Guest post guidelines — basic rules
- The guest article must be unique and not previously published.
- Obviously: in English, and of a high enough standard that we don’t have to spend half a day editing and rewriting your work.
- 700+ words with no sign of useless filler language.
- Feel free to link external sites (appropriately — and source your claims), but submit with the understanding that we reserve the right to remove dodgy links and make any other kind of quality related edit.
Various things we like
- Top 10s of things that we love individually but now it’s all in one story (Top 10s can be 7, or 10, or 15 — or any number. Confusing, I know!) (example: 15 most legendary Reddit threads of all time).
- Interesting rundowns on things, events, people, cultures, and legends from history (example: Being a hobo was hard—’Hoboglyphs’ made it easier).
- Mysteries (examples: 52 Hertz: the mystery of the loneliest whale in the world, 10 mysterious caves and tunnels nobody can explain).
- Cool but slightly offbeat science (example: This is why some people have that disgusting cheesy feet smell).
- Weird and offbeat topics, subcultures, and ideas (example: The stomach-turning online world of ‘popping’).
- Surprising twists on something mundane (example: How people used to download games from the radio).
- The mind-boggling (example: in this article we relay the tale of a man so willfully stupid that it starts to get scientifically curious, and here we dig up a 1950s kids’ toy that came with real uranium).
- The bone-chilling (example: Haunting last words of doomed airplane pilots).
- The bizarre and absurd (example: Cruel and unusual: history’s most disturbing medical treatments).
- The paranormal, macabre, spooky, haunting, and freaky (example: Cops share their creepiest paranormal encounters).
- It’s just cool (example: Five true tales of beer saving the day).
- Guides and how-to’s that are either supremely useful or unusual (example: Are you being followed?).
- Opinion and thought pieces if you have something very interesting or novel to say. This one is only for smarties.
- Personal experiences if it provides an insight into something that people are curious about (example: This is what it’s like selling drugs on the deepweb).
