For guest blog entries
Blog entries are different from articles–blog readers tend to be “skimmers” who prefer their material short and easy to read. Blog entries are usually more personal and include links to outside information sources.
Please take note of the following as you write guest blog entries.
- Own your voice and write like you speak. Be engaging, clear and specific.
- Share your personal expertise and experience. Write from your heart and address readers directly.
- Keep posts between 200 and 700 words.
- Use bullets or lists to make your entry easier for readers to “scan.”
- Include live hyperlinks that point readers to credible, useful information on other websites.
- Photos bring blogs to life. Look for royalty-free images on the web.
Regardless of whether you’re submitting an article or blog entry, please note the following:
- Submit the item in Microsoft Word document form, single spaced.
- Submit a bio of no more than 200 words and a photo in jeg format.
- By submitting the entry and any related images you are vouching that it is original, that you hold the copyright to the content and that it has not been published previously.
