InfoBarrel February 2013 Editorial Calendar

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 6 1

If you would like to submit an article on one of the following topics to be considered as a piece of featured content on the front page of InfoBarrel, please click here. (Submissions will open Jan 1st, 2012)

To try and make the best possible experience for readers, we may edit any article that is submitted to the editorial calendar.  Common edits will be to fix punctuation, spelling and spacing, or to add headings or pictures.

Tips to get Featured

Include Pictures

Include high quality pictures in your article.  You can always use Wikipedia (creative common images) and or Morguefile to get royalty free pictures, just make sure you properly credit them.  Without pictures in your article, the chances of getting featured are significantly lower.

Citations

While citations are not required, we will lean more towards articles with citations where applicable.  This improves article credibility

Attractive Formatting

When appropriate use headings, and break your article up into digestible chunks.  If you are writing a top list, include matching widths to make everything look uniform. 

Add Maps

Maps are our latest article element and are a great way to illustrate where certain landmarks can be located and are especially beneficial when describing locations.

Entertaining/Resourceful

Your article should provide value to the end user. At the end of the day, try to make the article entertaining to read while being as resourceful as possible

Hi Admin,

I usually like to print out the editorial calendar and scribble ideas for articles as they come into my head.

I was wondering how hard would it be to add a download.csv link to the editorial calendars, this way I could download the list onto my tablet and carry it with me wherever I go, rather than needing to carry a piece of old fashioned paper and pen.

Just a thought, what do you think?

Thanks,
Chris
