Still Don’t Have a Clue?
No problem! We understand that this process can be potentially confusing.
To clarify some of this potential confusion, here’s an article that explains some further information.
Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming number of requests that we receive, we can no longer reply individually to all contributors with answers to questions such as: when your post will be published or if it’s been accepted.
However, we do have a notification system that will let you know when your article was published. If your article was moved to the trash pile, it’s for one of three common reasons: duplicate content, poor writing skills, or simply an uninformative article.
