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!
Aaaaand I just realized that I missed a letter or 2 in my title.
Nap in order perhaps? :p
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.
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!
(Sorry for typos. Using the mobile here lol)
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.
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.
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
Ill follow you. If i like what your tweetin then ill retweet and like. Good luck.

I have created a pitiful 29 hubs in four years. But I'm a lot more active on facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Search. You people MUST LIVE ON HERE! How in the world do you find subjects for crying out loud? You must be just writing for writing sake. In order to write something, I have to FEEL IT,...

Would you be in favor of having invited party guests address their own "thank you" card envelopes?In the interest of saving time, research, and mistakes, the sponsor of a birthday party where gifts were expected asked the guests to address their own near future "thank you"...

Why do people find it so hard to say wonderful things like "Sorry", "I Love You" or "Thank You"?

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all my religious friends here. I guess I have been wondering and asking myself whether I made the right choices for a while. You - know - could I be wrong? Is there really a god? Those sort of questions. Well, you have helped me to answer those questions, for...
