    Hi all, I have published three hubs yet have had no comments. Is this because they are no good or just not interesting enough! Please advise as I enjoy writing them but it seems pointless if no one is interested. Thanks, Dave

    Join in the forums and get to know people, then they are more likely to notice your Hubs. 

    Creative writing doesn't earn well anywhere on the internet, and won't get much attention from search engine visitors.  If your goal is to improve your writing, you may be better off on a creative writing site like storywrite, where there's no pay but the objective is to give and receive feedback.

    My feedback on your Teddy story - I felt you were telling this story from the outside, whereas it would have been so much more effective if you'd got inside Teddy's skin.  I don't mean using "I" - you can get inside his skin while still using "he". 

    If you could really imagine yourself as Teddy and tell the story from his point of view, then you'd start to have a powerful tale, IMO.

      Hi Marisa, thanks for the feeback, I will take that on board. I will look at storywrite as well. That may be my better option as I do not have the time to keep churning out articles to make hubs to make money... if that made any sense! I love the community feel here though so I dont think I will abandon it all together. Thanks again, Dave

    The creative writers are always a treat here, as it does show people are still creative. But most traffic viewed here is from search engines, and sadly no one really searches what you wrote about.

    Being active in the forms will get other Hubbers to notice you here, and other hubbers are in fact the best commenters around due to the fact there writers like yourself.

    If you do wish to make money here, you need to really step up and write like it, just because your writings are about something people are searching for, don't mean you can't fill the text with passion!
