Staff Writer Guideline

We are looking for writers to submit articles and reviews for the FHA Loan Blog.

Article Requirement

These are the attributes I am looking for in articles written by staff writers:

  • The article must be your original content, not published anywhere before.
  • Topics: The article should seek to help readers or answer questions. As such articles that start with “How To”, “What Is”, “Should I”, “Top XX”, “Introduction to”, “Best…”, etc. are preferred. Writer should submit topics for pre-approval, or select from a list of recommended topics (to be provided in the near future).
  • Links: You may link to any relevant articles, resource or site as you see fit. However, you should try to link to relevant articles on FHA Loan Blog first. The editor reserves the right to modify links as needed.
  • Content Style: Content should be more tutorial style with personal spin, as opposed to diary style.
  • Length: Article should be at least 450 words, no maximum — 600-1200 word articles are best. The main goal is to make your point in a clear and concise manner.
  • Frequency: There are no minimum or maximum requirements.
  • Submission: Writers must submit articles directly in WordPress. The article should be properly formatted with headings and links. Articles must be tagged with keywords, and proper category must be selected (select only 1 category).
  • Photo: Appropriate photo should be included with proper credit attribution. Flickr creative common search is recommended for this purpose. Just include the link to the photo and I’ll take care of the rest.
  • Deadline: Writer can submit articles for review at any time.
  • Promotion: Writers are encouraged to promote their articles on social media sites and carnivals, as well as link to their prior articles to maximize pageviews.

Conditions

Here are some basic terms and conditions:

  1. Paid writers can provide links within their articles. But the Admin can remove any link for any reason.
  2. Paid articles become the property of MortgageRefinancingBuzz.com/blog once published and cannot be published elsewhere.
  3. Paid writers will be identified as “Staff Writer” to clarify the ownership of articles.
  4. Paid writers will be able to edit their own bio and include up to 2 links — preferably to the home page of their site and to the RSS feed.
