Hello hello hello, fans of girlie magazines who live all over the world with a special hello to fans in Canada and the UK and Mexico!
How’s everyone doing?
It’s a hot one today in The ‘Burgh, sunny and the high will be around 85. Good walking weather. Although in weather like this I would take a water bottle with me and not stay out in the sun too long. The Old Soldier doesn’t want to fall out. How embarrassing.
But I digress…
When I first started accepting submissions several years ago, this was before I was shut down twice for adult content and moved to a different blogging platform that allowed me to publish as much adult content as I wanted to, months would go by without me receiving a single story. Today, 11 June 2015, I have a backlog of stories that will take me into next year.
To make a long story short, Submissions are closed until some time next year. I don’t know when Submissions will reopen. And that’s not all. Here’s what I pay out of pocket to publish the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette every year.
- Primary Domain $83.40
- Backup $19.95
- URL $15.00
- Submissions $360
So far this year I have made $75.00 from advertising.
So, when Submissions do open again some time next year, instead of publishing a new story from a contributor every month, I will now publish a new story from a contributor every two months. That’s the bad news. What’s the good news?
The fee for each story will remain $30.00, one of the best fees for flash fiction in the business. I hope to reopen Submissions in the Spring. I would like to thank all of my contributors and readers for your continued support. The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is now averaging around 8,000 visitors and around 25,000 page views every month.
The Old Soldier salutes you!
