New Hubber - I'm Braced For Some Constructive Criticism

    Hi guys -
    I joined hub pages about a week ago and just finished up hub #10.  Before I get too far along, I wanted to see if I could get some constructive feedback from all the hub experts around here. 

    I will be writing mostly about weddings, parties, holidays and travel so here are 3 representative samples if you'd like to check them out:
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Black-White-Wedding-Ideas
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Baby-Boy-Shower-Themes
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Easy-Easter-Cupcakes

    One question I have is about the length of hubs - are these too short or too long?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Probably repeating the comments of others on here. I looked at the Black and White Wedding Hub. Here's my comments:

      -Too much introduction not enough picture. The amount of text in the introduction put me off straight away - you didn't grab my attention - a large picture of a wedding cake with a little less introduction would have worked for me.
      -A little cluttered - same as the introduction - there were chunks of text that made it hard to read...break it up a little.

      I'm being very overly critical here as it is a very very good Hub (and most of mine are not that good!)!!!

    I read the hub on Black and White Wedding Cakes and I would say the length is a little long but the detailed information is superb! What beautiful cakes , your words were clear and your tone in the hub generated excitement so that a reader would keep on reading, I give the hub an A+ great read! smile

      Thanks for giving it a read .... thought that one might be a little long.  Glad you liked it smile   I have tons of wedding theme and color scheme ideas so I'll probably use the black and white wedding ideas hub as a template.

    The hub on Black and White Wedding Ideas is fine as is. No changes need to be made that I can tell.

    Here is an idea to entertain:

    You could shorten the length if you put your detailed "large" picture off to one side and then the paragraphing that would run along side would need to be adjusted.

    Otherwise it would seem to be cluttered, at which time, you would have to break down your paragraphs into smaller sections and most likely have a couple of other adjustments too.

    That's only if you decide to put the pictures to the side. It is an option.

    Cosette and Cagsil - thank you for the positive feedback.  I just realized that you can upload photos and then have thumbnails for people to click through.  Will probably use that feature in the future to keep the hubs a bit shorter.  Thanks!
