    What catches your attention the most in a hub.  What kind of hub REALLY catches your attention?

      The content. It has to interest me. I don't care much if it's perfectly written or not. I can cope with a couple of mistakes.

    Peoples writing styles is what catches my attention, especially if they have some humor to them.

    Hubs that have a good layout. I like to find hubs that have different and unique layouts. When a hub looks good, generally you know that person took time in developing the page. I've found that hubs that have a good layout, generally have good grammar and purpose.
    In a lot of cases, if the hub doesn't look organized, I won't read it. Sorry.. I just feel that the more time spent on organizing and capsule placement, the more likely the person spent the time when writing to create something good. That has actually followed through in the majority of cases.

    Not saying that unorganized blocks of text with few to no other capsules, doesn't have good grammar and an achieved goal, but more times that's been the case from what I've seen.

    Title is first for me. And it doesn't have to be overly creative. The guidelines for title selection say we should consider using titles that people look for in searches. And the hubs I'm drawn to have titles that often match the search criteria I'm using.

      For me it's sort of the same.  I look at titles first as most people do but, writing style makes up alot of my choice.  I think it's because my style is all over the place.  I can go from my ridiculous Deerflat stories to trashing liberalism in a blink.  The title catches my eye, the style keeps me reading.

    Titles and the pictures, especially the picture on the thumbnail. I guess I'm a visual person and I need something interesting to look at, but I definitely won't read it if the title isn't something I want to read about. Also, it's a pet peeve of mine to find bad grammar or spelling in a blog. Proof read! Even if I like the content of a hub, if it's poorly written I'll stop reading.
