10 English Tongue Twisters to Improve English Pronunciation
Not sure what else I need to do to get it accepted by Owlocation - or any other niche site - as it is published on HB but rejected by Owlocation subject to improvement.
There are a few inconsistencies in sub-head title casing, but they're not critical.
I think the frequent use of boldface and boldface italics might be an issue. It makes the layout look messy, and boldface is seen as being shouty on the Internet.
I agree with Rupert. The bold print could be a problem. The links to your other articles could be, too. The first site that you link to doesn't seem to exist any more. When I clicked on the link, I got a warning saying that it was dangerous. The incomplete summaries in the descriptions of your articles look strange.
Your title has "English" in it twice.
Your bio needs a period(.) at the end. That is a red flag that you need to proof your article.
The bold type has a specific purpose. In the writing guidelines, HP discusses this.

Thanks Kenna, I have deleted one "English" in the title, added a full stop in my bio, which meant I had to write "&" instead of "and" in order not to exceed the 140 character limit, and I have removed the bold type except for the tonguetwisters themselves.
Try this one:
"Betty Botter bought some butter but she said: 'this butter's bitter! If I put it in my batter, my batter will be bitter, but a bit o' better butter will make my batter better!'
So Betty Botter bought some butter, better than the bitter butter, put it in her batter. She put a bit o' better butter into her batter, made her batter better."
Thanks FatFreddysCat, that's a hard one to say!...may I add that to my page please?

I speak English, or at least what passes for "native" English in my country. But I'm just too lazy to learn how to write an article in "proper" English. I know you Americans are a bunch of bleeding-heart liberals who want to help the downtrodden of the world so would a few of...
