If you haven't read any of my hubs DO NOT BECOME MY FAN!!!
This is a huge pet peeve of mine. Whenever I see that I have a new fan I always look at their hubtivity. If I am just one of a long and uninterrupted list of fan additions, I click right off of their profile without reading one more word.
Here's a fan message I just received from the hubber "lovemyself":
"There is a lot of heart and personality in your writings. Thank You."
It is quite possible that this message sounds familiar to you. This is because, for the last few hours, she has been fanning hubbers non-stop with the same exact message.
That fan message is familiar. Oh wait, she's my fan and she left exactly the same message. And I thought she wrote that especially for me *sigh*.
I have already fanned more than 100 people but I make sure I've read any one of their hubs. I've read one of yours. I can see you like horror movies, same movies my husband likes to watch. Any hub on Japanese horror movies?
If I see, someone has become my fan, and I don't have time to read one of there articles, I will join there fan club, but tell them I will look at there articles later. But I will respect your wishes, of not joining till after I read. Thanks
me too I keep joining hubbers fan too but have not read fully there hubs cause they are too many.Maybe I need to set time for them. Meanwhile I appreciate if you become my fan too.
I really do not even pay attention to those things. I usually only add people that take the time to read my hubs, or if I like their hubs too.
I would rather my profile show a big goose egg in my fan section than have 1000 phonies.
I like your hubs though. I add some people when I have not really read their hubs yet, but usually I have to like someone's hubs to add them.
I was referring to Pearl Diver, but I am sure your hubs are great too. I have not really read yours though, but I am sure these are good.
I'm in a pissy mood. I lost my job and I'm having trouble finding a new one.
I just commented on your latest hub, and it was very interesting.
Thanks. (am I okay to say "thanks" now without looking like a total moron?)
Honestly many people say thanks and I think the term moron is overrated. That is just my take on the English language though, I am very divergent that way.
Are there really that many people who dont read hubs?
I have not been here that long but so far my impression as been very positive.
I may become a fan of someone who becomes my fan out of courtesy but I do have a look at what they write and try to find something good to comment on.
I wonder if its a newbie thing to become a fan out of courtesy?
I can say if I read something objectionable or offensive to me I would probably skip the courtesy and not become a fan and maybe even decline or ban such person from being my fan.
I am your fan, Iamadork, and have read your hubs and commented on them, so you have fans that are genuine. Sorry about your job loss; I know it is stressful, hopefully you will be sharing good news soon.
I wouldn't fan anyone so I won't have to worry about these losers. Those that fan people in hope that they will fan you back. (I just got a new fan. )
Sorry to hear you lost your job ,that sucks!!
With the risk of further pissin you off ,can I maybe suggest you try your local newspaper ,no not the classifieds but talk to the editor in person,failing that ,just turn up and volounteer- least it gets ya outta the house ,right!
I wish you the best in your tomorrows
Hey imadork, if I pinch you, will you smile maybe throw in a lollipop?
It's nice to have a few fans, even though it doesn't really mean anything for people who aren't chasing hub traffic.
If I see someone has none, I sign up to them. A vague feeling of belonging helps. But after someone has twenty or so, who cares. As for people with with five hundred fans or people who subscribe to the fan clubs of five hundred people, its just silly.
I'm not going to be reading the output of five other hubbers on a regular basis, let alone five hundred. It's just not practical.
I've just been checking out the same message, it's not unusual for fan freaks to go on a fanning crazy spree, but to actually leave every single hubber the same message as fan mail, lol, she's a step above.
For a moment I genuinely believed that my writing had 'heart and personality', then the ringing alarm bells woke me.

I am really annoyed. I really dont understand whats the point in those hubs. Or are they really allowed in here? The pics are posted mostly by someone from India and I dont know what sort of value is added on hubpages by those kind of hubs.I mean arent there lots of photosharing websites for all...

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are equally good quality articles. What am I doing wrong?!?!

Do you think that any of the hubs you have written are memorable?In other words, do you believe that once someone has read any of your hubs, does anyone remember any of your work? We read so many hubs daily (for the most part), and do we even remember them after we move on to read another hub...

Do you share your hubs with your family--- husband/ wife/ children ? Do they read it with interest?
