Writing Guidelines for The Herb Exchange
All articles must meet the following requirements. Exceptions may be made in some cases where the content allows for changes against our requirements.
- Please only send one herb-related article idea at a time.
- Articles must be at least 1,200 words. Longer is better, but do not stuff words to make the article longer. If it tells the story successfully in less words, we’ll consider it. This requirement is to discourage “SEO” articles that provide fluff and nothing else.
- All articles must include relevant sources. You didn’t write your article without doing any research, did you?
- Please only put one space after each period. Two spaces is a holdover from the days of typewriters that has no modern relevance.
- You must be able to provide a reciprocal link to our site or your blog post after we publish. We must approve the site you submit for the reciprocal link.
