Add Sections of Content to Your Leaf: Images, Videos, Feeds, and Uniqueness!
We like to call the virtual Legos of content that you can stack up to make a great leaf "sections." These sections vary in purpose, just like Legos. You can add videos with the YouTube section. Add photos with the Flickr section. Upload your own photos using the Photo Gallery section. Provide a feed of your latest tweets with the Twitter section. Suck in your pins from Pinterest with the aptly titled Pinterest section. And, last but not least, tell us everything about you, your dog, your job, your experiences, and your passions with the Text section.
All of the sections available on Zujava are located in the sidebar when you are editing a leaf. Let's walk you through all of the sections available on Zujava below.
The real "meat" of a leaf: where you can add text, a photo, or jumbo photo
The default text for a rich text section states this:
"Add unique content, including a photo in this text section. Adding more text sections will allow you to add even more tantalizing content! The more unique content you add, the better your chance of this leaf performing better."
The Rich Text section will be the backbone of your leaf. It's versatile, and gives you the opportunity to use basic HTML like bold, italicize, and ordered lists. In addition, you can upload one photo. Click off the "jumbo image" box at the bottom to make the photo appear full width!
2. Featured Leaves Section
Add your other leaves, or feature related leaves from other authors!

How many of you can say that you kept your New Year's resolutions for this year? Last January, we made a proposal to all Zujava writers to help them keep their resolutions and stay on track for the year. By continuously updating their resolution leaf throughout the year, they'd keep their goals in check, while making it all very public for the world to see.
Today is the big day! Today, February 1st, we begin the 28 Leaves in 28 Days Challenge. Push yourself to write daily, and you'll be rewarded with a fatter portfolio. We're adding to the rewards this year by giving away four $25 cash prizes to our four of our favorite finalists that complete 28 leaves. Besides the potential prize money, you'll win regardless with a solid backing of 28 new leaves in your account that could make sales, earn payments, and bolster your reputation.
On Thursday, we threw down the gauntlet for the return of our 28 Leaves in 28 Days Challenge. With the blistery cold weather in the northern hemisphere, this is the perfect time of year to crank out a bunch of work while we're all shut-ins. On February 1st, which is Saturday, we'll post live on the blog our official blog post to get everyone up to speed on everything they need to know. The premise is the same as last year's challenge, except now there's a prize at the end awaiting!
How time has flown! It has been two years since Zujava's official launch date on January 23, 2012. Since then, we've hit some big milestones, met hundreds of new people, and had the honor of hosting incredible content from some really talented writers. To date, the site has over 5200 published leaves, over 8300 users, and we're creeping up on 5 million pageviews.
Payments Up 1560% Since Launch!
It pays to enter our contests, as two of our writers can tell you. What may have been the easiest contest for us to pick to date has resulted in also our smallest pool of submissions to date. Whether it was because the criteria was too difficult or the post wasn't seen by enough Zujava writers, there were only two submissions to this contest. Therefore, there are only two prizes to give away.
