For me I came on here cos I wanted to see if people actually like I'm writing. So the more people who actually read the stuff, the happier I am. For me, thats the reward.
I feel the same way , except I dont really know if they read my hubs unless they say so..mind you , Im the same , read some , sadly forget to read some...life huh
I feel much better when some one make comments on my hubs rather than only joining as a fan.The most important to me is how a person
reacts with my thoughts.
I came to hubpages to get my stuff read. I am very happy to see a new fan, or a good comment. I am more interested in my reads than my Adsense account.
ha ha ha...To the lake of fire and brimestone with Adsense!
Well this is a huge deal for me, i have not met any hubber in person still feel like i know them. There is a connection through the fan base. Ok the truth is love them and more importantly when you get a comment from them on a hub it is an acknowledgement that hey we are around. I could have never known so many names online ever, this is my first community online and love it.
I like it when peole become my fan AND leave me feedback about a hub. That way I know they are a real fan.
although I have listed about 200 fans, there are very few actually comment on my hubs,,,,,, but I can never get to all the ones I have fanned either....
Fiery is one of most loyal fans to date......
Its nice to know. I always check out their profile to have an idea of who they are and leave some comments on their Hubs after reading a few. Its also nice when they leave comments on my Hub - very encouraging.
When I get a new fan it feels really awesome, to know that someone likes my writing that much!
However fans who leave fan mail and actually showed me they read my hubs mean a lot more to me then people who just fan. Leaving comments on a hub then fanning is the same way, very encouraging and it shows the took the time to read my work.
I love love love love when I get a new (real)fan. I am beginning to be able to tell the real fans from the people who hope youll fan them back, or are just clicking stuff to get a higher score. Those people do not make me happy, but they dont bother me either. I hope they get what they are looking for.
ALSO......I have become a fan of lots of people. I do not become a fan, unles I mean it. I do not post nearly as many comments as I want to. I read stuff, sometimes I am at a loss for words, sometimes its all been said, soemtimes my computer crashes. My point is, dont assume a fan means less just because they dont comment.
It's a great feeling to get new fans. It's like I get to be a mini-rockstar for writing whatever comes to mind.
Sing, dance around naked, and slide on the floor to music.... JOKE!!!!
I agree it is nice to have a comment on one's hub in connection to being a fan, but I also think if someone wants to disagree and rate you down, there should be a comment as to why so I might be better able to communicate my hub.
makes me feel pretty darn good when i get a new fan! means someone out there enjoys my writing. will probably never make any money from it, but that's ok didn't really expect to, just having a great time meeting new people, reading their hubs and coming up with my own.
I feel complimented while keeping in mind, too, that not all fans fan for "the right reasons". Lots of times, though, you can tell which ones seem "genuine" and which have other motives.
I'll tell you this...Fans are indeed great, but I find that comments are better, especially when the person encourages you to continue with your endeavors...Writers and creative people alike are so needy and so require feedback to fuel their impetus.
I feel accomplished. When I sign on and see there are new fans, I say to myself...its finally happening! Kinda like one feel when they get something done. Slow process, but, I will get there one day

This jus doesnt make sense to me....I spent countless hours faning people and writing sincere comments about their hubs, but I just dont seem to get the love back..am I the only one that notices this? And if im not can someone please give me an explanation as to why people do this.......God, you...

Does it bother you when you put tons of work into a Hub and nobody comments on it?
by Linda Forshaw 8 years ago
I recently read a hub about ouija boards. I would have liked to comment on the hub only it seemed I couldn't because I wasn't a fan of the author. I don't intend to become a fan - not being exceptionally choosy here - just didn't agree with the philosophy behind the hub - but I would...

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

What if you just go down the list of all hubbers and automatically fan everyone. I know in a lot of sites this is considered a negative thing to do and it will drop your reputation or whatever. What happens to fan whores on hubpages? Someone who knows please tell.

Do you delete hub comments that are very generic if it appears the commenter hasn't read the hub?I notice my more popular hubs will get comments left that are just generic like "this was great thanks". I have started deleting these comments because they don't add anything meaningful...
