I am new to posting on hubpages and would love constructive criticism. Thanks for taking the time and effort to give me your feedback!
You have lots to offer, very strong concepts and important experience to share. But you need to reach more readers.
I'm not a professional Hubber, but I have got some top ranked hubs in my areas of interest with some pretty good traffic. Here are some suggestions:
1) I'd take the caps locks off on your basic content. Only bold the headings.
2) I'd break up your paragraphs into 2 and sometimes one "chunks". I've learned that the shorter the sentence and paragraph the better. Most visitors just skim.
3) I'd use smaller photos (you can reduce their size and even leave the top right section free for adds etc.
4) I'd do some research on how to find "niche keywords" for your Hub-titles. You want to find actual Google keyword search terms and phrases that your target audience out there is actually typing in, but with manageable competition.
5) Again, you have so much to offer prospective readers out there. You could really make a positive difference in the lives of others. Please, keep writing and learning about how to structure and present what you are writing.
I hope that helps and I'll be looking for more of your Hubs in the near future!
Thanks so much for your input and suggestions. I'm not sure what you mean about breaking up paragraphs into "2 and sometimes one chunks." Do you mean to make the paragraphs smaller?
I will try to do a google key-word search...probably something I need to learn to do anyway.
Sorry about that typo of mine. I guess I was trying to say "chunk-down" the paragraphs. http://www.copyblogger.com/scannable-content/
You'll see this chunk down technique with some amazing Hubber's and top Bloggers too. Here's 1 Top Hubber-example of chunk-down writing:
I loved the simplicity and flow of Mark Ewbie's writing and then gradually went on to learn about this 2 sentence paragraph rule.
Sometimes, it's just a 1 sentence paragraph.
It's not "proper writing," but since I've applied it my articles have really taken off. I basically went through and broke-down my paragraphs into 3 or 4 smaller chunks.
I then tried to further simplify each chunk so as not to sound like a jargon-monger. It worked.
Just wanted to add:
1) Don't forget to cross link your Hubs. For example in one Hub you refer back to another.
Make sure that you add a link to your other Hubs while editing. That's the chain link icon. You click on it and it opens up.
You then copy and paste from your address bar from above your other Hub (you can also get the short link under "stats" to copy/paste).
2) Also, link to Hubs with the select links button at the top of the Hub.
3) Look for and start treads and questions related to your area of knowledge and passion. That way you'll get a high rating as an answer-er. I'd hope hubs in the same way and help others that just arrive.
