Hello, I'm a brand-new Hubber, and I just published my first Hub. I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you!

Good work overall, Kayana. You seem to have a good grasp of proper grammar and you keep you sentences short (these are things I look for after spending a decade as a newspaper reporter/editor!). One big suggestion is adding an Amazon.com widget to your Hubs. Eventually you should consider joining their affiliate program and perhaps even one day earning some money from your Hubs. Good luck with everything.
You might reconsider suggesting Amazon to other people, due to the laws of some states in America. Amazon has been eliminating affiliates in states that are using loopholes in Federal law, to attack individual affiliates over sales taxes.
da_trif, thank you for your feedback! Since I'm new, I was a little hazy on the Amazon aspect. Can you put an Amazon capsule on your Hub without joining their affiliate program? Also, you said "widget," is that different than a capsule? Thanks!
First, sign up for Amazon's affiliate program through HP, if you don't already have an Amazon affiliate account, but only if you are in a state that hasn't passed tax legislation that will cause Amazon to disallow or terminate your affiliate account with them...there's plenty of info about this all over the Web. You can start by searching "amazon tax california".
Yes, widget is different from capsule. Although Amazon and other Internet businesses offer widgets to bloggers, you can't use them here on HP. If you want to sell products on Amazon, then you need an Amazon affiliate account and you need to use the HubPages Amazon capsule.
I have no idea what may happen if you try to use the HP Amazon capsule without having an Amazon affiliate account. I've never tried that.
I enjoyed your Hub immensely (left you a comment). It's clear that you are an accomplished writer.
The only suggestion I'd offer is that, since your Hub is a bit dense with text, perhaps you could add another appropriate photo or two, and maybe a video, to add interest and information.
Welcome to HP, and keep writing! I'm off to "follow" you now.
Welcome to HubPages!
I enjoyed reading your article, particularly since I'm a girl... However, to comment on the actual writing aspect and overall appeal, I would say you did a nice job. The length was appropriate, and I liked how you bolded your major reasons.
Well done and best of luck as a new hubber!

I tried to add an amazon capsule to a hub the other day. Hm. No results. In fact, a search on "book" turned up no results. Very interesting. The hub tool must be broken.Later, I went to check on my Amazon earnings account and found that it had been closed. Just "closed". The...

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

It would be nice to add links to merchandise from HubPages articles - same as the Amazon capsule.

I have had an affiliate account with Amazon since before I started here at Hubpages. Here is my problem: whether I use Hubpages Amazon (I am currently using that) or my own affiliate account, the Amazon does not work. I do not and have never gotten, any choices for my readers to look at. I click...
