Read and Comment On Hubs to Get To Know People Better!
1. Read Other Hubber's Hubs and Leave Insightful Comments
By reading other Hubber's Hubs you will get a better understanding of what looks good as far as formatting your own Hubs and you might find some inspiration from another Hubber.
Reading other's Hubs and leaving Insightful comments is a great way to meet new friends and get people to follow you back.
HubPages is a great community with "micro" communities of Hubbers that follow, comment and share each other's Hubs. Leaving Insightful Comments shows the Author Appreciation, allows for Suggestions and Positive Feedback, and is a great opportunity to share what you know and what you think about the topic of a Hub.
Talk With Other Hubbers!
2. Join a Conversation in the Forums
The Forums on HubPages are a great place to meet and engage with fellow Hubbers. There is a Forum on just about every topic imaginable, and if you can't find the Forum you are looking for, you can start your own new Forum Thread! As long as you are respectful of others and follow the HubPages Forum Rules and Guidelines, you can learn a lot and make some new friends!
Just remember that the Internet allows users to remain "anonymous" if they choose to. Always use caution when seeking professional advice as people may not always be who they appear to be. If you stick to fun topics that interest you in the forums, you can enjoy great discussions or "debates" (think politics and religion!) if that is what you enjoy!
