Should we have a self appraisal option in HubPages?

    Should we have a self appraisal option in HubPages?

    In all professions the appraisal method entails a self appraisal, and then a supervisor appraisal and finally a talk over the ratings to decide whether appraisals are justified and reasons. In HubPages our ratings are done by the management, how would it be if the authors self-rated themselves, so that even readers may get to know just how well he or she feels about a particular work?

    I think that's only right.  If you can't assess yourself, you shouldn't be writing for the public.  Here on HP, I found that's frowned upon but it doesn't bother me.  I still do it privately, even if it's not published publically on HP.  When it was important to me, I've moved or written articles elsewhere that I happily self-appraised on other sites.  If HP doesn't like it, no worries... Different strokes for different folks.  My thing is overall readership (from all sites) so I can't get too hung up on the little things that would otherwise be small distractions on the way to completing objectives that result in total cash.  HP is great for some things but not all things.  As with anything in life, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

      I agree with you. I also think that self appraising, even in private, is a great way to check out how your work measures up against that estimate, on the public forum. I did find that the ones I rated the most, got favorably appraised by readers. smile
