Before making a submission, take a few minutes to read these simple guidelines. Following them will greatly increase your chances of having your content published here.

  1. Please write in correct American English. The Yahoo Style Guide has some great information about writing for the web.

  2. Proofread carefully. We’re busy coding and supporting our clients. We don’t have much time for proofreading and editing.

  3. It would be appreciated if you could submit your work as a link to a document in Google Drive.

  4. If you can, submitting a range of work for us to choose from may increase your chance of success.

  5. We prefer unique content that hasn’t been previously published.

  6. We love original, opinionated, and even controversial material that shows the personality of the writer, but we also love logically argued, factually accurate and well evidenced content. Combine the two and you’ve got the perfect blog article.

  7. Please remember that our audience works in the hosting industry and is highly educated. Write your content accordingly.

  8. We prefer not to publish material that is entirely or predominantly promotional in nature. Mentioning your company or service in a wider context is fine; devoting your submission to marketing copy is not.

  9. Include an image that you’d like to see used with your post. We prefer Creative Commons-licensed images. Flickr is a great resource for finding images, especially if you use the Photo Pin image search engine. Make sure that the licence allows commercial use, and if you alter it –– by cropping or adding elements –– that it allows derivative works.

  10. Approximately square images are best.

Rules aside, we’d love to hear from you and have us join our blogging community, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
