Skrift presents: January's Digest

It's 2016, January's Issue No 10 went out without a hitch, so we're off with a bang. That being said, I'm sure you all know by now (have we emphasized it enough?) at Skrift, our focus is community. It's not just a buzz-word, but how we all feel about it. While communities grown and improve with each person building up each other, they also improve by each member building up themselves. So I say ... let's take a moment to be just a little selfish, shall we?

I'll start. I want you to write for us. I want you to help us help you. And while yes, I want you to do it for the community, I also want you to do it for you. Because writing for Skrift is just as good for you as it is for everyone else, and here's why:

  1. You are an internationally published author. Skrift isn't just "another blog on the internet." We're an online magazine with an ISSN number, which means that as one of our authors, you are officially printed in a publication. Which means...
  2. You have greater recognition in your field. We all build friends, colleagues, and acquaintances in our community, but by putting yourself out there, you get greater recognition for your ideas and experiences, which makes you an expert. This leads to ...
  3. Helping you land your next contract, client, raise, or job. By having Skrift on your resume, you can help push your next raise to your boss, help land that next big contract, or have a nice shiny badge when interviewing for your next job. It's a mark on your bucket list, a sign of prestige, and a gold star in the Umbraco community.

Write for Skrift. Write for us. Write for the community. Write for you.
