    I'm afraid there are quite a lot of problems with your hub. For example, there are grammar and punctuation problems throughout the article. The first link at the bottom is promotional, which isn't allowed. The second link goes to an identical article to your hub. HubPages wants original work, not work that has already been published elsewhere.

      Yep, that's why it's not passing. It is duplicate content. I'm surprised they did not just tell you that.

    The first thing I noticed is that there are a lot of run on sentences in your article; meaning you are not using punctuation correctly. There needs to be better use of periods and commas. In other words, there are grammatical errors and the piece needs to be proof read.

    In your bio you claim to have "a nack for writing." In the first place it's "knack" and I have to tell you this piece does not demonstrate a high skill level. You have lots of grammar and spelling errors, and have not taken time to learn what HubPages is looking for.

    Put the write up in Grammarly app, it will rectify most of the errors. I would have pointed out, but there are too many to highlight. You haven't put apostrophe 's' in many places.

    Write title in the Title Case.

    Don't over elaborate one message in different sentences.

    Other Hubbers have given crucial inputs. Rectify those mistakes please.

    Good luck.

      This piece can't be published, it's duplicate content. I didn't notice until I saw that Sherry and Alicia had pointed it out and then I Googled a piece of a sentence from the article and immediately a duplicate popped up in search results. Although your suggestions are correct, it's not possible for this piece to get published.

    I noticed many punctuation errors. I also notice a few abbreviations, I am not sure if these make a smooth read. Why don't you use spelling and grammar checker..Grammarly is one tool which is quite helpful. Try it out.

    In addition to what the others have said you advice is pretty generic and it leaves me thinking--so why do I believe this person is an expert? 

    For example: can the "average" person you are addressing make a good profit off writing ebooks?  Probably not, its a pretty saturated market now and the kindle forums are full of disappointed new authors with literally zero sales.

    Your advice feels generalized, not very convincing, and a little out of date.  it would be different if you gave specifics of either how you achieved success or how other named people did--with actual strategies that work in the current online climate (which is largely a post-passive income world.)

      I agree with you .I never said i was an expert .My article was to basically  show  people ways to do it without spending money. Yes i do agree with you though my article was kind of vague and had some grammar  errors and some of the info was out of date .  Yes thanks for the advice ,i will focus more on how to achieve the success rather than listing out of date info .I went ahead and erased it and am in process of rewriting it so it will pass . Also the info in my article i want it to be useful ten years from now,so i have to rewrite it. thanks for your feedback.

        Well, if you are not an expert, why would anyone read your article?  And by expert I simply mean: you have done what you described and achieved meaningful success (e.g. earned a pay-out).

        Rather than 100 vague ideas, why not describe one thing you have actually done where you earned enough to get a payment.
