    Hello everyone. I am new to hubpages and quite excited about all the possibilities of good content to write about. I would love some feed back on the format, layout and any possible constructive criticism you could help me with.  These are my first three hubs. Thanks and enjoy.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/How-long-should … t-of-paint

    For the last one I changed the title to common paint questions but cant seem to change the URL. any help?

      Concerning chicken looks good. Need to activate your amazon
      capsule. 'No Results Found', edit Amazon Capsule Keyword Search. Select a product area. Put in one keyword then Click preview Amazon Results. If nothing happens it is not using your keyword. Try other words until you get books you like books listed below. Two words seems best.
      Paint brush page looks great. I used to use 3 1/2 inch slanted
      polyester, nylon for everything oil or water.
      Common paint questions: Split text I can't do that. Excellent, clear concise nice pictures. Have a quibble. Exterior always 100% acrillic over oil. Never heard of latex being any good outside.
      I may do an article on painting myself so we will be in competition.
      My opinion should use shorter url. Any way good luck, hope this
      is help.

    It looks like you are off to a pretty good start.  Those hubs don't look bad.

    You can always change your title, but the URL is set in stone.  If you're topic is completely different from your URL you can create a new hub and (manually) copy over the content.

    Welcome.  Your paint hub was helpful:

    The only thing I would recommend is to work on the title.  It is somewhat ambiguous (paint for your house, artists' paint, etc.).

    Oil is better on metal perhaps , as it makes more of a barrier and seals out moisture better. most poeples exterior to their houses are not made of metal. This is why the suggestion of latex. It is pourous as well and lets the substrate breath. Better do more research. I am a bit of a paint guru. Guess I need more work on my hubs though.LOL. I thanks for the advice though.

      I should have been more clear, although you will still disagree,
      but that's the fun. Exterior - oil base primer with 2 coats 100% acrylic water base over that. I have walls still going for 15 years facing the sun all day. Maybe they make better latex in canada than california. Thanks for the reply.

    I actually agree witht the oil primer and acrylic topcoat. I have only seen that do well in the past aswell. Touche.
