Why do you think I was not accepted in Hubpages Apprenticeship?
I submitted an application for Hubages Apprenticeship to further improve my writing skills. To my disappointment, I was not accepted. I wonder what could be the reason(s) why.
Probably because there were a lot more applications than spaces.
You've only been here for 2 months and published 6 hubs. They are looking for people that can produce content on a regular basis and has been active here for awhile.
The waiting list is supposedly close to two years long already. It's going to be quite a while until just anyone can be accepted quickly.
Maybe there is nothing wrong with you at all. I guess the waiting list is already way too long, so just keep trying and don't give up if you think you are capable of doing the apprenticeship.
I am an HubPages Apprentice and I checked out your hubs to detect what the problem might be. I'm only going to point out what you can improve and what I think it can prove to be an obstacle.
I notice that your hubs have a low variety of modules and most of them have long lines of text after text after text. These are some guidelines you should follow:
- Have at least 2 high quality images properly sourced;
- The articles are usually 500 - 1500 words: Less is poor, more is usually more confuse or boring
- You should add video or poll capsules
You should try to build some pillar hubs too. Pillar hubs are hubs that get you a good number of organic viewers. So write about something you are passionate about and that you know other people will be too. A hobby, a movie, something. But make sure you spend lots of time and effort on those pillar hubs.
I hope this helps and wish you the best success!
EDIT: Also, make sure you don't copy content or that your content is available elsewhere, as this is detected, and you are not adding value to the community

Why have I not heard back about my apprenticeship application?I received an email last month from the HubPages apprenticeship team saying that I would hear back about my application by early September but have not heard anything yet. Could this mean that I didn't get accepted?
