I joined up yesterday in order to post a Hub that I had been working on for a few days and I would appreciate it if someone could give me some feedback. http://hubpages.com/hub/Feral-Animals-o … -1-Rabbits
I hope to write similar Hubs about other feral animals as well as Hubs based on my own personal experiences.
I'm pretty happy with the layout but I would love some constructive criticism about my writing as I'm far from an experienced author. I often have decent ideas, but struggle with getting my sentences to sound right.
My Google Adsense account is still pending but hopefully ads will appear soon.
Looks like a good start, welcome to HubPages!
Once you get Adsense going, tick "this Hub may be considered commercial" and set ads to High. Otherwise the ads won't appear.
i think the others caught the bulk of the spelling and grammatical errors
still you have to be careful here
if the monitors get the impression--mistaken or not--that you posted this to self-promote then they will bust you
be careful and let me suggest something i no longer do here but still do with my paid writing:
read your story aloud as if you are a reporter
that's a great way to catch most mistakes
know what i mean?
This is a special forum for getting feedback, and every Hubber has the right to post links to their hubs here for that purpose. The Original Poster asked for constructive feedback, which is perfectly fine. I recommend you read the description for the forum.
Great start! Spoony Galoony awesome name...I am a big fan of Beatrix Potter! But Looks like Peter Rabbit is up to no good!
Here are two of my suggestions:
1. Apart from grammar I would say watch the layout of your page by that I mean Headings and Subheadings. Use Title Case Text for headings and sub headings.
'The damage that rabbits do:' This would be far more appealing if it looked like a Title Damage Caused by Rabbits
Headings would also give the article a logical structure rather than read as one piece of text.
2. Always give your images a title and ALWAYS reference your source of the image.
Hope this helps.Tim
Ah yes, adding titles to the photos was something that I meant to ask about in the original post. How do I add captions under the image in small font? I tried to write it in the "title" section but that just put the caption above the image, in font bigger than the title!
Do it in the box that shows up after you load the image. If you go back to edit, you'll see that near the bottom.
Oooh nevermind, apparently I'm blind because I went back into edit mode and there is clearly a box to type in a caption :-P My bad!
Sorry Pcunix, I must have found it just before you wrote that because I didn't see your reply. But thanks anyway!
P.S. Your hubs are fantastic
I agree with Marisa that you have done an excellent job.
I noticed a few punctuation errors:
- "A decline in rabbit numbers, may..." (remove comma);
- " research organisations such as the CSIRO along with..." (add comma after CSIRO);
"outside and the..." (add comma after "outside);
"have shown however," (add comma before "however," or begin sentence with "However,");
"...such as; using" (change semi-colon to colon).
- "It does nothing about growing numbers of the animals..." (change to: "...the growing number of animals...")
- "because they were seen as inhumane because they caught..." ("because" repeated, find a different way);
- "The rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) was officially released in New South Wales has spread through the country..." (something is wrong here).
I think your hub is very well written. I sometimes have a lot of trouble getting through some of the hubs that are posted here, but this one was compelling to read and I wanted to know more as I went along. I thought to myself, "The flaw is not enough answers." It turned out that you not only posed the right questions, you gave the right answers.
Good job! I will want to read more of your hubs.
Welcome to HubPages!
Wow! I'm getting a big ego now hehehe. :-p could someone please tell me if adsense ads are being displayed on my hub? I turned it on in the edit settings, but I cant see them on my computer...
