Add a bulletin to make an announcement or to update the YoungINC.LA community on your progress.

To get started, point your mouse to the tab, "Create Team". Then click the tab, "Bulletin," in the drop down menu.

Click "+ Add Submission" to start a new bulletin.

Besides entering text, you can upload a lead image to give YoungINC.LA subscribers a nice visual summary of what’s inside the rest of your post. This image will also be shown on social media when others reference your article.

In the main body of the bulletin, you have the option to add more images...

...and attachments (up to 7 MB in size)...

...or switch to HTML mode and paste code in directly if you’re composing in an external HTML editor. HTML mode is also where you can add embed codes for photo slideshows, videos, and music.

Once you’re done with your bulletin, you have the option of adding a bulletin excerpt, which will display on the All Bulletins page. This can be useful for casual readers and those who access your bulletins via RSS or search engine links. Also, this description will show up on social media when others refer to your bulletin.

By default, we’ll generate a link for your new blog post based on its title, but you can always change the URL to be whatever you like.

Before publishing your new post, add any tags you want—these will help organize bulletins.

...and choose when you want to publish it.

You can even save a draft for now and publish the bulletin when it’s polished, or set it to publish sometime in the future.

After your post is published, it will be open to comments.

You can always choose to close comments on your post and reopen them whenever you like.
