Proven Strategies for Writing Excellent Content
- The first paragraph is the most important – use it to capture your reader’s attention.
- Tell stories to communicate your message!
- Utilize numbered lists to get more attention. For example: “4 Things I Learned During my First Year of Fatherhood” or “Ten Great Family Tips to Try Today”
- Give your readers practical tips that they can implement into their lives.
- Remember that your audience is busy moms and dads – your content should be readable, interesting, and relevant.
- Keep paragraphs short, and use bolded subheadings where appropriate.
- Send us high-resolution personally owned or public domain images (.jpg format) to accompany your article. Include the link for any images you get from the internet.
- For your author bio, submit a picture of yourself and a 1-2 sentence description of yourself, your family, and your life’s involvements.
