What rules do the writers need to follow?

  • We like our articles short and sweet. But at the same time, we look at a length which is not too small (less than 700 words) and not too long (more than 2500 words). Of course, this is just a guideline and not a strict rule and each article would be judged according to its useful content.
  • The articles should convey a complete story. Should have acceptable levels of grammar and punctuation.
  • We really don’t like plagiarism. And we respect copyright law. So do ensure no parts of the article are copied from another source. Also ensure that you don’t copy articles published here!
  • Images tend to add meaning and value to the article. Try to submit freely available pictures 735 pixels in width. If you like a picture on 123rf.com, send us a link or a picture ID and we will buy it legally. If there is picture from another source, ensure you give credit to the source.
  • Please send the article in .doc, .docx formats to make it easier for us to upload them.
  • And we would love to publish your biographical information (in 150 to 250 characters), a profile picture, and a link to your website. This would mean all your efforts are recognized and you get clear visibility for them.
  • Remember, because we need to follow internal and external policies, we will be removing, editing text and links in time. But we will notify you regarding the changes. And we wouldn’t be publishing all the articles sent in, we will be judging each in terms of quality and content.

Articles Styles – HTML tags

We use HTML tags that work like the Styles feature in Microsoft Office. And it is pretty simple, even for those who have very little experience with HTML. So if you use these tags, we can publish your articles much faster.

For Paragraphs:

The <p> tag defines a paragraph. So use a <p> with the brackets to start a paragraph and < /p > at end of the paragraph, just like the picture below. Don’t forget the / sign in the end tag.

So anything within a<p> tag

  • <p> This is some text in a paragraph. </p>

Will appear in the browser as

  • This is some text in a paragraph.

To Emphasize Text:

Use the < strong> tag at the start of the important text and < /strong> at end of it.

So anything within a<strong> tag

  • <p> This is some <strong> bold text a</strong> in a paragraph. </p>

Will appear in the browser as

  • This is some bold text in a paragraph.

For Quotes:

Use < blockquote> at start and < /blockqoute> at the end to emphasize a quotation or quote.

So anything within a<blockquote>tag

  • <blockquote> This is a quote. </blockqoute>

Will appear in the browser as

This is a quote.

For Headings:

Enclose any heading in < h3> and < /h3> tags to use a heading stlye for your article.

So anything within a<h3> tag below

  • <h3> This is a heading. </h3>

Will appear in the browser as

  • This is a heading

Finally a sample:

If you are using tags like these in your article

<h3>Heading 1</h3>
<p>This is the first paragraph under Heading 1. </p>
<p>It can contain more than one paragraph. </p>

<h3>Heading 2</h3>
<p>The paragraph here contains <strong> bold</strong> text as well. </p>
<blockquote> We can have a quote in between. </blockquote>
<p>This is the last paragraph</p>

It will end up looking like this in a browser

Heading 1

This is the first paragraph under Heading 1.

It can contain more than one paragraph.

Heading 2

The paragraph here contains  bold text as well.

We can have a quote in between.

This is the last paragraph
