November 2018 we put in place the Outside Edge ‘blog’ with many of the contributing editors throwing in a post - on one of the six OE themes - to seed the launch. Outside Edge acquires new posts each week from one or more of the contributing editors.
With the launch of Outside Edge ‘blog’ the Newslegion site also published contact and submission forms, the former a website staple, the latter intended to offer (alongside direct e-mail attachments) a way for site visitors (i.e. non contributing editors) to send their own original content to us, to be considered for inclusion on the site or placed in the “searching editor collaborator” pool or pasted onto the round table, to be read, critiqued, lampooned or lauded by the contributing editors.
Mid-November 2018 we added crosslinks to the standard social media with public posts i.e. those to Outside Edge ‘blog’ mirrored across select services like Facebook, Twitter, Medium et al.
Final preparations for the Newslegion public services - editing, collaboration, publicity, liason, advice, critique, proofing - started to be finalised during November 2018. The goal being a gentle launch January 1st 2019.
