What's your reason behind commenting to a hub but not following?
I just noticed that there are hubbers who sometimes uncheck the follow checkbox as they comment on a hub, What could be the reason behind this? Is it a good thing, a bad thing, or neither?
neither, it could just mean they are following a lot of stuff already and can't keep up with it all.
I don't want to receive constant notifications. It clutters up my inbox. I can always check my activity and visit the hub if I'm curious. I do try to read and comment on a lot of hubs. This can add up to a lot of notifications if I'm not careful.
too many notifications. I've been unfollowing stuff that's been getting lots of comments.
I hate all the notifications clogging up my email inbox. I had over 150 notifications one day and from that time on I do not follow the hubs. If I forget to uncheck the box, I unfollow as soon as I realize it.
You might see a Hub that is interesting. However, if you check the person's profile page and title of other hubs, you may not have any additional interest, so there is no need to follow.
A lot of people follow almost everyone, hoping they will in turn follow them to get their numbers up.
I want my followers to be readers who read my work and not just a number. I also want to follow people whose work I am going to read and not get an excessive numbers about hubs that do not interest me. There is no disrespect intended in that statement. Everyone is not interested in all subjects. I have one follower who writes some interesting hubs, other are about craft projects, which hold no interest for me.
Neither. I do that all that time. It's mostly because if I have something nice to say about the person's Hub, say what I wanted to say, may check back to see if they approved the comment or said anything, but don't want to be getting notifications every time anyone and his brother makes a comment on that Hub. I keep track of what I do on here in my head, and my own "Hubtivity" serves a good memory-jogger for recent "doings". Other than that, I don't want to get notices about things like comments and forum posts on every Hub/forum thread/question I've posted something on.
I more often than not uncheck the box because you get tons of notifications that clog up the works.

It seems that some people stop reading comments left at a hub after the hub author has responded to whatever comment they've left. This is only a guess because I've read some people's comments (other than the author's responses) and they've brought up something in addition to what was said in the...

I am new to HubPages and still learning my way around - but really enjoying it so far! But I had someone start to 'follow' me and I presume because I didn't follow her back, she 'unfollowed' me. I'm not following anyone right now, just trying to get up and running first and have lots else to do but...

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

Fellow hub bets, pro and amateurOn June 20, I published, in my humble opinion, a darn good hub . . ."How Pubic Hair Helped Lloyd Become a Man." Usually after a day or so, I get comments, but nit this time. I mean, my hub was NOT about or promoting porno or anything bad. Just real...
