    I asked this question in the "Question" section but no one answered.  Let me try it here.


    "Who is the first Hubber, and presumably wrote the first Hub. Can I get to read it?"

      Even I'd like to know the answer to that! Very unlikely we'll find out...

      A follow-up question would be, which came first, the Hub or or the Hubsite? That is, was a hub written first before the site became active?

        The company would come first, before a hub could even be written, officially. wink

    Probably the question was not answered because it is similar to "who was the first man". We likely will have a crop of religions soon arguing the issue - like Paulianity, Jasonism, etc. smile

    Well, my deduction would be Ralph Deeds.

    He has been here 4 years, and written over 700 Hubs.

    When doing a search, the 76th page and last hub on that page is the link below.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Thistle_Michian … onships_06

    Without confirmation from Ralph Deeds or Paul Deeds, I do not know which hub he actually wrote first 4 years ago.

    From Wikipedia  "The site launched in August 2006 after collecting a $2 million investment from Hummer Winblad. According to Quantcast, HubPages has become one of the 70 most visited US sites on the Internet. In June 2010, it received around 33 million visits and over 89 million page views , which, according to the site, were across over 830,000 pages published by more than 150,000 published users.

    In May 2010, HubPages was recognized as one of the “2010 Hottest Silicon Valley Companies” by Lead411"
