The libreoffice magazine is a bimonthly release.
The advertisements in the LibreOffice Magazine are not paid. We work
different. Our intention with the Magazine is promote LibreOffice,
promote the FLOSS events and promote the blogs that promote LibreOffice.
The truth is that we help each other. For example, we have enterprises
in Brazil that provide services with free software and when they want to
have an advertisement in the Magazine, I ask for help for the project.
Never money! Our last magazine release, we had an advertisement from
Ricolândia enterprise, they work with animation, videos, websites and
etc and they only work with free software. Then, our agreement was: they
are preparing an animation video about LibreOffice in Portuguese and
Why do we have so many volunteers?
First, we announce call for papers for all editions in the social
networks and e-mail lists. Our magazine has sections for LibreOffice
(articles, tutorial and tips) and open space for open source communities
(articles, tutorial and tips).
We take very seriously the magazine project like a magazine paid. And I
think the volunteers feel privileged and very motivated to write. The
magazine project is growing so fast and it's marvelous.
We make the volunteers feel at home, we are very kind to them. In the
end, I think we are a big family. Many open source communities rowing
the boat to the same side, all with the same goal, sharing the knowledge. :)
