    It seems that hubbers take more interest in Q&A activities as compared to writing hubs. Why?

    It seems that hubbers take more interest in Q&A activities as compared to writing hubs. Is there any reasoning behind?

    I think one of the reasons why people seem to participate in Q/A activities more is that this can be a good way how to get some exposure or find some interesting people to follow.

    You post a question - someone responds in such a delightful way that you just MUST know more about this person. So you look into their profile, possibly browse through their hubs, and maybe even send them some comments or start to follow them, if you like their writing. And it all started just by you asking a question. smile

    (Just a note - this was NOT meant as begging for pageviews, tehee!)

    I'm not.  I've answered more than 100 but probably less than 200 questions while.  Current published Hub count is over 1,250. 

    Can't speak for the rest. smile

    I'm not sure this comment is true.  I see hubbers writing many articles every day.  I only answer questions (or ask them) when I want to take a break from writing.

    Because writing Hubs takes a lot of effort.  Answering questions is much easier and less time consuming.   I write hubs when I have a few hours to spare.  I answer questions when I only have a few minutes to spare.

    Some stats: I have written 238 Hubs so far.  Don't know how many questions answered.

    I find the Q & A to be helpful in a few different ways. When I ask a question it is because I would like to know what others think on any given topic. When I read answers from like minded people I then have an opportunity to review their bios and look over some of their articles and hopefully become one of their followers. Finally, if there appears to be an interest in the question asked, then this may be the foundation for writing a Hub around that particular subject. So, in reality, while it may seem as though there is more interest in asking and asking questions, it may very well be just a stepping stone of sorts to create a more involved and time consuming article.

    My work schedule has greatly impaired my hub-writing since joining the site. I will hop hubs or answer questions to try to remain connected to the community. I have also picked up some good suggestions from questions posted as far as time management is that I can perhaps write more hubs and generate more traffic to them.

    I think it must be the personal interest of certain hubbers to choose writing or Q&A.
