Photos- Please name your photo files appropriately before sending them in. It is difficult for me to sort thru a my downloaded daily pic files if they all have names like “image001.jpg”. I won’t reject poorly named pics, but some cooperation here would save me a lot of time. JPEG or JPG format only.
Keep Submissions As Short As Possible- If you have more than a paragraph of text content just submit a short description and a link to a site where interested readers can find it. No reason for me to print what is already available with just 1 click of a link.
