Our New Contact Form

Recently on SmartGirl we added a Contact Form. There were lots of reasons to do this, and two of our favorite reasons are:
  • This is a safe way to contact us without revealing any more information than you want to
  • It's a more convenient way to contact us so that you don't have to go and open up your email client just to send a simple message
Already we've had several messages from our contact form, and I'd like to address some of those concerns here!

  1. We change our site layout too often without giving any warning
  2. Everyone should be able to be a SmartGirl Author without having to submit an application

First, I'm sorry that you've been feeling left in the dark with some of our site changes! I realize now that there's only one link on the site to this blog, and it's hidden at the bottom of the Real Life page. To help give visitors more notice when we make site changes, I'll add more links to this blog and try to put more notices up on Facebook.

Second, I also believe that anyone who wants to be a writer should get that chance. However, there's a lot of work that goes into being a SmartGirl Author and I can only take on so many at a time! When the new site gets up and running we'll be able to take on more SmartGirl Authors, but for now, unfortunately, we have to limit the number of applications we accept.

In the meantime, new SmartGirl Author positions open up all year round. If you make sure that your author application is well-written and original, you might not hear from us immediately, but you will probably hear from us eventually as soon as a position opens up!

Keep sending us your questions and concerns. If you are over 13, we can respond to you directly. Otherwise, you can look for responses here on our Development Blog!
