Hey Hubpages, I just created my profile and have been posting a lot today. I would appreciate any feedback on my blogs to where I can improve, or if you just like it! Thanks in advance and I would be willing to extend the same gestures for you.
Here are links to a couple of my posts

It looks like none of your hubs are featured yet. I took a quick look at your "Cross Country Travels" hub. It has good information, but i's full of typos. A few examples are:
that how things were
Careful proofreading and the use of a spellchecker will help you get your hubs featured.
I'd just say focus on writing quality, evergreen content. Identify some keywords and try to use them, but don't get too hung up on it. Have fun and write things that interest you, and the rest will take care of itself.
5 hubs in 4 hours, not bad.
Posting links to your own hubs is a no-no.
However, you being a newbie, I don't expect anybody to be too perturbed about that.
Welcome to HP!
First of all, Hubs are not blogs. They are the kind of articles you would read in a magazine. That means you can't get away with typos and spelling mistakes - they all need to be fixed. Don't just rely on a spell-checker either: I see one place where you've used "then" instead of "than", and another where you've used "view" instead of "few" for instance - a spell-checker won't pick that up because both are real words.
Second, HubPages are VERY strict about how you use Amazon capsules. You can advertise ONLY products that are very closely related to the subject of the Hub. If you advertise unrelated products, your Hub won't be approved.
In your "cross country travels" Hub, you've chosen products that are useful equipment for travellers BUT your Hub is not about equipping yourself for travelling. So that's not closely related enough. I can't think of any products you could feature on that Hub, and you'll find that happens quite a lot. Some subjects just don't have related Amazon products.
Another tip for Amazon: if you are going to show an Amazon product, don't just chuck the capsule in. Say something about why you've chosen this product and why you recommend it.
I appreciate everyone's feedback, after some changes I'm pleased to say 4/5 of my original hubs became featured. Thanks for the help!

Are product reviews allowed or are they too commercial?I would like to write a product-specific review and was wondering whether such commercial topics were allowed under the publishing rules.

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs...

Do any of you out there have nonfeatured hubs although you've done the prerequsite research and/orhave the expertise regarding the hubs in question?

From your total hubs, What percentage are featured?A good feedback for you is to take the percentage of featured hubs from your total published hubs.

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one...
