Nice! I actually intended to interview you as well. :) But somehow
slipped through my fingers!
I'm sure we will have another opportunity in the future. :)
I intended to post articles like the example I posted in the email
thread. Short and simple. I'll draft them first though, of course, and
if anyone has suggestions for how to improve them I'm more than happy
to take the edit advice. I'm new to this, so I have lots to learn.
This page https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/writing-community-blog-article/
seems pretty helpful though to get things started!
I'm not posting these anywhere else but here. Fedora Community Blog
get's the exclusive! :)
We'd definitely love to have the articles. :) The page does a good job
of breaking down the process, but it does need some updating. Feel free
to add a draft at your own leisure, and when you're ready for it to hit
the press, set it to "pending review" and let us know on the mailing
list that it's ready to go out.
If you want to publish the podcast in synchronization with the CommBlog
article, I'm sure we can arrange that too.
I verified I'm able to log in to the blog and draft posts.
I'll be on
vacation all next week, so if I don't get one or two of the first
interviews posted by tomorrow, I'll start adding them the following
No worries about the delay; since I've joined the mailing list I noted
that you're quite a busy guy!
Keep up the great work! Talk to you again soon!
Awesome! If you need anything else, let us know. We're happy to help. :)
