As you can see, our posts cover all areas of Technology, including: Mobile Tips, Browsing Tricks, How TOs, Mobile Spec and Gadgets, Blogging Tutors, HTML, Computers, Affliation Programs, and more.

  • How to get free Data
  • Mobile discussion or Specification
    Should I pitch you my idea before writing the post?
    Sure! Pitch your idea by emailing us at wondanation (at) outlook. (Note that we can’t guarantee publication though until we review a completed submission. We’re happy to evaluate your pitch though before you get to writing!)

    When will I hear back from you after I send my pitch?
    We'll get back to you in less than 48hours.
    How should I submit my post?
    Please submit your post as a Google document or Alternatively Word Doc.

    We use Google Docs because it allows us to easily collaborate with several people without passing around new versions of a Word Doc.. (Don’t forget to give us editing power.)
    Tip: It’s best to create your post as a Google Doc, rather than uploading a Word Doc to Google. Sometimes if you take the latter route, we can’t edit even if you tell the doc to allow us to do so.

    How long should my posts be?
    Aim for 400-1,000 words.
    Should I include links within the piece?
    Yes. Please include links that will be helpful and relevant for the reader – they can be to an appropriate post on your site or on any other news site or blog. We ask that you include at least one links within your post to other posts on our Blog.
    Insert links in your copy via anchor text or keywords, for example, like this if you’re writing about Browsing Tricks. No HTML, please!

    Should I write a headline? 
    That’d be great! We reserve the right to tweak it for SEO, style or just to make it more attention-grabbing.
    Did you know? We actually write approximately 10-15 headlines before choosing one for a post. If you want to suggest one or two potential headlines, that makes our job easier!

    Will you edit my post?
    Yes, we’ll edit for content and clarity, doing our best to preserve your voice. You’ll be able to see our changes in your Google Doc and we’ll often work with you a few days ahead of your publishing date on edits.
    Can I repost my submission on my blog?
    No. If we run your post on WondaTech, we retain the rights to that content. We don’t allow republishing on your own blog or any other website. (Did you know reposting content can hurt SEO traffic results for everyone involved? We try to keep it tidy around here.)

    Are you definitely going to publish my piece?
    We reserve the right to not publish your post if we decide it’s not a strong fit for Our BLOG. You are then free to publish it elsewhere.
    Should I include a photo?
    Yes if need be. but, We’ll definitely add one.

    What about my headshot?
    Our system uses your email to grab your headshot from Gravatar, so make sure your photo is uploaded there.

    What should I do after I submit my post?
    When it runs, we hope you’ll be active in the comments, responding to readers’ questions or thoughts. We also hope you’ll share your post on social media!
    We look forward to your contribution!
    Ready to pitch your idea or submit your post?

    Before you submit, please run through this checklist. Did you…

      • Add your name, email, website, and Facebook Profile to the top of your post?
      • Include your one-sentence bio at the top of your post? (HTML, please, if you know how!)
      • Add at least two links within your post to other posts on The Write Life? (Use relevant keyword anchors like this.)
      • Turn your post into an editable Google Doc? (Because Google can be finicky, that means creating your post as a Google Doc — cutting and pasting if you’ve written it in Word — rather than uploading a Word Doc to Drive.)
        If so, you’re ready to submit!
        Please use the Contact Us form and we'll reply you with the email you'll be sending your Google Doc to.
