Submit an Article

We welcome guest articles, and we invite YOU to submit yours. Really!

We’re always looking for personal self-improvement stories or original thoughts on any self-improvement topic.

We do not accept anything pornographic, racist, homophobic, derogatory or just downright mean!  We’re not really interested in product pitches or MLMs. We will, occasionally, post a paid -promotional article. While we don’t have a problem with self-promotion, keep the links in line with the content and don’t be spammy about it. We reserve the right to refuse any article that we don’t think fits the parameters of the blog.

We love guest articles that are well written, contain correct spelling and grammar, and are prepared for Search Engine Optimization  (SEO). You work hard on the article, and you have things to say that help others, so make it the most readable article you can. If you are a grammar drop-out or if English is not your first language, I recommend that you get a program such as Grammarly to help you polish your article and submit something that readers enjoy. And, if you do not use Grammarly, please at least use Spellcheck. You can try Grammarly for free at https://grammarly.com
