I have a lot of areas of expertise and think it might be less overwhelming for me to generate an article or discussion based on particular questions that readers submit on a given topic etc...is this possible? I just signed up and haven't read everything on here but I wasn't able to find any info on this question anywhere so far...
It's possible, but I don't think it'd be very productive - the way HP is set up.
There's two ways you could do this, but you still need a substantial "header" for it. In other words, write a 500 word introduction to what you're answering questions about.
First method: Use comment boxes. I don't know if it's still regulated to one comment box or if you can have multiple boxes. If I remember right, in the past, you could have more than one comment box. I never used more than one, but it may be possible. If not, one hub per topic, and answer the questions through comments.
Second method: Use polls and quizzes. This really doesn't offer you direct interaction with the reader, but it offers the reader direct interaction with the article.
Hope this helps.
Maybe. I have a few "FAQ" style hubs, but they are not attracting much traffic.
You are probably better off writing a traditional article-style hub, with an FAQ section that address common questions.

I used to answer every question on that article but it gets so many questions and I have no time to keep answering questions. Just curious how important is it to answer people's...

Do you think it is tacky to post a link to your hub in a comment you leave for someone else?I can not bring myself to leave a link to one of my hubs in a comment I write to other people. I see that others do and I am curious what the general reaction is to that. I am not saying it is good or bad......

What are the potentially cons of not using a comment box?I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over again. I'm tired of getting rude comments. I'm tired of dealing with it basically. I want to help people, but answering the same question over and over again or having to defend myself...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...
