My First Hub: Fire Away HP Community!

    So I just wrote and finished my first hub yesterday, and saw that it was published and featured today. I was really excited but after reading through a bunch of forum posts it seems that getting featured here isn't too big of a deal. So I was wondering whether or not my hub is actually any good and what it is I can do to improve. I think I might need a bit of help choosing more "Evergreen" topics, but I'm sure I'll hit a few of those after I write a few more hubs.

    Thanks for your help guys, and here's the link to my first hub:

      Thanks! It's actually a lot more reassuring hearing this from one of you community members as opposed to the system haha

    Time will tell my friend. Traffic starts to get interesting after 3 month-old hubs, so I have experienced with mine. But people say that after 6 months its even better.

        Not my forte either I stopped writting after 3 weeks and 16 hubs because I was just making 10 t 15 cents a day. But after not doing nothing for 3 months my traffic on those 16 hubs combined rose up 3 times and I´m now making between 30 to 60 cents a day, for doing nothing! Its till very little but just imagine if I continued to writte. The growth here sarts slow but it gets somewhat exponential with time thanks to your followers, growing experience and searching traffic that favors old pages with continous traffic. Pump it up with social sharing, there are facebook groups of hubpages fans that will share your content just for being part of the community.

          Cool, so I guess it would be smart to make it to the point where I can get an adsense account, then if I really want to just take a break for a while I can. And yea I will check those FB groups out, they'll be a lot of help for sure-when you don't have too much of a following.
