I have a hub that is a short fiction story that shows more than 130 visits since I published it more than two days ago. The length is quite short and it shows one rating that a person has rated interesting. The rest have not rated and there are no comments.
Is my hub really that bad?? -Or is it because it is based on a story of alien abduction, even though it is categorized as fiction. Your thoughts?
I wouldn't worry too much about it. After all, you have had 130 visits which is great!
It could be people hub hopping, and only scanning it and not reading it properly. I don't always vote up or comment. Ive read it, but didn't feel inspired to vote. Does it mean your hub is no good? Not at all. Give it time, and no doubt comments and votes will come. Forget about it, keep releasing hubs and be patient!
As for Mark ewbie, I agree with him.... i was expecting it to continue....maybe I should wait for the next chapter.....
I usually never read fiction on HP but I had a look at your page. It's well written but then it just stops. It felt very short to me. Where the ad break comes I was expecting to scroll down and see much more, so that opener was just an opener if you see what I mean.
I appreciate that may be the whole story but...
Personally I usually try to hit around a thousand words. People on here will vary generally between 500 and 2,000 but there are always exceptions.
How long do you think a short story should be?
Yes it is abrupt, that's how I work... I need to be inspired, & it comes in dribs & drabs... I may work on extending it. ...Thanks for your comments I appreciate it.
OK, hope you don't mind. It's only my opinion, one out of 200,000!
Not I don't mind at all, in fact this has helped me a lot. So thank you for taking the time in sharing.

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes.

When I get a comment on one of my hubs I usually reply, at least with a thanks if I can. I notice some do and others do not reply to comments.I am wondering if there is any reason for not replying apart from being too busy to do so? Is it bad for bandwidth? does it score against your page rank,...

Does anyone ever get other hubbers making comments and then plugging their own hubs by pasting their urls in the comments section? What do you do..do you allow it or deny it?
