    What has caused you to write on something outside of your usual range of topics?

    The most recent and significant drop in pageviews has me considering writing different types of articles.  While I still plan on continuing to review consumer products and food items, I am considering doing some book reviews and writing short biographies of interesting people and reviewing local attractions.

    I don't really consider myself an expert on anything in particular.  I like to write about what interests me and what I think will interest others.  I don't feel like it should be forced, but something you enjoy.  Writing about different things also increases your knowledge about various topics.
    In sum, I just write about what I feel like at the time.

    I write about a variety of topics. I also write poetry and things that happen in my life. I also haven't been writing much on HubPages due to some health issues, so it's only understandable that my page views have dropped.  If you review consumer products and food items, you might want to consider reviewing the newer ones as that might be of more interest to people who want to try the products or food items.  Good luck.

    On hubpages, which is speculative and is just there for a bit of fun, I never write outside my favourite topics.  However, for print magazines that pay I will research and write on any subject.

    If you're grappling with writing what you know- go for a change of scenery and write there. By no means do you need to be strapped to one location, love or area of interest. Give yourself some flexibility in your paying jobs. Maybe going for a couple of research articles so your phone bill will get paid would be a good start.
    Writers don't write. We do and tell.
