I'd like some constructive criticism of my first hub.
Thank you in advance!
It is an excellent hub, although a bit short. You will want to aim for 500 words or more.
This reads like a solely personal experience, you speak to the reader directly, which works really well. But in terms of traffic, I think the value of your hub would be enhanced with some background information and references on the subject. In that case, you may want to use headlines and perhaps additional text capsules.
I noticed that you have not provided credits underneath the image. Be sure to comply with copyright laws, where even images licensed for free commercial use typically require accreditation.
Anya your first hub is very good. I like that you are using a poll.
Your layout and photograph makes it look as though you've been hubbing for a very long time. I enjoyed reading it but I thought it was just a little short.
It took me a long time to learn this, but if you leave the top box for adsense (assuming you've signed up for it) then you can maximise the possibility for earning. This means you would move your photograph down the page and have sufficient text for the advertisements to display. You can check this via the preview button.
I hope that you enjoy Hubpages and welcome!
Thank you so much for the feedback! I will definitely add more text/stories and hopefully it helps! I will also look into the ad placement as well....thank you all so much for your time...
Anya- as others have said, too short-aim for around 1000-1200 words. By having a big picture at the top you are missing out on the large adsense banner at the top right position. If you write say 400 words you will get the advert positioned there. Then add your photo in the next capsule with more content and place your poll further down. Good luck to you.
Welcome to Hubpages!
Good topic to write a hub. I really liked it, I hope you keep up the good work. Wish you luck.

Hello, everyone.I just went to edit a hub and noticed that there was an ad that covers the text in my hub. I have attached a screenshot of the hub.This is not good. People who cannot read the text will probably leave the page right away. I just thought I would report it and see if...
