If you go to Hubpages and post an item, if your images are not considered large enough, you work is ‘non-featured’.
You wrote something. You are a writer. But Your writing is not what you are being ‘judged’ on. Your ability to find an image on the web that takes up the margins is.
I know this sounds insane, but it is true.Your ‘writing’ on Hubpages is ‘judged’ by the size of the image you copy and paste in the article.
You don’t believe me? Neither did a famous writer, this is a man who lives off his short stories. To prove/disprove what I wrote he joined Hubpages under a pseudonym and published a short story. He used an image which was a bit small.
His work was non-featured. His writing was ‘non-featured’ because the image he’d copied and pasted was too small. As ‘non-featured’ no one could see his story.
In online discussions he, and others, expressed shock that a writer is not judged on his or her writing but on the size of the cut and pasted image.
When an item is ‘non-featured’ on Hubpages, no one can see it.
The famous author didn’t bother delete his ‘non-featured’ story; he published it in a hard copy magazine.
This is not fiction.
You want your work ‘featured’ on Hubpages? Find four images which fill the space; margin to margin. In between these images, write rubbish.
You’ll be featured because there are no human moderators.
