Are you listening?
I am branching out and looking for a few people to grow with me. Are you one of the few that is up to the challenge? This is not a “writing” challenge. Instead I am giving you the opportunity to promote yourself — your own blog /writing, as well as others who write and support truth in reporting.
“Huh?” You Say
Although I will continue to faithfully maintain Cheri Speak, I will also maintain and promote a daily paper.li electronic newspaper that I have created and aptly named, Today’s Times. It can be found at www.TodaysTimes.org and the mirror FaceBook page is here (I will add other social media over the next week or so).
So, What’s It All About?
We live in a tightly controlled world of media and government propaganda. Currently our closest allies are each other by way of the internet. Many of us comb social media for relevant [and truthful] news. It is hard to keep up with everything going on — whether you are the one who posts/shares the news or you are the one reading the news. All that surfing takes time and sadly time remains steady and stuck at the same 24-hours per day we’ve always had.
Today’s Times is the fix.
Each day a small group of individuals across the globe will add to this new and exciting news source. *See the Contributor Guidelines for the “how” of it all.
The Mission Statement:
*As the idea and paper evolve there will be additions to both the vision and mission statements.
You can be a part of it this, in fact some of you already are, but you don’t know it yet!
Play Your Part In My Evil Plan
Getting involved is super easy and takes little-to-no-time, from set-up to execution. Here are three ways YOU can jump on the bandwagon and be promoted for doing so…
Bloggers, Surfers and News Nuts:
Simply add the Today’s Times (paper li) bookmark to their toolbar; click it whenever they are on a page and an excerpt and link to the story will automatically appear in Today’s Times and be distributed with the next issue (daily). If these stories are from your own website, you will be sending traffic to your site through Today’s Times.
If you are a serious news
junkie hound and would like to cover timely and relevant news, event and people stories for Today’s Times, I will be offering official “Today’s Times” Press Passes for up to five (5) writers across the United States and up to five (5) Internationally. A minimum of one (1) piece per week is expected of “reporters”.
From the “reporters”, I am looking for original stories that are newsworthy.. Stories can be about politics, government, corporations/business, community and culture and more. Stories must be fully and thoroughly vetted and sourced. All submissions must be the writer’s original work written specifically for Today’s Times to qualify for Press Pass. Because all submissions are only submitted on your own website, the traffic from exposure being linked in Today’s Times, is all yours.
Become A Fan:
By becoming a reader aka a free subscriber to Today’s Times you help expose it to more people. You can take that further by sporting one of the official Today’s Times website badges and by sharing the site on social media.
*No poetry or fiction accepted at this time.
Are You Qualified?
Do you fit any of the above descriptive verbiage? Are you concerned about truth in media and reporting? Are you yourself committed to truth and always conscience of what you “share” with others?
Then the answer is, YES, you qualify!
Are There Requirements, Commitments or Deadlines?
Yes. The cold hard truth is real “news” is timely and has an expiration date. That doesn’t mean a news piece is unimportant, it just means in order to keep up we have to keep up.
Do You Get Paid?
Yes, in traffic and exposure.
If you are interested, please fill out the contact form below and I will get back to you within 3 business days.
