Content:

“How To” articles:

Write an intro of 2-4 sentences, and then use bullet points, numeric points, or subheadings, each followed by 1-2 short paragraphs. Use bold or underlining to highlight subheads, or the intro to a bullet, or numeric point.

Example of subheads for “How To” articles: 2. Belly dancing increases circulation.

Then, include brief explanation of how it increases circulation and enhances fertility. Incorporate key words into title and body, such as: “older moms, older mom, moms over 40, pregnant after 40, advanced maternal age, baby over 40, pregnant over 45, older first time moms, mature moms, midlife moms”. But don’t overdo the key words! Keep the writing punchy, interesting and informative.

“Personal Story” articles:

Don’t worry about format initially–just start at the beginning and write from the heart. After you’ve done, please go over it to correct spelling and grammar. We’ll edit the length for you after submission. Please include a brief description of yourself in the Byline (see below). If you have a blog or an online business, we can include it.

Length:

It should be no longer than 500-600 words for the blog, and 40 words for your bio.

Byline/Self Promotion:

HOW TO TITLES: Include a byline under the title: e.g., “By Dr. Jane Doe, Medical Director of ABC Health Centers.” We cannot include a live link in the byline for technical reasons. Provide a photograph of yourself, and a 1-paragraph (1-3 sentences) bio, including a live hyperlink to your site.

PERSONAL STORY TITLES: Byline under the title, e.g., “By Jane Doe, mother and parenting blogger, Wisconsin, USA”, or “By Jane Doe, mother and part-time estate agent, Surrey, England”, or just “Jane Doe, Ontario, Canada”. Include a photo of you and your children.
