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?

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...

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)...
