    Should I delete my hubs that are not featured due to quality?

    I have tweaked and tweaked, and apparently they are on a "black list".

    I think we are all in the same boat. If you do delete them, I would put them on another site such as Bubblews, etc. Do not just waste your hard work because HP thinks it is not up to par. Good luck!

      I'm with you on this one.  That sums it up perfectly.

      Thanks JT. I will look in to Bubblews. I have seen others mention it too.

    You can put them on another site, but that might serve to scatter your stuff too much around the net.  What if you took it off but saved it on your computer, waited a while, and uploaded it again?  That might work.

      Possibly. How would I go about saving though? Just copy and paste?

      I suppose.  I would probably just copy and paste the text capsules onto a word document, type the subtitles out myself, and just put the images in a folder.  I actually write everything on my pc first, so everything is already backed up.  Both alike

    If you are unable to modify them, I would copy them to another site, but I wouldn't permanently delete them.  Do you have another blogging account elsewhere you can post them to?

      No. But I am hearing good things about Bubblews. ???

    Before you decide your article is not quality, I would check the format.

    When mine are not featured the very first time, it's usually because I didn't do something right in the format and as a professional proofreader I should know better!  (But I don't proof my own work too well - most don't).  Perhaps you could let a friend look at it and ask them what they think might be wrong with it.  It could very well be you have good writing, but just not a good format. 

    Wouldn't it be great if we had the option to ask another hubber what's wrong with it? lol.

      That would be a great option! The hubs were once featured, they are not new, but I guess the "improvements" on HP didn't approve!

    No don't delete them. Try adding additional photographs and changing the title and it may just become featured again.
    If that is what you have already tweaked, don't delete just move elsewhere.

    Yes, and then move them to Bubblews.  Bubblews allows posts of only 400 characters and you will still make money. I have.

    xanzacow....glad you asked this question I have heard from several others regarding this issue and have been there myself. When you have been writing on HP for awhile and received positive comments from a regular following , then the
    " rug " is pulled out from under you, we do question WHY ? and what went awry ?
    It is your choice to either delete and submit elsewhere/ save and resubmit later/or drive yourself crazy rewriting over and over....as for me I have to be  " feeling " what and when I write , so sometimes a GOOD write can become garbage if overworked...just a thought...but I do share your frustration my friend....

      Thank you KJ. I always appreciate your input. I too have to feel the write, and it is hard to go back and edit once that particular mood is gone!

    Don't delete. Keep it unpublished. Review it after one or two months; if you still feel the stuff is good enough,  do some minor tweaks, republish and see what happens.

      If it's not just a blog, but has substantial content, then after a few months you could look for news articles and links that would update your information. If you can use your own photos to replace other's photos, I'm sure that would help too.
