    How often do you click on the buttons, 'Funny' 'Awesome' ect?

    If I like a Hub, I will generally hit the 'Up' button and one of the choices showing I like the hub, even if I don't comment. It seems a lot of people don't, even if they take the time to comment. I wonder why. It seems like an easy way to give good writers encouragement.

    Perhaps, I should.....the truth is that I rarely do.

    I did not come here for points.  I came to find an outlet for the voice inside of me.

    This rating does seem to matter to some, and I am now thinking that perhaps, I should give it greater value.

    It is simply my nature to speak my thoughts, and I thought I was giving encouragement through my commentaries.  It seems that I have held others to the same measure that I give to my self.  When I know, in truth, that others think differently.

    A "rating" is something that I rarely give, to those few, who have recieved one.........take it to heart.  It was meaningful and intentional.
    Maybe, that is the way it was intended to be.

    Undeserved praise and accoladaes are meaningless.  I, myself, do not feel worthy of all I have received here.

    How is the giver, to know, how the receiver regards the gift?

    Lots of times I like the hub, but I don't have anything useful to add to the conversation, so I hit a button, just to show the writer that I read all the way through, and think it was worth writing.

    I usually do what feels more suitable at the moment.

    If it really calls for that emotion that the button is designed for then I use the button.
    Also if it's just a good post but I have nothing to add to it having an option to use the button helps.

    Most of the time I try to give feedback using the comment section, it allows to give more information to the writer.

    Maybe once in five posts that I read. But it all depends if the hub is really worth the click.

    I do it every chance I happen to stumble upon anything in those categories. I've noticed not many people do this and I think of the author and how, like me, they're dying for some feedback or criticism. seriously, it's a let down to spend hours writing a story from the bottom of your heart, and end up not having anyone tell you what it's like. All you get is "(35) people saw this post."
