Contribution Guidelines:

  1. Your contribution should be relevant to location independent ladies. No religious or political posts. The vibe of your article should be positive overall. It’s ok to talk about difficult issues, but you will need to put a positive spin on them at the end to make sure that the magazine isn’t lowering the vibe of any reader. A way to do this is to perhaps provide a positive solution to the difficult issue at the end.
  2. We reserve the right to reject any articles/videos/audio that we don’t feel are a good fit without a reason.
  3. Your articles/video/audio should not be promotional in nature unless they are part of the ‘offers’ or ‘events’ categories. They should be educational, inspiring and informative.
  4. Your contribution, if approved, will be posted on all the social media sites of GLILA. Please be sure to also post your article/video/audio on your own social media sites in order to increase the reach for GLILA and thus get more eyes on your next article. Thanks!
  5. If your first contribution is approved, you may post a new article/video/audio once a week.
  6. Your contribution should be original and should not appear elsewhere except on your personal blog.
  7. Please make sure that any text within your content is copyright-free (such as quotes / scientific studies, etc).
  8. If you submit content to us, while we will do our best to publish the article/video/audio as accurately as possible, we cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.
  9. We may need to edit your article or images to fit within the formatting of our website.
  10. You agree to not publish the identical content on another site. You could perhaps change the headline, use different images and perhaps move the sentences/paragraphs around a bit and that would be ok.

 

Article Guidelines:

  1. Use Grammarly (or similar) to check for any major grammatical and spelling errors. Articles with many grammar/spelling mistakes unfortunately cannot be accepted.
  2. Your article should be a minimum of 700 words and less than 3500 words. Keep paragraphs to 7 or 8 sentences and include highlighted text that you’d like to emphasize between some of the paragraphs. Avoid overly long sentences. Try to make the first sentence of each paragraph the most important one, so that if a reader is skimming the article, they can pick up on the main idea of each paragraph quickly.
  3. Please include 3 jpg images, as specified below. Canva is a great free program for making graphics. Articles without associated images cannot be accepted. Please make sure that you have legal rights to use the images. If your images do not fit these criteria, we reserve the right to replace it with a stock photo.
    1. Featured image (850 x 567). Please keep text, borders and graphic overlays out of the featured image if possible.
    2. One other image for the body of your article (850 x 567)
    3. One Pinterest-size graphic, you must have the title of your content on this graphic (735 x 1102).
  4. You may include affiliate links in your articles.
  5. Submit articles in plain text format (i.e. Wordpad or TextEdit) and not with Word.

 

Video Guidelines:

  1. If you are submitting a video (youtube link) instead, please avoid promoting your products and services in the video.
  2. Please keep swearing to a minimum.
  3. The video should have good lighting and clear sound.
  4. Your video should be hosted on YouTube and you agree that we will add it to the playlist of the GLILA YouTube site.
  5. All videos should have subtitles. Please create subtitles or provide us with a written script. This is really important for ladies who have impaired hearing, or are watching in a noisy environment.
  6. Please include 2 jpg images, as specified below. Canva is a great free program for making graphics. Articles without associated images cannot be accepted. Please make sure that you have legal rights to use the images. The images should be clear and of good quality. If your images do not fit these criteria, we reserve the right to replace it with a stock photo.
    1. Featured image (850 x 567). Please keep text, borders and graphic overlays out of the featured image if possible.
    2. One Pinterest-size graphic, you must have the title of your content on this graphic (735 x 1102).
  7. Please write a short paragraph to let our readers know what this video is about.
