    Is there any feature wherein a visitor can see my hubs sorted month-wise, for instance as it is seen on blogspot?

    HubPages is not a blogging site so very few people would have Hubs which are meant to be read as a diary, in date order. So having that facility would be pointless.

      But if this feature is added it certainly would be a great advantage. Even if the hubs are not in a diary-format, the ability to put them chronologically would give better aesthetics. and read usability Just saying.

        Why?  I agree that if someone happens to write something that's a series, and it's important to read it in order, then it would be useful.  Otherwise, why would chronological order add anything? 

        Besides, I think you're misunderstanding how HubPages works.  The vast majority of our readers arrive at an individual Hub, after finding it on Google etc.  They've come because they're interested in the subject of your article, not in you.  If you look at one of your Hubs, you'll see that your profile isn't prominently linked - most readers won't even notice it.  Instead, their attention will be caught by the many other Hubs - by other authors - listed on the page. 

        So in general, if readers are going to browse around the site, they'll browse across a subject, they won't stick to one author. In fact they probably won't be aware who the authors are.  Virtually the only people who look at your profile are other Hubbers, and we're a very small community.  So it's really not that important anyway.

        If you are trying to build a following and it's important that your articles are read in sequence, then perhaps you'd be better off on a blog.

          Marisa, thank you for your inputs.  True that the profile is not prominently linked with the our hubs. But sometimes the chronology of content can really help the user understand the scheme of the things in a better way. For instance someone who is writing on Arab Spring, his entries would be much more meaningful if there is a preceding and succeeding link. Or for that matter, reviews on latest cell phones etc.

          So more than being beneficial to us, I am just thinking it from the perspective of Users.

    The majority of Hub authors write across a wide range of topics, so the idea of listing completely unrelated Hubs (pages) in chronological order for either aesthetics (worst rationale I've ever heard) or usability just doesn't exist here.

    The group feature allows you to customize how your Hubs are organized, and readers can move through those arrangements.

      Who said there should be listing of un-related hubs chronologically? There are different categories for instance politics, social issues, etc. and Hubs can be chronologically arranged which fall under one such category.

      Regarding your comment of this being the worst possible rationale, I pity that inspite of being such a senior member of this community , you don't have the least courtesy to use right words to convey your point.

        Yes, but that's not what you said.  You simply said that Hubs should be listed "month-wise".

        You are now saying Hubs should be listed chronologically within each category.  That's a different suggestion. 

        As for next and previous links on your Hubs, you set that up yourself using Groups.
