Healthideas’s mission is to provide readers quality articles about healthy nutrition, lifestyle, natural cure, exercise, yoga, ayurveda, and sustainable living.
Why should you write for us?
– you can promote your own work and website through your personal profile
– you’ll have your voice heard by publishing your article or recipe
– you’ll have the fortune of connecting with like minded people and inspire those who are still reluctant
– you can change and touch lives of the members of our quickly growing digital community
– you can increase the exposure of your writing to the masses
At the moment please write to us in only English language.
— We offer a wide array of articles for our readers, from healthy foods, whole foods plant-based recipes, health tips, personal experiences, nutrition, diseases and natural cure, psychology, exercise, weight loss and more.
— Keep it real. Your article should naturally flow using the same language and tone you would use while telling a story to your friends. Your article should not read like a textbook, but more like someone explaining to you the contents of one chapter in their own words. Stay away from scholarly essays, and be fun and inclusive!
— Original content is not required but always encouraged. If your work has been published elsewhere, please receive permission to re-publish the content on our site, let us know and be sure to include a link to where the post originated. By submitting your article you are giving us the right to publish it on our site.
— Posts should be between 750-1500 words. Do not assume the reader knows exactly what you are talking about. Simply detailed explanations are best.
— If your writing includes something that will need an external link please include them in your submission email. We will always try first to include internal links where relevant but if there is anything outstanding that you know is needed please just include the links at the bottom of the post and let us know where they go. Please do not insert the link into the submission yourself as sometimes it doesn’t properly transfer over to the HTML code on the site.
— We reserve the right to edit submitted material. We are so grateful for your work, and we will never change extreme amounts of the content without contacting and working with you first. Most often editing applies to grammar and format.
— Pictures – It is great, if you have photographs you would like to use and you own them. If you have photographs that you don’t own but would like to use please include a link to where you found them. Depending on the licensing of said pictures we may or may not be able to include them, and if we can’t we will find something we can use.
— Lists and Top 10 (or another number) posts always do well, i.e. “5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System” “10 Reasons to Drink Lapacho Tea”.
— The numbers one through nine should be spelled and 10 starts numeric digits. Try not to start sentences with numbers.
— Please use only single spaces after periods or other punctuation at the end of a sentence.
— Title and the featured image are everything. Try to come up with a great title, and if you have a great picture to use please send it over. Titles are subject to change under the editor’s supervision but will usually be generated from the body of work.
— Keep it personal – why do you feel this way or that – personal experience tying you to what you are expressing through written word. Speak from the heart, people can sense when you aren’t – even over the internet.
SPREADING THE WORD:
— The most popular articles (the ones with the most page views, facebook “likes”, comments, etc.) on our website will receive the most exposure on our site, newsletter, and social networks. Below are some tips to help you get the word out.
— Please include links to your work featured on Healthideas to any personal blog or website you have.
— When your post goes live, please post to FB, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc. and use tags when appropriate. The more people who see your post the better it is for your exposure and ours, the more people that come to our site, the more who will see your article. Send it out through email to your family and friends, start promoting other writers whose work you enjoy on our site, and surely others will promote yours – start engaging in or build a new social community this way.
— Engage readers by asking questions, ask for opinions, comment where appropriate, and stay humble.
— If the blog you have written includes a specific product or book, etc., email the company or author with the link, and include all of the corresponding handles and tags while promoting.
— Comment on other people’s blog posts and include a link to your own if it’s relevant!
