A Note to Contributors

I will admit that my last semester, which in the end, I was up to my usual standards, really kicked my ass.

Here on The Bipolar Writer blog, I have let things slide, and I am writing to my contributors in hopes to do some house cleaning this week that I am off before I start my next semester. I have been missing a lot of things because I am barely on or have time to write a blog post. I am either writing or working on my school work. I will try and be more on keeping things tidier here on the blog. Here are some things that I would like to clean up my fellow contributors.

  1. Issues with leaving posts in drafts: I understand that sometimes you start to write a blog post, and you lose your thought you think, “I will come back later.” Maybe you scrap the idea, and I understand, but too many drafts from people dating back to May. From here on out if a post is in the drafts for more than two weeks, it will be deleted. I don’t have time always to be going to drafts to check to see if you’re ready to post. Not all contributors can post, so I need to spend less time looking through posts.
  2. If your post is ready to publish, please give 2-3 days minimum and max between when you’re going to publish. If you’re a contributor that can’t post their own, please put your post into a pending review, so I know its ready to be published.
  3. Please put at least one picture in the “set feature image” section of the document. Most are doing a great job, but I like the site to be clean, and when you fail to put a picture in that section, it will show up as blank on the website.
  4. Two Post a Month minimum, I understand we all have busy schedules, but I get people every day asking to contribute, and I need to make room. If you have not posted since May and don’t schedule a post at least one post by the end the week, I will be deleting you. I am all for writing more than two posts, but in four weeks it is not a lot to ask for two posts, and it was a requirement when I added you. Many people want to share their stories here on the blog.

I ask these things to make it easier and for the flow of the website to be flawless so that people can get to know us in a fashionable order. If needed I will change schedule times for blog posts (only if needed when too many people schedule on a single day.) I want this blog to be a place where we can share our stories and there is a real possibility that I will be walking away in January, so I am hoping to find someone that is willing to take over!

If for any reason you can’t contribute, like your mental health or personal reasons, please just email me so I know where your at, I understand the struggle is real! Much love.

Always Keep Fighting

James

  1. Sounds like you have just been overwhelmed. Hope things can calm down for you. It can be hard to juggle so many things at once. I admire that you continue to try.
