How to tie and wear long rectangular / oblong scarves.

There are many different ways to wear a long rectangular / oblong scarf, yet most people only know of one or two ways. However, long rectangualr scarves are highly versatile and can be tied in a variety of ways to produce stunning results. I have found several clips on YouTube on ways to wear long oblong scarves. The techniques are simple, yet the results are stunning.

The scarves provide not only warmth but also a splash of colour and style to outfits. When worn with a jacket, they fill in the neck area and add a touch of glamour and sophistication. All of the styles can be worn with casualwear or work/office and eveningwear. The trick is to choose a scarf in an appropriate fabric, such as cotton for casualwear and something more silky for work or eveningwear.

I have put together the best YouTube clips that demonstrate ways to tie long scarves. The clips are in order of the weight of the fabric as different fabric weights produce different effects.

The clips start with a scarf in the lightest most sheerest chiffon, then proceed through long scarves in silk and then ends in heavier weight fabrics.

I hope this provides you with the help you are looking for on ways to wear a scarf.

The next YouTube clip shows the tying of a long scarf in silk.

Whilst still a fine fabric, the silk is a little bit heavier than the previous chiffon scarf and therefore can hold more of a sculptural shape such as the pretty double bow at the end.

My Blogs

I also have several Blogs which you may find interesting:

Join me and thousands of people from all around the world and write articles (Hubs) with Hubpages - an American company. I live in England and joined three years ago and so far have 50 articles (Hubs), all written in my spare time. They earn me passive income every month. Some Hubbers have hundreds, even thousands of articles.

How does it work?

Hubpages provides the facility for you to write and publish articles online. They put adverts on the page which earn you money every month. Once you have written an article, you just leave it and it has the potential to earn you passive income every month for years.

What can I write about?

  • Creative writing - such as short stories and poetry
  • Product reviews
  • Any subject you like. Examples include travel, hobbies, money, relationships, child-care, history, art, politics, fashion, technology etc

How much can I earn?

Hubpages puts adverts on our articles and we earn money every time someone reads the article - between US$3 to $8 per 1000 views. My average hubs are viewed/ read by about 30 people a day, my most popular hubs are read by 100 people a day. If you do the maths, you will see that a popular Hub, read 100 times a days, earns between US$110 to US$290 a year, and will continue to do so every year. Last year my hubs generated enough passive income to pay for my summer holiday and are on track to do the same again this year and every year.

How long does it take to write an article / Hub?

Some articles take me a couple of hours to write, others may take up to 5 hours to write. On average, I write one article a week. Many Hubpage members write more, some write less.

How much will it cost me?

  • Nothing. Hubpages is FREE to join. You share your earnings with them. You keep 60%, they keep 40%. They want you to earn and make it easy for you.

It sounds too good to be true, where's the catch?

The catch is that you need to write good quality articles on subjects that enough people want to read about and make them easy to find on the internet.

How do I do this?

It is really easy when you know how. When you think about a topic you may want to write about, do the following:

  • Think about some key phrases related to the subject.
  • As an example, say you want to write a chicken curry recipe hub. Some connected phrases may be "How to cook a chicken curry", "Chicken Curry Recipe", "Recipe for Chicken Curry", "Easy Chicken Curry Recipe", "Hot Chicken Curry Recipe" - you get the idea..........
  • Use the online "Adsense Keyword Tool". It is provided by Google and is free to use.
  • To find it, simply type in Adsense Keyword Tool into search.
  • Type in all of your phrases. The keyword tool will then tell you how many people a month are typing in these phrases.
  • Look for a phrase that is searched for at least 3000 times a month.
  • As an example, say you notice that 3000 people a month search for "How to cook a chicken curry" compared to only 500 who search for "Hot Chicken Curry Recipe".
  • You call your article the most searched for phrase - "How to cook a chicken curry"
  • Include this phrase into both the title and the content of your hub.
  • Your article now stands a good chance of appearing on the first page of the Search Engines search results page, being clicked on and read.

What you are doing is finding out exactly what people want, the exact phrases they are typing into the search engines to find it, and writing articles that give them what they are looking for. You make it easy for them to find your article by using their search phrase in your title and content.

Give people what they are looking for and you will make money.

How else can I earn with Hubpages?

  • Sell E-Bay and Amazon Products on your Hubs and earn commission.
  • Encourage a friend to join Hubpages and receive 10% of their earnings

Once you have written an article, you just leave it and it will earn you money every day for years. That is passive income.

If I can do it, so can you.

Follow these six easy steps to join hubpages and start earning:

I recommend writing them down so you know what to do.

  1. Join Hubpages, the link is below, then.....
  2. Activate the Hubpages Earnings Programme to allow adverts to be shown on your account.
