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 am still unsure of the etiquette/protocol regarding whether or not to respond to comments made on articles that I have written. On the one hand it seems rude not to acknowledge comments but, on the other hand, if there is nothing to write other than a thank you note it seems pointless. I think it...

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...

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...

Some times I get really dumb questions. For instance, some asked "Are dragons real?" are a hub that was all about the reasons for dragon myths and which made clear that dragons are not real. Should I give a brief response: "No, dragons are not real." Or should I just...
