Guidelines

  1. Articles must be original and have not been published anywhere else on the web.
  2. Articles should be between 400-3000 words (minimum of 400, 500-1000 is more common on the web)
  3. You may choose an image that fits well with your content. Just make sure you give credit at the end of the article if required by creative commons and provide me a link to it (so I can download and upload to the website). If you use a photo that you took yourself, mention it on the email and attach it. I can also give you a list of creative commons and free image resources for your convenience, just ask. If you can’t find an image I will find one that I think fits well with the context.
  4. Send plain text with spaces between paragraphs if you have no need for any formatting such as bold and italics. If you do have some formatting, write the article in a HTML editor and provide me the code view with all the tags, just don’t do any font, or color changes. The best way may be to write it as a draft in WordPress Visual mode and when you are done switch to Text view to copy all the content with all the HTML tags.
  5. Most of the time your article will be published. But know that there are some instances where your article may not fit well with the website. If your article does not seem a good fit I will let you know why or so you can make changes. If your article is relevant and is overall a good fit, I will respond to you ASAP (usually within 72 hrs) and you will be asked to write a short blurb for the “about the author” section where you can describe what you do and include 1-2 links to your website or blog.
