Should we have a personal challenge to view and comment on Hubs?

    Maybe 100 Hubs within 5 days.  It could be a nice boost, especially for any new people.

      When I was new here I used to make an effort to read and comment on hubs. Not a big quota, but I'd spend some time on it whenever I logged in. I think it's useful for newbies because some of the people will then check out some of their hubs.

      It's no great advantage, but the social aspect and seeing a few views on your hubs gives a little encouragement until Google starts sending people your way.

      Now I only read a hub if I see an interesting looking one in my feed.

      I try to comment on new hubber hubs if they seem to have potential.
      I know I was greatly encouraged by the first few people who commented on mine.
      You have a nice idea there, but I hope my comments come from a natural inclination to encourage, more than an obligation to meet  certain quota.  If people want to challenge themselves to be more encouraging, that's great! I hope some people take your suggestion as a personal challenge.

        I think the suggestion was to comment on 100 hubs--  not to write 100.

          Yeah I didn't read it properly. Whoops!

      What a nice friendly, warm, welcoming idea. I love checking out the work of people who write here, and try to leave comments when I can. It's more of a random thing, not sure I could commit to reading 100 in five days.

    I could not achieve that goal and write as well. I do read several Hubs, or parts of Hubs, from newcomers each week and offer advice. But, I'm a slow reader and 20 Hubs a day would leave no time for important stuff such as watching old George Carlin clips on YouTube and kitty cat videos.

    As others have said, views and comments from other Hubbers make very little difference in the scheme of things.   Although I enjoy socialising on the forums, I never worry about whether other Hubbers are viewing my Hubs.

    If there was a way to set up a challenge so we were able to comment ONLY on the Hubs of newbies, who need Hubber traffic to get them motivated, that might be a different thing.

    I'm not really interested either in what others have to say about my hubs.

    However, I did quite a bit of spam more than once this week on one of my hubs from someone. This person was trying to market their debt consolidation, debt settlement, and get out of debt program. That's real chutzpah! I’m glad that I have the option of accepting or rejecting this stuff.

    100 comments, not hubs.  I just figured people would appreciate someone stopping by and commenting.

      I wish I had time to READ more hubs by other authors. I just like to keep up with who is writing about what. Making so many corrections makes us use our time differently. I also used to check hubs that were written by others in my niche, to be sure we weren't duplicating.

      I liked the old hub hopper, before it required us to be English teachers. And we don't get notifications of new work by those we follow anymore, right?

    It's a nice gesture, I know I was thrilled when I received my first few comments, but it's tough to read through so many articles. I would only view ones that shared my interests tbh.
