    What motivates you to comment on a hub?

    Everyone has differing interests, some hubbers may be driven by imagery, others by a mere titles insightful appearance, and many by a combination of both.  What's your motives for leaving a juicy comment on someone's hub or hubs?

    comments are left when i see any content that inspires me to read it. i believe that as a courtesy we should leave comments.

    Hello CloudExplorer!
    You are right, there are many reasons to leave a comment. Frankly, I think most of my comments can be classified into 3 reasons.
    1) I know the author and have enjoyed their work in the past and desire to encourage them or perhaps just to thank them for their work.
    2) I don't know the author but their subject matter is of interest to me and again I hope to encourage them to continue and/or to say thank you.
    3) Sometimes I hub surf as an exploration into our community and I leave comments to encourage new hubbers or hubbers that intuitively, I feel could use some encouragement!

    In any of the cases above it is my heart to let the writer and their readers know how grateful I am for the privilege of reading their  work, for their time and to let them know anything can happen if they keep trying!

    Thank you CloudExplorer, I am grateful to you as an involved hubber and someone with purpose!!

    Peace be with you!

    Simply to show appreciation to the author. If I found his/her hub useful, I would definitely drop a comment.

    A hub that stimulates me, whether it an intellectual stimulation, mental or emotional. If the hub is boring, even if I know the author, I would feel like a liar if I left a comment, so I have to like the hub to comment.

    I need to
    1. find the subject interesting
    2. like the writing style
    3. like the layout of the page.
    If an hub dos not have bold text, spaced paragraphs, or other ways to make the reading easy, I skim a lot, and even if it's an interesting subject, I'd feel like a liar leaving a juicy comment.
    I usually leave comments on hubs that make me go "I wish I wrote that".

    If it is really interesting, if I disagree, if I totally agree, and if it was useful.

    pretty simple answer, the question interests me or it is a question out of the ordinary that I simply can't go without replying to.

    Firstly I'm happy to leave a nice comment if I enjoy the way it's written. Close to this is the way it has been set out.
    And if I'm following the Hubber - I sort of pull for them, support them.
    I love original material, something that strikes me as special the second I lay eyes on it.
    I hub hop and am surprised how few hubs really grab me enough to stop and read them  to the end , but when I do, it's great to comment on them.

    Well, I will if the writing is good, and I will compliment what appears to be working in many cases.  It is rarely a criticize, and that is only when it makes me angry enough to get a head ache!  If I am particularly interested in a subject and have a question or a general comment as well, I will comment.
