To make sure that the quality of content that we offer to our readers remains high, Liahona has guest post guidelines you will need to adhere to before we choose to publish your work on our website. These contributor writer posting guidelines are:
- High-quality article - First and foremost, your submitted article must provide high-quality content to our readers. We will not accept any article that reads like it was thrown together and lacks a cohesive message. Be sure the article is focused and reads well before submitting.
- Appropriate topics - When considering what to write for our audience, we encourage you to focus on topics which relate to the parenting of teenagers. Tangentially, these topics can also include current issues teens struggle with, medical conditions which can affect how parents raise teens, and other considerations.
- Minimum word count - To help ensure that contributor submissions provide quality, we require that all guest posts be at least 750 words long at minimum. You are welcome to write more, though submissions over 2,000 words may be broken into two articles.
- Article formatting - When it comes to the readability of your content, be sure to use subtitles and other text-enrichment tools such as numbered lists, bold fonts, etc.
- Article tone - On Liahona, we have striven to provide our readers with high-quality information on parenting troubled teens. To conform to this, your guest post should have a positive tone overall while remaining informational.
- 100% unique - As mentioned prior, we are only accepting articles that are unique content and have not been published before. We will be checking before we accept any contributor article.
- Liahona links - Inside of the content of your article, we require that you have two in-text links to pages on Liahona. Any of our educational pages or blog posts will work as links.
- Outside links - Outside links to resources such as studies, infographics, and authorities sites with statistics are acceptable to link to within your article. These resource links should add value to your article and strengthen your overall message. We will NOT accept links which lead to loan sites, gambling websites, e-commerce websites, adult entertainment websites, or spammy websites. We also will NOT accept links that go to other websites which deal with troubled teen treatment such as rehabilitation centers, troubled teen boarding schools, or similar sites. Liahona reserves the right to remove any links we deem as inappropriate without notifying the writer.
- Error-free content - As there are many free and paid tools you can use to ensure your submitted guest post is error-free, we expect submissions to have no spelling errors and next to no grammatical issues.
