Can I get some constructive criticism on why my hub is not featured and advice on how I can improve upon it to have it featured? The link to this hub is http://pattyjane.hubpages.com/hub/Peter … -Pentecost. Also any constructive criticism of my other hubs is welcome as well. I am always striving to be a better writer and feel that peer review is the best way to improve.
I cannot exactly tell but the theme is a bit search-unfriendly in the eyes of HP. Content is quite good and I saw most of your hubs are on Christianity related theme. May be people are not googling such keywords. But, the hub is quite informative.
If you click on them you will see your image attribution links are not working properly.
Other than that--it is pretty heavy blocks of reading but it seems okay to me.
You have a fine topic, and what you are trying to say is good. However, you have some serious grammatical errors. I saw numerous, numerous problems including (but not limited to) run-on sentences, misplaced or unused commas, capitalization in the wrong places, a poor understanding of how to properly use paragraphs, improper use of plural/singular verbs, improper spacing and much more. I don't have you hub in front of me now, but these mistakes start right in the first or second sentence. I strongly suspect this is the reason this hub was not featured.
Also, the hub is visually uninteresting. The media wasn't appealing. There is lots of fantastic Christian imagery out there. Since this hub is about the Old Testament calling forward to reveal Christ in the New Testament, you could use images of the cross for the New Testament and maybe an image of any iconical Old Testament story juxtaposed to indicate both the Old and New Testaments. On the web, readers really do like media. They want images, interaction with polls or quizzes, and video - if it fits the topic.
When I write my hubs, I try and edit them about 10 times before I publish. It's really hard to edit my own work as the tiny mistakes become hidden to my eyes. I can go back a few weeks after publishing a hub and find some really embarrassing mistakes - like using it's instead of its. I recommend you give this hub a huge re-edit. If the rules of grammar aren't your strong point, then find a family member or friend who is good in that area, and tag them as your editor. Your message is great. It just needs polishing.

Hi allSo I had a lot to say on this hub and it came in at just around 6,000 words. I'm not sure whether it might be worth splitting up into three parts or something to make it a little more accessible? It's just a topic I happen to be passionate about!!!Also, I know my titles are not really search...

Should you tell people when their hub is bad or has mistakes?I always ask at the bottom of my hubs for comments good or bad. And I have left some telling people that they've done things like used the word rod instead rode for instance. Or maybe that they could link different parts of the same story...

I posted a comment to a hub I felt was sub par and was a bit critical of it. The person talks about all of these tools, but doesn't link to a single one.So I said in a comment: "Where are all of these tools at? Why not link to them? I'm sorry but if I must seek them all out then this hub isn't...

Today I posted a comment on a hub that confused me. I'm curious if I'm in the wrong here. I was confused by a section of the hub and I said:Why does it say "We sent New York journalist Sam Merrill (whose previous "Playboy Interviews" have included those with Ed Asner, Roy...
