Writers responsibility to be real with what they write

Being a writer is a powerful thing, whether you choose to do it online, offline or even as a person who chooses to write your words into journals. Writing and discovering what makes you tick as a writer is essential in learning to fully express in words that of your truest passions, emotions, life recollections, moments of struggle, celebrations, goals and aspirations etc..

New mental channels may begin to open up, in such a way that your mind can create pathways for words to flow. This is where your true writers voice will come in, and when it has the greatest potential to streamline such things as the hate emotion, or that of loves fibrous like attractive, and repulsive vibes, joy, signs of pain, and so many other great life themes that all tend to emerge out of our mental telekinetic pathways.

The mind is the key to access such pure energy of thought, and once carefully triggered can stir up a storm, and flurry of words in its connection as well as congruence that will become quite astonishing to say the least, and shortly thereafter once the words have done hit the page. It then becomes our responsibility to place into action, that of great relevance, truth for researched materials, intense detailing for all intents and purposes, and the best creative works for fictional stories, poems, epic tales and many more subjects to be unleashed.

There's loads more subjective reasons behind the responsive motives a writer has today, but keep in mind that we all are in this online thing together as a professional networking community, and for many of us its for the long haul, so please try to be responsible to one another, as fellow writers of good sportsman like conduct & comrade.

Stiff competitors are actual words themselves to fight


Tough competition

Being an online writer today is super competitive, and mainly because of the undeniable fact, that in order for your digital works to get anywhere you must realize, that there are machines that will be accepting such information, and these machines are highly discriminant as to what relevance such info that filters through their wired backbones, and digital skeletal systems.

These machines are controlled by such places known as data centers, in which are being managed and run by humans, even though such information is generally screened by a virtual robot (Program) of sorts, it doesn't mean that such information, will not and cannot fall into the hands of human scrutiny, and when such a thing occurs then and only then will it become a matter of grave importance.

Examples of these automated programs are Google's web crawler bot's (Panda Update), and Hubpages has bot's as well that detect everything we do, social networks have bot's as well that detect good flow of conduct as well as electronic spam type of flow, so be aware of your conduct everywhere today, you may be deemed or marked as a spammer, or someone who is questionable if you don't know how to balance out your sharing, and promotional activities.

All of our articles pass through these Google Data Centers for intense inspection, before landing on search engines to be indexed

There's nothing like good Drama!

How the online drama begins

Other then that moment it all equates to digits, numbers flying around from off of the wireless connections, a great deal of wired connections, and so on and so fourth.

For an online writer to be able to breach the boundaries of becoming known in that of the real world, it is almost impossible, but it has been done, mainly because the way the Internet is set up, is once a online profile achieves such a height of digital recognition (higher stats viewable by others as well = competition in their eyes potentially), well from that point forwards the web will send much more action to such a location, unless if the bots are re-instructed to scan these locations for potential violations, illegal activities, and or anomalies that exist (False intentions either legal or illegal).

Billions of online users are simultaneously communicating, making efforts to earn income revenue streams (On Facebook, Google+, Stumbleupon, Digg etc..), some people just trying to get by day to day online, and maybe little ole Amy who's been trying to find a date for years (A figurative character) or probably some dude named Tom or Bob, all looking for their soul mates probably. More then likely they're all in the wrong kind of networking portal to do such things as well, unless its Facebook, maybe some lousy dating site, or a malicious spammers network set out to trick people into believing that spamming people is OK to do.

For the most part people should learn that this is just a tool to make human contact, when we are on social messaging on these networking platforms, and its important to try to be as real as possible on them, even if it means to UN-friend someone on it, or block their annoying communications if at all necessary.

Them days of old are lone gone

Writers in ancient times wrote with feather tipped pens, and onto Sanskrit, writing journals and taking historical daily records, and today things have evolved a great deal indeed

Being real is tough and making real friends is tougher

Being a online writer is probably one of the most competitive arena's to choose as a career choice today, plus for the other undeniable fact that there are literally billions of websites, that all have been in a constant state of competition with one another, and at all times, which is also the reason why web page ranking is there in the first place. (Link provided is to Facts about Google and Competition.)

So you definitely need to be real with people in order to make true friends who can help support your writing efforts online, and you can help support theirs as well.

However, this doesn't mean that you go running around digitally from network to network, expecting people to share your content all the time, just because you surfaced upon theirs first somehow, and then shared it for them. You still need to try to get to know them over time somehow, communicate to them from time to time, and you just never know what potential true friends you just might earn and how real they may turn out to be towards you. (My good friend Bill Holland shows his testimony to this very truth i an article titled "The Brotherhood of Man: Finding Commonalities".)

Social networking isn't real, there's far to much drama involved, to much cut throat action and to many fake friends

Some of us write like angels, and others its pretty tough to tell


The Internet is not to be mistaken for that of real life, and not in any way shape or form, but these factors of having social elements involved today, have surely made things even more competitive (Even if a person doesn't admit to it), which makes things ever so difficult for the individual who's going at it all alone.

This is also due to the very fact that we're no longer only dealing with digits versus web stats, and data points versus search results, and the old Internet with pop up and all is no more, there is a sharing element in place on all social networking platforms, that when done correctly amongst good caring community of loving people, can lead your content being shared to set sail into online super success (Also known as reaching Viral status), but hate, favoritism and dis-contention will smother any chances of such a thing ever developing.

So also choose your friends wisely, those who start trouble are the ones who will steer any group, network of friends, and all into oblivion and no matter how huge a network, website or what have you.

We're currently dealing with a social evolution and revolution of epic digital proportions, also having billions of differing personalities of vastly differing magnitudes that are converging on a daily basis behind these computer screens.

This requires a newer kind of approach to things, a wiser decision making skill when it comes to networking on all social and professional levels. Making effective communications that if done properly today is a must, kind integrity and honesty can make a world of a difference for us all while we engage in such communicative efforts for each other.

Please feel free to leave a comment, being real counts even for those as well. I hope you enjoyed this article, and there's plenty more like it to come.

      @Lord De Cross, thanks bro its tough for us to do the right thing by others, and for that of ourselves without allowing selfish, or foolish pride to step into way.

      Being real does indeed hack away all the selfishness indeed, and opens up clean clear pathways for a more fluid flow of awesome positive community sharing factors, where those who truly deserve to gain recognition for their outstanding help, loving support, humility and kind giving nature become automatically delivered by that of the community, as opposed to being generically based or self fulfilling from self absorbed individuals.

      This is why I love hubpages so much, people support one another in more ways then one. I cannot say the say for the world as a whole.

      Super Mike with such an archetype of a brain made from the place that saw J-Lo and so many artists flourish. From Apollo theather to Hollywood Boulevard we can accomplish our dreams by being real and helping each other with an auto self inflicting reward. Your words are powerful indeed CE. This community have come to know the humbleness in you, and we applaud that young spirit instilled with wisdom and resilience. Mommy did a good job, and grandpa must be proud of Michael. Amen brother!

      @Tina Truelove, this is a good thing that you have detected you own faults, and even if it was totally done out of pure innocence, and any potential misunderstandings as to how the way things truly work behind the scenes of the wen here.

      The thing is no matter what we choose to place into words and onto the screen or no matter who we perceive of whom we think we are, the web is always going to be the web right!

      The owners and managers have a responsibility, a reputation to uphold, and all the likes, and so this is why things have gotten so tough lately, and these CEO's are not playing around anymore pretty much.

      Thanks for being so honest, and I do believe all of us can repair our online wen reps, as long as we don't let things get to our heads, and begin to realize its all about balance and a bit of fair play sort to speak.

      Thanks for the great information. I have learned about some of this the hard way. I never share my own articles here on HubPages, but I spent a few days placing URLs to all my hubs on all my social networks and some of them were marked as "spam." I have been removing all the links and my page views have more than doubled in the last 24 hours. I wasted hours trying to promote my work. Now, I'm just going to enjoy writing, be more active in my online writing communities, and wisely share the works of others. I also didn't know that too many links in the body of my articles also hurts my ranking with Google. I have been removing those too. I'm seeing positive results. So, am I to assume that a "spam marking" isn't permanent if we correct our mistakes and improve our content?

      @Gypsy Rose Lee, Thank you for showing your support here for me in my hub, I do my best to tell the truth and nothing but it.

      I sense things that are going on, and from my own lack of understanding it all, then I try to evaluate what needs to be done for me to fix such an issue I have once had, and hence this is the end results of all of my findings today and in terms of being a networking person, as well as online writer today.

      I truly appreciate your kind words Rasma, I owe you some visits too, see you soon.

      @Mhatter99, yes bro you know how we do man, we tell it like it is, and in hopes that others may find something in it useful, this is a truth and not so well known fact and new reality for most of us online today.

      Social everything and online everything is taking over pretty much, and so lines must be etched into place as to help people learn how to be more effective at making such communications.

      There hasn't been any hand books written on the limitations there of, and so I figured why not start my book writing efforts here on hubpages, one hub at a time, and in effect to help those online to see this new light we all need to face while sharing & networking today especially as online publishers, web editors, and writers, you know bro.

      Oh yes Bill I am open to loads of sarcasm, criticism, any of that cool jazz bro, you know I love to have fun here and on Facebook.

      This place needed a hub views make over lately, and it still does, and there's nothing better then some good ole healthy competition to motivate folks into thinking about putting the steam rollers on right!

      Inspiration comes from many differing places, angles, and directions today Bill as you very well know, and so mine is a source from the connections of all others at times, and so I am just getting started with it all as well.

      Being humble is half of the secret to this online world I do believe, and a humbling experience of hitting rock bottom socially surely is as well, I been there before in the real world and I never ever wanna go back!

      I love this hubpages community so much, that I will fight to defend it at all costs, and if I sense anyone being mistreated in any way shape or form I shall make a stand, and even if its just some subliminal rock tossing of terminology here or there, I care not for it and will not accept it on my watch!

      So yup you know me bro, I'm always ready and fully prepared to go off with words, but strategy is the name of the game for sure on hubpages and in keeping with the good spirits of the community as well. (Chess 101)

      Thanks bro for you ultra insightful comment Bill you are one super hubber and my good friend who knows how to make a difference with your words for sure. Oh I told my wife you said Hi.

      Be real....get to know them as a! What a concept!!!!

      Of course I'm being facetious and maybe a tad sarcastic, but man oh man, you are speaking the truth buddy, as you always do, and as I expect you to do. Just one of the reasons why I like you so much.

      I have said it before but I'll say it again...the reason I value HP so much is because of the real friendships I have gained through that site...the relationships and comments mean the world to me, buddy, and I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about.

      Hang in there buddy, thank you for this, and have a great evening with that wife of yours.

      @chrisinhawaii, yeah it's a serious thing the whole spamming situation on social networks, and I learned as well when none of my family communicated to me too, so yup you live and you learn, and that's all that we can do pretty much.

      Thanks for stopping by and giving my hub here some much needed love.

      " be aware of your conduct everywhere today, you may be deemed or marked as a spammer, or someone who is questionable if you don't know how to balance out your sharing, and promotional activities."

      Hi Mike. This (above) is exactly what happened to me on Facebook, I think. I wasn't incredibly active on their before I got into writing. Once I started writing regularly, I started to share links to my hubs and blog articles. I got some traffic from my FB friends and family for about a week or two...and then nothing.

      No traffic. No comments. No likes...nothing. It was frustrating. Eventually I was commenting on a former photography client's status and he was like, "Oh, hey Chris! I'm surprised to hear from you. I haven't seen you on Facebook for MONTHS."

      Huh? I'd been posting pics, status updates, and links almost every day, and he never even sees them? And just this week my wife said the same thing. She thought I just wasn't posting anymore. Dude, my own wife never sees my posts!

      So I guess FB has some kind of algo-type setup where they block all your posts if you suddenly bump up your sharing activity.

      Back to the ole drawing board...

      I am amazed at how many great hubs you write so quickly and you bet it hard because the competition is there. They even say it get really hard when you start making big money online and that when you have to keep up with the drama.
