C4SS Media Coordinator Update, 09/30/11

Dear C4SS Supporters,

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get an analytical grip on what works and what doesn’t. After last week’s uptick, it’s been another slow week for Center Op-Eds, with only two “pickups” — “Back Room Deals Revealed,” by David D’Amato, and “Emancipate Yourselves from Mental Slavery,” by Kevin Carson, both in the Carroll County, Maryland Standard.

Part of the reason for that is that the past week’s submissions (9,020 of them) have all been to domestic US publications (1,805 of them), as opposed to worldwide (which would rack up another 1,000 possible publishers per piece). That’s just the nature of the content: This week it’s been “US-centric.”

I suspect another part of the reason has to do with topic selection — we may have wandered off the topical path that the “mainstream media” is interested in covering.

Looking at the last 24-48 hours of the news cycle, I suspect that the next week’s content will be both more globally submission-worthy and more exciting to the target publications. It definitely remains an experimental process. Thanks for staying in the lab with us, and have a great weekend!

Yours in liberty,
