I Wrote A 3500 Word Article, They Refused To Publish It
Hey my WA Family, this is just a quick one to share something that happened to me a while back. There is a website and a YouTube channel that I follow, and the topic they cover is something I have gone through.
I watched one of their interviews on YouTube, and there were some questions raised in the interview that I thought I could answer, so I felt encouraged to share my experience.
I contacted the person in charge of the website on Instagram and told her that I was willing to write an article for their website to share my experience because I felt some of the questions raised at their recent interview on YouTube could be answered by my article.
I Asked Her If They Are Interested In My Story
When I contacted her on Instagram, I shared with her the points that I will cover with my article which will include my personal experience. I also told her that I had not shared this story before then, and I would really like to know beforehand if they are really interested because there is no point wasting my time writing the article if they will not publish it.
She assured me that they are very interested. I told her based on my estimate, the article will be between 2500 words to 3,000 words. I did this because I could see on their website they had short articles. She said that I should be as thorough as possible and not to worry about the word count.
So I proceeded to write the article which ended up being 3500 words. Then when I finished I contacted the lady asking her how to submit my finished article.
She Told Me My Article Will Be Published The Following Day
She gave me an email address and told me to submit it in word format, I submitted it and she told me that she has looked at it, and she assured me that the article will be published on their website the following day.
That was in December, we are now in February, she never got back to me and I kept checking their website to see if my article will be there and every time I checked it was not there, yet there were other new articles published.
I felt so angry so I created a Siterubix site and Published the article because I felt that it's not fair for my time to be wasted like that.
I know I could have searched for other websites that cover such topics but I really didn't feel like doing that. Now I have a problem because, I really don't know what to do with that SiteRubix site I created because the topic is rather painful and I don't want to keep creating articles around it.
Maybe They Felt I Was Not Sending The Message Of Faith?
I think they did not publish my article because their website is a religious site and the way I told my story I did not touch on holding on to hope and faith, instead I rather talked about accepting that sometimes things don't always work out how we planned and that is OK too.
That we might not get what we prayed for and it's OK, to move on and find other things that bring us joy. I also stated that I have put that part of my life to rest and I have given up of that dream and I am focusing on other things that are also important in my life.
Well, I just wanted to share this with you guys. If you have suggestion about my SiteRubix website, please feel free to leave me a comment below. Or maybe I could just make it into a freestyle website where I share whatever comes to mind.
Question is will I ever get ranked? The website is already indexed in Google, I have not submitted it to Bing yet.
Anyway, thank you for your time and your comments.
