Guest Writer Guidelines
Below are some simple guidelines for those interested in guest writing for Our Happy Planet. So please look over the information and message us if you have any questions. We want to share your voice among our readers and look forward to working with you!
Submit Unique Content: Any articles submitted to Our Happy Planet must be original content not shared anywhere else. No plagiarism! This also means articles submitted to our environmental blog have not been published or even submitted to other online publications, including the writers’ personal blog.
Captivate Readers Early: Using a captivating opening statement within the first couple sentences is critical in keeping a reader interested. This means writers need to really focus on making the first paragraph of an article awesome.
Create A Great Title: The internet is flooded with content, and that is why it is important to have a catchy title that can grab the attention quickly of a reader. Most people browsing articles will make a decision within seconds if they are going to click on an article so make sure the title is something that would stop a reader.
Be Your Unique Self: What makes your writing special is that it brings your unique voice and passion to our community. That means do not be afraid to write in a style that is brash, sarcastic, funny, or educational. Don’t be afraid to write from the heart and share personal experiences or anecdotes. Articles are not required to be drafted in a fashion that would suit a scientific blog. Write as if you’re talking to a friend, speaking in front of a group, or any way that is authentic to your voice. In fact, people prefer articles that are filled with real life experiences and stories.
Blog Word Count Best Practice
Articles submitted to Our Happy Planet should be at lest 700 words and be organized with sub-headings. Short paragraphs and bullet points are also helpful to readers. However, the most important thing is that articles should have an actionable item. That means an article should include one or more questions to either prompt a reader to think differently about a particular topic, or provide a real-world, practical tip for the reader so they can make the change in their life.
Insert A Video From YouTube: Writers contributing to the Our Happy Planet environmental blog are welcome to insert a YouTube video into the article when it is relevant to the content. In fact, YouTube videos are a great way to better connect with readers and can improve the quality of a post.
Choose Reputable Sources: When a writer chooses to reference data, statistics, or other information from research studies it is critical to choose reputable sources. Scientific journals, credible newspapers and other verified sources should be chosen when referencing data or stats. Our Happy Planet does request that a link to the data source be included in the content.
Review Content: Please take a moment to proofread content before submitting it for review. That means making sure spelling is correct, grammar looks good, and the tone of the article is what you want it to be.
