      Using spellcheck on your hubs will certainly help.  smile

        Agreed. Poor spelling and grammar totally distract me from understanding the message the author is trying to convey. I usually give up reading after the first sentence or two.

      Why do you want comments?  Do you think comments are going to make you any money? 

      You need to learn more about HubPages in that case.

          I would suggest using the 'extreme hub makeover' forum.

      Have you considered asking a friend or family member to help you proofread and edit your hubs?  This way you are still saying what you want to but you will get the message across in a more concise way and this will keep people reading.

      Another option is to hire a proofreader/editor but you have to make sure you find someone that writes with a high level of English (otherwise there's no point), and this doesn't usually come cheap.

      If you write your initial hub in MS Word before uploading it this will highlight the spelling mistakes which is a start :-)

      Maybe it is too early. You have only 6 Hubs and 2 followers. The only things that you can do are: persevere, write Hub with interesting content, leave comments to the others' page, be patient. Good luck!

      I do agree that grammar and punctuation are necessary parts of writing. By giving your reader a rough draft of your writing tells us that you don't really care. I would suggest that you start by using Firefox and install a spell checker. Then after your words are spelled correctly then read your writing out loud. Correct anything that sounds funny. Finally have some one else check it to maker sure you didn't miss a mistake.

    How much you promote your Hub may get you comments. Some good, others spam or unrelated tongue it all depends on the topic I would guess. You can post Hub urls under the 'Makeover' forum if you are looking for reviews. Hope that helps smile

    I agree with Randy.

    Telling people to just pay attention to your message (as you did in your "human needs" hub) rather than your writing means that maybe you should be a speaker instead of a writer.

    If you don't care enough about your message to make sure that it is presented in the best way possible, why should I -as your reader-force my way through it to get the message? 

    For those of us that read/write a lot, misspellings and poor grammar are distractions.  Big big distractions.  They make me stop in the middle of a sentence and say "Does that say what I think it says or is he meaning another word?"  Its just not worth it.

    It's also insulting to those of us that are trying to make hubpages a place for good writing.

    I think this is the first time I've ever done this, so the Gods of HP need to go gentle on me... but I wrote a hub about bad writing and why it upsets other writers

    If you have readers,and they are not commenting, either the content is not interesting or doesn't stimulate comment.  i would suggest looking at your content first.

    I will have to agree with the advice of using the spelling check thing. I read your latest hub, the topic and the content is great but i could not read it fluently without loosing the concept and tone, i think it might be some typographical error, but the spelling and grammar tools do help out.

    Gregorry- Just an idea but it might be a thought to put one of your hubs into the Extreme Hub Makeover. You may find that hubbers will give you both positive and negative criticsm . I do know what you mean about comments they are so uplifting.

    I read a part of one of your hubs and it was atrocious. This was the part I read:

    " EVEN if r bodys adapted they would grow hair in order to keep u secure?? How would you feel if we had no checks and balances and obama was a dictator?? Imagine if the bak had no guards,cameras, and to get in ur account all u need was to say( i want so much money)."

    Absolutely appalling and disastrous to the English language especially for something that is supposed to be written for a formal audience. I copied and pasted this whole article into MSWord and my paperclip's eyeballs popped out and he said, "Um.. NO way" (acually I coudln't write exactly what he said) 

    So to answer your query as to why no one is leaving comments... it is because they are being NICE to you.

      I think its because they are lazy and don't want to comment wink

    Lazy???.. eh.. I think people here are hard working and very gracious.. if I feel like leaving a comment I do, if there is nothing in the hub that appeals to me ignore it.. I guess that is how most people react.
    Lazy??  because they don't leave comments on a shoddily written hub????  lol

    Check grammar and spelling, as well as leaving insightful comments on other hubbers hubs. This is important if you wish to receive good feedback for your own work. Good luck.
