I am new to writing blogs and to this site. I am finding the navigation fairly easy but still trying to figure out how best to manage what I am doing and do this correctly. I have noticed that each hub seems to be a stand alone article... do we create a new hub for each blog we write?? Anyone who has advice and guidance for me would be much appreciated. :-)
For starters this is not a blogging site. Hubs are supposed to be stand alone articles and they are not supposed to be personal.
You can write hubs from a personal point of view but should offer something to people who don't know you.
Yeah.. sorry. Still trying to get all the terminology right too. :-) I am going to be writing a series of hubs about gems, jewelry and metals from the scientific point of view for educational purposes. I am a GIA trained AJP and also more than half way through my GG. I am hoping to help the general public to understand gemology and the jewelry business so they they can go into buying from an informed place and not get taken advantage of. :-)
I have also seen some hubs with photos down the right side of the hub text... how do I do that??
Hi Deb - photos are reasonably easy to add either use your own or one that you have the right to use. Add the photos - there is a capsule for photos as well as a text capsule. You can then move the capsules about by the navigation arrows up/down left/right.
You will find the learning centre link at the bottom of the page has useful advice and also worth a look is the FAQ - helpfully called here the help button at the top of the page.
When you are positioning your photo capsules - try to look at the preview view as this will show you where the ads are going to go as this affects your layouts.
Also the layout of hubs is to be changed soon so you may want to look at the forum post about that too.
Sorry - long post hope it explains things OK.

Do you use your own pictures in hubs?Do you use photos of yourself, your family, your friends, or anything else from your personal life? Or do you search the internet for pictures that match the subject you are writing about?What is your reasoning behind your decision?

Can you make your Hubs into stand alone web pages?Will making your hubs into web pages cause your hub to get killed if it is on your own web host? Will google still index it since it would be duplicate content? We do own the copy right so what do you think. Should we cancel our hub first before we...

Is it better to have pictures with your hubs? I get frustrated trying to find appropriate photos.Its hard for me to find photos that are free for some of the hubs I write. I spend more time looking for the right pictures.

What do you do when people lash out at each other on your Hub? (in comments)Sometimes people have different opinions and argue in the comments section. They reply each other and it gets tense. Do you just watch the drama unfold, intervene, or delete the comments and wish you never published the Hub?

HubPro Basic has gotten more invasive and far less basic. Now they're changing text and replacing related photos with unrelated generic photos, thinking they are improving hubs.Computer generated writing exists. It's getting better and better, but why would that lead people to believe that removing...
