Guest Article Format
Please stick to the format when you send your article and read these guidelines. This will help us get your article posted more quickly.
- Title – This should be a short as possible but still tell readers what the post is about.
- First sentence – Choose your first sentence with care as this is shown on the front page of the site and becomes the META description tag of the article and affects search engine search result rankings.
- Article Text - Use bold and italics for emphasis. Structure with paragraphs. Bullets and numbered lists often get a better response from readers.
- Subheadings – Use H3 tags for subheadings.
- External Link policy – Links which add to the usefulness of the article for readers are allowed. All links are do-follow. Articles with links that are not related to the article will not be published.
- Images - Add a suitable image as it helps to get a better reader response. Search Flickr with Creative Commons license for suitable images. Ensure images are no wider than 500 px. Indicate source of image for credits.
- Author Byline – Provide a brief bio we can add at the end of your piece, including how people can contact you. This can include one link to information about you .
- Copyright – the article (text, diagrams) must be your own work and you must be the copyright owner.
- References should be in Vancouver.
- Length – 500-1000 words, but contact us if you are outside this.
- Format - our preferred format is Word, but submissions can be written in Open Office or Rich Text Format. If you wish to submit in another format please contact us first.
- We reserve the right to edit your article to fit our audience.
- Remember, you know what your original Word attachment was, but we get lots of email so please always resend the whole document with the amendments requested included.
