    Well, I just joined Hubpages Friday night. So far I have written 4 articles, one is just for my friend (the video game one) the rest are written for strictly helping other people. Can you guys tell me if they are well written,or badly written?
    Thanks a lot. smile

    Thanks again, and if I'm violating something, just tell me, I do not mean to "start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links".

      Welcome to Hubpages! smile

      You're fine as you are considering you're in the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread, which is allowed to begin/start with posting links. smile

    Except that is what you are just doing... Edit off the direct links

    It's in the extreme makeover thread and direct links are acceptable in this spot on the forums unless that has changed and I missed it.

      Do I edit or not? Sorry, I though it said I can post direct links here.

        Sorry, I got ticked at the other response and forgot to leave you a comment.

        I agree with Cags. Think of it this way~~what is going to make the reader stay? Would you be interested in the hub enough to keep reading and find out more?

        I think overall you are doing a pretty good job, just more content and spice it up with some pics. Let us see you actually making the chicken. You know that kind of thing.

    I've reviewed all three hubs-

    (a) You need to add content to them all.
    (b) When you add more content, use more text capsules, so that you can take advantage of headers that are automatically bold type.
    (c) Articles up to 1500 words can use 9-15 keywords/tags and articles over 1500 words can use up to 40 keywords/tags.
    (d) When you add more content, as I've suggested, please make sure that your first text capsule has enough text written, so as to trigger the Google Adsense Ad Block, which would show up along side your first text capsule. You can use the Preview, to see how and when it triggers the ad block.

    I hope that helps. smile

    What kind of things should I add though? Another recipe to add to the chicken thing? Side dishes? I know I can add to the happiness thing, and I guess I could change the 5 things to make money.
    Is my overall writing ok though? Grammar, etc.

      You overall writing/grammar is fine, and welcome to Hubpages smile

      I would add some photos to all your hubs. They not only break the text up, but make the hub more attractive to the casual surfer.

      I'm trying to learn to write shorter hubs like yours. They are long enough to contain the information needed, yet short enough to have Cags telling you they are too short!

      From what I am seeing, shorter hubs can do as well as longer hubs, and I don't happen to think they are too short.

      The recipe hub is a good length in fact, but could really do with a photo of the finished product.

        Ok, I'll make some tuesday and post pictures. Thanks alot for the suggestions! I'll also take pictures to go along with all the steps, and I forgot to say that you can add seasoning.
        Thanks again for commenting guys, I think I'll keep with this for a while (writing hubs, etc)

    Okay, since IzzyM has more writing experience, forget what I said. hmm

      Hey Cags!! Don't be like that - my comment was tongue in cheek!

      1. moorebored profile image69
        mooreboredposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Ok, lets not start a cat fight here. You both seem to be excellent writers. I will make my things slightly longer and add pictures.

          added text in the first capsule, now ads are there.
          Thanks for the tips!
