First off, thank you for wanting to contribute to Daily News X . It means a lot that someone like you wants to write for us. So thanks btw here are some of the things that you should take care of.
Long-form content is awesome. I don’t really like to have a minimum word count, but 500 seems OK. If you can go into great detail and break down your topic (and subtopic), then 500 words shouldn’t be a problem.
No blocks of text. The text should be easy to read. That means keeping your sentences and paragraphs short and to the point. Also, using subheadings properly (h2, h3, etc).
Include lots of images. You know what they say, images speak louder than words. All images should be 600px (wide), no exceptions. Unless, of course, infographics.
Show proof and give examples. You can link to credible sources, case studies, and epic content. Also, you can provide screenshots for examples and instructions.
Don’t be self-promotional. That includes no affiliate links.
Don’t send a draft full of errors. Before submitting your post, make sure you proofread it a few times and edit.
