Articles for AxleAddict have to meet the quality standards of the HubPages family of sites, which can be found on our HubPages’s Editorial Policy Page. In addition, here is some advice which may help your article get accepted on AxleAddict.
Your Photos. Your own pictures of mechanical things, in particular, are like gold. A picture of your engine with the timing belt off, your RV’s disassembled air conditioner, your broken golf cart, or your mismatched camper shell is precious, even if it’s not beautiful. These pictures bring new information from the world into the web, in a way stock pictures of cars and car parts can’t do.
Your Specific Advice. Now almost anyone who has had a car a few years without burning it up or wearing it out can come up with some general advice: change your oil, be skeptical when offered a loan to buy a car, advice like that. But if you can share the particular uncertainties presented by your particular ride, and how you dealt with them, someone will definitely learn from that.
Your Experience, Your Name, Your Face. When people look for free advice on how to deal with their car problems, hoping not to have to pay the dealership or the mechanic, they wonder: “Can I trust this author and what they are saying?” Readers need to trust someone. We are hoping they will trust Axleaddict, and if they do, it will be because they can trust you. We would love it if you would call yourself a human-sounding name, give yourself a profile photo, a profile biography, and an about-the-author bio on each article.
Your Best Shot at Layout. If you do a repair job you are proud of, and document it in pictures, but don’t know how to make your piece elegant and beautiful, send it in anyway. But you can save your readers some effort if you write a new article this way:
Your Responses to Comments.You can engage readers and build credibility by responding to questions and comments from readers. See, for example:
Your Very Expert Advice on Products.You may earn a little revenue by including Amazon capsules in your article, but only put products your readers will want or need AND that you know yourself and can recommend to the reader specifically. For example, say why a certain aftermarket brand is good enough, or say why an OEM part is necessary for that purpose. Help readers find the exact part or manual that fits their particular car.
