Note that these figures are based on the one million most visited web sites (e.g. 0.27% of the total web sites according to figures of December 2011), according to Alexa.com, and language is identified using only the home page of the sites in most cases. As a consequence, the figures show a significantly higher percentage for many languages (especially for English) as compared to the figures for all websites. The figures for all websites are unknown, but some sources estimate below 50% for English

The number of non-English pages is rapidly expanding. The use of English online increased by around 281% from 2001 to 2011, however this is far less than Spanish (743%), Chinese (1,277%), Russian (1,826%) or Arabic (2,501%) over the same period.

An Invitation to All Writers, Bloggers and Thinkers

Blank Space invite

We cordially invite you to be a part of our debut publishing work “Blank Space” – An anthology-styled book series.

As the title says a ‘Blank Space’ can be filled with anything. We are hopeful to fill it with positive thoughts on various issues in multiple genres like stories, poems, arts and articles. This ‘Volume 1’ of ‘Blank Space’ will emphasize on Short Stories that are ‘Filled with inspiration’

Why “Blank Space”?

1. To spread Positive Vibes by promoting the reading habit among students(special focus), parents and people who hardly spend time on reading. For ardent book readers this will give a whole new experience. Blank Space will be translated into other languages as well and published* (*based on the availability of our associates and translators).

2. We are focusing on reaching students in schools and colleges to cultivate a habit of reading the Appropriate Stuffs, which will help them build a better perspective on the life, so they can groom themselves as a responsible individual. We aim to achieve this by addressing the right issue and creating an interest in them to care for the society. So you can be assured that your work will reach a larger number of people and inspire them.

Apart from the idea of taking this book, we are engaged in conducting various free workshops, training programs on leadership, ambitious thinking, environmental awareness, sustained living, etc. We will be coming up with more events for the students, especially in rural areas of India. If you are interested in knowing more about our works, please contact helpdesk@propelsteps.com (or) +91 72000 48566

Positive Vibes – Every good thought seeded in a mind to encourage creation of a good individual and thus a good society 

3. To encourage writers / aspiring writers by creating an ultimately different platform for them to get published, earn money and reputation. More than that we ensure your words impact many lives positively. We purely believe in you and your writing. Your background, experience, fame does not really matters. You may be an amateur writer or someone who never wrote anything before, but you may want to write now, we welcome you.

How it works?

To say briefly – You write according to the proposed topic and guidelines. Send it to us, our team will shortlist, publish it and you can earn as an author. Most importantly the copyright of your work always belongs to you.

Do you need to Pay money?

NO. You don’t need to pay any money. It is absolutely FREE. All you need to do is write your best.

What’s next? 

Since this is for a good cause we hope you will support us. If you choose to contribute as a Writer, then please drop a mail to publish@propelsteps.com we will get back to you with more detailed information on how we can proceed further with the present volume.

Also support us by sharing this post on any of your social networking sites (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc) or you can Reblog this post on your blog as well.

We do things positively and proactively focus on actions which will yield results. This is a transparent and a humble request from us.

Peace and Love,

Team – Propel Steps
