Topic of the Week
To think or speculate curiously.
The ability to see the miraculous or remarkable in everything.
I've been so quiet over here. I know. I know. Not a good idea to completely ignore your blog if you are even slightly interested in developing a following! Anyway, I haven't been entirely silent in the world of my web foot print. You see I've just discovered HubPages and I am entirely hooked. Have you heard of them? I feel like I must have been living under a rock to have missed them but I am hoping to make up for lost time!
HubPages are special one page web sites that you can write on specific topics that are of interest to you. Unlike a blog you are not confined to any one particular theme or interest. Sure in a personal blog I can tell you that I love a specific toy or share a cause I'm interested in but what makes hub pages unique is that the pages are stand alone. I don't know about you but when I write a great post it kind of makes me sad knowing that it will just become buried in my blog some where. With a blog things are only as good as the latest post. With HubPages I can make each standalone article it's own focus. I can promote it and make it the "Hub" or focal point on the web for my favorite things.
I'm really just getting started and I am so excited about the possibilities. One of the things that is very exciting to me is I can test out different topics and different SEO techniques on the hubpges and then apply the winning strategies over on my blog. There is also a way to make some money if you can write hubs that generate some traffic. I like that I can revisit my hub and make it better over time. Unlike a blog post a hub can evolve and grow.
My first hub which I wrote on baby wearing is already generating a little bit of traffic and I had fun writing about something I believe in. My girl is getting too old for wrapping but I got to relive it in my hub and potentially help other people who are interested in using slings or wraps to carry their babies.
