I'm actually really excited that I'm starting the Apprenticeship program in June. But I'm a bit apprehensive, too. Any folks out there already in it want to give a glimpse of what's in store? Particularly, how many hours a month are good to devote to the program? Any tips for getting the most out of it.

Hi Craftybird - I take it you applied but did not get in this time around. My sympathy, and there are still many ways you can learn to succeed on HubPages. And I admire you for turning jealousy into a positive guide for your own success!
Agreed whole heartedly. That first payout and seeing my traffic go way up in month one was nice and very encouraging. Congrats on the halfway point!
Thanks for commenting, Shanna - I am very excited to begin. I have already drafted one article (I still need to add some media - photos/videos, etc. but the text is done). This is going to be a busy six months!
Thanks, Shanna! The info about time and payout is very encouraging: less time than I was concerned I might have to put in; & a sooner payout. Until now, I've focused on writing, learning my way around, & getting followers. Shifting to focus o
Congrats! You should be excited. Month 1 is great and the fruits come quickly for those who commit. You'll see.
I am glad to know the first month is great - I am also glad there is a big emphasis on title selection, because that is the area I have the most difficulty with (I am not an SEO expert, lol)!
Glad you received your titles. I'm still anxiously waiting for mine, so I can get started. But I'm looking forward to the program. I also appreciate the comments of Cre8tor & Shanna11 about the program.
Thanks, Cre8tor! Your thoughts are very encouraging. If I may ask, on average, about how many hours per week are you putting in on HubPages as you do the work of the Apprenticeship program?
And a note to other readers HOTD stands for Hub Of The Day.
The time to me is hard to say for each person but I think Shanna11 is pretty close. It can depend on how far you go in a hub, if you use own photos and if you participate in forums and reading. Just writing your hubs & lessons, I'm at about 5 hrs
From HubPages, 30 Hubbers/month, selected from those who apply, get 6 mo. training to make money on HubPages. To apply, go My Account, black-letter top menu, far right, click Apprenticeship. See Learning Center, Special Programs, Apprenticeship pgrm.
You're teaching me...I didn't know you could sign up but I believe my group was part 2 of a test run on this. Glad that it's available to all now.
Cre8tor - thanks for being our Guinea pig! The experimental session you are in worked so well that they opened up applications.
