Am I a failure because I published one bad hub?
Just this afternoon, I got a notification saying that one of my articles was overly promotional. That means that I did something wrong. So I fixed it. I hate when this happens. What do I do? Give up?
Not at all. You just keep on writing. Every time you get a good idea, just write it and upload.
Don't give up! You have good hubs also. Some are on HealDove I see. That's excellent! Keep going.
This has happened to me, too. And, it probably has happened to a lot of writers, here, but we never know it because we only see the final result of their completed work. You are in no way a failure! Please don’t give up :-) You are an important part of Hubpage community. You do matter!

I have just received an email notification that one of my "micro-poems" has been unpublished as it was found to contain "adult" content. Now this hub, "Micro-poem (No.8) Five Times a Day" was published months ago on my first attempt and featured. I have never made any...

I've got the "Overly Promotional" red skull of doom on my top trafficked hub.Naturally it was the first one I edited. The affiliate links and "overly promotional" warnings at the top of the hub went away in the workshop. I republished it last night, and it's still published...

I would really like to know why my hubpage article is getting turned down? I finally had a chance to work on it and it took me a while to edit it. When I got done I was sure it was just fine but then I got a message it needs more work. I would like to know how I can fix it so it will published? Is...
