Slight Struggle to Keep the Pace on Publishing

Based upon my desire to publish one Hub during the week and two on weekends, I am struggling just a bit to keep the pace.  By this point in February, I should have had 7 Hubs published.  Instead, I have only five.  I guess I shouldn't say only since that is still a decent number. 

Plus I have to consider the fact that the past week I felt like I was fighting a virus and required a lot of extra sleep.  I was incredibly tired and slept about 3-4 extra hours each day compared to my usual.  Now I feel like I am 100% so I would anticipate being able to get some more work done this weekend despite all of the home responsibilities as well.  I am feeling energized and motivated!

I haven't been as diligent at publishing backlinks either.  I am seriously wondering about their effectiveness with Google going after content mills if some of the linking sites will be on the radar.  I would hate to think that any effort at SheToldMe or Redgage would be all for naught.  That is why I am thinking I should continue to focus more heavily on content creation than anything else.

I may even consider writing some product Hubs at HubPages in the near future as well.  I am starting to see some results from Amazon and am seriously thinking that might be a valuable method to diversify a little of my writing.  I still feel awkward recommending any products that I have personally not tried.  Nor do I feel that I could write a Hub on "the best" such-and-such since how do I know it is the best?!  To me that seems like opinion only unless there is some data supporting such an assertion.

Anyway, I am still debating the product angle.  I will continue to work hard and write at HubPages until I can consistently earn $100 per month.  Then I will diversify some more since it is impossible to know when a particular site might fall by the wayside.  Can't have all my eggs in one basket.  In the meantime, I better get working so that I can get 3 or 4 Hubs done this weekend and get back on track.

  1. Nice, Kidgas.

    One thing is for sure, good quality content will not go away. I just keep telling myself to put in the work and not worry about the money yet, it will follow. One of my eHow articles hadn't made a but a few bucks since 12/08, then this December it made $30.00 all by its self and another $20.00 since then. Strange but encouraging.

  2. Well you have done much more work than me! I definitely agree with your idea of getting to about $100 and then diversifying. Hubpages may seem to be a very stable webpage but who knows what might happen in the future.

  3. Kidgas, I hear you. Its difficult to stay consistent in producing content. I have a hard time doing it for my own hobby site. I just paid someone to produce the content for a new niche site. It was so much easier, but of course the site will have to be a success to offset the cost. Best of luck with Hubpages. I hope you clear that $100 a month. I have very similar aspirations.

  4. Andy,
    That's great that you were able to get that kind of income from one article. I will definitely take those strange happenings which is why it is important to keep going.

    Thanks for commenting. I do wonder what will happen since I have seen a few sites change their business model. It pays to be prepared.

    Congrats on getting a new site up and running. Best of luck to you.
