  1. Take a look at our About page to get an idea of what we do and what our philosophy is. (Put simply: We create useful guides and resources for WordPress users.)

Contributor Guidelines

This is a non-definitive list of guiding principles for our content.

Keep in mind that these are subject to change at any time.

What We Like

  • Short-form content, 500-1000 words per lesson page or article.
  • Skim-friendly paragraphs. Only a few sentences, please!
  • Smart use of subheadings. (Again, skim-friendliness rules.)
  • Simple explanations and familiar examples. “Would my dentist understand this?”
  • Friendly, fun style. (The MailChimp team knows what this is all about.)
  • Also: Thoughtful writing that’s both educational and entertaining.
  • Original, substantial content. Reviews, editorials, et al.
  • Multimedia. Video, images, audio, oh my!

What We Don’t Like

  • Contributing for SEO link building. We’re not into that.
  • Blatant clickbait, uninteresting lists, or slideshows. (We’re not Upworthy.)
  • Top Ten lists (unless they’re surprisingly amazing).
  • Unoriginal/duplicate content.
