The most successful story is written about what you know and have experienced. People are looking to get to know YOU – your life, your experience, your story.
The tone in which you’ll talk to readers should be “write as you would talk”. It’s kinda like you’ve just pulled up a chair to their kitchen table for a great conversation. They want to hear YOUR voice.
To keep from being like Uncle Fred who rambles on and on, it’s a good idea to keep your article under 1,000 words. And if you have pictures to go along with your story, we’d love to add those, too!
So what types of writing are we looking for? Lots of topics except erotica. We don’t want to offend our readers, so if you wouldn’t talk about it in front of your grandmother, chances are that’s not a great topic for us to post.
Personal Essay Life/Family
Fleeting Moments that changed your life
Food: Recipes, etc. Health Gardening How-To
Current Events Technology
Chronicles of Aging
*Experts can be either credentialed, or have a title within the company they work, in the field in which they claim expertise.
