Submission Information & Guidelines
Your post/article needs to be original. We are not interested in rehashed material that you have either posted somewhere else or have copied.. Copying others will get you booted from our site.
Once your letter is published on this webiste you agree not to publish the piece anywhere else, including your own website/blog. You may link to the main article, but only through a summary.
There is no minimum required word count, your letter is from the heart so length doesn’t matter.
We will not make major language changes, as these are personal pieces and writing tone will be kept. We will check for any spelling errors.
Currently we offer an Author Box at the end of all your posts. This will include a small blurb about you and links to your Social Media profiles and personal website. We currently offer links to a personal website/blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn. We can link to all of them or whatever combination you want.
We don’t require pictures, and we will pull some for the article if necessary, but pictures are of course a huge bonus. You will be able to send files from the letter submission form, and we also detail file sizes.
Your author links cannot be spam related. They have to be to something legitimate. We will not link back to credit report sites, gambling sites, pornography, finance sites, or anything related to spam sites. The links are for your benefit, so make them count.
Keep the article links to a minimum. If you are linking off the site it needs to be something related to what you are talking about in your letter. No SPAM links will be included. Conversely, we always appreciate you including at least one link to another article on our site, but it isn’t a requirement.
Once content is published your name remains on it as Author, you still own the content, and we will remove a letter if requested.
