Our editorial mission is to help webmasters prosper and grow. We do this by publishing relevant and engaging blogs, articles, guides and newsletters, all delivered electronically by experienced and talented contributors.
Write or Blog For Us
We’re looking for guest contributors to submit articles and posts to our site. Could this be you?
Authors looking for guest post opportunities are always welcome at our site to do multiple articles. Our guest bloggers include a broad range of writers with experience as blog or website owners, web developers or web designers, and freelance content writers.
Whether you have an idea for a stand-alone post or want to do a series, we want to hear from you.
We deliver the highest-quality content for our community. Our guidelines provide the necessary information for you to get started on your article.
What are we looking for?
We’re searching out experts in niches who get web design and development, and digital marketing; they have real-world business knowledge in the forms of relevant experience, insights, case studies and best practices that they want to share with others.
If this is you, as well as significant experience and a strong background in the topics you want to write about, you must be able to communicate your ideas to our readers effectively.
Your articles should be 100% original and 100% enjoyable.
Here’s info about us that you need to know:
- 1. We’re looking for topics that include web design and development, freelancing, content marketing, social media, eCommerce, web hosting, SEO, WordPress, business, entrepreneurship, and other related subjects.
- 2. Our audience is made up of web designers and developers, online marketers, creative entrepreneurs and freelancers looking to learn something new and improve their skills. We’re sorry, but we’ll just ignore your email if you pitch an idea that isn’t relevant to our audience. Like you, we’re crunched for time so we can’t reply to submissions that just run a vague idea by us and ask if we’re interested. Send us all the information you have to support your article proposal, and if you have a blog post, case study or anything else online, give us the URL.
- 3. If you have more than one idea for an article, by all means, cover them all (with all the detail that you have) in the same email. For a series of articles, explain how your story/how-to/argument etc. builds from the first article through to the last.
- 4.Content Readability Score and Grade Level: your text should aim for a readability score between 60-70 and a grade level of around 8 to be read by the general public.
