    Hey all, I've just signed up and would appreciate any advice given. Also, when I start creating my first hub, will it pull up a tab or something where I can sign up for adsense and ebay and the other stuff? Probly a dumb question, but I'm still learning my way around the site. lol

      Welcome! When you make your first hub you will find the signup in your account under affiliate settings.Good Luck.

    Hello and welcome! One piece of advice I'd give is to use the search bar (above) to research topics you're wondering about - from affiliate settings to layout suggestions, or whatever. A lot of times, you can find hubs or past forum threads that will answer most of your questions.
    You may want to peruse darkside & girly_girl09's hubs for some really valuable HubPage tips and advice. Eric Graudins, Mark Knowles, and Misha know their way around pretty well, too. These are just a handful of many experienced hubbers who have been so kind to share their wisdom with us greener types. They just happened to have popped into my head first.
    Again, welcome. Hope you love it here as much as I do. I'm sure I'm not the only one who eagerly awaits your first hub!

    Do you "hubs" tab up top and search under hubpages for the information you want, darkside, badcompany99, mark knowles and many others helped me, do your research, it will pay off.  Good luck, great place to be.
