Contributor Guidelines

DUE DATE: Please upload your copy and article picture on the 1st of each month in to the Contributors Folder. We will send you a link in a forthcoming email. (Posts are due the 1st of the month prior to the  posting month, i.e., 1st of July for August article.) 

WORD COUNT:  About 400-800 words is the ideal length for an online article or blog.  (We know this is pretty short and struggle with this ourselves on our blogs, but this is what the experts say online readers are willing to read. If you feel this is impossible, your article could be split into a couple of parts. Let’s talk!)

PHOTOS: Please upload at least one photo to accompany your article. jpeg format preferred, 600 dpi).

Digital photos can be personal or obtained online from sites such as CreationSwap, Photo Pin, Stock Free Images, Flickr.  Please be sure you give credit to the source/artist. If you have not mastered sending digital photos, please contact us and we can discuss.
