      Welcome to HubPages.  This site is looking for high-quality, grammatically correct, articles filled with information that people are searching for now and will continue to do in the future.

      I would recommend that first you focus on your grammar.  I haven't looked at your profile or your hub, but looking at this forum post, there are two big mistakes. First, there are no capital letters in the title. The first letter of each word should be capitalized in the title.  Secondly, in the post, you did not capitalize the 'i". When you are referring to yourself, you should always capitalize the I.

      The Learning Center articles may be of some help to you.

        Thanks for answering my question.
        I will pay more attention to that.
        Could you take a look at my profile and give me more notes?

        Thanks for the information here. I am so new, and I need all I can learn to get started. If you can kindly assist me in any way, in terms of rules and tips, that will be highly appreciated. Thanks again.

      You obviously are a second language speaker, and it shows in your sentence structure and grammar.  To be featured, an article must be correctly written, full of original content, have good, clear, appropriate photos that are properly accredited and pass other tests.

      I strongly suggest you take some English grammar classes so that you can improve your writing skills if you wish to do well here.

        I need that for sure. From my experience, it requires more than taking a grammar class. A short cut would be to find a native-speaker who can edit my articles before I post them. What do you think about this solution? Where can I find a native-speaker who can offer his help for free?

          For online editing take a look at grammarly, Hemingway Editor, and ProWritingAid. Grammarly is free to my understanding. Hemingway Editor you can use online and they have a desktop application too at a nominal cost. ProWritingAid you can copy/paste to it online. I am not sure if trial basis on or not. They have a application download at a small cost with different software options. For instance I downloaded it as an application in Microsoft Word. I wrote an article about it seen at my profile. Hope that helps with options for learning purposes.

          Notation: I plan to rewrite that Hub. I have learned it should follow closer to a Stellar Hub described at HubPages Learning Center. Plus, it will be a new opportunity to use that editing tool to learn from.

              I hope those discoveries offer more explorations on your adventure with writing. I use ProWritingAid today and have learned a lot and continue learning each time. In other words I am being trained as a writer using it.

                I agree with you. Too many sticky sentences made me feel that I am a sticky person. 
                Did you upgrade to premium?

          TIMETRAVELER2posted 7 months ago in reply to this

          You won't.  Editing is tedious, difficult work and nobody will do it for free.  There are no shortcuts when it comes to learning or improving your skills with a second language.

          The people here are writers, not teachers.  We are happy to give you little tips, etc., but editing work written by someone whose skills need major upgrading is far beyond anything anybody here might be willing to do.

          You have stated several times that you know your skills need work, but that you are frustrated because you don't want that fact to stand in the way of you being able to express yourself.

          That is a very unrealistic view for you to take because you've got things backwards.  FIRST you learn what you need to know and THEN you use that knowledge to communicate your thoughts and feelings.

          If you are unwilling or unable to do this, you might better find a site that will accept work in your own language and write there.

    What type of hub do you try to published? I write hubs based on my interests. Try writing something more informative articles or just be yourself, write things that interest you the most. (Just a piece of advice.)

      I guess you are not a native-speaker. Where are you from? I knew it from (zico). It is common in between Arab nations.

    Here is a little correction for you.



    You have offered me great tools, thanks a lot.

    I recommend using  the free version of Grammarly. You can install it as an extension on Chrome.

    Before you know it, you'll get the hang of it.

      Not enough actually. I find mistakes require upgrading to premium. They are a lot. I managed to find and correct them by ProWritingAid.

    Guys, how many articles had you posted before featuring your hub ?
    I know it is not the number of articles. It is the quality of each one.
    What happened in your case?

      I don't think there is any requirement in the terms of how many articles you need to post before you get a Featured Article.  It most definitely depends on the quality.

      In my case my first article got featured.  So far I have written 18 articles and all of them are featured.
