Update for 2016 – the submit link function is now closed for the time being.
Why am I doing this?
Well, for three main four reasons:
1. It benefits my readers. When people who read my blog also submit their own posts (those who blog, that is), it helps build a design community.
2. It benefits those who submit their posts. Obviously, it can benefit their sites via page-views and backlinks.
3. It benefits my site. Articles are listed on the main page, with sub-pages also linking to users’ articles. This should be good for SEO.
UPDATE: 4. Newsletter signup. I’ve just added the facility to tick a box if the user wants to receive my upcoming newsletter in the future (when I get around to writing one, that is).
I’ve noticed the popularity of blogs and online magazines that list design links over the past year, so I’ll give it a shot here and see how it goes!
The submit buttons are located in the left sidebar and header link-bar. The actual news page can be accessed in the left sidebar, too…
