Tips on HubPages #4 - Why Comments Matter
Man is a social being. As we socializes with other people, our normal way of communication involves comments that will agree or contradict with the issues you are tackling with.
Here on HubPages, I will always leave comments to articles that interest me. Comments matter to writers who thrive here. Although, some hubbers purposely exclude the comment box for others to leave insights, the rest, including me, follow the usual pattern of hubbing.
Both HubPages users and readers are my target audience when publishing an article. In my part, I share my hubs regarding the situation in my country.
Readers in the Philippines are becoming aware of what's going on in the country because I am concentrating on the issues that affect the lives of my countrymen.
Although, the scope of HubPages is for worldwide audience, I also contribute hubs that range with topics on travel and places, and people, too.
Reasons for leaving comments
Leaving comments is gratifying to all writers. It indicates that online readers are aware that you are contributing to HubPages and other writing sites.
You may leave comments on the article that you've read because:
- you are impressed with the writing style of the hubber.
- you want to add some information regarding the subject that was presented.
- you wanted to thank the writer for bringing the story into the light.
- you can relate with the particular topic that was published.
- you want to argue with the writer.
In my experience, the comments that I received came from hubbers who followed me since day one of my hubbing life. As my followers increase, newbies are doing their part to be known here at the site and at the same time invite fellow hubbers to read their hubs.
Nasty comments often come from non-member readers of the site. Some even wrote it in our Filipino language.
Although, disgusted with such kind of tirade from online users, I am also surprised that some students do leave comments for they use some of my hubs as reference for their assignments in school.
National television networks also noticed some of my hubs and their staff requested to base their documentary from it.
There are options to moderate comments. The good thing in HubPages is that you can disapprove comments that you believe as a spam or just a promotional thread for another site.
In my part, I welcome some comments of non-member readers, as long as it is sensible and related with the article that I've written.
The comment alert or advisory will be linked to you email address. You can either check or leave the follow comment box blank if you want to follow comments that are written by the hubbers you are also following.
As long as you are leaving inspiring comments or different reactions based from what you've read, it will make the writer more proud and happy about his contribution on this site.
So please, always make it a habit to leave comments.
I will be happy to make more sensible hubs because of you.
