    Should Hubbers read, rate, and comment on at least as many other Hubbers' Hubs as they write?

    I think they should BUT if they're writing all the time they might not have the time to read other's work.
    It's from them that I'm learning how this works.

    I think they should read, rate, and comment on at least as many hubs as they write. It's a good way to build an audience and get to know your fellow hubbers.

      It's also a way of sharing and being helpful.

      I agree and that's what I do. Beginning September, when I start working full time, there's no way I could do as our host suggests.

      For anyone writing 3-4 Hubs per day, they don't have much time for commenting and reading.  But a Hub a day, a Hub a week? Join the party.

    Not only is commenting and sharing others Hubs a great way of encouraging other writers, it's also a surefire way of getting more traffic to your own Hubs as well. So yes, commenting on as many Hubs as you can (as long as they're good, insightful comments - not just one word replies, I don't think they would have the same effect) is a great idea. Participating in the Hubpages community in other ways such as the answers section and the forums is also a good idea.

    One of the best things about HubPages is that we can check out other's work and comment.  I love learning new things and also how people set up their hubs.  I have learned a lot, commented a lot.  I usually comment on at least 30 per day.

    Now that I am not working and I'm home with my newborn I've set a daily goal of reading at least 3 hubs a day and commenting. I think it is a great way for people to learn about things, see other points of view on some topics and really connect with others who share a passion for writing. I would hope that by being part of the HubPages community and making the effect to help others with their writing or just encouraging them that some would do the same for me.

    I try to read and comment on all the hubs that come up each day written by people I'm connected to, but it's very difficult to find the time, so sometimes I just read them very quickly and click on 'interesting', 'beautiful', etc. or I'd get no writing done for the whole day. It is a problem, isn't it?

    I think it's a good thing to do but I don't think it should be a condition of hubbing.  At the moment my output has dropped so it's easy to read others' writing.  However, it takes much longer to write a hub than it does to read one so I would think we could read 2 to every 1 of our own!  Good question.
