Our new site is set up a little differently than our old one, and now you have the ability to contribute straight into the backend of our site.
If you visit our SUBMIT page: http://www.yummymummyclub.ca/submit you can go head and contribute straight into the back and it will get forwarded on to us for consideration, editing and publication. Please note that sometimes your articles go through a several-step editorial process and take a while to show up on the site. Please be patient with us.
Remember, you have to be signed up as a member of YMC to submit. If you are already a member, make sure to sign in. If you aren't currently a member, click here to join: http://www.yummymummyclub.ca/user/register
If you have any questions at all, please email our editor Ali Martell (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time of the day—she will answer you as soon as she can. That's why she got that fancy smartphone, after all.
