InfoBarrel October 2012 Editorial Calendar

By Edited Sep 13, 2016 1 12

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 September 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.

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

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

I have'nt seen a Serial Killers topic in a wihle (I've been holding out some). Any chance of seeing another? (I think February was the last time I saw that as a specific topic delineated.)

An excellent range of topics this month. It's hard to choose which one to get started on first!

If I have an article to submit to the 'Things to do in... (a city, state, country)' category for example, do I just submit it once on any of the dates for that topic? Or do I submit the article on each of the four dates that it is listed?

Nice list for the month of October. However, it is confusing because it says, "
"The following is our list of topics being used for our editorial calendar for the month of September." Typo perhaps?

If you are featured will someone let you know or do you just need to check the days you submitted for to see if you were chosen.

Are the winners for each Feature posted anywhere? Or do we have to live with the suspense until the articles are up?

Just noticed that the days are wrong - October started on a Monday.

vincentvampire- prob just a typo.
wazhag24- for my recent feature, I just happened to see it. it's best to check in every day imo.
msazriel- like any good story, suspense is part of the equation. :)
egdcltd- good catch. lots of little mishaps here, but I think we all agree this is a great way to inspire the writer and overcome the "what do I write about?" conundrum we all face from time to time.
