Your opinion on the layout of a hub?

    Cagsilposted 7 years ago

    Hello folks, friends and hubbers,

    I've recently published a new hub and I was looking for advice about the layout I used on the hub.

    I took some advice from multiple hubbers about using separate text capsules for such as breaking down sections of your writing text.

    I found it looks better myself, but I'm interested in knowing other people thoughts.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/What-Is-Happening-In-Your-Life

    Whatever you have to say about it is open.

    Thank you for your time.

    Each of us hide our own truth, follow your own path.

    Do you find that polls on such a hub are effective highlights of your key points?

    1. Cagsil profile image61
      Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I found no reason to add a poll to the hub. I was only passing along information, knowledge and individual conscious understanding(wisdom).

    The layout looks just fine. Here's some unsolicited advice. Use more tags (10 to 15 is a good number). Some can be broad or generic, and some should be more targeted.

    Also, I'm not a fan at all of words sprinkled throughout text that are either bold or in all caps. To me, the writer is saying, "Here, stupid. Since you won't pick this up, let me point it out to you." smile

      hi! the main reason some people put bold letters in their article is for the reader to immediately grasp the whole idea.(although capital letters is abig off....some readers just like to read in passing..they have very short attention span too....it is nice if you put summary in the heading of your article so that the people will know immediately what is in the article!

    I like your layout. It's nice. It's read able. It holds my attention. Except: I think you have a lot of words at the end without breaking it up with a sub-heading. I find I am more likely to read an article if it is broken up under subheadings... or even return to finish if I don't have time. (like now)
    as for content... well uh. yeah. ;-)

      You can use photoshop to match the shape of a picture to a paragraph. I sometimes even add some white above a picture to make it align exactly with the text. Or I reduce or add text to match the bottom of the picture. That's why it takes me so long to get a hub published. But perhaps I'm overdoing it on the design front. Your lay-out is fine, I got through the whole hub. Although I agree with the others about splitting up the text a bit more towards the end, especially when the text becomes wide to read.

    Hey Cagsil, it is no secret that to have any successful (really successful ) Hub you require 4 elements.  This I suppose is my opinion so it is maybe a secret.

    Anyways
    1-good, interesting content. 
    2-proper grammar and spelling not too long nor too short - individual decision.
    3-pleasurable or entertaining visuals appropriate to the Hub.
    4-A title that draws people in.

    The rest will either be a bonus or junk the Hub up.

    Title-Your Hub drew me in not only because it's posted here but it also appeals to the masses "life" offering an explanation or reasoning to the reader. Nice.

    Content/grammar-Your content was perfect length in my opinion, and I know they sometimes feel long, but what do we do here?  We write and we read.  To the best of our abilities and in the interim hopefully continue to improve and grow creatively.  Grammar and Spelling was correct, can't fault you there.

    Art Direction-visual presentation - it is beyond me how you were able to align your photo's and type without the "publish" formatting God's screwing it up on you.  I struggle with this the most.  You had captions under every visual and the visuals were attractive to the eye and relevant to the subject.  Also not too big or too many.

    I've said way too much except I am inspired to make my Hubs more visually attractive now and I am quite hurt my swimsuit video (being a big purpose in life) was not included so 99, lost a point for ignoring Kimmy, sorry.

    As she knows she has already said too much given the same comment was left in the Hub revealing her amount of downtime and purpose in life to be in the forums.

    Hope something helped,

    Kimberly

    For what it's worth, I think the hub starts off looking good but I agree with some others that the text could be broken up for the second half, either with more pics coming down on the right hand side or separate capsules with more headings to break the text up a little - good luck with it : )

          Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Nice, I top about 85-95 wpm. As for my hubs, I always type them out, break them down into sections, evaluate(checking for misplaced words or words missing letters) and then save it.

          Then, I re-read it, and re-read it, and re-read it, before I am sure to post it. I've not done that with all of my hubs, I only start doing it on my last several.

          But, just think about what could be accomplished if EVERYONE was able to remove the limitations that they put on themselves, without realizing it.

          The clarity of truth reveals Life to be easy, NOT hard, as lead to believe.

            mistywildposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            That's easier said than done I'm afraid. People are basically born with limitations and expectations placed on them.

              Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

              Born with limitations?

              As in what?(let's keep it real, the average person)

              Yes, I agree expectations are placed on them, but no more than they are to put on themselves. Remember, you set your own standard for life. You set your expectations of yourself.

              What others perceive or expect is irrelevant.

                mistywildposted 7 years ago in reply to this

                Born with limitations..... for exapmle, born into poverty, born to someone who doesn't want you...... those are limitations, whether or not people can get past them is up to them.

                1. Cagsil profile image61
                  Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

                  Being born into poverty isn't a limitation, but a poor life-style. It doesn't put anymore limitations on your ability to control your own future, which is built on learning.

                  School doesn't cost money. Higher education costs money.

                  Libraries are open and free to the public. Ambition to soak up knowledge is a must. It removes limitation of poverty life-style, because it continues to build self-confidence and self-esteem inside oneself.

                  Being born to someone who doesn't want you? This is unfortunate. How ever, it's not a limitation, but an annoying, disturbing, ignorant person, who really doesn't understand life themselves. Does it limit your abilities? Maybe, depending on your own self-worth and your outlook on your future.

                  And, Yes, I am going to be around for a while.

                    Wow, you answered me, here I was thinking you were the mystery man. Talk to you in a bit. And I do feel being born into poverty is a limitation as most people don't know how to break free of it.

  12. Cagsil profile image61
    Cagsilposted 7 years ago

    When I am in the 'mood' or feel inspired to write, it is only because, I realize that I have the entire concept down and really know it. Therefore, it comes more easily to express.

    If you are trying to force yourself, then your level of concentration is getting in your way of being creative. Creativity is a guided action driven by ambition and talent.

    You seem to have talent for writing.
    You seem to have ambition for going places with your writing.

    So, why do you limit your ability, by placing judgement on things you haven't yet done?

    You say, "I don't think I can do that yet?". That's your problem- you are thinking that you can't do it, therefore you put your own blockade of your own ability.

    Result, lack of self-confidence, lower amount of self-esteem to accomplish a task and an overall feeling of insecurity.

    Learn to remove your own limitations by changing your view.

    Positive attitude and faith in your own ability, is going to be the driving force of your life. Live it, Love and Enjoy!

          Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Okay, but when you begin to create a hub. It tells you NOT to make it personal. Therefore, it is to be generalized or similar to full characterizations of groups of individuals.

          If you mean as in personal, that they touch you on that level, but isn't really personal, then I await your ideas?

              Then I would suggest trying to write it in the THIRD person context or perspective.

              As though, you are someone else, who is writing about you and your life.

              Use the sentences, like 'she did this or Misty went here'.

              In the third person, will help your reader read it as a story, instead of your thoughts or opinions. A good mixture would wise.

    I would move the half length pics off to the right and definitely would split the text into separate capsules with headlines. And I like polls. Anything that makes a hub more interactive and easily digested is good, regardless of the intention of the subject.

    1. Cagsil profile image61
      Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I appreciate you input. How ever, your first part was tried already. It didn't appear to be as good as it is now, because the pictures on the right side distorted the words beneath them.

      So, therefore, I concluded to put them in. The text is already broken down into 4 capsules as it is. Any more, then there would be too much spacing and possibly make it too long.

      I was given the suggestion on adding a poll. But, found myself with a question that needed to be asked of the reader. There input or acceptance of the page isn't a matter of importance. Even, if comments are not left. That would be fine.

      The message on the hub is what is important. And, as I laid it out- the message is quite solid and easily conveyed.

      But, again, I want to thank you for your advice. It is always welcomed and appreciated.

      Then I stopped believing that they would exist.

    Misty my dear sweet lady,

    You are more than welcome to believe whatever you like. It isn't my place to interfere with your beliefs.

    I'm glad to see that you have an active imagination. You'll need it to be creative in your work.

    How ever, as Albert Einstein, believed- Man is just energy. Our body carry energy where it wants to go and when your body dies, then you will return to whence you came- Earth. Your energy will be absorbed by the earth.

    Mankind's utlimate evolution would be to transform at will, to pure energy and maintain conscious thought. If you didn't see that coming, I'm sorry.

        Misty, I answered your question about the hub. I told you that you would be better if you wrote the story in a 'third' view, just like a story is written. You sticking jabbing points of view can be incorporated into the story, as it is told.

        The "I" doesn't need to be part of the story to make it impactful.

          I'm not quite sure I can write that way. I'm not a third person typa girl. there's recovering addicts, gays and whatnot in here to tell their personal story soooooo...... mine just happens to suck.

                    I'm no longer to assist. You've made your decision. It is not my intention to sway you either way. That would stunt your ability for removing your own limitations.

                    I will not aid in your suffering.

                    Since, you've made the decision, that it is that important to be told in "I" format, then so be it. Move past discussing it.

                    You have stood your ground and made your position clear. Now, DO it.

                    Good luck with it.

    I don't know if someone said it before because I didn't read all 100+ posts. But its good to take the images from around your 1st section of text lower. I do have some hubs with images to the top and to the left of the main paragraph, but if an adsense unit can be in that area, and clicks will be improved profits (positioning bonus). I also heard it inspires more clicks but I am skeptical.
    Just a tip I learned a few months back!

    I made a revision to the 2spank page, please check it out, it's the please note:.... second I am writing a hub about my childhood, which sucked, and yes it was tramatic, so I was thinking of putting it under knowledge/education-psycology-self help..... what do you think?

      drej2522posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      actually, and this is just my opinion, I kinda liked your hub the way it was. The note almost looks like you are being safe, like a disclaimer. Not that that's wrong, but if it were me, I would rather state my opinion and let it all ride...but, it looks good. smile

                  yes...actually, it might be a really good info site. From the limited knowledge I have on the information out there, there doesn't seem like there is an easy way for...victims to get out of the situation without fear taking over. If you could write an article that can help some people get out of it, then you may make a difference...for at least somebody. Especially with today's easy access to the internet.

              Is a live account?

              If so, then what are you worried about? Secrets coming out?

              Then, I guess you would have to wrestle with your demons about your secrets and how valuable they are to remaining secrets?

              Again, here I can help. But, I believe in being honest. If your hub is honest and you do not have a problem publishing it, for the world to see, then I say do it.

              If it rocks the boat for someone else, then you will have to deal with, when the time comes. Cause and Effect is perfect harmony.
