All articles submitted must be original and not published elsewhere. If accepted on our blog, they should not be published elsewhere anytime in the future.
If you have a relationship with a company or someone mentioned in your post, you must disclose it. “My case study features the New York Times, a client of mine.” “My business partner, Ben Rosario, wrote in an article…”
Longer posts get more page views, time on page, and social sharing. It would be awesome if your posts are between 1,500 to 2,000 words. They should be at least 1,000 words.
Links to third-party authoritative sources are welcome. Having said that, our editorial team is always on the lookout for links that appear promotional.
- No links to people’s home pages for their companies for quotes or cited sources. Linking to sources’ Twitter accounts is allowed.
- No calls to action that are self-promotional (“Our new e-book covers this topic in detail. Click here to download!”).
- Any links that appear promotional or spamy will be removed.
- We reserve the right to add rel=”nofollow” to any link or remove a link at any time, before or after an article is published.
- No links to websites on pills/RX, porn, gambling, and payday loans.
Required: Upload a featured image that is 1200 pixels wide and 900 pixels tall.
- Upload at least one image in your post.
- You can use images from free stock photo sites that release all licenses (e.g. Death to Stock Photo, Unsplash, and Pixabay) only.
- You can also use images that you created or photographs you took. Your own screenshots are welcome but make sure they do infringe on any copyrights or trademarks!
- No promotional images: Images cannot have a company logo or brand.
- No external links on images.

We reserve the right to replace or remove images we feel are irrelevant to the post.
All images must have proper attribution at the bottom of your post:
