Do you notice that once you fix one sleeping hub more tend to crop up?


It seems every time I get around to updating a hub so it can be active and taken off the sleeping status, two or more hubs miraculously have fallen asleep. Is HP trying to keep me more active? Or is it just a coincidence? Very freaky nevertheless. What would account for this phenomenon?

    I agree. While many of the sleeping hubs are either recipe hubs or very specific ones about literature, they can certainly use revision and updating or another picture or the like.

    Of my 78 hubs I think I am at 4 or 5 that are idling. But I was upset when I updated one and 2 more replaced it. Thanks for the encouragement!

    That is probably what happened. But the progression was just odd to me.

    I thought the same thing. These hubs were getting some traffic, especially at the start of the fall semester with some of my topic focus and then they just started going one here and one there. Then like 3 or 4 at a time.

    You are better than me. Even though I know purging parts that may not be helpful, I cannot bring myself to delete a whole hub. I do find revising them is useful. But it seems I will need to dedicate a day to revision alone.
