To Our Readers—
Send us a small
...and we'll give you valuable exposure!
We're looking for more contributors of short items for MetroMac Express. We have a solid staff of heavyweight reviewers. We also have close to a thousand members and a vastly greater readership of Mac users: people with interests and talents all over the field: professional, recreational, creative, scientific, artistic, educational...you name it.
We have a deal to offer that we hope will appeal to your naked self-interest. Send us a little item, and if we use it, we'll reward you. Every letter, comment, complaint, story, challenge, argument or whatever that we publish will carry a live link of your choosing, preferably to your own website.
Through which you reach first us, then the world.
That's no exaggeration. MetroMac is a prize-winning digital publication of considerable influence. Our articles are routinely picked up by Google, Yahoo and other search engines, and posted, with links back to the authors' websites and e-mail addresses. You know the cascading impact of exposure like this. It's priceless.
Have we got your attention? If you can use more internet exposure of your service, talents, product or whatever, send an e-mail to MMXP Content Editor with your idea for a Short Piece. If you wish, we'll help you develop it. A pleasant experience will be had by all.
Staff Openings: a Wish List
We can also use help in these specialized jobs. No pay. Short hours.
Graphic Designer— Every issue uses the six to nine little rollover images that you see on the "cover" page and at the top of each article. We could use some fresh ideas. If you like designing logos, these small posters can be fun to do.
Heading and Subhead Writer—Articles come from our contributors with working titles that can usually be improved upon. We also need subheads to 1) help the story development and, 2) break up the monotony of an all-text page. A small job but a necessary one.
Web-savvy Codewriter—Once text and images are at hand, they must be converted to web-publishable form. This has been made relatively simple by our Newsletter Manager 1.0 software (see article), which takes care of basic layout needs. [I learned it and, even got to enjoy it, with absolutely no prior knowledge of, or interest in, html code—mh]. However, it has limitations, and desirable layout refinements do require the judicious use of code, We can use help here. This might take you an hour or so per issue. Wanna give it a try?
