We are not currently accepting new guest blog posts.
Bylined articles (750 to 1,000 words of body content) conveying valuable how-to content from an objective viewpoint (practical advice, actionable tips, useful know-how) are more likely to meet MedicareWire standards — and therefore more likely to be accepted for publication.
Why contribute bylined “how-to” articles?
Our massive catalogs of health insurance plans and health care facilities bring us large volumes of new site visitors who explore our blog content and community. This offers MedicareWire bloggers an excellent opportunity to expose their website to a new, expanding audience. As a MedicareWire.com contributor, you have an extensive profile where readers can find your social media, website and more information about you. You are also permitted one self-serving hyperlink (do-follow) to your own website, so long as it it not promoting a product.
If you are interested in becoming a contributor…
If you are interested in becoming a contributor, on a one-time or regular basis, here are some guidelines for success:
- Articles must be original to the author and unpublished elsewhere (MedicareWire.com does not publish duplicate content).
- Articles must offer readers clear advice, practical how-to tip and takeaways related to a specific wellness topic. Fast reading bullet points are good, filler text is not.
- The beginning of your article should include 2-4 bullet points that summarize the main takeaways for the reader.
- Include a brief bio (25 to 30 words), a recent head-shot picture, and the URLs to your personal website, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus pages.
- Include relevant links in parentheses next to the words to be linked (do not embed the links).
- Submit articles in Word format, as email attachments.
- If you submit an article that mentions a business or companies in which you have a vested interest, including affiliate relationships, disclose this relationship to the audience.
- The author retains copyright, but MedicareWire may reprint your piece, with full attribution, in MedicareWire products, including marketing materials.
- We do not pay guest contributors for their occasional articles.
- We do not publish press releases.
We will inform you if your article has been accepted for publication; expect to hear from us within five business days after receipt of your email. Emails without an article attached for consideration will be ignored.
Articles accepted for publication will likely be edited for brevity and clarity, and to conform to the MedicareWire style. In most cases, we will change your article’s title, so you are encouraged to suggest several alternatives.
