Hey guys! So I'm new to the whole HubPages thing, just wrote my first only yesterday! (feel free to check it out) Any pearls of wisdom you lot feel like sharing with this newbie? Much appreciated!
Hi Jami, welcome
Congratulations on your first hub. It's very well written and you have a lovely 'voice'.
You can find tons of information in the Learning Center. There's lots there about layout, style, image use etcetera.
I don't think I can offer you much advice as I've only just written a hub myself, but your first is brilliant . I've got several friends that grew up in South Africa and the stories are sometimes truly shocking but incredible.
Looking forward to reading more!
Hi Jami Murphy! Welcome to HubPages!
I have read your hub and I must say it's very well written.
Also, I would like to add the following points:
1. I believe it is always better to write about topics that you are genuinely passionate about.
2. Avoid too much bold and italics.
3. While linking, be careful to only link those sites that are absolutely essential. HubPages doesn't want to drive readers to other websites. Make sure you cover all points in your hub itself.
4. Amazon products, if included, must be directly related to the title of your hub.
5. Callout capsules are good to highlight important points.
6. Tables are great to minimise information. Polls increase reader engagement.
7. Use bullets and numbering format to give your hub a neater look and make it easily scannable.
8. Always add images that are your own or those in the public domain (copyright free). Pixabay, Pexels.com and Morguefile.com are great for free images. Flickr is good too. But you need to search for images in the Creative Commons there.
9. Author Bio is a must for every hub. You can make upto 25 bios. Make sure you use them appropriately.
10. We are always here for any help in the forums. Good luck with your hubs!
Welcome SakinaNasir53. Where's your first hub or the link here? I'd like to wounded my way into the story and encouraged you.
Have a great time.
