Is it possible to set up a Hub as more of a question/answer column?

    I have a lot of areas of expertise and think it might be less overwhelming for me to generate an article or discussion based on particular questions that readers submit on a given topic this possible? I just signed up and haven't read everything on here but I wasn't able to find any info on this question anywhere so far...

      It's possible, but I don't think it'd be very productive - the way HP is set up.

      There's two ways you could do this, but you still need a substantial "header" for it.  In other words, write a 500 word introduction to what you're answering questions about. 

      First method: Use comment boxes.  I don't know if it's still regulated to one comment box or if you can have multiple boxes.  If I remember right, in the past, you could have more than one comment box.  I never used more than one, but it may be possible.  If not, one hub per topic, and answer the questions through comments.

      Second method: Use polls and quizzes.  This really doesn't offer you direct interaction with the reader, but it offers the reader direct interaction with the article.

      Hope this helps.

      Maybe. I have a few "FAQ" style hubs, but they are not attracting much traffic.

      You are probably better off writing a traditional article-style hub, with an FAQ section that address common questions.
