All perfectly normal, expected, and totally not a problem.
If you want any of your site/blog’s content shared with the Wordpreneur Reader audience, just use the contact form to bring it to my attention. Simple.
I don’t think I need to bother writing down how-to steps and specifics for this. You can figure all that out.
It’s also plainly obvious that submission commits or obligates me to nothing. Or I may take a liking and feature some other content on your site instead of the post you’re pushing. None of that’s within your control.
Interestingly, someone actually asked this in his query: “Does it have to be well-written?”
Well, let me answer that. The default answer is no, it doesn’t have to be written well. If it’s informative and useful to Wordpreneur readers in my estimation, it’s game.
Now for the practical truth: If the writing sucks so much that it gets in the way of actually absorbing and learning the content, we’re seriously looking at a no go… unless the info just happens to be absolutely brilliant and worth digging through the muck to get to, of course.
That’s rare, though, wouldn’t you agree? I think that answers that.
Harsh? Nope, reality. That pretty much how acceptance of this kind of nonfic content works: well-written is of no value if the information is meh; good info can overcome meh writing; really odious writing can screw things up majorly unless the info is pure gold.
I guess you can consider that a tip. Keep it in mind as you develop nonfic content for whatever. Stressing out over the quality of the writing, as I’ve seen more than a few do, is really, well, silly. Where writing’s concerned, what it really comes down to is this:
Keep trying for great. Aim for good. Settle for OK. Just get it done.
The good info part of the equation? Well, that’s non-negotiable. Won’t always hit it, but you’ll definitely want significantly more hits than misses if you want to get anywhere. I’d say worry about that more than the writing, if you’re the worrying sort.
Well, worry about all that later and quickly scan through today’s selection of Reader featured items. I’d say there’s an excellent chance one or more of these you’ll consider “good info” for your particular wordpreneurial needs. Have fun!
