Where do you get the majority of your inspiration for your hubs?
Other hubs, personal experience, family, TV, the internet, etc?
I usually write about places that I have visited before, or the interview I had done with somebody. Sometimes I also write about things that I am interested in (ie movies, animations, etc.)
I get a lot of inspiration from reading other Hubs. The majority of my inspiration comes from everyday conversations I have with people. We'll be talking about something, and a little lightbulb comes on and I think, now that's a great idea for a Hub article!
Passionate and positive people, beautiful comments and feedback from my fellow hubbers, mother nature and my wonderful dog! That's where I get the most of my inspiration from.
One of the best sources, for me at any rate, is other hubs. Reading through the work of other writers very often sets of a spark of an idea. I also browse the internet and often an article or book etc. will set off ideas. I've also very often just flicked through the daily newspaper and a few of the articles have given great ideas for developing articles.
In addition I also draw on my experience as a nurse and I also use my knowledge of subjects that I have studied and enjoy to write articles.
Usually it's personal experience...where did I travel? what information did I look up myself to solve an issue I was having? what's going on in my life and with may family? But sometimes I get ideas from reading something in a magazine, newspaper, Online, or on Hubpages.
When I joined HubPages, it was an escape....an outlet......a way to express my torment over my son and his addiction. I had a hard time sleeping at night....spent most of my time crying and I needed to find a way to deal with all of the heartache. I put words to paper.....or words to computer and here I am. So I would have to say some from personal experiences, then some from browsing the internet, and some from reading other hubbers hubs and questions. Definitely, a variety of influences.......
From past experiences, through good times and bad times. x
The majority of my hubs are poems. I get inspiration for these poems everywhere; songs, past experiences, friends and family, etc. I always carry a notepad around in order to write down any possible poem ideas or lines for a poem I may have.
I get my inspiration from family, news and just thinking, 'what if'? It's worked out fine so far, and being able to write what I want is wonderful.
Hands down... Life experiences... All of my hubs come straight from exactly how my life compels me.
Usually by things going on around me. Might be my kids, the weather, music, my feelings. They all translate into my poetry and other topics : )
I got my inspiration from my personal, day to day experiences.
I get quite a bit of inspiration from other hubs. I then tailor that to topics I like to write about.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

This is getting silly. The last few Hubs I updated had all links to other Hubs snipped, even though these links were (a) on the same topic (b) helpful to the reader and (c) pointing to the same niche site. I really try to understand why Amazon links are removed, and I get why links to other sites...

If you tell stories from your past, are they true?When you tell a story from your past, do you spice it up a little to make it sound better actually twisitng the truth to some degree? If so, is there still value in the story especially if you are trying to make a point?

For the past year or so, I've been paying very close attention to this subject. Squidoo pushed its lensmasters for a long time into providing personal content full of first-person perspective and personal pronouns. This has been a problem for me, personally, because I prefer to write in the second...
