    I've just published my first hub after repeatedly coming to the forums and reviewing responses to help messages which saved me enormous frustration and time especially using the capsule system.

    I would seriously appreciate a critique. I want to do this well.

    Here is the link: … rl-Markets

    Thanks in advance. I noticed how generous hubbers are with their knowledge and it's very impressive.

    I'm new here too, and I've left comments on others works, but get very little response so far- its harder than other publishing sites, it seems- but I'm probably wrong. well- I'll read yours and leave a comment-

    Welcome to Hubpages! Your hub is great, very detailed and has pictures, a great start. At the end you have a link to amazon, I suggest making them an affiliate and putting links to the books your directing people to in the capsule, so you have a shot of making revenue!

    Other then that everything seems great, I don't have a real interest in pearls other then finding them somewhere and selling them, but other then that it's a great hub and I hope you enjoy it here at hubpages like us!

    Thanks for the input. I did sign up for Amazon, but I guess they're not showing the relationship.I'll look into it.
