And The Team At Writer’s Relief
P.S. Did you know that Writer’s Relief is available for guest blogging or interviews on YOUR blog? Just contact us!
- Before you submit, do a search on our blog to see if we’ve covered your topic before. We’re always looking for fresh, new takes on the fundamentals! But be sure that your article brings something new to the table.
- This is not an opportunity for autobiographical self-promotion. If the information offered in your article is helpful, readers will want to learn more about you. But the article itself shouldn’t be “the story of why I’m awesome.” If you do tell your story, make sure it has substantial, practical, concrete applications that our readers need.
- Link it up. Link your article to articles on similar topics that we’ve already written (find a slew of them here organized by topic). Why? We want to give our readers every advantage. If you link to third-party sites, they must be professional and appropriate. If you link to your own sites, see point #2.
- Keep it light. Our readers are busy people. They’re not looking for long-winded prose and paragraphs that you could use to prop open a door. Share your ideas in an upbeat and honest way, as if you’re talking to a good friend. Short paragraphs, succinct sentences, and a light touch will always win our hearts.
- Less is more. Give our readers a lot of information in as few words as possible.
- Make up a great title for your article. We want you to catch our eye!
