Do you share link-love on your blogs

    Ok, I'm not sure if the title makes much sense. But, anyway...

    I'm curious if you guys post links to hubs that you found interesting on your blogs?

    I know that I do, but do you?

    Maybe if hubbers were aware that other hubbers do post links to hubs (other than their own) on their blogs, it may inspire others to design more appealing hubs. I hate to say it, but there are may well written hubs on HP, but not all of them are designed so that readers want to read them. If we reward hubs and hubbers with a little link-love or link-juice, whichever you prefer to use, maybe it will help. 

    I don't know, just a thought....

    Hi Whitney05,
    I have no problem promoting other people's hubs. I have even twittered a couple of other people's hubs. If I enjoy or think someone might enjoy the hub, I try to make it known that there are great hubs here. There is an old proverb that says something about if you want to become successful you need to help others become successful first. Thank you for sharing other people's hubs, it can only add to the community, and I cannot think of how it could harm it.

    I have a few hubber friends and I post links to their hubs because I enjoy their writing.  They also have done the same for me.  I enjoy doing this, but most of the time I only like to do it with people I feel comfortable with.

    There are lots of way to do this-- you can share  and review on Stumbleupon or other sites. On simple thing to do is simply click a thumbs up at the end of a hub you have read-- Sometimes I forget to do this, even when I am thinking "thumbs up" or have commented.

    I have just started linking I guess I should have read updates on HP as I didn't realize until recently that you could search other hubbers pages and link them onto your page, so now I do this on every article. smile

      I have to start...I never thought of it. And I didn't know if we are supposed to ask the original hubber of the article we are linking for  permission....since its theirs. But if its ok then I am game!

    Often I write posts about hubs I like on my blogger blog and my wordpress blog.

    I regularly link to Hubs which I have enjoyed reading around the Web, not just in Blogs. This is a beneficial practise to all concerned as - provided the topic of the Hub is relevant to your Blog or site - your status is improved in Google's eyes for linking to relevant content, your status is improved in the eyes of your site visitors as you are giving them easy access to more information on your subject and the Hubber benefits from the traffic.

    It is truly a win/win situation.

    I'm a late bloomer when it comes to becoming aware of all the non-writing aspects of being on HubPages.  For a long time, I just kind of wrote and didn't know what else people were "supposed to be doing".  Even now, I don't do much with
    Amazon stuff.  Similarly, I'm just now starting ask about what HubMob is.   

    I guess up until fairly recent I was just kind of using whatever spare time I had to write.  I'm of the "pre-Internet" generation, so it has taken me some time to get into "Internet thinking".  It's not that I haven't been using it since it came out, but my generation (Baby Boomer, but a late one I like to point out) didn't grow up "just being naturals" with things beyond e.mailing, basic writing, and shopping (I guess).

    It's actually only since I started coming to the forum (just as a way to take a break from writing) that I started to learn about this other stuff, but before I paid much attention to the forum I didn't realize what kind of information is on here.  So now, I'm learning more about links and that kind of stuff and plan to do that type of thing.  Still, though, I have an overwhelming amount of fixing up/tweeking and a lot of other stuff I need to work on, because I haven't made my Hubs what they really should have been either (again, out of not knowing what I was supposed to be doing).  If someone were so inclined they could probably make a full-time job out of perfecting and expanding their activity on HubPages.   smile  (but now I'll be paying more attention to linking - simply because I'm now more aware of it)
