Substandard blog/Flickr?

    My blog is unpublished for being substandard, yet it has a 64 rating. I'm new to HubPages. I'd assume it should have a lower rating to be an endangered species.
    Furthermore, is it a no-no to have flickr from yahoo photos in your work? Apparently, flickr won't let you have photos in the margin.
    I'll try to add some more content beyond link page description.

      If you wrote a blog post, not a HubPage, it will be unpublished as substandard.

      A HubPage is not a blog.  It's more like an article you'd read in a magazine. It's at least 400 words long, and it will do better if you make it much longer.  It should be about an interesting subject which people want to read about.

      The place for personal information about you is your profile, not a Hub.

      Hope that helps.

    As you read the FAQs, pay particular attention to what makes a hub "overly promotional." In the Learning Center, make sure to read about using capsules (like the photo capsule), and how to create hyperlinks in your text capsules.
