Authentic voice – If you aren’t engaged with your content, how can you expect to engage readers?
Topic – Articles that are on topic deal with business, social media, learning, leading, and quality of life.
Links – I do allow them but them must be relevant to the content. Please try to limit yourself to 2 backlinks and, ideally, one of those should be in your bio.
Advertising – I am not looking to advertise or promote your product. Guest articles should be informative and not meant to promote any product or service.
Appropriate length – “How long should my article be?” Most articles run from 800 to 1,200 words. Your article should be a minimum of 500 words, and as long as it takes to deliver your message.
- The easiest articles for us arrive already formatted for WordPress in HTML.
- Word files can be translated by WordPress, but there’s always code to clean up afterwards.
- Headlines on this blog use only the H3 tag
- Please provide the full URL of anything you want to link to.
Grammar and Spelling – Please make sure your post has been properly checked for spelling and grammar. If your post needs editing, I will send it back.
Break it up – It’s more interesting to read articles that are punctuated by lists, bullets, block quotes and subheads.
Credit – If you want credit, include a short bio at the end.
Process – If you submit, I will review, post and send back a link. If the content is not well-written and/or not relevant, I will politely pass.
