How to submit a story for Boing Boing
To make it easier for us to track each idea or submission as it comes in, please post your ideas and/or write-ups as new discussions in the Boing Boing story ideas forum. I think that will also make it easier to tell which comments go with which stories.
For full write-ups, you can also email them to me at jlevine [at] ala.org or to Tina Coleman at ccoleman [at] ala.org.
Here's the template for what we need as a write-up that can be submitted directly to Boing Boing.
- Title (preferably something that will appeal to Boing Boing's Happy Mutants and isn't just a press release headline)
- Content of the post - don't forget to include any URLs that should be embedded in the text
- URLs of any media to be included (pictures, video, etc.) or you can attach files to the Connect discussion
- Byline as "Firstname Lastname, Organizational Affiliation" with a URL for the organization's website (or however else the person should be identified); eg: Jane Doe, Awesome (IL) Public Library
Note that our preference would be to have someone from the owning library do the write-up and include a link to a page on the library's site so that they get the full credit and traffic, but we're also happy to take submissions from anyone who is passionate about an idea.
Thanks, everyone - keep the ideas coming!
