I am new to writing blogs and to this site. I am finding the navigation fairly easy but still trying to figure out how best to manage what I am doing and do this correctly. I have noticed that each hub seems to be a stand alone article... do we create a new hub for each blog we write?? Anyone who has advice and guidance for me would be much appreciated. :-)
For starters this is not a blogging site. Hubs are supposed to be stand alone articles and they are not supposed to be personal.
You can write hubs from a personal point of view but should offer something to people who don't know you.
Yeah.. sorry. Still trying to get all the terminology right too. :-) I am going to be writing a series of hubs about gems, jewelry and metals from the scientific point of view for educational purposes. I am a GIA trained AJP and also more than half way through my GG. I am hoping to help the general public to understand gemology and the jewelry business so they they can go into buying from an informed place and not get taken advantage of. :-)
I have also seen some hubs with photos down the right side of the hub text... how do I do that??
Hi Deb - photos are reasonably easy to add either use your own or one that you have the right to use. Add the photos - there is a capsule for photos as well as a text capsule. You can then move the capsules about by the navigation arrows up/down left/right.
You will find the learning centre link at the bottom of the page has useful advice and also worth a look is the FAQ - helpfully called here the help button at the top of the page.
When you are positioning your photo capsules - try to look at the preview view as this will show you where the ads are going to go as this affects your layouts.
Also the layout of hubs is to be changed soon so you may want to look at the forum post about that too.
Sorry - long post hope it explains things OK.

I can't figure it out. My hubber score has been in the 94-96 range for a year or more. Now I notice it seems to be falling. Today, it is 89. If I were to graph it, it would show a downward trend. I know this should not...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these...
