Make sure you're using closing tags for your "self-contained" tags.

It doesn't look like you started the article tag before the <h3>Follow Me On Social Media</h3>. The tests asks you to do that for ALL h3 and p.

I tested it myself and it accepted my answer with 3 article tags

Also your aside and ul aren't nested correctly.

  1. Your closing </section> tag needs to go after the last </article>, the one closing off your last paragraph
  2. Remove that closing </section> before footer
