1st Article Submission Rejected (CC)

    Although my first 250 word sample to get approved to write for Constant Content was accepted, my first first 550+ article submission was rejected sad I feared this would happen. I'm actually surprised the editor(s) got to my work within 12 hours.

    Part of the email reads: "Thank you for this quality first submission. Please address comments to the right of the article before resubmission. Please review the following document that discusses demonstrative structures (this, that, it) and clarity. Hope to see more articles of the same caliber from you."

    Out of everything that I thought I would get rejected for, it ended up being use of "this," "that" and "it." sad

    I spent hours going over guidelines, formatting etc. and proofreading many times over. I also went through some grammar checkers, but they were not the best.

    Anyone here on HubPages write for Constant Content? I know there are some because I read articles on here related to CC.

    They are crazy at CC.  You pass their stupid test then they reject everything you write.  Big wasted of time.

      I only made minor mistakes actually. 2-3 mistakes. I intend to write a lot of articles for them. I just need to be careful.

      They mark what is specifically wrong in the article on the sides. I did not realize this, as I tried writing for a website a couple years ago, and they were not specific. CC says specific information on the sides of article.

      I'm hoping someone who writes for CC (and has written several articles) sees this thread.

    Maybe they have changed the way they do things.  You don't make any money until you sell an article which may never happen

    I had a few CC articles accepted but earned nothing (they were up for several years).  So I took them down and made hubs out of them.

    Aha Kain360, it is never easy to climb the first rungs of any ladder.  Do not be dejected.  Read and learn and try, try, try.
    It cannot be as hard as it is to "bid for writing jobs".  I have been doing that for 3 days with no success, yet I honestly thought I am good at what I do. 
    Mind you, I am not giving up.  I will stick with it until I break the ice.  I believe that once you start and do a few, then you're home and hosed.
    Go on. . .try. .

      Well, they told me the article was quality and that they hope to see more (assuming part of message was not a generic one that they send to everyone).

      I resubmitted it. I definitely do not want to give up. For years I have been searching for a place as good as this. It's way more professional than HubPages, Infobarrel, and other content sites. I like the business model (for the most part). Unfortunately, one must be careful not to type too fast or mistakes will likely occur in writing.

      Assuming I do not have any issues, I want to write hundred of articles, as I wrote over 200 on another HubPages account. I saw somebody that wrote over 5000 articles on the the CC site!!!

      I still see potential in HubPages, but Google Algorithms seem to destroy everything. There was a time when I made hundreds here monthly.

      Most people seem to either highly criticize CC or praise it. I take it some people are not native English speakers that try and join CC, though.

    In the past I have wrote a number of articles for them and I made a few sales. Most of those sales were former Hubs that I unpublished due to lack of traffic. That being said I only had a couple of articles that made it through on first attempt, they are strict with their guidelines.

    I don't write for them anymore. I had a couple of articles recently that they not only rejected, but they deleted and told me not to submit again. The one was deleted because I apparently deleted the inline editing notes (don't know how I would of done that) and the other because apparently I didn't make any changes (which wasn't true, somehow the editors missed the changes I made). So I was annoyed by what I thought was a unfair deletion, so I made any necessary revisions and resubmitted the articles. But after I did that they completely deleted all of my articles and told me that they would no longer accept any of my articles. I tried emailing them for a clearer explanation, but their only response didn't provide any answers and they haven't responded to any further inquires.
