Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about the world of technology.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
- Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
- We aim to be casual, yet helpful, and typically we stay away from buzzwords and jargon.
- Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
- No more than one link to your company’s website in the body of the post.
Before your submit an article, please note that:
- The content must be original and cannot be republished elsewhere on the web.
- Your articles may be edited prior to publishing.
- If you use an image or quote text from another source, always give full credit with an hyperlink. Never attempt to rehash someone else’s content or idea.
- While there’s no such thing as “optimal” word length as it may vary depending upon the topic, guest posts should have at least 300 words or more.
- Include screenshots with your articles and each image should include a caption. Use the PNG format for screenshots and they should be 540 pixels wide.
- Do not publish negative reviews – if you think a product has no good features, better not write about that product on the blog.
- As far as possible, avoid using too much jargon.
- If you are planning to cover news that is already well known on the Internet, add thoughtful analysis to your story or explore it from an angle that other publications may have missed.
All contributions will be reviewed by the editor and content that matches (or exceeds) the site’s existing standards will be promoted on the main blog.
What We Won’t Accept
There are some things we simply can’t accept:
- Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme.
- Anything that’s too promotional for your company or organization.
- Anything that’s offensive or inaccurate.
- Anything that’s overly critical of individuals or companies — this is not a site to air grievances.
Should I send a proposal first?
We may not access every submission and it is therefore recommended that you send us a brief outline of what you plan to write so that you don’t spend time writing about stuff that has already been covered or is not suitable for publishing on the site.
As a guest writer, you won’t be paid for your contributions but this opportunity can help get more exposure for your blog or your brand on the Internet. All guest articles will include a brief bio of the author and a link to his or her website for some extra publicity.
