Hello, I am brand new to Wizzley and working hard to learn the ropes. I created my first article and hit publish, fully expecting it to go on hold to be moderated.

I thought I'd read that all articles have to be approved for quality so it surprised me to see it live right away. Maybe someone can explain to me what to expect. Thanks.

Hello AA, and welcome to Wizzley!

The first 5 articles of a new author go "live", but they can't be indexed by Google until approved by a Wizzley admin. Usually, this happens within 1 - 48 hours. (Yours has been approved.)

After you have published 5 approved articles, you become a "trusted user" and your content goes live (and indexable) immediately upon publishing.

Your first article is great and inspiring, but---IMHO---too long. You might lose readers halfway through the story. And please check for unintended line breaks in your copy.

Best regards,

Chef Keem (Team Wizzley)

Thanks for explaining that, and for the tip. I'll go back and do some cutting.

Welcome Art-Aspirations.

I just popped over to your Wizzley  and foud it very interesting. I would suggest uploading at least a thumbnail image so it will look better in the listings. And don't forget you can use your Flicker capsule to add some photograhps. (You didn't ask for a crtique, so I hope you don't think I'm being a budinsky.)

I appreciate the input. I have a lot to learn and critiques are definitely welcome, so thank you. I will work on your suggestions.

One question - do you see a thumbnail for the page? I can see one on my feed, but not sure what others can see.

Look at your profile page to see your thumbnails.

If you want to see what others see, simply log out of your account and then look again.  Smile
