SIX QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR ARTICLE.
Please consider the following six questions before submitting your article.
Is my piece inspiring, informative, and/or educational? Posts featured on The Daily Guru are positive, uplifting and educational. If your piece is negative, sarcastic, or not related to personal development or wellbeing, your article is not likely to suit DG.
Are you trained/qualified to be sharing your ideas on the subject you are choosing? We receive many well-intended article submissions at The Daily Guru, which are very interesting to read. However, sadly, the writer does not have the qualifications to be sharing their advice and tips with our audience and therefore we have to turn it down. It’s very important that the ideas and advice being shared on the DG can be supported by evidence and/or qualifications in that particular field.
What’s a great title? Remember: our readers are busy. A good title has the potential to grab their attention and make them want to read your piece. If you’re stuck trying to create one, ask yourself: what problem does my article solve? How will reading this article make someone’s life better? How can I make the actions points of my article, easy to follow?
Is my first paragraph succinct? You only get one chance to make a first impression! Does your introductory sentence make the reader want to continue? Does your first paragraph tell the reader very clearly and succinctly what the article will be about?
Am I including actionable tips? Many readers come to The Daily Guru to find solutions to some of the crises and challenges they experience in their life. A great piece will provide tips that they can implement easily.
