        Thanks for taking the time to read it, and  I took your advise. Both tips are really good, but the one about the boarder I do not think I would have ever noticed that if you did not tell me.

      I found your article quite informative. The videos are also quite appropriate to explicit what you wanted to highlight in your article. I found it writing flawless. So, I am really not sure about what tips should I give you. I also wrote my first hub article few days before. Can you please take some time out to read it and please give me some tips about how to improve. … t-Software

      Great hub! Jam packed with valuable information and well presented.  I would put a photo at the top of the page to draw the readers in.  If you want to save the space for an ad at the top, put it right underneath where the ad would be - maybe the second paragraph of your hub?

      I did see some white spaces that don't look right - make sure there aren't any spaces at the end of your text capsules.

      I would recommend looking over the hub with a fresh eye for editing changes.  I regularly make mistakes that I don't notice until I look at my hub later.  For example, you did not capitalize United States in the second paragraph.  It is a minor issue, but if your hub turns out to be a Hub of the Day or Rising Star (which I think it deserves), people will be criticizing the little things.

      The biggest thing would be images.  Be sure you are using images that you have the right to use, and attribute them properly.   See this Learning Center entry for how-to:

        Thanks Millionaire, I reread my post and fount a few mistakes like you said things i did capitalize, missing words, and so on nothing to big, I also added a pic at the top.  I'll have my husband take a look at it when he gets home from work to see if he can see anything I missed. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
