Just signed up today and been looking around. Not sure how things work yet or if my writing is ok or if I should just give it up now. Any and all feedback is welcome.
Hi Jeanie, welcome to Hubpages
First of, I just want to say that I read and liked your hub, but you need to break the text up to make it easier on the eye - maybe with a photograph or two.
As to the subject matter, it is called "Unemployment", but someone searching for that word probably isn't looking for your personal story so maybe you should rename it to something that actually describes what your hub is about, which is your personal and unexpected state of unemployment which as a registered nurse I sincerely hope won't be for too long.
Just recently on Hubpages, they have been unpublishing hubs that they feel are too personal and as such don't offer much to the reader, and to be honest you hub is, IMO (not that I know anything) borderline...I mean, I enjoyed it...but would the public out there find something useful in it? Maybe they'd be shocked that RN's are treated this way? I'm probably rambling now...just tell me to shut up.
Try and think of a title that better describes your hub, and maybe add in a bit more about (for example) how to go about claiming unemployment? Don't take anything out, because you've told it like it is which is important, but try and add something for the reader who has searched out those keywords to find you.
Welcome to Hubpages. I hope you enjoy your stay and write some insightful and well balanced Hubs.
Thank you Izzy. I appreciate your feedback and will use it to hopefully improve on my writing. I was planning on doing a follow up to this first Hub and your comments will be helpful to me.
Here is a big welcome for you. Never give up. We learn from everything, and that is never bad. Once you begin to get the hang of things you'll be great.

I published my first hub today. The first comment I got remarked that my hub was funny. It's not. I can see that maybe a scan of the first paragraph might lead a casual reader to think that the hub may be going in an...
