CuckooPress is back………with a few changes!

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Howdie Cuckoo Followers,

I’m sure you’ve all noticed my absence for about two weeks. After 6 months of writing and publishing articles every day, I had to take a non-paid vacation. (What? Don’t you take vacations too?) But I’m back!!!!

cuckoopress is backIn my absence I noticed a few things I didn’t know:

  1. Apparently people do read what I write every day. (I thought I was alone in here.)
  2. Apparently school kids use my articles for school presentation and projects. (Yep, I was shocked too.)
  3. Even more stunning, students use my articles as topic ideas to write graduation theses. (Can you believe this? It took me six months to find a topic I liked for my thesis. I wish a had a CuckooPress back then!)
  4. People who are not in their best physical health condition use this site to brighten their day and share a laugh or two. (I received messages from people battling cancer who told me that I put a smile on their face every day, and that I can’t imagine how much they appreciate what I do. I’m humbled and I thoroughly moved by this.)

Now, this means that I have to continue with what I started, and make it better. In order to do this I added a few things to make CuckooPress a little bit more interesting:

Ten minutes interview
Are you familiar with the page Humans of New York and Humans of Willemstad? Well, I took the concept and bring my own little twist to it. Here I pick people of my choice and ask them a few questions. The interview will last exactly 10 minutes, and I ask them as much questions as I can. Magazines usually put local celebrities in the spotlight. I believe that everybody deserve a chance to be in the spotlight, because we all may be doing something that makes a difference in the lives of others. The goal here is to get to know deep thoughts of our people a little bit more. My questions are tough….so get ready!

CuckooPress Group
There’s a group on Facebook called CuckooPress Group. It’s a public group, so anybody can join, and receive instant notifications when an article is posted. You can comment, discuss and share opinions with other members. You can also ask questions to other members if you like. There are a few rules though:

  • Members are not allowed to use this group for free advertising! If you want to advertise on CuckooPress, see section Advertising for more info.
  • All members are required to have pictures on their profile, or you will be (r)ejected from the group.
