What kind of content do we accept?
While we are very open with the kind of content that we accept on our site, we do have some restrictions. Any content that you submit to us should be completely unique and it should not be published anywhere else online. If we double-check your writing and discover that it’s been spun or that it’s plagiarized, it’ll be denied. We also don’t accept press releases or product comparisons.
Beyond this, you have complete free reign over what you send to us. You can send us either pitches or drafts. If you submit a draft, we’ll be able to accept or deny it more quickly because we’ll have a front-row seat to the quality of work that you submit.
The overall quality of our content is our priority. Here is a list of some topics or ideas that you may want to use to write your content.
- Tips and Tricks
- DIY Ideas
- Home decor ideas
- Information about new products
Guidelines for Posting
If you’ve read this far and you’re still interested in submitting some of your writing to our site, here are some guidelines that you may find useful.
- Your topic should be relevant and pertain to the home decor niche. We don’t accept any posts that serve to promote the author. Rather, we use our platform to provide our readers with information.

- We welcome links in your work. However, you shouldn’t link to one of our competitors.
- Don’t forget your conclusion. At the end of your post, there should be a section dedicated to summarizing your article.

- You can send us your work either by submitting it to our website or sending it to us using Google.
- You should format your post to be interactive. This means including lists, embedded links, headings and sub-headings etc.

How to Submit
We have already mentioned this briefly but to recap, you can send us your pitches and your content either by email or through the submission section of our website.
To submit by email, you can use the email firstname.lastname@example.org. Within the email, you should attach your article. After you send it, we will work quickly to review your work. This should only take around 3 days to do. If we aren’t satisfied with the quality of the content, we won’t accept it and your writing will remain your own. You can then submit it wherever you want.
We want to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send us their writing. We receive a lot of submissions every day so we won’t be able to accept everyone’s work. However, you are free to resubmit work if it’s been declined. If your article is accepted, we’ll send you a publication date so you’ll know exactly when your article will appear on our site.
Finally, you should know that we won’t provide you with feedback for your submission and we won’t be able to tell everyone whether they’ve been rejected. If your work is accepted, we’ll contact you.
