submitting your work

I received an email recently from a curated site with a request to submit my work.


I have tried submitting my work to a few sites in the past with some success.
Have you? How do you go about it?
I think it's similar to submitting your work to get coverage on a blog, don't you?
Some tips from design*sponge:
Find a blog that really fits you.


Briefly talk about yourself.
