Enter your content:
  • Title
  • Lead-in image - We have specific image guidelines that you must follow:
    • Give your file a name that hints to it's contents such as IMG-hotair-balloon-festival.jpg. 
    • Your image must be 1600px wide by 500px tall.
    • You must include a title, alt, and credit/attribution via the media loader.
    • You may submit your own original photo/video/graphic, or find one that is free to use. (See this article from Inc. magazine (link is external) for sources of free images.) Follow the instructions on the source website for how to credit the image. If you cannot find one, the editorial committee will choose one for you.
  • Body - If you copy and paste your article from a word document, please select all and clear it of formatting prior to submission. This will remove extraneous HTML coding that could break your post. It's the icon that looks like Tx. 


  • Tags - Fill in the "Tags" field with one or two succinct terms that describe the content of your blog. This will autopopulate with tags that already exist, or you can write-in a new one. Separate tags by commas.

Add Relationships:
  • Click the "Relationships" tab on the left to add your name in the "Author" field, and to add the names of fellows mentioned in the blog (if any). For podcasts: interviewers/hosts go in the Author field. This will autopopulate, so as you type you will see suggestions in a drop down list. Note that this searches only by first OR last name, not both.


Save your draft and preview it. If you are satisfied with how it looks, change the moderation state from "draft" to "needs review." This will send your post to your peer editors for review. This is a very important step. You post will not move any further without it!
