I’m very pleased with the work that I’ve seen here in a short time! Some of you are, no doubt, interested in having your work promoted to the main page. When I see something promising I’ll figure out what needs to change to get promoted, and with your permission I’ll make the edits live right on Page 2, and promote after your final agreement that it’s still in your voice.
Two other things:
- The Guest Post Guidelines remain an excellent resource for writing style and content that STB is likely to showcase. Basic English composition skills always help; if this is not your strong suit, feel free to put stuff in draft and I can take a look at it (if you’re targeting an STB main page post).
- Our policy on main page posts remains real names for authors. If it really isn’t a big difference to you, using your real name in your byline is one less step between Page 2 and Page 1. So feel free to switch your byline to your real name if you’re so inclined.
Note also that although we’re not going host your media, you’re strongly encouraged to embed images and video of your own, or from the public domain. Our Flickr pool and wikimedia are good sources for images to spice up a post.
If you are more than happy to remain on Page 2 that’s great as well.
