I've been working on this flat out this morning for about four hours and I'm now so brain dead I can't see what else needs to be fixed.
Can you please check it out. I'm aware that there are probably quite a few grammatical errors.
I don't think villages are referred to as 'she'
"The community also prides herself...", neither are communities.
The TV series is called "A Place in the Sun"
"Bits about Olvera"? Facts About Olvera might be better?
Sub-heading capitalisation issues. Need to be consistent.
Hope that helps.
Thanks. Does it matter if the TV series is called "A Place in the Sun?" That's why I selected it. It's not copyright to use a phrase in the English language.
No, but you called it something else, 'There's a Place in the Sun'. That would be incorrect
I'm sorry, I'm missing something here. The phrase, 'a place in the sun,' is quite a common phrase in the English language. A TV series in the UK co-opted the phrase, precisely because it was such a cliched phrase. So I'm still unsure of what you're saying. I'm not going to change it.
The name of the series is 'A Place in the Sun'. You called it 'There's a Place in the Sun'. Do you see what I'm saying? When referring to a TV series, you should call it by the correct title.
It has nothing to do with common phrases or copyright.
Edit: this is what you have on your hub:
"Having watched the TV series, 'There's a place in the sun,' and knowing how important views are to some people..."
??? My article has nothing to do with the TV series. I am using a phrase that is fairly common in travel magazines, songs, etc. for SEO purposes.
Aha!!!! I got it. Sorry. My brain is completely bent. I shall attend to it in the morning when my brain is clear. Thank you for pointing it out!
Edit: Ahhh.... I knew we'd get there in the end
I like the thumbnail pictures. I think I should start incorporating that feature in my articles
Tess, your article is beautiful! The pictures are amazing! I think that an issue I'm noticing right away that may be keeping it from a niche site is that the actual text of your piece is under 1,000 words. Personally, with my own articles, I've noticed that anything under 1,000 words is looked over by editors for niche sites, especially if the ratio of pictures to words is off.
Here are some subtexts that I think would add both depth and word count to your piece:
- 200-350 words on the local cuisine.
- 80-150 words, tips on backpacking or traveling by foot through the city (including a list of what to bring with you, what to pack in your backpack, what kinds of shoes to wear...).
- 80-150 words on what means of travel are available there (besides walking) and how to obtain it.
- 80-150 words on how much money to bring with you for lodging, food, souvenirs etc.
I think this is a lovely piece that gives a glimpse into a place most of us will never get to go, but for those who may be searching for travel tips to Olvera, Spain, you want to cast your net wider
It took me a while to get back to it, but I can finally start working on my hp articles again. Had a lot on my plate!
So, belated, it may be, but I have taken all your suggestions into account, and improved it as much as I can.
Please will you verify that it is all now spic and span!

I have been here on HP over 3 years, and still don't fully comprehend the concept! I get that they are words and/or phrases that reflect the content of your article, aren't tags, and that they're not to be 'stuffed'. Apparently I have some block to this, since some of my articles have...

Someone said, somewhere that to be able to make a living as a writer, you need to be able to research and create an entirely unique, let's say, 615-word article in around an hour. I'm specifically omitting the name of the person who said this to show emphatically that I'm not calling said person...
