    I haven't written in a while and I'm just starting again.  My first hub is on Vinyl tablecloths:

    I also created a similar one on table covers in general:

    These were created today and last night... I've been going back and editing/improving/adding more content to them.  I'm having a brain freeze at the moment so the content may seem a bit short.  Let me know what you think and if you think I'm missing anything important.

    Yes, far too short.  and don't start a Hub with a photo!  The prime money-making position for an ad is in the top right hand corner, so you want to either put your Amazon ad there, or write a long enough first paragraph that an Adsense ad will appear there.

    Thanks for the comments Marisa - I decided to remove the pictures and move the amazon ads lower so adsense shows up in the top right... I'm going to try think up of more content to add later.

      No, no, don't remove the picture altogether - float it right.  You need at least one picture to show up next to your Hub in Hub listings.

      If you had a decent amount of text, keeping the picture floated right would be no problem.  As it stands now, you've barely got a Hub there at all.

    They definitely need more text. Also, you might want to break up the copy with some other small boxes, like some links.

    I'm new at hubbing so take my reply with a grain of salt but I agree with the previous replies that the content of those two hubs is meager.  In addition I don't really think that tablecloths are a very interesting subject to read about. I mean I wouldn't come to hubpages to buy a tablecloth would I? I would go to ebay or find specialised sites on tablecloths on google search. My impression from what I've read so far on hubpages is that this site is for authors who have something interesting to share. Sorry, I may have the wrong end of the stick.
