Fedora Magazine vs. Community Blog
What is the difference between the https://fedoramagazine.org[Fedora Magazine] and the Community Blog? They focus on two different audiences (or types of readers).
The Fedora Magazine targets everyday Fedora users, Linux enthusiasts, and technology hobbyists. Fedora contributors are included in these audiences, but they are not the main focus. The Community Blog is the news hub for Fedora contributors and people working inside of the Fedora community. The Community Blog specifically focuses on our contributors.
For example, an article on how to use a new package in Fedora is better for the Magazine. Any Fedora user may be interested in using the package. An article that announces a new feature to a Fedora Infrastructure service or an Ambassador event report is better for the Community Blog. A Fedora user may not be interested, but our contributors have a stronger interest.
Sometimes there is some overlap between the two. Think hard about who you are writing for and who you want to read your article. This should answer the question of where to write your article. The CommOps and Fedora Magazine teams are happy to answer any doubts or questions if you are unsure.
Write an article
The Community Blog is managed by the CommOps team. The system administration is managed by {FWIKI}/Infrastructure[Fedora Infrastructure]. However, we need _your help_ to share the awesome things you and your area of Fedora are working on.
Articles don't need to be long. Short snippets are useful too. If you're not sure how much to write, 300 words is a good target. If needed, you can always write more.
See the {COMMBLOG}/writing-community-blog-article/[Writing an article] guide to get started. This page explains the process for writing and how to get your post published.
Community Blog theme
