Here’s What We’re Looking For
Connection: with our readers. Just write as if you were speaking to someone you know and were chatting with them over a coffee.
Practical: do you have something to say that a reader can take –away and apply immediately in their life. It doesn’t have to be 100 things, sometimes the one big takeaway is enough.
Length: no less than 700 and no more than 1,500 words.
Format: please submit your posts in a Word Document. If you can format them, size 12, Arial and use single spacing that would be great.
Headlines/Bullets: use them, it makes it easier to read online.
Personal Stories and Examples: these are great and connect with people on a deep level, as your story may be something they can really relate to, or it’s what they are experiencing in life right now.
Structure: this is up to you, however if you need a few guidelines you could:
- Start with the problem.
- Offer a personal story or an example
- Show understanding
- Offer solutions
- Takeaway on how to implement the solution
Original Content: the work must be your own, if you are referencing another article or pieces of research please include a link to that work.
Your Author Bio
