Got eHarmony adventures?
eHarmony Blog is the first and only web log for eHarmony, and it’s no-holds-barred unofficial! We’ve been described as, “Seriously, this site is detailed (yay) as well as opinionated (double yay). Every service should be so lucky to have a blog like this about them.1”
Our editorial policy is simple: “We are unaffiliated with any dating site. Be wary of articles from authors who are!”
Now, 1 May 07, eHarmony Blog is opening its doors for correspondents. If you have something to share with eHB readers, and you understand our editorial policy, we welcome you aboard.
eHarmony Blog is opening three kinds of correspondent accounts to the public:
- Contributors. Contributors can create posts but Editors must approve them for publication. Everyone who registers becomes a contributor, instantly. Yay!
- Authors. Authors can create and publish posts and edit their own posts. We’ll grant this role to people after we get to know them better.
- Editors. Editors can create and publish posts, edit their own posts, publish other people’s posts, moderate visitor comments, and access eHB’s Google Analytics reports. We’ll grant this to Authors who promise to be good boys and girls.
All your contributions remain your property and all rights to copy and distribute it is yours. Of course, eHB editors are empowered to edit your contributions for clarity and when it is absolutely necessary.
40 people blog about eHarmony every day – why invite more?
Because people need to be heard. Many people don’t have the energy to create a blog in Blogger or Typepad to share their eHarmony adventures. eHB will exist between eDateReview (who has collected 1280 comments about eH from its visitors since October 2003, all unmoderated) and eHarmony Advice advice.eharmony.com, eH’s Newsletter-turned-blog (whose visitor comments are totally moderated by eHarmony management). We’d like to be the first-ever dating site blog where anyone can contribute (d’ya know Slashdot?).
What do I write about?
Anything that fits our editorial policy. Google News, the Usenet, Yahoo Groups, YouTube Technorati and Digg are abundant sources of eH material. (Click these links now and be current with eH affairs.) You can also share with us your last phone call, your last date, or your engagement story with an eHarmony match — with civility of course.
Might I get in trouble with this?
Although no part of eHarmony Blog hardware and software is in US jurisdiction, having a pseudonym and changing the details that are identifiable to you is a good idea.
