Bottom Up Mind is only as good as the readers,
writers, editors, link submitters and volunteers who all contribute to making it
what it is-- a community.
Sometimes called "blogs", diaries come in two flavors: a Personal
Diary and a Public Diary. What's the difference? An entry which is a
Public Diary entry appears to the public, usually from the home page and from
the "inside" pages categorized by tags. A Personal
Diary entry only shows up on your personal "authors page" which
you are free to share with whomever you wish. All of the criteria for Article
Submissions (below) would be good to apply to Public Diaries. You can sign up
for submitting your Personal or Public Diaries below....

don't count that as affecting exclusivity. We do insist that you never publish
anything which you don't have written permission to publish. By publishing you

take responsibility for any costs incurred if Bottom Up Mind is sued because you
copied copyrighted material without permission.
We are selective at Bottom Up Mind and do not publish all the articles that are

slowly off the tag (directory) pages.
If you consistently submit articles of high quality and consistency, we may
elevate you from a member submitter to a trusted author submitter. We're looking
for just about perfect records, without problematic submissions that have to be
If your submission is accepted, we will publish it on our webpages and it may be
sent in our newsletter. We will respect whatever byline you choose to write
under, short of misrepresenting yourself as another person. We allow you to
retain reprint rights, but we retain the right to publish your articles in
collections in books or other websites.
If you find great articles, we'd really appreciate it if you add a link on
Bottom Up Mind to that article. We make it easy. You cut and paste the URL address in
one field, the title in another, and description in a third field. You can add
your comments to the comment field and can even come up with a title in the
title field. Finally, you categorize the article link with tags (More is better.)
It usually takes under a minute to do a link. We do
NOT send notification of acceptance of links. You'll see them on the site if we

become eligible to be invited to become an editor.
