I know you all were expecting MDM's makeover to be complete, or nearly complete by mid-January. I'm sorry to report that due to lack of communication(graphic designers are so sketch) with our previous graphic designer, Princess_kiara1, the makeover timeline has shifted slightly. Lana(forevergorgeous), has agreed to take over the writer banners. I've gotten great work, on time, from her before, so I'm completely confident that MDM's writer banners rest safely in her hands.
Also, our new writers have been chosen. If you haven't received a message from Deidra or myself by now, then it's safe to assume that you were not chosen. That doesn't mean that your writing sucks. We hand picked several writers and only used the applications to select one final writer. There were lots of very well written applications, so it was a tough decision.
As for the media partners, we haven't sorted through them, yet. But I promise you I'll have a look at them as soon as I get a chance. From there I'll notify all of the new and returning media partners.
Thank you guys for being patient with us throughout the duration of this makeover. We really do hope that you enjoy the finished product.
I'd also like to address the issue of Charlotte's last couple of posts being deleted from the blog. This was my doing. After deciding which writers to remove from MDM, I decided that Charlotte would be on the list to be removed. However, for some reason, Deidra and myself were unable to remove her from the blog. The reason is unknown. But basically, no matter how many times I attempted to remove her(and it did say she was deleted) he name was still on the author's list. In short, Charlotte is no longer writing for MDM. I'm still waiting to hear back from Blogger Support on how to handle the issue of Blogger not allowing her to be removed. In the meantime, any posts she makes will be deleted.
