Never blogged before? Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from getting started! If you read this page and still need some support to help email [email protected] We will review your Instagram feed and help you out with some ideas to get started.
Relevant, Unique Topics
Some of our readers favorite topics are:
- Bullet Journaling
- Hand Lettering
- Crafts / DIY
Lots of screenshots and step-by-step tutorials make for a post with impact! If you are submitting a seasonally-relevant or holiday specific post, be sure to submit at least 45 days prior to the holiday so we can get into the editorial calendar.
We will edit your post and we may change the title. Please know that our edits are not a judgment on your writing! We want to make sure that every post gets the best possible exposure, and we make our edits with that goal in mind. Major revisions or suggestions may be sent back to you.
Our site requires that every post have at least 3 original images (but we always love more!). Images must be at least 1000px wide – ideally uncropped and unedited. Only upload photos that you own. Images found on Google Image, Flickr, Pinterest, etc are not permitted.
Your post should be a minimum of 300 words. Be succinct but provide enough detail for someone who is more of a novice than yourself. Use headings or steps to break up a lengthier post.
Your bio should be 3 to 4 sentences about who you are and what you’re all about. We recommend including a link to your blog as well as your Instagram handle. Author bios appear at the bottom of the post along with a headshot.
Your headshot (which can be any photo of you) should be at least 150px wide and 150px tall. We crop into a circle shape when inserting into the box.
- Put your article in a word, rtf, or google doc format. Either indicate where you want your images to be placed, or put them right in the document (you’ll still need to upload them separately)
- Put all of your images in a folder and zip it
