Mr. ThunderKeys, I appreciate your questions. As I wrote above, I wanted the photographs to speak for themselves without too much of my biased opinions (we all have biased opinions). I personally do not know many facts about the Dominican Republic to write an essay about it. I might write more on it although now, Hubpages left me with a sour taste in my mouth on this whole topic.
The annoying part was that indeed Hubpages was not specific in why they pulled my blog off. They did give me some reasons:
Substandard can mean a Hub:
* primarily contains text that appears elsewhere on the web
* that is empty or nearly empty
* with awkward or difficult-to-read formatting
* with broken links, broken images, or missing videos
* with images and/or video that contain conspicuous watermarks
* with poor spelling or grammar that interferes with the readability or credibility
* with excessive Amazon or eBay capsules
* comprised primarily of text that already appears elsewhere on the web
* with only purely personal content. A Hub should be able to be interesting, useful and understandable to people who do not know you
* that contributes nothing new to a heavily saturated topic
* with links to sites that are difficult to navigate
* that promotes or links to dubious products or offers (e.g. 'watch TV on your PC')
Thus, I sort of figured that maybe they pulled it off because there was indeed not too much writing that went with it. I have no problem with writing at length as can be seen from my blogs. It's just that my intention was different this time.
I had people leaving good comments, rating the blog well and it had started a discussion on the topic of the Dominican Republic which I appreciated. The comments and discussion is what I think is important on a social website: the interaction and sharing of ideas between people. That was happening until the blog was taken down.
Mr. Simon's answer was not helpful. Good is in the eye of the beholder. I could care less about his "how-to" blogs but I am sure others appreciate them. With that in mind if some do appreciate my blogs and they are not discriminating, rude or such, why not let it be?
I did find Whychic's answer most helpful. Thank you everyone for your opinion and thoughts.
