I created two hub pages because I thought the first name I had chosen was too complicated. However I soon discovered that I ha violated HubPages rules because I published the same article on each page. Yes, I am guilty of plagarizing myself. I have tried to explain, correct, and molify the incident on both pages. I have emailed the moderator hoping for some sort of guidance. So far all the emails I get say my explanation is duplicate, substandard, and personal, please fix it. I have deleted one site and am about to delete the other one. I guess I better read the forum rules before I post this one. I just want to write and not get caught in some sort of Catch-22. By the way Catch-22 was a term coined by Joseph Heller in the novel of the same name, (I want to make sure I do not steal someone's artistic property.)
I just had a look at your Hub. I can see why you're being told it violates HP rules, and it has nothing to do with being duplicated.
First, it's too personal. HubPages is not a blogging site, nor a place to write your memoirs. It's a place to write long articles on subjects of interest to other people.
Second, the grammar and layout are poor. You have no paragraphs. I know this kind of writing is seen as acceptable in stream-of-consciousness creative writing but it looks bad on the screen.
My post called "Freckled Kid" was published just fine. I wouldn't mind you reading that and let me know why that one complied.
You should be able to read more information on the guidelines either at the help button at the top of the page (which is really FAQ) and at the bottom of the page at the learning centre.
Wishing you good luck with your writing here.

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...
