    Just wondering... when someone interesting posts a message in the forums or your hub or you notice an interesting picture do you follow the link and actually view some of their hubs?
    Do you do it because you know it helps them? Or do you do it because you're interested... just wondering how other hubbers work!

    Well of course.  I've (virtually) met many nice people from reading their forum comments, and being curious enough to read some of their articles, and leaving comments.  Also becoming followers/fans if I find their articles consistently interesting to me.

    I normally check out each new hubber that comments on my hubs. If they are interesting enough, I may read there hubs and fan them as well, if they interest me. Sometimes I see someone in the forum who is interesting and I will do the same.

    If someone interests me with a comment they make in the forums or perhaps a comment they leave on another persons hub, I will then read a few of their hubs and if I like them, I will comment and usually fan them if I like more than one or two.
    Someone has to appeal to me in some way for me to follow them-they dont have to be the greatest writer, have a high hub score, leave comments on my hubs or always have something unique and interesting to say-I just have to read that one phrase that makes me want to read more or know more about who they are and why they are writing here.
    I like the history behind the hubers-it is somewhat comforting finding that you are not alone in this world with what you have survived or what your beliefs, views, hopes and dreams are.
    I must admit that I have fanned one or two people to show them support and give a little encouragement-even if their writing doesnt appeal to me, but that is because I have come to believe that being a good person/huber, isnt just about writing well, it is about encouraging others to write.
    Okay that is all I have to ramble on about for now...

    I check out hubbers who make me laugh, whether forums or comments.  I will also check out articles of those who show consistently thoughtful, deep and articulate responses on the forums.  Really hot chick avatars will also occasionally get me to come look if they seem like they might be real ((because depth is not all that matters in my shallow world ) tongue

    "(because depth is not all that matters in my shallow world smile)"- that was the most original, brilliant, humorous phrase I have heard in awhile- thanks for making me laugh-   big_smile

        that is what you should do. write what you are passionate about and as long as you are passionate about it-it will show in your writing, making your writing more appealing to others.
