Please be sure to include the following information within your text:

  • Title of the blog post, set in bold.
  • Your name directly below the title.
  • A link to your twitter, Facebook or social media profiles (optional, but it will greatly help us to cross promote your post)
  • A headshot (optional, but recommended)
  • An image linking to our post topic. Images can not include product brands.
  • A caption for your image, including the photographer’s name.
  • The source and rights to use your image in one of the following ways: Proof of creative commons, including link to source of image. Written permission (e-mail is OK) from the photographer of your image and any copyright information in brackets.
  • Proof of the rights to use the person photographed in marketing materials: Written permission (e-mail is OK) if the person is over 18. Written permission from a parent or guardian (e-mali is OK) if the person is under 18.
  • A brief author’s biography of no more than three sentences.

NOTE on Images: All images must be submitted along with the manuscript as separate, high-resolution (at least 300 dpi) image files, such as .JPG, .TIF, or .EPS files. We cannot accept image files in formats such as Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Do not embed image files within the submission, submit separate image files instead.

NOTE on Links: In general, if you are referencing from something which exists online, it is preferable to use in-text links. Links should be descriptive. Avoid using the word ‘link’ in brackets after a sentence or linking from the word ‘here’, where an alternative is possible.
