This new blogger blog, OS Editor's Picks, is an alternative to Open Salon's cover page and editor's picks. 100 co-authors can participate.

Too often newcomers join Open Salon, post a few times, are ignored, and leave before we knew they were there. To them it must seem we spend more time squabbling with one another than reading people we don't already know.
Not only newcomers get lost. Many excellent writers have been posting for months or years and never been discovered except by a few loyal readers. Serious posts are neglected while frivolous ones attract huge ratings.
Writers should not be bashful or modest. Co-authors should link to their own best posts, and commenters should share their links.
