When leaving your comments on others' hubs, how do you prioritize?
It can be a little difficult to comment on everyone's hubs at one sitting. Would you prioritize by
1) leaving comments for those who have commented on your hubs first
2) Going through your feed
3) Responding to email notifications?
With so many comments to return, which has proven to be the most effective method of commenting for you?
Midget....You're right...commenting can be a challenge. I usually respond to my notifications, a few at a time......take a break......and try to do a few more, so they don't pile up. I don't really prioritize. I just take them in the order I receive them. If I'm extremely bogged down, with a busy schedule, I may respond a little later than most hubbers, but I do try to get to everyone's hub, eventually.
If I receive 4 and 5 hubs from one hubber in a 24 hour period (which does happen) I may only comment on 2 of them. Some of the SUPER hubbers are nearly impossible to keep up with...although I give them credit for staying so active......
Every once in a while, I will comment on a random hub, that I run across, just because it attracted my attention. Like a good friend recently said, "We can only do as much as we can do!"
I follow a pattern similar to Paula's. However, when I am pressed for time or have too many hubs to read, I will skip over those I haven't heard from in a long time. I know we are all busy but you know, "one hand washes the other". Some hubbers become fans, read one hub and then never show up again!
For my true friends, I read every hub I can and always leave a comment cause you guys are just so darn good and mean so much to me.
I think my system is a little random compared to some other organized hubbers! I look at my feed first thing in the morning and if something catches my eye --especially if it's one of my followers who often comments on my work, then I will read and comment. Sometimes I read without commenting, but I usually vote and frequently share or pin. I like to check out hubs of people who have left me comments and the new hubs in my notifications, but I don't always have time to read and comment on all. There are some writers who post something every day. Good writers as they may be, they are too prolific for me to read and comment on everything. Once a week or so, I do a little hub hopping as that's one way to see what new people are doing. Sometimes I leave a comment, sometimes I vote up or down, sometimes I just skip over it.
Just a thought about commenting and reading hubs...although it's a valuable way to support our colleagues, and we certainly can learn much from each other, I sometimes find myself doing it as way of procrastinating when I should be writing! We can't do it all!
I will go through my feed and comment on things that catch my interest. Then I will comment on those that have commented on mine. Then I check my notifications and comment on any that I have missed. If I have time, I will go through those that I follow and see if they have anything I have not read. I do have more time than most of y'all. I am caretaker for my disabled husband and he sleeps a lot. I do need to stick around the house when he is home in case he has a problem.
I will respond to the comments on my hub first, follow back those who had followed me and read their hubs, leave comments. Since less people leave fan mail or comments on my hubs, I don't have problem with answering or responding them, usually less than 5 per day, no sweat!
I read the hubs of all the people that I follow no matter what. I try to make a comment on every hub if I can think of an intelligent statement. If a person has many hubs that I do not like, I simply stop following them.

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

I read a few of your hubs, why don't you comment on comments?

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...
