benzinha - I don't know if I will ever get serious about submitting

articles.

It just seems like such a losing game, at least for me. When the rewards are so meagre and then on top of that, authors are subject to the whims of editors, it just isn't my style. Lining up to work for nothing and having some snot nosed kid tell me my stuff isn't good enough is simply something I don't have to put myself through. I can make substantially more money and find greater satisfaction in writing commercial copy for product listings and information websites.

editors, vogue was wondering about them the other day.........

who knows what they chose and reject or why. Possibly, a new editor was hired and had a moment to go through lots of old and two year old submissions, maybe, quizas, talvez, perhaps??

And as for Bhaskar.........much too good a writer for the general public. HA!

Never give up and I will never give up cheering for all who submit articles, as I never do.

Bhaskar.ing - Re: Congrats gomedome
I wonder why that is? My articles (I posted 2 with them) weren't perfect and both were short, generic pieces that anyone could write.

Congrats gomedome
I have not been able to sell one until now in Constant Content. They would reject me on grammatical, errors of phrasing, too philosophical, and the like. In fact I'm surprised that they didn't find even one correct!

Thank you but I thought it was rather funny that it took me two years to sell an article.
