I was going to send an article to a blog that I read fairly frequently (shall remain unnamed) to be considered for a guest post. Then when I went to their "contribute" page I found the following:
"If you have not heard from us in two weeks, consider your article rejected and you can post it elsewhere"
Humph. I feel that is a bit off. Well, the first word that comes to mind is "arrogant". Disrespectful maybe. (My boyfriend offered: unprofessional).
If someone has taken the time to write and send in an article, surely acknowledge that in some way? I mean, they do (presumably) read them, so why not pop a quick mail notifying you of the decline?
Perhaps I value consideration very highly, or I'm too sensitive. Oh well.
I guess for some, that statement is indicative of the world of writing/publishing in general. However, I consider it to be rather bald and bordering on rude. The same thing could have been said in a politer way than that. Stick with hubpages
I wouldn't lose sleep over it. What site was it? You don't need to link it.

Yep, got a HubPro notice over a week ago. Still no editor invasion. Presumably it's an indication of niche inclusion. I like niche inclusion.

In the past there was a lot of debate about the potential advantages of placing a full width image at the head of the article. Paul E was a great fan of this, and many people promoted the idea. There used to be an extra...
