    My first published Hub "No Root to My Tree" . I'm proud of it, but I'm wondering what do you think? I put alot of time into it and a lot of heart into it. I'd like to find out if you found it interesting, what improvements could have been done,etc.  Please check out my writing and let me know.

    Yes, you put a lot of heart into it, and I found it interesting, but virtually no one is going to read it as it is set up. You need to use a title that is more likely to be found by the search engines. A clever title is okay in a magazine but not on the internet.
    Also, the successful articles on here are set up like those you would find in a magazine. Your article is one paragraph, like a blog post.
    You may not care about being successful and earning money here, but if your article is not successful that means no one is reading it. If you want to get that picture out there, people need to access the article.

    You need to spend some time at the Learning Center here https://hubpageshelp.com/

    There you will learn that your article is too short; HubPages prefers pieces that are 1,000 to 1,500 words long or longer.

    You can't lift images from the Internet such as the one from Pinterest; you have to use Creative Commons images only.

    A solid block of type is a turn off for people who read on their mobile devices as most HP readers do.

    There are some grammar/punctuation issues - no space after a comma, question marks missing or added inappropriately. And you should never use a lower case i for the personal pronoun.

    There are two parts to writing here on HP.  The first you have accomplished by putting yourself, your heart, into your writing. 

    But there is another side of the picture, too, and it isn't nearly as fun - the mechanics and presentation.  When I write a hub I probably spend more time on those things than on what I have to say, and that does not mean I'm hurrying through what I present.  It means it takes a lot of effort to make my writing presentable in such a way that Google will like it, HP will like it and a reader will find it not only interesting but easy to read and digest.  In this matter your hub is sorely lacking and as it is will never be seen - you might as well write in a personal diary because no one else will ever find your work.

    I suggest you spend a few days reading over and digesting what the learning center here has to offer.  It is certainly the best such help I've ever seen on the web - HP went to a lot of effort to help beginning authors with the mechanics of writing on-line and it's well worth the time to study and understand every paragraph they have put there.  From choosing a title to using capsules to header capitalization it's all in there.
