    Who loves hopping hubs?

    I just love hopping hubs and I  wonder how many others do it.

    I do it when I have some extra time (which isn't too often).  Sometimes I get a whole string of really bad Hubs and I just don't care to do it anymore... and other times I get to read some really well done Hubs.

      True. I can only do so many at a time before I get frustrated by some of the content that has actually been allowed.

    I wouldn't say that I love it. Although, I do find reading other peoples's work very interesting.

      So do I. I have found some interesting hubs while hopping.

    I wouldn't use a word like "enjoy." I suppose it's our duty, and like a good HP soldier, I soldier on and hop as far as I can until I get tired of shaking my head.

    I'm fairly new to HP, and when I first hopped, I thought (and I hope I'm not alone in thinking this): Um, is HP a glorified blog? Where are the articles? These are advertisements and personal thoughts and online diaries and diatribes and Bible lessons and photo essays without the actual essay and sales pitches for a specific business written by someone from that business and random lists and--oh, here's an actual article. Whoa. Look at how the writer worked in all the eBay offerings seamlessly into a 100-word "article." The next one looks as if the writer used a thesaurus to "revise" the technical specs from Amazon.com. This next one has a misspelled word in the title, this one's a letter to a family member, this one uses no capitalization or punctuation ...

    Before we were able to assess creative writing using the sliders, I often had to skip some really good poetry and short stories. Now, I spend more time enjoying and rating the creative hubs than I do the nonfiction (so to speak) hubs.

      Yes I agree with you entirely and one of the reasons I enjoy hopping is to flag inapropriate content. It really bugs me when I see a blog type hub or one that is so obviously promotional. I don't hesitate for one second to flag them.

    Yes and no. for every interesting hub you see, you encounter a string of ones that are frankly embarrassing. I would prefer it if the titles were presented in a list so you could just click on what interests you.

      That's a great idea, I would prefer that as well!

      Yes that would be helpful. Or some button to skip a hub that is of no interest to us.

    I enjoy hub hopping and stumbling across interesting hubs that I may not have otherwise encountered.

      Yes, so do I. It's a good way to pass the time late at night when there's not much going on.

    I don't like hub hopping at all.  I tried it for a while but most of the topics held no interests for me.  Instead, I just like to type in a Key Word like LEGO, Spider-Man, Star Wars, or cartoon dinosaurs and read what pops up.  Kind of a way to "Hop" on topics I enjoy.

      Yes having to read something that's of no interest to me is the only thing about hub hopping that bugs me. I rate them lower than the ones that interest me. It would be fairer to the hub's authors if there was a 'skip' button for those we don't like.
