I promise I looked at the FAQ before asking this but couldn't find what I was looking for. When I try crocheting in the round I can always tell were its joined up because theres extra space in between the stitches. How can I fix that?

is this for all stitches or only when doing double crochet in the round?
If it is for all stitches try for say sc in the round, do your chain and join, chain 1 which does not count as a stitch and crochet in each stitch around joining to the 1st sc and not the chain 1
If its for elongated stitches such as DC do a chain 2 instead of a chain 3 and then dc in each around joining to the 2nd chain of the beginning chain 2. The chain 3 is often to loose and leaves a hole. Also, make sure you are crocheting in the correct stitch to begin as the chain 2 counts as the first stitch, so make sure not to crochet into the stitch below the chain 2 and into the next stitch so when you come around your last dc is really in the last stitch not leaving a hole.
You can also crochet into the stitch below the dc, count your stitches around and on the last stitch do a DC decrease so you have the correct number of stitches but you have made the join area a little stitch dense to cover up holes.

The stitch were its most noticeable is the DC. I'll keep those things in mind the next time I try. Thanks!

There's a method of reducing the gap towards the end of this video which seriously rocks.
