Why are we here? Not talking meaning of life stuff. Simply, what is the point to posting hubs?
Okay, yes, we are all here because we writers. But, what is the purpose of this forum? Generally speaking, I relish in support, positivity, and encouragement. Yet, to grow and improve my skills in the craft, I need constructive criticism...something I've rarely, if ever, seen given &/or received on HP. My fear is that when we constantly pat each other on the back about how fabulous every hub is, we do ourselves--and others--a disservice, as it allows for complacency. It doesn't challenge us to reach for more within ourselves as writers. Am I alone in this feeling?
Well, if the moderators don't care for your hubs - you'll get a notification for sure. Also, anyone else could flag something for a good reason as well.
Are you ASKING for critical review??? If so, and you think that your hubs could be improved upon and you would like someone to tell you about how to do so then The Extreme Hub Make Over forum is where you can ask!
I don't know about you but I definitely have had some honest feedback for my work. Some persons have been so good to me that they have emailed me with suggestions on how to improve or change what I have written to suite HP and or make myself more marketable.
I find the forums really positive, whenever I ask a question there I usually get the answer I am looking for.
I feel that sometimes the comments on the hubs might not be as honest as I am looking for but I have a couple of followers who will tell me point blank what problem they have with my work. There is a follower I have, whenever he does not comment on a hub, I know he is not particularly interested in it.
I, on the other hand try to be as honest as possible in my comments and will point out any errors I find in the hubs I read. I will not comment on a hub I find boring or poorly written if there aren't really any noticeable flaws in it.
Trips, I don't think that you're wrong at all, but I don't know that HP is the place for challenge. Submitting material to other sites and periodicals that have a strict submission and competition allows us to challenge ourselves. Should we find ourselves lacking we can come back here and express our concerns to the community and ask for assistance. But all in all, I think that you're right on the money.

From a non-religious point of view: What in your opinion is the meaning of life?If you feel this question can't be answered without a religious beleif please don't answer. I am interested what people think the meaning of life is from a more philosophical point of view.Thanks!

Can YOU read between the lines? Do you understand what is actually been said when you read something?A few days ago, I wrote a post entitled, “Your freedom comes at my expense” and gave three examples. At the end of each example, I asked the question, “Is he right?”Virtually everybody who...

Where is the take-off point on HubPages? i.e. Where does sustainable growth happen?I'd been told, "Oh, once you hit about 30 Hubs, you keep getting more and more followers and hits," or some such. Well, I passed that within a couple of weeks. I should be writing number...
