I am very new to this 'hub' idea but yesterday I went ahead and created one anyway and then another one today. Even though the second is just a continuation of the first did I do the right thing in just creating another hub? The only thing I could think to do was name it the same with the number 2 after the heading. Is there a better way? Also, today I posted a modified version of a Mind Map I created using software I bought (NovaMind 4). I wanted to give the audience an example on my page if they didn't want to go searching for other mind maps. I believe since I have a license for the software that I can do this as long as the post or hub is not just about the software product (and it isn't). I did want to mention the names of a few of the products I tested but wasn't sure I could do that either. There are more restrictions here than on say a web page that you created but I like the idea of a hub I just don't have a lot of experience with it. So...I would like to do something like a weekly post on fibromyalgia and what is new and also my experience with dealing with the disease to help others possibly find relief. Also, I signed up for AdSense?? yesterday I believe but I'm not exactly sure how it works. Can anyone help me understand how I can get more traffic to my site for their benefit and mine?
Thanks for any help you can provide. Feel free to look at my hubs and tell me what you think I am doing right or wrong.
Hi Dave and welcome. You should really post this request in the Extreme Hub Makeover thread, but I'll answer it here anyway.
First - you can go back and edit your existing Hubs as much as you like, and I suggest you do that.
To make it easier for your readers, add more text capsules and split your text up over them - if you can think of a heading for each section that's even better. Here's a Hub that explains capsules:
If you edit what you've written so it's less rambling, you could probably get all the content of these two Hubs into one Hub. It's fine for a Hub to be up to 2,000 words long. Just make sure you use plenty of paragraphs, with white space between each, so it doesn't look too indigestible.
Oops missed a question.
HubPages isn't a blog. Hubs are more like informative magazine articles. Each one stands alone, although it may also be part of a series. A Hub is usually over 400 words and is often much longer. I'd say your idea would work well here, but you'll be more successful if you work to make your Hubs more structured and less stream-of-consciousness.
If you want to set something up where you make short, conversational weekly posts, then you'd be better of with a blog somewhere like blogger.com.
Hello Dave, and welcome. There is a special forum thread called Extreme Hub Makeover for asking questions about your hubs. I suggest you start with that.
As for all of your other questions, your paragraph is much too long and complex for anyone to absorb, I'm afraid. What you are asking for here is a lengthy expert opinion, it exceeds the format available here.
Welcome here I read your hubs, and suggested a few tips. Do read the Help section; it will answer some of your questions: http://hubpages.com/faq/
Best of luck with everything...!
I have read your Hubs. I think your topic will do well as I have seen several requests for info on this topic. However I think that your hubs are hard to read as the seem like one long ramble instead of a clear concise article. Your information is good but I would suggest breaking the articles up with more text capsules and sub topics.
You are correct in your analysis of my writing. Part of the problem is my condition but I think most of the problem is poor editing on my part. Lazy I guess. I will definitely try to improve the organization of my thoughts before I submit any more hubs. Thank you for your opinion.
There should be no issue with creating a product review, or product guide.

Hey Hubbers,This has not been done for a while, so I am doing all over again.If you're a newbie, meaning you've been here under 6 months, then post a HI or Hello and get yourself noticed. Don't post any links.If you're a veteran, then please stop in and post, and greet and meet some new members....

I just joined HP and published my first hub! Some of you probably know my mom - Holle Abee, or habee. She enjoys HP so much that I decided to give it a try. Wish me luck!
