    Why do my hubs do so bad?  Is my writing that bad?

    Norma, I just scanned your hub list and read a couple (Presidents, Civil War and one of the dog hubs).

    1. Platforms -  Because you write about pets, I'm surprised you don't have more readership.  Usually that is a Top 5 view getter.  Do you link to social media. Twitter and FB are enormously powerful for hubs. I use them and get a lot of views after I post on Twitter. I still don't have 50K views, but I do see an uptick over the past 5 months since I've been on Twitter. 

    2. You don't seem to be following a lot of people. I try to follow hubbers who write interesting material and who I feel are high quality.  And I also try to support new hubbers. You don't have to follow everybody. I just use an unofficial criteria.

    3. Regarding your Presidents hub, I do have a couple of suggestions. Let me know and I can email the ideas through HP.

    Keep writing. The topics are interesting. I've only been a dog owner a couple of years, so I'm still learning.

      Thanks.  I am new and lost here.  I will try to get more friends.  Please send me your suggestions.  I would love to hear from you.
      Thanks

    Norma, I don't wish to be 'nit-picking,' but even the question has a grammatical error.  It should read, "Why do my Hubs do so badly?"

    Not to say I don't make grammatical errors as well.  And as these Hubs are scanned by computer and not by actual humans, word for word, I don't suppose it matters that much.

    Hub Pages seem to want 100% perfection.   Frankly, they ask a lot for what little one gets in return.  But it is a platform in which we can actually communicate with one another.  So keep writing, Norma.   Every reader you get is a commendation.
