Media Coverage of the Yahoo! Contributor Network Launch

The BIG news for AC Contributors (now “Yahoo! Contributors”) this past week was the official transition to Yahoo! territory.

All AC content is now housed on the Yahoo! Contributor Network and many Contributors can see which pieces have been published on Yahoo! channels including Shine, OMG!, Yahoo! News and Yahoo! Finance.

Exciting stuff 🙂

I was interviewed for this piece by USA Today, and several other publishers have also covered the story. Here’s a roundup in case you missed them:
