    What style of hubs do you like best?
    Do you like storytelling, funny hubs, more informative lecturing kind of hubs, or personal opinions, accounts of personal experience?

      I like personal experiences plus funny hubs, I am not too fond of long hubs that are more like a lecture than a hub but thats just me.

        I was about to write exactly the same thing, but thought I'd save time and just quote BC.  All kinds of hubs have their uses but in terms of enjoyment: funny and personal, not sure I ended up saving much time there actually.

      For me the style does not matter, as long as I'm interested in a certain topic then I'll be happy to read and comment if I have something nice to say.

    My favorites tend to be the ones that introduce me to something I don't know about - there are some with, say, photographs of cities or other places with information about them.  I also like some personal-experiences/stories Hubs.

    I think, though, if the above are "Hubber friendly", I'm not writing very Hubber-friendly Hubs most of the time.  smile  I aim to either write "informative" (for Google purposes) or else "helpful" (trying to share what I've learned from personal experiences).  I've answered lots of requests, which means writing about what someone else asked, rather than either what Google or Hubbers may "like".  I'm guilty of writing long Hubs, and even though I don't have a "lecturing" personality, I suspect my writing comes across that way.   smile  Maybe I'll try to find a way to write "informative-but-fun" Hubs for the next few, and see what happens.   smile  (That's not going to be easy for me.)

    I don't know that I like a particular "style" necessarily. If I had to try to pinpoint it would look something like "I like the way Darkside writes because I love his subject matter." It doesn't really mean much. I enjoy badco and cindyvine's comedy and Janetta can get me rolling in the aisles. LondonGirl has some really excellent stuff and so does Uninvited Writer. But not all of them have the same essential style and they don't write the same "kinds" of hubs, either!

    In my case, I think those articles with the most hubpage traffic are what I'd consider my better writing--followed by informative hubs which give readers a chance to also express their views--followed or tied with the artsy stuff.

    However, outside traffic trends are a little different--how to's and recipes, ie, seem more popular.

    Good writing--and especially literary good writing like essays are always going to get traffic and probably please both hubpage and outside sources. But for me at least, that takes the most time to create.  And I simply do not have the energy/time to do that kind of writing consistently.

    Lisa HW - I just read sth I've not heard about before  and even if I had I wouldn't have believed it. Interested in snake wines? Try checking with lbtrader. As for the what you said about your hubs, I feel totally the same about myself. I strive to do my best not to sound like I was telling people the thing, but it's not easy. I guess, I'm gonna enjoy your hubs NOW!!!

    Everyday Miracles - I like JamaGenee a lot plus I enjoy poetry from Tom Rubenoff and proverbs from k@ri. And a lot of other hubbers, of course.

    Lita - I know what you mean. I should learn more about SEO, but wherever I look there are no certainties, only a lot of guesswork. Maybe i'll buy a book on the subject.

    I think i like writing better than reading or maybe i read so much when i'm researching that i have no reading energy left to go hubbing.

    If i had to describe my style i'd say that i like preaching. Don't get me wrong, i'm not religious and belong to no church but i think i am spiritually aware and it probably comes out in my writing.

    It's all because of the countless hours i spent researching 2012. I haven't got a clue what 2012 will be but i have read some darn good stories and some very convincing ones.

    Que Sera Sera......

    I like my snakes though they bug the heck out of me.

    I'm long winded at times....

    I like to read stuff that is deep and makes one think outside the box....i sometimes wonder what the male to female ratio is for hubbers. I don't like to read girlie stuff, like stuff about panty hoses....however i like to read about the mentality of the girl in the pantyhoses......

    I'm long winded and sometimes say very little.

    I think to me it means Hubs that are friendly, and ones that don't make u feel that Rules are associated, such as not butting in not following protocol, just Hubs that are a Blast, you will find that these Posts or rather those that get them get way more comments, because people love to chat.
    Give me a friendly Host over a boring sanctimonious one any time.

      Sorry to sometimes write hubs like that. I know what you mean and I agree that sometimes they are a nuisance. smile

      Eaglekiwi - Similar here. smile

      cindyvine - Acknowledged. smile

      ysdata - then, you are my favorite kind of hubber. thanks smile

    I wander the hubs like Im in a library ,depends on my mood and interests what I may feel inclined to read .
    If I lose interest I flick to the Forums for a quick scan and get some tips.
    Then its off to dunkin doughnuts (j/k)

    I like easy ,straight to the point hubs and if its an informational type hub ,thats easy to understand even better.

    Hubber friendly content must be easy to understand with some visuals.  Keep the jargon for your workplace and entertain us!

    I'm interested in learning. I'm always looking for information and my interests are wide ranged, but if I search for something on the internet I'm forever off on tangents that is why I really appreciate a well written informative hub. However I also love to laugh so anything written with a sense of humor gets my thumbs up too.
    Since I joined hubpages 2 years ago my 'to-read-books' pile is growing and growing as there is a mega-ton of great reading material here that was written by hubbers.
