Smart Girl Stories Content Submission Process

Submitting a piece of content for our blog involves several key steps to ensure quality and consistency. Please follow the process outlined below:

First, review our guidelines: Before writing your content, thoroughly review our Writer’s Guidelines listed above. Ensure your submission aligns with our editorial standards, tone, and style requirements.
Oh and what type of dog did Hannah have? If you know this answer, you read the guidelines.

Craft your story: Crack your knuckles, sit in a comfy seat, and let those keys sing a tune! Outside of the site – perhaps on Word or Notepad, write a compelling and engaging blog post that resonates with our target audience. Adhere to the word count specified in the writer’s guidelines. Remember to ensure your content is original, well-researched, and free of plagiarism. Do not write using AI. Proof sure, but don’t write with AI. We’ll check.

Please proofread and edit: Trust us, we see so many articles written by writers with typos. Carefully proofread your work for grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and clarity. Consider using tools like Grammarly or Hemingway App to enhance your editing process.

Locate and prepare to upload a feature photo: Select a high-quality feature photo that complements your blog post. The image should be at least 1200 x 800 pixels. You must be in the photo. not you in a crowd from space. You can be in space, the photo can be of you in space, but you cannot take the photo from space, while you are on the planet. We won’t see you;-) And for the love of all that exists in the world of copyrights – ensure you have the rights to use the photo.

No joke – Your wedding photo…is probably owned by the photographer and might not be allowed on your site. The award photo from your award event for which you got the award doing that thing…is possibly owned by the photographer. The professional photo shoot you did for your corporate headshots…is owned by the photographer. All photos must have proper attribution. (But but but it’s of me and I know them, and I just took…). If someone took a photo of you, and you paid them, they probably own the rights. Ask, and attribute.
