    Actually It's after 12 where I am, so I wrote it yesterday. I'm very excited so I'm up late and just completed my 2nd Hub. Please take a look at them and let me know what I should do to improve. I think the first one needs more than one photo. The topic of the first Hub is a downer (domestic violence), but it needed to be written. My second Hub is much lighter and can benefit all people. I'm happy to be here and hope to be a boon to the site. It seems like a fabulous community of writers!

      I read your first hub, It's amazing, and so powerful and inspirational! I love the way you wrote with such hard hitting honesty. Really well done! I know you asked for constructive criticism, but honestly I wouldn't change a thing, I think you have a gear writing style and your story and message is a very important one that will hopefully give strength to others in similar situations! Well done! LF x

    On the ACV hub:

    Make sure each text capsule has a title, using some form of your keywords.  Not only are the keywords bolded that way, google looks at the titles.

    The large centered pics are a distraction.  Better to keep them smaller, and probably flushed right.

    I can't imagine what it would be, but perhaps a video of some sort.  Maybe a news capsule about ACV?  Something to keep the reader occupied on the hub for more time.

    I realize it's premature right now, but as you get more hubs, you will want to link them together, probably with both text and RSS links.  Just make sure that any text links, in particular, are relevant to each other.

    On the humor side, the first thing I saw was the now familiar huge, moving adsense ad for a tiny belly!  At least it was appropriate.
