I'm a relatively new Hubber, so I am not sure of what expectations are around this community, other than to get somewhat involved, predominantly as a writer.
I think one of the expectations is to read the material of other Hubbers.
To honest, I have read very little of anyone else's material. And only because that particular writer read what I wrote and commented.
That was over three months ago when I submitted my first post. I haven't read anything on HubPages since.
I've a broad range of interests I am sure are covered somewhere in HubPages, but I never bother to look or read, largely because I go to HubPages to write. And there is enough to read on the internet just getting from one site to another.
I write what comes to mind. As I am learning to write for a real audience, I am doing a great deal of experimenting with different topics and styles. Waiting for feed back that doesn't come. This is unfortunate because this is how we learn, from feedback,
So this is what the real challenge may be for me, and may be for you, if you are struggling.
People who produce anything need feedback, even if they are just digging a ditch. Is is deep enough? Wide enough? Am I doing it fast enough?
Writers I am sure are no different.
The ones who will do well here may be part of a community within a community, following one another and providing feedback.
No matter though, the body of work does get bigger with each post and sooner or later I will achieve my objectives. I am in no hurry.
By the way, even though I receive no comments or feedback, I have written and published a dozen or so pieces (also unpublished a few). The number of views/reads tells me a great deal as far as where other people's interests may be and whether or not they liked it or not. Good material rarely gets ignored.
I'm not sure, but I would think I might be a fairly typical Hubber when it comes to
writing, and especially when it comes to reading other people's material.
Sorry, I tend to get long winded and something I need to fix.
