I recently tried to apply my first article,Disposable Pads Aren't The Only Option, to HealDove and the rejection email was very vague. I don't know what's wrong with it.
That's a very Welsh name, Dai Davis
What does the email say? There are often specific suggestions at the end.

Thank you for submitting your article, Disposable Pads Aren't The Only Option, for consideration on HealDove. Unfortunately, your article was not selected. Since you already confirmed that your article is free from content and structural issues, it is possible that it was not selected due to the nature of its topic. Perhaps your article:
didn't address the changes requested by the site's editor.
is about a very general topic that is already extensively covered on HealDove or elsewhere online. Perhaps you can add a new spin on the topic to make it your own. If your article is a popular (e.g., chocolate chip cookies) recipe, adding gorgeous, original, step-by-step photos is a great way to make it stand out from the rest.
is about a YMYL (Your Money, Your Life) topic. YMYL articles need to be written by a professional or expert on the topic, by someone who has had personal experience with it, or list credible, well-cited sources.
is about a current event and written in a way that won't be relevant to readers in the future. Perhaps you can expand on your topic and offer historical analysis or additional insight beyond covering the facts of the story.
is unlikely to satisfy readers for some other reason. Your article might be deeply valuable to you, your friends, or your family, but not be written in a way that is useful or accessible to a wider audience. Or perhaps your article could be useful to readers, but it doesn't convey your experience or involvement with the topic.
You are welcome to rework this article and submit it for re-review in 60 days, but please keep in mind that the topical issues above can be difficult to fix. Your effort may be better spent publishing a new article, or submitting a different one for HealDove after the 14-day wait period.
If you need more help, or would just like to get some additional opinions and perspectives, we invite you to post in the Improving Your Article Forum.
Well the Dai is Japanese for beauty or table, my mom says one thing but google says another.
I had a quick read through and noticed several grammatical errors. For example, "If not that fine..." It should be "If not, that's fine..." Also in the same paragraph, "the average women", should be 'woman'. These small errors are sprinkled right through the article. So you need to proofread carefully, or get someone to do it for you. You can also use the free online checker, Grammarly.
The subheading, "What Type of Menstruating Human Are You?" is just weird
Make sure you have permission to use those images - you can't just take them - linking back to the source does not make it legal. The second one is too small anyway.
Move the top poll down the page. The article should begin with a proper introduction.
There is a lot of work to get this suitable for a network site. And even then, I'm not certain they would accept it.
My thoughts on your article are as follows.
1. The information you give is generic and there are thousands of articles with the same info that will rank higher than yours in search results.
2. The four links at the end of the article are for specific brand names and are probably too promotional to make it onto a niche site like HealDove.
3. Too many exclamation points!!!
It's your last paragraph... the exclamation points make it sound like an advertorial for the products and that detracts from your article.
"Enjoy a better period experience!"
"Switch to The DivaCup today!"
"good for the planet!"

Iv'd recently had two articles denied from Owlcation. The first is a book review (I read on another forum that that's where book reviews should be submitted, although it doesn't make sense to me). The second is a photo play-by-play of an nearly extinct bug working in my yard, The American Burying...

Yesterday I've sent out my home office hub to Dengarden--even after I've took upon your advice by changing title and reorganizing it, it's been declined once again. Any new tips to help me out would be great. Here's the link: https://hubpages.com/living/Back-to-Bas … uter-Desks

Do you prefer articles written by someone with experience on topic or just researched it?If you are reading about something important to you, do you prefer the author actually have experience with the topic, or is researching and presenting you with facts they have read enough?

I received a low rating for this hub -- http://moviesreviews.hubpages.com/hub/R … Fear-Movie -- This rating is way below any of my other hubs and I am just wondering why. I have no idea what I may be missing or what I need to improve on. This hub is actually the longest one I have made and...
