    Style Guidelines & Requirements

    If we accept your proposed topic, we have some guidelines on how to submit your post. Following each of these steps will make life easier for everyone.

    • Read our blog. Develop a sense of what we publish.
    • Follow us on social media. Common sense, how do you expect us to support you if you can’t even support us with follows, likes, tweets, and shares?
    • Tell a story. Cover who, what, when, where, how, and why.
    • Be creative. Your post must be relevant and targeted towards the cannabis community.
    • Do your research. Use data and statistics to back up your claims. You must cite your sources, images and provide links.
    • Break Up Text. No more than three sentences per paragraph. We like simple reads.
    • Must Use H2 and H3 Subtitles. Stick to H2 and H3 sub-headers, all articles must have a minimum of two sub-headers to break the article down into a simple read.
    • Your post must be comprehensive. Your post needs to cover its topic in full with no missing details.
    • Your post must be actionable. Telling people what to do isn’t enough. You need to show your reader how to get things done.
    • Your post must be at least 800 words. If you’re going to be actionable and comprehensive, it’s tough to write less than this many words.
    • You must propose a target keyword. It doesn’t necessarily need to have a high search volume.
    • Your post will not be published elsewhere. We prefer fresh, original content that’s targeted to our readers.
    • If your post is published, we’ll ask that you respond to all comments for the first 30 days after it’s posted. We use Disqus, and or facebook which makes it easy to stay notified when new comments appear.
    • Be thoughtful when including links. Posts with too many links back to your domain will look spammy and will be rejected.
    • Self-promotion. Avoid promoting your tool or company in your post. Your author bio is a good place to do that.
    • Give credit. Check your facts and quotations. Cite your sources.
    • Let your heart show. Where appropriate, share your feelings!

    Do you edit submitted posts?

    Yes, we reserve the right to edit all posts submitted for consideration to the Maryjane’s Post Blog. If your post requires major changes, we will loop you in and work together on edits. If your post needs minor edits, we may make the changes without notifying you.

    This doesn’t happen frequently, but we also reserve the right to not publish your post if we decide it’s not a strong fit for the blog. You are then free to publish it elsewhere.

    After the post appears on Maryjane’s Post, can I republish it on my own blog?

    The blog post must remain exclusive to Maryjane’s Post for 60 days. After that, you are free to republish your post, but make sure to note that the post originally appeared on Maryjane’s Post.

    Maryjane’s Post has content partnerships with select media outlets who have the option to republish posts that originally appear on the Maryjane’s Post blog. If your post is republished to one of these sites, your byline will be included and the post will link back to the original Maryjane’s Post post with your full bio.
