So this truly isn't about getting people to click on my hub, but I am basically writing my way through the Complete Works of Shakespeare and I just can't decide which one to do next, so I set a poll up on my hub today and I would like some input if anybody is so inclined. Thank you in advance!
Post on what you like the most .... why are you asking people .....
You can get some great tips over at the 30 hubs in 30 days forum. They have loads of ways to get you motivated and think of a great topic. Try joining the hubmob too, they'll give you something to write on! Good luck Lori!
You'd have to be familiar with my hubs to understand. I HAVE a topic. I'm reading and writing my way through The Complete Works of Shakespeare. I'm trying to decide which play to read next. I've had some requests for particular plays so I'm trying to find out which one to do next. I will eventually do them all. I don't need help deciding on a topic. But thank you for taking the time to offer the advice.
I have a GED so I cant suggest nothing, but I will go to your hub to catch up. Someone told me I was like Macbeth. Though he was callin me a girl until he told me the story. Never got to actually read it without having my eyes glaze over or fall asleep.
I have not read your hubs, so I do not know which plays you have done thus far. My favorites are Othello, King Lear, and
The Taming of the Shrew.
Do you want to start with a comedy like As You Like It or drama like King Richard or Othello?
The taming of the shrew, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Henry 5.
IN THAT ORDER! hehe
I think Hamlet is probably the best... so in terms of clicks and views I would either do Hamlet or Julius Caesar because they are the most commonly studied plays in the classroom. The taming of the shrew is the best comedy I THINK.
Julius Ceasar! [ugh...] Although I saw a mediocre production of it, I couldn't feel a thing through reading it, either. But I was probably not tuned in very well. Methinks. Alack and alas.
Other than that my dear, I wouldn't know where to begin, either. Which is your fave, Lori?
Taming of the Shrew and A Comedy of Errors are my faves, but I'm a bit partial to the comedies. I will definitely let you know when I do Julius Ceasar. Perhaps my interpretation will make it somewhat more interesting, afterall I am the one who compared Paris in Romeo and Juliet to Roman Polanski.....
I have done All's Well That Ends Well and Romeo and Juliet so far. Right now it looks like it might be a tie between A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, and Taming of the Shrew. Although, Hamlet is winning in the "official" poll. Thanks for all the suggestions.
What does this have to do with Monetizing your hubs? Are you complaining that Shakespeare isn't earning you money? (Not meaning to sound condescending but topic is misleading)
Lori, those are topics people may search for; so you may want to monetize your Hubs, or at least put Ad Sense on them. Don't think because they're literature people aren't searching for them.
I just meant that I'm not asking people to come to my page because I want money. I want them to come for purely inspirational motives. I've signed up for Amazon and Ebay, but really I'm not interested in making money off of this. I am doing this for intrinsic rewards.
I can't do adsense because for some unknown reason I was banned from them a few years ago. I have no idea why and I'm just not interested in doing business with a company that treats people like that. I didn't do anything against their TOS, I never clicked on my own ads and I never asked anybody else to, and I never even backlinked to anybody. I was very green at the whole blogging thing at the time. I guess Google is powerful enough that they can convict a person without a trial. So be it. I NEVER click on an adsense ad because I completely believe you have to stand up for what's right even if you stand alone.
I think my favorite is Titus, or is it called Titus Andronicus? Either way its my favorite and I think one of his lesser known works.
I would go through the plays in chronological order. I'm kind of a nut for chronological order! (Failing that; alphabetical.)
First of all i find it hilarious that sexy tells you to write your hubs on what you like since it is obvious that is not what sexy does. Sexy posts nothing but cleavage pics and bollywood pics to make money.
Give me a break! Did I miss something there? Yes, people, she is doing her hubs on Shakespeare but is confused about the order in which she wishes to do them.
Okay, now that we all have that straight, I think that you should do whichever one you like first, Lori. They're YOUR hubs. I have experience teaching mostly R&J and Hamlet. I personally enjoy the "guts" of Hamlet.
You come back from college and your dad's ghost tells you your uncle killed me and he is f*cking your mom now. Your GF goes crazy, your buddies wonder about you, you have to deal with an evil step-dad . . . it's good stuff.
LOL...I love your synopsis. Do you mind if I quote you when I do Hamlet?
That's how I explain to adults how I used to teach it to kids. Everyone told me you can't teach hamlet to middle school kids. I told them i could and I would and I did.
I avoided the profanity but other than that it's pretty much the basic synopsis and descriptive phrases.
Be my guest! Is that a new profile pic? It's a good one!
You should have started by doing them:
- in order of length
You wouldn't have had this problem then.
I did vote on your site. I taught college English for quite a while. I think, to understand any writer's work, the best beginning is to understand the writer first. It gives perspective to everything else. To understand Shakespeare, his sonnets hold the key to the writer himself, and from that you understand the dramas differently.
I did see the votes for the sonnets, and it's very nice to meet you. My degree is in English and I actually a class strictly on Shakespeare's Sonnets, so I've kind of put off doing those until I've gone through some of his other works. Since I studied them it won't be quite as fun to read them and try to figure it all out. You know? Although now that I know there is a college English teacher in the midst I may be a little more intimidated with my somewhat irreverant take on the Bard.

It has been such a fun exercise to participate in Hubpages author Annart's shorty story challenge. She posted a picture of her own painting and asked everyone to write a story from it. It has been amazing to watch so many talented writers rise to the challenge and produce incredible...

Hey everyone,This might seem like a silly question, the answer to which is probably glaringly obvious to my more experienced fellow hubbers, but I'm truly at a loss here. I'd like to know how you come up with original hubs to write after doing research on a proposed topic. Nearly every...

I was thinking that the hub hopping tool is great and all, but it doesn't really address hubs that are older and have slipped through the cracks for months and even years.I was thinking that we could have an adopt a topic program.For example, I've been writing a lot of hubs on Nepal and have looked...
