    Hi Hubbers,

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

      I caught a few words spelled wrong right away. Just go back over the hub and look for mistakes and correct them.  I also didn't feel like I got a real answer for the question. Otherwise the hub looks good and should pass if you do these things.

    If I am already interested in this article I am not interested in reading your second papragraph "Let's review it from the beginning". It does not make a lot of sense where it is at.
    Also, using "South America" is about as useful as "Volunteering in North America". Volunteering in Bolivia, for instance, is really cheap since the transport is not that much and the food costs are low. Volunteering in Brazil is expensive, since the food and living expenses are relatively high. Volunteering in Argentina is out of reach for most people since it is also very expensive.
    I would get a lot more out of your article if you discussed the expenses involved, not just the flights.

    From a QAP standpoint, it is kind of short; as Barbara said it did not have enough info to really answer the question.
    Also, there are a lot of strange sentences, like "Almost ironically, volunteering abroad hurts your travel budget most of the time." When you finished, it might help to have another person read over it and make some comments about what is easy to understand. I usually finish an article and then go for a walk and come back later, or even the next day. It helps to read over your stuff later since you are able to see things you might have missed the first time.
    Google photos is not a legal source of photos for your articles. There are a lot of great sources out there for free photos (Flickr, Pixabay, etc) and you can read the forum posts about photos to find out which creative commons source you want to use.
    Also, lose the bold on the last paragraph. A few words in bold might help, but doing the whole paragraph does not does make it stand out.
    Lots of work to do yet but I think you have chosen a helpful and useful subject. Best of luck here on HP!

      I pretty much rewrote the entire thing and really used your advice, especially about Brazil and Argentina!

    You already have some good advice here and more could come in. The hub has potential but study how to use upper case in titles, how to use contractions in posts, and study the HP Learning Center to learn all you can about hubbing.
