What are we looking for?

You need to get readers hooked from the first few lines of your article, so make sure they stand out and grab the reader’s attention immediately.
We get hundreds of articles sent to us each week, make yours unique and creative so it is distinctive from the rest. We don’t want to publish 100s of articles on the same subject do we? Because who would want to read that.
Don’t Overdo It
Make the reader feel that this is a conversation between you and them rather than a boring article with lots of information being thrown at them.
People like to read happy endings and articles with a positive vibe. So, please make them Up-beat rather than depressing. No one visits a tech blog to read about the dangers of technology.
We require high quality, authentic and credible articles. We believe in providing our readers with information that is true, well researched and not plagiarized. Articles that are copied or information that is not backed up by credible sources would not meet our standards.
The purpose of the “write for us” section is to provide our readers with information regarding the latest technological trends and tech related information such as gadget reviews, etc. We want to provide our audience with information that is valuable and beneficial to them.
Be engaging and fun. This is a tech blog, which can often become boring because of the extensive information that can be included, we need lots of information but presented in unique ways. So make your blog fun and creative, have a conversation with the reader rather than just throwing information that their brain is unable to register. Keep in mind the type of website you are writing for and the audience that we have.
A decent article should consist of 500-1000 words. Anything under 300 words is lacking informative content and anything beyond 1000 words is too long to grab reader’s attention. However, we do understand that different types of articles have different word count requirements, e.g. a 450 word blog is decent whilst a 450 word informative article is too short. So we can be flexible on word count as long as it meets the standard requirements of the type of write up.
You are presenting arguments, back them with credible sources, we do not want to publish information that is misleading or absurd. Quote your references using hyperlinks or insert name of author, date of publication that you are using as a source. This also helps you escape plagiarism
Use proper headings and subheadings, follow a format and submit the article through Microsoft Word. If you want to become a blogger it is important that you are professional because otherwise you won’t be getting too far. A little extra effort goes a long way.
You know what makes us cringe? Bad grammar. So please, please, I cannot elaborate enough on this point enough, proof read your article and check for any grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or incorrect sentence structure. If you want to become a blogger this is the first commandment of a bloggers bible. READ BEFORE SUBMISSION!
