One of my articles has just been rejected by Constant Content for using the "I" word. They reject wholesale everything written in the first person singular (even comedy). Any ideas on this?
Have you tried another word like "My" or "Myself?".
I guess I'm fairly new to writing. So I don't know much.
But, I always try to help whenever MY head tells me...
They're pretty strict about that. You have to write in the second or third person.
"If you want to learn how to...."
"If they want to learn to..."
"I want to learn how to..." will get you rejected quicker than you can blink an eye.
eye just want to say that eye cant believe that eye can have a hub shot down because eye use to many eyes in it. and eyed like to also state that eye am upset about it. lol hows that ?
I understand that they want informative articles, and they do explain in detail why they don't allow first person singular, but to have a blanket ban is short-sighted.
For example comedy is often more effectivce when told from personal experience (and my article was a comedy piece).
Does anyone know of a site which is keen to accept comedy and creative stuff (apart from Hubpages)?
