First, the Recap
Wow. Things are really moving along with the new site. I am going to publish this post in both WritingForTheEducationMarket.com and educationwriting.blogspot.com so that it's part of the new blog history but everyone on the yet-to-be-moved-over email list will receive it in their email from the old blog. All this will get cleaned up soon. I was able to get some advice on moving the list over.
I'm getting some recurring questions, so I am going to address some of them here. I'll set up an FAQ page on the new site soon (after the email list move).
- The new website address is WritingForTheEducationMarket.com
- The old blog address is educationwriting.blogspot.com.
- The old blog address is where you have been receiving emails from Writing for the Education Market.
- This will be changing very soon, so you need to
- read all then WEM emails or blog posts from last week and this week to stay updated on the move
- go to the Writers page on the new site and Join the List (I've had 46 new writers join since Sunday noon)
- Check the job board on your own until I can get the email thing sorted out (HINT: There is already a job posted there!)
- You can't edit your profile (yet), so if you need to change something, fill out the form again and then email me at Laura@WritingForTheEducationMarket.com and let me know to delete your other one.
Moving Right Along
First, I got to meet Laura Bresko at ISTE today! Yay! Laura's been a subscriber from the beginning and hires writers through WEM. It was a pleasure to be able to talk to her in person. Laura also introduced me to someone who could help spread the word about WEM. It was exciting!
Then, I stopped by Gale Group booth in the expo hall and the person in charge of content development was super excited to hear about our community. That was a great feeling. So tomorrow, I plan to stop at a few more places to see if I can make some connections.
If you know of someone who hires freelance writers, perhaps you'd be willing to send me their contact info. Those folks know others of their ilk and I bet we could get it moving along at a fast clip just by being social.
- Move the email list over
- Figure out how to let writers edit their own profiles
- Notify all the folks who link to the blog of the new address
- Close down the educationwriting.blogpost.com site
