      First off, welcome to HubPages!  I appreciate your effort on the image!  smile  Unfortunately, this Hub couldn't be Hub of the Day because all of your images are not legally used and attributed.  I would spend a bit of time in our Learning Center; we have a lot of information that can help our new (and experienced) authors!  smile

      A couple other quick notes about your Hub:  you have Amazon products that are not related to your content (I would remove them) and quite a few spacing issues.  I have a feeling you are cutting a pasting from another document.  Make sure that your spacing is correct when you transfer your content over (this is a common mistake).  You also might want to have someone read through your Hubs; I can tell that you have some command of the English written language, but it's not perfect.  Hubs of the Day need to have high grammar scores.  smile  Best of luck to you!  You are off to a good start.  smile

        Hi Robin.. Can you tell me specifically why my images are not legally attributed to? I just wonder because I own those images.. I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

          Gosh, now I can't remember what I saw.  smile Did you change them or attribute them with your own name?  Your Flickr photo is almost right.  You need to share the license, e.g., Eastlake Times, CC BY, 2.0 via Flickr.  Your link is perfect!  Another very common error we see in new authors is including Amazon or eBay products when they aren't completely relevant.  It's unlikely someone will click on a product unless it's relevant to the content and extremely useful.  I personally believe that links to Amazon devalue your page unless they are helpful to your reader.  When I first started writing, I made this mistake as well.  smile  You are off to a fantastic start!  Did you use a the Topic Template when you created your Hub?  What did you think as a new user?

      Thats a good effort Marica and I do not think I can better Robin's answer, just keep track of all that and make sure your content speaks and allures your readers

    The photo looks good now!  Thanks for taking the time to change them.  smile I still would strongly consider removing the Amazon Capsules.  In fact, your Hub could be moderated because the products are unrelated.  It's up to you, but I think it gives you more clout as a writer when you only include Amazon Capsules when a product is needed, e.g., How to make a beaded necklace and the Amazon Capsules include the products needed to create the necklace.
