      I am kind of new here but I liked it you have lots of potential, spacing was brought to my attention recently by a friend (about my site) maybe break up the paragraphs, but I love the depth of the info. And welcome to Hub pages

    Yeah, what he said. And, I noticed one typo. I think you were going for reports and got eports. That said, you can go into edit, and click the little ABC in each capsule box, also I recommend proof reading backwards. You can do each capsule separately, it is a time tested trick the professional editors use to catch errors.

    Overall a great hub.

      oh, thank you!

      I'll check that right now. I type really fast, I didnt know if anyone would actually read everything I wrote but I was hoping so.

      I can't seem to find who I am following. I was following a "do it yourself" person. now I cant find it?

        If you Fan them by clicking to follow their work, then it will show up on your  "My account" page, Hubbers you follow. The hub Hopper is on there too.

        Hey MDR, if you want to find out who you are following, then go to your statistics page.

        Up above your statistics you will seen a bunch of different links.

        Title: Favorites
            * Hubbers You Follow
            * Topics You Follow
            * Bookmarks

    Hello again, we just met. lol

    It seems like it is a good topic and your length is good too.

    However, there are a couple of things-

    (a) Use more text capsules for your writing. This will help optimize GOOGLE Adsense(make sure you're signed up for it and enter your affiliate code in the affiliate section of your statistics, you'll see an "affiliate section" link above your statistics. GOOGLE Adsense puts ads in between capsules one and two.

    (b) Breakdown your paragraphs. Notice when you look at the paragraph along side a picture? It is all bunched together and looks like clutter. Try to keep your reader's attention span and you'll lose them if your paragraphs are too long. The words wrap around pictures.

    (c) the best placement for Adsense ads is directly opposite your first text capsule. It is consider prime real estate. So, there shouldn't be a picture there. When you create another text capsule, you can put the picture next to it. There should be just enough text in your first text capsule so as to draw a full size ad for the space beside it. This means, that when Adsense places the ad on your hub- it is instantly next to your first capsule and in full display of however you have your settings for GOOGLE Adsense account. I'm sure you'll get to that.

    I didn't check it out for spelling errors. Because I didn't actually read it, as of yet. This is just from looking at it.

        last question? Before I fall into a fitful sleep dreaming of my hub?

        1) do my own views of my hub get shown up as clicks on my stats page? I sure hope not lol

        2) how come my rating is only 51, how do some hubbers get rated at 99?

        Thanks

            Here is an excellent example of a Hub by one of the top hubbers.

            http://hubpages.com/hub/Recession-Proof-Jobs

            Do not click on any of your ad links, you will lose adsense account for over clicking.

            Your rating is not a reflection of you but of your activity. I will explain all that when you are awake.. Lol get some rest.

          Yes, your views count on your statistics page. Nothing to worry about. It helps with your Hub's score and help provide a little traffic. Plus, whatever changes you make to the hubs and whatever comments you receive on the hub, will also help with SEO, because search engines look for fresh content.
          The Hub's rating is different than your Authorscore(which is the number next to your avatar.

          You can look up what both have to do with being on HubPages, by searching for them.

          Here is a Hub by Frogdropping to help you.
