I've finally stumbled on free time now that I'm on spring break, lol. I was afraid I might not ever come back to HubPages, what with all of my exams from last week! If you get a chance and are interested, please check out my latest hub. Constructive criticism, as always, is very welcome!
I want some of what you're smoking.
Seriously, I didn't get it. At all. But that's just me. It's really well-written, though.
The first paragraph really threw me off. You pretty much spent the whole paragraph telling people that, despite the fact that you're not a professional writer, they should not only read what you've written here, but also go back and read prior work. I mean, the way you set it up, why should I listen to you (hypothetically speaking...)?
Gotta agree with Irohner...
Very well written. But, I would change that intro. It doesn't add anything to the overall piece but extra text. I like the idea of a short intro to your piece but I would say something about how reading (since that's the basis of the entire piece) relates to building writing skills.
Also, I would break up that text. Add some subheadings, maybe a picture or two. And if you want readers to find your first part, link to it within your hub.
Lol, I understand what you guys are saying... What I was trying to do was make this hub a 2nd part, stemming off of my first hub, but I didn't want to keep the same title as the first hub and just call it "Part 2." So, I thought if I briefly mentioned my 1st hub in the intro, I could accomplish that... but then, I didn't want people to think they HAD to read my 1st hub in order to "get" my 2nd hub, if you know what I mean.
I guess I'm just all-around being a bit confusing =/
I decided to completely remove the mentioning of my 1st hub in this hub. I think they each should stand on their own. I broke up the article with subheadings, but I'm not sure I want pictures in this one. Call me weird, but I'm not a huge fan of pictures in a lot of articles. I know a lot of people appreciate them because they break up the monotony of text, but sometimes, I just like to write (and read) things without pictures.
I do think taking out my intro focused my article better. I appreciate your insight on the beginning .
Thank you for your feedback!

What part of writing your Hub do you find the most difficult? Or any type of article for that matter?The intro has-is-and will be the hardest part for me personally. It shouldn't be, but this is the part that I have always struggled with.I will make an outline before writing any hub. List all...

I don't know if I'm in the right place here but I'll give it a shot. I just got my first hub published and would like to know how I can make it better and what's the best way to monetize it for multiple earning streams?How can I best utilize eBay and Amazon? I really want to learn the right way....

Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar.Should HP take more of a harder...

I am just starting out on Hubpages and my first article was unpublished within a day, but looking at it I didn't understand why. I edited it, expanded it, and republished it, and I was wondering (if you have some spare time) if you could tell me what you think of it. I would appreciate any...

What do you do when you read a hub that is purely promotional?The hub itself may be well-written and enjoyable, but clearly it is all about promoting a company, product, or service. Do you flag it? Do you ignor it? Do you rate it?

I put this in the "answers" section and it actually should've been posted here.Many of us may be not performing to our fullest potential because we haven't taken a critical eye to each others' content. I would like to offer you some constructive criticism. If you have a hub or...
