I have so many new fans, today I just went in and read some of their hubs. I guess if someone likes me enough to be my fan, I should support their writing. I sometimes do a search on certain topics, and read, to find new information as well as inspiration. When I do readings from the hubs page, I usually go to the latest hubs to find new writers. I love it that we have so many new international hubbers. Different views on life are just so interesting.
Anybody else do this?
I try to stop by the latest hub listing once a day and flag the really bad spam. That's the easiest way to find it.
Yeah, I hate spam. I get enough of it in my mailbox. I don't need it here. Thanks for flagging it.
I did the same thing...hehehehee..... I even encountered people posting a bunch of useless stuff to market their sites.
We both read Hubs! There is so much to learn, and it is interesting to read different points of view. Sometimes if we are featuring a topic on our website <snipped link>, we look to see if there are any relevant Hubs. If we find a Hub that offers extra information, we ask the Hubber for permission and add a link from our site to the relevant Hub.
Yes, I read hubs! I check on new hubs daily - I seldom stop on those without a profile. I look for common interests. And I sometimes check topics to see waht's happening and I have some favorite hubber friends, like Rochelle, who I always read their new releases.
I do subject searches here if I am researching a topic, before I go googling.
Thank You , Donna, I try to catch all of yours too and I appreciate your encouragement.
I like to read through latest hubs when possible and I do try to read at least some hubs of those who choose to fan me. Sometimes it's a little disappointing to see that some people just choose to be the fan of EVERYONE. I really try to give comments to those who have something good to offer. You are right-- HubPages is becoming a rich trove of information for research on almost any subject.
There are so many hubs and authors that I want to read, but I have trouble fitting in enough time, so I just do as many as I can each time I sign in. I start with authors I know because they are so supportive of me, and I try to get at least one new (to me) one in, as well.
I have been spending 90% of my time here reading new hubs by those that I am a fan of and checking the latest posts. I think I need to slow down to 50% reading and 50% writing. Guess it's one of my faults, I love to read.
I usually read 1-2 hours worth of hubs at the end of the day, that is my fun and relax time. The amazing good reading stuff is one of the best things about hubpages. There are a lot of talented people here. zs
Yes, I do... but probably not enough. There is really a wonderful wealth of information and entertainment here. It is very hard to keep up with everything, but sometimes it's just fun to take a tour of searching a certain subject. I'm sure there is a lot of hidden treasure and it is easy to miss if you just look at the hot hubs and the latest hubs.
Unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to really just sit and read a whole buch of the Hubs here, but I do get a chance to read some of the folks I am a fan of. And unfortunately, I don't get a chance to comment much either. Especially now, during harvest season. Both of our gardens are producing like ganbusters, and this season we have had some real record setting veggies, like Broccoli heads that measured almost 10 inches across, and several of them. Thats alot of Broccoli when you multiply that by 10 or so plants! (Any one need any fresh veggies? Organic? Fresh? No? Oh well, can't blame a guy for trying.)
Any way, after a recent experience, you can be sure I will be reading alot more!
I will say there are so many talented people out there, it is hard to figure out just where to start, No?
I try to read every hub published by my fans and comment too if possible. I certainly have some favourites and I probably read more than I publish as I only seem to be able to publish one hub a week. Some people are publishing multiple hubs daily which makes it pretty hard to keep up. But I do try. Also when I find intellegent, witty or well written comments I will go to the authors sites and read what they have written and If I like heir stuff I become their fan. But I now get about 50-70 mails a day just on hub pages. But for me that s part of the fun.
Yes, I do. But I leave relatively few comments in relation to the number of hubs I have read. I usually leave comments on topics that I can relate to. Hubpages is indeed an incredible communty of gifted writers.
And though I do not comment on every hub I read, I always show my appreciation and support by clicking on the "thumbs up" button. *smiles*
It seems that's all I do, lately. So many interesting people, and so many good hubs leaves little time to write.
I do because I have had a lot of Hubbers support me with my hubs and I feel its only fair I do the same to them I have read some great hubs on hubpages some really great info to .
Agreed. Plus, the only way to make new and better hubs is to learn from the best.
there's a wealth of wisdom, knowledge, inpiration and love in this community. i read as much as i can when time permits. hubpages grows on you because of the kind of people you meet around here. many members are encouraging and supportive. their articles are empowering, informative, educational, inspirational, motivational and the like. on to more reading....
Yes, I read hubs too! I am learning a lot about things. And I also get glimpses of some hubbers as they share of themselves and their experiences. That touches me a lot. I guess there is beauty in reading different perspectives that comes from different background and experiences. Sometimes I find myself teary-eyed, sometimes I find myself smiling and even burst out laughing. Other times, I find myself saying, "this is exactly what I need to know." I'm really glad to be part of this community.
I try to always read the hubs of my fans, feeling it's the right thing to do. I appreciate them and would want them to do the same for me. Outside of that I visit hubtivity each time I log in and check out what's new on the first ten pages. Since I log in frequently that's about all of the reading I can do.
What I have learned is that some of you are really amazing and very smart!
I have been trying to keep upto date with my daily birthday hubs-blog,(which are hard work )and the only reason why im behind is because of reading all the other hubs and the information I learn from them, which i always say are filled with the best nugets of information and entertainment on the web!, and I always learn new things that send me off somewhere else on the web, then im back again to HPs and the same things happen again!!
I am always guilty for not reading all my 300+ fans hubs!! and keeping upto date with new hubbers hubs and socialising more in these forums and helping people out with any tips i have and I just wish there were more hours in the day!
I read as many as I can. Time to read is hard to come by, and I confess to picking books first if I know I have a good chunk of time to read. If I have ten or twenty minutes free, that's when I read hubs. I usually read four to eight hubs a day. Which in a way, sucks because there's probably more like thirty I would like to read but can't. And I know for sure there's some real gems that aren't on the hot hubs or best hubs list, probably some of the best stuff is burried in the hubpages servers with no lights shining on them at all. I use the "hubtivity" thing a lot and grab something that one of you people whom I enjoy has commented on, figuring your taking the time to comment might be a sign of something good.
I won't become someone's fan unless I read at least one article. So usually if someone joins my fan club, I bop over to their site and read something of their's. Most of the time I can find enough redeeming material to justify joining their fan club.
I recently took a wek off from writing hubs just so i could read, learn and...be like Misha?
It was greta and I learned a lot. there is some cool new talent around here too.
My problem when i do this is i have a backlog of daily birthday hubs to catch up on!

Do you make a comment on every Hub you vote "up" after reading?I always do make a comment, even a short one, and just wondered if a lot of people read and vote without comment. Do you ever read and not vote? I have done that occasionally.

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual can answer for themself.

Do people really read the hubs of people they follow?Is it just me but I tend not to follow too many hubbers because I would never have time to write if I read all the hubs they submit. Perhaps I’m being naive here … but it seems disrespectful to follow them and then not read their work. Do people...

How many hubs do you read in a day? (ofcourse other than your own hub) I ask this because, I am getting a feeling that I am getting addicted to hubpages :-(
