#1 question among people new to HubPages: What are Hubs and why would I want to write them?

Here are just 3 examples that continue to earn their authors money:

Banks that Reimburse ATM Surcharges

It does seem incredibly redundant for HubPages to have sent you that email. I mean, do you think you've gotten the hang of the site yet? LOL....
I think that I may be able to throw a hub together now the email contained useful links and advice, i will give it a try sometime this week lol.....jimmy
I just posted my very first hub. I went to a lot of trouble to include beautiful color photos from Africa. When I copied what I wrote, I was so disappointed that no pictures came out in the article., How do I correct this? How do I add photos to this hub?
Michael,i have looked at your profile and i dont see your hub.
to add pictures to a hub you have to open a pictures capsule and do the rest from there.....jimmy
p.s welcome to hubpages
Yeah I got the bulk email about how to start a hub too - I think someone hit the wrong button!

I'm fairy new to Hub Pages, but one of the things I really enjoy is reading through the Hub Hopper - you never know what topic is going to pop out at you OR how good or bad the next article will be, ha!

Hello everyone! The Forums sure have been interesting lately! Many Hubbers have noticed our new publishing standards and site policies, many of which have been introduced as a response to a search algorithm change (dubbed the Panda update) that Google rolled out in February. Many...
