How to Write With an Open Mind for Hubpages

I write and share my own work here, and enjoy sharing what I have learned through the years of writing for Hubpages

Writing for Hubpages

How to Write for Hubpages?

I joined 9 years ago, and gained 618 followers and following 459 is a start for me to find my way on this platform. I have 395 hubs published and update my hubs as regularly as possible.

Updating hubs credits me for the minor changes I make, and increases views per day.

Each time I update a hub the views are increased.

You can write anything you want here. This platform in my opinion works well for me. My focus is not about earning, though it is rewarding to receive payment. I know what I am up against writing here for that many years.

Get paid at Hubpages and you will smile forever for receiving that payment, and to see your hubs receiving lots of views per day is an improvement for a writer.

How many of your hubs have more views than comments?

I have noticed a few hubs with more views and a few comments.

My work here is not done.

I write what makes me feel happy and what I have experienced from both countries.

How can you become successful at Hubpages if you do not make it a primary focus?

Firstly, make your experience fun and encouraging to other writers, and to yourself on this platform.

Try new ideas to write on various topics.

Increase your followers and follow back those who write in your genre to gain popularity in this community.

An income is out of reach if that is your focus, think again. I enjoy what I do here, and writing gives me time to share about what affects me.

My vast knowledge on the many topics I have written has allowed me to write more at Hubpages. I write what I know of best or from my observations on certain topics.

It is never easy to write when you make the primary focus on what you earn. Hubpages is easy to understand and to begin writing hubs there is nothing complicated about it.

Just sign up for a free account and write an outstanding biography to gain readership. One of the ways to keep a reader's attention is to write quality hubs. The key is to writing quality, and on topics on demand or trending.

Have you noticed what gets the attention of readers and writers on Hubpages?

This is a community that holds each writer together in writing comments, supporting each other by engaging in comments and to be relied on for more followers.

I have spent years in online writing about my experiences since 2008. I began my journey in online writing then, and has been rewarding for me. Writing online has become competitive and enjoyable, but is still rewarding.

In 1997 I started writing, but never had my work published until 2008. There were many obstacles and I had to slow down a bit to have my work published by traditional publishers.

It has been a wonderful experience sharing my experiences about South Africa, my place of birth and of my adoptive country, Croatia on Hubpages.

Since the beginning of my 9 years here, I improved in my writing skills and increased the hub count.

I learned to have a unique bio and a professional photo to gain traffic to my hubs. It is these two aspects when writing for Hubpages that increases the views and the income as you would like it.

Use a professional photos and you will receive the justice you want for yourself. Respect and trust is what you will get when you use a professional photo.

You need to develop a specific article and with a specific photo and video to get the best out of your hubs.

Every detail must be perfect in a hub.

Articles with photos do give a reader more attention and a well-written article will not be missed.

I add three photos of my own or I use Pixabay for free images.

Remember that it is never embarrassing if another writer picks out your grammar mistakes. I had that in the past and it taught me to make sure there are no grammar mistakes before I hit the publish button.

What satisfies your writer's needs in writing for Hubpages?

As a writer, what do you feel when having finished writing a hub?

Do you think you finally achieved your goal in writing online?

Are you happy writing for Hubpages?

Participate in the community to have a popular writing method in sharing and commenting on other hubs.

To have that high score write more hubs and be supportive, with such a friendly community you are bound to be supportive.

Hubpages is a writing platform that gives you an opportunity to write and share what you have experienced. If you are expert on a topic it would give us a professional view of that topic.

Earnings are just a bonus for me.

How do you like it here?

How long have you been writing for Hubpages?

It has always been that way for writers to engage readers, also to write what you know best in your chosen topic.

You shouldn’t write about a topic you don’t know about, or copy and paste the work of others and call it yours.

A writer who writes daily is not always a good writer, nor is that writer sharing their own work. It depends on skill and what the writer has to share with us.

Knowledge is power, right!

Anyone can do that, copy and paste about whatever they find online. Writing is only interesting and alive in you when you write from the heart.

Your own work is valuable than to write about what you don’t know and to steal the work of others.

I gained popularity in online work through my writing experiences on many other platforms. Before I began writing for Hubpages I wrote for other platforms and earned a bit. My focus was never on the money.

I enjoy writing and it comes from within.

People are interested in How to articles or Hubs, Gardening, Health topics, Tourist destinations and about what makes them laugh. A good sense of humor is one of the major roles in a hub.

It is up to you!

What makes me different in what I share here?

I share hubs about what I know, about my experiences, about anything I have been affected by, and about what I observe in my surroundings.

In a small community I often find something to write about. These little moments give me opportunities to write and create my hubs.

In other words, your own thoughts are important and sharing with us makes us want to know more about you. I support most of those who follow me and this is what I look forward to each day.

I try to be creative and set out a detailed hub, and with the best photos I have from my side of the world.

Stories about those who are experiencing issues such as drug consumption or depression is informative to me. In this way I take that story and create a hub.

It is simple to create a hub, it is what you want to do in your free time and is worth reading your ideas and thoughts about the world. At Hubpages you can write and be happy without the concern of money.

When you make writing about money you don't enjoy it.

Some writers force the issue to earn and don’t earn with this attitude. Writers fail to find the enjoyment in writing. Their skills are not good enough and writing becomes boring, frustrating and a failure.

To make money from online writing, have your own website.

  • Focus on what makes you happy.
  • Be confident in writing online.
  • You can’t be like other writers, you can only be like yourself.
  • Writing is not everybody’s cup of tea.

Sometimes you sit down at your laptop all ready to have a go at it, and all these thoughts come to mind. While on other times you sit down at your laptop and nothing comes to mind. No matter what you try, if you are a true writer you will write without taking your fingers off that keyboard.

Are you a true Writer?

A true writer continues to write and never fails to deliver their best work to an audience.

Are you always in the mood to write?

Do you write on many different topics?

Are you an open minded writer?

How can you call yourself a writer, if you copy and paste the work of others and write it in your own words?

A true writer will write and research information. Write about what they are affected by and what is of interest to them. This can be hobbies, or about themselves.

Poetry, as well in your own words is just fantastic!

An open-minded writer learns from other writers. Write and know that whatever you write can be changed or learned from others.

Never be closed minded about writing. As you get older you realize your beliefs and what is important to you. A challenge to stay open-minded for writing and gaining the experience needed for it.

Being cynical and growing older go together.

Adapting to change is never easier when you get older. A change does keep you going at any age, if you put your mind to it. A challenge to keep going at what you have a passion for even it is not about writing keep at it.

In detail what you need to do, is to get out there and write to your heart's content. Be in control of your thoughts and write from your heart.

Write about what you know and familiar with rather than copying and pasting work from online. It may feel good but for an audience you will ruin your reputation.

Original is key to gaining an audience.

On any writing platform you must share original, quality and your own work. Writers like to write, and like to talk about their work or discuss their ideas, but you are not a writer unless you share what you know best of, and it is your own work.

You can comment on every hub to gain followers or to expect the favor back. It means nothing if you do not share your own work.

Thank you alexadry for a kind comment. I too will not do anything I do not enjoy. A few years ago I worked at a local hotel. In the beginning I like and enjoyed it. As time passed by I began to hate it and had to leave. I couldn't continue doing something that made me unhappy.

Adrienne Farricelli on April 13, 2021:

You have made many valid points here and it's true that writing must come from the heart! I once was hired to write on topics that didn't interest me and they were out of my specialty, but the pay was good because people searched those topics a lot and Google ads paid good for certain keywords. I had to stop as I couldn't stomach another day like that! Thanks for sharing your tips and it's great that you have enjoyed writing for so long and made it through all the challenges the online writing world brings.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on April 12, 2021:

I tried to comment on as many as I could others won't allow it. I enjoyed reading your work. Poetry is with great expressions and deep emotions.

Hi Devika,

I always enjoy your original photos and learning about what motivates you to write. Learning from one another is a huge perk while writing on this site. Hard to believe, but I have been here 12 years! What do those beautiful photos represent? Are they near where you now live?

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 10, 2021:

Great information, Devika, for someone considering HP as a platform. Thanks for sharing your experience here. You are a valued member of our community.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 10, 2021:

I totally agree with you, Devika. The money comes but slowly; it's the community that counts. As you say, writing from the heart and with passion is the key.

I like your enthusiasm and encouragement. You have come a long way since you started. Well done and long may you continue with your delightful style.

Ann
