    Hey everyone! I am new to hubpages.  I am trying to figure the site out.  I started a hub, but am confused on the issue of how much content to include in a hub.  DO I include just one article, or is it okay to include several on one topic?  Any help is appreciated!

      Wife2, think of each Hub as if you were writing an article in a magazine.  One topic per Hub.  But you want each Hub to be at least 400 words, and preferably 800 - 1,500 words.

    Welcome to HubPages.  The length is entirely up to you.  Most say your hub should be a minimum of 400-500 words, but others will tell you that you want in the 800-1200 range if you want to have a better shot of making some money with it.

    One topic per hub.  Got more topics? Make more hubs.

        Thanks Jane, apparently you are the only one who noticed my attaining the coveted 3 digit mark.  Some don't like to look at snakes, I guess!

    don't confuse with a blog , one topic per article as they said above ( although thats not an official rule as you could write about a few short topics but youre hub would not satisfy most readers that way ,leading to less clicks and less money)

    Don't feel bad wife2. I'm pretty new here too and still don't know what I'm doing??.L0L..I'm a horrible writer and I'm not here to make money or promote anything. I'm just here for fun and to meet far most everyone has been very nice and there are some great writers here and so many topics, I just don't have time to enjoy it all!
