Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?


I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with your answers.

    Definitely not super dumb, Mary! I think it's up to the author to make it engaging, especially if they're super intelligent. Thanks for a great answer.

    I can understand that. I tend to look for some sort of positive in the writing or the subject or just put forward my own experience of something relevant. Thanks for your comment.

    I totally agree with your opinion on, and reaction to, those who don't answer readers who've taken the time to comment. They don't help themselves, though; fewer people will read their hubs consequently. Interaction helps us all. Thanks for answering

    I quite agree, Theresa. I've had a few new followers recently who've also said they've read my hubs, but no comments at all! Are they just chalking up the numbers? Never mind! Those whom I care about support me & tell me if I'm wrong. Thanks

    Comments certainly do make a difference because when you interact with someone it often starts up a conversation and that gets people interested in you and your hubs; a spin-off, you might say! Thanks for answering.

    Exactly! It's all about respect, courtesy and encouragement. If we don't know what people think, even if they vote, then we can't learn how to write better, how to talk to our audience. Thanks so much for answering.

    I leave a comment whenever I can. Sometimes, like others here have said, it's not easy to find a positive but then I say something like 'Good ideas' or something equally vague. I don't correct but send the odd email.
