Can I use British UK Spelling in my hubs as it was the spelling I grew up with?
i use british spellings too. No problem so far
You can do, certainly, but you might find you don't get much traffic (or not as much as you could get if you used US spellings).
Thanks for your responses calculus-geometry and blessedp, I use the UK spelling format in my hubs but wanted to to get clarity on whether it can be used or not. It's difficult to change one's spelling especially as I still use it for emails and any kind of correspondence and writing.
Very often, the automated spell checker in the text capsules tells me a word is incorrect - so I simply right click on it, and add it to the dictionary.
A few of my hubs have words that are not commonly found in the English language; botanical names, recipe titles, etc. Once I "add them to the dictionary", the red underlining doesn't show up when I use that word again.
You probably already know that, but someone else might not, so I thought I would mention it.
Thanks for your input Shades-of-truth but wouldn't this only apply to the American Spelling format?
DaveOnline, I would imagine it applies to any language's format. Quite a few words that I use have foreign origins, and as long as I right-click on the word that shows up as being incorrect - select "Add to Dictionary", and save the capsule, it works.

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community. However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see. Even if the writing is fresh and lively, if the spelling, punctuation, or grammar are poor, then...

We're testing out a Facebook Social Plugin at the bottom of the sidebar on hubs. It shows personalized activity feeds (the most interesting recent activity taking place on HubPages) and personalized recommendations (hubs). You can read more about it and other plugins here.

It's great that HubPages automatically includes rel=author on all our hubs pointing to out profile. But Google gives me an error message stating that my HP profile page has rel=author pointing to itself. This is not correct and needs to be removed in the profile. Profiles should not have...
