    What topics are best to write about?

    It depends on what kind of audiences you want. I've been writing for some time now even before joining Hubpages, and from my own experience I can say that if you want a wider range of audience, you should write on topics that appeal to generally most people. If you are looking for a faithful following, however, you should write on topics that you are most interested in, or have a deep expertise in, where you can share more quality knowledge with your audience.

    Hubpages is an international website, so if you want to capture a wide range of audiences, it would be good to write on general topics that most people can relate to regardless of geographical boundaries. Otherwise, write what you feel confident in or have a deep interest or expertise in, and I'm sure readers sharing the same interest or expertise will appreciate you more for your wealth of knowledge.

    Any topic you are passionate about. That would translate into your writing, making it more rich and real. On the other hand, if you write about things you're not that crazy about, just to please a certain audience, it might be a well-written article, but it would lack that extra-something that an article about something you like might have.

    Travelogues and historical topics seem to go down well with the Hub pages 'audience'. Funnily enough, so do model railways.
    I've drawn any number of visitors with my 'TRAVEL NORTH' pages. Literally hundreds. Similarly my historical pages have done well, some of the tavel pages combining both walking/cycling routes with local history.
    As for railway modelling, all twenty of the 'RITES OF PASSAGE...' pages have performed well, too, partly drawing in my followers from the 'rmweb' site.
    couple of the Hub-pages contributors speciaise in photographical subjects. Another takes his readers through a variety of guitars and guitarists.
    What pleases you will no doubt please others, as long as you make your pages readable, with consistently good grammar/vernacular.

    If you're trying to get a lot of followers, you should write about things that a lot of people tend to read about. But personally, I find that writing about what you enjoy does wonders, because your passion comes through each word, and you can draw the people in who will most interest you - finding like-minded people through your writing and getting good feedback rather than attracting the masses.

      Thank you for your answer Michelle, I think you are right about writing for what we are passionate about.

    Try to write on topics that excite you the most and about which you also have profound knowledge. Topics which are not interesting will also not ignite the passion of your readers to go through it. Topics like do alien truly exist or how much you think alien know about us is truly interesting. You can also write topics about top 5 or top 10 sea beaches, ski resorts, hotels etc. You may refer to the site http://www.buzzle.com/articles/interest … about.html
