Is it permissable to post a Hub under 'John MacNab' but headline it as 'Written By' - another name?
Similar to 'Nora Roberts' writing as 'J.D. Robb'?
I would think that by doing so, it would make a lot of casual Hub readers think you had plagiarized the Hub and result in the content getting flagged.
Why not just use the username you have now?
I hadn't considered that relache. I'll just leave things as they are. My reason for wanting the 'written by' byline is because I want to write some Hubs from a feminine point of view, and I thought they may take them more seriously if people thought they were written by a woman.
Thank you very much for your answer.
I guess 'John MacNab' is a bit of a giveaway..., but why don't you just write one anyway, and see if your content, and perspective, is read and accepted regardless?
I wrote a Hub in a 'Dear Abby' vein, which required the 'writer' to be an innocent 16yr old girl, living in a remote farming location. It was just a more engaging, fun way of approaching the topic of my 16th Hub, and it was well-received. (Although I suspect one commenter was momentarily confused...)
I checked your profile and I see that you like to add a touch of humour. Don't know if that applies to the Hubs you're contemplating; but it is the great leveller, as you of course already know....
I do agree with relache, I think your attempts at honesty/clarity would be very likely misunderstood both by Hubbers, and worse, by the Gods of Duplicate Content. Of whom I fell foul in a Hub satirising the Queen's famous Annus horribilis speech. I had it reinstated, but it wasn't a pleasant experience.
Best of luck, whichever way you go.
