Submitted An Article to be Published
I submitted a fitness/health article to muscle & strength (popular fitness site and supplement store) and they got back with me the other day and said they would be interested in publishing my article — which is very exciting & a huge deal because they are highly recognized & a huge step in my fitness career as a writer and personal trainer! so #crossedfingers all goes well and if so, they will add it to their content queue and have it published. When it does get published, I plan on sharing it with all of you, so everyone can read it!
My editor has published my article on his site officially. I would appreciate the feedback and to share it among your social media sites. I think it is a wonderful article.
I will need your help.
Random post? I know, it is 8 at night, I had nothing better to do, just kidding. I wanted to see before I go about researching this, if I had any followers, or followers who have followers who have a degree in nutrition, preferably someone knowledgeable and works in their profession. If you are someone or know someone that I can speak with, it would be a great help. Why? Well because my next article is due the 27th and I want to “interview” a registered dietitian or nutritionist with their degree or certification possibly (preferably degree) but I will consider certification. I don’t mean “interview” as in ask you questions about yourself, but questions pertaining to my topic that I need to write about (which I will not share with everyone until it is published) will share it with the person I interview. I will cite whatever information you give me as your own words, and make mention of you in the article because that is part of using a source (the same way I did in my article when I had my professor speak on the topic of plyometrics from his own perspective) – I quoted him and stated his credentials (degrees and certs).
If you would be interested, please email me or get leave a comment and we can discuss the details. P.S the interview will be conducted via email to keep it private. Thank you.
Hello Fellow Bloggers,
I have some good news to share with all of you today. I wanted to announce that I have got in contact with the Editor in Chief of “Muscle & Fitness” Magazine on twitter, asking him if they were interested in having a writer for their magazine and he ended up sending me a private message back on twitter, asking that I send him a “pitch” to be considered for the job/article. I am very honored and over joyed, but I am very nervous and anxious, I have never had to send someone a “pitch” before and I was at work getting this news, so it was hard to focus on work when I was deciding what topic to talk about. Nonetheless, I found the topic that I want to pitch to him about and I am hoping I get a chance to write for this magazine, because it would truly be a dream come true. It could be the break I need, the highlight of my year, it could go either way; I could get the job and write an article or I could flop and have to savage what would be left of my self confidence and dignity. I will not lie when I say I am very, very, very, very, scared. As of now I will be doing my homework on writing a “good” pitch and provide him with my pitch before I go to bed, wish me luck, I am going to need it. Worse case scenario, I tried, right?!
