    Hello, my name is Kathleen. I am a writer from NJ new to hubpages. I have posted nine hubs I believe but haven't popped my head in to say hello so I just wanted to stop in the forums and introduce myself! If any experienced hubbers would do me a huge favor and look over my hubs and give me some feedback that would be really, really appreciated! Thanks guys! <link snipped>

      Hi Kathleen and Welcome to HP! I popped in on a couple of your Hubs and think you're off to a great start. I'm anxious to get back and read a couple more that caught my eye.

      I always feel like I'm not doing any justice if I don't offer any advice but I don't have any here. I did notice however that you may have hit the "enter" key a time too many in your Hub about religion and war. It was in a later paragraph. Nothing big but it did pop out at me.

      Hey there and welcome! I'd say that you are off to a good start with your writing. I will admit that I only read two of your hubs, but what I read was very well written.

      My only suggestion would be to make sure that you rad over your hubs before you publish them. I know I sometimes I miss mistakes when I work on something for too long, but if I go back after not thinking about it for a few hours I find all my mistakes. I wish you the best of luck!

    Salutes n hoots from a fellow Jerseyan. The only advice I can offer is to have fun and write well.

    Hello Kathleen from one Jersey-an to another. Welcome to HP. After reading work which you wrote well, the advice which I would suggest is before you publish is to let it sit for a day and then reread it again to check for errors.

    Welcome Kathleen.  My advice to you is this - think about your audience.  If you want search engine traffic, you need to make sure your titles and subtitles have keywords - things that someone will put in a search engine to find the article. 

    Read the Learning Center entries - lots of useful information there.

    I recommend search engine route, since your traffic will last longer.

    If you want social networking traffic, you need to make sure your hub follows the criteria for going viral:
