Our team is so grateful for all of your support. Let’s take a look at how our fourth week unfolded–we’ll start with some traffic statistic, talk about accepted submissions, and then talk about our competitions and general submission opportunities:
We hit 2,700 views collectively (770 visitors) compared to last week’s 2,000 (560 visitors); we’ve topped 720 likes collectively, compared to last week’s 500; we’ve pulled in 150 comments (including our replies) compared to last week’s 90; and we’ve reached 174 followers, compared to last week’s 157! We’ve grown a healthy amount this week and can’t wait to see where we stand next Sunday!
We received about 40 submissions this week! Of those, ten were accepted (some were published this past week, others will be in the weeks to come). Remember, if your piece was rejected, we only rejected your submission not you, so keep trying! Vita Brevis will be a hard magazine to get into, but that only adds to the merit of getting that acceptance email and to the quality of the overall magazine!
We wrote “Simple Pleasures“
And stay tuned for some great posts coming up next week!
Our Holiday poetry competition is coming to a close–spread the word and submit your entries!
Also, the next competition on our list will have a $15 prize reward (the one after the Holiday Competition), due to supporters donating through our “Support Us” link. The theme has yet to be released, but keep it in mind and check in with us in the next week or so for more information.
Thank you to all of our donators–you keep the future of Vita Brevis bright!
If you have been enjoying the site, consider “buying us a coffee” (donating $3 to the magazine via Ko-fi) so we can host paid competitions, buy our own domain and upgrade our blog plan for more creative freedom, host a writing contest every month with a cash prize, and one day pay our submitters for their work! You can contribute here.
Well, that does it–thank you, WordPress community; you’re not just supporting the Vita Brevis team, you’re supporting a community of excellent writers and poets!
