    What type of hub do you prefer to read? Humorous, how-to, advice, entertainment, etc.?
    What draws your eye more often and which do you look for?

    I dunno really. I just lurch around hubpages like a drunken bum.

    I'll go away Janetta and try to come back with something approaching intelligence smile

      I thought about it Janetta. I'm like a drunken bum.

      I know that's not quite as intelligent as maybe you or I had hoped but at least I'm now approaching the vertical again.



      Yes big_smile

        Put in such a nice day at the vodka spout she woke up still in a stupor. ;P

        I like to read various things...I dunno, I browse through many Hubs. I generally read anything based on its topic and what its about and how the Hubber puts ish together.

      No Shreekrishna, 'fraid not. Such objectives require more than one brain cell.

      I have one less than two. I am also still semi-inebriated from a night on the tiles last night.

      Therefore I'm honest. And unashamed as to what I do on Thursday evenings. Because kerb-crawling has a whole other meaning when you mix vodka with innocuous amounts of a rather good red wine smile

        P.S.S. Red wine makes me not feel good in the morning.

    I'm attracted by a catchy title and then will only read the whole hub if the first paragraph grabs me.  I have quite eclectic tastes and will read anything if it hooks me.

      What "hooks you?"

      I know how to write. What aggravates me is that sometimes I don't do what I know is right. We aren't talking morality here, we're talking about writing. So I guess that somewhere in the back of my mind it isn't such a big deal.

      I wonder, are some of my hubs beginning to fail because they aren't drawing people in? Or are they failing because they aren't catchy enough?

    I enjoy reading areas I don't really know about or specific areas (poets). Expand my knowledge base and style of writing. I like those that write like I am sitting right there smile

    Seems most everybody is pretty eclectic. I am too, I guess, but my faves are the funny ones. I enjoy anything helpful on topics I am interested in though.

    Most of the time I go looking for hubbers rather than hubs. I also like the funny ones most smile

    I really enjoy informative hubs that have a story with them.

    Robertsloan2 has some good examples of this, with his art.  Frieda Babbley and Tom Rubenoff  also are excellent this way. 

    I am also enjoying LondonGirl's historical hubs.  They are well arranged, good graphics, and plenty of information -- almost too much for one sitting.

      I agree with Christa, Frieda & Tom are brilliant hubbers, however Often I just browse around for interesting topics hub to hub. But I do read & very often comment on a hub I like. I feel positive comments truly act as a boost to the writer
