If you don't get into the apprenticeship program, does that mean you are a sub-standard writer?
I don't think so. I didn't get in when I applied 2 months ago and I've since won 2 hubnuggets plus a second place hubnugget and acquired 20,000 views in 3 months. I believe they tend to look for specific topics of interest and it also depends on space availability for the class.
If you're as egocentric as I am, you'll find that you're too good for their programme. When there's apparently over 20,000 people discovering HubPages a month (according to all those little notes around the site), there's few chances that a self-loving overlord-of-one's-own-dominion is going to be one of the 30 people getting the apprenticeship.
In all, don't be offended if they turn you down. You're too good for them. Like me!
Have can I not choose this as the best answer!
I love your answer. I'm glad to hear that I am not the only self-loving overlord-of-one's-own-dominion. I was not accepted either, and I am sure it is because I am too good for their program.
Well, thanks for choosing me. I seem to be a bastion of egocentrisism. But I really think DS Duby deserves the best answer as his was more informative. Thanks a lot anyway ^^
No way john your answer was way to creative to not be number 1, it was definitely the best answer! I like to think I'm a little egocentric too and just to damn good for the program. lol
Yes ! There should be and option for multiple best answers!
