    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Basic Essentials in Dayhike. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Rupert is right - at 167 words this is far too short to be considered a magazine article, but that's the goal of a hub.  To produce an full blown article that might be published in a magazine.

      You might consider pre-planning - proper shoes, clothing, emergency items, weather considerations, leaving notice of path intended, etc.  Even so, though, I'm not sure you can make a good hub out of the topic.  Shoot for a minimum of 800 words, or better yet 1500...without simply adding "fluff" that gives the reader nothing.

    I suggest you read the Learning Center advice of creating articles for HubPages. https://hubpageshelp.com/

    Your offering is way too short and does not contain much in the way of unique and interesting material.

      Thank you! I've just joined it 2 days ago and made my first writing. It was just a try. I need to read more about hubpages though.

    Rupert, you hit the nail on the head.  Most of these "I'd like feedback on my hub" are from folks who want a shortcut to spending time in the Learning Center.

      No they aren't. They are sent an email with a suggestion (including a special hub link) to post in the forum for advice. People can learn loads from other hubbers as well as the Learning Center.

      No-one is obliged to respond.

        Thank you @theraggededge Actually I'm so overwhelmed with lots pf links and pages that I need to review before getting familiar with stuff in hubpages. Needs to spend more time with my articles while putting extra effort to make it a good quality. And I appreciate your inputs.

          I have a Hub which covers ALL the Basic Rules of HubPages in one place.   You'll find it on the slider on my profile.    That Hub gives you enough information to get started.   Also read my Hub on How to Optimize your Hub.  Then just stop studying and start writing!   As you go along, you'll learn more.

      As Raggededge says, when you see a post saying "I'd like feedback on my Hub:  (Hub title), you know immediately that the Hubber has clicked on the link sent to them by HubPages, to create a forum post to get help with their Hub.  You can't blame them for following HP's instructions.  I confess, I've been known to get snarky with Hubbers who post question after question on how to use HubPages instead of doing their own study, but this is not that situation.

      Actually, I can understand why people come here to ask for help.  Have you tried looking at the Learning Centre lately?   There's a heap of great advice there, but that's the problem - it's so vast, it's overwhelming!   It's useful if you want the answer to a specific help question, but as a place to browse around and learn how to Hub - not so much, IMO.

      Yes. I have so much to learn in Hubpages. And I'm reading all of the replies coming from hubbers and absorb all of the juicy informations.
