WELL ALIGNED UNIQUE CONTENT

Our editors love solid, high-quality content. Well-formed plagiarism free articles with informative and fresh ideas make the article stand out.

Your content must prove to add value to our readership and solve the reader’s problem on the given topic.

Your post should be a minimum of 1500 words. We respect quality over quantity. So make sure you cover all possible things for a given topic to educate the reader sufficiently. Your content must prove to add value to our readership and solve the reader’s problem on the given topic.

Images

Having an image in every post is good. But remember, pictures can make a good post into a GREAT one. Ideal image sizes include 640×360, 1280×720, and  1920×1080. We want your post to be as social media friendly as possible! Please only upload photos that you own/ that are free from copyrights. Images without copyrights will not be accepted.

Formatting

When you submit articles to us, make sure that the content is in a proper final format. It must be easily readable with relevant sub-headings and sources, if any, required. Use headings to break up a lengthier post. If your post is longer than 2500 words, consider breaking the post up into a series and pitch that idea to us – we love series!

Editing

Our editors try their best to make every post informative, likable, and readable. So we edit your post to correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors. We may also edit some parts of the post, including the title, introductions, or conclusions of your post. We also add relevant headings or sub-headings to make the article more readable.

We reserve the right to take down your article if the same content is published elsewhere after publishing the post on our website. Publishing the same posts on several websites leads to plagiarism, and it does not align with our guest post guidelines. As per these guidelines, we own the right to remove the guest post from our website at any time with/without prior notice to you.

Links

Note that we are happy to include links in your post. But it is imperative to know that we do not accept keyword links back to third-party businesses, and we do not accept affiliate or promotional links. If your post is stuffed with too many links, we may remove some out at our discretion.
