    As you may have guessed, I am new to Hubpages.  I created my first hub and submtted it to be published.  I received a message from the moderator that it is not up to standards for any of the following reasons.....very generalized. How do I go about finding out more specific reasons?

    Thank you!

        Thank you for your prompt response, CASE1WORKER.  Since posting here, I've visited several Hubs to get a better idea of what a good Hub would look like.  I realize now, that yes, it does contain personal content, but it also was writen in a blog-like way. By that I mean written in a continual manner.  This isn't acceptable format, I have found.  Once again, thank you for your help!

          You know Faithjoy, I have been here a year but was away for some time.
          And then like you, I just recently come back and I see all these "substandard hubs".
          "What the ?!@#$%?"
          And so now, I am busily trying to at least make them "standard", so I feel you.

          Anyway, welcome to HP!

      The site FAQ can provide a lot more detail,

      Your question seems wellphrased, so it would not seem to be your 'writing'.  Subject matter? Sadly no one can comment on your piece without reading it!  Try leaving it for a few days and then read it again  -  you may notice phrasing which could be improved upon.  There is very little use in trying to edit your own work as soon as you have finshed it.  It has to be completely left and 'forgotten'  and then returned to after a few days  -  and you may see what was apparently unacceptable.  You may need to do a little re-writing. Have another go...!

    Faithjoy, you can also email the Hubpages Team to ask about the specific reason, and they may respond with more detailed feedback. http://hubpages.com/email/help/
