When people call their Hub a "blog" do you comment on it?


I see people writing about how they are starting a blog here on Hub Pages, and I am tempted to leave a comment that Hub Pages is not a place for blogs, or to send them an email that this is not for blogs, but Haven't. It drives me crazy when I read that though. Do any of you leave comments like that or send them an email message?

    My concern with that is your friends will join HP and start to blog about their personal life or opinions - which will result in them having a bad experience, because they'll have their Hubs unpublished. I usually say I write for an online magazine.

    With you there. While I see a distinction I am fairly new to the format and I find that it is far more appealing to my sensabilities than blogging is-it is more self contained, more disciplined and more focused to me than what blogging is.

    That's a very tactful way to handle it. So many of us put time and effort and research into our hubs, and nothing against blogging because I have a blog myself, but Hub Pages is a totally different format.

    That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of flagging them.

    Hubs don't have email addresses so I wonder if you're misunderstanding something! Make sure you're following the instructions ON HUBPAGES on how to sign up - instructions anywhere else are for people with their own blogs, and don't apply.
