    Do you take notes while reading other Hubs?

    When I'm reading Hubs written by others, I get so focused.  I don't want to forget to comment on something that I find interesting, so I take notes as I read the Hub.  When I get to the comment section, it helps me better prioritize what I want to say.

    Good idea, especially for those times when I get interrupted in the middle of reading,..

    No, but if the advice is good I put it on my pinterest account, so that I can refer to it when I need it.

    Not really notes. Kinda' the same. I copy/paste segments with attributions into a folder on my PC labeled Hubber Hub Research. I usually open a Word document labeled with the year, month, and title  - quotes & stuff (2014-3 Quotes & Stuff). It stays in a numerical order that way.

    I keep an Excel Spreadsheet with worksheets by the Group Names I use for hubs. I list them with a very short subject heading in the first column, date discovered to reference to the Word document, next column hubber name, then the current last updated date at the bottom right of the hub, and finally hub title. I can sort by subject that way. Then if I write on the subject of a hub group I can check. I can choose that hub or another if I wish to link as additional reading or as supportive information in a paragraph.

    That's a great idea, Crafty. I usually find myself scrolling back up to re-read or verify something I wanted to mention in my comment. Taking notes makes sense.

    I have made jottings for the same reason, but that's not a regular habit for me.  Now, I think it should be.

    Sometimes I do....depending on the subject matter.  If there is something I want to remember so that I can try it later....yes indeed.   Many of the hubs contain great tips.

    No I do not take written notes but if I find it particularly interesting I follow it to make sure I come back to look over again. Reading so many it is not hard to forget but as people comment I get notices and I will not feel so rushed to get back thinking I may forget, this way.

    I don't do this, but it's a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    I don't take notes, but I do scroll back over the hub before commenting on it. It may save time to take notes to highlight the points I find interesting.  Thanks for the suggestion.

    I don't take notes, I just try and find a part of the hub that really fits with me and briefly memorise any parts I feel I will be commenting on. Having said that, sometimes when there's difficult words involved, I might need to scroll back up and check how it's spelled.
