I think the main thing I and a lot of people felt about your articles last week can be summed up pretty simply: they looked very low-effort. They frequently went up with confusing phrasing and loads of typos and the subject matter was incredibly simple compared to the longer, well-researched articles you tend to put up. Sure, some of them had interesting subject matter, but they could've been presented with more information (there's been many good articles in the past about how other companies have dealt positively or humorously with pirates and having overview of those would've been a nice addition) and/or have just been better put-together. Hopefully you take this into mind!
This 100%. You've put out some great work but last week's just felt a little lazy in places. Keep trying new stuff though, better to do things wrong a bit than be stagnant.
