Of the 8 stories I've submitted since I started doing that, I believe 7 were good, solid stories, with at least 4 well-deserving front-page shots. 3 were posted several hours or days after I submitted. I'm not so much complaining about the rejected stories, as I'm asking whether or not I should continue taking the time to submit them.

Are there just so many people submitting stories that I need not bother?

  • You have to make your news marketable man! Make sure your headlines use wordplay, be witty, and don't forget to add a snide little remark at the end!

    Do whatever it takes to pump up the banner impressions or you'll be rejected!

    Only half joking. :-)
