Writing for Homeschooling Magazines

The whole purpose of this website originally was to help writer moms break into magazine writing. It’s really not rocket science. Over the past year or so,it’s become focused more on online writing instead of magazine writing.

Lead Times for Print Publication vs Web Writing

For writing web content,2-3 months is generally a decent lead time for seasonal articles. It gives your article enough time to grow authority via incoming links and can help your SERP rankings through the peak of the season.
