Groundation Writer Guidelines

The Basics. The Post…

  • must be original and should not have been published elsewhere online already.
  • must be useful to the readers of this blog.
  • should be simple. If you have lots of ideas for one post, save them for new posts!
  • must be grammatically correct and well-written.
  • must not be entirely self-promotional.
  • can be flexible in length. Consider 250 -1000 words as a guideline depending on your purpose. 

Please Include…

  • a suggested title.
  • a brief author’s bio (approx. 50 words).
  • links, where applicable, not simply marketing-related links.
  • may include links to your website and blog in author’s bio.
  • must include a photo of yourself to include with your bio.

Formatting Preferences for Readability

  • Use subheadings in the post body  
  • Use short paragraphs and/or bullet points 

Image Requirements

  • Images are worth a thousand words, we strongly encourage you to include images/video with your posts
  • All images/video should be properly attributed and credited. Even Creative Commons licensed photos require attribution, so include a link at the bottom of the post to the photographer’s website.

Deadlines are just that…Deadlines

  • Stick to the schedule agreed upon. Communicate at least 24 hours ahead of time, if your post will not be on time. 

Our Editorial Policies
