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 etc...is 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.

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? ...
