    What do you do when everything you have ever written has been voted down on the same day?

      I do not mind negative feedback, but.... really?  plus there are no comments....

    Keep on keeping on. I have written the greatest article on the earth and if hubpages members could have seen my article before the referring sites found my article then it would have been voted down. Just write an excellent article and the rest will take care of the itself like I have done with my 1 article. You can do it and just be inspired by the 1 article that I have written and it is seen around the world in 8 countries and no members can vote my article down but only my answers on hubpages and that is not a bad deal to have when your article took off all by itself through 100 percent referring sites. I wish you the very best and much success on hubpages. Keep your chin up and keep your heart uplifted in your life on the earth. Smile and just know that you will write high quality content with your article.

    Just got to saddle up and get back on the writing horse. Strive to make each Hub better than the last one and experiment a little to gauge your audience.

    How did you know all of your writings had been voted down?  I don't know there is a way of knowing?  It is not in the feedback. 

    But  to answer your question, I will just keep on writing.  I know you must be feeling down right now, so take a break.  Watch a little TV, or play a word game.. that will take your mind off about your the negative feedback. 

    Today, I got a nasty comment in one of my hubs.. it was a typo but the person was mean and insulting.  Good thing we have to approve all comments first, so I just deleted it.  But it bothered me.. so I went to the store and bought some ice-cream.  Come to think of it, I should have had a chocolate bar.  Chocolate and ice-cream have the same effect to me.  I feel much better now.

    What about you?  What is your comfort food?

    thankyou for all the encouragement.  I do plan to keep on writing.  I guess the point i was trying to make was it seemed almost like a joke.  like a prank, albeit, kinda mean.  as for comfort food, icecream, cookie dough to be exact, and as for negative criticism, i do welcome it.  But as I said, when I checked my stories, which i do just in case i missed something the vote down sign was on all of them, in one day.  of course that was on april fools day, so i wondered it others got pranked.  thankyou you all for you kind words.  i will keep them in my heart, hee.

    As far as I know, you are unable to tell when someone has voted your hub down.  I believe that you might be mistaking the lower traffic sign on your account page for votes.

    The arrows that point down, listed by your hub, indicates that traffic is decreasing.  It does not indicate that people are voting down your hubs!

    If you think that "everything" is rated low--Go back over what you have written with an eye to be the devils advocat--Try taking the oposit view& see if what you said makes sense& is fair!
       It can be very easy to be One sided--Therefore ending up with something unrealistic& OR unfair!

    Well you have a very high score, and I'm pretty sure your hubs go down if they are not getting a lot of traffic. I've had hubs go down to 45 in a day and then jump back up and keep climbing about a day after publication. Good luck.
