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.
I wouldn't say that I love it. Although, I do find reading other peoples's work very interesting.
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 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.
I enjoy hub hopping and stumbling across interesting hubs that I may not have otherwise encountered.
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.

I started hub hopping tonight after taking a long break from it. I like to be encouraging and usually go light on people, but some of these hubs were so bad that I couldn't help but mark them down. There were about 5 awful ones and just 2 good ones. By then, I had enough and quit reading them. I...

I occasionally hub-hop, but most of the time I come away from it feeling like I haven't really accomplished much as far as "improving HubPages" goes.So tonight, just for laughs, I decided to type "mesothelioma" into the search box at the top of HubPages' homepage. I then sorted...

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall, I'm wondering if there's been a bit of a slow down in hub QAP due to...

We've just opened up a new discovery tool that I'm excited about called Hub Hopper. It allows you to quickly browse through and read semi-random hubs that have been published recently, with a bias towards hubs in topic areas that you are following. It also has easily accessible buttons...

I was just starting to go hub hopping today when I had a thought. What if there was a "hopper" for those of us who are interested in feedback on the quality of writing in our hubs? We could add our hubs to that list, and people could rate or comment on errors they find, or make...
