    Hi Eaglekiwi,
    Greating you to hubpages. I see your hub already, and I think some of the tag don't really represent what you write. You should see what keyword in your hub that is more prominent, and then put it in your tags. I think your writing is ok, but a little bit scramble only because your final sentence as the closure of your hub is quite incomplete and not showing any conclusion on what you write.

    Hi, A couple of things -

    You seem a little unsure of what you are trying to say, and it is easy to go back and edit anything or add more to it when you have a more clear idea of that. I would do that and make it a little longer.

    Perhaps add some photos to break up the text a little.

    You can turn the advertisements off if you wish. I would hazard a guess you are going to get lots of "meet sexy singles" ads because of the subject matter if you leave them on smile

    Welcome to hubpages.

      Thanks for the welcome Mark .
      I dont know how to go back and edit ,that was my first problem and all I could figure was this new capsule all the time so I just kept on with the story ,yes I think that is where m "unsureness" is creeping in.......I do have photos in there (3) mission is to find where to turn those adverts off....or reduce them...thanks again

    I think Mark is right.  One thing that really helps me is to have multiple sections.  This helps me to organize my thoughts.  I'll often write it out in a word processor like word first and then break it into sections and move stuff around to make it flow better.  Once it's in sections you can focus in on just that section and make it at strong as possible. 

    I noticed you commented on the Ads in your post.  Those Ads are put there by hubpages, not sure if you can turn them off completely, but you can reduce their number.

    Are you writing to write or do you hope to make money.  If you are just writing to write, I think organizing your thoughts better would improve that side of it.  If you're looking to make money there are a few other things you could do to improve your page.

      Thankyou Epic TreeHouse
      Appreciate your advice , to begin with I was writing to write , then the more I read the links ,thought why not try writing for money,obviously I was feeling ambitious at the time ,just thought I dont want another party ( not so much a hubber) using my story?? do I reduce my adverts?.........

    On the top left hand side of the hub, there is a button marked "edit" - click that and you can edit and add photos - and also turn the "Ad" setting to off if you want no ads.

    I think you are not allowed any outgoing commercial links if you do that though.
