Do you share your hubs with your family and friends?
Do your family and friends know about and read your hubs? Or are you more inclined toward being anonymous?
Some of them yes aspecially those that I wrote with the inspiration I got from them.
I don't share all of them, but there is a good majority that I do. Since most of my articles are about Oklahoma, and a good majority of my family and friends are interested in the state, I usually let them read the articles before I publish them.
Once they're published, they usually get spread around facebook quite a bit. In fact, my article about the Castles in Oklahoma still hasn't reached the end of the line. I'm getting emails from people that are supposedly related all the time - all from Facebook.
So, sometimes it's good to share.. other times, I'm a bit more stingy.
I do tell close family and friends about them...whether or not they end up reading them all the time, I don't really know
I have never told anyone about my hubpages or other blogs I have,but you know people do google people, never thought they would google my nickname.
I do tell them about my business websites,blogs,meetup group and other dealings online for business purposes.
But they found me anyway,it's all good.
I blog from life experiences,happy and sad places but all with the emphasis on posistivity,love and my heart.
Any feedback,comments or compliments is simply gravy!
I do have separate hubpages account for my business.
It's all about the hookup!!!
Everyone knows that I blog and hub, but I don't like to mention it too much incase they get sick of me, lol. I would like to know that my family and friends read my stuff, but I know that a lot of them don't. It doesn't hurt to know that though, everyone's short of time, and if blogging and hubbing are not your thing then I can understand that you wouldn't want to spend too much of that precious time reading them. My friends and family see my hubs as something that's MY hobby, not theirs. My closest do read them, my mum, my partner, my best friends. But they never comment, which I'm thankful for - I would imagine that reams of comments from a hubbers family would put any other hubbers off from making comments themselves, for fear of feeling like they were intruding on a family party!
No I don't actually. Not that I publish anything provocative, but I like to have a place I can put down my thoughts and not have to hear their opinions.
No, I haven't shared my hubs, but I am not anonymous as you can see by my photo.
Yes, I sure do. But no other member of my family are into blogs or hubs, so they don't usually care about them.
Have a nice day,
My Hubby and kids know, so do some of their friends. Unless, I specifically tell them about a particular hub, kiddies don't bother to read. Hubby could not care less. I could be writing " I hate him letters".......he would never know.
I make no secret about my hub activity. I want them to look so I invite, but if they don't want to then it is ok and I don't harp on it. They are mostly all on facebook and I always post a link. If there is an interest in the topic, they view.
A funny thing happened a couple of times, a couple of firends and family members have called all excited because they 'stumbled upon' one of my articles. Also, I had a friend tell me that he was looking for his son's blog and googled the name, he found my profile and a hub I had written about it and then followed the link to his son's blog. I thought that was funny, lol.
Yeah i do share hubs with my sister ans my best friends and they are also using hubs now a days
I would try, and they would seem interested at first, but as my life is a mystery to them and their sensibilities, they would forget about it and not linger, even if it were one of the most important things in my life.
My family is loving but hardly acknowledging of my life.
i post some of my hubs on facebook and twitter and i discuss my thoughts with my wife all the time.

I've noticed something kinda weird, after I write something, I put it on Facebook, because I've worked hard on it, and letting everyone I know that I have written a new hub. Do they or even even disliked it or leave encouraging words? Nope...nothing....zip, zero. I'm not sure if they know...

Can someone explain the point of Facebook?
by Marcus T Caine 6 months ago
I have been writing for Hubages for over a year and I am still trying to figure out how to get my readers to comment on my articles. Is this something hubbers should even worry about?

I'm confused. My hub is about traveling in our motorhome for 5 months covering 30 states and the purpose is mostly to keep my family and friends up to date on our journey. But I don't know whether each "story" should be a new hub with a new title, or does the original hub entitled...

If Facebook worth it for promoting hubs when you only have six friends on it?

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?
