    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article HACCP Principles on Receiving Food Procedures. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Basically, you need to actually write an article not just create a list with a bunch of loosely linked items.  It should have an intro telling what the article will be about then a discussion of each item mentioned in the intro followed by a conclusion or summary of some sort.  Try looking at some good basic references or tutorials on how to write an essay for guidelines.

          You're welcome.  Good writing is something that can be learned and while you want to be as strong a writer as you can, hubs will be accepted even without the absolute highest level of writing.  So you don't have to study it indefinitely to have something accepted.  I know it can be disheartening to have things rejected but if you spend some time in the learning center and get the basics down you can continue to strengthen your skills as you learn more about writing.  Then as you revise your earlier hubs, each time they will get better and your new articles will be better from the start. None of us were born knowing how to write, we all had to learn and continue to learn as we go along. Good luck!

          Edit:  I just read a couple of your travel articles which are quite well done and include different kinds of information and features.  If you just use the same skills you used to create those I think you'd be set.

            Thank you for your kind words Natalie. As you've noticed my travel articles, almost all of it were featured.  That's why it's alarming for me to see the drastic change in my hubscore plus getting unfeatured articles. I'm actually thinking that the problem maybe is about the topic, but I believe that these topics are so important not only in my industry, but also at home.  So I just want to know what necessary improvements I can to do for my article.  Thank you again!

      Use  legal photos. Careful with the links to your other hubs.

    I don't think you used the word 'accept' enough. Couldn't you squeeze a few more instances in there? big_smile

    You need an introduction.

    Use bullet points by all means, but make sure you use paragraphs too.

    Do get rid of the 'accept's. You have 56 of them. And 53 'reject's.

    Learn how to format a hub properly. Have you spent any time at all looking at other articles on HubPages? https://hubpageshelp.com/

    What has that image with the words, "What you need to know about eating expired food" got to do with anything? You haven't included any specific information regarding that, so why use it?

    What's HACCP?

    Look how your hubscore dropped after publishing. While scores aren't terribly important, if they take a nosedive like that, then you know your writing isn't very good. Or, at least, the way you presented it isn't very good.

    I'm sure you can do better if you try to understand what is required. Then it will be 'accepted' smile

    Edit: Blimey, I just looked at your profile. You've been here six years and already have 15 hubs. So what's going on here?

      I unpublished most of my articles from the past and deleted others since it didn't meet the standards.  I simply want to have a fresh start.  Honestly, I don't know if that's the right move, but yeah I did it.  Yes, I've noticed too the drastic drop in my hubscore, from 74 now less than 40.  Precisely that's one of the reason I'm trying to seek for help in here.

      Thanks for your feedback!  Much appreciated.  I'll go through my article and make the necessary changes as what you've suggested.
