We understand it takes time and work to prepare a blog post worth reading.  Nonetheless, the fact that you have written a post and submitted it to us does not obligate us to publish it. We will only publish posts that in our sole judgement renders value to the majority of our readers.  Regrettably, we are are unable to respond to all of the email we receive.  So, if we do not approve your post for publication, we will be unable to explain why.
