    Judging by your first hub, you seem to do just fine. Informative properly formatted for Internet readers text without excessive linking - trust me, many people can't make anything close after several months here. smile

    You can put more text and links to your profile if you need to, or do several other things - it all depends on your overall goals on the Internet...

    In general people use HP:

    - to hang out with intelligent people
    - to get publicity
    - to make some money
    - to get backlinks
    - to get traffic

    or any combination of those big_smile
