One of my articles has just been rejected by Constant Content for using the "I" word. They reject wholesale everything written in the first person singular (even comedy). Any ideas on this?
Have you tried another word like "My" or "Myself?".
I guess I'm fairly new to writing. So I don't know much.
But, I always try to help whenever MY head tells me...
They're pretty strict about that. You have to write in the second or third person.
"If you want to learn how to...."
"If they want to learn to..."
"I want to learn how to..." will get you rejected quicker than you can blink an eye.
eye just want to say that eye cant believe that eye can have a hub shot down because eye use to many eyes in it. and eyed like to also state that eye am upset about it. lol hows that ?
I understand that they want informative articles, and they do explain in detail why they don't allow first person singular, but to have a blanket ban is short-sighted.
For example comedy is often more effectivce when told from personal experience (and my article was a comedy piece).
Does anyone know of a site which is keen to accept comedy and creative stuff (apart from Hubpages)?

Hi all - no matter what I do, my articles keep getting rejected at Constant Content. The first time they said I sent a blank file. The second time they said they couldn't accept content with the type of address I put in and said I was using promotional content which is not true. I was very careful...

I recived a note from HubPages an article is eligible for a niche site. The notes at the bottom stated to check grammar. I have done corrections using grammarly and one other editing software. The question is do I wait for them to review or do I go through the process of submitting to a niche site?

There's a website out there that's going around the web and grabbing articles and author's names and then (I think) putting them through an article spinner and posting them on the site. A bunch of folks at Demand Studios have found their names and (sort of) their articles on there. The site is...
