Paul gets requests all the time that are like "hey, this is permaculture/this is a good thing, so you should promote it for me/us!" and I thought there was a thread for that here somewhere...and I can't find it. (Other staff:  if you find it, feel free to merge this with that thread.)

It's a lot about how we support promoting your own stuff here on permies.

And it's in part how folks keep telling Paul what he "should" do.

In short, make a thread about your cool/good thing. Participate in a meaningful way here on the forums (especially with a link to your cool thing in your signature!). THEN your thing might qualify to get a mention in the daily-ish, or promotion in another way. Heavy on the "might." To be blunt or sorta rude about it, lots of folks don't have enough to offer in exchange for the power of the empire's promotion.

This cartoon says it far better than I could. I love it.
