February 1 2013 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings and Salutations -

February is here! I've just finished all the end-of-month processing. I also figured out what was up with the weekly script that calculates the articles-per-week. That chart at the bottom of your main admin page should be updating properly again. Thank you for your patience!

I'm still fighting off this flu, but I think the fog is slowly clearing. Hopefully tomorrow I can sit down and catch up a bit on things.

The Mused Literary Review deadline is coming up on Tuesday, February 5th. Be sure to get your poems, poetry, drawings, stories, and other items in by then to be considered for the upcoming Spring Equinox issue! Please let all your friends, family, and newsletter members know about this. The more submissions the merrier!


Also, we have a thread in the forums for cheerleading each other's one year goals. You can find it here -


One of my goals is to recruit new editors for some of our empty sites. Each January we go through a traditional turnover as editors reset their priorities, launch out on new projects, and achieve their dreams. This is wonderful! We have some editors who have left our nest and taken on mind-blowingly amazing jobs. We wish them the very best.

Now we have spots for fresh trainees to get the same support and help!

Our list of open sites is here -


Please take a look and see if you have any friends or family who might be interested in one of the spots. We are here to help them reach their dreams and aspirations! We'd love to talk with them.

Some of the larger sites that need editors include:

* quotations
* birding
* soap operas (or should we make this daytime tv? Do soap operas even exist any more?)
* motor sports
* floral design
* pop music
* women in music
* today in history
* orchids
* pregnancy

We're enthusiastically looking for trainees who would benefit from our warm, supportive community.

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Lisa Shea, owner
