Why didn't the hubs I shared show up in the feed?
I don't share my own hubs often, but I wanted to share two to commemorate the anniversary of my 3-year-old nephew's death. Poems I had written. Dang.
I sent a message once to the HP staff asking this exact question. The answer was that they didn't think we needed to see our own hubs in the feed. I suppose it's a way of discouraging sharing our own hubs.
Another way to get your hub back in the feed is to make a general comment in the comment area. Of course I've never done such a thing (crossing finger and toes) but I'm sure it would work just fine.
That's interesting. We used to see out own in the feed. I like seeing them to make sure everything looks right, is spelled right, etc--and to see the comments.
Your hub did show up in my feed. I left a comment there. As Chris Mills said in his answer, it probably just doesn't show up in your own feed.
Thanks, Glenn. They used to show up. That's annoying. I wonder if it shows up now that there are comments there. I'd like to at least read the comments!
Vicki, yes, it will show up in your own feed when comments are left, as long as you are following it. Following your own hub is automatic but you may have inadvertently disabled that.
Maybe if you signed out and opened hubpages.com you'd see what everyone else sees?
I tried sharing a hub once and a box popped up saying it wasn't a good thing to share your own hubs. So I didn't do it. I didn't understand why not. Did they think it sounded like bragging?

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd like to suggest that HubPages limits the ability to do this to a certain number...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Why do so many hubbers delete comments just because they disagree?I see this a lot particularly on hubs espousing things like Noahs flood, or the inerrancy of the bible. I don't delete opposing comments when I write about evolution - why cant these people deal with contradicting opinions. Is it...

Why would any HP writer purposely not allow comments on his/her hubs?I just read two hubs--good ones--by an HP writer I hadn't encountered before, but neither has a Comments section. I wanted to comment on both, and the inability to do so stops me from reading any more of this writer's hubs. Why...

I notice when I google my pen name comments I have made on hubs show up. Why is that?I include my pen name as a tag in all of my hubs so that I can keep tabs on my work. The last time I did this, (a few days ago) comments that I had made on other peoples hubs showed up in the search. That seems...
