About examples from life in a hub.
I have studied the instructions about how to write a hub. No anecdotes are one suggestion. I can agree, but what about real life examples? I always thought that some concrete examples helped me to understand theories and ideas. Do you recommend it or not?
You can definitely include personal examples. I've written articles about a couple of subjects that included personal stories to go along with them.
I don't know why someone would suggest not using personal experiences or real life examples in hubs. I wouldn't overload a hub with anecdotes, but I use them quite frequently. As you said, using examples may help to clarify a theory or idea. For example, I wrote a hub about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of cerebral aneurisms. I could've simply stated the facts, but I also added a section about what my mother experienced. I think her story helped the readers better understand the medical facts I presented. I say use them as long as they add to or explain your topic.
Personal anecdotes work wonders in keeping your readers attention. I try to fit them in whenever possible. No matter what the subject if you can build a human connection with personal experience you will get more readers. Jamie
I can read in your answers that it is a good way to go:) I thought so too. I might have misunderstood:) I will continue to amplify my writing with examples to give a clearer picture. Thank you for answered my question!

I need help getting this hub to qualify for Spinditty. It was suggested I seek help on this forum. There are issues with title/subtitle capitalization, spelling/grammar, and the Amazon product. I think I've fixed everything, but I can't be sure. We did buy this drum set for my grandson and the hub...

This is the second travel/lodging Hub that has been rejected by WanderWisdom. I have some questions from the community so I can go forward. These are the generic reasons the editor gave.-is about a current event and written in a way that won't be relevant to readers in the future. Perhaps you can...

Should a writer still try to post a hub even if someone close to them isn't comfortable with it?I wrote a short story (my first attempt at one anyways) and it's based on my past. The only thing is one of the people that was involved in that situation doesn't want me to post it, even though...

When hub hopping, one can flag hubs that are 'substandard', because they are 'purely personal'.Thus, I know how to respond if I see something that says:'I got up, had a cup of coffee, went back to bed with a newspaper for an hour, then got up and had a shower'.That seems reasonable to flag.However,...
