I've got an etiquette question

    I posted a short new hub on the about English and American language differences about an hour ago. It's not a heavy or serious piece with serious references, but in it I put external links and links to three other hubs which relate to the subject.  It never occured to me to ask permission from the other hubbers before I did it.  Should I have? and if so what do I do now-- is there an established author etiquette on this?

      I don't know about established ettiquette, but in general traffic is good, so links from other Hubs are good, and I certainly wouldn't mind if it were me you were linking to!

    I think most people see it as a good deed and a kindness.  I don't usually ask permission because I assume so and I know I'm always thrilled when someone chooses to link to one of my hubs.

    I can't speak for everyone, however, but the logic is that if it gets them more hits, they probably appreciate it.

    whew--thanks all of you for the quick response and for easing my mind.  I was pretty sure nobody would mind, but thought I'd better check--don't want to make a "hub-gaffe" smile

    Another Hubber recently included a link to one of my Hubs and I was thrilled to bits.  It's a compliment, after all.

    I would let the other hubber know, though.  I would LOVE to know if someone linked to me!
