    Attempting increase of my presence online, suggested to me by a friend to have an article written?

    Suggestion was to have an article written about myself independent from my own content(written by another writer).

    Opinions?

    Lee.....If your issue is that your online presence needs to increase....you may want to realize that you need to make yourself MORE present & visible.
    It's highly unlikely an "article" about you will do the trick.  If no one knows you, why would they read it?
    I see you have very minimal followers and you follow nearly no one.  You've written only 4 hubs in 19 months.

    Bottom line?  Being a freelance writer is ongoing serious work.  Get busy.. Write quality hubs, respond to comments, introduce yourself, (so to speak) to others.  Make use of social media sites~FB, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.   Participate in forums & respond to Q&A.  Use your imagination and more importantly realize this is YOUR project.  People do not simply flock to you.  Be realistic.

      Thank you for your response, and I completely agree, however, I wasn't referring to my content on hubpages, I was simply coming back to hear to get opinions on the concept.

      There's your critical issue.  You want PRESENCE?  An article about YOU, as I said will do little if anything.  WRITING gives you presence,  You shouldn't be separating the two.  I said this all the first time.

      And that is all I was asking, I was just clarifying for those who may come and read this at a later time, thank you again for your advice and should I take writing online as my primary aspiration then I shall take that advice onboard as well

      Thanks for the reply, what do you think about what I stated in the question? (I am aware now that I didn't make myself clear, I am not talking about my hubpages content).

      Creating bios on your Hubpages is a start, creating a bio on your blog or Amazon author page is great, getting others to write a bio on you along with reviews of your content would be more credible than writing your own "about you" page.

      Thank you Tamara for your reply, I will bare that in mind when it comes to posting more content, do you think I could benefit from this on non-written content also?
