Paying Markets

Paying markets for Content Managers/ Experts. You must apply for these positions. Please visit each site to apply. Some sites will allow you to have more than 1 site that you are an expert or content manager of. Make sure you read all terms of Agreement and Guidelines before accepting any positions. Some require you to do a lot of work other than writing, such as monitoring the message boards, newsletters and more on specific deadlines (this can be very time consuming for the amount of pay).

Submission Stats: 

Article Length:     500-2500 words. Please contact us if you think you will be going over the article limit. If you do, we will suggest making it a 2 or 3 Part Series.

Column Length & Format:     350-3500 words. Please contact us if you think you will be going over the limit. Please see the formats of the columns. We can spilt up large pieces too. Keep the pieces to minimum of space, 1 space between items such as paragraphs and sentences. There are still Columns available!! Please submit your guidelines quickly to put the final claim on columns. We will not give out columns to those who do not submit their guidelines. Click Here for the list of Column Ideas and then use your Back button on your browser to return here!

Columnists:   Writer's who are columnists need to have to have their work done in a timely manner. We need all deadlines to be met, unless you let the Editor know why you can't make a particular deadline. This way we can get a filler or put the appropriate message in the blank column for our readers. If you choose to stop being a regular weekly columnist, we need 2-3 weeks notice so that we can try to replace you. Take a look at our list of subjects for an idea of what columns are available. If you are unsure of anything, just ask and if you need guidance on columns, please take a look at our present columnists as they have things down to a good pattern! If you require an email address for your column, please let the Editor know, because we have guidelines for this an we will require you to sign up with our FREE email service that can be found on the Get Interactive page. We do not publish the email address in your column unless there is good cause for it. Getting reader feedback will come to Child Care Magazine.  All links or books from the article need to be listed in a separate list at the bottom of the article titled "Resources" or "Links". This is for faster access for our readers to the links or ebooks you suggest. (The Editors do not have the time to do this for you every week).

Deadlines:     Deadlines are on every Thursday, anytime up till midnight! Each Issue is due out 2-3 weeks after the submission date on a Monday (Issues can take the Editor sometime, so please be patient). If you need an extension, please let the Editor know ahead of time! Each writer is responsible for getting their 3 column  submissions or freelance article submitted before or on time. Deadlines for the article being published are the Thursday 2-3 weeks before the Issue goes live; however, one can send in 4-5 articles ahead of time for the entire month if needed (for example, if you are going out of town). If sending more than one article, please make sure they are in a separate email for each article. Please title your subject heading also with the "date of the submission, CCM, and the column name or 'freelance'".

Bio Length:     250 words maximum, 2 links, and 1 contact email address. You may also send in a small photo of yourself to be embedded in your article and/or bio. All this is optional and you are responsible for your own Bio content. We do not suggest using home email addresses and we do not suggest listing your physical address. If you do not have an email account already, an excellent place to apply for one is www.Eudoramail.com. They have excellent filtering in place to get rid of spammers, flamers, and junk mail. Other accounts people may use are yahoo.com or hotmail.com.

Rules:     Articles, Tips, and all submissions must pertain to the theme of "Child Care".  The Editor is willing to help with ideas on stories, articles, or tips. If you have any questions,  please feel FREE to ask. No explicit remarks, swearing, foul language, pornography, and any of the like will not be tolerated or published. This also applies to all Bio's as well. No bad mouthing anyone or anything! We will NOT tolerate any plagiarized articles. Articles will be removed immediately and there are no exceptions to this rule!
