The Hun Ponders the Ramifactions of Pushing the "Submit to Fool Editorial" Button
The past two times I have written a blog here on TMF's CAPS community, I've noticed a new little check box. It says, "Submit to Fool Editorial" button.
I was rather excited to see the button when I posted my two most recent blogs, but I admit that I have no idea what will happen if I push that button. Will a nuclear missile be launched? Will I turn into a frog? Will it catapult me to a successful invasion of Roman-occupied Ravenna? I'm not sure.
Ok, so maybe I have an idea what will happen. My question is, what kind of blogs would the Fool editorial staff consider publishing? Would be my most recent blog on sprawl, tax policies, and a post-oil age economy qualify? Would my blog on the greatness of the TI-30Xa calculator meet the standars? How 'bout my blog on the Isle of Capri Casinos *(ISLE) being a poor buy right now?
Guess I'm just curious as to what sort of content I should be submitting to the Fool.
The reason I'm excited about this is because I've always wanted to write for the Fool in some capacity. In fact, I briefly wrote for the Fool for about a month, but they had me writing the most inane, simplistic articles humanly possible, so I eventually resigned. It seemed silly to write such low-level stuff when I had a proven track record both here (via CAPS blogs and pitches) and at Seeking Alpha of writing on a much higher level.
Now maybe I have a chance to get the stuff I actually want to write published on the Fool! Or maybe not. Guess we'll see. I haven't seen any literature on this new option, so I'm just curious when I should be "checking the box" so to speak.
P.S. Wouldn't it have been awesome if I submitted my blog on the "Submit to Fool Editorial" button to the Fool editorial staff?! The Fool Editorial staff would presumably be delighted to read my posts for the rest of eternity after receiving that!
