  1. Thank you for this podcast. I enjoyed working with Sumitha on a recent article she accepted of mine for her site. She is expedient and personal in her correspondence, which can be rare in a blog of her size and following. She is also professional and gracious as is obvious from her interview. I definitely recommend reading all the way through her “Write for Us” page as she asks for very specific things. I found it to be helpful in making a submission I hoped would be accepted.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful podcast. I have been following A Fine Parent for several months now. I’ve enjoyed all the articles I’ve read. Being a newbie writer, this interview has given me the courage to send my article idea.

    Thanks Susan!

  3. What an amazing woman and magazine! I resonate with every single word she is saying and will be submitting my articles to A Fine Parent for sure!

    I am also very impressed with Beyond Your Blog and will be following you and subscribing to your newsletter as well. I am a Mom blogger who blogs about how her son with autism is raising her at http://www.exceptionalmomchild.wordpres.
