Wanna submit a guest post?

Awesome – we can’t wait to start reading your original, informative, well researched and beneficial article. Just check down below for a few tips to get you started.

If you have exceptional writing and/or design skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of developers, marketers, growth hackers, and business owners, we’d love to hear from you.

Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer most, if not all, questions you have about what kind of content we’re really excited about and how to get your content published.

Okay. So a tip or two…

If you’re interested in guest posting, please make sure it is a case study or a complete guide on how to do anything related to

  • development,
  • social media marketing,
  • personal productivity hacks,
  • networking,
  • job searching 

or any other relevant category currently featured in this blog.

Guest posting here is NOT for the purpose of building links for your SEO.

It is squarely for the purpose of building business networks. For this reason I would appreciate content that is really informative and seeks to help others grow.

The Bare Essentials for Every Post We Publish

Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about the world of technology, business, networking, job searching, programming and personal productivity.

While we tend to skew toward content about specific personal productivity hacks, that’s not all we talk about.

We’re also interested in publishing any topic that developers care about, which includes things like hiring, team development, job hunting, writing, design, math, and larger internet trends, among other things.

We also look for a few things in everything we publish:

  • Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere including on your blog.
  • Article reflects the writing style/tone of the Tech Blog. We aim to be casual, yet helpful, and typically we stay away from buzzwords and jargon.
  • Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
  • No more than one link to your company’s website in the body of the post.
  • Include at least 1-3 images in your article. Make it easy to digest.
  • Make sure you get straight to the point and that your content fits the audience.
  • Your post should have at least 1400-2000 words to be considered.

The Different Post Types We Accept

We’ve conducted extensive studies to uncover which types of blog posts work — and which don’t. Here are some of our most successful blog post types:

  • Canonical: These posts give readers in-depth tactical takeaways that are supported by relevant, recent examples, original quotes, original graphics, and current data. While we don’t like to put a word count on our posts, these tend to run at 1,500 words and above. When readers finish this type of post, they should be able to immediately execute on the given topic and have very few questions left on how to do it.
  • Graphics: These posts rely heavily on an infographic or SlideShare created by the author. Usually, they feature a few paragraphs of introduction, the embedded media itself, and not much else. The graphic should be comprehensive and easy to read, have a compelling narrative, contain plenty of white space, and feature up-to-date data that’s properly sourced.
  • TOFU: These posts are created with broad, top-of-the-funnel traffic in mind. They’re usually related to larger internet trends or business-related topics, and are lighter in nature. There are also very few tactical lessons that can be taken away from them.

While we certainly may publish posts that don’t fall into any of those categories, your post has the best chance of being accepted if it matches one of these formats.
