I need someone to professionally edit my article: Autism Battle.

    I need someone to proofread my autism article so that I have no grammar issues at all the next time I decide to publish something in one of the niche sites. Here's the link. https://hubpages.com/health/autismbattle

    I like to use this free site to help with spelling and grammar. http://www.grammarcheck.net/editor/ (this is not an affiliate link) Just cut and paste your entire article into there and it will help tremendously. I also like to proof read my entire article while it is in the editor and make changes as I go.

    After you go through and try the editor and make the corrections feel free to contact me for more help with sentence structure and such. 

    I am very new on the Hub but I have been writing for years and I am willing to help you in any way needed. My son also has Autism and he loves to write as well but he is much younger.

    My advice would be, don't spend any more time and effort on it.  Be happy with it as it is.  I think it is very unlikely this Hub will be moved even if you make it perfect.

    When the editors choose Hubs for the niche sites, they are looking for well-written Hubs that are useful and interesting to readers.  Most of your Hub is not about autism, it is about your life story, growing up with your sister and your mother.   

    It is quite common for Hubbers to write a Hub about their life story.  None of them get moved to the niche sites, and some of them even get deleted by HubPages because they are too personal.   A person's life story is interesting to the person and their family, but not at all interesting to strangers who don't know them. 

    Right now, you are getting views to that Hub because you are a new member of HubPages. Other Hubbers are meeting you and want to know you better, so they go and read your Hub.  So having the Hub on HubPages.com is useful.

    Hey Marisa, if much talked about subject like autism doesn't qualify for niche sites, could you please also tell us what other subjects don't qualify. Is there any manual or instruction other than what hubpages learning center has (restricted subjects)

      You misunderstood what she said.  Marisa didn't say a hub about Autism won't qualify, she said that a hub that is highly personal does not qualify.  She also said that a poorly written hub or one that people are not interested to read won't do well, either.

    Marisa didn't say that articles on autism are not permitted. They are. I've written some myself that are now on a niche site. She said that articles that are wholly personal (a person's life story) are typically not accepted. They're looking for magazine style articles that will be useful to a wide audience. Hope that helps.

    Ivan honey, I have been watching your posts and such for the last couple of days and I do not want you to take this the wrong way but I think you are in the wrong place! You like to write and that is amazing and you should not stop, do not ever stop something you love doing! However, I think that this site it not going to be beneficial to you because you and your Hubs are better suited for a blog! Start a blog on a free blog site such as Blogger and perhaps if you build it up enough you may want to pay for a domain name! Just a suggestion but on a blog you could write about anything, life stories, accomplishments, disappointments, fears, living with autism etc. I think you would get more views on this in the long run because it would appeal to many people who have family or are dealing with autism! You can make money (more in fact with a popular blog) from it if you have Adsense and other ad sites. YouTube videos may be up your ally as well because you could tape yourself talking instead of worrying about grammar and proof reading and YouTube videos are all the rage right now! People make quite a lot of money as Vloggers (video bloggers) as well! Just some suggestions Hun good luck!
