We’re a reasonable bunch and we don’t expect too much, but what we do ask for is:
- Articles to be no shorter than 1,200 words

- A short bio (200 characters or less)
Also, individual contributions shouldn’t promote your company’s products or services. For that sort of stuff, we have sponsorship opportunities. See below for these opportunities!
Step 3: Submit your work
Fire your content over – you can find our Content Lead, Grace, or our Content Associate, Hannah, in the community Slack channel or, if you'd prefer, you can drop us a good old-fashioned email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to include the link/attachment to your article along with your profile pic and bio - if you’re not already set up as a contributor, that is.
Already published something awesome elsewhere?
Not a problem. With custom canonical links, you can still share it with our audience too.
Yawn 💤 time for the boring bits…
