About Us: NOWopolis blog collective writers are intensely interested in all things NOW - from the latest theories on quantum mechanics to the newest and coolest crop circles. We scour the web to find supercool stuff then boil that information down and pack it into an article with relevant images and links, as exhaustive as we can manage on a single subject area. Our team is comprised of web designers, bloggers, tech nerds, spriritualists, UFO enthusiasts, and even a reincarnated Mayan priest.

Format: NOWopolis has multiple articles per week. The emphasis is on quality, well-researched and fully sourced articles on whatever the subject is. This is not a blog in the traditional sense (of many smaller posts on a daily basis). It is, rather, a collective online urban magazine which we hope you will enjoy every time you open your inbox or feed reader or visit our site.

Statistics: First published in 2008, the audience has grown considerably.  As to its future, this is what our in-house (and very well paid) psychics tell us: NOWopolis will have over 500,000 unique visitors per month. Our articles will be featured on the front pages of social news sites including Metafilter, Digg, Reddit, Fark, StumbleUpon and ShoutWire. NOWopolis will be written about and linked to from major national websites and blogs including Gawker, Gizmodo, WebWare, Pronet Advertising, The MyBlogLog Blog, Wired, Neatorama, Dark Roasted Blend, Deputy Dog, Fox and MSNBC. NOWopolis will no doubt be in the Alexa top 30K, Technorati top 2K and will have a Google PageRank of at least 6. NOWopolis will have over 5,000 regular RSS subscribers. ~ Intention is everything :) !

Submissions: Have a story, links or images you want featured on NOWopolis? NOWopolis is about collaboration and sharing knowledge concerning communities and art around the world. We welcome submissions of ideas, images, links, stories and even integrated posts. In turn, we will gladly credit authors and tipsters with bylines and links as appropriate. However, please understand that we will accept and reject submissions at our sole discretion.

Comments: Comments that are spammy will be deleted or modified. That means: put a name in the name field, not a domain name or targeted keywords. Keywords won’t help anyone anyway as comments are no-follow. Don’t comment on five posts in a row simply to be listed on the commentators list on the sidebar - your comments will be deleted. Critical as well as positive comments are welcome so long as they are intelligent and well-intentioned.

Credits: All images with known sources are credited to said sources in the paragraph immediately following the image. In most cases this is done as an inline link which we have found sends more traffic than a ‘via’ or parenthetical credit link. After all, we want to not only credit sources but send them traffic as well. If an image is being used on this site that you own and wish to have removed or that is credited incorrectly please contact us via the link above and we will respond promptly.
