    Hi, welcome to HubPages!

    I suggest you browse around and visit some Hubs by established Hubbers like Darkside, Maddie Ruud, Misha, Marye Audet. You'll see they write great original content and that's what HubPages is really all about. 

    One of your Hubs is a product review, but in my personal opinion, it's a bit light on information and insights - have you actually tried out the product? 

    The other Hub appears to include some items cut and pasted from other sources (a reference to "I've mentioned in other posts....." and a section finishing with "Regards, Chris").  You're perfectly entitled to reproduce work you've written and published elsewhere, but you might like to check out what HubPages has to say about duplicate content - basically, it gets penalised so you'll do better if you write something new. 

    I know it's very tempting to jump into HubPages with both feet and write a whole lot of stuff before you understand what it's all about - I certainly did!  But really, it's much better to take your time to work it out first.

    Good luck!

    I would suggest writing about things you have a genuine knowledge and passion for. I don't see anything new on your hubs and there is nothing there I haven't read a dozen times before. And honestly, this "cry for help" seems more like a call for page views.

    What is so God-awful wrong with wanting people to view your hubs?  I just don't get it, that is what we are here for. You can choose to read someone's hub or not, I don't understand why this seems to be so politcally incorrect.  Someone, please, clue me in here.

      The forums are not the correct place to promote your hubs. There is nothing wrong with adding a link to a hub to make a point, but just asking a question and adding a link to a non relevant hub looks as though you are just looking for an excuse to get some page views. Hubpages them selves ( at least partly) base your hub and hubber score on traffic generated from outside the site. And if you and every other new hubber fill up the forums with promotional stuff the forums will stop being used for what they are meant for - discussions and helping each other improve.

    My mistake, I thought I read here in the hubpages, and i am not going to waste my time trying to find the post, that that was what people do?  Anyways, my bad, please forgive my ignorance.

    What Mark said.  I would have no problem with a new Hubber coming on the forums and asking very specific questions about a new Hub - e.g., "I've just written this new Hub and am having trouble with the layout, how do you get such-and-such to work?" etc.  But as Mark says, just starting a new thread and saying "look at my Hubs" simply sounds like self-promotion, because you really don't know what help the person wants. 

    When I come on the forums and click through the new posts, it quickly gets annoying to find thread after thread like that, which makes me less likely to leave feedback or be helpful.

    Seriously, if you want to improve your pages, orginal content is the way to go.  Make it interesting and controversial.
