    Do you share your hubs with your family--- husband/ wife/ children ? Do they read it with interest?

    My wife and kids think it's "cool" that I write Hubs but none of them are even remotely interested in any of the stuff that I write about, so they rarely read them. I guess you could say that they lend me  moral support but they aren't what I'd call "fans." Haha

      Thank you Keith Abt, for your response!
      Its almost similar in my case. My family is also very proud and supportive of me that I am writing. May be they are all very busy in their own professions but they do read n appreciate whenever they read them.

    My wife is my unofficial secretary and does all of my editing to make sure that things come out sounding right. She isn't exactly what you would call "supportive" of me writing or really doing anything online but she figures that if I'm going to do it, than it better be correct.

      Thank you Tyler Philbrook, for your response!
      Sounds nice and wives are like that. They want their husbands to be always correct. I believe you are very fortunate to have her feedback.
      Thanks and have a good day!

    Yes, some family members do actually show an interest in some of my hubs!! I might have to poke them into action occasionally but on the whole, when I've completed a new hub my partner or one of my older sons sits down to read it. Amazing.

    I'll even accept a critical opinion from time to time! (What do you mean, this hub is factually incorrect?!? How dare you. My hubs go through a rigorous system of checks and inspections before being released out into the jungle that is the internet)

      Thanks Andrew Spacey, for answering!
      Its nice to know that your family takes interest in what you are publishing. Family will always give you correct feedback about your work, because they love you and  want you to be appreciated.
      Have a good day!

    My boyfriend never read any of my hubs but I am always telling him about what I wrote each day. He is always interested on them, but never reads them. I think is more fun for him when I tell it like a story.

      Its important to take interest in your work. Just as you can't devote much time for his profession, he can't give much time to you. When I send a link to some of hubs to my husband, he will just scan through n say very good LOL

    I told them, but they are not interested, instead my ex school mates are very supportive

      Thank you peachy, for responding to the question!
      That's fine because writing is an altogether different skill and your family must be proud of you even if they do not show their enthusiasm to read your work.  Thanks!

    I share my Hubs with my family on Facebook, but they are too busy socializing with their friends to read my Hubs!! 
    When my youngest child was still at home and in high school, she would proof my Hub before I published it which was very helpful.
    But to answer your question:  NO my family does not read my Hubs.

      Thank you Mary Hyatt, for answering the question!
      You write such great hubs. I wish your family reads them. In any case they must be proud of you. May be if you send a link on their personal email, they would read it.
      Thanks and have a nice day!

    Yes, I let them know when I write a hub that I think would be of interest to them. Sometimes I will send them a link. But they rarely read any of the hubs I write. In fact, they only sound half interested when I ask them if they read the hub. At first my feelings would get a little hurt but now I'm OK with it.

      Its almost similar with everyone as I read the answers. I also send link of some of my hubs  to my husband and children. They do appreciate and feel happy and proud  but may be they are all busy with their own profession.

    But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” (Mark 6:4) Shucks if my family and close friends liked my stuff I would be worried I was not a prophet. If I surrounded myself with people who could really sink their teeth into what I write then no one would come to me for advice and I would be even more of a loner.
    So no my family does not read my stuff as often as I write it. Perhaps I like it that way more. Sometimes I like to compartmentalize my life so I get a little "me" space.
    This is a very fine question as on initial consideration I noticed that I was just a bit resentful that they do not read my stuff. After looking at it I got over that. Thanks

      Thanks Ericdierker, for the wonderful answer!
      Most of the writers have said almost the same thing that their family does not read their hubs. Its fine because as you said, we all need a little 'Me' space. What matters is that they are supportive!

    On some occasions, my son views my hubs. But not each one. My relatives also are not so much interested in all these things. When I tell them about my new posts, unwillingly one or two may view it very rarely. We can't expect them to be interested in these things.

      Thank you Venkatachari ji!
      You are right, we should not expect every one to be interested in writing. I do send the links of hubs of their interest by email. They are very happy and supportive but busy in their own professions. That's fine with me!

    Unfortunately, no. I stopped sharing on facebook because it was a waste of time. At first it bothered me but not so much anymore.

      There is no need to get disappointed.Looking at the responses, it seems everyone has the same thing to say. Family may not be interested in writing/ reading as much as us.  But they do support and feel  proud of us

    Interesting question, Chitrangada. My husband is a man of commerce field who always encourages me to write but asks me not to request him to read the write-ups. He is never into reading any long pieces and that which consists deep thoughts. My son is only thirteen and an avid reader but I cannot ask him to read every article of mine because of his age. Those which I ask him to read, he definitely reads them. My eldest brother used to check my write-ups but with his busy schedule it's not possible for him to go through each and every post.
               I think it is fine because everyone's choice of interest cannot be same. It is good to have a feed back from such people who take keen interest in reading and not from those who would just read it for the sake of relationship.

      Hi Shampa!
      Nice to see you after a long time! I completely agree with your thoughts, especially in the second paragraph. I keep on sending links to my family about hubs of their interest.
      Many thanks for responding to the question.
