    I know I write about things that are interesting to me, also because it's something I can get into. How do you chose what to write about? Because it's popular, or because you like it?

    I write about what interests me. I find that when I write this way, I am more passionate about my writing and it turns out so much better.

    I think it's good to do both. Write about what you like to make you happy and then write about what other's like to get views. I'm sure what interests you will interest some other people too though.

    I also write about my passions and interests. It is much easier to write.

    Chances are very good that there are lots of other people who shares this passion and will read my hubs.

    I confess that yes I write what 'interests' me... Tho keeping in mind that I am relating to others that are 'like minded.'

    I write what interests me, and I'm fortunately scatter brained which allows for a lot of  For example, I'm currently working on a mystery, a non-fiction special-ops piece, a non-fiction set battle piece, a book review, and latin

    I focus on where my interests and what others demand intersect. It's important that my work be well-received because I do have to make money at this, my family doesn't eat if I don't, but if it's not something I'm genuinely interested in then I can't do a good enough job for it to be well-received.

    I write about what I like, my passions and other interests, but I make it relatable so others will be interested as well!

    I have written for all those reasons. I write for my wife for her Birthday and for Christmas. I write with my interests in mind, such as from a certain perspective like Historical or Afterlife. I use this alot to set the mood based on who or what I am writing a specific piece for.

    I write about things that interest me.  However, I think it is wiser to write about stuff that people are searching the web for.  There are a couple different ways a hubber can find this information.  Two ways I know of are Google Trends and Google Adwords.

    I write about things I love. That's the easiest way to avoid writers block. You have to love everything you do, even if you have to force it lol.

    I have been writing about things I am familiar with personally, though all the while I am researching what readers out there are looking for as far as interests and information.  But since I am not on here to get rich, writing for enjoyment I guess would be writing about my interests and hoping others will be interested, too.
