Hit me between the eyes, don't hold back! I'm an adult, I won't run to any safe place!!
Suggestions on how to improve this hub would be appreciated.
http://hubpages.com/travel/The-Copper-C … Train-Trip
I think the pictures add to the hub - your thoughts?
Is the video too corny from an old fart like me?
Checked spelling and structure with a bot, but that's not a guarantee.
Thank ahead of time for any suggestions!
Overall, you have a good amount of information here. I did find a few spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors that can be easily corrected. Other than that, it does feel a little dry.
Thanks for your input.
Should i put in more personal feelings/perceptions to make it less "dry"?
I take it "dry" being the article is more like a factoid?
The video and pictures add too the article?
I'll check punctuation and spelling once again.
You don't need to change the writing style, just read it out loud to yourself so you catch little errors such as missing words and sentence fragments. Proofread it to catch things like misused apostrophes and misspellings. For example, in the first sentence you left out "of the" after "light." The photos are great.
I appreciate your input.
I'll do what you suggest.
Great idea calc
About "speaking" the words.
On my Mac, I can use text edit to "speak" the article back to me.
I found a lot of stuff.
Thanks for the advice.
Your Hub has been selected...
Does that mean you've had an email saying it's been selected for a niche site but needs some improvement?
If so, then the email starts out with a generic section which lists issues you might want to double-check - it is generic, though, and may not apply to your Hub at all. Then the last bit mentions specific issues - and that tells you exactly what the problem is. Chances are if you fix those specific problems, that will be enough.
Check the Amazon capsule - you have a number as a heading? The description in the capsule should be telling the reader why you recommend that particular book as a guide to the region. Right now it's a little flippant and doesn't give a strong enough reason why you think it's a good book.
Side note - your photos. You should have no problem putting the Name of Source as "thebigmozey.com", provided you don't paste the URL in the Source URL field. That would allow people to copy and paste the link if they want to find out more about the photograph.
Had no idea that that number was there -> banging his head against a wall.
I'll try the big thebigmozey.com on half the pictures, see if they get through. After all, they are all my pics
And yes, I had the famous email, either spammy or need some additional work.
I don't remember seeing specific instructions on corrections but I'll double check.
Thanks for the feedback, Marisa!
Double checked the email, no specific instructions - just the generic stuff.
Went through it 3 times now, hope I caught it all.
From this point do I resubmit. or do they know I've edited the hub?
Thanks again for you feedback and help.

When a particular hub is unfeatured, can the moderators be more specific about what is the problem areas which have to be improved. Just writing ‘ Spammy elements ‘ doesn’t help. I keep on updating my hubs...
