Do you think it is important to comment on a hub if you have read it?


I've read that some hubber's read hubs but do not leave comments. On person said be assured I read your hubs even when I don't comment. I don't get it. I think it is courtesy to comment if you read someone's hub. Unless, of course, you see nothing to comment about. Do you comment on the hubs you read?

    Michele, I also ask questions and will point out the strengths I see in the writing.

    When a hub speaks to me I want the author to know the power and impact their words had on me.

    I agree there are times there is nothing to say. Thanks!

    Good point innerspin, we can see how our hubs are doing and how many people are reading them through the stats. But it is also very helpful to know when something you write touches someone on some level.

    Hi DrMark, no, I do not leave comments on a poorly written hub, one with factual mistakes, misspelled words etc., unless the author requests feedback.

    The comment 'great hub' is NOT helpful to anyone. Comments need to be honest and helpful

    Good perspective Rosana, The comment 'know that I am reading your hub' seems illusive.' How can we know a certain person is reading if there is no comment? I'd not considered the shy, I thought all writers love words & use them to express themsel

    You've got a point breathing .. we couldn't possibly answer the comments of all the people who read our hubs ... somehow that helps balance the picture. Thanks!

    Gary, I also leave detailed feedback. I agree it helps the hubber to know how their words impact the reader but if I read a hub that leaves me with nothing ... I do not share .. that would be deceitful and not helpful. Thanks!

    I agree with you duffsmom, I am open to hub writers critiques. Not all writers are open and unless they say so, I'll pass the hub without comment.
