HubPages is a place to publish articles and they are called hubs here.
Lots of information can be found at the foot of this page in the place called the Learning Center and also at the top of the page the FAQ is accessed via the help button.
It is a good idea to start by making a brief profile - (my profile).
When you are ready to write a hub you start by clicking on the 'start a new hub' button.
The text is entered into capsules which can be moved around the page with arrows and you can add photos in capsules to.
It is a good idea to try to make your articles more like a magazine page than a personal journal or diary as HubPages is not a blog or social networking site.
Once you have started to make hub pages you can sign up for the different earning programmes. You will find all the info about this in the learning center.
The 'my account' button at the top of the page next to 'my profile' button is the way you can check how your pages are doing for traffic and also if you want to edit them you can do so from there.
Hope this helps, I read that you are getting married from your forum post so that might be a topic you wanted to write about or anything that you are - as they say ' an everyday expert' on. Hope you enjoy your time writing here.
