The Return of BYB!
View this email in your browser
Hi BYBers!

Thanks so much for all the well wishes and kind notes many of you sent when I announced my indefinite hiatus several months ago.

After several months off, I have had time to figure out where I want to take BYB in the future and have re-set a more a sustainable work load.

By the way, I highly recommend indefinite time off! It does wonders for burn out :o)

Here are the highlights of what will be happening over the next few months.

** In October, 2016, I will re-launch Beyond Your Blog with a redesigned website. In the meantime, the old site might look a bit tired as most of my time will be spent updating the new site. 

** Facebook Group - The Beyond Your Bloggers Facebook Group will stay pretty much the same. I will still be reading threads for approval and will comment where I can, but I won't be commenting and following comments on every thread as I once was.

** New Content on - I am scaling back the amount of content I publish on BYB and will be publishing about 6 new pieces each month. These will include interviews with editors (written), pieces written by BYB/Me, and articles from contributors. I will be paying more for contributor articles but publishing less of them. Check out our submission guidelines for more details - submissions are now open!

** Podcasts - Due to the huge amount of time needed to produce each episode, I am no longer going to be doing a weekly podcast. Instead, I will be sharing editor interviews via written articles several times a month.

** Hall of Fame - This contest for the top articles published on sites other than your personal blog will now be held twice a year instead of monthly. Contest entries will be opened in December (with January winner announcements) and June (with July announcements). We will have a judge for each category so more submissions can be allowed. Stay tuned for more details.

** Submission Savvy - My e-course for bloggers and writers new to submitting their work for publication will re-open for new registrants before 2017. Those who have already purchased will have access to any updated course modules through their course interface. Sign up for announcements here:

** Newsletters - I will be picking back up with newsletters every other week (previously weekly) coinciding with the site re-launch in October. I will be opening up ad space in the newsletters for anyone interested (limited to ads that will be of of specific interest to my targeted audience). Contact for pricing and details.

** Services - I have re-opened my consulting business and am now limiting myself to 1 consulting engagement per week. For those of you who wish to hop in the queue before I have a backlog, you can do so here.

Please feel free to email me with any questions! I am excited to get back into the swing of things!
