    Not been here long and I tried to read as much as I could about making hubs but I couldn't resist making a few.  Please let me know what you think.  I would be grateful for any advice, being a complete novice, criticism wont hurt me.

      I had a quick look at all three, and they seemed fine, if a little short. But then loads of people write short hubs; it all depends how much info the people who are searching for the information want.
      Thank for writing about the free photo-editing software smile I was using Windows but it stopped letting me edit photos recently so I needed a new program!
      Your hub about Wales had some beautiful photos. All you own work? You are a fine photographer!
      Welcome to Hubpages smile

        Thanks Izzy, just replied but it vanished.  Hope I don't double post now.  Yes, they are all my own photos.  I do photography for a living, so wont have any problems finding photos to use.  I did think these hubs are a bit short, will try and do some more in depth ones in the future.

    I like your Hubs Steve,

    The photos you took are awesome.

    I like using Gimp too. I also use sometimes for smaller editing jobs.

    The only thing I would add to suggestions would be to use more Amazon capsules. You can use more than one. Also, you could add some eBay capsules. eBay sell tons of music. Maybe another music lover will see something they want and buy it through your Hub. 

    You're doing great. Welcome to HubPages.

    The below hub is too short. You should also use more than one capsule for the page, so as to get more adsense ads on your hub. … ming-sites

    The below hub is also too short. … -my-photos

    The below hub is also too short. And, doesn't have a lot of content. … -mid-Wales

    The below hub does not have enough content, to go with the pictures. … hotography

    Otherwise, I think your topics are good, but needs more work. smile

    Welcome to HubPages.

      Thanks for the comments.  I haven't set up ebay yet, will look in to that.  Hopefully I will make more in depth hubs in the future, might take a week to do the next one and try to put more time in to it.

        You need to have your own domain to get an ebay account now, I'm afraid. I haven't been able to get one. Still there is always Amazon smile

          It is quite cheap to register a website and get a domain name.  I had one a few years ago but didn't renew it.  Bought a new one a few months ago and when I have finished building it, I will try ebay.

      I like your pics there Steve, we seem to have some photographic interests in common. Looking forward to seeing some more.

      Got rejected by ebay last week - applied with a domain that I have that has Amazon links on it - don't know if that hindered my chances. Oh well. Is there a guide anywhere on how to get accepted by ebay?
