Can someone please review my article "The 5 Phases of Changing Your Last Name that Every Woman Should Know," and suggest how I might improve it to get it moved to the niche site PairedLife? Thank you.

You should know that you don't choose the niche site your hub appears on, the team does this.
My suggestions are these:
Your title needs to be changed because it is awkward and is too long.
In some ways your post reads like a blog because it reflects your own feelings about accepting your husband's name.
Your writing skills are excellent, but your intro should not carry a subtitle but should repeat your title in the first sentence or so in some way.
Finally, I found your topic a bit strange because you've made big deal about changing your last name but most women, me included, would never give doing this a second thought.
It will be interesting to see how many views this topic gets.
Take a look at the other posts on that niche site and see how your article is different. It is my impression that HP staff wants the articles on a niche site to be similar; if yours is too different it will not be moved.
My only comment on the style was that I too thought it was too bloggy. (Is that even a word?) When you discuss the 5 points, include a bullet list under each to make it more skimmable. I would want to include at least 5, maybe 10 points under each subtitle. If you do not have that many points, think about it some more.
Since this was not accepted to a niche site at first, you will have to submit it manually. If you are still in the HP boot camp, I would suggest waiting until you have several other articles before doing so.

I know this article is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but it does fairly well for me. I've tried submitting it at least twice in the past and it gets rejected with the basic e-mail. Is it worth editing again and trying to get it approved, or am I wasting my time? Am I focusing on a lost...

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the topics I write on the way I write on them so I'll likely need new homes for all...

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...

I have written a series of articles/essays under the title "The Cackleberry Farmer." Only the latest of around ten issues has been selected for "LetterPile" niche site. HP won't allow links to the other hubs in the series, and anyone reading the one on LetterPile won't really be...
