    In a way that is true because HubPages prominently displays the username next to the written work. But writing an article for Wikipedia can also be considered a publication (but it is rather anonymous and others can edit it, I must admit).

    ok if you say so. to me a published author is someone who has made money from writing but then again i did make $.01 on adsense.

    Yes, and I take this very seriously.  We all should.  Everything we publish is very, very public.

    For years I thought the only way to become a published author you had to have a book printed by a large company like G.P. Putnam's Sons publishers who has been around since 1838.To be recognized as an author.Then to make money from your book sales.If you got articles published in magazines and got paid for them.Both ways seemed out of reach to me and only a dream.Now the Hub Pages is making this possible.

    In a technical sense, yes, you are.  Then again all the idiots in Amway get business licences and some made up names and think they are all independent business owners. 

    There is nothing wrong with using Hubpages, and there are some talented people on here.  That being said, by calling anyone that puts something on the internet a "published author" by default diminishes the value of the term.

    Well it still feels a little surreal. Hard to believe. Internet makes life so much easier. Thank you hubpages.
