I'm new at this, and don't really have much of any idea if my writing is any good or not. HP is, of course, more social, so not much criticism goes on between followers. Have a go at this, if you please, and tell me what you think..and thanks!!

From the amount of comments you received on the Hub alone should tell you it's good! I would change the layout of the photos at the top. But thats only because I love my ads to be on the right. But if you do not care about adsense or HP ads then I would leave it alone. Wonderful story..I look forward to the next segment.
Thanks Paula...I agree it's recevied alot...but....I've also never received any criticism whatsover. And, from talking with some experienced hubbers, not much in the way of criticism goes on when hubbers follow other hubbers. I just started writing, so I need some balanced, honest, criticism that's not.....social....yanno? Thanks for the read, and the comments :)TR
There are two issues there... is your HUB a good hub, and is your writing good writing? I'll give you comments on both.
1) is your hub a good hub? I think it needs some layout revisions. For a moment, I can't see why you have the history of the American bloodhound up front. It wasn't until I was reading the story proper that I realize that Flapjack is a bloodhound. That sort of background info should be in the sidebar, not the intro.
2) is your writing good? It's fine. I don't claim to be any sort of critic, other than I do read a lot of fiction and non-fiction (at least a book a week)

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

How do you deal with an unpleasant comment posted from outside hubpages?I am in mid flow so to speak with someone who is ignorant, insulting and downright annoying! He won't read the hub properly but insists his country is far superior and I am stupid, basically. Even though its research came from...

It would be interesting to be able to see the Hub Hop ratings on my hubs - this will help me understand what areas I need to work on and which areas I am doing well on....

So I published a Hub for kids and parents about the importance of History and trying to show how interesting the subject can be. Then some guy makes a comment on there about the Bible being the best source of historical knowledge from Genesis to Revelations. So, despite feeling it's not really a...

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are equally good quality articles. What am I doing wrong?!?!

It is especially important, particularly in support of new Hubbers, that when we have read one of their Hubs, we indicate our reaction by taking the few seconds needed to indicate our reaction to their Hub (funny, awesome, useful, interesting, etc.). Not only might it be a needed encouragement and...
