Although I had written articles in the same niche, these weren't just repeats of what I had said before. It presented the material in a unique way and from a new angle.
I'm waiting on their support to get back to me. Yesterday this happened twice and support then reviewed them and accepted them. However, it takes a long time now for the initial review and a long time after for support to respond (and I do pay the fee to be a premium member)
I imagine this is just a case of reviewers being overly strict and looking for articles to reject since the changes, but it is frustrating. I "get" what kind of material they are trying to avoid, and I'm confident that what I produce delivers quality content.
Curious what other people have experienced?
