    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: Don’t Celebrate Christmas? Here’s What You Can Do!

    The spaces in the article and the lack of sources for the photos might be a problem, but I think the main one is the unrelated link. In a section about Hinduism that describes how Hindus spend Christmas Day, you have a link to an article on a real estate blog that talks about an attitude of gratitude. The link seems to be promotional as well as unrelated. The linked words say "enjoying time with their loved ones", but the article has nothing to do with Hindus enjoying time with their loved ones and is about Thanksgiving, not Christmas.

    You have some syntax issues, as well.  I would avoid exclamations (!) and you quite a lot of them in the article.

    Thanks Alicia and Kenna!

    The images are from shutter stock, should i add as source for them?

      As long as you haven't taken photos that should be paid for (unless you paid for them, of course), you can add a single link at the bottom of the article, saying 'Images courtesy of Shutterstock'.

      Don't use any images that you haven't checked the license for.

      Also, watch the content. Your title promises some suggestions about what a person can do if they don't do Christmas, but after a long diversion about religions, you only give three suggestions.

      You should go right through the article and make sure that every paragraph, every sentence, is connected to what people can do if they don't celebrate Christmas. Anything else is fluff and filler.

    Focus on your title. Half of your article is about religions that do not accept Christmas. Is that what the reader expects, or do they want ideas on what to do during this time?
    Getting rid of these sections will also allow to delete the real estate blog. Useless.
    After the intro, use a bullet list with a lot of ideas. You can go into detail underneath.
    The shutterstock images are not creative commons. If you persist in using them you will never have an article moved to a niche site where you may have more traffic.
    Always remember to write to your title.
