InfoBarrel March 2012 Editorial Calendar

By Edited Jan 7, 2016 5 15

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 February 1st, 2012)

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.


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.


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

For more information on formatting your article to increase your chances of being featured, check out the Anatomy of Viral Content article.

Quick newbie question...in the intro to the editorial calendar it says: "Bolded entries are topics that have very few or even zero submissions"

With all of the topics still in bold, does that mean that there have been few to zero submissions for all the titles on this March's editorial calendar or do you update this list closer to the end of the month? I know I've seen some pretty interesting articles published by IB community on a lot of these topics and was starting to get curious where there might be topics that haven't really been covered.

Can we submit to more than one?

Also what is the last date to submit to these?
Feb 21, 2012 12:46pm
Having trouble submitting an article for the March contest. Drop-down list to select an article doesn't appear.

How do you check the index to see if your article was chosen for a feature?

JediEditor: You don't know when you are chosen, until you see your article on the front page or notice the wild traffic. Forget it and you may get a nice surprise :)
