I just joined a few days ago and posted my first hub yesterday. I am already working on a second hub, but before posting it I thought I would reach out to see what I can learn from more experienced folks. So, here are my questions:
1. Is the topic of my first hub - "The Battery Charleston" - interesting?
2. Does the layout work or is there something I can do to improve the flow?
3. Do the photos enhance or detract?
4. Any comments or suggestions about how I can improve my style?
Here it is:

Thank you kindly...looking forward to reading your comments.
Hi Kaili, welcome to Hub Pages!
I just read your hub and did find it interesting to read. I have a couple suggestions and comments.
Some subheadings would be helpful, such as "Charleston in the 1700s and 1800s" or "A walk down Murray Blvd"
I was told to capitalize the title and subtitles, and use keywords in both. (If you aren't familiar you are with Search engine optimization and keywords you can find out more in the Learning Center, http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents)
I think I would move the map to the bottom of your hub. It's best to leave that space for ads. But your photos added to the hub.
It sounds from your profile that you'll have lots to write about in future hubs and I'm looking forward to reading them.
Welcome to HubPages you did a great job! I would maybe add travel and tourism to your tags also, which are popular topics

Since joining Hubpages some 8 weeks ago, I've received mostly support & encouragement, so I've followed the model and offered the same. I have not critiqued other hubbers' writing styles. I have occasionally pointed out inaccuracies, with mixed responses-- some were very open and dialogued with...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

Do you feel that people should respond to comments that are left for them on their hubs?i personally enjoy the feedbak left to me, as well as the opportunity to get to know my fellow "Hubbers" but I have noticed that there are many hub authors who do not respond at all or only selectively.
