I've entered all the starter pitches from last week, so there are
plenty of easy ideas for people to use in the Starter Pitches category

This is all super awesome to hear and see! Thanks for sharing this
highlight on the list, Paul. Also, double-thanks for converting all of
the starter pitch ideas from last week into the Magazine! This was a
huge help, and we had some topics we wanted to open up to other writers
on the list as well.
Also, big thanks to all of our writers this month too who helped us
reach these numbers! :)
