Please take a look at my hub pages. Let me know if the writing style, format layout and content are meaningful and useful.
I am trying to see if I can be a better member of this community, and eventually increase my revenue, from the sharing revenue aspects of the ads that appear on my hub pages.

Here are a few thoughts and ideas:
* A better name for "The Guitar Hub" might be "A review of the Martin model 5-18 guitar" or something like that. It does a better job of describing what the hub is about.
* Who is your intended audience for The Guitar Hub? If you are primarily concerned about traffic, then this is a good question to ask yourself. Who would want to read this hub and what information are they most interested in? Your hub starts off with a very personal explanation of the history of your family's guitar. There is nothing wrong with that, but people just looking for information about guitars might not care what year your family bought theirs, because it isn't relevant to them. Sometimes, personal anecdotes are great. Just make sure that they make sense for the purpose of your hub. (If your intent with this hub was to tell a personal story -- and not so much to give the reader information about a guitar -- then you can safely ignore me on this point.)
* In a number of places, you have urls in the text that aren't links. Do you know how to create a link within the text capsule? You just highlight the text that you want to make into a link and click on the little icon that looks like a chain.
Hope this helps!
Wow, Fawntia, I shall have to take back what I said in my Hub about you being shy and retiring! You've really started making an impact in the forums.
This is really great advice you're giving people about writing - more than just a tech guru, eh?
Off to update Hub ...
Actually, Jenny, you got it right the first time. I am pretty shy. But it's easier to not be shy online ...
I would never start a hub with an image: I prefer them lower in the hub so that I get the best adsense placement around the top of the hub . One of the strengths of hub pages is the control of adding images/videos/link modules - use these to break up yoru blocks of text.
Are you hubbing for money or fun? Topics like speculation on the future of the world are fun to write but they won't make you any money - been there done that !
Thanks Fawtina for the tip about creating a link within the text capsule. I didn't know that.

My friend and fellow hubber found a hub that was very adult with nudity in it. I am just curious, I thought in the TOS that it said nudity was not allowed here at Hubpages.
