    I read a "series" of stories by a particular NEW hubber, which I enjoyed and was the first in EVERY case, to leave a comment.  That was 4 weeks ago.  Going back to visit, I see, not even one more comment than mine...nor is there even one response to my comments, from the author.  It is as though, he wrote them, I read them & commented and POOF! he vansihed.  What do I make of this?  HAs this ever happened to you?

      LOL.. Strange indeed..Maybe he is just trying out his story to see the response..
      On the other hand I guess at HubPages creative writers really need to network to get comments and appreciation form others I guess.. so if he is a new hubber he may not get many comments until he networks or interacts on the forms.. so may not be all that strange really .

        Doesn't seem possible that in 4 weeks not another soul has read and/or commented on a series of 12 hubs!!  I also cannot imagine an author not checking back on his work....but, oh well, I guess I'm learning something new everyday here!

      Although we have all seen hubs with pages of comments, I would suspect that hubs with zero or maybe one comment are the rule, not the exception.

      As to the author not commenting back, alas, I am usually guilty of that myself. I never know what to say. When I am in the rare comment mood, I usually go make a comment on the commentor's hub about their hub instead.

        fpherj48posted 7 years agoin reply to this just knocked me over with a feather......In 4 months, I have yet to see a hub with "zero or maybe one," comment....until this one I mentioned.  I've read hundreds thus far and they have comments that go on forever!  Thank you so much for your input......I'm beginning to think this guy left the country to a place without access to computers!! lol

      I'd say it's foolish..

      I'm assuming your comment should have caused a response, of course.
