Content Guidelines

Full disclosure of vendor / industry relationships is required at all times, and our editors reserve the right to withhold publication of self-promotional content and links, as well as make significant edits to content and headlines.

Write an informative, friendly article that ANSWERS THE QUESTION.

Properly cite and attribute 3­-10 great sources in the body of the article (linking to them with a link).

If possible, find a source that is an actual expert. If not, cite a good, authoritative publication or website. ExampleAccording to Dr. John Doe, cats sometimes eat grass because of such and such reasons that are supported by x, x, and x facts.

  • NO FILLER LANGUAGE.
  • Tone: “The Friendly Expert”: friendly, but highly informative and fact­-dense. Actionable.
  • Use first and second person: “I,” “we,” and “you”. Use the word “you” frequently to help the reader connect with the story
  • Answer the question/topic with GOOD information from CREDIBLE sources
  • Break the article into natural headings/sections to make it easier to read (a 700-900 word article should have 4-5 sections)
  • Use H2, H3, and H4 tags for headings
  • No more than 3 lines per paragraph
  • Word Count: 1200 – 3000 words
