I joined the "hub-world" today. I read up on how to and what a hub is, and when I was ready to post my first hub, I was declared a dumb-ass (by myself).
I am so interested to start my first hub, but nowhere and I mean nowhere, does it show me where the main content of my hub must be written. Now all of you may laugh at this, but you are dealing with a highly educated businessman who has just been made a fool because when I started my first hub, I was clueless...even though "all" procedures are explained in advance. I may not be the ultimate hubber ever, but for Pete's sake, help me. I am sitting here so frustrated because sites like this assume that the minimum required knowledge of the NET is enough to understand the creating of a hub.
I have successfully written many blogs and even a hard-copy book, but this is beyond me. I try to create my first hub, but I cannot find the main content screen, and to top it all, I cannot find the delete button for the two I previewed as headings only....you make me look dumb.
Us old'uns get like this
Your hub is made up of text boxes - you have to hit the EDIT button at the top of the empty box and then put the text in it - this should lead you to self-discover the photo boxes (capsules) etc. Good luck from a reformed dumba@@
When I first started on the site (which was not quite two months ago) I found the Learning Center to be REALLY helpful. It will walk you step by step through all sorts of things, including making your first hub.

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it...

Not quite sure how this works or if it is at all possible, but can you start your own blog and run it alongside HubPages with say blogger.com or would this be wasting time and effort?

In the same vein as Mark's "unloved hubs" thread, can everyone share the hub they've written that they are most proud of? Then we can all pat each other on the backs and be proud together (and maybe...
