We all know how important encouragement is to new writers. Go find 3 Hubs that have zero comments and leave an encouraging note. All of your followers will see that you commented on their Hub and hopefully a few will leave a comment as well. Go find some new Hubbers and send them some love!
I seriously love meeting new Hubbers and am constantly looking for new writer friends. Everyday I come across a few I haven't met before and am astounded by the talent.
Are we allowed to post a a link to a Hubber's profile page here in the forums. It would be a great way of introducing new Hubbers to our community.
@Availiasvision, I am Nancy Hardin, recently moved here from Squidoo. Thank you for such a good idea. I'm still working on getting my lenses turned into Hubs and I've made a lot of progress. I think your idea for commenting on new Hubbers work is a good one.
@Mary, Yes, I remember being so ecstatic when one of my hubs was commented on. Millionairetips, Billybuc, bdegiulio, and Moviemaster, were all very welcoming to be.
It's so hard to be a young Hubber, trying desperately to get to the thousand view mark and celebrating the first penny earned. If we want HubPages to be a high quality and friendly site, it is solely in our hands. I am prepared to defend this site against spammers, spin articles, and stolen material. I just love writing here so much, that I hope it will be here for my whole writing career.
Who knows, some of the writers that we encourage may go on to write for Nat Geo, write a best seller, or an Academy Award winning screenplay. Right now they might be discouraged and want to give up, but we see their potential and fuel them on.
You've always been really encouraging in the comments. Keep it up!
Hi everyone. May I introduce http://bakerosity.hubpages.com/ is the group. Bakerosity is fairly new, has tons of un-commented hubs, and is a fantastic fiction, poetry, and cuisine writer. Go say hello!
Thanks for joining. Our army of encouragers is growing--which is--encouraging! When you find newer Hubbers, link their profile into the forum so that we can all meet them. I've seen it already do a lot of good.
Welcome! Let the encouraging begin! The classic version of the Hub Hopper, just click on the HH, then click the "classic" button, allows you to leave comments on the Hubs. The new version does not. It's a great way to meet new Hubbers because most of the Hubs are ones that HubPages wants the community to approve of or not. It's part of the Hub evaluation for being featured. Most of the ones I come across are either new hubbers, Hubs on the verge of not being features, or ones with little or no interaction.
Have fun and feel free to share with us any Hubbers who could use a few kind words.
Welcome Ashley! That's awesome that you have already been chosen for an Editor's Choice. Those are very rare and are such an honor. Wow, 6 hubs in 4 days----you should have no problem meeting any goals you set. I'm not sure which forum is for goal setting. There are Hub challenges, where you try and do 30 hubs in 30 days and share with each other the results. I know a lot of people who have jump started their career here by doing that.
Availiasvison: I'm just new here and I find your warm suggestion to your co-experts as the greatest motivation for newbies like me. I'm looking forward to meet good writers with good heart like you here in HP community.Thanks for this brilliant idea.
I love this idea! I'm going to follow your advice and try to comment on at least one hub a day. Knowing you have a reader who appreciates your work is a great way to encourage creativity in any writer. Thank you!
You bet #Availiasvision. You are so right. It is a super idea, for anyone concerned. The newbies like me get a lift.
The old hands get to see how many out there are still trying to get the first 'badge', the first Featured Hub, the first rung of any ladder within Hubpages. That could easily give the experienced hands something to be pleased about, to remember of their first days and how far they have come since then.
I love my yellow stickies on the desktop. it is the only way I know best, to have lists and to cross them off as I go. Invariably I do more than when I keep the lists in my head.
Now if we each write down ONE hub a Day with no comments, or no followers, etc. . . on that daily list, it should be so painless. Just one hub, cannot take that much time, and then who knows, maybe we would get so much enjoyment from it, that we would want to double it again and again!!
Hey, I just thought of a great idea, after participating in one forum earlier. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/52153what if instead of allowing all hubbers to automatically publish hubs after they're...
I have been on hubpages for some months now and I have published 8 articles now. I have seen people get followers after writing fewer articles than me. Even after all these months I have failed to get even a single...
I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our...
I'm still brand new to HubPages, and there is going to be a pretty big learning curve here I can tell already, so the 30/30 may be a little out of my depth at the moment. However, I'd be more than happy to take part in...
You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work....
