    I am diving into the art of writing. I would love some feedback on ways to improve or explore new avenues of being creative.

    You're on the right track -- nothing bad about your hubs at all. I think that we can all, as writers, improve, however, and I would like to offer some suggestions (which is why you're here, right? wink ).

    First of all, add some pictures into the hubs. I'm working on theory here, but I think that people who are simply browsing the HP site are more likely to click on a hub that has a relevant image next to its title.

    Secondly, expand the hubs. Make them longer, use your capsules, etc. Of those that I read, three of them could easily be expanded to include more information. If you write about your condition, with longer, relevant content, you're more likely to get relevant ads and therefore clicks, as well as reaching the general population with information about MS, which I feel is often misunderstood. My husband was almost diagnosed a few years ago -- as it turns out, all of his symptoms were stress. Now when he stresses out we rush to the hospital thinking he's having a stroke. Go figure!

    News feeds on any of your hubs related to the disease or activities surrounding it would be quite relevant and might help you out as well.

    I like your writing style and can see a lot of potential there! Good luck!

      Hi Everyday Miracles,

      I noticed that my Google Adsense isn't matching up with my article content. Can you tell me why?  Is there something I need to do?

      THank you, if you think of anything else that works, I will use that too.

    Google is beginning to serve interest-based ads to your viewers. What this means is that Google is installing a tracking cookie on the computer of internet users and is tracking their traffic. I believe the theory is that this will generate more clicks based on the fact that the ads relate to things that the user is obviously interested in. I personally hate it and don't think it will work -- and have noticed that my earnings have dropped since Google announced this new program.

    My cookies are deleted every time my computer shuts down (which is frequently). Looking at your pages, most of your ads match your hubs except for the Living with the Maasai Tribe hub, and I imagine Google just doesn't know what to do with it. It's also the most recent hub -- give it some time and it might catch up with you.

    The hubs look great though, especially for a newbie! Good job!
