Is it worth me pitching my idea before writing and submitting the post?
If you want to (we can’t guarantee publication though). Send your idea to email@example.com
How soon will you get back to me about it?
As soon as we’ve had a chance to read it. Usually within a week.
Should I write in a particular style?
We try to write in a friendly, succinct way and use the ‘you’ voice where possible. Blog style is best, with short paragraphs, numbered or bulleted lists and white space. The kind of thing you probably enjoy reading yourself.
How should I submit my post?
Please either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a Google document link to that address.
Is there a certain length my article should be?
Over 500 words is good. 800-100 is GREAT!
Do you pay?
Unfortunately not at this time. However, we will let you place a link in your bio (subject to review).
Yes, if they are relevant to article (linking to a product for instance). If we feel the link is there for reasons other than relevance to the article, we will remove it,
Should I write a headline?
Sure, that would be great! We might need to change it for SEO reasons, but sure, that would be great.
Will my post be edited?
It is quite likely, yes. We won’t make changes just for the sake of it, only where we need to for SEO reasons, or because we want to have it fit with a current theme or similar. But we will always seek to retain your voice and keep your article as entire as possible.
Can I repost my article elsewhere?
Nope. If we publish your article then we retain the rights to that content and we don’t allow publishing elsewhere. You publishing it somewhere else could damage our SEO and traffic.
Can you guarantee to publish my post?
No, can’t guarantee that. It might not be the right fit for us, or we might already have an article like it. In that case, you can always publish elsewhere.
We need a bio. We will use Gravatar as your photo, so make sure you have an image uploaded to your gravatar profile.
Yes please. Once it is published, we would love it if you talked about your post – share away!
We look forward to hearing from you
