    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Water drinking habit (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      I joined HubPages about 3 years ago but have not been an active member until today and cannot say I know what passes the Quality Assessment Process however one thing I know for sure would help you pass I believe is the content. The whole article needs to be rewritten. Look again at DrMark1961's feedback for useful tips especially the one on Poor Grammar and Nothing New. I guess that should help for a start.

      Watch out also for repetition. Some points could be brought out easily in just one sentence. You said it in 4 sentences. Read again your first paragraph. Do you think you could've said it with just one or 2 sentences?

      Your article lacks a bit in coherence. Seems a bit all over the place for me maybe because it is nothing new it feels like there isn’t anything you could do to make it flow. Look for new information that people would want to know about and make that your theme.

        Thank you for your valuable suggestion. Your feedback will inspire me to write new articles.

        Thank you for your valuable suggestions. Some important things need reminders to follow. I tried to do the same by writing the content that already have been written many times. The feedback will definitely help me in improving my writings.

          No, you shouldn't do that. It can be viewed as plagiarism. If you don't know what that means, go look it up. Your articles should be new and original. Sure you can research and garner information from various sources but your writing must add something new or have a unique perspective.

          Hubpages won't approve of something that has been 'written many times'. Why would they?

            I agree. But this is not plagiarism. The contents I have written are not copied or taken from the work of others. I accept that the article is not new, but what ever is written is by me and thought will be helpful to the society by reminding the importance of water drinking habit. I feel bad that it is not getting approved. In fact I am thankful to you for your valuable feedback.

              I have a feeling you could do well here, but as others have said, you need to find topics that have not been covered so thoroughly already.

              This might help (or it might not, lol):

    Spammy elements: Why are you trying to sell computer tablets in a hub about water use?
    Images: If they are legal, you should still put this information under the source. If they are not, you should download and use legal images.
    Poor grammar: There are more examples of this than I want to bother qouting. Have someone else read your article and point them all out for you before you try to publish here.
    Nothing new here: Even if you do manage to get this article featured, you are not going to get any traffic. Do you know how many articles are already out there on the web telling you to drink more water? If you cannot provide some special information you are just wasting your time.

      Let me start by saying I did not read the hub, I just checked it out after reading DrMark's comment. Unless you are promoting the tablet so that people can set up reminders to drink water, I see no way how the product is related. Don't ever expect this hub to be approved with that ad in there. Again I didn't check on other factors. Good luck.

    I appreciate your feedback. I know there are hundreds of posts about drinking habits of water. Still I see people who are not drinking enough water and facing health problems. I know this is not a new content for the post to be approved. But I tried to write in a very simple way so that even a layman can understand.
    Thank you for valuable feedback.

    I like your article. Thanks for reminding us about drinking water. It is a good habit. I drink a lot of water. I live in Miami Florida. The weather is hot. Our bodies ask every hour for water. You did an excellent hub.congratulations to you for a great idea about promoting water.

    Thank you very much for your appreciation, Ana Maria. I know I am writing on a topic on which a lot has already been written. I tried to write in a simple way to remind people about the benefits of drinking water. All the known good habits we sometimes don't follow. I thank you again. I only request you to promote my hub to as many people you know so that a good and healthy habit can be followed by all thereby we can control diseases. My hub is not yet published.

      If it's not published no-one can see it.

      Have you typed 'drinking water' into the Hubpages search: http://hubpages.com/search/?s=drinking+water ?

      Can you see how hubbers have witten about different aspects of drinking water? This is what you are competing with and this is just hubpages: http://hubpages.com/health/Amazing-Wate … h-Benefits

        Have you typed "water drinking habit" into Google? I do not want to spoil it for you, but obviously this person has already done so.
        Recent research has shown that women that sit around drinking bottles of water develop premature age lines around the mouth. Oh, but for a good glass of Welsh water.

          Study out recently https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2 … 111027.htm  says to only drink water when thirsty. Forcing yourself to drink more than you need can lead to death - apparently, once you've reached a safe limit the swallowing reflex starts to resist - it becomes harder to get the water down. If people push past their body's natural warning, then hyponatraemia may occur and then... ooops, dead.

          Personally, I find red wine a much nicer alternative big_smile

          PS Dr Mark, I didn't see anything in Google results to cause suspicion. Did you?
