A problem with endings.

    I have always had problems writing conclusions.  My latest effort, to me, just seems to end to abruptly. 

    Any suggestions?

    I just read your latest hub and it seems fine to me.  You covered your topic concisely (very interesting, btw, I had not heard of this $160 payout, way to break that down) and your ending (though short) summarized your point.  I try to follow the grammer school rules for conclusions...I give a short overview of whatever the main points of my Hub were, and/or ask a question or make a statement that will either effect people on some level or get them thinking.  As I said, quite elementary, but I've had no complaints thus far.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. You pretty much just summarize your points during the conclusion, which you did nicely on that hub.

    Hi..The Hub topic is interesting and I think the ending is strong. Note- the last sentence is missing a few words:

    Today it states:

    "There is a lesson in here. That lesson would do your research, and don’t assume that any simple and easy path to riches will actually work."

    I recommend:

    "There is a lesson in here. That lesson would be to do your research and not assume that any simple and easy path to riches will actually work."

    Good luck with your Hubs!

    great hub - and I don't see anything wrong with your conclusion.

    If you really want suggestions, I might change the sentence from :

    "There is a lesson in here. That lesson would do your research, and don’t assume that any simple and easy path to riches will actually work."

    to:

    "There is a lesson here; do your research, and don’t assume that any simple and easy path to riches will actually work."

    I would agree with LG and RW, it's probably more a matter of tweaking your last sentence a little to give a more definite conclusion/summary for your reader although I would add that it's the littlest bit 'abrupt' only because I didn't know where you were heading. So if anything perhaps tie in the end a little in the intro so that you build your case towards your last sentence and you take your reader with you to that final and obvious conclusion. It was a great hub by the way!
