Comments on the hub pages
A good day always begins with a cup of coffee, and comments from your wonderful readers here at the Hub Pages. A comment on the hub pages can really make or break someone's entire day. I have over one hundred wonderful comments to date as I'm writing this hub, and I treasure each and everyone of them. They all really mean a lot to those of us who are writing here on the hub pages for simply entertainment and fun. It's always interesting to see just what someone has left behind in the form of a comment. Some people really put a lot of time and effort into their comments, and believe me those comments are really appreciated. The hub pages even has a commentator accolade with multiple levels, which rewards hubbers for leaving insightful and engaging comments. However you don't want to leave comments just so you can simply receive an accolade.
The reason you should want to leave a comment on a hub is because you truly like what the hub is all about. you may want to tell the hubber just how much you enjoyed what you just read, and to give them some praise. You may want to tell them how funny the hub was, or that it'll really come in handy. You may have used one of the recipes out of a hub, and want to tell the writer how good the dish turned out. You may want to give them some constructive criticism on their hub, however make sure it is constructive. Because you don't want to over do it, and hurt someone's feeling. That wouldn't be beneficial to anyone. Try to be kind with your remarks, as you would want someone to do for you in return. For the most part, the people here on the hub pages are very nice courteous people, but as with everything else in life there's always going to be at exceptions.
Now sure you will get an occasional bad comment, that you don't care for, but that's no reason to get upset. If the comment bothers you that much, then simply just delete it, and move on. Remember you always have the option to delete any comment that you feel is inappropriate or that you don't care for. You also have the option to set up your comment section, where comments won't appear on your hubs until you approve them. This isn't a particularly bad idea when you are writing about a controversial topic for your hub, which might bring the worst out in people. For example I don't think there's any reason at all to pre-approve comments on a hub like this. The worst thing you can do is reply with a negative comment in return, and get into a writing war with the other person. That will just get an argument started, which will benefit no one in the long run. You also may be the one who comes out on the losing end. If the language gets way out of hand, the penalty in the end could even mean being banned from the hub pages, and you don't want that.
Don't forget to leave a comment on the hubs that you feel really deserve one. So the next time you read a hub which you really enjoyed, leave that hubber a few encouraging words. Believe it or not you'll really make somebody's day. Thank you for stopping by and for taking a moment to read this. Have a nice day!
