I just did some hub hopping and out of about 40 hubs I saw, almost all were poetry. Has there been a poets convention or something? It seems to have become ever so popular. I'm not trying to be offensive. I'm just amazed.
I think April is national poetry month. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I follow a lot of poets and they mention that fact in their Hub of poetry. That's probably why you are seeing more poems.
I get the impression that when people cannot be bothered to write the accepted minimum number of words, they spew out the few words they manage to put together into a hub placed in the poetry section, because no minimum word limit applies there.
I have yet to find something that would fit my criterion of poetry on HP!
Personally, I don't like poetry. Other than a couple of poems that I commented on when I first started HubPages, I don't read any poetry that is posted here. Or anywhere else. Oddly enough, poetry got me back into writing when one of my poems was placed in an anthology. I haven't written a poem since because it was hard enough writing the "rhythm" that goes with it. Poetry does not hold my attention, and when I see one while Hub hopping or one on my feed, I move on.

Do you think poetry belongs on Hubpages?I am going Hub Hopping and I would say 70% of the hubs are poetry. Now I like poetry, I even have one poem myself on Hubpages, but should poetry really be on here?

I've been hopping some hubs this morning. I came across a few excellent ones and a few that sheer perturbed me.In at least 3 of them, the English was so terrible and the word choice so indecipherable that I highly...

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the...
