If you want to publish and even earn from your articles, submit to Dumb little man:
Anyone can submit an article and everyone is eligible to win a monthly award. You don’t have to have a website, a blog, or any alternative agenda. All you need is a little fire inside that wants to help the average person’s life become easier. With that alone, you are in good shape.
So, before you send me anything, let’s determine your goals. Do you:
Simply want to contribute to the community?
Want to get a little publicity to your blog?
Want to win a monthly award?
Become a regular writer on the site and possibly get paid for writing?
I am open to any of these scenarios as long as it’s good, clean, informative writing.
Ok, here are a couple of rules:
Know that I am pretty picky about what gets published. I receive about a dozen articles each day and I publish one or two. If you want to run an idea past me before you spend time on writing it, PLEASE do. I don’t want anyone to waste their time.
Here are some other requirements that need to be followed. Most of these are self explanatory and very obvious.
You must write ALL of the content as opposed to saying “Jim wrote a cool article, click here to read it”. You can however reference pertinent sites in your post as long as you link to them.
Please do not use any affiliate links, attempt to Rickroll our readers, or refer to any spam sites.
Don’t be upset if I edit your writing for grammar, punctuation or even sentence structure. I will not change the meaning of your article or your point of view, however I have been known to rewrite entire paragraphs that are confusing or wordy.
The article you submit cannot be published on other sites, including your own.
By submitting an article to DLM, you are simply granting me the right to keep it on our site and you are agreeing not to submit the article to anyone else’s site. Know that the content is ultimately yours and that your name will stay with it wherever it goes.
All in all, it’s simple; write something that’s honest and email it to me. Be sure to include a small bio and photo that I can include with the article so everyone knows who wrote it. If you need a sample, see the end of this article.
Once I receive your article, I’ll edit it, add an image, and put it into the schedule. In return, you will get some publicity from my readers and possibly the audience of Shine and Divine Caroline, two sites that frequently pick up our articles to share with their readers.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
