New hubber here, and I can use all the help I can get. Please critique any of my hubs. I will be grateful for any help... be gentle.. lol
The Bumpdrafter one is too short. I think you need to open it up with a conversation about NASCAR that is meaningful to readers before you direct them off to your blog.
You have to remember that each hub you write IS an article. It's not just an ad for something (even though many might want it to just be that). SO, since people come to your hubs thinking they are going to get actual information of use or entertainment, you have to give them something interesting. You have to take time to provide something genuine, as if you actually care about them and their time. Show them you are interested in the topic, why it matters, give them not just a taste of what you do on your blog, but a genuine example of your fully fleshed wit and depth of knowledge. THEN you can go with a sort of "if you like THIS, check out my blog" and you will have earned a click.
Your safegaurding the house for toddlers one is also too short, but you can expand on it easily enough. It's got some good info in it already, so that's up to you.
The Florida vacation spots looks good, seems like you are getting the hang of it more by the time you got to that one.
I checked the latest. Didn't read it as I don't have time in hand now.
A quick points:
Don't post a photo just beside the first text capsule. The right top corner of a hub is the best place for ads to be placed for getting clicked. You didn't even leave an empty space for google to place those ads. If you take a look at any reputed hubber's hub you will see they have a 360x250 size ads block in the top right of of their hubs.
how do you add just the empty space for a google ad? i must not be seeing . do you just space the text for it in the text capsule or is there an actual capsule to add space for it?
That comes automatically provided the first text capsule has a sufficient amount of text and no images or other objects are placed to the right of it.

I have figured out how to put a photo at the top of my text and at the bottom, but I can't figure out how to put one in the middle, over to one side, along a paragraph. I have watched videos and read the instructions. Something is not clicking what am I doing wrong?

As Cagsil noticed, we are in the process of testing out some changes to our text capsule editor. It's been turned on for a small number of specially selected trial users for a couple of days already, and now it's available to all. In order to switch, just change the settings on your...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...

I've just started going through the first lenses that got ported over as Hubs and here're a few things you can expect when you start reviewing your imported content.First of all, my lenses are still all showing on my Squidoo dashboard, so anything I might need if something is really wacky is still...
