In today's Magazine meeting, we wanted to help share writing
opportunities for anyone looking for a chance to write their first or
another article for the Magazine. In case you weren't already aware,
there are starter pitches on the Magazine for hot, trending topics you
can write about:
Another of these idea we are looking for writers on in is an article on
the OpenWeather GNOME Shell Extension. This add-on is a simple GNOME
extension that makes it easy to get the weather from a location you set.
You can find the add-on and the description in the Magazine at the links
If you're interested in writing this, please drop a reply here on the
list that you're interested. We'll move the article from starter pitches
to drafts and assign you editing rights so you can get started. If you
have any questions, feel free to reach out here as well.

Last week's hits were the highest weekly total we've had in over six
months -- and maybe ever -- other than a release week: over 61K. And
if we can pull off a few more great posts by Monday, we'll beat
non-release *months* too!
I think this shows that more articles are good, especially those that
involve high frequency search hits from users. Atom and Raspberry Pi
especially stood out with high numbers of views.
I would encourage all writers, rather than writing about random topics
you think might be interesting, first look at writing toward some of
the ideas we are setting up as starter pitches from last meeting:
Just my $0.02. :-)
I'm making some editions to Sylvia's Python article. Particulary, I'm not
happy with the results, I think we can discuss this to make it a serie, and
not a single article. Being the original Sylvia's article the first one,
and the pass to an article about tips, Virtual Environment, PEPs and others.
