has to be meticulously researched, perfectly cited, and full of academic vocabulary. All the writing I've done in the past has been for professors. HubPages has taught me to write for the people.
That providing valuable information to help people is the key, not just writing for the sake of trying to sell something.
It has taught me not to check things twice but six times before I publish. Not just for spelling and grammar but for correct content. But the most important thing it has taught me is to have fun.
The HubPages platform is extremely interactive, which is one of its best features. I enjoy and value the communicative style of this community, it is inspiring in and of itself.
HPs has taught me to take a risk and stay true to what I want to write about. At first, it was hard not to get caught up in the hype to write for ads in order to make money. While this can be a benefit of writing, it should not be the focus. If a person writes about what they are passionate about, it will show and draw people who are interested in what they have to say. This kind of writing is what is sustainable because each person will continue to learn about what they're interested in and someone out there is also interested in reading about what is new in that area. So, I've learned to stay true to my heart in writing.
I think HubPages taught has taught me and is still teaching me Hey I Can Write!
