    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub How my travel blog turned  into a revenue generator (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Your English,sentence construction and writing voice, has many deviations from the standard that is required on Hubpages. You might find it useful to try the free Grammarly download to help edit your text.

      Hi...overall interesting but there is some room for improvement for which you can try asking an editor/proofreader to go through and make changes. Thanks, regards...

      Hi there,

      Okay, as a professional writer, you should know some of this stuff smile

      Headings and sub-headings should be written in title case.

      The US is always fully capitalised. It's never written as 'Us'.

      Lose "What this article is about" Your introduction should precisely tell the reader what the article is about. As it stands, it is not about any of those three bullet points. There is nothing there about monetization. You say, later in the article, "Is my blog monetization strategy working fine?", but you haven't mentioned it. Monetization is not what you seem to think it is. It is a strategy of obtaining direct income from your blog. It includes advertising, selling items, and sponsored posts. In other words it is money that only comes from your blog, not what you do offline.

      You haven't explained what the tour guide thing was about. Were you conducting walking tours? Expand on that part as it is interesting.

      "On a continuous basis" - should be continual.

      "Search engines' shouldn't be capitalised.

      As you are writing about writing, you have to make sure your grammar is as good as you can get it. For example, "Some of travel story photos" is incorrect.

      And, talking of images, you've only included one travel photo under that heading. The other is of yourself. I would take that one out and add some relevant, high quality photos to illustrate the article. The first one, at the top, is poor quality. If you haven't any of your own, you can use Pixabay, Pexels, etc.

      This hub has the potential to be really informative. I think it would do much better if you talked about travel blogging as a general topic than SEO. Leave that to the experts and write about your passion of travel writing. People love to hear where you write, what is going on around you as you write, how you felt when you got your first request to write a guest post. All that kind of thing.

      Without mentioning actual figures, you could tell your readers if your blog provides a good living, or if it is a hobby. Readers want to know how well you are doing.

      Hope that helps

    we should all 'help' by using a sentence that doesnt end and by not using punctuation and by using no capital letters at the beginning of the sentence and by the way capitalised is spelled with a z not an s oh wait let me consult the dictionary perhaps there is a alternate spelling and not to be a total beeach but if you are going to tell someone some advise make sure that your advice is accurate with the spelling of capitalize with a s you have changed the context of your advice capital is all about stocks and assets capitalization with a z is the science of using large and small letters and dont use capital letters in your sentence or people think you are YELLING
