The more images you can provide, the better. Please ensure you have the necessary copyright license to publish the images.
You Must Write on a Very SPECIFIC Topic
Please do not pitch us or submit general topics. Instead, settle on a very specific topic so that you can cover it in-depth.
For example, don’t submit a “10 Kitchen Design Tips” article. That’s far too broad. Instead, submit an article all about kitchen farm sinks. The more specific and detailed, the better.
Round-ups and listicles are typically rejected.

How long should your article be?
At the very minimum, your article should be 750 words, but in our experience in order to adequately cover topics related to home and garden, 1,200 to 3,000 words is necessary.
How many images should you provide?
We don’t have anything set in stone, but 10 is good for a portfolio (the more the merrier). If your article is text-based, 5 plus images is a good start. We like using images as examples to illustrate points made in articles. The more the merrier.
Quality is Paramount
Sadly, we reject far more articles than we end up publishing. If you submit an article to us, please ensure it’s excellent, unique and that you have the license to publish all images provided to us. It should be the best article on the Web for that topic. This is not a joke. It must be incredible.
Your article must exhaustively cover the topic. If there are aspects missing from the coverage, we may reject the article.
Please use proper heading tags such as h2, h3, etc. The first heading should be h2. The sub-heading h3 and so on. The next main heading should be h2 again.
Whenever it makes sense, please use bullet lists.
