Hi, I'm looking for feedback on my hub. Please let me know what you think I can do to improve this hub (text? images? more capsules?). Please be honest! Thank you in advance

Way too many photos - although they tell a story.
Also where is your writing? You must have a word count at about 100?
Thanks for your feedback John!
The word count is 247 but I agree you make a great point about there being many pictures and few words.
No Worries Tim, like I said the photos tell a story and work really well. Back it up with good word count with choice keywords and it will be great!
I see that you are on the HubPages staff. What do you do there?
I looked at your hub and found it to be entertaining and fun to read. Some of the hints could be useful but I think you should change the presentation. The way it reads now, you have to buy the book and read your hub along with the book. If this were my hub, I would make it a stand-alone hub. You can mention the specific recipe you were following, but maybe have it be 5 Top Tips for Baking Bread or something like that. I would use text capsules instead of photo descriptions to describe the tips. They will be a bigger font so they stand out more. I would probably try to elaborate a bit in the capsules the problem and how your tip solves this problem. Definitely needs more words!
I don't know what knob cracked. Maybe that is just due to my unfamiliarity with dutch ovens.
There are some minor grammatical errors, so you might want to proofread. For example "Our cracked off from the very high temperature. " should be "Ours"
The very last picture says "you're almost there" which is odd since it is the end of the hub. You might want to move that wording up, and include something more finished at the end, like "Ready to eat!"
And yes, now that you have tortured me with these photos, I will be happy to accept bread as payment for this advice!
Hi Mellionaire Tips,
Wow, thank you for the tips! Yes I am HubPages staff in engineering. Someone mentioned this great forum in a meeting so I figured I'd try it. And wow, what great advice I've gotten. I'll spend some time updating my hub and repost the updated version for all to see soon.
And yes next time you're in SF I highly recommend tasting the bread baked by the pros at Tartine bakery.

This Hub has failed QAP due to spammy elements. I know that means the Amazon capsules, but honestly - if genuine product reviews like this can't pass QAP, things have become ridiculous: Recommended DVD's for Male Ballet Dancers. If I remove all the Amazon capsules, I feel like adding an...

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the types of services we offer Hubbers and how to help Hubbers improve.A few services that have been suggested- grammar and spell checking- suggesting edits- providing images/media upon request- formatting help (breaking hubs into multiple text capsules,...

How many Amazon capsules are allowed per how many words? I don't care personally, I never made much on Amazon. But on a few of the lenses that came over, they are almost all Amazon capsules, with maybe 200 words. I tried to tell one person in a nice way that it was an interesting topic, but that...

I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators see all sorts of patterns to spam and poorer quality Hubs.Here's some suggestions...

I created a hub that seems quite media rich and not uninteresting. Under the buttons I don't see any warnings, but still the hub is not featured (it's icon is ).Can you suggest what is wrong with this hub that prevents it from being featured?...
