    Hello!  I just joined hubpages a few days ago to try my hand at blogging.  I figure most of my hubs will end up being more of the 'how to' variety since I create many things.  I have put up two hubs that I would like to share.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Making-your-own-vanilla-extract

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Making-roses-wi … m-frosting

    Are these helpful?  Do they make sense?  Are there too many photos?  Not enough?  Anything else I can do to help?  Any input would be appreciated!

    Hello again,

    Okay, let's start with some of the basic stuff.

    (a) quality type hubs are written for a length of 600+ words.
    (b) utilize as many tools as you can when creating a hub but try not to make look cluttered. (polls, more pictures, amazon capsules)
    (c) keywords/tags are very important and should range between 9-15
    (d) try to add fresh content(RSS feeds or News feeds). This will always keep your hub fresh with content so that GOOGLE crawlers/bots come to your hub, because it recognizes new content.

    I'm putting some links below, so as to help you with your improvements.

    Frogdropping: She produced two excellent reads for new hubbers.

    It is important to know that there is a lot more and other good reads can be found by Nelle Hoxie, Ryankett, Thisisoli, Relache, Shadesbreath and so many others.

    I hope this helps. smile Please do enjoy your time here. smile

      Ok, I added more tags to my hubs.  I also signed up with Amazon and was approved today.  I like how that one works!  I really like that I was able to put specific ads for vanilla beans in the my vanilla extract hub.  Several people had asked me where I get those and now there is a link directly to the product right in my article.  Very useful!

      Also, after looking at some other how-to pages I decided to re-arrange my rose hub.  I do like it better now! 

      I expect I'll get better at it as I go.  I'll keep looking at what other people are doing and maybe someday I'll even make a little cash. smile  Thanks for the info!
