Yes, the publishing problems are back. I have 8 articles that are "Unavailable" and 6 of them were submitted on 3/17/10. There are many postings about this issue in the ehow forums. Many writers have decided to hold-off writing anymore articles until this issue is resolved. However, I'm going back to my previous approach of writing my articles in Google Docs. Once the problem clears up, I'll submit these articles.
As of today, I'm 50 days into my challenge (half-way through) and I've written 44 articles. I should be caught-up by this time next week to the article a day pace.
44 articles down and 56 to go. I'm almost over the half-way hump.
