Do you prefer leaving comments on Hubs, participating in the forums, or answering questions?
I personally like the questions as it allows me to wander through a random assortment of questions as they're asked and respond to them. I don't like having to look through the genres of hubs or forums.
For me it's both leaving comments on hubs and answering questions. I stay far away from those arguments on the forums.
Yes I do when I have the time as I work a full time job and work 6 days a week. When I have the chance I love to write a few hubs while also showing my fellow hubbers some love. It also helps with my views in the process. I love hearing feedback as well!
So I like to do all of them!
At the moment I prefer to balance comments and answers - both have a bearing on the hub score it seems but more importantly they help me keep in touch with others - whilst I admit I haven't yet got into the forums on a regular basis.
I like to comment on hubs, I think it's important to keep the juices flowing so to speak. I try to make insightful comments and hopefully will receive meaningful ones in return! It doesn't always work out that way. Comments are also links which help beef up your hubs and that has to be good for HubPages as a whole?
The answers section is an interesting place to wander through. Can you believe some of the questions? They crease me up! Others hit the nail right on the head.
Great question. For this 'self' it varies and if I have a plan in place for that day. Today, I'm wandering a bit and a byte, allowing for spontaneity, and procrastinating now - lol. How is it in Bellingham today? Having lived in Burien, I remember a young woman I dated in the late 70's from there. I'm procrastinating remember.
Okay, it goes like this with social interactions for this 'self.' First from the big picture perspective I tend to focus with commenting equally between questions and hubs, since one may lead to the other. I tend to read who wrote the question at their profile first and a bit of what they wrote too. Same principle with hubs too. Even if familiar with the hubber I still peek to see what is up in their life.
I tend not to go to the forums for one reason. I feel if I post a forum question there is a degree of responsibility even if it does grow with leaps and bounds. At least keep up with it for a duration. The same thing with posting at them. I feel I should continue the interaction like at a social gathering. I would not walk up to a group, say this or that, and just run off to the refreshments and not come back.
Sadly, or happily, not sure, time constraints come in with that as a play. I actually jot down notes at times from questions and hubs and take them to work with me. I place them on my desk - encrypted of course - LOL, and ponder through out the day. I may research that later when arriving home. And, then file it for the future.
I like sharing too. Sometimes I just read hubs and questions and share them never leaving a comment. That as a strategy has been on the back burner these past five months or so. Or, one may say the comment left is the introduction given when sharing at Facebook for the article.
Sharing again, I am a 'learner' by nature, according to several sources. Realise2 free testing pointed that out and so did the Gallup Organization series on 'Now Discover Your Strengths' with their Clifton Strengths Finder. A strength for me is reading, a skill I hone daily, and typing may be considered a weakness, yet has more to do with brain function and broken fingers, scars, nerves and stuff like that.
I love voting and accolades. It is so much easier to just click-click and off one goes to a new adventure with words, concepts, and a whole bunch of style. Hubpages is full of style of many kinds. Brings bunches of smiles to me.
By the way that is a great avatar. Inviting the reader to share it seems to say.
I like to leave answers when I can, I'm not always free but I do however try to check in when possible. I live life by the moment! Wild crazy thinkers do catch my attention on different subjects though.... I do ask questions when I need help. I also love to help when I see someone needs it . I don't always have the right answers or If I'm even asking the appropriated questions "Like people say close mouths Don't get feed " Then that to me is your bad, you will just stay hungry. There are many that would rather not ask or say anything for many reasons. As for me I'm blunt, If I'm wrong tell me or prove me other wise. I'm the kind of person that loves to research things if I'm unsure. I'm very opened minded. This is a great question that needed to be brought to the table long ago.Have a nice day!

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?

For the newbies and experienced Hubpage members, it seems that it takes some work to stay alive on Hubpages. From writing hubs to answering questions to being on the forums, I do admit it is fun either way but it takes a lot of work.I know most experienced hubbers advise not to worry about...

Should Hubpages make it a rule that to participate in the Q+A/Forums one has to have at least 1 hub?I've been reading a few of the questions here, and many many comments by a handful of people - several of whom seem to think that Hubpages Q+A is their personal conversion ground. Then I went to look...

Do commenting, answering questions and participating in forums significantly impact hubber score?
by Karla Iverson 5 years ago
I'm curious about that, and what other hubbers who do write hubs feel about it. I've seen some folks who don't write hubs, but who obviously read in HubPages and comment on hubs, and who participate in the forums with a good heart and a restrained hand. But I've also seen some others who seem to be...
