    Ok, please forgive me here but I really need a solid, you guys.

    I just made a new Twitter account that works in unison with my writing projects. Issue is, I have zero followers so it looks and feels....well, sad haha!

    Could I kindly ask (with a tail between my legs) that you "follow" me, and I will of course return the favor?

    I swear that I never figured that I would post something like this...ever LOL!

    Thank you, awesome people!

      I would use the search button to search for like-minded people interested in your subject on twitter if it is your aim to gain followers.  There seems little point otherwise.

    Twitter is not a resource. Want convincing? Pay someone. Trust me, save your money.

      Oh I know that Twitter is mostly for fun of course, but it certainly doesn't hurt to have  smile

    Well, nevermind actually lol. I am not going to be sticking with this site as I have just about had enough with the censorship that is beyond ridiculous. Far too much time and effort goes into my work to be consistently deleting my articles because I am honest and respect the intelligence of my readers. This is a joke. Awesome community though. Very unfortunate indeed.

    Good luck and best wishes to you all!

      You speak the truth. I've gone from 90+ to 8. I shall eventually give them one more shot. One does give them credit for free speech, that's why one more try.

        Thank you for acknowledging that I write from a place of sincere honesty. Honesty is a core value and to be invest 2 entire days into the most recent rejection....I mean, I am just absolutely stunned. I have been here 5 days. 2 of 3 articles have been moved into a subdomain for being considered top quality. Clearly, this is not a case of laziness or poor writing skills. Simply because sometimes, the truth just isn't pretty and I am not shy about this fact. Aren't people tired of the same recycled content over and over? I know that I am. Writers that bring reality checks to the table are silenced immediately it seems. Sorry for the vent. I am just very upset about all of this. I would rather be rejected for callousness than critical thinking. Sorry to see that this is also causing you some frustration also. Ridiculous!

          I retract. From what I've seen, HP has been extremely kind to you. It also seems you are aware of life as I am; yep, it sucks. What I have learned: if it does not work out, move on. I suggest you stay, you are luckier than you realize.

      So did I! The second that I stir the pot, even slightly, and rejected. Sorry that life isn't all how to make peanut brittle and 10 best ways to make money online I suppose  lmao! Pardon the sarcasm. It's my go to in these situations.

    I have been starting to see this myself, to be honest. As I go through the Forums and whatnot, I am often finding myself in shock at what a lot of people are experiencing. I recognize what you are saying and there is gratitude here. But the thing is, I am not entirely sure as to how I should go about this when I work from a different world view that one wouldn't exactly refer to as "vanilla." I like topics that bring about passion and get people talking. You have been here awhile, so I am compelled to ask: how does one who has had nothing but an unconventional life experience, try to be....conventional I guess? lol. I am not at all trying to offend and I feel like I make this very clear in my writing. But all of my best work has hit the virtual shredder thus far. I am having a struggle here with going the "no need to think" route and just popping out celebrity gossip or lists about shoes. Please advise if you don't mind?

    Thank you kindly for your input. I am one of those "open" types, and do appreciate those who keep it real as I try to do the same.

      So, you figured out I had at least 50, try 90+. HP has turned into a tough town. Not sure how to respond. Try me. Still saying you don't need me ((or anyone else (they will respond)), otherwise my next response is $100.

    HubPages relies on its advertisers for income. As do we all. Hubs that contravene the advertisers' guidelines won't be passed. It's as simple as that. It's not about the quality of the writing, or a personal thing against you. It's about keeping the goose which lays the golden egg happy. HP is a commercial site. It's here to make money.

    If you want to express yourself sans censor, start your own blog/website. That's what the rest of us do smile
