    Hi, can you help me with my hub?

    So my hub wasn't featured and was returned to draft saying it needs improvement as it contains spammy elements. I'm still in bootcamp and it's my 3rd article (only the 2nd article was featured, so far).

    Hoping help from you hubbers to check on my work. I already resubmitted/republished it. If you have time to do so, here's the link:

    Thanks in advance

      I think you have some good information here, but there are ways to improve your article. I would add a couple more pictures to start with. I would also have text heading titles that were more Google searchable. For example, the title of one of yours is How Did I Manage It? Instead, you might change it to How to Manage Paranoia. If you have sources, list them at the bottom of your article as this makes you sound more credible. I hope this helps!

    Hi there,

    It's the link to the maintenance drugs article, I think. It looks commercial. Reference links should go to non commercial sites. I didn't check the others.

    Your article is well written and helpful.
