Our Mission here at TechieLiving is to help seniors take full advantage of Smart Technology Solutions that may be applicable and useful in their everyday lives, provide Smart Living Solutions to seniors that wish to Age in Place, maintain their independence for as long as they can, as well as their family members and caregivers to maintain contact and give support in the most effective way.
If you relate to and would like to contribute to our mission, have applicable knowledge or opinions, and can write in a way our readers would appreciate, then we would be delighted to have you write for us a post from time to time. We encourage creativity and are not interested in same-old/same-old articles (that often start with “7 tips for …”).
To maintain quality we set the bar high so please realize that not all articles submitted are accepted for publication. We do rate each submission on a 5 point scale and only publish the 5 pointers. Even quite good submissions may not get published. We do not have the time to correct multiple typos or grammatical mistakes so please realize that this may also be a reason for not publishing what you submit.
Your post appearing here could bring you added online visibility and other worthwhile contacts. To help you get an understanding of what is involved, we have some suggested guidelines.
Contributor Guidelines for the TechieLiving website
None of these rules are absolute. They may be amended from time to time. If any create problems for you, please discuss with us.
The acceptance of a contributor post is entirely at the discretion of TechieLiving. Minor edits or typo corrections will be done without referring to the author. If more significant editing is required, then the author will be contacted prior to any such editing. Changes may be made to the Title and minor changes to the text to give improved search engine visibility without materially changing the sense of what is written. In offering an article to us, you accept that if we publish the article then we will own the copyright of what is published.
Your proposed article should adhere to the following rules:
- Content should be without grammatical and spelling errors and should be laid out in an attractive format for the reader. Normally a post will be at least 500 words.
- The content should be original and not be copied elsewhere on the Internet and should not be offensive. It also should not be unduly self-promotional.
- Images are useful and should be provided with adequate resolution and at least 750 pixels in width. Images should be free to be published with a link to the source if needed, e.g. Flickr.
The author name will precede the blog post and a paragraph about the author will be displayed at the end of the post. We only publish articles where there is a named author. An article with a single link in the author’s bio to the author’s profile or his or her own website is allowed. Please note that we are following the Google Webmaster Tools guidelines and therefore such a link has the nofollow tag assigned to it. Any links within the article should be to websites unrelated to the author.
Links to commercial companies or keyword text links to your associated websites cannot be accepted in contributor posts but can appear in articles by paying advertising fees.
Promoting your Article
If you do write for us, the only thing we ask of you is to support your articles by sharing them on your own blog, if you have one, and through social media such as Facebook, and Twitter. Each post has buttons at the foot which require only a click to share the post.
