    Hey seasoned hubbers,

    I just wrote my first hub, a piece about European football and the things new and casual fans may not know but would be interested in. I added a few images and tried to break down the format into an easy to read article that would make it appropriate for readers and skimmers alike. I would appreciate any feedback you all may have. Thanks in advance!

    Mish … eague-Play

      I'm not a seasoned hubber, but woah, that was impressive. My first Hub here was absolutely appalling (and most of my current Hubs follow that same track...), but your Hub was awesome! I didn't know anything about European football, and really didn't think I wanted to know more, but once I started reading, I kept reading, learned a lot and realized I really enjoyed learning more! Nicely done!

      Welcome to Hubpages! I think you'll fit right in!

      The layout is very good. I skimmed the content and didn't see typos. The only thing I'd add is something from eBay. I don't always add eBay to my posts but there should be something interesting there which you could add in.

        I can't seem to get my adsense approved and you need it before they will let you add ebay. It's driving me nuts. I thought maybe I messed something up, but I can't figure it out. I did add amazon, do you think that helps?

          What is it about Adsense?   is there some sort of magic formula we need to apply to get their approval or does one simply go on writing just for the pleasure of it.!

            Haha! I know! I am looking around and it seems there are quite a few people running into issues with it. Ah well, I resubmitted. Now for the waiting game.

    Wow i am really impressed by what you achieved in just four days joining, i am also a newbie but maybe my hubs are not so interesting cause my visitors are very low. Hopefully i can make it better or make interesting hubs in the future.
