    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.

      I never knew the training is offered to limited number of participants only. Thanks for the information.

    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.

      I don't think the length of your membership is a factor. A friend of mine who created an account in Hubpages at almost the same time as I did, got accepted on her first attempt for the training.

    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.

      Two years?! Whoa! I may have been an expert in Hubpages by then and learned the ropes my own way. LOL.

    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
