The dos and don'ts of writing for Simonseeks

by cathy.baldwin

We have enjoyed a lot of interest from new writers in 2010 and now have a total of 735 writers on the site.

Although our newer guides are of a high quality, there are a number of ways that new (and old) writers can boost their ratings and make their guides work well on the site. We have put together a list of dos and don’ts which covers these - take a quick look before you submit your next guide. These aren’t just tips on how to write, we also offer advice on how to format contact information, our ideal word count and how to take and submit photographs.

Don’t forget to look at our other blog posts on writing guides as well - like our wish list for new guides - and be inspired before you write your next guide by reading past competition winners’ guides.
