I posted a short new hub on the about English and American language differences about an hour ago. It's not a heavy or serious piece with serious references, but in it I put external links and links to three other hubs which relate to the subject. It never occured to me to ask permission from the other hubbers before I did it. Should I have? and if so what do I do now-- is there an established author etiquette on this?
I think most people see it as a good deed and a kindness. I don't usually ask permission because I assume so and I know I'm always thrilled when someone chooses to link to one of my hubs.
I can't speak for everyone, however, but the logic is that if it gets them more hits, they probably appreciate it.
whew--thanks all of you for the quick response and for easing my mind. I was pretty sure nobody would mind, but thought I'd better check--don't want to make a "hub-gaffe"
Another Hubber recently included a link to one of my Hubs and I was thrilled to bits. It's a compliment, after all.
I would let the other hubber know, though. I would LOVE to know if someone linked to me!

I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe...
