Aly's Newsletter: Wild Wednesday Edition
Lots to do today!
Tomorrow evening, NYCWFF begins and I have a pretty busy weekend scheduled. (And yes, i’m super giddy to be able to type those words…)
So I'm going to try to knock out as much content as I can today and tomorrow so that beginning tomorrow night, I can focus on celebrity chef stalking. Er, appreciating.
Here's what I'm working on:
1 - For Spy.com, I'm rounding up the best cast irons (and I'm also open to cast iron related things, like say pot holders that are uniquely good for cast irons). All other pending Spy.com stories from earlier this week have been completed.
2 - For HerMoney, I've wrapped up the "what we are spending money on" story but am still accepting pitches for holiday food budget and getting more value from your holiday meals with repurposing leftovers. If anyone wants to comment for either of those, please reach out! Open to shopping, personal finance experts, as well as chefs.
3 - Still accepting pitches for all the Forbes holiday gift guides I posted about yesterday!
4 - The cask strength whiskey story has been completed. NO more pitches for that one please!
5 - Still accepting boxed mac and cheese pitches as well as RD/nutritionist input for the Clean Plates story on healthiest mac and cheeses you can buy in a box. (This is more boxed/packaged mixes than like pre-made mac and cheeses you can buy and defrost and heat and serve - sorry for any confusion!)
You may have noticed that I did not include deadlines today. I’m actually trying a new tactic. That’s because I’m noticing — every time I do people wait until close to that deadline to submit. Very often, by then, early birds have already gotten me what I need and the story is done. So, as a favor to you, consider everything ASAP - your best bet to get included is to get to me faster than the next person!
Emails only please - firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's what has published since yesterday:
