I was going to send an article to a blog that I read fairly frequently (shall remain unnamed) to be considered for a guest post. Then when I went to their "contribute" page I found the following:
"If you have not heard from us in two weeks, consider your article rejected and you can post it elsewhere"
Humph. I feel that is a bit off. Well, the first word that comes to mind is "arrogant". Disrespectful maybe. (My boyfriend offered: unprofessional).
If someone has taken the time to write and send in an article, surely acknowledge that in some way? I mean, they do (presumably) read them, so why not pop a quick mail notifying you of the decline?
Perhaps I value consideration very highly, or I'm too sensitive. Oh well.
I guess for some, that statement is indicative of the world of writing/publishing in general. However, I consider it to be rather bald and bordering on rude. The same thing could have been said in a politer way than that. Stick with hubpages
I wouldn't lose sleep over it. What site was it? You don't need to link it.

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?
