Submission Guidelines & Tips

Some writing tips to help you get more views and readers:

  1. Readers don’t like really long paragraphs, it feels like hard work. So break your writing up into smaller paragraphs.
  2. Try to catch your audience right away with a headline that evokes intrigue or emotion. Do the same thing with your opening paragraph and sentences. Your intro is your chance to convince your reader the rest of your article is worth reading.
  3. Cite your sources using a hyperlink instead of footnotes. You do this by highlighting the text you need to source, click the chain link button you see in the dashboard and enter the URL that you are using as a source.
  4. At the beginning or end of your article leave us a note if you want us to SEO optimize your article. SEO optimize means we will change your headline, add some section titles and maybe change the words you use in some places so as to target your article for specific keywords.
  5. If you include photos please on the image file itself or at the end of your article let us know where you got the photos from so we can check their copyright status.
  6. We do not publish hate speech, product endorsements, unsubstantiated claims, or slander.
  7. For the most part, we don’t edit much of your article because it is your article, but we will contact you if we have questions about sources, image, etc.
  8. Share your article out! It can be helpful to time your articles to any upcoming related holidays or events. As an example, an article about women’s issues does well when published on International Women’s Day. Leave us a note if you want your article to be published on a certain date.
