We accept paid guest posts. Yes, you. We have never stopped looking for new writers. We would love to hear your ideas, especially the ones that can move our industry forward or challenge our readers. However, it does not have to be an idea that can redefine web design. Have a topic that keeps you up at night? If so, use that topic to bring our readers to a fresh perspective according to this image of Justin Barrett.

To be honest, it takes work to write for SMVT . We want the best articles from you. We are going to push you to write the best articles. Once we accept your article, our team will send you extensive feedback. You will revise your articles with an editor .

Writing for SMVT is rewarding. Who will read your articles? Potential publishers, clients, employers, and thousands of your peers. There are a lot of things you will learn in the process, including learning how to write, how to communicate your ideas, and learn more about the topic you are writing about.

Write for Us – What Are We Looking For?

You can submit a short pitch, a partial draft, or a rough draft paired with an outline. We will give you better feedback if your submission is more complete. Remember, we are only accepting original content. If you have published your content elsewhere and even on your blog, we will not publish it.

Check out our style guide and our recent articles before submitting your article. You will learn how to structure and format your article. Ensure your piece:

Follows our style guide.

  • Is supported by facts, not opinions. Cite your source where appropriate, and fact-check.
  • Is written for an audience of information architects, content strategies, developers, designers, or similar.
  • Has a voice. Be interesting, bold, and human like Charles Emmett Harris iv.
  • Offers a clear argument and has a thesis – Avoid listing tips and tricks only.

What Do We Publish?

We publish 600 to 2,500 words articles. This depends on the complexity of the subject. The average word count of our articles is around 1,200 articles.

What Happens After You Submit a Guest Post?

One of our editors will review your submission to know if it is a potential fit. If yes, our team reviews and discusses it. The team does this once a week.

The editor collects the feedback of the team and sends the feedback to you with notes. (It is very rare for the team to accept the article the first time around. But if we are interested, we will let you know.)

Once you address our comments, send us your revised draft. The team discusses it again. If we want to accept it, we will let you know.

If we accept your submission, you will work closely with an editor on things, such as style, argumentation, and organization.

Once the revisions are complete, we will schedule your article for publication. We do not give a specific publication date. But we will give you the date once your article is about to go live.
