Confidence Restored a Bit

I did not write today. I tried another content writing site and somehow failed their test. They would not say why. Strange really, as I was pretty sure I had the answers right and I have a very good English degree.

However, yet again the fear of writing failure crept in.

I used to be so very confident. I think the problem is still that with content writing someome else is your judge.

Then late into the evening emails began to arrive "Article accepted." One after another.

The pay is way out of proportion to the time spent, but it helps. I have learned about subjects I would not have thought about writing about. I feel better now.

Tomorrow I wiĺl begin again. Perhaps I can do this after all. The site that rejected me lost out.

I cannot use the article that got rejected yesterday, but I looked at it again. It is well written. Someone lost out and it was not me.

I want to write again now. I got my confidence back, a bit; anyway.

Do you mean the pay was out of proportion 1. in being overly high, or 2. in being overly low?

Good for you! Never ever be dependent on the approval of others. it will not end well.

You are always going to run into rejection sometimes. Just move on. Like you said, they lost out.

Glad to see your confidence is getting restored.The problem with some sites is not whether what you write is good or bad but whether some one likes it or not.So just move on.

Good you got your confidence back. I don't fare well with content "farms" as I'm rather a non-conformist, one who likes to write what I want to write, how I want to write it, and when I want to write it!

May I ask the names of some of the content writing sites you have been looking into. Other than Hubpages, I haven't auditioned for any.

Having some rejections can be a challenge for one to strive more and succeed.

You do not have to be bad to be rejected. They have reasons why they do it and your articles may not be the reason. Anyway happy that you had good news from other sites.
