You’re welcome to republish on your blog, as long as you set up the canonical tag on the post.
We understand life gets in the way sometimes. You can write as often or as little as you’d like. Most of our writers have full-time jobs and write for us on the side.
As long as your tone isn’t negative and you don’t bash others, you can maintain your unique voice. We encourage you to be informal (as long as you’re not too informal) and conversational in your style.
We work hard to maintain the quality of posts on our blog. To avoid the possibility of getting rejected, we ask that you avoid making any of these mistakes.
