Yes, I have. ( and I don't have G mail) but I do try to check hubtivity often and My favorites, and those who are responding to mine. It's a little crazy, but I think it will slow, and it will be an overall good thing. My mailbox tends to fill quickly, but I'm going to do try to delete my unimportant mail more often.
I knew it was going to happen. was one of my first concerns. I left mine on. I just worry that I'll delete something I shouldn't, like an important one from a literary agent. fat chance of that probably this month anyway.
I don't really use the email notification to tell me when you have. I really go through the hubtivity for the day when I come back from being out. I keep up pretty good. It's sometimes a struggle between reading and writing.
Yep that's why I'm not doing the challange. My writing is bad enough without working to a deadline. I am like Charlie, left my mail on and just skim through all the junk ones. (come on folks admit it there are junk ones, shame on all you so called 'writers' you sacrificed your reputations for the sake of glory). Oh and all that money your gonna make. lol
Phew thank goodness I am doing the challenge under a new login name! I would be fairly annoyed to loose my 1000 fans ! I must admit its not something I'd thought of! Though I can see it would be pretty boring getting 5 or 6 hubs in row all on a very similar topic
I'm actually very pleased this came along cause it gave me the shove to split my public real me and the niche marketing stuff I do.
No one in their right mind wants to comment on a string of hubs all written around a very similar set of keywords- but from a search engine point of view its fine - but the people who find my news from google will probably only read one and then go and check out the eBay offers (I hope!)
I said the challenge would just mean good people would write crap, in a wild attempt to make up the given amount of Hubs, I have spammed the lot, and just manually check the Hubs of those I consistently enjoy.
I turned mine off a long time ago. There is one hubber that I fanned that would write ten hubs back to back so I finally decided to just turn it off. If I really want to see, I will look in on my faves from time to time. I do read the hubactivities though.
I'm another one who's turned off the email notifications. And I do think there's been a slip in standards, even among some of my favourite Hubbers. It's the little things - like typo's, spelling mistakes, clunky sentences, overlong paragraphs. The kind of thing they would have fixed if they'd done a more careful edit.
On our individual feeds next to our profile photo we can see if we have new comments to any of our hubs? Would it be possible to also receive notification here of any answers to our posted questions and Fan Mail...
I've been noticing sometimes I'll leave a Hubber a fan mail and it won't get approved. I know there are different explanations for this, like they haven't been on in awhile or maybe they don't want to approve it or want...
The Republicans want to introduce a bill to stop home delivery of mail. Instead they propose the United States Postal Service set up "mail hubs" or in other words, designated areas with clusters of mail boxes...
