Answers to some frequently asked questions about guest blogging

How long should the article be?
Blog entries can be of any length; write the entry to the length it seems to want to be. A good target is 500 to 1500 words, but we often post entries that are much longer.

Do I need to include images?
Articles need to have at least one image, because including images makes articles more popular on social sharing websites. Feel free to suggest one that's already in our image library.

Will you edit the article?
Yes, we proofread articles before posting. Some get more heavily edited than others. If a post has been edited only lightly (fixing typos, spelling out acronyms, minor grammatical changes), we may post it without asking for your review. If your post is more heavily edited, we will provide you with the opportunity to review the post before we make it live.
