What steps do you take to ensure you are happy with your Hubpages article?
I ask myself, would I understand this if I were a reader?
Also, I like to take a step back, maybe sleep on it, then publish it.
I think it's important to be mentally prepared to have to revise an article.
I edit it many time, then I read it out loud to see if it flows well. It is amazing the difference btw reading it and hearing it. Then I let it sit for a little bit, come back and ready it and decide if it is okay to publish or do I toss it.
Mostly proofreading is very important.
You need to have some inspiration to write the article in the first place. Another thing is always write about what you know and never try to fake anything just to impress your readers.
you might succeed once or twice but not always.
So write what you know, write what you think is right, and always reread your article.
Write what you love. edit, edit and edit until you feel it's ready to publish.
i ask someone to proofread it for me, and I read it over and over a few times.
I make sure that it flows and it's not boring, maybe you could include some humor to make it more interesting. The important thing is to write about what you love and what interests you because 1. you'll enjoy it more and 2. it will also sound more interesting to your readers
I write, edit as many times as necessary, re-read, ask my wife and son to go through and let me have their opinion and when this is done I read once again. If I feel happy I go ahead and publish.
Proof read it several times and then proofread it some more. I often check my facts through the web, unless it is a subject with which I am truly knowledgeable.
Definately, proof-read and fact-check. I want to make sure content is accurate in terms of correctness of fact -- more so than correctness of grammer and spelling
Sometimes proof-read twice. Once right after writing and another time after a good night sleep after the article has "incubate" in your mind.
You know how things look or are read differently in the morning the next day.
Leave articles in draft mode until the two steps are completed before publishing.
Does it speak my thoughts?
Is it gramatically correct?
Will the readers understand my point?
Have I stated my view or recollections, without embarrassing or calling others out for ridicule?
Is there fact or humour?
Could I say this particular thing in front of any that might be involved?
Could I tell this tale in front of anyone that it might involve?
Can anyone else relate to this story?
Can I stand up and defend this story?
I definitely proofread them. I also compare them to Hubpages with good scores and add to them accordingly. I try to make sure they are organized and easy to read. And interesting! I aim to chuckle at least once.

In the article tab there is a filter at the highlevel, HubPages, Soapboxie, etc. I like the HubPages filter having all articles across all domains.It would be helpful to have a filter that showed all the articles that are NOT part of the HubPages domain together. And then to have a...

I just joined writing.com hoping to get feed backs on my HP articles, but most of the writings there are novels, short stories and poems. I did not see any info-article (all of my writings on HP are info-articles), unless I missed the section on this. Your comment pls.
