Here's my latest hub on education (I took Marissa's advice and I'm working on a series). Please take a look at it and let me know how the layout looks, and just what you think of it in general.
Thanks in advance for your help.
oops, I guess the link would help..
Very well written. Maybe 2 or 3 pics more ?
Looked it over and it looks very well done. The layout is nice and clean. The information is well presented as well. One thing I would note, the title is really really long. I don't know that you need to change it now, but for future hubs you might want to simplify the title a little.
I look forward to the rest of the series!!! My son is 3 and we plan on starting to homeschool next year. As you know though, he is already being schooled. It is never too early to start. Especially if it can be made fun!
Thanks for the advice about the title. I really struggled with making it interesting vs making it too long.
Homeschooling is awesome. You're going to have a lot of challenges, but a lot more great memories. I hope the rest of what I've got planned ends up being helpful.
Thanks for the feedback.
I struggle with my titles as well. Some time I just have to trust that people will click to find out more. As for the homeschooling, we are looking forward to it. I think my wife is a little more nervous than I am. Then again, she is the one home with all the kids. I can't really blame her there.
We're in the same boat (my wife doing the vast majority of the teaching). There are great resources online that will give her ideas. I also suggest getting involved with a local homeschool group. The other parents will be an invaluable source of information (not to mention adult time for mom).
You don't have to clutter it with pics. As I said 2 0r 3. And in other hubs you can add videos too. They help people stay in your hub longer
Looking good! I think the title is fine - your URL is nice and short, with no extra hyphens, and that's the main thing.
Personally, I would make this two Hubs. Take the whole section on the Leapfrog products, make it a new Hub and call it something like "Leapfrog Learning System for Homeschooling: a review". That will directly attract readers looking for information on the Leapfrog books, and they're primed to buy, so the Hub is likely to do well.
If you feel that leaves the first Hub a little short, add some Youtube videos and photos. Just remember to only use photos that are "legal" and credit the photographer if that's one of the conditions of use. Using a lot of photos doesn't have to look cluttered. Ring the changes between full-size photos or videos and right-floated ones, and take a look at how your text looks when they're done. I find I often need to split my text up into smaller paragraphs so they still read well next to the photos.
