Web Series Today: Become an "Author"

Web Series Today is a "collaborative community based blog" about "web series" What that means is that members of the web series community can become "authors" and post videos, articles about web series, or links to information/news about web series and related topics such as ARGs or "Transmedia".

By creating an open platform for posting videos and web series news chronologically Web Series Today aims to fill the role of keeping the community up to date with what is going on on a daily basis. Show creators, cast, crew, or even fans and "critics" are all eligible to participate because they are in the best position to know what is going on with a particular series.

"Authors" on the blog can post about any series they enjoy and believe that the readership of Web Series Today would also enjoy. It is important to understand the culture, format and open philosophy of Web Series Today before becoming a participant, so if interested, take the time to read the blog daily. For example an author might want to just introduce readers to a series that they think might be of interest or the author might choose to post videos from a series on a regular basis as they are released. Authors are fully responsible for anything they post and answer directly to the web series community.

If you would like to become a participant as an "author" send a request to:
[email protected] Use the subject title: "Author request" and explain briefly how you are involved in the web series community.

Blogger only allows a restricted number of authors so it is important that those who do decide to participate contribute on a regular basis to the shared goal of keeping the community up to date with what is going on in the web series World.

  9. Yea, the idea since the blog began was to have an open platform. This includes everyone from those who create shows, to those who watch them, comment on them, and interact with them in any way. We are all one community and it takes everyone to collaborate together to keep the community up to date with what is going on.

  10. Okay, I'll try one last time....I keep getting kicked off....please help Lonelyfish Tachyfin and modelmotion and good friend and wonderful creator Travis Gordon of Spellfury....I'm new and don't know a thing about blogging....I do know one thing though...I'd like to be positvive and comment on my webisode Pink Slip particularly on our latest episode Pink Slip - Part 6 - Juggling www.youtube.com/watch?v=8p4sOv5u6e8
    which tells the story of an unemployed actor Max who has been blackballed, then pink slipped from his night job, evicted from his apartment, just as his last remaining relative, Aunt Florrie dies.....best friend Joey decides to make Max up to look like his deceased relative so he can keep her $105/month apartment. Complications arise when Max meets and falls in love with fashionista Suzie who visits her Aunt Pauline in the same building. In our latest episode, Pink Slip - Part 6 - Juggling, Suzie (Kaitlin Snyder) decides to take Max (Michael Adam Hamilton) to meet Aunt Florrie (also Michale Adam Hamilton), so Max/AuntFlorrie and best pal Joey/Lullabelle/Gertrude must do some fancy juggling to keep their ruse up. I hope you stop by to watch.

Oh I love that little guy.

    2. Can I send Tachyfin a great big fishy smackerooo of a kiss...a fish kiss of course. TY Tachy.

    3. Tachyfin said "Gulp, gulp gulp" which loosely translated means "Get well soon".

      .... and, I am sure Tachyfin would appreciate a kiss on Facebook.

  14. When I've gone to that url, it says the page doesn't exist, no matter how I type it. I think it's time for Super Tachyfin to rescue me. He does own a cape, doesn't he?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well I think SuperTachyfin is a bit confused about what page you were referring to. Tachy's only comment was "Gulp". If you are on board as an author all you should have to do is hit New Post at the top of the blog.

    2. This looks more like Dark Vampire Magick than the work of Witches. Witches are NOT that dark. They are healers, but people will do what they will to sell something! too dark for me.

    3. FYI: http://www.webseriestoday.com/2011/11/web-series-today-faq-frequently-asked.html

  19. By the way here's the Synopsis

    SYNOPSIS:
    13 Witches is a Fantasy Horror story where thirteen sisters who practiced
    paganism, centuries ago , were wrongfully accused of being witches.

    They were tortured, punished and burned alive by those they loved. Only one of the sisters escaped:Nemesis. A deal is struck between Nemesis and the devil and centuries later, the sisters have been reincarnated and seek revenge on the ones who stole their lives.

    Sexy and dark, with comedic timing.

    Thank you again !

    1. Real Witches would NEVER seek revenge like that. They come from the heart. They would know whatever they do, WILL come back to them! Revenge is not an option. What you put out ALWAYS comes back.

  20. Sabine, please read and follow the instructions as they are given above in the post.

  21. If you rebrand it please keep lonelyfish Tachyfin or I'll cry.

  22. Some of us might feel unwanted? I submitted to become an author over 3 weeks ago and never heard from anyone. The only communication received was a slight reprimand on the google+ page to make sure I added a title. I am the producer of Johnny Dynamo, may I please play sir?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I do not see any request from Johnny Dynamo. Can you please submit as new one as described in the post.

    As for G+ we have a series of community guidelines which we ask everyone to read before posting.

    1. modelmotion, I resubmitted on sept 1 per our request and haven't heard anything? Could be that you are totally busy which I completely understand, or could be that gmail just doesn't like one of us - I would understand that too - do you accept smoke signals, carrier pigeon or some other form of submission requests?

      Thanks

      Delete
    2. What e-mail was used to make the request?

      Delete
    3. We received on author request on 9/1 and that was from Cap South. Did you sent your request to: [email protected] with a subject of "author request" as indicated in the guidelines?

      Delete
    4. Ok, found it. Yes it did go into spam for some reason. Thats not good! So yea, we will need to see if that has happened to any other authors. Thanks for pointing our the problem.

      But once again, WST is an open platform. It is important that everyone understands that, so please help spread the word.

      Delete
    5. We currently have hit the max Blogger limit of 100 authors. We will be cleaning up the list in the next few days to remove inactive authors. Once that is complete you will be added. In the mean time you may ask any existing author if they can submit an article for you.

  24. Johnny Dynamo is a good show. Definitely deserving of joining the community. Hopefully this issue gets resolved.

    1. Breaking and Entering TV, thanks for the compliment. As you can see, it is now sept. 7 and still nothing from WST. Maybe it's my cologne? Either way, I will assume our show is not worthy enough for WST, we would have like to have been part of the community. Oh well, being a creative sort, rejection is part of the job description. For all of you lucky enough to have made the WST cut, I wish you the best of luck with your shows - much success to all of you!

      Delete
    2. Johnny Dynamo: anyone who has been around Web Series Today for any length of time should know that is just not how WST works. WST is an open platform and anyone who is a member of the community is invited to participate. We do NOT pick and choose. Being open is in our DNA.

      Please re-submit your request, or provide us with the email address it was submitted under so that we can look into the issue. But please note that you, as with any Web series creator is welcome, and appreciated. There are always tech issues to overcome, but that is where we need to work together.

  25. Author request submitted. Thankful for a forum like this and looking forward to contributing and sharing information, not just self-promoting, because our run ended today anyway.

    1. We currently have a wait list but in the near future we will be updating the author list (and removing any authors who can not contributed in the past 30 days). When that is complete you will receive an "author invite".
