Whoa, 2014, right? Seems like every day something big happens. Like, marijuana is legal in Colorado, or horses are all of a sudden equipped to jump over fallen logs (crazy), or The Biggest Loser makes me cry. I have the flu, so this seems like the perfect time to talk about the future of the Other Otter.
As our subscribers may have noticed, we have been EXCEPTIONALLY LAZY these past few months. Call it holiday brain weight, or something smarter and snappier. The point is, we definitely want to kick it up a notch this year and get back to what made this website “pretty fun to read” (-my grandmother).
We have always accepted submissions from the masses, and will continue to do so. However, because we reserve the right to reject things (for some reason or another that we typically tell you in our responses), we haven’t been publishing daily. From here on out, we’re just going to publish things we really, really like. This hasn’t changed since the beginning of the site, but it will explain why I won’t send frantic emails to my friends and fellow editors about how I need them to write something ASAP. Let’s let the work trickle in when the inspiration hits.
SO! Submit! We need great pieces, and I’m kind of into the idea of putting together an e-book of the most popular/fun/ridiculous pieces by the end of the year. I think that could be fun, and lord knows my family would love to receive matching e-books for Christmas.
