    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub I, Refugee: Crestfallen. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      It's a blog post, not an article. HP is steering away from personal accounts and towards more informative writing.

      The title of any online piece of writing, at least one that wants to attract traffic, should be 'searchable'. In other words, people should be searching for those keywords. Your title is not one that would be searched and not in the context of LDS - refugees have a more current meaning, right now.

      Images must be legal to use. I would certainly question that Disney one.

      My thoughts are that it might get approved if you sort the images out, however, it won't garner much traffic at HP.

      Hope that helps.

    As RaggedEdge says, it's not suitable material for a Hub.

    Hubs need to be the sort of articles you'd read in a magazine.  As you know, magazines do often publish personal stories - but they're not written just as a personal memoir, they're written to share an experience that others can learn and profit from.   That's not the case with your story.

      Thanks for your feedback. I did put more personal elements in this article. I suppose I should not run series of articles? The purpose of the article is to who that we can outcast ourselves from society by our own thoughts and actions. I used my personal story to show this by describing all the negative feelings and concerns I experience while ironically on a family trip to a Church Conference meant to inspire and uplift. Should I remove it from hubpages?

        If you can't get it approved and featured on HP, it might do better on a blog where you can expand on it, write more about it and you can have it be as personal as you like. I think that's what I would do.

          Thanks. I hate to have to do it, but I will.
