What are you getting yourself into? Nothing. You retain all rights and responsibilities to your work. What does that mean? It means you may post your original work online, publish it or sell it as you please, when you please. You also remain legally responsible for the content you provide. There will be no financial contract between us whatsoever and no obligations beyond the terms of this disclaimer or any written addendum we agree upon (via email). I don’t make money on my blog and I won’t pay for content from anyone.
And no, you do not have to commit to anything beyond agreeing to these terms. If you only want to post on Memee’s Musing’s once, that’s perfectly acceptable. If you want to submit on multiple occasions that is fine too. It is however my blog and I do not intend to have co-authors on this site other than as a guest blogger referred to as Sunday Callers with postings primarily publishing on Sundays.
Credit is always given where credit is due. Therefore, authorship credit will remain intact and prominently displayed with your work(s) for the life of each post. Additionally, each individual post will provide a link back to either your contact info or primary website… it’s up to you. You must provide the link you specifically want to use (unless we come to some other written agreement).
With regard to the link you furnish me, it is your responsibility to maintain the link in working order. If my readers inform me, or I find that the link has become dead, I have the right to de-emphasize the link while maintaining the authorship and website accreditation as it was at time of submission. If you change the link URL it is your responsibility to update me so I can keep your link active on my blog. Just email me and I’m happy to do the necessary update. I agree to maintain my email, firstname.lastname@example.org for the life of Memee’s Musings as part of this contract.
I have the right to keep the agreed upon post(s) on Memee’s Musings indefinitely or remove them at my own discretion. All posts to Memee’s Musings may be distributed to subscribers and followers through automatic publishing to media sites such as, but not limited to, Twitter, as an example.

Memee has no control over and is not responsible for how other platforms process and display your posts as a result of their functionality and demographics.

As such, it’s contributors and readers all have one thing in common, mental illness. Ms. Moore is held harmless to all posts related to this agreement between you, the Sunday Caller, and I, B.L. Memee writer and publisher of Memee’s Musings. Letters to the Mind is a separate endeavor from Memee’s Musings and holds no stake in it, the content, or what is done with it. Your mental health awareness posts may be published on either site on dates selected by publisher, which means it may appear on one prior to the other and, in regard to Letters to the Mind, it may also appear on a day other than Sunday.

Letters to the Mind is a project where individuals whose lives are impacted by mental health issues write to and about their mental illnesses to help raise awareness and change the impact of stigma experienced throughout the world.
