    I joined Hub a few months ago but didn't really know what I was doing so I didn't receive any feedback on my writing. I've added some new Hubs recently and hopefully I'm learning how to get it right. I'm not a young man; I don't want to waste my time if my writing is just a lot of drivel. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

      Firstly life is for risk takers, never give up in life. Writing hubs is a great activity which serves you in many purposes, firstly it garnishes your knowledge, grooms your writing skills and also fetches money for you. May be the responses are not upto the mark initially but later as your quality and quantity will improve you can witness lots of appreciation for you. If you feel that your hubs are not being viewed then you can also add a back link for your hubpage on various other sites.

      So keep it up and I surely believe that one day we can see lots of feedback for your hubs. Good luck

      I really enjoyed this hub as you can tell by my rather lengthy comment.  The flow of your story is good with only the usual minor punctuation and grammar lapses. 

      I would suggest breaking the larger paragraphs into several smaller ones as writing on the internet seems crowded and busy unless this is done. I also makes it easier on the readers eyes. A must do if you expect readers to complete the hub.

      Also, try to find some related pics to display with your article. You'd be amazed how much this helps a reader stay interested in the story. 

      Just some photos related to your tale will add color and break up the monotony of the page. Examples-Pink Madonna Tee shirt, a religious figurines etc. you get the idea. Color images makes your page more pleasant and gives the reader an image to relate to.

      These are my personal opinions and are, by no means, the last word on this particular facet of page presentation.

        I found this suggestion helpful to me for my first hub. I read forums and certain helpful topics before writing the hub, I took an existing image from the internet because my only other option was to create a hole in my own wall and photo step by step of how I repaired it, That seemed a little extreme to me. I published the hub and will add pictures as they become available.

    Writing hubs is a developmental thing, so the more you write, the more you will learn and the better your hubs will become.

    Also tune into the forums and read the threads about SEO, keywords, hub writing etc?

    Don't give up before you have really begun, it takes time to get followers and comments, so patience! smile

    If only to write hubs and be discouraged because you seem not to be read by many, then that's an absolutely a not so self-motivating attitude. Somehow, I understand it would really cross our minds to just quit when others aren't attracted by our writings. Perhaps, sir, we have to read more to apply the helpful tips posted in here, that would increase our traffic and readers. I myself hadn't posted my first hub, as I haven't finished it yet. I don't know if anybody would ever read it, but it would certainly excite me to know by then if even one person would come across of it.
      Don't give up, sir. More than the money that might go with this, this writing hubs is a venue of personality growth, this in anyway is a manifestation of a moment of truth that we could do differently from the things we usually do in our everyday life... Hang on sir, and one day you'll just be surprised you've got a lot of followers already.
