Does anyone know how to sign up with the Hub pages apprenticeship program? I am new to hub pages, 2 weeks new. I used to be an excellent writer and recently found hub pages and decided to pick back up on a long forgotten talent. Unfortunately, it's been hopeless for me getting started. I've been to the learning center, and I think its the overload of all the info all at once and the technical aspect of it all. I just heard about the apprenticeship program, and I'm very hopeful that this may be my big break, but I cant even figure out how to sign up. Could someone please help me.
Yep, It looks that way. I've got my scratch paper out, my phone right next to me to look up things that I don't understand without leaving my page. I am 200% determined and I am finally making progress. I will figure this out, even if I'm up all night Every night; like I have been so far for the past week!!
If you go through the Learning Center step-by-step, you'll cover everything that the Apprenticeship Program did. We needed to write something like 5 hubs a month. Just learning a little more each month will teach you whatever you need to know.
Thanks for all the feedback. I finally figured it out and completed my first hub, so I guess I'll see how it goes. I used to be an excellent writer when I was in school and haven't wrote a lick since, so I'm very happy to have found this site. I completely had no idea that anything like it even existed.
The advice that I needed the most when I started was to check everything that I wrote after I wrote it. Being so excited to have written something, I shared it with one of my friends and after she sent back 5 corrections, I was red faced and had learned my lesson. I've read every article to myself now before publishing and still find mistakes years later.
I haven't read your hub yet, so I'm not saying I found mistakes there. I'll go do that right now. I'll just read it and won't point out any errors.
I just read it and it was taken off right afterwards. The reason I think they unpublished it is because of the Amazon ads that showed right away. That might have been considered too promotional. Take one off and then publish it again. That should get it approved.
Haven't removed amazon ads yet but on my way, thanks!! By all means, I'd be happy for you to read and inform me on any mistakes. I am MORE THAN RUSTY. Its been so long since I've written any thing, grammar so out of wak, it may not even appear as a mistake to me if you catch my drift.
The HubPages apprenticeship program was arguably the best thing this site has ever done.
Which is probably why it got the boot.
(In reality, it unfortunately it required a lot of man hours, which I assume is why it went away)
But if they really want to start bringing in/developing good content creators again - that is the path they need to take.

Just saw this in the new layout! So exciting! Wish I could sign up but can't right now - not enough time to do a good job. But does anyone know how to find out how long the waiting list is already?
