    OK guys/girls. I'm new to HUB so perhaps I'm missing something here. I attempted to post a hub about humor writing but it was rejected as not containing enough content...I think.  I'm not quite sure the mechanics of writing in here and, being somewhat of a dummy, could use a step by step guideline as to what to do. I know there is information on the site, but it seems somewhat confusing. For instance, when I wrote a draft about humor writing I simply posted my blog site which is not a http sort of thing but just two words, "MisfitWisdom" so that anyone could go there and sample what type of humor I write on a daily basis. I also said that i would be willing to help anyone wanting to write humor.  Tried to post it and it was rejected.

      Welcome to HubPages. Other than what QuestionMaster has said you may want to have a look around as to what other's hubs look like and visit the Learning Center as well. There is so much great information there.

    Firstly, all the basics are here, in an easy to understand format:

    Hubpages is NOT a blog. Each hub should be a stand alone article - most visitors will come from search engines and never visit any of your other work. As a stand alone article, each hub should be (optimally) 400+ words, have some extra content such as a photo or video, polls etc.

    Thanks....too complicated for a humor writer such as myself. I like things simple and also to have the ability to actually contact the HUB what a concept. Human interaction. Guess Ill just stick to giving my daily blog humor to the 200 or so other people on Wordpress that can at least comment and have a good laugh. After all, that's all I have to offer.  Thanks for the comment however. .MisfitWisdom

      In the FAQ section link I gave you is a direct contact link.

      If you have a look at hubs by the likes of Mark Ewbie or Shadesbreath, you'll get to see two of the top humor writers on the site and how they set out their hubs.
