The Results Are In

Several of you were curious about the results of the survey that I posted on my last hub, Hubber Help. So after a few days of collecting data, here are the results.

A total of 13 people answered the first question dealing with the length of hubs. Do you prefer longer hubs with a thorough discussion of the topic or shorter hubs that summarize leaving room for self-thought and evaluation? With almost a two to one ration, the shorter hubs won weighing in at 62% versus 38% for the longer, more thorough hubs.

The question involving article types was much more varied. The question, would you prefer articles that are fiction, non-fiction, counseling oriented articles, apologetics, or theology based articles settled out this way: 0%--fiction; 17%--non-fiction; 33%--counseling articles; 17%--apologetics; 33%--theological articles. 12 people voted in this poll.

Out of the eleven people that voiced their opinion to the next question, 73% would rather read a single hub addressing a single topic compared to 27% preferring a series of hubs addressing different facets of a single topic.

The time spent reading hubs broke down this way: 25% stopped by HubPages more than once a day; 17% once a day; 42% more than once a week;17% once a week; 0% less than once a week.Twelve people took part in this poll.

I also appreciate all the helpful comments that were left. In many ways the comments added to the poll itself. As one pointed out, I need to follow God in my writing. I feel I've always tried to do that, but of course, that's the way it has to be so I don't make any promises that my hubs will always follow the poll results.

Now I need to go back through my hubs and see how they line up with the results that you shared. Thanks for the time you all took to get involved. I appreciate it so much.

I am very impressed that you are taking the time to research for results. I think many of us (like me) could learn a lot from your poll. So, I want to thank you!

I read a lot, a variety of topics, and I personally can say that my interest is held better when I know that chapters and paragraphs are kept to a very minimum. If that makes any sense. Overall, I can learn from the questions you have asked.

DeBorrah,

Thanks for the visit. I'm working on improving. Sometimes it's just slower than I'd like it to be.
