Second, it must make FormulaWP look good, bring us quality traffic, and add to the totality of the value and information we provide. And third, it must make you, the author, look good. The best way to do that is to provide the best written article that helps the most people in a meaningful and actionable way. Bring the thunder and lightning, and people will seek you out, visit your site, see what you can do, and hire you.

Fun and personality is important to us. We think everything in life should be enjoyable, especially this blog. So do your best to inject your own voice, some humor, and interesting stuff into your article. Let your hair down, let your freak flag fly, and teach some super awesome badass ninja stuff. We are teaching while telling a compelling story. We aren’t writing instruction manuals or sleep-inducing white papers. Dazzle, fascinate, entertain.

That is up to you, and we only will get involved in the editorial process once you have a completed article for submission. We suggest reading several articles from our blog to get a sense for what we want and will accept. We suggest you first decide on the topic, then create an outline, then write a first draft, and then spend several days editing the article to make the writing as good as possible. A good structure would be: attention grabbing headline, define the problem, pose the solution, describe the benefits for acting on the forth-coming solution, provide the solution in a detailed step-by-step format, wrap-up and summarize what was covered. You will need to submit your article in a Microsoft Word or Apples Pages document format, so makes sense to compose your article in one of those programs to start.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Step 2: Collect Your Images and Related Media” title_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 0%)” text_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 43%)” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(123, 100%, 34%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”25px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(123, 100%, 34%)” graphic_icon=”image” graphic_animation=”bounceInDown” style=”text-align: justify;”]Images (and other types of media such as videos) are an essential part of all FormulaWP blog posts.

In the folder place the following items:
[1] Your article in either Microsoft Word .doc or .docx, or Apple Pages .pages format. The article should be written and formatted as you’d like to see it displayed on the blog. Use heading, sub-heading, bold, italic, and color styling as you’d like. Make it look awesome.
[2] Your intended Featured Image with dimensions of 800px wide by 600px tall in either JPEG or PNG format. The Featured Image will be the image seen on our blog index page with the title and a short excerpt of your article, so make it something that grabs the reader’s attention.
[3] All of your original images at full size and resolution in either JPEG or PNG format. Additionally, we request you give all of your images file names that will help identify their order in your article and describe image for improved SEO. A good image file name would be, for example: Image-1-Man-Walking-Dog-Forest-Lake-Morning.jpg.
[4] Your Author Bio including all the contact information you want to display publicly where readers can contact you — this can include one website or blog URL, an email address, and up to three social media accounts. Author Bio is limited to a maximum of 200 words.

Once you’ve assembled everything into your folder, Zip it up and proceed to the next step.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Step 5: Submit Your Article” title_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 0%)” text_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 43%)” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(123, 100%, 34%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”25px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(123, 100%, 34%)” graphic_icon=”external-link-square” graphic_animation=”bounceInDown” style=”text-align: justify;”]Use the Guest Blogger Submission Form found below to submit your relevant information and the article itself including all images and media.
