    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: Earthbound Spirits - Are They Real? (must be signed in to view)

    I think the problem is that the article is entirely about your personal experience. This makes it resemble a blog post, not an article. In addition, the title suggests that you are going to describe whether earthbound spirits are real. Including your own experience is important, but I think you need information from additional sources in order to fully answer the question in the title. Adding references for these sources would be good. Adding at least one photo with a suitable license would probably be helpful as well.

    The only way this is going to work for you is if you write an article about Reiki Healing that explains the concept.

    Personal experiences, no matter how vivid they may be to the person who experiences them, is not what HubPages publishes.

    I tried to understand your narrative and then came across "I later read that public houses are amongst the most likely places to acquire spirit attachments!" Aha, that explains it all.

    I agree with Linda. Also, you need to include photos or images. I sure you can find some on free photo sites. I would start with an intro, experts, and add your story. These stories are not uncommon. I am sure you can find some sample articles through Google to help you organize your article.

    Yes. There is a lot of sites that offer "free photos", but just be careful that's all I'm saying. There is a company called "Getty Images". That say they are free. Then they send you a huge bill. Then if you don't pay they will sue you. So just be careful on where you obtain images.

      I am not sure how you got the idea that Getty images are free, unless it was from misunderstanding the term "royalty free"--which is used by all stock agencies to describe pictures you buy rights to with a one-off payment.

    I'll certainly take note of the advice given here about writing articals.  Perhaps I'd be better submitting this as a blog post somewhere then.

    Thanks everyone!

      When you wrote this, did you use multiple text capsules or write it all in one capsule?  Using multiple capsules with subheadings would help as well, I think.
