Guidelines & Details to Submit:
Please upload a well-written, edited article that is between 500 – 2000 words in a Word Document or PDF file format.
Your article should be original (never published) educational, inspirational, motivational, informative or story-telling in some way. The reader should walk away with a feeling they gained something, NOT feeling like they were ‘sold to.’ We will not publish articles that are a ‘sales pitch’ for your product or service. Provide written value and they will seek out your services.
In the body of your article, you can include one outbound link. If you have multiple links or sources, only 1 will be hyperlinked so please be sure to specify in the “Comments” field in the template below.
Our blog theme has strict image requirements and if you choose to submit a Featured Image with your article, they MUST be rectangular with a 3:2 ratio and not contain text. You’re welcome to submit an image, but typically we provide our own Main Featured Image for several reasons. If you submit an image and we do not use it, we will do our best to find another image that is aligned with the one you submitted. Images for the BODY of your article are awesome! We welcome images depicting visuals of what you are writing about. Its best if you have one every 300 words.
Videos to accompany an article are a great and you can add your video in the form. Please be sure it is uploaded to YouTube.
If you are submitting for a blog series, ALL articles in your series must be submitted in order for your series to be scheduled. A series would be defined as a minimum of 3, maximum of 7 articles surrounding one topic or theme. Writing a series is a great way to position yourself as an expert in the area of wellness & creativity that you represent. Please fill out the blog form for each article in your series and specify which part in the series it represents. (Part 1, Part 2, etc.)
