I really tried to follow the guidelines. No spammy link. Outside sources that are relevant. No self-promotion. Sometimes it stays published for a few hours then gets taken down. Any advice is appreciated!

It's very transparent that all of your hubs exist to promote businesses. And your profile has a link to your personal business website, which says you do this sort of thing for a living. It's not hard to put 2 and 2 together. HP has been cracking down on this, at least when it is very obvious, as it is in your case.
You'll either have to get much more clever about concealing the true purpose of your hubs, or remove HP from your business strategy.
Also, when your hubberscore is below 85, all of your outside links are "nofollow" so you aren't really helping your clients anyway with your current score of 57.
I'm not sure it's worth it for you to jump through all the hoops to make HP work for you as you intended. But best of luck with whatever you decide.
But what business am I promoting in my wedding drone photography? And I understand your point about business link in profile. But none of those business are my clients. I am trying to get some credible hubs posted. My friend had a wedding with a drone and I hated it which inspired me to write this post.
But that's what I did. They are to the wall street journal and the new york times.
No. You have a link to a site called weddingshoppeinc.com, which is a shopping site, not a news site. I'm not sure anyone can help you if you are going to deny what is plain as day.
Also, one of your subtitles is "Pros and Cones" which isn't helping you either.
Yeah that was my fault. It wasn't like that before, I just changed it and now rechanged it. Which means now its unpublished again. I linked to the wedding blog because I think it reinforces what I wrote. I don't understand what you mean as "plain as day" I don't feel like this promotes any business at all. I have two videos from two separate companies which I neither support or have any affiliation with in anyway.
I doubt it has anything to do with staying published, but your one image appears to be "lifted" from someone else. Unless you have contacted the NYT and received specific approval to use that picture, it is illegal to re-publish it as it has the same copyright your hub does. Saying where you got it from neither negates that copyright nor makes it legal to ignore it.
