Guest Writer Guidelines
Submit Original Posts: Posts must be unique and original to Better Days Global. Posts must not have been published or submitted elsewhere online or offline (including your personal blog) or be used in future for distribution on other sites (including your personal blog).
Bring Your Unique Voice & Passion: We share a wide range of topics and have a large body of material available to our community. You can add value to this existing collection by bringing your own unique voice and views, infused with your passion and personality. Please write from your heart, based on personal experience and/or professional expertise, and please write as if you're talking to a friend. The more down-to-earth the better. People love to feel like they're reading something written by a real person, with real experience in life, and a genuine heart.
Choose a Great Title: People have so much selection available to them for what to read online. They choose quickly (within seconds) what articles to open, and your article title is what will help them decide. When choosing a title, think about the reader and what they’re looking to learn, discover, achieve, or the problem they want to solve, and then write your title to clearly speak to their need.
Use a Captivating Opening Statement: A reader will be captivated, or not, within the first few sentences of an article. Please ensure your opening paragraph is engaging, tells the reader exactly what they are about to experience and makes them want to read on as they know they are about to gain benefit.
Logical & Succinct: In the body of your article…
Word Count – Please submit articles of at least 600 words.
Sub-Headings – Please split up your content with relevant sub headings to make it easier for readers to follow the logical flow of ideas.
Short Paragraphs – So readers can easily digest your awesome article, please keep paragraphs short and succinct (2-3 sentences each).
At Least One Actionable Item.
Accurately Quote Sources: If your article references data, facts, statistics or studies, please be sure to include a link to a verified and credible source. Put the link in brackets in the appropriate place in your article (please don’t hyperlink the text).
We are not about content for content sake, nor about linking to create traffic. We’re on a real heart-led mission to give people worthwhile content to reflect on and/or apply, to genuinely add value to a better life and a better world. Our site is not about popularity, it is about impact. Don't send SEO-boosted or promotional articles: We cannot accept articles that are designed to boost SEO, to plug a brand name, or to promote yourself, or any product or service. Instead, provide an article with life-enhancing content for our community and let them naturally flow through to follow you and discover more about your work in the world based on genuine connection.
Tone of Articles
One of our values at Better Days Global is that we are a community where everyone is welcome and no one is left behind. We do everything in love, humility and compassion. We welcome people of all countries, ethnicities, cultures, creeds and beliefs, as we believe that our differences are what make us uniquely special. We are a space for you to have your unique voice, and to do so in a way that appreciates our mission, values and ethos. Please ensure your tone is inspiring, informative, open hearted, inclusive and positive. Please help our readers to grow through whatever messages you share.
We do not endorse negativity, dictatorial, or polarizing approaches that create division. We hope you agree that society is in need of the direct opposite of this old-paradigm and negative energy. So as a guest writer we invite you to contribute and collaborate with us in bringing a different vibe to the world!
Let's embrace all people and be solutions focused.
