Hey guys! So a few days ago we mentioned that we would be doing a special announcement this weekend, which may have something to do with a feature of our blog that we’ve been having trouble implementing. Well we’re happy to tell you that we’ve found a way to do that feature that fans have been asking for, and that feature happens to be Guest Posts! So here’s the deal on what you’ll have to do:
First; in order to submit a guest post to the blog, just head to our Contact Us page and give us the title of your post or article. We are a ‘nerd-centric’ blog so any title that you submit must have something to do with the anime industry, video games, conventions or Japanese culture (i.e. J-Pop). Top Five and Top Ten submissions are fine too, as long as they’re about the aforementioned categories above.
After you’ve submitted your title, give us a brief summary of what your topic is about. If it catches our interest here’s what to do next!
Second; submit your post or article to us via email. Your post or article must be submitted in one of these formats; .doc, .docx, or .txt in order for us to post it on our blog. The file name that we receive your post from must be tagged as “Author Name – Article Title”. If you want us to add pictures, be sure to attach them to your email along with your submission. We’ll do an overview of your article to make sure there are no grammatical errors and that it meets our usual standards, then afterwards we’ll let you know if and when your article gets selected and posted on our blog and give you credit as well.
Third and finally; make sure you have through knowledge of the topic that you are writing about. As far as your writing style, do what makes you happy n’ free! When we write our articles and posts we write as if we’re having a real conversation with the reader, so if you wanna take a page out of our playbook, be our guest!
There is a limit on how many guest posts that we’ll be selecting to put on our blog every month; that monthly limit is 16. Once we’ve selected the 16 guest posts that will go up on our blog, we will not accept any new submissions until the very next month. We’ll accept submissions up until the last day of the month.
That will do it for this announcement, so if you’ve got an article that you want us to submit just head to our Contact Us page and pitch us the title of your article. We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with! 😉
