If I like them yes. If I don't no. Do you feel it's our obligation to comment?
I'd say about 60% of the hubs I read are compelling enough for me to comment. Of course I will comment more on people I follow because their hubs are usually on the topics that I am interested in. But I will respond with comments on any hub that I find interesting, controversial, humorous, or creative and clever. I am always amazed of the talent on hubpages and learn from just about everyone here.
No I do not comment on all the hubs I read yet all hub articles I read I do rate or add a thumbs up !
I do my very best to comment on anything I read that I find interesting. There are times that I simply have a hard time concentrating, and instead of leaving a fake comment or scanning for certain points, I plan to return and read it when I'm in a better state. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen as each day seems to get busier and busier. If I read it and just don't like anything about it, I'll slide out silently.
Hi Rajan, I try to leave at least a line or two of comments, but sometimes there is just so much to catch up on that I just read and vote. If I don't really like the Hub I don't do anything.
Most of the people I follow write Hubs I really like to read (like your own articles on healthy food), so I try to make the time to really read them thoroughly and leave comments.
I only comment on hubs that either specifically ask for my opinion or were created for debate. And only then if I feel the hub has not wasted enough of my time. I do however try to comment on the hubs of people I follow because comments help in the valuing of the hubscore. I've chosen the people I follow because they write on topics I'm interested in and instead of using the hub hopper which is a waste of my time, I read the hubs of people my followers are commenting on as well since they show up in my feed.
I do unless the hub is really bad in terms of writing style, and punctuation. I really only want to comment if I can say something positive. I don't want to publicly criticize a struggling writer.
If I am asked for criticism, then I would contact them privately with my thoughts.
As often as possible ! Music to me is a natural complement to writing and I firmly believe it inspires me. It creates a special mood helpful to writing and fills the blanks when the ideas don't flow as they should
I do comment on all hubs that I read. I like to compliment people on their positive writing attributes. If someone knows they are doing a good job at something in particular then it will help them to do an even better job. I like to hear words of encouragement so I figure I should do the same for others when it is deserved.
Unless the hub is inappropriate or written with poor grammar, I always leave a comment. This is the least I can do when a fellow hubber has taken the time to write a hub that I respond to.
Comments can be helpful not only to the writer but to others who comment. There have been times when the actual comment has been more interesting and useful then the hub itself.
We are a "community" - a "family" and it's important to support, motivate and inspire one another. How else can we do this except by commenting?
The word is the most powerful of all sources. And with our words (comments) we have the power to change someone's entire day and out-look.
Sure, it takes time to write a few sincere words of appreciation. But what better way to spend our time than to be a support system to someone who needs it.
If I had not received the comments left on my first few hubs 2 years ago, I wouldn't be here now. I was scared and unsure of myself. I was just a little "ripple" among a sea of giant waves (great writers.)
I will continue to comment on hubs. And who knows? Maybe I am a bigger wave now with a chance to help another little ripple here on hubpages.
I do not comment on every single hub that I read.....it just depends on how I feel after reading......When I really do identify with the hub that was written and have something encouraging or uplifting to contribute by commenting, I usually do, but if I feel that I have nothing in common with what the article is about, or wouldn't really have anything to share that would be encouraging or helpful, I usually do not comment, however, I sometimes may vote on that hub.
Take care & hope you're doing well my friend!
No. Sometimes because I am on my cell phone when I read them. I usually try to at least vote up or tick on of the intersting etc. categories if I like the hub. When I hop hubs I mostly do not comment unless it is exceptional .
If I choose to read the hub then I comment. I try to pick titles that intrigue me or just are interesting about new stuff. I try to be open and try new topics that have really interested me before. Comments to me are like a shot in the arm. I am always so delighted!!!! Sometimes when I am in a hurry and the topic is kind of unusual I just leave a few lines..not very often...So to answer your question after getting off the subject. Probably 98 percent.
If I read them, I respond to them. I think it's important to give feed back (usually personal experience), rather than 'drop-and-run'. But I'm never 'cruel' when I leave a message. I've seen some nasty ones left on my hubs, and there's just no need for it, that's why I have to approve them BEFORE, they are allow to be left.
Normally, yes. If I took the time to read it, I don't usually see a reason not to leave some kind of comment. Especially because i don't keep reading something unless it's interesting.
where i fell feedback is necessary is pass comment.. in many other cases i comment in appreciation of other hub..! but i dont comment on all the hubs i read..
I don't comment on all the Hubs I read, but where I do I try to add to the debate or knowledge base. If I don't think I can add value that still doesn't stop me voting up and so on if I think the Hub has some merit.
Yeah, I have posted comment almost every hub which is read by me.
Yes, unless I read a really bad hub and then I don’t know what to say (lol). I comment for 3 reasons:
1. Since I have already made the effort and taken the time to read a hub
writing a comment is just another few minutes of my time.
2. I like to encourage writers and as a writer myself I always appreciate it
when someone takes the time to leave a comment for me.
3. I think it’s simply a matter of good manners

Maybe 100 Hubs within 5 days. It could be a nice boost, especially for any new people.

How do you choose the hubs you comment on?

Can a visitor leave a comment on hubs?
by Jim Higgins 6 years ago
Do you make a comment on every Hub you vote "up" after reading?I always do make a comment, even a short one, and just wondered if a lot of people read and vote without comment. Do you ever read and not vote? I have done that occasionally.

Maybe its just me but I realize the work people put into their writing so I comment. Even if its just a thanks for sharing. How about you?
