BE HEARD ‚Äď DON‚ÄôT BE PART OF THE HERD
PEACEBURGH DESIRES YOUR VOICE TO BE HEARD!
We really want ¬†your submissions for posts from you and other Peaceburghers!
What appears on the official Peaceburgh dot com site on Peaceburgh will also go on the Peaceburgh facebook page.¬† ¬†¬† ¬† ¬†No one with a facebook business page is happy about all the money Facebook is charging to get your post seen. ¬†You would have to ask Tamar¬† how to pay into a paypal account to reach that many people for your event or marketing of your business.
General guidelines for post submissions:
- Any topic can be explored as long as you explain how your chosen subject raises the consciousness of other Peaceburghers, and/or how you benefited from knowing or doing what you‚Äôre writing about.
- When you are submitting a post, please do not advertise products or businesses ‚Äď unless they fit beautifully into the post. ¬†If you want your product/business to be seen, we encourage you to buy ad space on the site; ¬†please contact Tamar George ¬†at her dot com.¬† Lot’s of links on her ads on side bar.¬† Sorry for the extra steps to get to us. ¬†But the spam was overwhelming.
- The post has to be original and personalized. ¬†Re-posts of your own material from other internet sites are welcomed.
- Yinz have to be from the Pittsburgh vicinity.
Submitting a post to be considered for publication:
- Send a personal email (with potential ‚Äėpost‚Äô) to Tamar George.¬† ¬† Your email will be submitted to the other team editors. ¬†You might ¬†briefly explain why you think you think your post is a good fit for Peaceburgh.com.
- Include your name, email and website at bottom of your post.¬† Please mention where in the Pittsburgh area you live.
- You can suggest things in your email, but don’t ask for anything that requires us to do extra work. ¬†We simply don‚Äôt have the time to create artwork, extensively edit your article, etc.
- If your post is time sensitive, let us know early in your email.
- If it‚Äôs been published elsewhere, let us know.¬† Re-publication of your own work is OK with us, subject to any copyright restrictions on your earlier publication.
- If you want us to help publicize an event, please provide us with a way to contact someone responsible for that event (so that we can obtain their permission).
- If you want to recommend an external article, post, etc. to our readers, the best way to do so is to write a post telling the readers why they would/should be interested in reading that item, and then including a link to the external web page.
- If the Peaceburgh editorial team thinks your submission is a great fit for our blog it will be gotten to.¬† The editing staff at Peaceburgh are volunteers, and will work on your post as their free time allows.
- Do NOT send Microsoft Word documents or PDFs for your potential posts.¬† Everything should be in your email, ready for ‘copy and paste’.
- Your post is more likely to get published when it has an image. ¬†We need one full-width image which the editing staff will insert in your post. ¬†
- Ask for a free¬†image or submit one image size 615px wide x 461px height is ideal for clarity.¬† Do not enclose more than 2 images in the same email.¬† Please note in your email where you got the image.¬† (For example, was it off a website that lets you have free images because you‚Äôre a member?) ¬†Explain in detail, and include any required image credit acknowledgements and copyright restrictions.
- Don’t take it personally if you don’t hear back quickly. ¬†If you are confident that your submission would be a perfect match, you could potentially resend your email with a nice ¬†note saying ‘just in case you might not have seen this the first time’. ¬†But do not resend more than twice.
