I've just recently found HubPages, and have only written one hub. I'm a busy mom and full time college student, so I would like to get some feedback on the one hub before I put too much more time into additional hubs. I'm sure that not everyone cares about the topic, but did I set the hub up properly, is it written in an appropriate manner, did I set up the amazon capsule correctly? I was rejected by the eBay affiliate, so I cannot add anything from them, but I signed up for all of the other listed affiliates. I don' quite understand a lot of the intricacies of HubPages yet, so perhaps if there is something that is glaringly wrong someone will be kind enough to let me know.

I'd say you have done pretty well for a first effort. Some photos would help-- but those can be added later. One thing that can help the layout is to kick your Amazon capsule over to the right. and move it up
(Go to edit-- use the arrows at the top of the capsule) . You will learn more just by experimenting a bit.
Oh and your soup sounds yummy.
thanks so Rochelle when you mentioned that capsule could be moved up and over a light bulb came on... ever have one of those dumb moments where someone says something and the world is barn again new... well not that good but darn near!!
Looks good. I would suggest giving each section (ingredients, preparation, etc.) it's own separate text capsule. And I agree about adding some pics.
Thanks for the advice! I'll have to figure out how to do the separate text capsules when I get a bit of time. I'm going to take some pictures the next time I make the soup so I can post them on the hub.

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

For the first time since writing at HP, I have had an email saying that a Hub cannot be featured because it has "spammy elements." The email goes on to say that it could be that an ad is not related to the topic. I have only got one amazon capsule on the Hub in question (which I have now...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...
