Just wanted to say hello!

    Hi - I'm a newby hubber, and would just like to say hi to everyone!  I'm a mum, teacher, special needs coordinator and writer, and have uploaded a few articles taken from the notes I make for Christmas. 

    I would value any feedback, as I'm not sure whether they're suitable.  Hopefully they're okay, but this is my first time writing hubs - usually I write fiction.

    Happy (and belated!) Thanksgiving to all those across the pond, and no snow here in our part of the UK yet!

      Welcome to HubPages! I wish you joy and success.

      There is a forum specifically for getting feedback to your hubs, Extreme Hub Makeover, where you are even allowed to post the relevant links:

      Welcome. I would suggest you write a short profile so people can get to know you.

      Also, it would help if you added a photo or two to your hubs. It breaks up the text and looks more appealing.

        Many thanks - I will add photos.  Having a bit of a problem accessing mine at the mo, but I'll upload some as soon as possible. 

        Once again, many thanks!

      Aloha, and welcome to the insanity! 

      There's plenty of help to be found on here.. ..especially in the "help" section. big_smile  Really though, best bet is to search through the forums and beginner hub topics.  There's a lot of wise owls out there. smile
