    I created a very long introduction thread, it is saying that it will not allow me to post it due to filters? I'm not selling anything, simply trying to post an introduction thread. That could potentially be beneficial to others. Is there a mod I could send the intro thread to for approval?

    Thanks

    Restrictions are cruel for the beginners. I had the same thing not with the intro thread though.

    It will be like that, until you post certain number of posts and are on the forum for 1 month. Sorry to say that, but this rule is actually good protection against spammers.

    Nothing that important, it just took me a decent time to write. It was just something I wrote over my lunch break, to potentially share and possibly benefit others.

    To sum the post. I took an entrepreneurial dive, after my 9-5 went our ways recently. My thread basically explains my experiences so far, pros and cons, and no matter what anyone thinks it still requires hard work. I also explain the mentality you have to be prepared for to survive. For anyone who is thinking of working for themselves. I have enjoyed working 25-30% hours than my 9-5 for myself, it is awesome. (I am a hard worker at heart so it comes naturally, I can barely relax on weekends) With that being said not everyone can do it, it requires a ton of self discipline, tough skin, and confidence in yourself.

    Guess this is my intro thread now? lol
    Hello BHW

    Thanks for having me. :shakehand

    PS I have launched an offline campaign related to SEO, currently I am in the process learning more towards app design and coding. I also do a little affiliate on the side and have quite the eagle eye when it comes to photoshop.

    The filters are quite restrictive when you don't have many posts. It won't allow you to post words like "free". If you have words that may usually be found in a spammy post then take them out and try posting the thread again.

    Otherwise, wait a while and post your introduction at a later date when the filters are less harsh.
