Well this is a huge deal for me, i have not met any hubber in person still feel like i know them. There is a connection through the fan base. Ok the truth is love them and more importantly when you get a comment from them on a hub it is an acknowledgement that hey we are around. I could have never known so many names online ever, this is my first community online and love it.
Its nice to know. I always check out their profile to have an idea of who they are and leave some comments on their Hubs after reading a few. Its also nice when they leave comments on my Hub - very encouraging.
When I get a new fan it feels really awesome, to know that someone likes my writing that much!
However fans who leave fan mail and actually showed me they read my hubs mean a lot more to me then people who just fan. Leaving comments on a hub then fanning is the same way, very encouraging and it shows the took the time to read my work.
I love love love love when I get a new (real)fan. I am beginning to be able to tell the real fans from the people who hope youll fan them back, or are just clicking stuff to get a higher score. Those people do not make me happy, but they dont bother me either. I hope they get what they are looking for. ALSO......I have become a fan of lots of people. I do not become a fan, unles I mean it. I do not post nearly as many comments as I want to. I read stuff, sometimes I am at a loss for words, sometimes its all been said, soemtimes my computer crashes. My point is, dont assume a fan means less just because they dont comment.
Sing, dance around naked, and slide on the floor to music.... JOKE!!!!
I agree it is nice to have a comment on one's hub in connection to being a fan, but I also think if someone wants to disagree and rate you down, there should be a comment as to why so I might be better able to communicate my hub.
makes me feel pretty darn good when i get a new fan! means someone out there enjoys my writing. will probably never make any money from it, but that's ok didn't really expect to, just having a great time meeting new people, reading their hubs and coming up with my own.
I'll tell you this...Fans are indeed great, but I find that comments are better, especially when the person encourages you to continue with your endeavors...Writers and creative people alike are so needy and so require feedback to fuel their impetus.
I like comments when they are constructive. If a person is going to be mad because they disagree, they don't have to leave a mean comment out of spite. If a hub needs revision, that is one thing... but mean-ness is not necessary.
This jus doesnt make sense to me....I spent countless hours faning people and writing sincere comments about their hubs, but I just dont seem to get the love back..am I the only one that notices this? And if im not can...
Had trouble sleeping, got up to look at the snowfall here in NY, grab some tea and a cigarette.Sat down to check my mail real quick.WooHoo 7 new comments since I tried to go to sleep 3 hours ago! Nothing...
