Here’s what we’re looking for in an article:
We do not publish content that has already been published somewhere else. Google doesn’t like duplicate content, and we don’t like being your second choice.
We’re looking for well-researched, in-depth articles that are at least 1500 words long. In fact, the articles that do best are usually at least 2000 words long. We want more of them.
We want practical tips and takeaways that our readers can put to work. That being said, use theory, research, and science for supporting your claims and making your article more comprehensive. Always add links to reputable sources that back up what you’re saying.
Share your experience and use examples to help readers better understand the topic. In most cases, it’ll be your experience and unique standpoint that will add the biggest value to your article.
Pay attention to the structure and make sure it’s easy to follow your flow of thought. Every article should consist of an introduction, body, and conclusion. When writing, always explain why are you mentioning a specific idea or concept, and how it helps you answer the question proposed in the headline.
We’re looking for articles that are easy to scan through – short paragraphs, clear headlines, sub-headlines, bullet lists, images, etc. In the best-case scenario, the reader should be able to learn the main takeaways by only reading headlines.
Use Grammarly (it’s free!), ask a friend, or hire a freelance proofreader to edit your article before submitting it to us.
What we don’t publish:
- Topics that have already been covered on our blog before
- Anything that is too promotional
- Articles whose only purpose is to get a backlink
- General “how to be more productive” type of articles
- Superficial “best apps” type of listicles – if you want to write such an article, make sure you review min. 50 apps and add lots of details
