Blog Post Requirements
Check if your article complies with our editorial requirements:
- Submit articles in Google Docs. Use this template to format your text.
- Include no more than one link to your company or affiliated resource (blog, social profile, etc.) within the article.
- We don’t limit the word quantity on the blog posts, but most articles should fall in the 1,800-2,500 word range. It’s better to over-explain an idea than under-explain it.
- Your writing style should be accessible and clear. Use simple sentences instead of complex ones. Use your natural voice and avoid unnecessary filler words. And remember, the Active Voice is better than the Passive one.
- Paragraphs should be no more than 3-5 sentences long and formatted using H2s, H3s, and H4s as needed.
- Use bulleted and numbered lists to dilute your text visually.
- Always add a conclusion. The best way to wrap up is to give a checklist.
- Add the link to the source page when including images from other sources. The same rule applies to quotes, stats, and research results.
