As you can see from title of this post, I just joined HubPages.
I'm trying to learn my way around and hope it want take too long! LOL
I'm a bit of foreigner here (and literally since I'm from Croatia) so please be so kind and assist me in my first steps here.
I published my first hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/reusing-before-trashing and would appreciate any advice, suggestion or critique you might have!
Welcome please check out my article advise to a new hubber as it will give you some tools to use and we are happy that you are here!!!
Thanks for warm welcome!
Read your article. Nice and simple put together. Think I follower most of it so far!
Looked around for people I know and became their fan, posted few comment to several hubs by others, added avatar, added picture to my first hub, came here and say hi!
Do you have any suggestions how to improve my first hub? Is it too long, too short? Enough informations inside?
Hi Michelle and welcome to hubpages! I'm sure you'll love it here.
That's a pretty good hub for your first time! It looks like you did a little research before just "tossing out a first hub" like most newcomers. You've got some different capsules and even a picture.
Since you're asking for help, here's some brief advice:
The hubs that do the best are hubs with lots of good, relevant content as well as several pictures and videos. Your layout looks quite good, but maybe adding at least 3-5 more pictures and a couple videos would help it even more.
Hubs that look as sharp as yours and that have multiple photos, videos, other capsules and good content are bound to succeed. They get more traffic, more adsense income and more comments!
BTW, what do you use to make links in your profile page and not add complete url?
1. If you go into edit text capsule and first highlight some text
2. In the top right of the edit box you'll see a link symbol (like a piece of chain).
3. Click of the link symbol and you will be prompted to supply the full URL.
4. The highlighted text will now turn blue and when clicked, links to the URL you input.
Hope this answers your question. Also if you want to do several links you can use a link capsule. Welcome to HubPages!
Thanks a bunch Rik!
I'm off to take care of that!
Edited to add: Done! Yay!
We bids you greetings and salutations from around the world, michelle! a wonderful bunch of people here & you will have fun
What do ya know i joined yesterday too! What a small world we live in.
I noticed this post has been moved from 'Knowledge exchange' to 'Extreme Hub Makeover'... Thanks to forum moderator (who ever you are ) and sorry for posting in wrong place.
Thanks for welcome Dame Scribe and Killatia!
And thank you, AEvans for coming back and answering my questions!
You are all very friendly and I'm glad I have met you here!
Nice to find you here... I wondered how long it would take you to get here. And you finally did. Welcome!!! Welcome!!!
It's quite different here. Equally diverse and great...
You might be wondering who I am... I'll leave that to your imagination.
Hi there Michelle, I agree with all that WeddingConsultant said. Taking the advice about photos and videos should work very well in your favor. I'm looking forward to reading your work.- Journey
And thank you two, Journey and PoppaBlues for saying hi and welcoming me!
I took a look at your hubs and see that I'll have to work harder to became as good as you!

Many of us met HP by chance. Many of us came here looking for a way to earn and many of us came to express ourselves. For me it was a mixture of both.I wanted to make money with the thing I love to do the best...writing. However, there are some things I wish I knew back then. What is the one thing...

Does this number mean unique visitors? or can it be a result of my numerous revisions today. I probably went back and forth 50x today.Thanks and God BlessTina Marie
