Are there times when you get a little envious of other hubbers who get a lot of comments and views?
It's a bitter truth that not everybody gets to be successful in Hubpages (or at least, not yet). So, have you encountered feeling a little envious of other hubbers success? And how do you deal with it?
Believe it or not, I do not envy. Much more I swear myself for not doing enough to reach the same (at least).
I wouldn't say that I get envious exactly but sometimes I wonder how some of them do it. I know it depends a lot on the quality of your hubs but some people seem to be extra popular.
I don't get envious, I get inspired and excited by the fact that it is achievable! The hubbers who have great successes have worked hard for what they have achieved and they are proof to everyone else that if we too work hard, our efforts will bring positive results!
Although I have to admit this hub has me in envy 34000 comments!
I actually take the time to read those hubs and comments, to see what I can learn from people who are successful here. Usually the hubs speak for themselves and I'll comment myself and follow the person. There are many better writers than me out there, and I'm always very flattered when any one of them leaves a comment on one of my hubs. It's great to meet with great writers and read their work, it can only improve mine and contribute to my own success which surely only comes as the result of a lot of hard work.
So my answer is no, I don't suffer with envy. I use it as an inspiration!
No, I really am not envious because I am not really aware of that other hubbers are doing. I guess I am not that community minded. I hub hop, do my own work and give little thought to other's success or failure - although I wish them the best.
Haven't felt envious at all. Some have already said that some hubbers are more popular than others which is probably true. It's the same in life, some people are more popular than others but that's mainly down to their personality.
I am new here so I read the work of the successful and attempt to learn from them. I put a great deal of effort into my hubs and hope in time to find an audience.
i just look at them in awe but not necessarily feel envious. Subconsciously, I develop a mindset to improve my hubs to get to that perfect hit.
Im happy for whatever success I achieve and feel likewise for other hubbers. We as a whole should focus on our triumphs and share others. Its what being a community is about.
I don't have time to feel envious. Time spent feeling envious is time not spent working on my own hubs or any of my other projects.
I actually love reading/commenting those successful hubs, I call myself a beginner in writting articles. So I like to think I'm learning something from those, they wol me
Ah, yeah sometimes that is a pain in the mind. So what I do is try to see why they are so popular and well liked, maybe even follow their hub and learn from them or something. What can you do? Improve my language skills, improve my keyword picking skills, non-stop improvement, kaizne theory.
I am still new here, but getting jealous already.
My solution is to ask a lot of useful questions and write good articles and hope I get many comments.
The hubs with lots of comments are well written and interesting

Are comments a reliable indicator of success of a hub?Do comments received represent how successful a hub is? Is it a good and reliable indicator of a successful hub? When is it a good indicator?

they are? Why do these same people attack those who have a high level of success? Why are they threatened by those who are ambitious & want to improve their lives? Is it the crab in the barrel mentality? What makes THE HAVE NOTS hate the HAVES? Only intelligent, logical...

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

Has anyone received hateful or derogatory email from another hubber? What did you do? I woke up with one this morning, while it is perfectly just to disagree with one's view on a subject, I don't believe it needed to be taken as far as "this hubber" did. Yes, I reported it to...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...
