​​Blog writing tips and submission guidelines: 

  • Before you start writing, you need to decide what you would like to cover in the blog. Craft a great headline and sub-headline that readers can’t resist. Thinking about a headline first will give you a roadmap or an outline to follow.​
  • A blog is written in an informal or conversational style, not in the form of a news or a feature.
  • Introductory and concluding paragraphs should be strong enough to attract readers' attention. Add a call to action at the end, if needed.​
  • The ideal length of a blog is between 300 and 600 words.
  • You can submit up to three images with captions and credits, if any. We need at least one image for the banner.​ 
  • Share your profile photo with a boiler or brief profile [The author is…] – within 50 words. 
  • The team usually responds within 3 weeks if a blog sbumission is accepted.
