Organize For CreativityWritten by Kathleen Wilson

curtain rod, tie it on with ribbon, or try my favorite, velcro stick-on tabs! Organize your kitchen logically, and not only will you reduce clutter, you'll save time and energy! Place items in cupboards near area where you normally use them. For instance, spices near stove, everyday dishes near dishwasher, cutting board and knives near sink - you get idea! Use small boxes turned upside-down to make higher "shelves" in back of your spice cabinet. You don't have to buy expensive storage cubes for your kids' rooms! Covered boxes, sewn drawstring bags from extra material, even an old suitcase under bed make good storage. A wall of simple metal-strip utility shelving (they sell it in white, as well) can accommodate a large amount of stuff, especially for older kids, and is relatively cheap at home improvement stores. I save old baby-wipe containers to store crayons, hot wheels, and that endless supply of useless toys from fast food joints! You can cover them with contact paper. Try labeling what goes where, even for older kids, so there is no arguing about what "putting it away" really means! Finally, attack one area at a time. Try to fit in a little re-organizing each day, and you'll be recognizing that creative décor you lost in clutter again soon!

7. Submit your e-zine to directories that list e-zines for people to subscribe to, and also to e-zine announcement lists.
8. Swap ads with other e-zines. This is a good way to get an ad for your e-zine out to readers already proven to be interested in what your e-zine offers.
9. Write your own articles. Writing articles will help you to establish and continue to re-enforce your status as an expert in your field to your subscriber base.
10. Use title of your feature article as headline of your e-zine along with name of your publication.
11. Submit your articles to other e-zine publishers. This is a good way to give your future subscribers a taste of fantastic content that can be found in your e-zine.
To get your articles to most publishers, submit your articles to both article announcement lists and directories, in addition to individual e-zines that accept article submissions.
12. When choosing which articles you've written to submit for publication in other e-zines, choose articles that you have already run in your e-zine so that you will always be giving your current subscribers first look at your content.
