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?
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.
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.

Without confirmation from Ralph Deeds or Paul Deeds, I do not know which hub he actually wrote first 4 years ago.
Hi Ray, I am fine, just kidding around. How bout yrself?
come on Misha - you must know the answer - who was the first to write a hub - it had to be tested right?
From Wikipedia "The site launched in August 2006 after collecting a $2 million investment from Hummer Winblad.

I just finished editing a Hub and signed out. Then I called up the Hub only to get this terrible message that puts a very bad light on Hubbers as possible violators of "The Code."What a poor image this gives the public. Being new to HB, my reaction is one of a public person who knows...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

Hello to everyone.Yesterday I created my HubPages account and published my first Hub. I also already answered one question (on 'answers' section), followed some topics. What is making me frustrated is that since the time my account was created, my Hubber Score has only been dropping, no matter what...

I am so frustrated and angry right now. I wrote a hub on how to make plant pots from newspaper for free, only a couple of weeks ago. One fellow Hubber 'Harlan Colt', placed the following comments on my hub:"I love this hub! I have so many newspapers laying around I can make pots for days! What...
