I want to continue to create new capsules within my blog, but I don't want my readers to have to continually scroll down. How do I archive some capsules, to make room for more current posts? Can I archive old text capsules, but create links of some kind, that my readers can access?
Welcome to Hubpages! Please do not refer to your Hubs as Blogs. There is clearly a difference between the two.
Please visit the FAQ's page and the Learning Center, so you can get a better grasp of "What Is a Hub"?
You are unable to do so. If you would like to hide capsules, you can do that, but then again, technically that would be archiving them. However, once you make a capsule unseen, it cannot be retrieved by the reader, but can be retrieved by you, unchecking the box that which makes it unseen.
If what you have written is worth reading people don't have a problem rolling down a page.
The best solution would be to create a new hub. They can be linked either in the text or by putting them in groups in your back office. If someone likes your information they don't have a problem following a link either.
New hubs help you though, they will raise your numbers and create a new place for keywords which help search engines find your work.
Laurie, I think you're misunderstanding what HubPages is all about. A Hub is not a blog.
A Hub is like an article you would read in a magazine. It's complete in itself - you don't keep adding to it once it's written (unless you need to update something, or improve it). If you want to write about a different subject, you don't add it to the same article - you start a new Hub.
Wheelinallover's advice is good. 400 words is fine for a Hub, but longer is always better.
If you add Amazon capsules to advertise the book, make sure you sign up as an Amazon affiliate first, so you get commission if you make any sales.
I just took a few minutes, you have the potential to be one of the better authors here. My professional opinion would be to make a new hub for every book you have read. This does away with the idea of your one hub being so long.
In your back office link them all together, it doesn't take much to do this. If you don't understand how ask. Most of the writers here have figured it out, some with help, some without. We are a community and what is good for one is usually good for all.
Another suggestion would be to find out if Amazon carries the book and put an Amazon capsule where the reader can purchase it from your hub. The criteria for this is each article must be 500 words and be pertaining to the book. I noticed you were close with quite a few.
Add pictures and maps where they work. This will keep someone on your hub a few seconds longer. Each second increases the chance of a sale.
Video's if you can find them work well also. As of this writing about 50% of searches are for video information. If you have the ability to make your own, you can pack a lot of information in a ten minute video.
Wheel, this is excellent advice...
Also, to further this idea, think about how you'll earn an income from your Hub. By creating one hub for each book, and including an amazon link, you'll encourage readers to purchase the book themselves. In addition, AdSense will pick up on keywords from your article and display relevant ads, also increasing your opportunity for earnings.
Also, if all of your hubs are going to be more or less book reviews, you may want to add that into your profile information. Remember, your profile is also picked up in the major search engines, so it could be a target for generating traffic to your articles as well.
I wish you the best! I think you'll do great here!
Thank you to everyone who replied about my "archiving" question. Could someone point me in the right direction as to what my "back office" is, and how I find it? Thanks again!

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...
