How to write a great article!

I get this question often.  Here’s our best tips.

1.  Write from the heart.  Readers can tell if you write something just for the views.  Instead, share your real emotions.  Be genuine, be heartfelt, be you.  

2.  Keep your article around 600-800 words or less.

3.  If you are submitting food related posts, your photography needs to be top notch!  

4.  Share, share and share some more!  Your friends and family want to read your story!  

5.  Don’t compare.  Your story is unique and awesome.  You are unique and awesome.  Remember that when you write.
