Hello, dear Ommies.
It is this time of the year when we are finally closing the editorial Calendar for good.
Articles posted beyond this point are going to be selected for the 2020 editions.
I would like to use this opportunity to welcome the new writers and emphasize
that you need to take a look at our submission guidelines, as I see so many people
having issues with their submissions. If you have any questions pending, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am going to point out some problems:
Articles must have 500-1200 words, no less than 500. Less than 500 words make the piece an excerpt, and it gets penalized in search engines. So you want to be seen and found, then write at least 500 words articles.
Articles can’t be more than 1200 words. The reason is that our readers are 96% using mobile devices, and they read our articles while commuting. So long articles are usually forgotten. Information nowadays is organized differently according to time.
Interviews can be extended, but even those we have a magic number. So do yourself a favor and be concise.
Please include a bio at the end of your article, 60-70 words, or 400 characters, containing two links, One for your personal website and another for social media. We ask this because you have the opportunity to give your information to a client or to a reader that may want to talk to you.
We usually also ask for an abstract that is nothing more than a brief introduction to your article. You may say what the reader may find while reading your article.
In the January edition, I would like to have suggestions from you all on the best Conscious Media Personalities of 2021. Then, we can select some personalities and put them to vote. It will be a fun thing.
Next week I will be filling the buckets for 2022. We have “magazine covers” already organized for April, so it will be easier to work out and send the editions to format.
Thank you all for being patient with me during these trying times.
I am also coming up with a new calendar of submissions. This time, I will be organizing the submissions by Trimesters.
I apologize for not migrating to the new platform just yet but I am not had good luck lately. As a result, I am exploring new alternatives for communities. This has delayed my schedule and calendar for new projects tremendously. For that, I am very sorry!
To infinity and beyond.
