MY AAJ: Popular Contributors and Columns
With each newsletter, we plan to highlight MY AAJ related information. With MY AAJ, we allow readers to select their favorite contributors and article types (or columns). Favorite contributors and columns will then appear on a member's MY AAJ page, and they're notified via email each time a designated favorite is published.
We've compiled a current list of the top twelve for...

Editorial Staff Updates
We brought on several new contributors to help support AAJ as it continues to grow. Some contributors are responsible for editing certain article types, while others manage sections like the Download Center or the Musician Center.
Please familiarize yourself with the twelve primary contributors and their areas of responsibility on our revised Contact Us page.
Uploading your photos to the site
We've upgraded the AAJ Visual Arts Center and plan to make several enhancements to it in the coming months. If you're an amateur photographer, please upload your concert and festival photos to the Community Photos album at the Visual Arts Center. If you're a pro and have an album, please upload new photos regularly.
To upload photos to the "Community Photos" album, go to the Visual Arts Center, click the "Community Photos" album (right column), then select "Add Photos" from the "<< album actions >>" dropdown. You can upload as many images as you want at any time.
Please help us ensure consistency by titling your images this way:
[Artist/Band Name] at [Venue/Event Name] in [City] on [Date] by [Your Name].
To add a link to your photo(s) within your article, read this tip.
Tip: Finding CD Covers
We'd like to strongly encourage you to add CD cover art to all your CD reviews. To find cover art, please look to AAJ first by searching our database of covers.
If you can't find the cover there, search the retail sites, the artist's site, or the label's site. If you're not sure how to capture the cover art URL, please read the tip on this page.
Remembering Marc Meyers
We want to pay tribute to Marc Meyers, a long-time AAJ contributor and AAJ bulletin board moderator. Marc passed away on August 18th and we'll miss him. Marc was instrumental in shaping the bulletin board and contributed insightful and often-quoted CD reviews. He was also a personal friend.
There's a very touching tribute to Marc on bulletin board, in case you're interested.
Our best to Marc's wife, Jane, and her two boys, Chaz and Shaun.
As always, we welcome your ideas and input. Thanks for being a part of the team!
