author   by Plain Jane  2017

 

We’re always looking for new authors. As a contributor for us, you will inspire people to lead their happiest and healthiest lives.

OUR CONTENT

does not represent a diversity of viewpoints. We are green, but we are NOT afraid of technology. We are not afraid to call out green-washing, either.

OUR PURPOSE

is to promote truth.

TOPICS WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

  • Green living,
  • Vegetarian recipes (meat is ok if you write about another culture),
  • Eastern European cuisine (yes, that will be meat, unfortunately),
  • Recipes for diabetics,
  • Doable DIYs, but not too crafty with too much pink,
  • Insightful personal essays,
  • Culture in general,
  • Nostalgia,
  • Cultural appropriation of Eastern European cultures,
  • Exploitation in fashion industry,
  • Actionable life tips,
  • Shopping guides for the green individual,
  • Original beauty tutorials using green products (no Dior, Chanel or Revlon here),
  • Small-space living,
  • Travel. You do not have to travel anywhere. You can write about the place where you live,
  • Technology!,
  • Men’s health and fashion,
  • … Any other topic that will challenge our readers and move our industry forward.

VOICE and TONE GUIDELINES

DO:

Be original. Posts must be unique and original to lifebyyou.com. Posts must not have been published or submitted elsewhere online (including your personal blog) or be slated for distribution on other sites.

Shine. Be honest and authentic, and let your personality come through in your writing.

Add to the conversation. How can your piece add to what's already there?

Include photos.

Write in your own voice. How would you explain your idea to a good friend? Use that conversational tone when you write.

We welcome edgy topics, but please don’t resort to shock value.

DO NOT:

Send SEO-driven submissions. But we do accept submissions or bio references that promote a business or service in line with our green philosophy.

Hyperlink. Please don’t hyperlink your text. Put relevant links in brackets: [http://something.com].

INCLUDE:

Any relevant images for your post. Send only images that you own. Send as separate files, not pasted within a document.

Your bio (120 words or less) with links to your website, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter pages, in brackets: [http://pinterest.com/yourname].

A headshot or photo of you to use for your bio.

To submit, email us at editor (at) lifebyyou.com.

WHAT WE PUBLISH

We publish three types of content:

  • Features (1,500–2,500 words).
  • Articles (600–1,500 words). More casual in tone and content.
  • Mini-articles (500–600 words). Short and sweet.

PAY

Do we pay? Yes, but we are a small company with small budget.

AFTER YOU ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED

Share it with everyone, but do not spam.

We look forward to your contribution!
