    It seems like you guys are willing to help, and I'm in desperate need of help. Seems like a marriage made in heaven. smile

    I could use some advice on improving the content. I also notice that I don't get many comments, and my overall hub rating is starting to go down.

    Any ideas to improve the writing, make it more interesting and of a higher quality would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You.

      I will have a look and I'm sure others will be along and do the same smile

      First of all though - find a nice avatar picture. That's always a good way to start.

      But don't look to mine as a measurement. I'm stupid big_smile

          lol now go back to your profile and tell us who you are - as in a little about you or something aong those lines. It's nicer when someone visits your profile page to actually see something there smile

          Again, don't look at mine, I'm an idiot and couldn't sell myself if I spat gold bars out every time I opened my mouth neutral

        If it wasn't for the madness, life would be way too predictable smile

      First of all, get used to the fact that HubScores fluctuate.  That's just how things work here.  Second, you might like this Hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/Boosting-HubScores

        That's a great article. Thank you for sharing it, and for the advice. I'll try not to worry about the score so much.

    Ok read one, scanned another.

    You could tighten up the content, so that it reads with a little more flow. That said, the content is there, just a little polish.

    Break up the capsules with pictures, use headers to separate different sections of the article. The link you inserted in the one I read? Put it into a seperate link capsule and insert it back into the hub, where it's in the most appropriate position.

    Read through the following, then read the other articles that are linked within -  How Hubpages Works

    Check out other hubbers work, so that you get an idea of presentation etc.

    I hope that helps - and welcome to hubpages smile

    Frogdropping has already nicked everything I was going to say!  And I think ALL new Hubbers should study the Hubs in that link before writing a single Hub.

    Thanks for the wonderful tips, and that link. I've created a better (in my opinion) profile message, and am working on a new hub using the techniques suggested in the links I was referred to in this forum.

    Thanks for the help, and I'm sure I'll be coming back often!

    Edit - that should do nicely. Very good student you are wink

      kowings is my young apprentice. He's my very own pet.

      Sorry. I mean my Frog Padawan ... neutral

        If being a pet will lead me to a 99 rating and 328 fans, then you can get a leash and send me to obedience school. smile

          Frogs don't do leashes. However, I can stretch my benevolence to letting you be known as a froglet.

          Ask away my young padawan. I will tell you all I know from those I learned from on HP. None of which is a secret and all of which involves hard work and effort on your part smile
