August 31 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings, editors! We are heading into September. This traditionally is when our visitors come back from vacation and the beach and start using our site and forums more heavily! This is great news!

To celebrate, I'm going to run a forum contest for editors for the month of September. The top two editor posters across the month of September will earn a $50 Amazon gift certificate. In addition, every editor who posts more than 30 posts in that time span will be eligible for a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift certificate. That way everyone who plays has a chance!

For the top posters, that information can be tracked by the "top poster" box in the left margin of the forum page. Don't worry about what it says right now! That of course is for August. All that matters is what it says when we hit the end of September 30th.

Good luck!


Our first May winner is Gary Eggleston, our Stamps editor! Gary has been with us since April 2009 and provides fantastic information on the fun of stamp collecting. Often he writes multiple articles in a given week! There is everything from how to get started to earning money with stamps. I was just working on my Christmas stamp collection last night, and Gary's site is a great help to me!


Our second winner in May is Rebecca Graf, our History editor! Rebecca has written with us since October 2009. She is brilliant at covering a wide range of information - from book reviews about the crusades to the background of the US flag and more. Take a look at her Crusades book review - it is a great example of how to do a book review well! She covers the pros and cons of the book, and has the FTC disclaimer at the bottom!



Gary and Rebecca, please write me with what email address you'd like me to send your $50 gift certificate to, for your weekly (and more!!) writing from February through April!


We had an awesome Green Chat last week, and the Green Team is busy reviewing the ebook we assembled as a result. If you'd like to join our Green Team and help with this fun project, let me know!
