    Is a hub like a blog? You can submit blogs to be published can you submit a hub in the same way?

    I saw a thing on Google that says "Submit Your Blog to & Become a Kindle Publisher". Are hubs like a blog in this way?

    I don't think hubs would work the same way with Amazon. The Amazon Kindle blog program allows people to subscribe to the blog in question. There's not a lot of point in subscribing to a hub because it doesn't get new posts added to it regularly.

    HubPages in its entirety is more like an online magazine with no single specific topic and a very low editorial threshold than a blog.

      I just figured out that you can submit your blog to rss. Not sure people know this so I will post how it looks

      Yeah I see what you are saying though about Amazon. I just didn't know about RSS feed

    Hubpages shouldn't be a blog, which is essentially an online journal / diary. It should be home to articles and some fiction.

    You shouldn't submit Hubs to Amazon Kindle - Hubpages wants unique content, which it isn't if you publish it via Amazon Kindle.

      I see your point. The kindle thing was just confusion as I had never heard of it. Getting my hubs out there via RSS was my question although I didn't realize it at the time. Thanks good answer.

    hubs are more like writing articles for Helium, or take it as a magazine. You can write a review but it cannot be copied and paste elsewhere

    Blog articles are short, unlike Hubs, they have no required word lengths to meet. Think of them as a length between a Tweet and a Facebook post.

    Another possibility is like a long answer in this box because they basically  are answers to readers who write in and ask questions about your subject in the blog. You write a post, it is read and those interested will write in with questions about it. Next you answer the question - which may be long or short - to try and explain as best as you can.

    This answer to your question may be a blog. It may also be longer or shorter than this depending on your post, or your answer to your reader.
