How to submit to the blog

To get something posted on The B-Town Blog, please follow these simple instructions:

HAVE A STORY IDEA OR NEWS TIP?

DO:

  • Send your words as plain text within an email or as an attached text file.
  • Send PDFs or .jpegs of posters, artwork, etc.

DO NOT:

  • Please do NOT send a Word doc with everything formatted like you think it will appear on the blog (i.e.: with bold/italic or embedded photos). We don’t work well with Word docs anymore, and it’s a big hassle to export everything properly for our website..
  • Please do NOT embed photos within a Word document (oops, we said that already didn’t we?).
  • Please do NOT email us Publisher files as we’re Mac-based and can’t read them (we can read PDF files though, but please make sure they allow copy & pasting of text – test it first!).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:

  • We are currently revisiting how best to post Letters to the Editor. In the past we feel that certain groups have tried to “hijack” our blog to share their opinions. We currently carefully review and decide – at our discretion – which letters to post. NOTE: This means we don’t post every single Letter to the Editor we receive.

HOW TO REPAY US FOR HELPING YOU:

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at (206) 248-2565 or email [email protected]. Please note that we receive a LOT of emails everyday; if we don’t respond right away it’s not that we’re ignoring you – it’s more likely that we’ve overlooked it!
