- Write content that is solely focused on quality and helping readers. No ads.
- No Advertising: Free guest accounts are provided for the benefit of our community, please don't abuse this privilege.

If you want to advertise with us, do the right thing and let us know so we can discuss a sponsored post.
- You WILL get a chance to build a brand for yourself by contributing a post, and you can add your social and website link in your author profile to help drive traffic back to your site. Deliver value to our readers, and you can develop a genuine following.
- Article Quality: Articles should be a minimum of 400 words. 2000+ is recommended for getting the most exposure on search engines, which is our biggest source of traffic. Your article should cover the topic in detail. Quality is one of the the biggest considerations for accepting guest posts. Readers love stories that have a lesson buried in them, so tell a story whenever possible to connect with our audience.
- Write an Original Article: Please do not submit the same article you have submitted to other sites.
- Links: Links will most likely be removed or marked nofollow during the editing process unless they point to an authoritative source (such as a university or government site, not your personal blog or product landing page). Links may be converted to affiliate links if we have an affiliate relationship with the third party site such as Amazon.
- Pre-Approval: We recommend getting in touch to finalize the topic or sending us the outline of your content to avoid writing on a subject matter that won't be accepted.
- Check Your Spelling & Grammar: Check your article with a tool like Grammarly Pro.
- Credit: We respect individual work, and if your idea is derivative of someone else’s work, feel free to give them credit. The same goes for images that you use on your post. Please give credit where credit is due.
- Images & Video: Images speak a thousand words. Add images or videos to convey your message and break up your copy, but don’t add them just for the sake of it. If you are writing tutorials, take a screenshot. JPG compressed images are recommended as they are usually quick to load.
- Set a Featured Image: Each article requires a minimum of one JPG image set as the featured image. We will find an appropriate one or you can supply one with an aspect ratio of 1024x512.
- No Copyright Infringements: Please DO NOT use Google search to find images as including random images you find on the web is likely to result in copyright infringement. Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels are good sites to find free images.

Also, by submitting a post, you give us copyright ownership and full editorial rights to the post including the right to edit for grammar and readability and to add or remove links.
