    Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my stuff - I'm new obviously and would like know what someone thinks that is outside my circle.  I appreciate all comments positive or negative.  This is so much fun though I will keep doing it even if I suck at it.  It feels so natural like I sit down and something just flows out me.

    Very well said. it would help to know what your goals are about this hub. Do you wabt to make money with it etc.
    People will have an easier time understanding how to advise you if they know where you want to be.

      I'm not really sure - for now it just feels like a creative outlet for a lot of stuff I want to express.  Of course it would be great to earn money at something I enjoy but I'm quite sure my stuff is not very commercial.  It sounds more like a "women's magazine" little blurb to me than something someone would want to put ads on.  I have only even read hubs/blogs? on this site and am pretty clueless so far.  I will hopefully learn as much by reading others as by writing my own.  If I did want to make money, what then - is one relegated to product reviews, etc?

        I really enjoyed your hubs. You write what you know and you write it in an amusing way that everyone can connect to. You've got quite a talent and I think you'll be an excellent Hubber. The only critique I have is that you should pay more attention to your grammar and punctuation, but I'm looking forward to reading more from you smile

        No product reviews are a good way to make money no doubt about that however how to hubs also generate good income. Nelle Hoxie is one of the best Hubbers here and has written a number of hubs geared toward helping new hubbers. I would recommend reading hers as well as LivewithRichard, Marisa Wright, Cagsil, Sunforged, and Maddie Rudd.

    You don't have to write product hubs if you want to make money. I reckon the majority of people write information hubs for adsense earnings on Hubpages.

    If you get a successful page with thousands of views a month, you can look into ways of making money from it with a whole range of affiliate products. Monetizing after a page has achieved success is a often a better strategy than going for a hard sell from the beginning.

    If you want a successful page it is better to start with keyword research or a hunch that you have spotted a soon-to-be-popular subject.

    Starting with something that interests just you can easily end up attracting very few visitors. Picking something that interests you and a lot of other people can be very successful as long as you get those keywords right.
